The spirit’s truth is hidden behind appearances. It needs an inward turn and an intuitive eye to discover it.
Mystic and ineffable
But hidden, but denied to mortal grasp,
Mystic, ineffable is the spirit’s truth,
Unspoken, caught only by the spirit’s eye.
There is a mystic truth hidden at the roots of life, at the apex and source of creation, in the core of all things. Our mind is unable to grasp it nor can it be understood by our present faculties. It is only when the spirit’s eye awakens within that we can behold It.
Eternity ensphering life
When naked of ego and mind it hears the Voice;
It looks through light to ever greater light
And sees Eternity ensphering Life.
It is only when the cover of the ego is removed and the barriers of mind transcended that we can hear the voice of truth. Then light grows within and we see Eternity surrounding our mortal finite life.
This greater Truth is foreign to our thoughts;
Where a free Wisdom works, they seek for a rule;
Or we only see a tripping game of Chance
Or a labour in chains forced by bound Nature’s law,
An absolutism of dumb unthinking Power.
Our mind tends to limit things by rule and norm. Our thoughts must define things and set them into firm boundaries. But the Wisdom working in Nature works with a certain amount of plasticity and an absolute freedom. It sees the total truth hidden behind appearances and acts accordingly. There is no set standard rule. The steps of this Wisdom are determined by the unique and total vision of things at a given moment. But our mind wanting to discover the rule behind it is unable to comprehend the movements of Wisdom and hence declares it all to be a play of Chance or Nature’s laws working mechanically this wonderful universe.
Audacious in their sense of God-born strength
These dared to grasp with their thought Truth’s absolute;
By an abstract purity of godless sight,
By a percept nude, intolerant of forms,
They brought to Mind what Mind could never reach
And hoped to conquer Truth’s supernal base.
The beings of Greater Mind however tried to grasp the absolute Truth with their subtle thoughts. Their sight grown pure by being stripped of percept and freedom from form went deep into the very core of all things where Truth’s base can be found. Thus they hoped to conquer and bring down Truth to the human mind.
The bodiless Will-to-be
A stripped imperative of conceptual phrase
Architectonic and inevitable
Translated the unthinkable into thought:
A silver-winged fire of naked subtle sense,
An ear of mind withdrawn from the outward’s rhymes
Discovered the seed-sounds of the eternal Word,
The rhythm and music heard that built the worlds,
And seized in things the bodiless Will to be.
Stripped of concepts these could translate the Unthinkable into thought and speech. Their subtle senses awakened and freed from the surface mind’s net discovered the seed sounds of the eternal Word and the Will that brought forth everything into existence.
To read the Unknowable and to translate the Unthinkable into thought is the work of these beings. They carry a light within, the light of intuition that can show them things hidden behind appearances.
