The Last Leap into the Ineffable, pp. 383-384

Opening Remarks
An extreme form of spirituality takes the recourse to vanishing completely and for good into the Ineffable Mystery.

Beyond the limits of thought
Others escaped from the confines of thought
To where Mind motionless sleeps waiting Light’s birth,
And came back quivering with a nameless Force,
Drunk with a wine of lightning in their cells;
Intuitive knowledge leaping into speech,
Seized, vibrant, kindling with the inspired word,
Hearing the subtle voice that clothes the heavens,
Carrying the splendour that has lit the suns,
They sang Infinity’s names and deathless powers
In metres that reflect the moving worlds,
Sight’s sound-waves breaking from the soul’s great deeps.

Some went beyond the last limits of mortal thought into the Superconscient Wisdom and returned quivering with delight and light. Their speech burdened with Intuition was seized with inspiration and the ring of truth descending from the heights. It carried the splendour of the suns and burst out into lyric poems and songs filled with the Names of God and His Powers. They expressed what they saw in metres sublime.

Lost to the person
Some lost to the person and his strip of thought
In a motionless ocean of impersonal Power,
Sat mighty, visioned with the Infinite’s light,
Or, comrades of the everlasting Will,
Surveyed the plan of past and future Time.

Some were lost to all sense of name and form and thought. They sat in the ocean of motionless Peace or the impersonal Power. They sat mighty filled with the Infinite’s light. Others were aware of the everlasting Will behind all things and surveyed the past, present and future in a single glance.

Some winged like birds out of the cosmic sea
And vanished into a bright and featureless Vast:
Some silent watched the universal dance,
Or helped the world by world-indifference.

Some flew out of the cosmos and vanished in a bright and featureless Vast. Some silently watched the dance of creation or helped the world by remaining indifferent towards it drawing all things upwards by their mere presence.

Uncompanioned reached the Ineffable
Some watched no more merged in a lonely Self,
Absorbed in the trance from which no soul returns,
All the occult world-lines for ever closed,
The chains of birth and person cast away:
Some uncompanioned reached the Ineffable.

Some watched no more the cosmic play remaining absorbed in the trance of the lonely Self from where none returns. They closed all lines of return and cast away a bondage to name and form and thereby pf karma. Some reached uncompanioned the Ineffable Mystery.

Closing Remarks
Thus we see here the highest climb that the old world could provide for man.
