This is the secret plan and it shall be fulfilled when greater and greater powers of life descend upon earth, eventually the very Highest comes down in response to the call and cry of life.
The descent of Delight
And when that greater Self comes sea-like down
To fill this image of our transience,
All shall be captured by delight, transformed:
In waves of undreamed ecstasy shall roll
Our mind and life and sense and laugh in a light
Other than this hard limited human day,
The body’s tissues thrill apotheosised,
Its cells sustain bright metamorphosis.
Life has emerged as a wave out of the infinite ocean of Delight.
Slowly this world is awakening and preparing itself for the descent and embodying of Delight in earthly life and material forms. It is only this Delight, this transforming Love that can eventually transfigure this life and even this body made of hard clay moulded by rigid mind into a wave of Ecstasy and Ananda.
Out of petty dreams
This little being of Time, this shadow soul,
This living dwarf-figurehead of darkened spirit
Out of its traffic in petty dreams shall rise.
It is then that we shall be truly free, free from ignorance and limitations, free from littleness and the shadows that chase us.
Shudder with ecstasy
Its shape of person and its ego-face
Divested of this mortal travesty,
Like a clay troll kneaded into a god
New-made in the image of the eternal Guest,
It shall be caught to the breast of a white Force
And, flaming with the paradisal touch
In a rose-fire of sweet spiritual grace,
In the red passion of its infinite change,
Quiver, awake, and shudder with ecstasy.
The ego-self and the little frontal personality is a mask that hides behind itself a diviner state that is in the making. Behind these troubled appearances, a diviner image is being prepared for us. We are a god-in-the-making. Our greater destiny awaits this transformation that will fill us with the sweetness and ecstasy of the Divine Presence and the flaming powers that are now asleep in the higher spiritual realms bringing a rare ease and mastery of the Spirit upon life.
Reversing a deformation spell
As if reversing a deformation’s spell,
Released from the black magic of the Night,
Renouncing servitude to the dim Abyss,
It shall learn at last who lived within unseen,
And seized with marvel in the adoring heart
To the enthroned Child-Godhead kneel aware,
Trembling with beauty and delight and love.
The unhappiness, sorrow, suffering and evil we experience now is because of a distorting and deforming action of the Inconscient and its dark powers. But slowly we shall emerge out of this dark spell victoriously and awaken to the joy of adoration and of divine service and our nature fulfilled tremble at the marvellous touch of the Divine Beloved who hides within us unseen by our surface consciousness.
This is not just a prophesy but an promise of the Lord that gives us the certitude of a luminous Future despite the present seemingly dismal circumstances.
