Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Thou this boy and thou this maiden
Thou this man and thou this woman
Thou art this old man who supports himself on a staff
Thou the God who appears in forms infinite
Thou the blue bird and thou the green bird
Thou the cloud that conceals the lightning
and thou the seasons and the oceans.
Beyond beginning, thou art in thy infinity, and all the worlds had their beginning in thee
There is nature, never born, who with her three elements – air, fire and water – creates all things in nature.
There is the born soul of man bound by the pleasures of nature
And there is the Spirit of man, never born, who has left pleasures behind in the joy of the Beyond
