536. Exaltation


The other night I was exalted

When I dined with God the Supreme.

The other day I was exalted

When I breathed the excruciating pangs

Of earth-penuries.

From this life of mine

Only two more exalted experiences I need,

I most desperately need.

I need the experience unprecedented

Of seeing two human shoulders

Carrying the burdens of hell-fire,

Earth-water and Heaven-wine.

I need the experience

Of seeing Heaven-Beauty’s glorious Transcendence

Fulfilling earth-beauty’s splendour-light.

My journey’s start was the exaltation

Of God-man in me,

And my journey’s close will be the exaltation

Of man-God in the Absolute Supreme. ```
