"The Life Divine"57

(The Magnum Opus of Philosophy)

The only way to grow
Is to aim beyond our reach.
We are in a ceaseless flow
To seize the fount of peace.

Truly, no end there is
That is not a starting mark.
His blazing bliss
Transforms our nature dark.

Our oneness with Him we own
In faith; and challenge of Death
We meet: the Truth is revealed —
In us His eternal Breath.

A strange coincidence: with the start of the first World War, shaking human life and culture to their foundations with its unprecedented horrors, the world-saving message of The Life Divine found publication.
