543. Transcendence

Are the Self-form
Of the same transcendental Reality.

When I endeavour to fathom
My self-transcendence
With my human comatose eyes,
I see the radical transformation
Of the devouring tiger in me
Into the fast-running, sure-winning deer.

And when I plead with the Supreme
To elucidate the signification
Of transcendence, He just smiles
And declares:
“Yours is the transcendence-task
To touch the feet of My creation
For its fire-pure transformation.
Yours is the transcendence-goal
Where the comity of souls have discovered
Their only haven.”
