Read THE SELF AND SYMBOL of Cosmic Consciousness, free online book, by Ali Nomad, on

Thou most Divine! above all women
Above all men in consciousness.

Thou in thy nearness to me
Hast shown me paths of love.
Yea; walks that lead from hell
To the great light; where life and love
Do ever reign.

Thou hast taught to me a patience
To behold whatever state;
However beautiful and joyful; however ugly and sorrowful.

To know that these are-all!-but
The glimmerings of the greater life-
Expressions of the infinite.

According to the finality of that moment
Now to come; in the eternal now, which thou
Sweet Presence, hast awakened me to-
I see the light-the way.

An everlasting illumination
That takes me to the gate; the open door
To the house of God.
There I find most priceless jewels;
The key to all the ways,
That lead from Om to thee.

A mistake-an off-turn from the apparent road of right
Is but the bruising of thy temple,
Calling thy Self-thy soul-
The God within; showing thee,
The nita of it all; which is but the half of me.

And as thy consciousness of the two
The nita and the ita, comes to thee
A three is formed-the trinity is found.

Through thee the Deity hast spoken
Uniting the two in the one;

Revealing the illusion of mortality
The message of Om to the Illumined.
