Page 151 - Through every nerve, through every vein, 1 feel the electric thrill, the touch Of life, that seems almost too much. I hear the wind among the trees Playing celestial symphonies ; I see the branches downward bent, Like keys of some great instrument. And over me unrolls...
Page 84 - This is the Secret whose Doors stand wide, Where Morning and Eve stand side by side. " And I, who speak from the Silence of Death, With the Voice newborn of the newborn Breath, " Inspire you here with the truth divine, Which asks no proof and needs no sign, " Whereby you KNOW that life is not gone When it passes from us. It but passes on. " In this, as in all worlds, nothing is lost : Least of all is That lost which we prize the most. " Uplift your heart ; and look o'er head ! For those you have...
Page i - Not only those Who hold clear echoes of the voice divine Are honourable — they are blest, indeed, Whate'er the world has held — but those who hear Some fair faint echoes, though the crowd be deaf, And see the white gods...
Page 32 - Another world, where Love shall be all, And Love will answer when Love doth call : — Where the Soul and the Thought make the Form and the Face, And no Hope is too great to find Hour of Grace : — And all in our lives which is best and most bright, Shall claim us, and be us, and rise into sight, And burst into blossom in God's great Light...
Page 17 - The members of the Archetypal Man Give them their measures. By this secret Plan Did the great architects Earth's Temples rear.

High in the unimaginable gloom O'er which is thrown the bridge thy Wisdom frames, In that Ellipse which holds the Ten great Names On Pillars through whose symbollisms loom Angels and demons, — worlds of Hope and Doom, — The glory of the dread Sephiroth flames.
Page 14 - Who handed on, from han:l to hand, the Keys. They pass before us, — Elders, Rabbis, Seers, — Whilst farther still in the dim past appears A vision of Celestial Hierarchies. Were these thy great transmitters ? Where are they Who be their followers ? Are they to this hour A .secret Band ? Can'st thou the student dower...
Page 40 - The painful search that man hath made For Path that may this Path evade Is its own bitter irony ! He treads it still who thinks to shun : And call it what he may, each one Will tread the Path, escaped by none, Which leads through Life's Gethsemane.
Page 82 - When our paths in life ran side by side. " If I ever helped you then, my dear, I can help you now, if you do not fear : — Ay — more than you dream in your present sphere. " If you do not fear — and will only Will That we be Friends...
Page 81 - Or maybe the Faith which has slowly grown In the Battle of Life to be my own Was taken and used by the Voice of Love In a way it scarce was conscious of. But how it came, and whensoe'er, I know that the Message came from Her, And that Love was the secret messenger.
