The Guest (SAP 034)

This sonnet reveals to us the truth of the secret immortal soul in man.

THE GUEST
I have discovered my deep deathless being:
    Masked by my front of mind, immense, serene
It meets the world with an Immortal’s seeing,
    A god-spectator of the human scene.

No pain and sorrow of the heart and flesh
    Can tread that pure and voiceless sanctuary.
Danger and fear, Fate’s hounds, slipping their leash
    Rend body and nerve,—the timeless Spirit is free.

Awake, God’s ray and witness in my breast,
    In the undying substance of my soul
Flamelike, inscrutable the almighty Guest.
    Death nearer comes and Destiny takes her toll;

He hears the blows that shatter Nature’s house:
Calm sits he, formidable, luminous.

It is not the personality, the character that is of the first importance in rebirth — it is the psychic being who stands behind the evolution of the nature and evolves with it.
