Art thou in the stage of, life “, or “death”, ‘death-in-life’?
Invoke the aid of three witnesses to verify thy ‘Station’.
The first witness is thine own consciousness-
See thyself, then, with thine own light.
The second witness is the consciousness of another ego-
See thyself, then, with the light of an ego other than thee.
The third witness is God’s consciousness-
See thyself, then, with God’s light.
If thou standest unshaken in front of this light,
Consider thyself as living and eternal as He!
That man alone is real who dares-
Dares to see God face to face!
What is ‘ascension’? Only a search for a witness
Who may finally confirm thy reality-?
A witness whose confirmation alone makes thee eternal.
No one can stand unshaken in His Presence;
And he who can, verily, he is pure gold.
Art thou a mere particle of dust?
Tighten the knot of thy ego;
And hold fast to thy tiny being!
How glorious to burnish one’s ego
And to test its lustre in the presence of the Sun t
Re-chisel, then, thine ancient frame;
And build up a new being.
Such being is real being
Or else thy ego is a mere ring of smoke!
