Dawn - Ascent to the Truth - Bird of Fire

For Callie and his family
At the end the soul turns to the eternal things
And in all the sanctuaries the pressure of God beseeches.
Then is played the crowning mystery
Then accomplished the miracle so much desired.
The Absolute, the Perfect, the Alone
Has called out of the Silence his mute Force
Where she lay in the featureless and formless hush
Guarding from Time by her immobile sleep
The ineffable puissance of his solitude.
The Absolute, the Perfect, the Alone
Has entered with his silence into space:
He has fashioned these countless persons of one self;
He has built a million figures of his power;
He lives in all, who lived in his Vast alone;
Space is himself and Time is only he.
The Absolute, the Perfect, the Immune,
One who is in us as our secret self,
Our mask of imperfection has assumed,
He has made this tenement of flesh his own,
His image in the human measure cast
That to his divine measure we might rise;
Then in a figure of divinity
The Maker shall recast us and impose
A plan of godhead on the mortal's mould
Lifting our finite minds to his infinite,
Touching the moment with eternity.
This transfiguration is earth's due to heaven:
A mutual debt binds man to the Supreme:
His nature we must put on as he put ours;
We are sons of God and must be even as he:
His human portion, we must grow divine.
Our life is a paradox with God for key.
Sri Aurobindo (Savitri)

Beautiful gesture and picture. Thanks for posting. After a sunset always comes a dawn. Great post Luc.

I add myself to this beautiful epitaph. Thanks Luc.

What a wonderful tribute! Stunning work and I think you echo most of our thoughts to Callie with this.

Thank you very much for posting this!

Hi Luc
I missed this one completely - It was just after my Dad passed away. Thank you so much for the words and the picture - the promise of something bright even if there was a dark background. Thanks, my Friend
