Bliss of Identity

                 All Nature is taught in radiant ways to move,
                       All beings are in myself embraced.
                  O fiery boundless Heart of joy and love,
                        How art thou beating in a mortal’s breast !

                  It is Thy rapture flaming through my nerves
                        And all my cells and atoms thrill with Thee ;
                  My body thy vessel is and only serves
                        As a living wine-cup of Thy ecstasy.

                  I am a centre of Thy golden light
                        And I its vast and vague circumference,
                  Thou art my soul great, luminous and white
                        And Thine my mind and will and glowing sense.

                  Thy spirit’s infinite breath I feel in me;
                  My life is a throb of Thy eternity.

 

– Sri Aurobindo
