Our Souls - Unquenchable Light

Then grew in the great space before me, flame after flame, from the veil of the night.

Uncounted millions leaped they before me, some flaming forth as flowers of fire.

Others there were that shed a dim radiance, flowing but faintly from out of the night.

Some there were that faded swiftly; others that grew from a small spark of light.

Each surrounded by its dim veil of darkness, yet flaming with light that could never be quenched.

Coming and going like fireflies in springtime, filled they with space with Light and with Life.

Then spoke a voice, mighty and solemn, saying:

"These are lights that are souls among men, growing and fading, existing forever, changing yet living, through death into life.

When they have bloomed into flower, reached the zenith of growth in their life, swiftly then send I my veil of darkness, shrouding and changing to new forms of life.

Steadily upward throughout the ages, growing, expanding into yet another flame, lighting the darkness with yet greater power, quenched yet unquenched by the veil of the night.

So grows the soul of man ever upward, quenched yet unquenched by the darkness of night.

I, Death, come, and yet I remain not, for life eternal exists in the ALL; only an obstacle, I in the pathway, quick to be conquered by the infinite light.

Awaken, O flame that burns ever inward, flame forth and conquer the veil of the night."
