Contemplation of the one and lost in ecstasy

‘I died a mineral and became a plant,

I died a plant and rose an animal,

I died an animal and I was man.

Why would I fear? When was I less by dying?

Yet once more I shall die as man, to soar

With the blessed angels; but even from angelhood

I must pass on. All except God perishes.

When I have sacrificed my angel soul,

I shall become that which no mind ever conceived.

O, let me not exist! for Non-existence proclaims,

“To him we shall return.”‘
