The prospects that we humans can evolve
Into a wiser version of our kind
Are slim unless we can at last resolve
To cultivate a more enlightened mind,
Discovering how to raise our consciousness
To view what saints and sages of the past
Have realized can make a mind progress
By opening to a cosmic vision vast
And wondrous, able to transform both hearts
And heads, enlightening and inspiring souls,
Inculcating in us celestial arts
That bind our fragmentary parts in wholes.
Now is the time we humans must invoke
That Spirit with whom saints and sages spoke.
