Auguries of Innocence

Auguries of Innocence by William Blake

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour .....

Ah, the famous clip from William Blake's poem.
It was my signature on another Forum. It is up on a wall here.,
along with Hafiz and Kabir and Jesus's words.

Now did you want to discuss it? Or just leave it as a statement?
I wasn't sure what you wanted. But thank you ...
Do you know some younger people have never seen this?!
So this is a service.
Then, of course, you have millions that haven't a clue what he meant .

Where were you all when you first read it? I remember. :)
That's the impact it has when it hits home.
The 1800's were quite a time for cosmic or metaphysical revelations, imo.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

I remember first hearing the first four lines on a science show on TV a long time ago.
