Example text

By Body of Fate is understood the physical and mental environment, the changing human body, the stream of Phenomena as this affects a particular individual, all that is forced upon us from without, Time as it affects sensation. The Will when represented in the diagram is always opposite the Mask, the Creative Mind always opposite the Body of Fate. The Will looks into a painted picture. The Creative Mind looks into a photograph, but both look into something which is the opposite of themselves. The picture is that which is chosen, while the photograph is heterogeneous.

My beggar maid had found it, she told me, on the top shelf in a wall cupboard where it had been left by the last tenant, an unfrocked priest who had joined a troup of gypsies and disappeared, and she had torn out the middle pages to light our fire.

ROBARTES Have you not always known it? _ AHERNE The song will have it That those that we have loved got their long fingers From death, and wounds, or on Sinai's top, Or from some bloody whip in their own hands. 20 They ran from cradle to cradle till at last Their beauty dropped out of the loneliness Of body and soul. ROBARTES The lover's heart knows that. AHERNE 5 It must be that the terror in their eyes Is memory or foreknowledge of the hour When all is fed with light and heaven is bare. ROBARTES When the moon's full those creatures of the full Are met on the waste hills by country men Who shudder, and hurry by : body and soul 10 Estranged amid the strangeness of themselves, Caught up in contemplation, the mind's eye Fixed upon images that once were thought, For separate, perfect, and immovable Images can break the solitude 15 Of lovely, satisfied, indifferent eyes.
