Poems and Prose
Men of the earth, brothers in eternity,
Awake! Shake your souls.
The hour so long waited for,
The promise hour, has come.
Over the dark firmament of suffering humanity
is rising the morning star
heralding the day when you will understand
that mans most sacred duty is to be man.
That is, to manifest Life, Intelligence, Truth and Love.
There is no higher aim, no vaster problem.
And you who realize this will break the fetters
with which ignorance and fear have bound unconscious humanity.
Will stand up free and know yourselves to be
the eternal manifestation of the unmanifest witness
of the absolute sons of that great all
whom you call God.
