Order and Chaos

The immortal’s thoughts displaced our bounded view, …
All things now bore a deeper heavenlier sense;
A clear harmony marked their truth’s outline,
Reset the balance and measures of the world.
Each shape showed its occult design, unveiled
God’s meaning in it for which it was made
And the vivid splendor of his artist thought.

– Sri Aurobindo, Savitri Book VII, Canto V

There is order in chaos,

After all

The nightmares end,

Before the dawn

The angels smile,

Before the fall

All demons are defeated

Before they rise,

You lose your mind,

Before you’re born,

You cannot understand,

Before you live

You are peaceful,

Before you die,

For the final time,


Open your eyes,

Leave them open,


Grasp the final ray of light,

Before the darkness,

See my face,

Scream my name,

I will show you the way…
