2016 . Arthur Edward Waite
Excerpt from The Collected Poems of Arthur Edward Waite, Vol. 1 of 2 Many records of Eucbaristic grace and vision bear witness to tbc true inwardness of tbe experience mentioned at tbc close of tbis poem. W bat tbe Vision is and wby it connects witb rest are questions wbicb are tberefore answered simply. It is tbc awaking of our consciousness to an Eternal Presence witbin itself. Tbc rest is of tbat kind wbicb is at tbe source of activity, namely, tbc rest of tbe centre. A certain recognition of tbe state, wbicb is like a land tbat is very far away, may be attained by removing from tbc mind tbe conception of location or environment, and of time, by presenting to ourselves, as ourselves, tbc simple notion of activity functioning by an inberent necessity. T be vebicle of tbis sacramental experience is an intense ligbt, beat and rapture. T be sense of ex tension may be lost in a very curious manner by tbose wbo are suﬂiciently self-instructed to make tbe picture inward and not objective to tbe mind's eye, as tbe mind will invariably do witb a fatal facility unless tbere is a strong compulsion of tbe will drawing in tbe concept to tbe centre.
