Another William Blake Morning

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.

He who bends to himself a Joy/Doth the winged life destroy; /But he who kisses the Joy as it flies /Lives in Eternity’s sunrise.

I must Create a System, or be enslaved by another Man’s; /I will not Reason and Compare; my business is to Create.

Love seeketh not itself to please, /Nor for itself have any care, /But for another gives its ease, /And builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair.

Without contraries is no progression.

Energy is eternal delight!

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

Man’s Desires are limited by his Perceptions; none can desire what he has not perceived.

Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the Night.

I am in you and you in me, mutual in divine love.

Do what you will, this world’s a fiction and is made up of contradictions.

Exuberance is energy.

Imagination is the real and eternal world of which this vegetable universe is but a faint shadow.

Art can never exist without naked beauty displayed.

The imagination is not a state; it is the human existence itself.

Enlightenment means taking full responsibility for your life.

How can a bird that is born for joy/Sit in a cage and sing?

The eye altering, alters all.

We become what we behold.

A robin redbreast in a cage/Puts all of heaven in a rage.

The nakedness of woman is a work of God.

Each man is haunted until his humanity awakens.

I know that this world is a world of Imagination and Vision.
