Encore: Into Eternity

Show Summary Details

Preview

Jerusalem can be regarded synchronically (as well as sequentially). This book concludes with a foray into Eternity, discussing how time, key images, and important characters function in the states of Ulro, Generation, Beulah, and Eden — and how those different states of being interrelate. Blake seeks to move us (with his characters) from Ulro into Eden, where all things interconnect: spiritually, politically, ecologically. All living things can participate in Albion's great awakening, entering the Divine Body.

Keywords: Albion; awakening; Beulah; Divine Body; Eternity; Generation; interconnect; synchronic; time; Ulro
