CHAPTER XI - Lords of the Day and Night

`The great Snake coils and uncoils the plasm of his folds, and stars appear, and worlds fade out. It is no more than the changing and easing of the plasm.
`I always am, says his sleep.
`As a man in a deep sleep knows not, but is, so is the Snake of the coiled cosmos, wearing its plasm.
`As a man in a deep sleep has no to-morrow, no yesterday, nor to-day, but only is, so is the limpid, far-reaching Snake of the eternal Cosmos, Now, and forever Now.
`Now, and only Now, and forever Now.
`But dreams arise and fade in the sleep of the Snake. `And worlds arise as dreams, and are gone as dreams. `And man is a dream in the sleep of the Snake. `And only the sleep that is dreamless breathes I Am! `In the dreamless Now, I Am.
`Dreams arise as they must arise, and man is a dream arisen.
`But the dreamless plasm of the Snake is the plasm of a man, of his body, his soul, and his spirit at one.
`And the perfect sleep of the Snake I Am is the plasm of a man, who is whole.
'When the plasm of the body, and the plasm of the soul, and the plasm of the spirit are at one, in the Snake I Am. `I am Now.
'Was-not is a dream, and shall-be is a dream, like two separate, heavy feet.
`But Now, I Am.
`The trees put forth their leaves in their sleep, and flowering emerge out of dreams, into pure I Am.
`The birds forget the stress of their dreams, and sing aloud in the Now, I Am! I Am!
`For dreams have wings and feet, and journeys to take, and efforts to make.
`But the glimmering Snake of the Now is wingless and footless, and undivided, and perfectly coiled.
`It is thus the cat lies down, in the coil of Now, and the cow curves round her nose to her belly, lying down.
`In the feet of a dream the hare runs uphill. But when he pauses, the dream has passed, he has entered the timeless Now, and his eyes are the wide I Am.
