Blake's Divine Economy

I must Create a System, or be enslav'd by another Man's;
I will not Reason and Compare: my business is to Create.

Each Man is in his Spectre's power
Until the arrival of that hour,
When his Humanity awake,
And cast his Spectre into the Lake.

I give you the end of a golden string;
Only wind it into a ball,
It will lead you in at Heaven's gate,
Built in Jerusalem's wall.

I care not whether a man is Good or Evil; all that I care
Is whether he is a Wise man or a Fool. Go! put off Holiness,
And put on Intellect;

heaps of depth...just a thought that if Blake's divine economy is important to you perhaps thefourzoas.com offers an account worthy of your focus

Thanks, David. I took a peak at your material and found it most impressive.

I, also have a volume on Blake focusing on his religion faith. You'll find that at Lamb Horn'd with Gold.
