I gravitate to the most holy alone...
I feel lured by the supra-heights
Such is the life of Gods... of God-like men..
A liberation from all earthly bonds,
I take no pleasure in the earthly desires..
A flight of the alone alone... to the alone..
..see I'm deliberately feeling my way
for I am power over faculties so flighty and free
at an altar of a power rising underneath..
You see all through the ages and tides..
I never had to say that I tried..
If there's a sin you know I'm gonna right it
If there's a wrong you know I'm gonna fight it
..whatever's wrong I'm gonna right..
"For humans, the "flight of the alone to the alone," as Plotinus called it, is marked by rational inquiry (since the forms are rational and known by the rational mind). but it is also marked by a mystical experience which transcends reason, as the soul goes into itself and returns to Unity with its source. This element of mysticism in Plotinus was a major source of inspiration for medieval Christian mystics and theologians. Recent scholars like Jules Brehier have speculated that Plotinus may have been influenced by direct acquaintance with Hindu mysticism. Whether he was or not, his mystical teachings are certainly similar to those of the Upanisads, and seem to reflect a similar mystical experience."
