THE FIFTH TEXT 149 iscard the mirror, and yet cannot. And there- >re the craving seeks the limit of the beginning, nd passes out of the mirror. Thus the mirror i broken, and the breaking is a turba, as a dying f the formed or comprehended life. 8. And it is highly recognizable by us how tie imagination of the Eternal Nature has the irba in the craving, in the Mystery, but not wakenable, unless the creature, as the mirror of ternity, doth itself awaken this, viz. the fierce rrath, which in eternity is hidden in mystery. 9. And we see here, when the Eternal Nature tut itself in motion once for all by the creation of he world, that the fierce wrath was awakened too, ,nd also manifested itself in creatures. As indeed re find many evil beasts, likewise herbs and trees, ,s also worms, toads, serpents and the like,—of phieh the Eternal Nature hath a loathing, and the aalignity and poison is nourished only in its own ;ssence. 10. And therefore the Eternal Nature seeks the imit of the malignity, and would abandon it. Chen it falls into the turba, as into a dying; and ret there is no dying, but a spewing-out in the Mystery, where the malignity with its life must itand apart as in a darkness. For the Eternal sFature abandons it and casts it into shade, so that t stands thus by itself as an evil, poisonous, fierce nysterium, and is itself its own magic as a craving )f the poisonful anguish.
