“We Love what Common hearts repel”

"The truth mind could not know unveils its face,
We hear what mortal ears have never heard,
We feel what earthly sense has never felt,
We love what common hearts repel and dread;
Our minds hush to a bright Omniscient;
A Voice calls from the chambers of the soul;
We meet the ecstasy of the Godhead’s touch
In golden privacies of immortal fire."

Excerpt from "Savitri" by Sri Aurobindo, Book I, Canto Four, lines 78-85)
