Illustration to Poems of Thomas Gray
The Universal Brotherhood of Eden is both a Perfect Unity and a multitude. It exits through offering self to others. It, though multitude, takes on the appearance of a Man in Jesus. Our existence depends on this Universal Brotherhood which gives itself in love for Man. The work of Ololon, Los and Jesus are examples of the descent of the Brotherhood to redeem man.
Milton, Plate 23 , (E 119) We were plac'd here by the Universal Brotherhood & Mercy With powers fitted to circumscribe this dark Satanic death And that the Seven Eyes of God may have space for Redemption. Four Zoas, Night I, Page 3, (E 300) "a Perfect Unity Cannot Exist. but from the Universal Brotherhood of Eden The Universal Man. To Whom be Glory Evermore Amen" Milton, Plate 35 , (E 135) "O how the Starry Eight rejoic'd to see Ololon descended! And now that a wide road was open to Eternity, By Ololons descent thro Beulah to Los & Enitharmon, For mighty were the multitudes of Ololon, vast the extent Of their great sway, reaching from Ulro to Eternity" Jerusalem, Plate 31 , (E 177) And the Divine voice came from the Furnaces, as multitudes without Number! the voices of the innumerable multitudes of Eternity. And the appearance of a Man was seen in the Furnaces; Saving those who have sinned from the punishment of the Law, (In pity of the punisher whose state is eternal death,) And keeping them from Sin by the mild counsels of his love. Four Zoas, Night VIII, Page 110 , (E 380) "He answerd her with tenderness & love not uninspird Los sat upon his anvil stock they sat beside the forge Los wipd the sweat from his red brow & thus began To the delusive female forms shining among his furnaces I am that shadowy Prophet who six thousand years ago Fell from my station in the Eternal bosom. I divided To multitude & my multitudes are children of Care & Labour O Rahab I behold thee I was once like thee a Son Of Pride and I also have piercd the Lamb of God in pride & wrath Hear me repeat my Generations that thou mayst also repent" Letters, To Thomas Butts, (E 712) "Each grain of Sand Every Stone on the Land Each rock & each hill Each fountain & rill Each herb & each tree Mountain hill Earth & Sea Cloud Meteor & Star Are Men Seen Afar" Four Zoas, Night I, Page 21, (E 310) "Then those in Great Eternity met in the Council of God As one Man for contracting their Exalted Senses They behold Multitude or Expanding they behold as one As One Man all the Universal family & that one Man They call Jesus the Christ & they in him & he in them Live in Perfect harmony in Eden the land of life Consulting as One Man above the Mountain of Snowdon Sublime" Jerusalem, Plate 96, (E 255) "Albion replyd. Cannot Man exist without Mysterious Offering of Self for Another, is this Friendship & Brotherhood I see thee in the likeness & similitude of Los my Friend Jesus said. Wouldest thou love one who never died For thee or ever die for one who had not died for thee And if God dieth not for Man & giveth not himself Eternally for Man Man could not exist. for Man is Love: As God is Love: every kindness to another is a little Death In the Divine Image nor can Man exist but by Brotherhood"Matthew 12
 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
