Illustration to Young's Night Thoughts
"Touch that heals the soul"
"His 'great task' was to explore and record the mysteries of the human psyche, 'To open the Eternal Worlds, to open the immortal Eyes of Man inwards into the Worlds of Thought' (J 5: 18); and thought animated by passion, is the substance of his verse. Not until man understands the workings of his mind can peace and liberty be accomplished. Thus Blake became one of the great psychologists, anticipating many of the discoveries of later scientists.
He was not interested in illustrating moral precepts but in the analysis and cure of evil, which are very different matters."
Damon continues with this quote:
Annotations to Boyd, (E 634) "the grandest Poetry is Immoral the Grandest characters Wicked. Very Satan. Capanius Othello a murderer. Prometheus. Jupiter. Jehovah, Jesus a wine bibber Cunning & Morality are not Poetry but Philosophy the Poet is Independent & Wicked the Philosopher is Dependent & Good Poetry is to excuse Vice & show its reason & necessary purgation"
 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
It is because man is created in the image of God his potential can never be discounted. The evidence of his failure and brokenness is not cause to despair. Blake believed that the imprint of God within man could be reached and renewed. Through the 'Poetic Inspiration' the 'Universe' could be rebuilt. The 'Universe' is the reunified Albion, the image of one man as including all that is, in a living body and mind as the revelation of God.
Milton, Plate 30 ,(E 129) "But to The Sons of Eden the moony habitations of Beulah, Are from Great Eternity a mild & pleasant Rest. And it is thus Created. Lo the Eternal Great Humanity To whom be Glory & Dominion Evermore Amen Walks among all his awful Family seen in every face As the breath of the Almighty. such are the words of man to man In the great Wars of Eternity, in fury of Poetic Inspiration, To build the Universe stupendous: Mental forms Creating" Milton, Plate 32 , (E 131) "And thus the Seven Angels instructed him & thus they converse. We are not Individuals but States: Combinations of Individuals We were Angels of the Divine Presence: & were Druids in Annandale Compelld to combine into Form by Satan, the Spectre of Albion, Who made himself a God &, destroyed the Human Form Divine. But the Divine Humanity & Mercy gave us a Human [Hebrew text] Form as multitudes Because we were combind in Freedom & holy Vox Populi Brotherhood While those combind by Satans Tyranny first in the blood of War And Sacrifice &, next, in Chains of imprisonment: are Shapeless Rocks Retaining only Satans Mathematic Holiness, Length: Bredth & Highth Calling the Human Imagination: which is the Divine Vision & Fruition In which Man liveth eternally: madness & blasphemy, against Its own Qualities, which are Servants of Humanity, not Gods or Lords[.] Distinguish therefore States from Individuals in those States. Jerusalem, Plate 38 , (E 184) "From howling victims of Law: building Heavens Twenty-seven-fold. Swelld & bloated General Forms, repugnant to the Divine- Humanity, who is the Only General and Universal Form To which all Lineaments tend & seek with love & sympathy All broad & general principles belong to benevolence Who protects minute particulars, every one in their own identity." Jerusalem, Plate 79, (E 236) "O Vala! Humanity is far above Sexual organization; & the Visions of the Night of Beulah Where Sexes wander in dreams of bliss among the Emanations Where the Masculine & Feminine are nurs'd into Youth & Maiden By the tears & smiles of Beulahs Daughters till the time of Sleep is past. Wherefore then do you realize these nets of beauty & delusion In open day to draw the souls of the Dead into the light. Till Albion is shut out from every Nation under Heaven."
Blake agreed with Paul in Corinthians that by beholding the glory of the Lord man is changed into the same image as the Lord by the Lord's Spirit.
2 Corinthians, Chapter 3
 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
