Four Zoas Manuscript
Four Zoas, Night I, PAGE 22 , (E 313) "The Daughters of Beulah beheld the Emanation they pitied They wept before the Inner gates of Enitharmons bosom And of her fine wrought brain & of her bowels within her loins Three gates within Glorious & bright open into Beulah From Enitharmons inward parts but the bright female terror Refusd to open the bright gates she closd and barrd them fast Lest Los should enter into Beulah thro her beautiful gates The Emanation stood before the Gates of Enitharmon Weeping. the Daughters of Beulah silent in the Porches Spread her a couch unknown to Enitharmon here reposd Jerusalem in slumbers soft lulld into silent rest Terrific ragd the Eternal Wheels of intellect terrific ragd The living creatures of the wheels in the Wars of Eternal life But perverse rolld the wheels of Urizen & Luvah back reversd Downwards & outwards consuming in the wars of Eternal Death"As the fall progressed Albion's emanation Jerusalem descended to Ulro with Albion. She finds herself barred from reentering Beulah as is Los. Enitharmon has substituted her vision of the world under female control for the Vision held by Jerusalem and Los. She blocks the gates of heart, and brain and loins forcing the avenue of return to be diverted through a long detour.
Jerusalem with her vision of the divine order is removed from the field of activity by causing her to sleep as Urizen and Luvah alter the direction in which the mechanism of creation moves. The intellect is induced to direct its efforts toward moving away from the eternal, invisible and toward the temporal, material.
