This is probably the most creative thing you have written.

Great idea for using the Law of Correspondences.

For her principles descended from heaven, and God observed her service to her fellow man.

Reward her even as she rewarded others, and double unto her double according to her works, in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

How much have her works glorified her and she enjoyed, and how much strugglings in service has she endured: for she saith in her heart, I sit a Sister and my partner sits beside me and I see not the sorrow in my choices.

Therefore shall her service return to her in one day, Redemption. Mankind mourns for she has fled and her service no longer available. She has been tested for strong is her Initiate who has proved her.

And the Brothers of the dry ground, who have served and enjoyed life, outside of Zion where they work their service, shall worry for mankind for they shall no longer be with them.

Serving in distant lands, they shall sense the moment of redemption, and rejoice at the thought of Nirvana.

And the service they provide will no longer be found amoung men.

The beauty of that City Zion with her streets of gold, and the foundations of precious stones, and the pearl gates, and fine linen of the saints, and the royal purple, and red of life, and all manner of beautiful and enjoyable things.

And the fruits that your soul desired are departed from the world, and all things which were satisfying not to be anymore found.

And mankind which was made spiritually and temporally rich by her will stand afar off and weep as they see beloved Zion leave.

Crying in gratitude will they say "Alas, alas, that great city whose saints were arrayed in fine linen, and the purple of the royal character, and the red of life, and her streets paved with glassy gold and her foundations of precious stones and her pearly gates.

For in one hour the riches of her people departed, and every watery (Astral-centered) Israelite saw the completion of their service.

And stood somberly on the decks of their ships and promised themselves that they would participate in a future Zion when their time came.

And they reflected on the wisdom of Zion and how it transformed the religions of the world, enriching them with Truth, saying "Now she has left us".

Rejoice with her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets for your karma follows you.

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, it being a symbol of Mount Zion, and threw it into the waters. Thus Zion proceeded onto the Astral plane, and there she dwelled with her relatively perfect people, and her place was found no longer on the physical plane.

And the music of enjoyment and peace was not heard, and no technology nor magicks were found, and nothing remained. She had truly fled the world as had the Zion of Enoch, Salem.

And no more enlightened teachers walked with mankind, and neither were the logoic partnerships seen walking amoung men. They were considered great by all for the excellence of their technologies, spirituality and building.

And all the saints and prophets, their being and lives and the things they had suffered, were within her.
