The final image known as Christ Blessing symbolizes the reunification and reorientation of the psyche of man. The regenerated man will live in God, the one body in which all things 'live and move and have their being'. Conversely God will dwell in every breast, his thoughts will fill every mind, every body will express his will, and every imagination will be filled with the Divine Vision.

Regenerate She & all the lovely Sex From her shall learn obedience & prepare for a wintry grave That spring may see them rise in tenfold joy & sweet delight Thus shall the male & female live the life of Eternity Because the Lamb of God Creates himself a bride & wife That we his Children evermore may live in Jerusalem Which now descendeth out of heaven a City yet a Woman Mother of myriads redeemd & born in her spiritual palaces By a New Spiritual birth Regenerated from Death" Four Zoas, Night IX, Page 138, (E 406) "The Sun has left his blackness & has found a fresher morning And the mild moon rejoices in the clear & cloudless night And Man walks forth from midst of the fires the evil is all consumd His eyes behold the Angelic spheres arising night & day The stars consumd like a lamp blown out & in their stead behold The Expanding Eyes of Man behold the depths of wondrous worlds One Earth one sea beneath nor Erring Globes wander but Stars Of fire rise up nightly from the Ocean & one Sun Each morning like a New born Man issues with songs & Joy Calling the Plowman to his Labour & the Shepherd to his rest He walks upon the Eternal Mountains raising his heavenly voice Conversing with the Animal forms of wisdom night & day That risen from the Sea of fire renewd walk oer the Earth"Acts 17
 The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man,
 nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything.
 And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation,
 that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us,
 for `In him we live and move and have our being';
as even some of your poets have said, `For we are indeed his offspring.
