|Four Zoas, Night VIII|
Blake was making the distinction between death as it is experienced in the natural world and death as a spiritual experience of entry into Eternal Life. The Circle of Destiny is a term Blake used for the cyclical process through which the natural world renews itself through a repetition of birth, life and death. Enion who had introduced such a process became aware of its futility. She saw that the culmination of humanity's journey through life was not to begin again the same dull round but to be transformed to an eternal dimension beyond the confines of natural life.

"Thus cries Ahania Enion replies from the Caverns of the Grave Fear not O poor forsaken one O land of briars & thorns Where once the Olive flourishd & the Cedar spread his wings Once I waild desolate like thee my fallow fields in fear Cried to the Churchyards & the Earthworm came in dismal state I found him in my bosom & I said the time of Love Appears upon the rocks & hills in silent shades but soon A voice came in the night a midnight cry upon the mountains Awake the bridegroom cometh I awoke to sleep no more But an Eternal Consummation is dark Enion The watry Grave. O thou Corn field O thou Vegetater happy More happy is the dark consumer hope drowns all my torment For I am now surrounded by a shadowy vortex drawing The Spectre quite away from Enion that I die a death Of bitter hope altho I consume in these raging waters The furrowd field replies to the grave I hear her reply to me Behold the time approaches fast that thou shalt be as a thing Forgotten when one speaks of thee he will not be believd When the man gently fades away in his immortality When the mortal disappears in improved knowledge cast away The former things so shall the Mortal gently fade away And so become invisible to those who still remain Listen I will tell thee what is done in the caverns of the grave PAGE 114  The Lamb of God has rent the Veil of Mystery soon to return In Clouds & Fires around the rock & the Mysterious tree As the seed waits Eagerly watching for its flower & fruit Anxious its little soul looks out into the clear expanse To see if hungry winds are abroad with their invisible army So Man looks out in tree & herb & fish & bird & beast Collecting up the scatterd portions of his immortal body Into the Elemental forms of every thing that grows He tries the sullen north wind riding on its angry furrows The sultry south when the sun rises & the angry east When the sun sets when the clods harden & the cattle stand Drooping & the birds hide in their silent nests. he stores his thoughts As in a store house in his memory he regulates the forms Of all beneath & all above & in the gentle West Reposes where the Suns heat dwells he rises to the Sun And to the Planets of the Night & to the stars that gild The Zodiac & the stars that sullen stand to north & south He touches the remotest pole & in the Center weeps That Man should Labour & sorrow & learn & forget & return To the dark valley whence he came to begin his labours anew In pain he sighs in pain he labours in his universe Screaming in birds over the deep & howling in the Wolf Over the slain & moaning in the cattle & in the winds And weeping over Orc & Urizen in clouds & flaming fires And in the cries of birth & in the groans of death his voice Is heard throughout the Universe whereever a grass grows Or a leaf buds The Eternal Man is seen is heard is felt And all his Sorrows till he reassumes his ancient bliss Such are the words of Ahania & Enion. Los hears & weeps"In Blake's Four Zoas: The Design of a Dream, Brian Wilkie and Mary Lynn Johnson emphasize that Enion is not referring to seasonal renewal in her fourth lament:
"Something starts things budding every spring, whether there is any point or not: something deathless stirs in mankind despite the grave, and that stirring promises human resurrection. But nature provides only an analogy, not a proof or a dynamic. The active force in renewal, according to both Shelley's and Blake's vision, is the human will acting on love whose ultimate source is imagination. The seeds of new life in the human world are small acts of goodness struggling, as in Enion's song, to grow; they flourish in spite of natural cycles, not because of them, and in defiance of the limits seemingly imposed by physical death.
Yet repeated failures like those described here are an indirect reminder that opportunities for regeneration are repeated, in fact are omnipresent. The blindness of instinct may be exactly what allows man to start over after failing again and again...Much of his laborious renewal comes through his identifying himself with the pain as well as the joy of the universe." (Page 203)
Wilkie and Johnson find that in the 15TH chapter of 1ST Corinthians Paul affirms the same insight: that our hope is the resurrection, new birth to a new life in Christ not a reappearance of the old man who died in the crucifixion.
First Corinthians 15 (RSV)
Now if Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised;
 if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.
 We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified of God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised.
 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised.
 If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.
 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
 If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all men most to be pitied.
 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
