The Voice of one crying in the Wilderness

The Argument As the true method of knowledge is experiment
the true faculty of knowing must be the faculty which experiences.
This faculty I treat of.

PRINCIPLE 1st  That the Poetic Genius is the true Man. and that
the body or outward form of Man is derived from the Poetic Genius.
Likewise that the forms of all things are derived from their Genius.
which by the Ancients was call’d an Angel & Spirit & Demon.

PRINCIPLE 2d  As all men are alike in outward form, So (and with
the same infinite variety) all are alike in the Poetic Genius

PRINCIPLE 3d  No man can think write or speak from his heart, but
he must intend truth. Thus all sects of Philosophy are from the Poetic
Genius adapted to the weaknesses of every individual

PRINCIPLE 4.  As none by traveling over known lands can find out
the unknown.  So from already acquired knowledge Man could not ac-
quire more. therefore an universal Poetic Genius exists

PRINCIPLE. 5. The Religions of all Nations are derived from each
Nations different reception of the Poetic Genius which is every where
call’d the Spirit of Prophecy.

PRINCIPLE 6   The Jewish & Christian Testaments are An original
derivation from the Poetic Genius. this is necessary from the
confined nature of bodily sensation

PRINCIPLE 7th  As all men are alike (tho‘ infinitely various) So
all Religions & as all similars have one source
  The true Man is the source he being the Poetic Genius

from William Blake



Freedom is when you really get your own powers which are within you.

In your central nervous system and in your conscious mind, you must feel the existence of the spirit.

from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Music – Silence

According to me, music is not for entertainment. It was my life-long dream to play such kind of music which will make the listeners forget to clap, which will make them silent.

My dream came true once. I played one raga, while the listeners immersed deep into meditation and I experienced a state of thoughtlessness. This silence was so nourishing, so fulfilling – there was no need to play anything else.
