Kundalini, The Mother of the Universe by Rishi Singh Gherwal
THE HIDDEN SPRING
The universe is very beautiful, yet it says nothing. The four seasons abide by a fixed law, yet they are not heard. All creation is based upon absolute principles, yet nothing speaks.
THE SLAVE OF THE LAMP
He who has followed even in secrecy many lights of the spirit can see one by one the answering torches gleam. When I was made certain about this I accepted what befell with resignation.
George William Russell
