“The Self, although hidden in all things, does not manifest its splendor”
We live under an enchantment, behind the veil of Maya, which hides the essential character of things, hypnotized by illusory ideas that generate desire, aversion or fear.
A white swan, wounded, oblivious of its splendor, dies and seems to scream: what is my name?
How can one make the poison of the worlds energies serve higher purposes? We can digest the poison or hold the nectar under our control.
The Serpent Goddess dances, the Kundalini: at first asleep, unconscious and dark, poisonous or poisoned; awakening she becomes harmless and her evil nature reveals itself as the most precious resource, when no effect remains of the poison, glory and power spread throughout the body and the being mute.
The old dies to give birth to the unborn. The veil of Maya is also power that reveals, removes ignorance, to remember that the spirit is in everything and being and never dies.
The swan shining in its whiteness receives the world and with immense joy says to itself: “I am that”
We are children of the Earth, our body is our sacred home. I dance with Mother Earth, her rivers and oceans, her forests and mountains. My empty body embrace the Universe, my spirit is love and compassion.
