Thoreau speaks of living by the dictates of wisdom, a life of “…simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust.” The relationship between devotion and love. The analogy of the three Graces and 9 Muses as universal powers. Who is the 10th Muse? The power of Grace and how to access it.
The natural condition of the Heart (or Chitta) is to reflect the universe. The power of the heart lies in its openness and the Chandogya Upanished describes it movingly as the abode of the Self. The poetry of Kabir brings devotion and love into the realm of non-duality.
