Shri Mataji on William Blake
“So, whatever is really beautiful gives you vibrations and that’s how you know that these are the things that are eternal. Like some composers like Mozart, who was a Realized Soul, but so many poets are Realized Souls. The most of all was William Blake. William Blake has described everything about Sahaja Yoga, everything into details, even My house, our ashram, every detail, the house where it will be, everything he had described into details, such a seer he was in England. But English people think he was mad. Really, they think he was mad, really crazy fellow. Just imagine their understanding about Blake is so poor, but now of course it’s changing and things are happening that maybe one day as he desired, England has to be Jerusalem, and that’s what it has to work out.” Shri Mataji – Perth Australia, 1st March 1983
