However, this book is not about that historical fact, but the fact that this spy and the author of the text you are looking at right now have the same surname is surely a background that plays its game as the text evolves.

I always thought it was the expression of emotion that proves the passion we hold... more

These poems are a continuation of House of Mirrors, the polishing of the soul's spirit and dissolving further from self into Love and its Source; a striving to become in tune with the tongue of the Invisible, the Silent One; to become not just the harp and harp's song but the vibration and the fingers that pluck the heaven-strings; to become not just the flute but to shed everything of ego in order to be the e... more
