All successful poets have tracked the path of transcending. They start from what the eyes see, or the hands feel, or the ears hear, and they travel into space and time and direct their focus onto the beyond….
All poets in all lands, through all the corridors of time have been inspired, and inspired in such a way that their consciousness flowed, and this came out as poetry. Someone saw the dawn and his heart flowed, welcoming the sun. And he saw the setting sun, and his heart flowed, and he gave farewell to the sun. The rise of the moon, and his heart flowed, his consciousness flowed. The golden aura around the moon—ah, beautiful! His heart flowed, and he gave a picture of it in words. It is the flow of life.
– Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, La Antilla, Spain December 22, 1972 cited in The Flow of Consciousness: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on Literature and Language.
