The power that breaks the grip of oppression...the Alchemy of SELF...

Man in freedom so born is he
Yet shackled he sets himself to be
Oppression dark upon heart yet be lain
The echoes of emotion still held profane
The mind to silence daunting echoes of time past
And free the self from binding chains cast
Memory called to free mind, heart and soul
Alchemy to ring its welcomed toll.

"Everyone should consider his body as a priceless gift from one whom he loves above all,  a marvelous work of art, of indescribable beauty, and mystery beyond human conception, and so delicate that a word, a breath, a look, nay, a thought may injure it.”  Nikola Tesla (Source: “The Problem of Increasing Human Energy," The Century Magazine, June, 1900.)
