Sacred Flute I by Svetoslav Roerich. 19461. "… Inspiration is inherent in all people. Ordinarily it is attributed only to scholars, poets, musicians, artists, but each one who is concerned about his own consciousness may receive this higher gift." [AUM, 451]


2. "Honest creators and workers can bear witness that the best solutions come from without. Like a powerful dynamo, the Fiery World emits a shower of the best formulas. One should not only make use of them but also testify about them in the highest terms. Thus one can be united by the fires of the heart with the Supreme Light. This is not conceit, for Light knows no obstacles." [Fiery World I, 604]


3. "... Problems can be solved by a higher degree of inspiration." [Supermundane, 141]


4. "Happiness is in inspired work." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1953, 293]


5. "...How carefully one must protect the great innate quality of inspiration. We have already mentioned it, but one should turn special attention to this link with the Supermundane World. The very word “inspiration” points to some kind of external guidance. Do not think that such a link can be created instantaneously; it requires many tests over many lives. … Man can be a creator in any field. High quality in any kind of labor is in itself an inspiration." [Supermundane, 789]


6. "Over and above man’s work stands the manifestation of woman. She leads, she inspires, she guides on all paths, and she displays an example of synthesis. It is astonishing how quickly she enters any domain. From Earth up to the far-off worlds she succeeds in weaving wings of Light." [Brotherhood, 282]


7. "Consonance is the first condition of creativity. All so-called inspirations are nothing but consonances in one area or another. A mathematician looking for the right formula; a poet writing poetry; an inventor working on a discovery – they all tune in tune with the sphere of space in which the solution of their problems is located. Art in ancient times was called the service of the Muses. Service is one of the keys to harmony." [Еxcerpts by Boris Abramov from the book "Aspiring Heart" 1951, 32]
