“I believe that there is a genius inside each living being, each soul and that this prodigious consciousness moves us individually and collectively, constantly and patiently, from darkness to light in each moment of our life. Each of us goes through this process, in our own way, with our own unique circumstances and capacities.” — Yogi Akal
