Abstract: 'On earth, painters, sculptors, musicians, dream dreams of exquisite beauty, creating their visions by the powers of the mind, but when they seek to embody them in the coarse materials of earth they fall short of the mental creation. The marble is too resistant for perfect form, the pigments too muddy for perfect color. In heaven all they think is at once reproduced in form, for the rare and subtle matter of the heaven- world is mind staff, the medium in which the mind normally works when free from passion and it takes shape with every mental impulse. Each man, therefore, in a very real sense, makes his own heaven, and the beauty of his surroundings is indefinitely increased, according to the wealth and energy of his mind' (Besant) (Ringbom, 1986).
