Beethoven the Mighty (poem by Dorothy) 

Beethoven the Mighty

O, Beethoven,
with your madness
and your grief,
your raging tones
and blocked ears
that shut out
all but your fury and
your sorrow,
untamed notes
that defied it all,
even the gods,
the forces
that would drag you down,
nothing to love
but the fickle boy,
not even clean linen
or food,
just the pulsing
heartbeat of the universe
throbbing constantly
in your crazed brain.

Dorothy Walters

Like many creative geniuses, Beethoven (1770-1827) seemed possessed by a brain that was "on fire." His level of functioning in terms of his productivity was so far beyond the "normal" that to the ordinary person he might seem "crazed" or suffering from some rare form of madness. Certainly he was obsessed, and this was part of the price he had to pay for his massive gift. And "the boy" was his nephew, possibly the only love object in Beethoven's life until even he too rejected his eccentric uncle and left the composer to cope alone with his growing deafness and isolation.

Was his fervent outpouring the result of sublimated Kundalini? Many think there is in fact a connection between Kundalini and creativity.
