Russell, George William - Song and its Fountain
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience

I remember the deep peace which came to me when I had the intuition that Christ, Prometheus, are in every heart, that we all took upon ourselves the burden of the world like the Christ, and were foreseers as Prometheus was of the agony of the labour he undertook, until the chaos is subdued and wrought in some likeness to the image in the divine imagination
