A Quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Essay IX – The Over-soul

“Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal ONE.  And this deep power in which we exist, and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one.  We see the world by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole of life, of which these are the shining parts, is the soul.”

This is but a part of Emerson’s essay.  If you get a chance read the entire essay which is quite lengthy.

What I strive for in my writing is to show the connection we have to each other.  Below is a photo I took last week which gives me inner peace through nature.
