Where is he today?


We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole, of which these are the shining parts, is the soul.  We in succession, in division, in parts, in particles.  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. —Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love Ralph.  Is there anyone writing now like Ralph did?  That man had a direct line to God, his wisdom was other worldly and he understood the essence of every man.  Pick him up and see if you don’t agree.  He tells you what you know inside about yourself.
