I’m leading a discussion group about the spiritual essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Its the second time I’m doing this and it is enjoyable and enriching. We use “Emerson as a Spiritual Guide” by Barry Andrews, published by Skinner House Books, Unitarian Universalist Association publishing house. I highly recommend the book to anyone who wants to learn more about Emerson’s spiritual writings.
In reading Emerson’s essay, The Over-Soul, I found this time that I have much more clarity. One passage struck me as particularly important: “For the soul is true to itself, and the man in whom it is shed abroad cannot wander from the present, which is infinite, to a future which would be finite.”
This is related to an idea that Joesph Campbell expressed — “Eternity has nothing to do with time.”
Why am I suddenly writing about this? First of all I need to get back blogging!! Secondly these assertions are helpful to me as I seek to be in the present and mindful of it. I thought they might be helpful to you.
Maybe I need more power?
Looks like I’m off to a slow start with my new blog, not too many visitors so far. On this blog that you’re reading I have topics like Hawk Eating a Squirrel, and Lettuce Lichen; always attractive posts. I guess I need to review my camera equipment on my new photography blog — that’ll get attention — people always need help in deciding on new equipment. Meanwhile I just published a post today about a blog and an article that I found inspiring and how I plan to use my inspiration. Please go and read it if you’re interested. My posts that are largely about photography will be posted there — all attempts to solve the mysteries of life will continue to be posted here — so if you like my photos …. please take a look at my latest post in my photography blog.
