A quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on “Oneness”

Hundreds of visitors flock to the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park to watch the sunrise

We live 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

    1. Thank you dear Kamal! So true, when all humanity understands this, there will be no more wars, no more hurting, no more greed in our world, as we are all One Human family, and we have our own being essence in the ONE Source of all Life and all that is.<3

    One of my favorite symbols is the yin/yang of the East. Along with all the typical meanings it reminds us that nothing exists in isolation. We all carry a part of the “other” wherever we go. Great Emerson quote. Whitman was big on this as well.


    1. Oh, I agree with you! The ying and yang symbol explains so much without words… the nature of duality, and yet is all oneness, and as you said so beautifully “We all carry a part of the “other” wherever we go.” I will take a look at Emerson and Whitman quotes, thank you for your suggestion!!! ❤ Sending light and love your way, Amira
