Emerson Readings - related discussions

Nature Essay:
radical in what it is proposing!
"So shall we come to look at the world with new eyes. It shall answer the endless inquiry of the intellect, -- What is truth? and of the affections, -- What is good? by yielding itself passive to the educated Will. Then shall come to pass what my poet said; "Nature is not fixed but fluid. Spirit alters, moulds, makes it. The immobility or bruteness of nature, is the absence of spirit; to pure spirit, it is fluid, it is volatile, it is obedient. Every spirit builds itself a house; and beyond its house a world; and beyond its world, a heaven."

Emerson reading synthesized:

The world you occupy is the world you make.
The more seriously you take this, the more beautiful your world becomes.

Do thoughts create our reality? Consciousness is part of the fabric of everything.

How does our spiritual path affect the water in our bodies?

How pliable is our our world? To what extent do we create/alter our own reality?

Lao Tzu:
"He who knows how to live can move
Without fear of tiger or rhinoceros.
In battle no weapon will touch him.
In him the rhinoceros can find
Nowhere to drive its horn,
The tiger finds nowhere to put its claws,
Weapons find nowhere to thrust their blades.
Why is this so?
Because he has passed beyond the region of death."
