Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Ralph Waldo Emerson - Enlightened American:

Comments

KH

Robert:
I loved this. What a wise posting. Thanks again for all you do.
KH

Robert

Hi KH - Glad you liked it. Always thought Emerson was one of the best, a true American original!

Don

I have "Emerson on Education, Selections" on loan from the Library:
"The Supreme Critic on the errors of the past and the present, and the only prophet of that which must be, is that great nature in which we rest as the earth lies in the soft arms of the atmosphere; that Unity, that Over-Soul, within which every man's particular being is contained and made one with all other; that commom heart of which all sincere conversation is the worship, to which all right action is submission"...."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. Only by the vision of that Wisdom can the horoscope of the ages be read, and by falling back on our better thoughts, by yeilding to the spirit of prophecy which is innate in every man, we can know what it saith."~Emmerson

Robert, thank you for (what I perceive as) your A-papers snippets of "the vision of that Wisdom"

The article today is beautiful, complete, and so the book goes back to the library.

Robert

Thanks for the great Emerson quote, Don. He was a man of immense wisdom and sensitivity. Would that we had even one like him with the reins of power, as the world would be a so much better place, and all of us better off for it.

Teresa

Ralph Waldo Emerson was not only one of the greatest essayist of American history and the “Sage of Concord” . He was also a poet and has an entire collection of poetry. This is one of his poems dealing with transcendentalist movement written during the same era. He is my favorite poet and I felt you all may enjoy this……..

Brahma

If the red slayer think he slays,
Or if the slain think he is slain,
They know not well the subtle ways
I keep, and pass, and turn again.

Far or forgot to me is near,
Shadow and sunlight are the same,
The vanished gods to me appear,
And one to me are shame and fame.

They reckon ill who leave me out;
When me they fly, I am the wings;
I am the doubter and the doubt,
And I the hymn the Brahmin sings.

The strong gods pine for my abode,
And pine in vain the sacred Seven;
But thou, meek lover of the good!
Find me, and turn thy back on heaven.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
1856 [1857]

Robert

One of the criticisms of his poetry is that he was hung up on rhyming. I think he's a genius, and a true American master. This poem is magnificent. I also think he had a bit of the imp in him, a la John Lennon, using rhymes within lines to convey textural imagery. ("Please, pleas me" was the original Lennon lyric.)

Don

What was it about John Lennon and Emmerson that still effect so many? I was born in 79' just before Lennon died. When I first watched 'Imagine, John Lennon' I cried at the end and said to my parents "why did John have to die?"
Anyone, when John sang 'God'..."God is a concept by which we measure our pain...I don't believe in Iching-Jesus-Buddha-Beatles-etc, I just believe in me, Yoko and Me." Was this song after 'Imagine' or 'Instant Karma'? I have always wondered of his introspective and emotional/spiritual evolution. I would love an answer from my wise, experienced, respected elders on this one.
If the question is digressive- ignore it.
Sincerely,
Don.

Robert

Emerson was a major American masterpiece in a still forming country. Lennon was a major global masterpiece in a still forming culture. "God" came after Instant Karma, before Imagine. You may want to read "The Love You Make" to find out more about the inside story of the Beatles. As for Emerson, his works are many places. Read as much of him as you can. Robert Browning too. Also "The Initiate" by Cyril Scott, and The Key To Theosophy by HPB.

Diane Scholten

Don, I just have to put out there that I find your questioning, eager, youthful self charming & delightful. And it does my old hippie soul good to see the young ones quoting our heroes & asking after them. Makes me want to call up my own dear Dad and ask after some of his heroes. I think of that line from Mike & the Mechanics "every generation blames the one that went before" ---- that is, until you get past 50 and realize you stand on the shoulders of giants.

dcu

Here, here, Diane. I second your comment. It does us old baby boomers good when the young ones ask such questions. Thank you teresa for posting the poen "Brahma." It has been one of my favorites for many years.

My story to add to this stream:
Once when Thoreau was in jail for an act of civil disobedience, Emerson came to visit him. "Henry," Emerson said, "Why are you in jail?" to which Thoreau replied, "Ralph, why are you NOT in jail?"
Here's to Emerson, Thoreau, MLK, Mahatma Gandhi, and John Lennon. Saints they are, every one.

With this Full Moon in Aquarius and the New Moon eclipse approaching, look out status quo. There is something happening here, and you don't know what it is, do you Mr Jones? Blessings be to all.
Aum Nama Shivaya.
dcu

Robert

Hi dcu - Great insights and quote! There's definitely something going to be unveiled as a result of this Full Moon which will put some people's "shorts in a bunch," as they say. ;-)
