Agape: Emerson Style

“Standing on the bare ground–my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space–all mean egotism vanishes.  I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or parcel of God.  The name of the nearest friend sounds then foreign and accidental;  to be brothers, to be acquaintances, master or servant, is then a trifle and a disturbance.  I am the lover of uncontained and immortal beauty.”

-Emerson
