Closet of God

To the well-born child, all the virtues are natural, and not painfully acquired. Speak to his heart, and the man becomes suddenly virtuous. Within the same sentiment is the germ of intellectual growth, which obeys the same law. Those who are capable of humility, of justice, of love, of aspiration, stand already on a platform that commands the sciences and arts, speech and poetry, action and grace. For those who dwell in this moral beatitude already anticipate those special powers which men prize so highly.

The lover has no talent, no skill, which passes for quite nothing with his enamored maiden, however little she may possess of related faculty; and the heart which abandons itself to the Supreme Mind finds itself related to all its works, and will travel a royal road to particular knowledges and powers. In ascending to this primary and aboriginal sentiment, we have come from our remote station on the circumference instantaneously to the center of the world, where, as in the closet of God, we see causes, and anticipate the universe, which is but a slow effect.

Ralph Waldo Emerson in his 1841 essay The Over-soul gives us a peek at the world within the psyche. He touches soft spots in our belief structure, and we find ourselves in a state where conventional and practical sanity disappear. There is another state lurking beneath our accepted framework, and it is far different than we allow ourselves to imagine. We condone real events in time, but they change radically through the ages. People in ancient times believed that Gods roamed the earth and fought battles on land as well as on sea. Those people were considered sane. Their mental framework was different than ours, but it was accepted as real.

We accept certain portions of physical reality and discount other portions that form in the corridors of our dreams. The energy within our dreams continues to form events that turn into some sort of physical experience. Dreams are the eyes of the psyche and the closet of God where we package our waking reality from elements that are rooted in our psychological reality. We are immersed in and are a part of pure energy, which is created in every moment. Our physical universal system is being replenished by the second.

Our psyche is part of that closet where energy is drawn into to the self and out of the self in individualization. This psyche behavior is performed by the psychological pulses that interact with the electrons in our world. We experience events, which are physical as well as non-physical. These events exist at once and are connected to the dream state. We only fit a small portion of these probable events in our space-time framework so only a fraction of them occur physically.

We are all well-born children in the dream world where probable events are chosen with great distinction and discrimination. We organize our experiences in a creative mixture that tells the conscious mind a story, and it is constantly being rewritten as we open the closet door a little wider. As the door continues to swing open, we sense a springboard where all events emerge from interweaving probabilities, and we name that springboard― life
