A Portion Of An Electromagnetic Thread

And this deep power in which we exist, and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in any hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one. 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.

Emerson’s 1841 essay The Over-Soul is filled with new age information. The world we call reality is a connected mass of consciousness. Within that mass are smaller masses of consciousness that function as a part of the whole. Each mass is unique, but every mass shares a common deep power or what we might call a portion of an electromagnetic thread. We can call our portion any name, but we call it the soul thanks to our religious education.

The soul is the seer and the seen; the object and the subject; matter and non-matter. The soul expresses itself within specific realities in endless ways. We don’t perceive the soul as a multi-dimensional entity because that premise conflicts with what we have been taught to believe.

But, when all the air is squeeze out of those distorted beliefs, we discover that we are just one portion of our soul. We experience our reality in order to expand the awareness of all portions of the soul. That expansion is then expressed by the whole electromagnetic thread that connects all that is. That expression is the reality we all know, and call by its man-made name−God.
