How can we understand Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Mind on Fire?

Do you have a memory that shines bright in your mind that could help you come close to the experience Ralph Waldo Emerson describes: “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 eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me…” A year ago, I felt something like that camping at Standing Rock when the sliver moon rose above the camp as the sun set. Bring your experiences with this Earth with you on Sunday—they will draw you closer to Emerson. David Norton’s guitar music will draw that mystery around us.
