The Kingdom Is Within

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 particle of God.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Nature"
