About the alchemist

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn't make any sense. ~Rumi

    I wonder if Mr. Emerson was familiar with these words of Jesus? “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and follow me…Whoever will lose his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world yet forfeits his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26). Seems like Mr. Emerson understood that living for oneself is futile in the end; living for God brings fulfillment now and eternal rewards in the future.
