I will put it very simply. In May of 1921 God took me up into a high mountain of inspiration and intense ecstasy. A brilliant flash like lightning severed my bodily sensation from my consciousness and I found myself freed from my body and wholly in the Mind universe of Light, which is God.
And then God said to me, “Behold thou the unity of things in Light of Me, and the seeming separateness of all things in the two lights of my divided thinking. See thou that I, the Undivided, Unchanging One, am within all divided things, centering them, and I am without all changing things, controlling them.”
And the secrets of the universe were unfolded to me in their great simplicity as the doors to the Light opened fully to my consciousness. In less time than it takes to put it into words, I knew all there was to know of the CAUSE of all effect, for there was very little to know. In that hour it was as though the infinity of complexity within the moving kaleidoscope were suddenly taken apart and it was shown to me that the entirety of its illusion was but three mirrors and a few bits of broken glass. Likewise the universal kaleidoscope was but moving mirror waves of dual light extending from their equilibrium in God from Whom all creating things spring in octave electric waves just as ocean’s waves spring from the calm sea.

A Quote by Walter Russell on electric, sea, universe, electricity, breathing, breathe, oneness, unity, equilibrium, balance, and nature

We are all electric creatures floating in the electric sea of this electric universe. Every electric thing in the entire universe breathes electrically into itself from the rest of the electric universe which is outside of itself. It also breathes out of itself into the rest of the universe.
In more simple words, we might say everything in the universe is trying to become every other thing; and every condition of everything is trying to become every other condition. A hot iron, for example, will strive to become as cool as its environment, and the cool environment will strive to become as hot as the hot iron. They compromise and find an equilibrium between the two, which is neither the one thing nor the other. This conspicuous fact is one of the most characteristic traits of Nature.

A Quote by Antonio Machado on poetry, wayfarer, footsteps, foam trails, and sea

Wayfarer, the only way is your footsteps,
there is no other.

Wayfarer, there is no way,
you make the way as you go.

As you go you make the way
and stopping to look behind,
you see the path that your feet will never travel again.

Wayfarer, there is no way -
only foam trails in the sea.

Antonio Machado

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on eternity, exploration, life, sea, and soul

Exultation is the going
Of an inland soul to sea,
Past the houses - past the headlands -
Into deep Eternity -

Bred as we, among the mountains,
Can the sailor understand
The divine intoxication
Of the first league out from land?

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

A Quote by Isak Dinesen on cure, health, salt, water, tears, sweat, and sea

The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on gift from the sea, gift, gifts, sea, patience, faith, and beach

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach -- waiting for a gift from the sea.

A Quote by David Guterson on childhood love, glass box, sea, childhood, love, devotion, and anxiety

He decided then that he would love her forever no matter what came to pass.  It was not so much a matter of deciding as accepting the inevitability of it. It made him feel better, though he felt perturbed, too, worried that this kiss was wrong.  But from his point of view, at fourteen years old, their love was entirely unavoidable.  It had started on the day they’d clung to his glass box and kissed in the sea, and now it must go on forever.  He felt certain of this.
