Ralph Waldo Emerson -
The great American Man of Letters, Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote at age 41, “be an opener of doors for such as come after thee and do not try to make the universe a blind alley.”
I interpret this to mean, contribute to the overall wisdom of the world. Do not perpetuate superstition and dogma. Challenge the isms that limit our experience of the greater good. Share your ideas with the young. Teach them to think critically. Show the power of Love by
your own actions.
Emerson also said “beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on the planet.” Yes thinkers are a threat to the status quo, and innovative thoughts are a threat to our personal habituated life as well. But that is exactly what is required of us if we want to keep the doors of perception open to the next generation and the next.
Yes, you and I are that great thinker. You and I are the ones we have been waiting for, you and I are the solution. It is in our nature to evolve, to contribute, to open the doors of our shared perception. We are beginning to awaken to the spiritual truth of our own being. As Rumi said so eloquently “don’t go back to sleep.”
