A Place Beyond Ideas

The year 2002 is ready to leave. This numerical sequence won’t happen again for a thousand years. What will the world be in 3003? While the future is intoxicating, awareness of the present moment is the key to understanding both the past and what is to come.  The answer is found in things transcendental, things mysterious and as yet unexplained, things beyond thought, ideas, and concepts—a nursery where creation has its place.

“I do not propose to write an ode to dejection,
but to brag as lustily
as chanticleer in the morning,
standing on his roost,
if only to wake my neighbors up.”

—from the cover of Henry Thoreau’s book, Walden

Thoreau looked for answers from direct experience in nature. How do we know anything beyond survival? There are alternate and sublime ways, which transcend traditional educational formulas,
of gaining direct personal knowledge.

Thoreau was a transcendentalist living in 19th century America. He, like others who shared a vision of knowing, was eclectic, taking and quoting the best from anywhere and anything. There are also eastern transcendental interpretations of existence that date back many thousands of years. The distinction between Eastern and Western transcendentalism is worth exploring. In doing so, you may clearly get a glimpse of the present moment, and the present moment, once grasped, is to be in the presence of God.»
