“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 eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God.”

Written by RWEmerson

“In my journal I wrote that whilst standing in midst of the grandeur of a Brazilian forest, “it is not possible to give an adequate idea of the higher feelings of wonder, admiration, and devotion which fill and elevate the mind.” I well remember my conviction that there is more in man than the breath of his body.”

Written by Charles Darwin in his Journal

So here is my question: do you think that the words “I am part or particle of God”, and “the higher feelings of wonder, admiration, and devotion” really mean or intend to mean the same thing?
