I’m reading the essay Self-reliance and I don’t understand what this passage is saying.. Can anyone translate?





the relations of the soul to the divine spirt are so pure, that it is profane to seek to interpose helps. It must be that when god speaketh he should communicate, not one thing, but all things; should fill the world with his voice; should scatter forth light, nature, time, souls, from the centre of the present thought ; and new date and new create the whole. Whenever a mind is simple, and recieves divine wisdom, old things pass away, ---means, teachers, texts, temples fall; it lives now, and absorbs past and future into the present hour. All things are made sacred by relation to it,--one as much as another. All things are dissolved to ntheir centre by their cause, and, in the universal miracle, pretty and particular miracles dissapear. If therefore, a man claims to know the speak of god, and carries you backward to the phraseology of some old mouldered nation in another country, in another world, believe him not.
