Song of Myself”: by Walt Whitman

 With this heightened awareness, Whitman sensed the sacred aliveness of the world and the radiance and harmony of a spirit-force pervading every object and creature. The whole world was divine, including his own being and body. As he writes in “Song of Myself”:

  Divine am I inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch…

I see something of God each hour of the twenty-four, and

each moment then,

In the faces of the men and women I see God, and I my own

face in the glass.
