In my opinion, Emily Dickinson being a transcendentalist applied her poetry to describe the process of transcendental meditation, specially the meditation of death. Through this poem the lady tries to let us to expierience the true mother nature by entering directly into the conscious. The poem can be described as deep in search of of the characteristics of death, the death that is a procedure for expansion and transformation coming from solidarity to a spaciousness.
When she says: " I actually felt a funeral during my brain, and mourners back and forth, kept treads, treading till it looked that perception was disregarding through... " She targets the sensation penalized in the body, sense the body's substantiality and solidity, and the heaviness caused by the law of gravity pulling about its very substance.
When states... " After which I observed them lift up a package and creak across my own soul, With those same boots of lead, again the area began to cost... " I really believe this being an expression with the awareness a " Lumination Body" expieriences, seeing, sampling, touching, and the like. The body that is certainly within the heavy or outer body.
" Since all the heavens were a bell, and being but an ear, and i also, and peace and quiet, some peculiar race, destroyed, solitary here" I believe can be described as reference to the phase where the " Light Body" becomes separated in the " Hefty Body" and everything floats free. " And then a plank in reason out of cash, and I decreased down, and down, and hit a world at every dive, and done knowing then-" I believe this to be gently and gradually dying and into the mild and clear of knowing. Thinking that all that comes to mind is older and are merely old thoughts, and we do not need to hold to them. Giving a new birth to ourself, to observe tranquility, mercy, amazing advantages, and recovery the pain we endure.
The poem is only superficially about the memorial; It is " concerned with the intuitive familiarity with eternity obtained through an intimation of fatality..... "
In a sense
