"These writings are the whisperings of God's voice to me during those early periods of illumination which occurred in May in every year of my life since I was seven.
These periods of ecstasy- which are always characterised by cosmic illimitation, lasted from ten to fourteen days, to which time I was obliged to seek solitude in the forests.
I endeavoured to express the thoughts and moods of these periods of ecstasy as my varying lack of body awareness balanced with my ever increasing consciousness with God and nature."

'Deeply inspired by Nature, Walter Russell early in life sought solitude in walks through meadows and woods, by lakes and streams. The Book of Early Whisperings was written during those early years when he loved to spend time alone sketching his favourite scenes or in contemplation of the natural order of life.

Written in beautiful and inspiring meditative poetic prose, The Book of Early Whisperings includes seven full-page reproductions of Walter Russell’s famous woodland sketches. “Hours have been but moments in this glorious day in My World. How wonderful this day. How beautiful—when one’s very Being is vibrant with celestial harmonies. How untouched and untouchable am I while the aftermath of Nature’s symphony still resounds within me.”

Walter Russell was a accomplished sculptor, painter and philosopher who believed that every man has consummate genius within him. He became known as a natural philosopher and for his unified theory in physics and cosmogony. Russell was a polymath and also proficient in architecture, music, business and ice skating. He became a professor at the institution he founded with his wife, the University of Science and Philosophy.'
