Robert Frost’s “plane of higher regard”

turns out to be connection and connectedness, those moments when one is aware of being engaged and immersed in someone or something else, that raises one to heightened feelings and states beyond customary separateness and isolation.

The connection might be a special person–his or her live in-person presence, or a sacred place, or a beautiful piece of music, or a poem, painting, or film that resonates deeply, stirring mind, emotions, and perhaps soul.

The higher plane of regard is a conscious heartfelt state in which contraries and conflicts are banished or automatically resolved all moves, instinctively, toward peace, love, and the harmony of olde we used to speak of and believe in the 1960s.
