Ralph Waldo Emerson
In their world and mind, man is naturally good, even divine, because of his intellect...
Emerson espouses the beliefs that human beings are connected to everything in the nature world by a common soul and states that all human beings have access to this soul through their own intuition
"Transcendentalism embraced some principles of Christianity, eastern religions, and the English romantics, but was not subcategory of any of them."
Their beliefs wrap around God and nature...
They viewed god as someone who didn’t focus on one person. Transcendentalists viewed god as an essence through metamorphosed nature that exists in the world like a gentle breeze sublimed to pleasure the senses of all.

Nineteenth Century American Transcendentalism is not a religion (in the traditional sense of the word); it is a pragmatic philosophy, a state of mind, and a form of spirituality. It is not a religion because it does not adhere to the three concepts common in major religions: a. a belief in a God; b. a belief in an afterlife (dualism); and c. a belief that this life has consequences on the next (if you're good in this life, you go to heaven in the next, etc.). Transcendentalism is monist; it does not reject an afterlife, but its emphasis is on this life
They are their own authority. They all decide together. Fight the man, man.
