Henry David Thoreau - Walden. “I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

A core belief of #transcendentalism is in the inherent goodness of people and #nature. Adherents believe that #society and its institutions have #corrupted the #purity of the individual, and they have #faith that people are at their best when truly "self-reliant" and #independent.

It is only from such real individuals that true #community can form. Even with this necessary individuality, #transcendentalists also believe that all people possess a piece of the "Over-soul" (God). Because the Over-soul is one, this unites all people as one being.

Transcendentalists desire to ground their #religion and #philosophy in principles not based on, or falsifiable by, physical experience, but deriving from the inner #spiritual or mental #essence of the #human.

Privileged to be one of the three invited guest participants at @NotreDame's Institute for Advanced Study, where my advisor Laura Dassow Walls presented "Children of the Fire: The Many Lives of American Transcendentalism." Every time I hear Dr. Walls speak, I'm both humbled and encouraged. Another ND faculty member once told me, "I'd take basket weaving from Laura-- she could make anything interesting, and connect it to something profound. #academic #academicexcellence #academiclife #anthropocene #transcendentalism #gradstudent #ndgradlife

Getting lost can be frustrating, but at the end of the day I can still say I had a nice time. Always trying to remember it's not always about the destination, but the journey.

"Nature doth thus kindly heal every wound. By the mediation of a thousand little mosses and fungi, the most unsightly objects become radiant of beauty. There seem to be two sides of this world, presented us at different times, as we see things in growth or dissolution, in life or death. And seen with the eye of the poet, as God sees them, all things are alive and beautiful." - Henry David Thoreau
Who among us doesn't love a little transcendentalism? Come on!

Sorry for the long book quote, but I think it’s a good one...”The youth is an intellectual merely, a believer in ideas, who thinks that ideas can overcome the world. The mature man passes beyond intellectuality to wisdom; he believes in ideas too, but life has taught him to be content to see them embodied, which is to see them under a sort of limitation. In other words, he has found that substance is a part of life, a part which is ineluctable. This humbler view of man’s powers is the essence of piety; and it is, in the long run, more rewarding, for nature seems best dealt with when we respect her without allowing ourselves to want too fiercely to possess her.” (pp. 173-174) #richardweaver #ideashaveconsequences #universityofchicagopress #pietyandjustice #realreality #transcendentalism #transcendence #classicalconservatism #orthodoxy
