Self-realization is the freeing of the mind and body through nature for it is medicinal, restorative, and healing. “The tradesman, the attorney comes out of the din and craft of the street, and sees the sky and woods, and is a man again. In their eternal calm, he finds himself. The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon” (Emerson, Norton 219). Nature solves and answers the satisfaction of the soul simply by entertaining the eye by its beauty and perfection. Nature finalizes the end and the beginning and all the connections in-between. Emerson believed that a person who is in touch with nature and God, is more aware of who they are. “Thought comes up with and reduces all things, until the world becomes at last only a realized will- the double of the man” (Emerson, Norton 219). According to Emerson, the comprehension of one’s self possesses a comprehension of the entire universe. Nature teaches and ministers the individual on the perception of the human race presumably through God’s eyes. 

Long story short, Emerson could get it.
