Unity in Diversity

I came across a passage of study recently in one of my online Philosophy Works sessions and it really spoke to me. I will quote it below:

“There is one mind common to all individual men. Every man is an inlet to the same and to all of the same. He that at once is admitted to the right of reason is made a freeman of the whole estate. What Plato has taught, he may think; what a saint has felt, he may feel; what at any time has befallen any man, he can understand. He who hath access to this universal mind is a party to all that is or can be done … ”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essays

I think if I was to try to add to, or explain the quote I would not do it justice, so I will leave it for you to ponder :-).
