Sufi Element in Ralph Waldo Emerson's Poetry

"Emerson in "The Informing Spirit" states that the Soul is the greatest of all things and it is soul only which makes all other things and it is available in here and there. Soul has come from the Greatest One for us and it is extremely valuable and even by that one can be as like as its Owner –a Perfect one. Soul is the feather for flying up to the Real Peak and Real Nest and one who makes his soul pure and neat can fly such long distances towards his Origin without any exhaustion and hardships. 

There is no great and no small
To the Soul that maketh all:
And where it cometh, all things are;
And it cometh everywhere.
I am owner of the sphere,
Of the seven stars and the solar year,
Of Caesar‟s hand, and Plato's brain,
Of Lord Christ's heart, and Shakespeare's strain."
