How does the excerpt from connect "The Great Lawsuit" with the transcendentalists idea of the overso

Read the following excerpt from Margaret Fuller's "The Great Lawsuit." How does this passage connect with the transcendentalists' idea of the oversoul? Use at least two examples from the text to explain your answer. In all ages, men have said the Gods themselves came down to dwell with them; that the All-Creating [God] wandered on the earth to taste in a limited nature the sweetness of virtue, that the All-Sustaining [God] incarnated himself, to guard, in space and time, the destinies of his world; that heavenly genius dwelt among the shepherds, to sing to them and teach them how to sing. Indeed, . . . He has constantly shown himself favorable to shepherds.
