Walt Whitman is very fond of the company of animals. The poet desires to live among the animals because according to him animals are calm and self-sufficient. They do not whine and weep about their conditions. They are always satisfied and do their duty towards God.

In the lines you've given, it seems that Whitman is speaking of guiltless humanity--clear conscience and souls--must know who they are within themselves before they can recognize the beauty in humanity outside of the self.
