The mind is form, form is body.
These forms and nature seem to be one and the same thing, but seen from different perspectives: ”while the mind is being the world as seen from within, and ’nature’ being the world as seen from without (C G Jung)”, they both seem part of the world of forms as we try to imagine them.
We take counsel with ourselves in the realm of imagination wether we acknowledge it or not.
In Inuit mythology, Silap Inua (‘possessor of spirit’) or Sila (‘breath, spirit’) was, similar to mana or ether, the primary component of everything that exists; it is also the breath of life and the method of locomotion for any movement or change. Sila is believed to control everything that goes on in one’s life.
Sila is a deity of the sky, the wind, and of weather. Though identified as male, he is never depicted, and thought to be formless. There are very few myths in which Sila is a character, because he is not thought to have many personality characteristics. Sila is also the substance of which souls are made of.
The word [siˈlʲa] has meanings like “universe”, “outer world”, “space”, “free space”, “weather”.
Sila is the spirit that all things are made off, the wind Indweller. Silap inua, a great spirit, he lives in everything and keeps everything separate and yet together. Silap Inua is the spirit of the sky and the master of life who gives anirniq, the breath of life, to all living things, and can take it away. In fact, the term sila has many meanings: it is intelligence, it is the order of things, the atmosphere, the world itself.
Sila is just like a casing around the earth. It is as though the earth is inside Sila.
“If the elementary particles in the realm of potentiality wouldn’t form a coherent whole, the empirical world that is emanating out of the cosmic potentiality would be chaotic. However, the visible isn’t chaotic. Rather, it always appears to us as a coherent system. Thoughts usually appear in a conscious mind. Thus, the appearance of thoughtlike forms in the cosmic potentiality suggests that consciousness is a cosmic property. The universe is conscious and our thinking is the thinking of the cosmic mind, which finds consciousness in us!”
Traditions embody forms and make them a living reality to the mind.
