All throughout human history we have used metaphors from the natural World to conceive of and describe the various states of consciousness. As we are born *of* nature, made from the substance of Gaia, it is the clear reflection of nature and the deva that make up her substance that we find the reflection of who we are and who we can be.
In this way, we use Water as a primary metaphor to describe the substance of the self which produces the mind and it’s perceptions, for we are made of more than 70% of this primal element, and are defined by the qualities of it’s nature within us.
This is deeply seen in the classic texts on spirituality and the nature of mind’s perceptions, where the ideal of a still and clarified consciousness is seen as either one’s clear reflection in still Water or, more often, the ability to see the substance of what lay beneath the Water in it’s stillness. When our mind is not rippling, says the ancient metaphor, we may see clearly that Which Is.
While many are familiar with this classic metaphor of still or rippling water, in the Mythica we take this a step further, using the same principle to illuminate the structure of form itself and the impressions which ripple out into the substance of the Akasha.
As part of expressing the vibrational World as she occurs on the surface of perception in the context of our journey to the embodiment of a new paradigm of Grace and Abundance, we describe the physics of the quest, the vibrational laws that govern our manifestations and their relevance in the cycle of birth, death and rebirth that defines the endless cycle of becoming in the World of forms.
The easiest way to describe this, in Nature, is to use the idea of Water. As a substance, Water takes many forms. It can be a liquid, a solid, and a gas, all aspects of rigidity and dissolution. Such is also the nature of our substance of self, seen in it’s progression from formlessness to impermanent form and back again, like Water falling from Heaven to Earth and back again.
