Spirit is the embodiment of the spirit within ourselves, and it is essential to our very existence and human beings. We can describe, or represent it in any way, but it will always be Spirit that dwells within humans, and it what has made humans to great.
Nature is religious in character, for instance, we can take what we learn from nature and apply into our lives.
Spirit is beyond description, just as our our thoughts can be. Just as when try to describe God, whose glory causes our minds to disperse of all descriptions. Thusly, our Spirit i what allows us to express such emotions.
You might think that Spirit isn’t what makes us human, therefore, presenting you with more information will prove you wrong.
Three questions arise when we think of nature; What is matter? When and where is it? To what is matter, the Ideal theory can say that matter is nothing but an presumed observation. There is nothing to prove that we exist, or anything exists. Thus, Idealism is a way to explain nature, and our Spirit, rather using physical, and scientific means. However you cannot deny our existence, it just leaves us empty from the very thing we are trying to appease: Spirit. Yet, this theory of nature doesn't suit , fancy.
Let these facts be absorbed by our minds, and these are only the beginning of explaining the difference between human Spirit and Nature.
Continually, there was a second question, when and where is matter? Our own mind can answer this, we find that our souls are what is important to our existence. All of the esteemed values and morals we seek to grasp, are in our own Spirit. nature isn’t formed around ourselves, but within ourselves. We have no bounds. We have the power to know all.. and see all, just as God himself, and in a way, we might just be God in human form. We have these opportunities, because of our Spirit, and these opportunities we can make the perfect world.
Nature has the same Spirit as humans. It is different from human Spirit in one way the human will can be broken, while nature can never be. Furthermore, god might have made us in his image but we are nothing like him, he had made us different from the other forms of life, and nonliving objects in this world to open our eyes to the wonders of nature and Spirit.
“Who can set bounds to the possibilities of man?” We are able to do anything we set our minds, the human Spirit is constantly forcing us to move forward. However this is contrasted when Emerson states that we are like God, but in a mortal form.
“...We learn that man has access to the entire mind of the Creator, is himself in the finite.” Emerson is stating that we have the power to know everything there is to be known about the world. God had made us is his image.
“...it animates me to create my own world through the purification of my soul.” As stated before, we have no bounds, and this excited Emerson to know that he has the power to change the world. However, this statement...
