The form guides the material. This is like the way the soul guides the body. And the whole function of the body is to received the form/soul...
The point of the body is to be a receptacle for the message/form of the soul.
The body is physical and relates to physical situations. The soul does not have those limitations at all. The soul is 'where it wants to be'. The soul perceives the entire existence at once. The body by contrast functions within worldly parameters.
The body only relates to the activity of walking, but does not sense the purpose of where it is going. The spirit of what we are doing actually enlightens the activity. Spirit enlivens.
