The relationship with nature ceases for emancipated beings, its purpose having been satiated, but its processes continue to affect others.
As soon as the vehicles of nature which act as agents of the seer fulfill their task of freeing him from his mental and sensory prison, they are stilled, having reached their purpose. The bond between the seer and nature comes to a culmination. Nature ceases to exist for him. He is able to perceive his own form (svarupa).
However, the vehicles of nature, elements, their subtle qualities, cosmic intelligence, individual self, ego, intelligence, senses of perception and organs of action are common to all, so for others, who remain caught up in the world's commotions, the bondage lives on.
