4 Magical Elements

The four elements of nature
Water, Fire, Air, Earth
Four magical elements
Compassion, Joy, Equanimity, Loving-Kindness
Four magical elements
Water, wash away my ignorance
Fire, transform my suffering
Air, carry me along, free me from my attachments and teach me to let go
Earth, show me your ways
Allow me to receive all without aversion and discrimination, so my heart will become as big as you
Four magical elements
Teach me the meaning of true love

When you reach the heart of life you shall find beauty in all things

~Gibran

Consider the conscious life of the soul an occasion in which the phylogenetic tree becomes self-aware of the elemental convergence of conditions needed for its own enduring unity of experience. The archetypal process of nature is born in the creation of light, an emanation of  cosmic interactivity. Time is the distance traveled by (re)incarnational soul as it resonates in relation to what conditions its character.

“This basic world is brought into being through the vital pulse of life that sustains the existence of every organism. This world both exists as a seamless whole and is comprised of a multiplicity of differing dimensions and features (worlds). These dimensions, once enacted, always involve a blending or intertwining of their nature. In this sense, our identity as a living being and our relation to the generative force of that living cannot be easily discriminated. Thus in a fundamental sense, the continuous Enaction of this basic world acts as a fountain of generativity, embedded within the greater generative force of spirit, through which existence itself is brought into being…In this coemergence of self and world(s) any identity is creatively affected by the dynamics of the worlds in which they find themselves, while simultaneously affecting the very constitution of those worlds.[1]
