The Five

Elements are a way of describing the properties of everything outside and inside of us. To understand and assimilate the five elements, one must first understand and observe nature. Although we are physically away from nature in a digital world, our inner world is actually one with nature. Life is balanced by assimilating and preserving the unity of nature and spirit when it is in harmony with it. When we understand the balance of nature, we can see that the elements also form the basis for our physical world. Because everything we see there actually exists in our core. Earth is solidity; water is cohesion; fire is temperature; air is motion; and aether is the spatial dimension that accommodates the other four active elements. They are the constituents of every physical, sensual, mental, and spiritual phenomenon.
