5 reasons the elements are essential

Without the sun there is no life.
Without wind there is no change.
Without water there is no flow.
Without Earth there is no foundation.

However, without Aether there is no Spirit.

The first four are essential to physical well being and nature offers so much support for us. If we took time to study each aspect we could learn so much on inner levels.

For example, we find it difficult to look at the sun when it’s shining brightly. As Eberhard Arnold (1883 – 1935) said:
Even the sun directs our gaze away from itself and to the life illumined by it. It is there for everyone not a select few. Are you?

When we meditate or pray, the wind carries our thoughts and words aloft. It also carries our judgements and criticisms. Our world is becoming more and more critical and the winds become stronger. Harmony 21st is a time when we join together to share energy that the winds may be soothed and criticism calmed. Will you join us?

Water teaches us how to flow with life. The river only breaks its banks when there is a surge of water after prolonged rain (emotion). When we are willing to flow with life, we are able to be at one with all things. Can you?

As Francis Bacon (1561 – 1626) said:
Natural abilities are like natural plants… they need pruning by study. When we pay attention we create a solid foundation where all can thrive. What’s your attention span?

With Aether we have Spirit. As Black Elk (1863 – 1950) said:
All over the sky a sacred voice is calling your name. Can you hear it? What’s your response

Do you allow the elements to show you the way to be all you can be?
