Mysticism comes from within – not from the east.
Both the east and the west have come to conclusions
simultaneous and similar in essence.
All things are constructed of but five elements.
Earth, Air, Water, and Fire are the obvious ones
And the fifth is Etheric Space, yet not the least.
We are made mostly of Water. Life does it give
To all parts of the body. It has memory.
Our thoughts and our emotions can change the structure
Of the H2O molecule. I should ensure
That I keep mine as positive as they can be
So that Water within me supports how I live.
Earth we are twelve percent of. What’s beneath our feet
As we touch our Earth Mother in our daily stroll
Is where all of life came from. We must keep in touch
With this wholesome soul being whom we owe so much.
Keeping close to the Earth indeed makes one’s life whole.
None among all Earth’s species she deems as elite.
We are six percent Air. The most dynamic part
Of our complex system, from moment to moment,
It keeps us most aware of each breath that we take.
We must ensure its purity for our health’s sake.
Do something aerobic. It can be infrequent.
This will cleanse well the blood and give life to the heart.
Fire is but a small part of us. We need sunlight.
That which burns within everyone is the life force.
Whether greed or compassion… resentment or love,
Every flame that exists is from the sun above.
Connecting to our Fire, we do honor our source
So that everything we do in life will shine bright.
The most expansive of the five, Etheric Space,
Exists throughout the cosmos and within us all.
How much access we have to it determines how
We align with the moment and saver the now.
To look up and give reverence is nothing small.
Within ultimate intellect we find our grace.
