The Four Elements of Fire, Air, Water, and Earth are not only the elements of the material world, but also the elements of ourselves. In the world, Fire manifests as light, Air as gas, Water as liquid, and Earth as solid. In ourselves, Fire manifests as the light of our consciousness, Air as the invisible movements of our mind, Water as the oceanic depths of our emotional hearts, and Earth as our physical bodies. Since we are comprised of nature to such a degree, we are absolutely continuous with it, like chunks of ice floating in water. We are nature personified. Since we are a product of nature and we can bear witness to our own consciousness, we need no further proof that nature is indeed conscious. In fact, nature is nothing more than subtle consciousness wrapped in the gross elements.
