It is my spark of life and creation.
Air reminds me to be clear of my intentions and fire to set boundaries or the fury of fire spreads....
The fires in Southern California have been destructive and yet fire gives back warmth and light. Fire is not all consuming or destructive when paired with air. The element of Fire highlights the need for boundaries and respect. Fires can be tended to and danced around so they can be a source of fun, joy,light, warmth, and power.
Fire is powerful and passionate.
Within each of us are all the elements.
How do I spark and honor the power of the elements within me?
Air fuels fire. Each of us has a flame that can be activated to create or destroy. It is our intention that either unleashes a benevolent force or a furious damaging one that spreads rapidly.
In this post I briefly consider what fire and all the elements have to teach me about myself and humanity.
With clarity of mind and heart I harness the power within me to attract what is needed to set forth in action small and large visions.
That clarity of mind is like the element of air that gives life and sets in motion the fire that creates what I desire.
My actions must be filled with love to respect all that is brought forth in assistance of my vision. Without love my actions cannot be kind and respectful. The fire within crosses the threshold of benevolence and sets ablaze a fury of destruction. Fire needs boundaries for it to be a source of delight and creation.
I have the strength to contain the fury of fire by remembering my humanity.
Grounded in my being I can remember that I am a speck of dust in a vast cosmos. From that perspective how I see myself reminds me that my power is humble and also mighty.
Mighty elements within and without.
The spark is ever present.
I honor the spark of life by having reverence for all of life.
Life is made up of all the elements.
The elements show me their strength.
They restore balance...
Balance is my way.
The way of the elements...within me.
Do I dare leap in faith or do I self-destruct?
Do I contain the fury?
Do I unleash the transformative force within?
How do you fuel the fire within?
