Elemental Water or Apas Tattva

A. Introduction
Let me begin by saying that humans can go foodless without incurring irreversible detriment for almost two weeks, in extreme cases, almost a month; but the period of time without water before irreversible detriment or demise is barely longer than two days. The situation is likewise with Spiritual Water, the Water of Life. We must receive constant vivification from the Waters of the Spirit or our vitality will wither up and we will turn to dust.
1. once it saturates, it precipitates (mc)
a. the same holds true for 1.) atmosphere (weather), 2.) solutions in water, 3.) ideas in a matrix.
2. with the addition of ‘evaporates’ one has the complete Hydrological Cycle
3. By partially suspending particles in water, one may wash and classify them according to size and density.

I. the nature of physical water

A. Water tries to assume sphericity
1. Envelops as a film
2. Falling droplets
3. Dew
B. Gravity draws water out: linear/planar
C. Sphere represents whole-istic: joining/uniting
1. Circulation/ circulatory
2. Hydrological cycle
A. Approx. 34 cycles @year
B. Greatest density 4C
C. 40,000L /hectare woodland transpiration/summer day
D. Meanders/ oxbows
D. Revolves about its axis
1. on surface flows from inside bend to outside
2. turns downward and returns along the bed, again rising
3. this axial revolution in extension begets helices
4. two spiraling streams lie next to each other in a stream
5. erodes outer banks: deposited on inner bank downstream
6. meanders lengthen the river and slow the water down
A. Preserving the stream bed and ground-water reserves
7. these motions found in pipes and in open water
A. Labrador Current/ Gulf Stream
E. One and the same Archetypal Principle manifesting in all dimensions of flowing water
1. Formative principle unaffected by physical conditions

F. further attributes of the nature of water
1. A sphere is a totality and water will always attempt to form an organic whole by joining what is divided and uniting it in circulation
2. Everything is inwardly connected and reciprocally related
3. Water is the essential element of circulatory systems. If a circulation is interrupted, a totality is broken and the linear chain of events of cause and effect as an inorganic law is set into motion (water of life).
4. The sap in the plant is only one half of its complete circulation, the other half exists in the atmosphere or in the earth. Plants are the vascular systems through which water the blood of the earth streams in living interplay with the atmosphere. Together earth, plants and atmosphere form a single great organism (one unity).
5. What is spread over the earth in plant world is contained within themselves in the animals and man (Adam Kadmon).
6. We see an archetypal principle in flowing water endeavoring to realize itself, regardless of the surrounding material. This is a formative principle which appears under the most widely varying physical conditions and is not affected by them (controlled variables have no effect).
7. In meandering rivers, it burrows in a rhythmical course into its surroundings and is subject to the variable of time (the meanders change over time). The relationship of water over time alters its spatial relationship to its surroundings. Everywhere water moves in rhythms..
8. It expresses the action between its own natural inclination to form a sphere and the linear force of gravity action upon it, moving along spiraling surfaces which glide past one another in curving forms
9. water is impressionable and subject to living formative forces and creative ideas of which it is a visible expression. As such water is the embodiment of a world of higher forces, penetrating through it into the material world and using it to form the living organisms.
10. The force of flowing water simply demands a spiraling form, demonstrated by a garden hose which writhes back and forth like a snake when let loose and cannot be subdued until the tap is shut off.
10a. water endeavors to round itself off into a sphere, the image of the whole cosmos.. if a directional force is added (gravity) the combination of the two will result in a screw-like form or a spiral, therefore
10. Child before birth is in a protective envelope of water. On being born it enters a relationship with the directional forces of the earth which result in a spiraling shape to the muscles and bones (cf. tortoise) like the water pouring from the lip of a pitcher. Many bones (ex human humorous), muscles of chest and upper arm, fissures in the scapula, lines of flow into the ends and into the interior where they end up in the trabeculae, (spongy bone structures).
11. Wave movements of any kind reveal an extremely impressionable nature
12. Two things are necessary for rhythmical movement: the water itself and some activating force. The form of the wave is the interaction of opposing forces, interplay. The wave is the newly formed third element arising between the polarities
12. Thus water is like an imminently sensitive sense organ, which becomes aware of even the slightest action. (see#9, #14))
13. In oscillation, containers filled with water, geometrically regular patterns of flow begin to occur, varying according to the oscillation frequency
14. We see moving, flowing, formative processes akin to those which living beings use to shape their bodies: manifold movements can flow into, over and through one another at and the same place and time. Movements are by nature super spatial; they do not exclude one another. The fluid element is thus a suitable medium for the form creating process. The fluid medium is the ideal bearer of movements, by which nature allows itself to be molded and formed. They appear in the spatial world as though from the higher realms and in so doing create law and order. Principle which nature applies in the creation of living creatures out of the fluid medium.
15. A gentle wave of contractions runs to and fro over the amnion of the egg from one end to another which continually messages and molds the content of the egg. Unceasing wave like motion of peristalsis in the intestines
16. Formation of a train of vortices
17. present in the morphogenesis of an embryo, the apical meristem of plant shoots (cauliflower cross section), the maffic folding of the earth’s crust , plutonic injection,
18. The surface contacts between two currents folds over to form vortices

G. Higher Nature of Water:
1. The organic form appears slowly and gradually as though surrounded and permeated by invisible streams; though this world is concealed we may perceive its signature: it is the world of formative etheric forces.

2. The human etheric body is the body of forces upon which the material body is founded. If the etheric body departs the physical will begin to decompose. It is thus constantly engaged in the activity of the spiritual and the material.

3. The cosmic qualities and movements of water are images of the etheric stream and mediators in the material world. The laws of the etheric world are mirrored in the world of water and these two carry on a constant creative dialogue: the element of water is the element of the cosmos, the waters of heavens.

4. All organic formation is based on this world of etheric forces that in turn receives formative impulses from the spiritual world. The etheric forces use the medium of water, which vibrates in resonance with them, passing on the formative impulses to the material world.

5. After the activity of morphology in the natal stages is complete, part of these forces can be re-applied towards further development in the areas of uprightness (rising up), walking, speaking and thinking. This etheric force reappears in the flow of thought. It is a force which is forever multiplying. Inherent in the memory is the ability to rethink what has been thought any number of times.

6. This principle or repetition appears in great variety; the formation of segments, vertebrae, reproduction, replication, propagation.

7. Every idea arises in a process of flow until the process congeals into a form: ergo to think fluently.

8. Like water, thought can create forms, can unite and relate the forms to one another as ideas, but can also separate and analyze; to dissolve and bind together.

9. Wherever there is water, life can become active in the material world; where there is no water this possibility ceases.

10. Water is essentially the element of life, wherever possible it saves life from death. It is the great healer of all that is sick and has lost its poise, for water forever strives after balance, a living balance, never a static one which would extinguish life.

11. Water gives of itself freely, never questioning the form into which it must change, when needed by plant, animal and man. Selflessly it gives itself to every need, retiring after acting as mediator, to be ready for new creativity.

12. In its very nature it is itself pure; can purify, refresh, heal, strengthen, revive and clarify all things.

13. It is called ‘the Mother of all that is special’.

14. Water does not close itself to light as does a solid body, but makes itself clear and transparent; in the rainbow it attains the fullness of these possibilities.

15. Selflessly it is the mediator, in the eye for all visions, in the ear for all that is audible.

16. It also opens itself up to the harmonies and laws of the heavens. It maintains a central position between the earth and the cosmos, remaining closely connected to both; uniting them in an eternal circulation.

17. Water holds a balance between solidification and evaporation, always retaining the possibilities of transformation.

18. It pictures the higher qualities of man’s development: the overcoming of rigidly in thought, prejudice, intolerance; the ability to enter into all things and to learn to understand them out of their own nature and to create unity out of polarities.

20. “He also went into the water for baptism…”

(from Sensitive Chaos, by Theodore Schwenk)

SPRINGS

I. Traditionally regarded as places of power and healing
A. holy wells
1. <AS> wella: to well up
B. supernatural attributes
1. The abode of living spirits and deities
2. Saints
C. therapeutics

II. Types
A. Branch heads
B. seepage springs
1. Water temp = to soil stratum (43-48F).
2. Rapid response to weather
3. Some minerals and salts
C. true springs
1. Deep strata
2.ancient aquifers and basins; water may be
Hundreds, even thousands of years old
3. Condenses underground due to temp gradient
4. This results in maximum density (4C) 39F
5. Young water redeposit dissolved salts as it ages downward
6. Densest water weighs down on the water table below it, pressing
It into geothermally heated rocks below, which expands the lower water
Upward against the dense water, which being uncompressible squishes
Outward laterally, forming the true spring.
7. Rich in carbonic acid and especially depleted in oxygen: drinking it straight away causes ‘damp-worm’.
( from Hidden Nature by Alick Bartholomew)

II. The primordial source of the rhythm of Life from which flows profound cosmic intuition and the deepest Love and devotion for Divine Providence
A. Unification of consciousness in supreme bliss (7th heaven), rapture and ecstasy are associated with the Prime Water Principle along with the virtues of purity and clarity, Divine Grace and Mercy, Peace and Forgiveness, happiness and contentment.
B. Life, feeling and sentience, as unified consciousness correspond to the cohesive force in relation to the mental matrix/ mental aura; awakening all potential mediumistic abilities, including the infallible prophetic knowledge of all destiny, dowsing, excellent clairsentience, enhanced concentration without weariness enabling one to identify easily with any virtue or scientific idea, and linguistic talent ~of beings, humans, animals, or symbolic language; also the ability to condense Astral sounds.
C. As Pure Astral Water one gets the ability to control magnetic fluid and master the rhythm of Life: reviving the dead or withering the living; sympathy/ antipathy, attraction; and affinities between beings. One also experiences a deep reverence for God or feels a ‘temple atmosphere’.
D. One gains the ability to master Water and magnetic fluid in the material aspect; master liquids; control magnetic/ attractive force; cohesion, coherence, gravity (and thus stride, gait, and movement); bring forth water, stop rain, calm waves, walk on water; make ice; distinguish glamour and illusion/ deception; and magnetic healing, as well.
E. It is through the deepest Love of Divine Providence for us and Divine Grace that prosperity, success, good fortune, luck, wealth, abundance, and increase in riches result.
F. (Special mention should be made of a special bond between the Z-gate and the Astral body; and Astral Self Preservation. Magi will understand what is meant).
G. And finally, the absolute effectiveness of the Akasha Principle regarding form can be seen to operate in the principles of Alchemy: EVAPORATE (disappear), CONDENSE (reappear); SOLVE ET COAGULA (materialize and dematerialize); UNIVERSAL SOLVENT (control the degree of density of any substance; (as well as translocation) ~as operating principles in the matter of form.

Re: Water
As the sensitive organ of perception and response mysterious third element of reciprocating surface allows for the audio/ visual transfer of formative energetic; relating ideas into words and visions. In the mental, it is the philosophical mercury which impressionates the allegory and metaphor. In the mental eye, it is the screen onto which the symbolic visions are projected from the ideal into formal meaning (representations).
It is this quality which makes it obvious (mc).

Elemental Earth or Prithivi Tattva

Let us begin by saying that earth is the vase or receptacle, “the Golden bowl”. What gives ‘shape, measure, number, weight’? That is it, then. The matrix is where the permutations are fixed.

For example: “one equals ten; the laws of analogy”. The Magus employs the Hermetic correspondences: cause and effect materialises. Therefore, too, Karma; Destiny. These are vessels of Akashic Prithivi. So, too, ‘the Conscience’ and one’s memories. These are Prithivi of Chitta. The Astral Matrix, which glues the Soul to the body: Astral Prithivi. (This Prithivi corresponds in the left kidney).
What measures? What weighs? The balance concerns value. The traditional scales used for judging the worth against the value of the known are contrived to weigh the two extremes of duality by the exercise of equilibrium at the fulcrum of balance. A process known as discretion.
At the Akashic level of Prithivi, this involves degrees of value within the Principle of Justice: a measure of Honor (of Divine Laws): Lawfulness, as such; Harmony as such. Within the Mental Prithivi it involves the Comprehension of Lawful Harmony. Memory, Conscience, remembering: to what degree are we within Integrity? The Unification of Spiritual Attributes as a healthy “I” consciousness involves Integrity. Or to what degree are we pushing our Conscience aside, putting it outside of our “I” consciousness? With what, then, do we fill that void? Drinking? Diversions? Self medication? Obsessions/ compulsions? The Security and Equilibrium of our emotional state leads us toward the yearning for character enoblement, virtue, and “decency”. This is Astral Prithivi, which leads toward Contentment; weighs our Souls against the Feather of Maat. Can restore Breath to the “living deceased”. The Throat and the Hand of Gedula are the seat of these Harmonious Enoblements. Along with these comes the perfect mastery of Metaphysics, the Embodied Quadrature of the Circle and Absolute Success. The Aspiration toward the Light (Spiritual Evolution) is in the right nostril and in the left nostril is Freedom and Independence. (This Narayan Ananda is the Living Example of the Truth in Advanced Mankind, and can help guide one to Moksha or Freedom; True Freedom: of Will, of Thought, of Action).
In the right eye of the Magus is the fulcrum of balance which integrates and unifies the Polarities of plus and minus and therefore the Principle of Universal Life, remedies any disharmony in Nature, and dynamizes any material object with a charge. This is the Voice of the bilabial plosives, the unvoiced being the maternal instincts.
The Akashic Prithivi will be discussed further in the site ‘Akashic Pillars’.

Tejas Tattva (or Elemental Fire)

In the Ancient Western Theory of Elements, Elemental Fire is the First Elemental Manifestation, proceeding from Spiritual Light. In the Eastern Tattvic System, it is the Tejas Tattva, proceeding from the Akasha.

Here, we begin with the central sun: with its attributes of Light and Heat.
I. Fire: the first element to come out of the Akasha, is characterized by heat and expansion.
A. Light has fire as its foundation.
1. Fire and Light begin any creation.
2. There are two modes in any element, and with fire the plus is constructive, creative and procreative; while the minus is decomposing and deconstructive (destructive)
B. The fire principle is active and latent in all created things.
1. It cannot exist by itself but must contain within itself the water principle.
C. These are some of the personal correspondences of the Fire Principle:
(positive)
Activity
Enthusiasm
Eagerness
Determination
Bravery
Courage
Creative energy
Will, energy, might
D. Every element of Fire can be transformed into Light and vice versa.
I. At the point wherein begins the two principles, there is understood to be one which is luminous (and ‘unencumbered’), and another which is material and dark.
A. The first is the principle of light, heat and movement.
1.It is active (or ‘masculine’,) and contains the generative motivation.
B. Heat is an effect of light.
1. It is the cause of rarefaction.
2. Condensation produces bodily density.
3. Light is only diffused by rarefaction but is impeded from progress by material density, which casts a shadow.
4. The light acts on the parts of dark matter which are closest to it and eventually penetrates all the way to the core.
5. By this penetration the matter is animated by the light. Fertilized with the ideas in this way, the matter bears forth the fruits of creation.
C. From God, the unbegotten Light, all others receive their light.
1. The First Light broadcast the germs of things into the matrix,
2.in which He has infused so many beauties and virtues in His image;
3. and the sun then fertilized them to make them germinate.
4. The Creator has placed in the sun an igneous spirit, the principle of movement and of gentle heat, such as is necessary to Nature for Her operations.
5. It communicates it to all bodies, and by exciting and developing the innate Fire it preserves the principle of generation and of Life.
A. Each individual partakes of it more or less.
6. The Fire of Nature is Her first agent. (for light was created on the first day: “fiat lux”). It actuates the potentials.
7. The principle of movement is light, and movement is the cause of heat.
A. Heat penetrates into the interior of the most opaque and hardest substances and animates the hidden nature.
B. Light penetrates only transparent bodies (its property is to manifest the perceptible accidents of the composites).
8. In departing from the sun, light strikes the dense bodies, celestial as well as terrestrial; it places their faculties into movement,
A. carries them with it, 2)reflects and 3)diffuses them in the upper Air as well as the lower.
B. Air, having a disposition to mix with the water and the earth, becomes the vehicle of these faculties
1. and communicates them to the bodies which are formed of them ,
2. or which by analogy are most susceptible of them.
3. These faculties are called influences.
D. Fire is divided into three kinds:
1. Celestial: (universal): diffused everywhere. Excites. Puts movement. Warms and preserves germs. develops.
2. (And particular): innate. implanted with the germ. Acts little except when excited.
3. Simple (or artificial): properties exactly contrary to Fire of Nature (though derived from it):
the enemy of all production, maintained only by the ruin of bodies, nourishes only by rapine, reduces all to ashes, destroys all which the other forms.
E. Everywhere there is production there must be fire.
F. There is no water without fire, which makes it to flow.
1. They act in concert in the generation of individuals.
2. We see continually that heat and dryness give form to everything.
A. If the earth is too moist, too soft, it is a mud, with no determined form.
B. Such was chaos before the heat or light had rarified it and caused the evaporation of a part of its moisture (“and God caused a firmament amidst the waters”).
C. Heat and dryness are only accidental qualities of the First Matter. It has been endowed on them upon receiving their form.
G. Nature’s Universal agent, the principle of elementary fire is nourished by all fatty matter, because that which is fat is of a humid and aerial nature. Although externally it may appear dry to us (such as sulphur or gunpowder)
1.this exterior conceals a fat, oily moisture which is resolved by the action of heat.
2. Phlogiston is the substance of fire which is found in bodies ~fixed fire~ fire inherent in bodies. It is inflammable matter, or the sulphur principle of substances; this quality is found in all the beings of nature. It abounds in the fatty or oily parts of the animal; those parts most susceptible to inflammation.
3. (M. Wipacher regards the animal (souls) as an igneous matter to which he gives the name of Automatic Phlogiston.)
A. It is said that animals are the fruit of light (on account of their movement).
H. Some of the ancients have said that the sun presides over fire and the moon over water.
1. Before matter began to receive its form, God invented Light.
2. It was immediately diffused in matter, which served as a wick for its maintenance.
3. At first diffused everywhere, Light seemed to collect in the sun, as several rays unite into a point.
4. The light of the sun is consequently a luminous spirit, whose rays are clothed with particles of Ether in order to become visible to our eyes.
5. They are streams which flow continually from an inexhaustible source and diffuse themselves throughout the vast extent of the universe.
I. Light is the Universal Agent, a)the Universal Plastic Mediator, b)the common receptacle of vibrations, c)of movement and d)of the images of form (maya).
1. This Universal agent is the Od of the Hebrews (spelled: oyin – dallet), a)the Astral Light of the Martinists.
2. The use and manipulation of this force constitutes the Grand Arcanum of Practical Magic.
J. The Universal Light, when magnetizing the world, is called Astral Light;
1. when it forms the metals, it is called Azoth or Sophic Mercury.
K. Yet these rays are not purely spiritual; they are corporative with Ether.
L. The nature of Light is to flow continuously.
1.Light is the cause, brightness is the effect.
2. When a lighted candle is extinguished, the igneous and luminous spirit, which influences the wick, is not lost, as is commonly believed.
a. Its action simply disappears when food is lacking for it.
b. It is diffused in the air, which is the receptacle of Light, and of the spiritual nature of the material world.
c. Bodies return in resolution to the matter whence they have been derived.
d. So also the natural forms of individuals return to the universal forms, of Light. Which is the vivifying spirit of the Universe. (this spirit is not Sun Rays, for it penetrates even to the center of the earth, when the sun is not even out or on our horizon).
e. The igneous spirit, born into bodies by rays, is easily distinguished from them.
M. Rays are communicated only so long as they remain unimpeded by opacity.
1. The igneous spirit penetrates even the densest bodies, since we can feel the heat on the other side of a wall. The heat exists even after the rays have disappeared with the luminous body.
2. Every transparent body transmits this igneous and luminous spirit without transmitting the rays (viz. air);
3. in furnishing a new body to this spirit becomes illuminated and forms new rays, which are different from the original ones.
4. Every transparent body, while serving as a means to transmit this spirit not only finds itself enlightened, but becomes luminous and this increase in brightness is easily manifested to those who notice it.
a. This augmentation of splendor would not take place if the transparent body transmitted the rays as it had received them.
N. (The substance of Light, because of the tenuity of its parts, cannot be examined by number, measure, or weight.)
The essence of Goethe’s Color Theory
Taking Goethe’s color theory into consideration and going back to the Tree of Life diagram, we find that:
I. the basics of the theory
A. light shining through a turbid medium veers toward Red, becoming Orange as turbidity increases, with Brown representing the greatest turbidity (a la sandstorms)
B. standing in illumination and looking away towards darkness through a clear medium produces blue, with absolute transparency veering toward blue-violet and translucent media producing pearly white or light blue.
II. the arrangements of the densities
A. from top to bottom: rarified to substantial in thickness
B. from L. to R.: serene to turbid in terms of medial activity
C. with Kethyr represented as absolutely clear (white) and Malkuth represented as absolutely opaque (block (shadow)/ black).
III. the arrangements of the colors
A. roygb, from Mars to Jupiter w/ yellow showing up as brown due to densities
B. crosswise complements and triangular 2ndary combinations with Sun
C. the violet of ‘Daath’ acting as a condenser.
D. the spectral rainbow begins to appear beneath the sun and below.
Goethenean Perception of the Colors Red and Blue

I might add a goethenian notion interpretation: that from the perspective of ‘enlightened intellect’ a la perception, red would signify the perception of illumination (from the perimeter) through an atmosphere obscured by headstrong self-will or determination, while an atmosphere of clarity would perceive yellow through openness towards Spiritual Telephonics. Similarly, should the enlightened intellect view Understanding through a medium of unobscured clarity the perception will be that of clearest blue bordering on ultraviolet, whilst perception through a medium of preconceptions will occlude the Understanding through various degrees of milky cloudiness.

Vayu Tattva

Elemental Air or Vayu Tattva
The Spirit of Waju is Wisdom. From Illumination comes Pure Ideas. The effect in the mental realm is enlightened intellect: Discernment, Understanding, Truth, Knowledge, perception, etc.
In combination with the Spiritual Fire of Light, one gets the self-spiritualization; the transforming of Ideas into form, or transformation; and the influence of the mental body with Ideas or Divine Virtues.
Again with this Highest of Intellectual Cognition in the Spiritual Waju ~the combination of Air and Fire~ as it were, impregnates the Ideal (formatives) into the receiving medium~ which is the Creative Power (of Highest Purity and Divine Virtues).
In this one gets clear spiritual sight and receives symbolic visions. By the virtue of Waju in the mental faculty one is able to recollect all memories of previous incarnations, complete with one’s previous abilities, languages, etc. If this were experienced in a very short time span, the result would be profound remorse.
As an agent of moderation in the emotional body: one succeeds in Astral Equilibrium, or the blessing of untouchable character ennoblement: one achieves Astral Invisibility.
Astral Waju also results in the ability to relate ideas into words; all talents: eloquence, poetry, music: good cheer, proper atmosphere for entertainment; also the gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, understanding symbolic language; as well as one method of levitation. Good rapport, of course with Air Beings. The unique method of ‘Air Medium Telegraphy’ is particular to Astral Waju (as Telepathy is to Mental).
The ability to work miracles/wonders in the material world relates here, as well; in the mastery of Kotodama, Tantric Mantra and Qaballah, or all systems of the spoken word, such as Qaballistic Alchemy; allowing one to stimulate and influence matter with virtues/powers and impregnate any form: changing matter via The Word.
Body-wise, it is specific to treatments of chest ailments, cures fatigue, makes body tenacious and strong, gives endurance; brings cheerfulness; and contributes to personal health, appeal, beauty, youth, vigor, vitality, and harmony.

Below is a precis of some of the characteristics of physical Air which are thought to be allegorical to Elemental Air, or Waju. The physical atmosphere is, of course, a rather different category. *
I. Partly fluidic in nature
A. moves faster than water
1.aprox.14x in vortex formation
B. higher compressibility
1. Water compressible as steam
C. immense variations in volume, expansion and
Contraction/ alteration of density
1.accompanied by caloric change
D. Transfer of rhythm or sound impulse accompanied
By tiny delicate heat exchanges.
1. This gives atmosphere a 3D effect, as compared with
Surfactant planar 2D of water
2. Viz. lungs cf gills
E. elasticity
1. Birds in formation linked as one elastic body
2. Wave field created by wings spreads out at speed of sound
3. Acts like one collective muscle
4. An orchestra flying on sound
F. flight in nature predicated to revolution about a longitudinal axis
1.spiral or helical
2. Single phases of Helix ‘blueprinted’ in form of airborne seeds and insects.

II. What is visible in Water as form, is faster in Air, becoming audible
A. inner nature revealed by sounds/voices: the soul of the world
1.birdsong
2.wind in the pines/wood leaf
3. Flying insects creating endless vortices
B. swarms of hovering insects affected by whistling or humming
C. P.E.Schiller, Tyndall; sensitive flames: audible sensitivity.
1. Air speed; rushing sound; heterodyne
D. speech creates actual forms in the Air
1. Similar to forms produced in the world of birds and flying insects
2. Human speech shows greatest range and variation

III. Comparative Natures
A. solids are the most stationary, gasses are the most mobile, liquids are in between
B. Water at excessive speeds vaporizes
1. Falling water in nature dissolves into drops and mist and slows by floating
C. Air able to change speed and directions quickly
1. The vehicle of weather
2. Spontaneous response
3. Sensitive to heat
4. Changes density: breathes
5. Thus is the body of soul forces
6. Bearer of sonics, light and color
D. the order of natural elements is the order of spiritual embodiment in creation.

* from Sensitive Chaos by Theodore Schwenk

Akasha

Akasha is Spirit: Universal Spirit. As such, it is complete in itself. This means two things; the first being that it is basic and homogenous, not needing components for its composure and simple (not compound), and the second that nothing from the outside may be added, as its completeness encompasses every other existence. As a feature of this Universal Compass, it is called All-present, meaning that it is everywhere and there is no place that it is not. As such its Omnipresence is Infinite and transcends Space.
This All-Encompassing feature extends across the vast expanse of Time, as well. As such, all events; past, present, and future exist simultaneously in the Akasha. This means that the Universal Spirit not only transcends Time but it is Eternal, also. So Spirit has neither beginning nor end and transcends the Space-Time continuum, being everywhere at once in the Absolute temporal singularity of the Eternal Now.
Being simultaneously everywhere at once and having been there for all eternity, the Spirit cannot help but know everything: everything that ever happened, everything that is happening now, and everything that ever will happen is constantly known to the Spirit, simultaneously at all times. This feature is called Omniscience (All-knowing).
As a matter of fact, everything that happens, happens because of the Akasha. Everything that was ever created came into being from the Akasha; also everything that ever will be created. The Akashic Plane is called the Causal Plane. Being the Causality of all existence gives the Universal Spirit Absolute Power over all Creation. This feature is known as Omnipotence.
There is One Key which opens the Door to All that Power and Omniscience and that Key is Love. Spirit is Life and the Reason for Living is ultimately found to be Love. Therefore, only by living in Harmony with the Spirit of Love can we open the Door of Life and dwell in the Light of the Living Spirit. To do otherwise is not to escape from the infinite expanse of the Spirit but to starve one’s Inner Light unto extinction.

In conclusion: Akasha is Omnipresent, Eternal and Timeless, Omniscient, Omnipotent and All-loving; it is what religions call ‘God’.
