There are five elements from which all life is made.
Earth: It represents the strength of character. It teaches us to be nurturing, forgiving and to stay grounded to our roots.
Fire: Fire is energy. When we focus our energy, when we work together with our body, mind and soul, we can achieve anything we set our mind to. Fire is purifying.
Air: Air is the life force. It fans out the negative fire in your body. Air gives us दिशा और दशा (i.e. direction and the right understanding to walk on that direction ).
Water: Water teaches us to be saint like(शीतलता ). To keep flowing smoothly, to tackle every situation with tolerance, and to never stop from fulfilling it's purpose.
Space: Space teaches us splendour. To be unlimited. It teaches us to be above arrogance (अहंकार ), when you have everything.
And then there is a mystery element, without which all these above mentioned qualities are meaningless. That element is:
Consciousness : You have to be nurturing, grounded, tolerant, giving, purifying, forgiving, humble, yoy have to have a positive direction in life. But you have to be conscious of your surroundings in this modern world too, you should not let anyone walk all over you. You should be wise enough to handle every situation, displaying great character and alertness.
