THE PLAY OF THE FIVE ELEMENTS - PART 3


Everything manifest is simply the play of the five elements - space, air, fire, water, earth. 
The series will share the View of  the elemental interplay of "material life", the sense of beingness or "I Am", and the Absolute state which is prior to and gives rise to this elemental play.


Consciousness is the product of the five elements and their interactions. Consciousness is present as long as the five elements are present. When the great dissolution of the universe occurs, there is dissolution of the five elements, and consciousness also finishes. But the knower of consciousness, the Absolute state, is unaffected. In that state there is no fear of anything. Even when there is total destruction, the Absolute is merely watching, being in a state of witnessing.
