THE PLAY OF THE FIVE ELEMENTS - PART 4


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.


Once you reject what you are not, whatever finally remains, the leftover, is yourself – your true nature. Presently, whatever you know is ‘I am’, this ‘I am’ is the product of the five elements. Out of the elements comes the food body and because of the food body, that ‘I amness’ is sustained. And you are also not that ‘I am’. ‘I am’ is the taste, the fragrance of this food body. The ultimate ‘you’ has no fragrance, no taste, no touch of ‘I amness’.

Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.
