elemental states of being...

water: this represents our attitude -- a constant flow of spirit that shapes and persists; seeming the same, yet always changing.

air: our thoughts -- existence without substance. shifting and boundless flights of fancy. the realm of imagination where ideas fly and fall; communicated through the vibration of voices.

fire: our feelings -- emotional intensity, passion and metabolism. the breaking down and release of energy as heat in the transformation of the end product, which is of course the element...

earth: our actions -- the physical results of all the above. easily measurable concrete manifestations.

I'm not studying alchemy, astrology or anything like that. I just pulled this all from my head, so it's about as original as I can get. interesting, eh?
