The Human Clay
Now that we understand how the formless manifests into form on the deepest of levels, we are primed to understand the nature of the mortal form, how these elements manifest through our experience and what relationship that has to the Quest to realize the self.
As we explore the manifestation of the Akasha through the World Tree, we ask the question, how do the five primal elements manifest through my human experience?
In ancient mythologies there is the concept of a golem. A humanoid figure, made of clay, which is animated by the breath of the Divine. When we approach the concept of incarnation from the perspective being awareness temporarily moving through a human body, this concept aptly describes what it means to be human.
Here, we see the primal element of Earth, which forms the basis for our flesh, bones, and the container for the other elements of our being. Like a golem animated by the breath of the Divine, we are breathed through, our selves made of the primal elements.
Here, the Fire (or Agni) of transformation has it’s cauldron of Earth, animated by the Aloha of Divine breath (Air), communicated in the subtle flowing substance of Water along our progression through inner change occurring with the framework of the Akasha of ether (spirit) manifest in spacetime. Together these elements of the Natural World of which we, as part of this unified field are fundamentally constructed of, give rise to the living deva that is the human being, our self, made of the same substance as the plants, rocks, and substance of the Creation of which we are a small expression.
This is intrinsically tied into the application of deva yoga, in which we clarify the state of our lens-of-consciousness through right-relationship with the elemental energies of the Natural world which are more pristine than the resolving conditions and impressions within our subconscious that define our reception of Abundance.
