Essentially the elements are fundamental energies and depending on how we unite them, and in what proportion, in what time, with what qualities, they will give birth to everything we know. They arise from the creative essence, so the qualities of the elements are present even in the invisible.
When we work with the elements we seek to balance, find order in our way, we seek to recover the strength or recover parts of us that are damaged.
By the changes of life, we can alter the internal elements, thus we can have damaged the earth, the water, the fire, the air and the ether, by lack or by excess.
In many works on the elements the ether appears as Quintessence, in the Orient as space. Ether means clean sky, firmament, the purest air of the mountains. With Ether we refer to the volatile quality of space that everything awaits, everything unites, everything forms. If the ether did not exist, the other elements could not be fitted.
