Children are drawn at first to the most primal elements. All energy is elemental, inside us or around us, and each element is a spiritual, as well as material fact. We can reconnect as simply as children first connected. Life itself resists stasis. If it’s not growing, it’s falling apart. The inner fire that lets us know we are alive.
“There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.” Albert Einstein (German born American Physicist)
“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach” Henry Beston
“The most common trait of all primitive peoples is a reverence for the life-giving earth, and the Native American shared this elemental ethic: The land was alive to his loving touch, and he, its son, was brother to all creatures.” Stewart L. Udall
