When I think of Air, several things come to mind. First I think of consciousness and knowledge; the consciousness of Self as well as the Collective Consciousness and the knowledge that both of them hold. Next I think of the resource of Air as Breath and how it drives the life force. Finally I think of the Powers of Speech, Story, and Song.
When it comes to consciousness and knowledge; I think of how inspiration and knowledge come like the warmth of the rising sun, in rays after the cool night. New information and perspectives allow us as sentient beings to relate and communicate with understanding and the ability to relate ideas. This communication participates not only in expanding our personal Self consciousness, but also perpetuates the growth of the Collective.
Breath itself is the single most important experience we share with every other living creature on the planet. Through this relationship we can recognize the life force both in the sharing of Air in breath and provides a natural path for inspiration to enter our bodies physically.
Breath also provides a medium and fuel for the stories we tell, the words we speak, and the songs we sing. When we participate in these activities we add a level of vibration or a pattern within Air itself that is imeadiately discerned by our ears as sound.
In closing I’d like to suggest contemplating the way these different aspects of Air cooperate as a whole; consciousness, breath, and the vibrations of sound. Perhaps make this a subject of a future meditation session.
