|The third excerpt represents the element of Water. It speaks of pure spiritual influences and feelings of love, and is drawn from The Tanach:
Job 14: 14 If a man die, may he live again? All the days of my service would I wait, till my relief should come--
Job 14: 15 Thou wouldest call, and I would answer Thee; Thou wouldest have a desire to the work of Thy hands.
Job 14: 16 But now Thou numberest my steps, Thou dost not even wait for my sin;
Job 14: 17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and Thou heapest up mine iniquity.
Job 14: 18 And surely the mountain falling crumbleth away, and the rock is removed out of its place;
Job 14: 19 The waters wear the stones; the overflowings thereof wash away the dust of the earth; so Thou destroyest the hope of man.
Job 14: 20 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth; Thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away.
Job 14: 21 His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he regardeth them not.
Job 14: 22 But his flesh grieveth for him, and his soul mourneth over him.
Job 15: 1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said:
Job 15: 2 Should a wise man make answer with windy knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind?
|The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from Poems by Bronte Sisters:
The wrecks of strength her soul retained;
For though the wasted body trembled,
The unconquered mind, to quail, disdained.
She crossed the sea--now lone she wanders
By Seine's, or Rhine's, or Arno's flow;
Fain would I know if distance renders
Relief or comfort to her woe.
Fain would I know if, henceforth, ever,
These eyes shall read in hers again,
That light of love which faded never,
Though dimmed so long with secret pain.
