WOOD burns to make FIRE, whose ashes decompose into Earth, where are born and mined METALS, which enrich WATER, which nourishes trees(WOOD).
I love the simplicity in the circle outlined here by Chinese Medicine’s wisdom. I study a lot of Chinese Medicine and believe in the elements which turn and create us and everything we live with. I also love to connect this Cycle of Creation to my own creations when making art. There is always a churning fire inside the brain that feels the need to burn freely and escape. If it can be released through art making, or some other form of release, then it can come to rest in the Earth. These expressed, released and rested remnants of our lives are rich, raw, and real. They are our hearts desire and pure language, they are works of art if we let ourselves create. They become rich Minerals that are sought after and mined like Gold! They enrich the very life blood of our lives, the Water. In turn this provides us with more Wood and Fuel to keep our Home fires burning and that Spark for life alive!
So keep the Cycle Alive! Let the Fire out through healing work like Art! Join the Real cycle of life!
