LIVING BETWEEN EARTH AND SKY
We human beings live between the two realities of earth and sky. The earth stands for all that is practical, material, tangible, and incarnate. It is the knowable world, objectively knowable through voyages of discovery and observation. We all partake of this world and its knowledge through the vast store of accumulated collective experience. There is one world for all this. it is Nature. In Sanskrit, nature is called Prakrti. it is composed of five elements, which we characterize as earth, water, fire, air and space. consequently, the body is made up of these same five elements, which is why we also use the term prakrti for the body. We are a little piece of continual change. The most important thing we can learn about Nature is the inherent and innate laws by which it functions.
Anything physical is always changing, therefore its reality is not constant, not eternal. Nature is in this sense like an actor who has only different roles. It never takes off its costume and makeup and goes home, but just changes from one role to another, for ever and ever. So with nature we never quite know where we are, especially as we too are part of it.
