|The third excerpt represents the element of Water. It speaks of pure spiritual influences and feelings of love, and is drawn from The Phoenix and the Turtle by William Shakespeare:
Hearts remote, yet not asunder;
Distance, and no space was seen
'Twixt the turtle and his queen;
But in them it were a wonder.
So between them love did shine,
That the turtle saw his right
Flaming in the phoenix' sight:
Either was the other's mine.
Property was thus appall'd,
That the self was not the same;
Single nature's double name
|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 King James Bible:
MAT 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that
shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
MAT 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what
ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
MAT 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to
kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul
and body in hell.
MAT 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them
shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
MAT 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
MAT 10:31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many
King James Bible
