Let Go of Control.
The space element is very light, refined, and goes beyond and above everything, you cannot touch it, you cannot smell it, it’s always there. Once we have enough space element, we will have space for all other elements.
Space is also allowing us to look beyond and above our ordinary experience and our ordinary reality. We can go to the states of mind which move us beyond thoughts, beyond emotions, beyond attachment to the current reality.
By creating space in our meditation practice, we open up to the vast view of life, and we merge with the higher states of consciousness.
When we do not have enough elements of space, everything that appears in our life seems solid and real, small problems can be devastating.
When we have too little space, it’s easier for one element to dominate the others. So, we can be either too aggressive, fiery, or too stubborn, and afraid of change, or too emotional.
When we are too much in the element of space, we feel “spacy”, that space is not an integration, it’s losing connection to the other elements. We might feel dizzy, disconnected from reality, out in the clouds, and have a hard time creating a fulfilling life in our reality.
When the space element is balanced in us, there is room in life, whatever arises can move through us. We are not so attached to things, people, and circumstances, we can connect with our higher self and higher guides, as well as experience higher states of consciousness.
