Remember my previous post about personal elements? Well since then, my element spread has changed, mainly since I realize Ego and Chaos should not be considered elements, let alone personal elements. So the four elements are as follows:
Fire, Earth, Sun, and Id
Fire is the same as I previously described it, so is Earth. Id still refers to carnal energy.
Sun is like Light with a more fire edge, and it’s not Sun. Basically not the same as the generic Light principle. It’s the hot light of the bright sun.
This might just be me, but when I think chocolate, particularly chocolate cakes and chocolate, I think of not just delicious succulent glory, but also of things related to earth, as well as rainforests and sometimes magma and volcanoes. Sometimes gluttony comes to mind, and sometimes when I think of gluttony I think of the god Kubera/Vaisravana (though he was a god of wealth, not gluttony; Kubera just comes up). Sometimes, in relation to earthly things, I think of titans.
I don’t know why these thoughts go through my mind sometimes. Maybe I’m just reminded of particularly earthly things.
Remember the very first post I made? It contains poetic language pertaining to what I consider to be elements of my soul. Just for kicks, I feel like expanding on it, talking more in depth. By the way, this has nothing to do with astrology, which I do not believe in.
This one should be a no-brainer, right? Fire’s all over this site, to the point I’m surprised I don’t talk about it very often here. Maybe I will. I might have wanted to stay away from it earlier due to what I saw as its primarily destructive nature, but deep down I realized, fire kicks ass, and it’s in me. Think: heat, intense energy, wilderness, passion, anger, these are things that fire embodies and I have. Recently, in my philosophy and spiritual philosophy, I am developing the concept of a subterranean/chthonic flame within us, which I will discuss
Earth to me pictures both jungles, plants, dirt, energies of the earth, and lava and volcanic force. After all, lava, or magma, is merely the blood of the earth, the chthonic and inner fire of the planet, of all planets. Where fire is mostly passion, emotion, and anger, earth is much more sensual. The earthly delights I dream of.
Light to me has heat, but also to me connontates brilliance, radiance, summer heat (which I love, especially in the city), and brighter human qualities. It is human brilliance, and divine.
Id (Carnal Darkness)
Remember when I said darkness was part of the mix? Well I see two kinds of darkness. The carnal, sensual, edgy darkness, and I the empty, nihilistic, desolate darkness. I prefer the former dark: carnal, sensual, sexual, lust, sin (in a religious context), demons and devils, arousal, and, for some reason, the pagan. It is also a serpentine darkness. Like earth, it’s about pleasure. Though some would say it has less to do with darkness per say, and more to do with carnality, sin, and desire, though I just call it dark, because I like it. I dislike the nihlism, emptiness, wallowing, sadism, of the other darkness.
Chaos (or more or less my love of it)
Chaos, as I’ve discussed before, chaos is the primal element, matter, substance. To me it screams power and primal. Mainly, it’s my love of chaos that allows me to individualize this. Chaos is also an image, an idea, that inspires so much in me, including how I think.
Believe it or not, ego is not a problem for me, given that I value self, and selfhood. Ego often translates to self, but most people refer to self, and I consider ego as a deeper understanding of self, something of energy. It has such power. But be careful. Try not to be blind to your ego or lose yourself to it. Be aware of ego, and ensure that you do not lose yourself to it, or it will lose its glory and its lustre.
Hello. I am a thoughtful, creative, and rebellious person, and my desires burn like great flames inside me, or like magma flowing through my body. I value freedom, power, individuality, justice, and selfhood. Poetically speaking, my soul is made of six elements: fire, light, darkness, earth, chaos, and ego. My philosophy is trust in yourself and whatever values you have. Listen to others if you want, but never trust them completely unless it connects with you. I like to talk about video games, religion, mythology, sometimes current events, things that pertain to my self, and society. And I also like girls. So feel free to listen to my thoughts born from the raw elements of my soul.
