The 5 elements - Earth Water Fire Air Space - gather into the mind of white appearance
This mandala is a representation of this process
A process that occurs every time we go to sleep
And also when we die.
The elements gather sequentially, with differing appearances to mind
The dissolution of the 5 elements
Occurs in the following sequence
First - Earth
Second - Water
Third - Fire
Fourth - Air
Fifth - Space
We can develop awareness of the 5 elements as they gather at the heart chakra through the practice of meditation, which in turn empowers our awareness into the subtle realm of sleep, and death.
A protocol that will be of great value in the future, for sleep is inevitable, as is death.
For those who are interested in the concept of rebirth
This representation of absorbing the 5 elements might stimulate an enquiring mind, simply through imagining this process.
This dissolution occurs within your heart chakra, every time you fall asleep, and also when you die, so perhaps some familiarity might serve you well.
