In the Universe occur the most wonderful and incredible phenomena that we can imagine. When we look at the sky on a winter night between snowy mountains and marvel at the immensity, we see those bright little lights that twinkle before us billions of miles away, the stars. And if we pay more attention to what is not seen with the naked eye, we will realize that there is an empty space between them, a deep eternal silence that contains everything up to where you are and that is even bigger and immense than all the celestial bodies. It is the Ether, the space where matter exists and that makes life possible. It is there and has always been there since the Universe was created.
It is the air you breathe, the one that separates you from the objects that you touch, the space between you and me… it is everywhere and is part of Everything. The ancient alchemists also called it the “fifth element” of nature or the “quintessence.”
Because since we were children we have all felt connected with that “world soul”. The place where dreams and fantasy emanate. It is that part of the Cosmos not visible to our eyes where all its true essence and beauty resides.
The sages and poets say that when we arrive in this world the memory of this magical place is still alive in us and that is why children are pure creativity and joy of living.
