Nature and emotion are more similar than you’d think

When we speak of love, why do we think of a flame? Is it a coincidence that Zeus lived on a mountain, while Gaia represented mother earth? Our world is complex, but understanding is well within our grasp. The 5 Elements teach us how to describe and understand everything from the simplicity of a grain of sand, to the complexity of our emotions.

The Wood Element

Wood

In its simplest of terms, Mù – the Wood element represents Wood and Spring, the East, Birth and Growth. But we find that just as the wood element can describe a season, direction and phase, it too can be used to describe the colour green, a sour taste or a rancid smell. Looking deeper, we discover that wood represents the anger, or refusal to yield of a baby chick as it breaks out of its shell, and equally the grand expression and release of energy from a crowd of protesters as they shape the world. Join us as we unlock the wide range of emotions and behaviours in Ming Man’s series on The Wood Element.

Fire

Fire, blazing and burning bright, engulfing entire landscapes in a single breath can begin and end with a single tiny flame atop a candle. Huŏ – the fire element, in all of it’s glory, can be use to describe the colour red, the south, the sound of laughter, and many other things in the world around us. But, within us, it’s expression can span a range of emotions and behaviours from the joy and wonder of new-found love to the unspoken shyness of the new kid in school. Join us to uncover the awe inspiring Fire element.

Metal

Bullets, diamonds, skyscrapers, ghosts. What do they have in common? A key characteristics of the Metal element is a refusal to let go — a refusal based on the idea of “forever”. The bullet was designed to be targeted, focussed, precise — to make permanent changes. Diamonds are cold, hard, and precise, yet their elegance and beauty reminds us of the eternal bonds we forge with one another. We see skyscrapers as rigid, permanent structures of steel, stone and glass. Their permanency so ingrained in us that when they fall, we take pause. Ghosts are the ultimate example of forever — described as the spirits of those who have refused to move on, they embody both the spiritual aspect of metal as well as its issues with eternity. Join us as we explore Jīn – The Metal Element in our world, emotions and behaviour.
