Element of Air
Nothing lives without air. Like air, Justice cannot be seen, but its effects are profoundly felt; its consequences paramount.
Element of Water
Flowing, persistent, wearing; the three ingredients of seeking truths. To all men, water is like truth. Seek with diligence for it, lest all men thirst for it, even to death.
Element of Earth
All things require a medium in which to grow. Men only grow in the soils of reason, knowledge, logic and truth, watered with the rains of goodwill.
Element of Fire
The centre of man’s forge. Within the forge his metal is tempered and the brands to sear his flesh are heated. More here than just his metal is tempered in the fire and smoke of his existence: for here he cooks his food and warms his bones; he burns his hand and fashions his tools.
With Law, temper well: it will carve you a pathway to Justice. Hammer with care and weld together with honour; to be tested, not strained, and never, never, ignored or wasted.
