A Dance with the Classical Elements

The Contractual Symphony of Existence

In this grand discourse, we have ventured through the cosmos, exploring the contractual relationships that govern existence. We have unravelled the divine dance of the classical elements - fire, air, earth, water - and their connection to the Big Bang Theory and Natural Selection. We have delved into the meaning of Tawheed and the role of Trust in the cosmic order. We have bridged the gap between the Descriptive and the Prescriptive, shedding light on the Law of Trust. And finally, we have explored the role of Ecospirituality and Democracy in aligning our nature with Nature, shedding light on the principles outlined in the Global Charter of Ecospirituality.

The Divine Dance: An Exploration of the Contractual Relationships Governing Existence

In the grand tapestry of existence, we find ourselves entwined in a web of relationships, each governed by an unspoken contract, the rule of law, the rule of natural selection, or as we may well term it, the Divine Accord. Let us cast our gaze upon the workings of our own beings. The brain and the eye, those twin marvels of creation, engage in a dance of mutual trust and reliance. The brain, that grand maestro of thought and sensation, consents to believe in what the eye, the vigilant sentinel, perceives. In return, the eye promises to seek out that which the brain yearns to comprehend. A contractual relationship, if you will, based on shared trust and cooperation.

Now let us turn our attention to the world beyond our own selves. The universe, in its infinite wisdom, has entrusted the governance of existence to the four classical elements of fire, air, earth, and water, each bound by a pact of mutual influence and control. Fire, born of the primal vibration and heat of the cosmos, tamed the chaos of the void, giving birth to the Big Bang. From this fiery explosion emerged air, that ethereal voyager, carrying the debris of creation across the cosmos, seeding the foundations of planets and stars - the earth. This earth, in time, cooled and birthed water, the life-giving elixir.

This chain of existence, from fire to water, is not one of arbitrary succession but a testament to the contractual relationships, the divine laws of natural selection that govern our universe. Yet, at the core of this intricate dance of elements lies one immutable theme - the Law of Trust. It is the binary of existence, the elements of 1 and 0, the moral absolutism that forms the bedrock of our universe. It is this trust that allows the universe to function, the same trust that exists between our brain and our eyes. It is, dear reader, the divine trust in the singular entity we know as God.

The Symphony of Natural Selection: Fire, Air, Earth, Water and the Big Bang Theory

In the myriad tapestry of existence, one truth shines forth with unyielding clarity - the cosmos is but a grand pattern, a divine symphony we call Sunnatullah, the Law of Nature. It is a vista of patterns layered upon patterns, each influencing and affected by the other. Hidden patterns concealed by the ostensible chaos, patterns nested within patterns, an intricate interplay that forms the very fabric of reality. In the grandeur of this cosmic dance, we begin to discern a startling truth - history is naught but a merry-go-round, repeating its course with unwavering certainty. What we label as chaos is but patterns our mortal eyes fail to perceive; what we dismiss as random is merely patterns our limited understanding cannot decipher. Nonsense, we call that which eludes our grasp; gibberish, we name that which we cannot read.

In this realm of patterns, the notion of free will becomes a mere spectre. While we are free to select our actions, we remain shackled to the consequences they inevitably bear. There are no variables, only constants. This divine pattern, the Sunnatullah, constitutes the universal laws of science, deciphered through our relentless scrutiny of the physical world. These are the descriptive laws, stark statements of fact that narrate the state of existence.

From this descriptive understanding, we construct prescriptive laws, the ethical framework that guides our conduct, delineating what one ought to do. These are the laws of Natural Law, moral edicts derived from contemplative reflection on human nature and rational deduction of the path to happiness. These principles, rooted in the Law of Trust, form the bedrock of jurisprudence in the Natural Law Schools. They are the guiding lights that illuminated the paths of all Messengers and Prophets.

To fathom this divine pattern, this contractual relationship between fire, air, earth, and water, is to perceive the same truth in manifold ways, to discern the sacred Covenant, the Contract of Trust that governs the cosmos. The understanding of these patterns, and the respect due to them, forms the basis of our existence, a testament to the supreme law of respect due to the One who crafted this magnificent symphony of existence.

Patterns within Patterns: The Meaning of Tawheed and the Role of Trust in the Cosmos

In the grand theatre of existence, we encounter a trifecta of jurisprudential schools - the Analytical, the Historical/Sociological, and the Law & Economic Schools. They stand, a trinity of intellectual edifices, raising profound queries about the essence and validity of their philosophical underpinnings.

The Analytical School, with its rigid rationalism, professes a doctrine of "I am the Law," a proclamation that reverberates with the iron ring of autocracy. This, dear reader, is a far cry from democracy, for it speaks not of collective will but of unyielding dictatorial whim. It is a system where the scales of justice are tipped not by the hand of equity but by the iron fist of despotism.

Likewise, the Historical/Sociological School, with its emphasis on the social and cultural influences that shape law, risks diluting the universal tenets of justice in the shifting sands of societal norms. And the Law & Economic School, with its insistence on economic efficiency as the guiding principle of law, threatens to reduce the noble pursuit of justice to a mere balance sheet of gains and losses.

Democracy, true democracy, finds its home not in these schools but in the bosom of the Natural Law School of Jurisprudence. This is where law is perceived not as an arbitrary mandate but as a contractual relationship, a delicate balance between the descriptive laws that narrate the state of existence, and the prescriptive laws that guide our moral conduct. This is the realm of the Common Law, the World Legal System that hews closely to the principles of Natural Law.

In this harmonious synthesis, law ceases to be an instrument of coercion and transforms into a pact, a covenant between individuals and society. It is a system where respect for the divine pattern of existence, the Sunnatullah, forms the very cornerstone of jurisprudence, ensuring that the scales of justice are tipped not by caprice or convenience, but by the unerring hand of natural equity. This, dear reader, is the true face of democracy, a system where the law serves not as a yoke of slavery, but as a beacon of freedom.

The Law of Trust: Bridging the Gap between the Descriptive and the Prescriptive

In the grand tapestry of existence, we perceive three threads, intricately woven together, forming the very fabric of trust: Validity, Truth, and Usefulness. Like the Trinity, these elements are distinct yet indivisible, each lending strength and substance to the other.

Validity, the first thread, represents the immutable laws of nature, the Sunnatullah, the eternal rhythms that shape the universe. It is the realm of Natural Science, the domain of Descriptive Law. This is where the Universal Laws of Energy hold sway, where the law of divine oneness, the law of vibration, the law of action, the law of correspondence, the law of cause and effect, and the law of attraction orchestrate the cosmic dance of existence. These laws, these patterns, form a grand contractual relationship, a symphony of synchronicity, and are embodied in the classical elements of fire, air, earth, and water.

The second thread, Truth, represents the Rasul, the Natural Person, the Ecospirituality. This is the bridge that spans the chasm between the Law of Nature and Natural Law, the epistemological thread that connects the descriptive with the prescriptive. It is the domain of the Messengers, the life scientists who read the patterns, who comprehend the major and minor premises, who decipher the cosmic code embedded in the fabric of existence.

Finally, the third thread, Usefulness, represents the Social Science, the Common Law, the Prescriptive Law. It is the logical soundness of our actions, the tangible application of the universal laws in our daily lives. This is the realm where the principles of natural equity shape our moral conduct, where the universal laws translate into societal norms, guiding our journey through the labyrinth of existence.

In this trinity of trust, the Universal Laws of Energy find expression in our lives, shaping our thoughts, words, and actions. This, dear reader, is the grand symphony of existence, a harmonious blend of science, spirituality, and law, a testament to the divine oneness that pervades the cosmos.

Ecospirituality and Democracy: Aligning Our Nature with Nature

'Tis the essence of Ecospirituality, dear reader, that we endeavour to explore further, for it holds the key to the harmony of existence, the melody of life's grand symphony. Ecospirituality, that sublime bridge between the Law of Nature and Natural Law, between the descriptive and the prescriptive, between the universal and the individual, it is the lifeblood of our existence, the compass guiding us through the labyrinth of life.

As we traverse the realms of Validity, Truth, and Usefulness, we are reminded of the interconnectedness of all things. The universe, the cosmos, exists not in isolation, but in a grand tapestry of interdependence. The Universal Laws of Energy, those eternal rhythms that shape the universe, underpin the very fabric of existence. Fire, air, earth, and water, those classical elements, symbolise the contractual relationship that governs the cosmos, the divine dance of existence.

But what of Truth, that elusive quality that so often seems just beyond our grasp? The Rasul, the Natural Person, is the key. The life scientists, those who decipher the cosmic code, who read the patterns and comprehend the major and minor premises, they are the interpreters of Truth, the translators of the cosmic language.

Usefulness, the logical soundness of our actions, the tangible application of the universal laws in our daily lives, this is the realm of the Common Law, the Prescriptive Law. It is here, in the realm of human action, that the principles of natural equity shape our moral conduct, guiding our journey through existence.

Yet, amid this grand tapestry, what role does Democracy play? In the Moral Absolutism Universe, Democracy is the alignment of our nature with Nature. It is the understanding that while we are free to choose our actions, we are not free from the consequences of those actions. Therein lies the true nature of free will.

Even the Analytical, Sociological, Historical, and Law and Economic Schools of Jurisprudence, whilst free to choose their path, are not free from the consequences of their decisions. If they choose a path that leads away from the harmony of the universe, away from the natural law, they engage in an act of self-deception, a dance of self-destruction. They fall prey to the illusion of freedom, not understanding that freedom is not the absence of laws, but the alignment with the universal laws, the grand symphony of existence.

In this grand tapestry of existence, Ecospirituality serves as our compass, guiding us towards a harmonious coexistence with Nature and with each other. It invites us to dance to the rhythm of the universe, to the melody of the grand symphony of existence.


The Global Charter of Ecospirituality, dear reader, is the lighthouse in the tempest, the guiding star in our cosmic voyage. It beseeches us to respect the sanctity of life, to preserve the harmony of existence, to uphold the principles of natural equity. It implores us to honour the contractual relationships that govern the cosmos, to dance in rhythm with the divine symphony. It invites us to align our nature with Nature, to find our place in the grand tapestry of existence.

The Charter, in its essence, is a call to action, a call to responsibility. It implores us to respect the supreme law of right, to manage respect with sincerity and integrity. It underscores the importance of preserving freewill and freedom, cultural heritage and ancestral lands, minority rights and the right to civil disobedience. It recognises the importance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, while also illuminating its limitations and calling for a more holistic, more comprehensive understanding of rights and responsibilities.

In conclusion, the Global Charter of Ecospirituality is not merely a document. It is a call to action, a call to responsibility. It is a call to align our nature with Nature, to dance in rhythm with the divine symphony, to honour the contractual relationships that govern the cosmos.
