which, moving the air, has banished diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and the stars,
which have given us their light when the sun was gone.

in whom is embodied all goodness,

pure water forms pure ice - dirty water forms dirty ice.
Consider how much easier it is to purify water before it freezes

before they manifest into physical reality,
than to try to cut the cancerous impurities from solid reality
after you have manifested your thoughts into physical form.
