Today’s Insight comes from A Traveler’s Guide to The Well Worn Path by Raven Grimassi and Stephanie Taylor.
As Above, So Below
“This concept has to do with mirroring. What has shown up in your life is a reflection of your beliefs, thoughts, words, and deeds. The concept of mirroring speaks directly about reflections that arive from cause and effect. Look at the cycles and patterns in your life, and see them as mirrors of your connection to the higher realms. It is time to look clearly at your life (beginning from within). By bringing any distortion into focus more clearly you can better understand your perception of the things around you.”
A Foundational Teaching
“There is an old saying that what people see as tragedy the gods see merely as divine play. Sometimes we feel that we are being subjected to unfairness, injustice, and victimization. At the time itis difficult for us to see that these feelings are our misunderstanding of the energy coming into our lives that is intended to help with our spiritual evolution. Therefore, what we perceive as reality is actually our distorted view of something clouded by our emotions, and is therefore beyond our immediate discernment.”
“That which is above is as that which is below. That which is within, is as that which is without.”
“This means that the material plane and the nonmaterial plane of existence reflect one another according to the nature of their energy. The material realm is like looking through frosted glass at what appears to be distorted on the other side. The image there appears to us like a pattern instead of the true form. Therefore we see only that which is suggestive of the reality beyond our full comprehension.”
Truly, the world above reflects the world below. The life we’re living today is past, present, and future at the same time. There is an interconnection between other worlds and ours. Reflect today upon what living within means to you in accordance to the laws of nature and spirit. It becomes obvious that the life we’re living, the words we’re talking, and the actions we are doing – becomes that which who we are – the inside and outside are indeed connected. The life you choose to live becomes the energy you radiate.
