As Above! So Below!
This is the phrase i often hear and read when i was still working on my path to find my spirituality and it still true to me right now. This phrase also teach us about the universe and the soul. Indeed this is a deep teaching that when you will understand it, you will treasure it most.
Many people think of God that lives in a far away place which is known as Heaven; and this heaven when look up by human eyes can be seen as a place beyond the sky.; And beyond that sky we can find the galaxies and the universe as we say. This Universe that we speak of contains galaxies stars and planets which we see as part of the beautiful creation of the Divine. And beyond that is the infinite Glory of our creator.
To some people who search for Divinity, have described the Universe as a consolidation of the Divinity of which that from all galaxies, stars and planet, this Divinity is manifested. As a manifested form, it convey ideas and messages that it is alive. It communicate to us of its existence. As the concept or reality of the Universe that can be seen above beyond the sky, it also have a mirroring reflection to us here which dwells below the sky. As there are galaxies, stars and planets; in our planet there are continents, countries and islands where human existence dwells. Even in Human being within us, this embodiment of the universe can also be seen, so as it is Above, so as it is below.
As we have said that the Universe is constantly communicating with us all, we have made a discussion video on how the Universe communicates to us which you can see below:
In this video we have mentioned that the Universe communicate to us not through words or languages that we usually speak, but the Universe communicates to us through signs, symbols, actions and vibrations. And for us as Human, the universe understand us not through the effectiveness of our speech or writing, but the universe understand us through our action that is produced by our emotion. Our Emotion is a response action that can be felt by our body that is created within our mind; and our mind is not seen in our body as it is part of the Spirit; and this Spirit is the one that animates of give life to the Universe. As Humans speaks differently from the Animals so as the Universe speaks differently from humans and all other beings. Like how we communicate with our pets such as dog and cat, we can not hear them speak or use the language we use in communication, but they emit sounds and do action to show of their emotions and their mind.
It is the same thing that when we communicate with the Divinity or the Spirit which is the Universe is its embodiment, we communicate not through words but through the vibrations of our emotions. This is the same reason why indigenous spirituality and religion use sounds such as drums, horn trumpet, bells and other musical instrument in their rituals and ceremonies. Together with the sound of music, they also move their body and stamp their feet to the ground in dancing to express their emotions to the universe.
In communicating with the Divinity, you do not need to earn a diploma or degree of initiation to come closer to them. All you need to have is to open up your self to the Divinity and start communicating. In communication, you have to remember that it is an exchange of idea that there must be a message, sender and receiver. And in return you must also receive a response in order for understanding to come up in your life.
