. The fundamental key, “as above, so below, as within, so without,” helps you understand there is a Universe within just as there is a Universe without. Even without this understanding, you probably think there is some place, other than Earth – a place where people and/or their spirit-souls exist before “birth” and after “death.” Both of the sentences before this one, contain logic that comes almost entirely from what other humans think.
Before this logic existed, you had to base your logic on your own observations and experiences.
And so now you return to the time of your beginnings.
When you look beyond treetops and mountaintops into the Sky and see lights of different types, day and night, you know you are inside something much larger.
When you see female animals of different types, expand and life come out of them, you know there is something inside great and powerful.
When you see seeds go into Earth and come out transformed into an endless variety of plants, you know there is something going on similar to the coming forth of life through the female.
There you are on Earth, observing these births and you know they share similarities and are all connected. You know these images and experiences are expressing the same thing.
So now, after observing these repeating cycles in the Sky, female and Earth, you realize the overall result of these things is in support of life and its continuation after this life. Right now, you have gone back and fetched confirmation of what you have been taught, and you are still not finished.
You are still back in the days where more of us understood the sources and process of understanding.
The more you understand, the less you fear, if you ever feared at all.
You realize more and more that it is not possible to increase in understanding and in fear. It is one or the other. You don't fear things moving through the Sky or falling towards Earth.
You continue to get more information, more understanding.
You see the diversity in the Sky, coming out of females, coming out of Earth and you know there is an interrelatedness to all of this.
You see the growth and development of things. You look at yourself and you know there are things going on inside you. You see the life cycle of humans, other animals, insects and plants. You observe more changes on Earth and in Sky.
You see water coming from the Sky, from your eyes and skin and from Earth.
You see so many more things happening which continues to bring certainty that all these repetitions are connected and occurring in layers.
You see the concentric circles in water and trees and you see colorful arcs in the Sky.
As the number of cycles you observe and experience increase, information begins to fit more and more and you get an even stronger sense that the understanding of all things is connected to understanding of self.
You keep observing and experiencing the smaller and larger and details and bigger picture of the repeated motions. You understand that what goes around comes around and you reap what you sow and if you make your bed hard, you have to lie in it.
You see the patterns of human behavior.
You see the tendency to take the prosperity of the given for granted. This leads away from the quest for understanding and towards the quest for more prosperity. However, due to moving away from what you've learned by observing, experiencing and questioning, momentum shifts towards disparity.
You extract and translate principles from all the patterns you have observed and experienced.
You see that as above, so below, as within, so without. Once again, right now, you have gone back and fetched confirmation of what you have been taught. And you are still not finished.
You have a lot of understandings, but due to the oneness of all, you simplify all into one: Know yourself.
And now here you are back in today's time. You know more about Earth, Sky and Universe.
Since the fundamental principles have not changed., you know there is a Universe within and without.
"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)
“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”
