A REFLECTION FROM ABOVE
The reflection on those people on the roof made me think of a famous quote from the “Kybalion” an ancient Greek book of Wisdom: “As above, so below”.
Those people were walking and looking down or in front of them. They didn’t pay attention to their reflections- above. Symbolically, above would be this part of the real which is “invisible to the eyes”… a superior state of consciousness, too high, too pure, too elevated for us to be conscious of. Below is the part of the real where we evolve, where we see. It’s a more material, emotional and intellectual level.
I believe the great question to be “Which is the reflection of which?”.
A so-called materialistic person, would say that the “above” is a projection of the real, a kind of fantasy. But a so-called spiritual person would say that “below” is the manifestation in the visible of those archetypes, ideas and concepts which exist in those higher levels of reality.
So what would it be? Read the Kybalion, think… and follow your intuition. The answer is already here, in the depth of your heart.
