Jakob Böhme, “Centrum Naturae”
“Your blog is amazing. I’d like to ask, where did the name of your blog come from? I know of a few songs that I love with the same title.”
“‘That which is above is the same as that which is below’…Macrocosmos is the same as microcosmos. The universe is the same as God, God is the same as man, man is the same as the cell, the cell is the same as the atom, the atom is the same as…and so on, ad infinitum.”
‘That which is above is the same as that which is below’ is an ancient maxim derived from the Emerald Tablet, or the Tabula Smaragdina (The Secret of Hermes), the foundation of the Hermetic tradition, and the formula behind all systems of magic. It reveals that everything is connected, where one action occurs it is reflected in the other. As Within, So Without.
“We are in the cosmos and the cosmos is in us.” — Matthew Fox
