As Below, So Above

You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.

They say, as above, so below. Do you know what this implies? Can you imagine that our entire destiny is written in the stars? You must have noticed yourself that there are periods when walking is as hard as if concrete is tied to your feet. While on others, pretty much no matter what you do, everything falls into your lap easily. All these up and down phases are written in the stars, and a skilled astrologer can tell you about it in your charts.

Who knows whether we have a choice in what we do or not. Who knows what exactly in our lives is predetermined and what is not. But if the 'as above, so below' statement is correct then it is hard to imagine that our willpower can change the trajectory of stars. Yet, within a written life-story there is probably a high degree of freedom what you can do with it.

The upside of 'as above, so below' is information. If we are operating in a hologram, all the information above must be at our disposal below. So all we ever need to know slumbers deep inside of us. Just as Rumi says, we are the entire ocean in a drop.
