2 - The Principle of Correspondence
As Above So Below. As Below So Above. As Within So Without. As Without So Within. This principle teaches us a functional truth. There is always correspondence between the Laws and phenomena of the various planes of existence. Energy, light, vibration and motion all have their corresponding principles. Everything on the physical plane has a corresponding principle 'out there', in the Universe.
The principle of correspondence empowers man to intelligently reason from the known to the unknown. The grasping of this truth gives one the means of solving many veiled paradoxes; many hidden secrets of nature. There are, of course, planes beyond our knowing, but when we apply the principle of correspondence to them we are able to tune into so much that would otherwise be unknowable to us. It also tells us that by studying one thing we can learn about something else. Studying the monad, man understands himself, and vice versa. The dynamics of cells are parallel to the dynamics of galaxies. One can infer the nature of distant realms from local experience.
Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. An individual that is unhappy and living in conflict with themselves will generally exhibit these negative symptoms in their behavior. Others can mask it, however, one's true feelings will eventually reveal themselves in life, and in the body. Every single thing in our lives is a mirror of what is happening within us. If you want to make your outside life better, the only lasting means to accomplish this is to change what is happening on the inside.
The masters considered this principle to be one of the most important mental instruments. According to the principle of correspondence, all of the 7 principles are in full operation on all of the many planes (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual), manifesting in all.
Teachings Reflecting The Principle of Correspondence:
While all is in THE ALL, it is equally true that THE ALL is in all
Personal Development of the Art of Correspondence:
Observe this principle in action in your everyday life. Discover how your reality reflects in agreement with, and in correspondence to you. Recognize the correspondences of your thoughts - to action - to result, and how it establishes the interconnectedness between all things, and keeps all things in this Universe relative to each other. Use this as a tool to create a more enjoyable reality for yourself by being a conscious point of attraction. Be-come the mirror.
