As above, so also below

Written by 

In our circles, we say, "As above, so also below."  This statement comes from the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, in which the text originally reads, "Truth! Certainty! That in which there is no doubt!  That which is above is from that which is below, and that which is below is from that which is above, working the miracles of one. As all things were from one."

I have always loved that part of our ritual, where we affirm our unity with all, where we affirm that we are the Universe, and the Universe is us.  When I find visual representations of it, I am always amazed and excited to see more evidence of this ancient truth.
