Kahlil Gibran

All things in this creation exist within you, and all things in you exist in creation; there is no border between you and the closest things, and there is no distance between you and the farthest things, and all things, from the lowest to the loftiest, from the smallest to the greatest, are within you as equal things.

In one atom are found all the elements of the earth; in one motion of the mind are found the motions of all the laws of existence; in one drop of water are found the secrets of all the endless oceans; in one aspect of you are found all the aspects of existence.

Not too long ago in my life, this would have sounded like gibberish. Reading it now, and understanding the words so deeply, makes me proud to realize how much I have learned and how much my mind has expanded. Thank you for sharing.

Why? How is this an affirmation? To what end? (I don't challenge you here, I'm just asking)

Yes. It's the "as above, so below" or "what's within is also without" (and vice versa) observation.

Ah, Kahlil - his name is so romantic - flows off the tongue.
Another one in history that had insights given through Cosmic Consciousness;
revelations of the Divine, that which is called Unseen.
Holding the world in a grain of sand...been there.
I wish it for everyone~!

Was given a copy of The Prophet about a year ago that remains dormant.

About ten years ago I had a partying buddy recite passages from it.

I really should pick it up. Like today or something.
