As Above, So Below


inspiration, Photography, Thoughts / Monday, June 4th, 2012

Ever heard the phrase “As above, so below?”  I often think of it as the polarity we experience in life.  That which exists in the heavens is reflected here on Earth…within every woman there is also an inner man…or that which exists within will be the experience of outer life.  There are many ways to think of it, yet we need only look to nature for real representations of esoteric concepts.

In this photo, everything in the above world has been reflected in the below world with no distortion of the image.  If we were to jump into the waters and thrash about, we would disrupt the pure reflection and lose sight of the connection between the two worlds.  When life gets stressful, what do you do to stay calm and keep from thrashing about?

Like many of my photos, this was taken at Morton Arboretum in Lisle IL.
