In the Book of Proverbs we find the statement that “the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord.” Geoffrey Hodson says that there is a close similarity between the processes by which the powers in the cosmos and the powers in man become manifest and evolve. Occult teachings speak of an extraordinary system of continually interacting mutual resonances between the universe and the human being. The German philosopher Goethe seemed to echo this truth with this somewhat cryptic statement: “The eye could not see the sun if it did not contain the sun within itself.” Knowledge of these correspondences provides a key to understanding both the universe and humanity’s place in that vast system. 1971. 37 minutes.
