Man as Reflector of the Cosmos

“In a great many mystical heritages and religions we find the analogy that man is a reflector of the cosmos and everything that is percievable outside lies dormant within man, and that life on earth unfolds until that point when one percieves and hears completely the echo of total creation within oneself.  This is the ulitimate gift that will bring contentment and satisfaction to the heart of man.  No material, physical, intellectual achievement will bring that self containment and self contentment with its true and voluntary submission to Reality in its totality.” 

-Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
