We Are In This Universe; The Universe Is In Us
We know that we are in the universe through our mind. But when we realize that we are the universe and universe is in us through our Self that is known Self Realization. The concept of universe in us is nothing new. This universal truth has been revealed from more than 10,500 BC by our Ancient Sages, Yogis, and Siddhas to our modern-day Philosophers, Poets and Physicists. Theories like Holographic universal field theory also express the same fact. I have given below some of their quotes relevant to this…
“As in Micro, so in Macro. The whole exists within the minutest particle and the minutest particle contains the whole. The atom contains the universe and the universe contains the atom, and neither exists without the other. Creator exists within creation, even as creation exists within creator.” ~ Brahmarishi Mayan, 10,500 BC
In the Siddha system of medicine, man is viewed as a microcosm and the universe as a macrocosm. In other words, man is a miniature universe in himself. Our great Siddha Agasthiyar and other Siddhas realized and wrote about Andam Pindam Theory, quoting in Tamil
“Andathil ullathe pindam, Pindathil ullathe Andam, Andamum Pindamum ondre, Aarinthu thaan parkum pothey.” ~ Sattamuni Gnanam
This means, what is there in the external cosmos existing within this body and the vice versa, both are one and the same when one realizes Thy self. Our body is a miniature cosmos all that is content in the universe/cosmos is contained in it as well. Microcosm and macrocosm are two aspects of a theory developed by Siddhas to describe human beings and their place in the universe. Man is said to be the Microcosm and world the macrocosm. This theory proves that what exists in the world is also exists in man.
“Heart is merely another name for the Supreme Spirit, because He is in all hearts. The entire Universe is condensed in the body, and the entire body in the Heart. Thus the Heart is the nucleus of the whole Universe.” ~ Sri Ramana Maharshi
“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
“You Are The Universe, Expressing Itself As A Human For A Little While.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
“You are the universe experiencing itself” ~ Alan Watts
“You are not just the drop in the ocean. You are the mighty ocean in the drop.” ~ Rumi.
“We are part of this universe, We are in this universe, The universe is in us, Yes, the universe is in us” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson, American astrophysicist
This video of detailed universe will just give a glimpse of it…
“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”~ Albert Einstein
Hope we all learned something useful in 2012 and looking forward to learn more in 2013. Welcoming New Year with you all with better understanding, love, peace and harmony… 🙂
