As above, so below.
Above and below are arbitrary terms. Relative terms. Dualistic terms.
No such separation exists except in thinking it so.
Male and female are two different ways of looking at the same underlying unity. Neither is truly superior to the other except that the grain runs from the female to the male. Man comes out of woman. Woman does not come out of man.
To rebel against this natural order is to join Sisyphus in his eternal trek up the hill to fetch a pail of water only to tumble down again spilling the water while Jill comes tumbling after.
In a mirror everything is backasswards. In the nondualistic sense there is no mirror. There is no Bodhi tree. Only Mind is. (The word Mind being only a placeholder for that which cannot be named). The tao that can be named is not the eternal Tao. Mind cannot see itself. It can only be itself. When we look for ourSelves we divide ourSelves into separate selves. No such separate self exists.
From the first nothing is. No thing is. No separate thing is.
