Symbols of the inner
spiritual reality occur throughout the physical universe. There are
symbols in nature and the things made from natural materials; there are
also dream symbols and religious symbols found in sacred scriptures. Understanding such symbols can
bring great wisdom.
Consider the expression
on someone's face. Sometimes what we see becomes almost a mirror of
the inner spiritual reality in that person. Perhaps the person is inwardly
amused, so the face tends to correspond to the feeling with a smile. This
creates an image, sign or symbol which is universally understood. For an introduction to
