The universe has been created out of knowledge and action and seems also possessed of consciousness.
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
You may control a mad elephant; You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger; Ride the lion and play with the cobra; By alchemy you may earn your livelihood; You may wander through the universe incognito; Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful; You may walk on water and live in fire; But control of the mind is better and more difficult.

Each man is a microcosm of the universe. Your body is made of all the elements of the world. Nature supplied all the ingredients that make your body, which means that the universe made you by donating itself.

If you seek to understand the whole universe you will understand nothing at all but seek to understand yourself and you will understand the whole universe.
