[1 of 2] Anonymous (3000 BC-current, World): primary subject "As above so below" (search under Inner Life/Teachings)": detail "From ‘Odes of Solomon’, Ode 34 (c. 100 A.D.)"
 There is no hard way where there is a simple heart,
 Nor barrier for upright thoughts,
 Nor whirlwind in the depth of the enlightened thought.
 
 Where one is surrounded entirely by pleasing country,
 There is nothing divided in him.
 
 The likeness of that which is below
 Is that which is above.
 For everything is from above,
 And from below there is nothing,
 But it is considered to be by those in whom there is no understanding.
 
 Grace has been revealed for your salvation.
 Believe and live and be saved. Hallelujah.

Energy comes from above, not below—everything is in that.
