A true Initiate seeking harmony and divine perfection knows that this perfection is reflected everywhere in nature, but that nowhere is it better represented than in the human body.

Everywhere else, it is dispersed: the oceans, for example, represent one part of a human body, the rivers another, the mountains and sky yet others.

Only human beings can express this beauty in its entirety, for it is in man and woman that God has summed up the whole of creation, all that exists throughout the cosmos. When this reflection is perfectly realized in a human body, Initiates contemplate it with delight, saying to themselves, ‘Here is a creature that reflects all of God’s virtues better than any other.’ But they do not dwell on this being; in contemplating it, they seek to rediscover the splendour of the Creator.
