Words of wisdom from Hildegard of Bingen

I am repeating this from my other journal. It’s too good to not further share.

This is from Hildegard’s letter to the Mainz prelates:
In these words outer realities teach us about inner ones — namely how, in accordance with the material composition and quality of instruments, we can best transform and shape the performance of our inner being towards praises of the Creator.

Yes, mysticism and esotericism are very much inner practices. However, in the alchemical spirit of “As above, so below,” what one experiences on the inside does (and should!) manifest on the outside.
