Many today are interested in reflexology. The whole system of the organism, the body, is reflected in the sole of the foot and in the palm of the hand, and also in the eyes (iridology). Nature's method is everywhere, putting the whole into all the parts. Each part represents — makes present — the whole. That leads us to the understanding of the human being as a microcosm, a little world. The whole universe is present in each one of us. We are a little world in ourselves, and the whole world is mirrored in each particular part. This is the view which is gradually coming through to me.
