my face reflected

I see my face reflected
in the heights of the towering skies
as in the tiny morning dew.

“As above, so below”, from the Emerald Tablet of Trismegistus, refers to the idea that the microcosm reflects the macrocosm, that smaller systems, particularly the human body is a miniature version of the larger universe.
By understanding the smaller systems, therefore, we can understand the larger, and vice versa.

This also reflects the idea of the universe being composed of multiple realms (such as the physical and the spiritual) and that things that happen in one reflect upon the other.
