Rest in Being and trust in God. Live inwardly and trust in God.
Rejoice in Being and in the inward, and trust in God.
Rest in Being: not in doing, not in change.
Live inwardly, not outwardly, not in forms.
Rejoice in Being and in the inward: not in doing and in the outward.
Or again: the harmony between consciousness of Being and inwardness is joy.
Breathing out symbolizes consciousness of Being, breathing in symbolizes inwardness.
'Transfiguration of Man'
By Frithjof Schuon (Author)
The image of humanity presented by modern psychology is not only fragmentary but misleading. In reality to be human means to be as if suspended between animality and divinity but modern thought - whether philosophical or scientific - admits only of animality practically speaking. Traditional wisdom corrects and perfects the image of man by insisting on his divinity not by making a god of him but rather by taking account of his true nature which surpasses the terrestrial and without which there would be no reason for his existence. It is this that can be called - symbolically speaking - the transfiguration of man.
