The one who tunes himself not only to the external but to the inner being and to the essence of all things gets an insight into the essence of the whole being, and therefore he can to the same extent find and enjoy even in the seed the fragrance and beauty which delight him in a rose. He so to speak touches the soul of the thought.It is just as by seeing the plant one may get an idea of the root. And in this way things unknown are known and things unseen are percieved by the
mystic, and he calls it revelation.
