"Man is God’s astrolabe, and just as by means of an astrolabe the astronomer discovers the condition of the celestial spheres and observes the motions and influences of the stars, so when Man has received from God the gift of self-knowledge, he continually beholds the manifestations of the Divine Beauty, which is without attribute and beyond description by means of the astrolabe of his existence, which is a Divine Mirror wherein that Beauty never ceases to be displayed." Rumi
