Certain naturally occurring shapes and forms are mysteriously pleasing to the human eye. Examples are the graceful swirl of a nautilus shell, the crystalline structures of the mineral kingdom, and the remarkable patterns found in snowflakes and flowers.
Sacred geometry is beyond religion and doctrine, yet many of its principles have been adopted by different faiths in their architecture and art. Through the centuries, architects around the world have used certain geometric ratios to build their temples, monuments and cathedrals—intended as symbolic models of the universe.
Sacred geometry merges the physical, tangible aspects of creation with the spiritual essence behind them. It is the meeting of the seen and the unseen, the manifest and the unmanifest, the finite and the infinite, the mundane and the profound. Sacred geometry has played an integral role in the philosophy, architecture and art of numerous cultures since time began.
We are a microcosmic reflection of the macrocosm. The structure of the human body is based upon the identical principles that are found functioning on all levels of creation. We are the measuring stick of the universe. This principle of interconnectedness, inseparability and union provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a blueprint from our hearts to the sacred foundation of all things created.
More simply, though, sacred geometry describes the beauty and simplicity of the world in which we live, a fundamental chorus where we harmonize our own melodies.
