As within, so without.
All that happens outside of us, happens within us. Changes in the higher planes affect the lower. Changes in us, manifest around us.
That we are reflections in micro/macrocosm of the source. That the reality around us is a reflection of that which creates it. To me it is a reminder of what we are.
so as magic comes within us it comes out to change what’s around.
Absolutely. Also, I interpret that half of the maxiom to also mean that everything around us is also a part of us, and vice versa.
Yes. I also think it is a subtle suggestion from the wise folks who wrote the principle that when we are doing magick, approach it with the mindset that there is no distinction between making a change within yourself and externally changing things. It kind of holds true in the literal sense; everything that happens everywhere is ultimately relevant to your own existence, both in butterfly effect and string theory. It is theoretically impossible for anything to occur without it having some intrinsic effect on everything else that exists on that plane, both in the astral and in physicality.

In Godlike power and boldness
it means that creation is fractal(everything is connected and every single part no matter how small has the potential to create/recreate everything). What happens in the microverse is reflected in the macro and vice versa, this also applying to this dimension reflecting on others
