The eternal Monad has no connection to you as you are a small part of the whole. The total of everything is the Monad.
We see everything as objects mentally , even in the astral dimension. An object is a form and that form is made of the Monad. The Monad is the total nature hidden behind the form. Forms or images are called the Demiurge. From Sufi metaphysics, the image you see in a mirror is the demiurge and the mirror itself is the Monad. A Mirror can have many reflections but none are the mirror itself.
