The whole universe being full with the glorious essence of God, it is the mind which revolves with the spheres of the worlds on itself, like ripples on the surface of waters.

As moving sands appear like water and as distant smoke seems like gathering clouds to the deluded, so this world appears to them as a gross object of creation, a third thing beside Divine Spirit and mind.

Common understanding is ready to attribute choice, the predicates "I" and "you" and so forth to the original and prime Intellect, but none of these is separate from the Supreme One, just as fluid is no other than water itself.
