As pure water poured into pure water becomes the very same, so does the Self of the illumined man or woman verily become one with the godhead.

Even as birds, O beloved, return to their tree for rest,
thus all things find their rest in Atman, the Supreme Spirit.
All things find their final peace in their inmost Self, the Spirit.

We are like the spider.
We weave our life and then move along in it.
We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives in the dream.
This is true for the entire universe.

Even as fire finds peace
in its resting place without fuel,
when thoughts become silent,
the soul finds peace in its own source.

When the mind is silent,
then it can enter into a world
which is far beyond the mind.

When a wise man has withdrawn his mind
from all things without, and when
his spirit has peacefully left all inner sensations'
let him rest in peace, free from the movement of will and desire. ...
For it has been said:
There is something beyond our mind
which abides in silence within our mind.
It is the supreme mystery beyond thought.
Let one's mind and subtle spirit rest upon that and nothing else.

When the mind is silent, beyond weakness and distraction,
then it can enter into a world which is far beyond the mind:
the supreme Destination. ...
Then one knows the joy of Eternity.

~ Maitri Upanishad, VI.19-23

Each wave in the brain that says "I" and "mine" immediately puts a chain around us and makes us slaves, and the more we say "I" and "mine" more our slavery, the greater our misery. Therefore, the Karma-yoga advises us to enjoy the beauty of all things in the world, but not to identify with any of them.

You cannot see the seer of seeing; you cannot hear the hearer of hearing; you cannot think the thinker of thinking; you cannot know the knower of knowing. This is your Self that is within everything. What is other than this is suffering.

The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe.
The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars.
Fire and lightning and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.

As is the human body, So is the cosmic body. As is the human mind, So is the common mind. As is the microcosm, So is the macrocosm. As is the atom, So is the universe.

The light that shines above the heavens and above the world, the light that shines in the highest world, beyond which there are no others - That is the light that shines in the hearts of men.

Like two golden birds perched on the selfsame tree, intimate friends, the ego and the Self dwell in the same body. The former eats the sweet and sour fruits of the tree of life while the latter looks on in detachment.
