T hose who see all creatures within themselves
And themselves in all creatures know no fear.
Those who see all creatures in themselves
And themselves in all creatures know no grief.
How can the multiplicity of life
Delude the one who sees its unity?


quote 4316  | 
Isha Upanishad 6-7 




N ow are for us no entanglements or snares,
Nor a bit of egoism left.
Now is all distance annulled, nor are curtains drawn between us.
Thou art mine, I Thine.


quote 4312  |   The Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji
Bilaval, M.5, p. 821 




M editate upon him and transcend physical consciousness. Thus will you
reach union with the Lord of the universe. Thus will you become
identified with him who is One without a second. In him all your desires
will find fulfillment.

The truth is that you are always united with the Lord. But you must know
this.


quote 4309  | 
Svetasvatara Upanishad 1.11-12 




T hat disciplined man
with joy and light within,
Becomes one with God
and reaches the freedom that is God's.


quote 4289  | 
Bhagavad Gita 5.24 




H e in whom desire has been stilled suffers no rebirth. After death, having attained to the highest, desiring only the Self, he goes to no other world. Realizing Brahman, he becomes Brahman.

Freed from the body, he becomes one with the immortal spirit, Brahman, the Light eternal.


quote 4244  | 
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.6-7 




T he infinite joy of touching the Godhead is easily attained by those who are free from the burden of evil and established within themselves. They see the Self in every creature and all creation in the Self. With consciousness unified through meditation, they see everything with an equal eye.

I am ever present into those who have realized Me in every creature. Seeing all life as My manifestation, they are never separated from Me. They worship Me in the hearts of all, and all their actions proceed from Me. Wherever they may live, they abide in Me.

When a person responds to the joys and sorrows of others as if they were his own, he has attained the highest state of spiritual union.


quote 4204  | 
Bhagavad Gita 6.28-32 




T his world of men, given over to the idea of "I am the agent," bound up with the idea "another is the agent," understand not truly this thing; they have not seen it as a thorn. For one who looks at this thorn with caution, the idea "I am the agent" exists not, the idea "another is the agent" exists not.


quote 4158  | 
Udana 70 




A s long as there is duality, one sees "the other," one hears "the other," one smells "the other," one speaks to "the other," one thinks of "the other," one knows "the other"; but when for the illumined soul the all is dissolved in the Self, who is there to be seen by whom, who is there to be smelled by whom, who is there to be heard by whom, who is there to be spoken to by whom, who is there to be thought of by whom, who is there to be known by whom? Ah, Maitreyi, my beloved, the Intelligence which reveals all--by what shall it be revealed? By whom shall the Knower be known? The Self is described as "not this, not that" (neti, neti). It is incomprehensible, for it cannot be comprehended; undecaying, for it never decays; unattached, for it never attaches itself; unbound, for it is never bound. By whom, O my beloved, shall the Knower be known?


quote 4113  | 
Bhrihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.5.15 




R eturn to the origin and keep to the origin.


quote 4040  |   Ho Shang Gong
commentary on the Tao Te King, 19, trad. E.Erkes, p.41 




H e perceives the oneness of everything, does not know about duality in it.


quote 4039  | 
Zhuangzi, chap.12 (Huang Lao school), trad. A.C. Graham, p.186 




V anishingly (mingran), forming a oneness with creation.


quote 4036  | 
ZZJS, 129, trad. B. Ziporyn, 2003, p.69 

see also "vanishingly embodying all things, ZZJS, 195, trad. B. Ziporyn, 2003, p.69 ; vanishingly forming a oneness with ones own time., ZZJS, 184, trad. B. Ziporyn, 2003, p.69




F ollowing the pathway and uniting with the ultimate, it is therefore called root of Heaven and Earth.


quote 4035  | 
commentary on the Tao Te King, 6.1, trad. P.J. Lin, 1977, p.13 




U nknown even to my ears, eyes, body, I do not know how to name it; thus it cannot be investigated further, but merges together to make one.


quote 4028  | 
commentaire du D.D.J., 14.1, trad. P.J. Lin, 1977, p.24 




B y cultivating ones nature (?), one will return to virtue (?). When virtue is perfect, one will be one with the beginning (?), one become vacuous (?), one become great.


quote 4022  | 
Zhuangzi, chap.22 (shool of Tchuang Tzu), trad. W.T. Chang, 1969, p.202 




T he phenomenal world belongs to that very Reality to which the Absolute belongs; again, the Absolute belongs to that very Reality to which the phenomenal world belongs. He who is realized as God has also become the universe and its living beings. One who knows the Truth knows that it is He alone who has become father and mother, child and neighbor, man and animal, good and bad, holy and unholy, and so forth.


quote 3890  | 
Nikhilananda, 1942; p. 328 




W hen a seeker merges in the beatitude of samadbi, he does not perceive time and space or name and form, the offspring of maya. Whatever -is within the domain of maya is unreal. Give it up. Destroy the prison house of name and form arid rush out of it with the strength of a lion. Dive deep in search of the Self and realize It through samadhi, You will find the world of name and form vanishing into void, and the puny ego dissolving in Brahman-Consciousness. You will realize your identity with Brahman, Existence-Knowledge-Bliss Absolute.


quote 3877  | 
Nikhilananda, 1942; p. 28 




O scholars, you are mistaken; there's no creator or creation there [in the experience of Unity].
There's no radiant form, no time, no word, no flesh, or faith; no cause or effect, or even a thought of the Vedas.
There's no Hari or Brahma, no Shiva or Shakti, no pilgrimages or rituals;
There is no mother, no father, no Guru; think! Is it two or is It One?
Kabir says: If you understand this, you are the teacher and I am the disciple.


quote 3856  | 
Bijak, Sabda 43 




R ama has possessed me; Hari has enchanted me! All my doubts have flown like migratory birds in winter.
When I was mad with pride, the Beloved did not speak to me;
But when I put on the robe of humility, the Master opened my inner eye,
Dyeing every pore of my body in the color of love.
Drinking the elixir from the cup of my emptied heart, I slept on His bed in divine ecstasy.
The devotee meets Hari as gold meets a gold-solvent-, the pure heart melts into its Lord.


quote 3855  | 
Bijak, Shastri, 1941;p.37 




H aving been made one with God, the soul is somehow God through participation. Although it is not God as perfectly as it will be in the next life, it is like the shadow of God. Being the shadow of God through this substantial transformation, it performs in this measure in God and through God what He, through Himself, does in it. For the will of the two is one will, and thus God's operation and the soul's is one. (1)

... When there is union of love, the image of the Beloved is so sketched in the will and drawn so vividly, that it is true to say that the Beloved lives in the lover and the lover in the Beloved. Love produces such likeness in this transformation of lovers that one can say each is the other and both are one. The reason is, that in the union and transformation of love, each gives possession of self to the other, and each leaves and exchanges self for the other. Thus each one lives in the other and is the other, and both are one in the transformation of love. (2)

...Thus, no one ... can disturb the soul that is liberated and purged of all things and united with God. She enjoys now in this state a habitual sweetness and tranquility which is never lost or lacking to her. (3)


quote 3847  | 
(1) The Living Flame Of Love, III.78, Kavanaugh & Rodriguez, 1973; p. 641 ; (2) Spiritual Canticle, 12 :7; Kavanaugh & Rodriguez, 1973; p. 455 ; (3) Spiritual Canticle, 24 :5; Kavanaugh & Rodriguez, 1973; p. 503 




W hat God communicates to the soul in this intimate union is totally beyond words. One can say nothing about it just as one can say nothing about God Himself that resembles Him. For in the transformation of the soul in God, it is God who communicates Himself with admirable glory. In this transformation, the two become one, as we would say of the window united with the ray of sunlight, or of the coal with the fire, or of the starlight with the light of the Sun. (1)

... The soul thereby becomes divine, becomes God, through participation, insofar as is possible in this life. ... The union wrought between the two natures, and the communication of the divine to the human in this state is such that even though neither changes their being, both appear to be God. (2)


quote 3846  | 
(1) Spiritual Canticle, 26:4; Kavanaugh & Rodriguez, 1973; p. 512 ; (2) Spiritual Canticle, 22 :3-4; Kavanaugh & Rodriguez, 1973; p. 497 




I n the same way, no one can hinder this man, for he intends and seeks and takes delight in nothing but God, for God has become one with the man in all his intention. And so, just as no multiplicity can disturb God, nothing can disturb or fragment this man, for he is one in that One where all multiplicity is one and is one multiplicity.


quote 3814  | 
Treatise A. 1, Colledge & McGinn, 1982, p. 211 




T he eye by which I see God is the same as the eye by which God sees me. My eye and God's eye are one and the same-one in seeing, one in knowing, and one in loving.


quote 3810  | 
Sermon 23, Blackney, 1941; p. 206 




S ome simple people think that they will see God as if He were standing there and they here. It is not so. God and I, we are one. (1)

I am converted into Him in such a way that He makes me one Being with Himself-not a similar being. By the living God, it is true that there is no distinction ! (2)


quote 3809  | 
(1) Sermon 6, Colledge & McGinn, 1982.; p. 188 ; (2) Sermon 18, Blackney, 1941; p. 181 




A s the soul becomes more pure and bare and poor, and possesses less of created things, and is emptied of all things that are not God, it receives God more purely, and is more completely in Him; and it truly becomes one with God, and it looks into God and God into it, face to face as it were; two images transformed into one.


quote 3808  | 
Treatise A.2, Colledge & McGinn, 1982; p. 222 




F inal and perfect happiness can consist in nothing else than the vision of the Divine Essence. ... For perfect happiness the intellect needs to reach the very Essence of the First Cause. And thus it will have its perfection through union with God ... in which alone man's happiness consists, as stated above.


quote 3807  | 
Summa Theologia, II.1.8
