Those who see all creatures in themselves

March 2, 2016

Those who see all creatures in 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 one who sees its unity?

The Self is everywhere. Bright is the Self,
Indivisible, untouched.

O mind, meditate on the eternal Brahman.
Remember, o mind, remember.

(Isha Upanishad, transl. Eknath Easwaran)

I feel like this is the beginning of a longer story
