He who sees all beings in the Self
and the Self in all beings,
he never turns away from It (the Self).
He who perceives all beings as the Self’
for him how can there be delusion or grief,
when he sees this oneness (everywhere) ?
He who perceives the Self everywhere never shrinks from anything, because through his higher consciousness he feels united with all life. When a man sees God in all beings and all beings in God, and also God dwelling in his own Soul, how can he hate any living thing? Grief and delusion rest upon a belief in diversity, which leads to competition and all forms of selfishness. With the realization of oneness, the sense of diversity vanishes and the cause of
misery is removed.
