In the mirror of your mind, images appear and disappear. The mirror remains.
Learn to distinguish the immovable in the movable, the unchanging in the changing; till you realize that all differences are in appearance only, and oneness is a fact. This basic identity – you may call God, or Brahman, or the matrix (Prakriti), the words matter little – is only the realization that all is one.
Once you can say, with confidence born from direct experience, ‘I am the world, the world is myself’, you are free from desire and fear on one hand, and become totally responsible for the world on the other. The senseless sorrow of mankind becomes your sole concern.
