All is True Self, all is One

“‘When will the kingdom come?’ ‘It will not be said, Look here it is, or, Look there it is. Rather, the father’s kingdom is spread out upon the earth, and people do not see it.”
–Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“That which is diversity has been misconceived from the personal, or external viewpoint, to be separation. The great work for each soul is to lift the personal view point to such great heights in consciousness that it becomes one with the whole.” –Baird T. Spalding

“The ancient Law of Microcosm and Macrocosm tells us there is no real difference between the vast external universe and the limited internal universe of the human body, except that the individual believes itself to be different.”
-Svoboda, Kundalini, pg 52

“If the doors to perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”
–William Blake

“Cleanse your vision into the mystery of things: can you make it spotless?” –Tao-te-Ching

“I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“He who is near me is near the fire.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“One who sees the Supersoul accompanying the individual soul in all bodies and who understands that neither the soul nor the Supersoul within the destructible body is ever destroyed, actually sees.”

“‘The spirit is the one who has been using the mind. Each time you have a conscious thought of raising your vibration, that thought has power and force and clarity. You have zeroed in on what it is that you wish to accomplish. That thought goes out like a clear, straight arrow. It doesn't stop. All other consciousnesses who become aware of that clear straight thought can add power to it... If you can actually allow your mind to accept the fact that truly every molecule of everything is light, and light is synonymous with love, you can bring this into your belief system and can then work with every atom of your body. You can turn up the power. You can let the light shine. By turning up the power, by turning on the light, by speeding up that vibration, you can actually dissemble your physical form... If our mind is our greatest tool, and if we do wish to use it to its fullest capacity, then we wish to consciously connect with those realms of light. So we send out those vibrations. We consciously practice thinking on light, on expansiveness, beyond the stars... Our intent is that incredibly strong lifeline that we can send out. It has to be done in some disciplined manner, however. There has to be continuity of some kind... Consciously focus your thoughts on light. Not just from without, but light that radiates from every cell of your living being. From the planet herself, from each plant and animal, and from the very air and water themselves. Think that every single thing you come in contact with or even think of, is in essence made of light. And the core of light, the very bottom line, is love,’”
-Camon, The Convoluted Universe

“One who sees the Supersoul equally present everywhere, in every living being, does not degrade himself by his mind. Thus he approaches the transcendental destination.”
–Bhagavad-Gita, As it is

“Realize that heaven is a perfect state of consciousness, a perfect world here and now, and all we need to do is accept it. It is here all about us, waiting for us to open the inner eye. Through that eye our bodies shall be made light, the light which is neither of the sun or the moon but of the Father; and the Father is right here in the very inner most part of our being,”
-Spalding, L.T.M.F.E.

“If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” –Jesus.

“The Christ is God flowing through the individual. One standing in that attitude has everything to use and all of the principle flows through him… Now divinity is God in everything, in every form. The Christ means the power to realize that divinity within. Then don’t we see the Christ in every face, in every form?”
-Baird T. Spalding

“When someone knows the one who is extremely fine, like the spume on top of the ghee, as the Benign One hidden in all beings; when someone recognizes him, who alone encompasses the universe, as God –he is freed from all fetters. That God, the maker of all, the immense self (atman), is always residing in the hearts of people. With the heart, with insight, with thought he has been contemplated. Those who know this become immortal.”
–The Upanishads

“As you accept -not blindingly, not uncaringly, but with an ever deepening awareness -those circumstances involved in human existence, you will more and more be reflecting your own light. There will come a day regardless of what is transpiring in the human community you will regard it as a blaze of light, and you will be free.”
-Emmanuel's Book

“Everywhere are His hands and legs, His eyes, heads and faces, and He has ears everywhere. In this way the Supersoul exists, pervading all things.”

“This self (atman) of yours who is present within but is different from the earth, whom the earth does not know, whose body is the earth, and who controls the earth from within –he is the inner controller, the immortal…”
–The Upanishads

“I am the light that is over all things. I am all: from me all has come forth and to me all has reached. Split a piece of wood, I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Lo, I am with you always means when you look for God, God is in the look of your eyes, in the thought of looking, nearer to you then yourself or things that have happened to you. There is no need to go outside.” -Rumi

“The self within all is this self of yours... You can’t see the seer who does the seeing; you can’t hear the hearer who does the hearing; you can’t think of the thinker that does the thinking; and you can’t perceive the perceiver who does the perceiving. The self within all is this self of yours. All else besides this is grief!”
-Brhadaranyaka Upanishad

“There is something, amorphous and complete, that was born before Heaven and Earth. Obscure, oh, it stands alone, unchanged. It operates everywhere but is free from danger, thus we may consider it the mother of all under Heaven.”
-Tao-te Ching

“The self has entered his body, this dense jumble. If a man finds him, recognizes him, he’s the maker of everything –the author of all! The world is his –he’s the world itself! When a man clearly sees this self as god, the lord of what was and what will be, he will not seek to hide from him… The breathing behind breathing, the sight behind sight, the hearing behind hearing, the thinking behind thinking. Those who know this perceive Brahman, the first, the ancient. With the mind alone must one behold it –immeasurable and immovable. The self is spotless and beyond space, unborn, immense, immovable… He is a Brahmans eternal greatness –he’s not made greater of smaller by action.”

“Yet in this body there is another, a transcendental enjoyer, who is the Lord, the supreme proprietor, who exists as the over seer and permitter, and who is known as the Supersoul.”

“‘The self (atman) is then his source of light. It is by the light of the self that a person sits down, goes about, does his work and returns.’ ‘Which self is that?’ ‘It is this person –the one that consists of perception among the vital functions (prana), the one that is the inner light within the heart.”
-The Upanishads

“It is large, heavenly, of inconceivable form; yet it appears more minute than the minute. It is farther than the farthest, yet it is here at hand; it is right here within those who see, hidden within the cave of the heart.”
-Mundaka Upanishad

“When we look for it but see it not, we call it the invisible. When we listen for it but hear it not, we call it the inaudible. When we try to touch it but find it not, we call it the imperceptible. Because these three aspects of it are impossible to probe, it remains a single amorphous unity.”
-Tao-te Ching

“Whatever is down here, the same is over there; and what is over there is replicated down here. From death to death he goes, who sees here any kind of diversity. With your mind alone you must understand it –there is here no diversity at all!”
-The Upanishads

“Although the Supersoul appears to be divided among beings, He is never divided. He is situated as one. He is the source of light in all luminous objects. He is beyond the darkness of matter and is un-manifested. He is knowledge, and he is the goal of knowledge. He is situated in everyone’s heart.”

“I am you and you are me, and where you are, there I am. I am sown in all things, and when you gather me, it is you, yourself, whom you gather.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Eve

“God with a big G is in all things.”
-Barbara Marciniak Bringers of the Dawn

“The Supreme Truth exists outside and inside all living beings, the moving and nonmoving. Because He is subtle, He is beyond the power of the material senses to see or to know. Although far, far away, He is also near to all.”

“The Supersoul is the original source of all senses, yet he is without senses. He is unattached, although He is the maintainer of all living beings. He transcends the modes of nature, and at the same time He is the master of all the modes of material nature.”

“As a blazing fire turns firewood to ashes, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all the reactions to material activities.”

“Having obtained real knowledge from a self-realized soul, you will never fall again into such illusion, for by this knowledge you will see that all living beings are but part of the Supreme, or, in other words, are Mine.”

“I am the goal, the sustainer, the master, the witness, the abode, the refuge, and the most dear friend. I am the creation and the annihilation, the basis of everything, the resting place and the eternal seed.”

“God is the name you give to the all-wise, intelligent Spirit, and this Spirit is within as well as without every human being. It is necessary to let God stand forth through you into outer expression. Therefore, it is not necessary to seek knowledge and help from outside sources, when you know that the source of all knowledge, the spirit of all knowledge, the understanding truth is latent within you. Why seek knowledge from without as God the Universal Spirit is within?... There cannot be a deity outside of your body that is not within your body, as all is vibrating or emanating energy. Thus these vibrations flow through your whole body as well as around it and the vibrations of Deity include every atom of your whole body as well as the whole mass of the Universe. Thus, you put God everywhere, before all, within all, around all, enveloping all, and enfolding all. There is not an atom in space that does not have the emanating energy of light and life flowing through it. ”
-Spalding, V. 3, pg126

“It is true that this light is from heaven, as heaven is all about us and is light vibration. The actual focal center or starting point of heaven must be right within my body. Therefore, this heavenly light must come forth from me. The I AM of me must allow this light essence to come in; then I must generate and transform this light energy so that it can be sent out in any density that God, the I AM, desires. When this is done, nothing can resist the power of this pure light…. Just so can you transform God-power and send it out with such force that it is irresistible. It is the God-power, which is recognized all about you, allowed to come in, be generated and transformed within your body, then sent out through the reflector. These things are readily accomplished by all when they stand forth as God, their divine heritage, the Christ of God, all One. This is the divine and definite motto for all humanity. The closer humanity draws to this great healing ray, the earlier will discord and inharmony be erased. If you live freely in this light vibration which is the light of the whole world, and all draw near to it, the closer you will draw to man’s true abiding-place. Thus you find that I AM is the light of the whole world. Behold God, the table is spread. Lift up this mighty one God, this I AM. Lift this body to God and you and all are crowned Lord of All. You do place the crown upon your own head. None can do this for you.”
-Spalding, V3, pg.51
