tatTat tvam asi” is an ancient Vedic mantra which means: “You are that” or “That you are.”

What does it mean?  It means that Universe (Reality) is not inter-personal but intra-personal.

What does that mean?  It means that when you look “outside” you are looking “inside.”

What does that mean?  That means that you are seamlessly embedded in a beginning-less, bound-less, cosmic Oneness of all that is.

What does “it” mean to “you”?

Same as ‘”it” means to “me” – “it” means peace… from our dualistic illusion of separateness.

In sum: “I” = “It” = “You” = Oneness (of all that right now is)

Only All That Is requires no quotation marks.
