“Tat 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.
