will i dissolve in the sea


'As a lump of salt thrown in water dissolves and
cannot be taken out again, though wherever we taste
the water it is salty, even so, beloved, the separate self
dissolves in the sea of pure consciousness, infinite and
immortal. Separateness arises from identifying the
Self with the body, which is made up of the elements;
when this physical identification dissolves, there can
be no more separate self. This is what I want to tell
you, beloved.'


-Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.12

 

 


Will I Dissolve in the Sea is based on my path within Hinduism. I am chasing the experience of the ultimate reality. The reality we observe is only one layer of reality, it's the surface. It focuses on separateness while the ultimate reality focuses on the oneness of the universe. I can only experience the ultimate reality. I visualize my search by capturing my meditative acts.
