bright but hidden




.
Bright but hidden, the Self dwells in the heart.
Everything that moves, breathes, opens, and closes
Lives in the Self.  He is the source of love
And may be known through love but not through
thought.
He is the goal of life.  Attain this goal!

The shining Self dwells hidden in the heart.
Everything in the cosmos, great and small,
Lives in the Self.  He is the source of life,
Truth beyond the transience of this world.
He is the goal of life.  Attain this goal!



~ The Mundaka Upanishad
Modes of knowing
translation by Eknath Easwaran
