It is not that you become That, as if you had the power to break off from it & return to it at some later date, but, rather, That, the Absolute, is the solitary Existence always, & That is what you are. This is true to such an extent that you are not a part of it, nor is it a part of you, but rather the Self is the Absolute, & the Absolute is the Self; the Absolute is not other, & the Self is not other.

Tat Tvam Asi, That You Are
To abide in identity with this Reality known as Brahman, the vast Absolute, you must know yourself. “Tat Tvam Asi“, the Mahavakya, [great proclamation] of the Upanishads about you & this Absolute Reality, or God, Brahman, “That You Are.” Therefore, know yourself. If you know yourself, you know the Absolute, & what you know is what you are.
