The beauty of what lies within you as your very essence, is that it created the entire Universe and is totally involved in its creation. It is manifesting in everything created. It is totally immersed and involved and identified with its creation, and yet stays apart. What is it that can be a part of everything and yet be apart from everything? That is how powerful consciousness is. It has the power to identify and be in and exist with everything, and yet be apart from it. So we say that it is immanent, it is involved, and it is transcendental, it is beyond.

The goal is to able to see that immanent nature of this consciousness, that it is inside of everything and can identify with everything, and to be able to understand its transcendental nature, which is to come back and look and experience its apartness. This is how it manifests in the whole Universe – it is totally involved in the creation, immanent, and totally transcendental, beyond – and the same is reflected within our being. There is transcendence within us and there is immanence within us.
