Realizing the Self in the Duality of Life

Like to golden birds perched on the selfsame tree,
intimate friends, ego and self dwell in the same body.

The former eats the sweet and sour fruits of the tree of life,
while the latter looks on in detachment.

As long as we think we are the ego, we feel attached and fall into sorrow.
But realize that you are the Self, the Lord of life,
and you will be freed from sorrow.

When you realize that you are the Self,
supreme source of light,
supreme source of love,
you transcend the duality of life and enter into the unitive state.

-Mundaka Upanishad
