Universe As One Person

The whole universe is one person; let go the little things. 
Give up the small for the Infinite, give up small enjoyments for infinite bliss. 
It is all yours, for the Impersonal includes the Personal. 
So God is Personal and Impersonal at the same time. 
And Man, the Infinite, Impersonal Man, is manifesting Himself as person. 

We the infinite have limited ourselves, as it were, into small parts. The Vedanta says that Infinity is our true nature; it will never vanish, it will abide for ever.
