I will continue on the Ishavasya Upanishad sixth verse.
यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

That is what exactly you are doing in your life. You try to gauge, study, cognize, understand everything, based on the idea “I”, “Aham”.

Because, only with that, the support of that, and its existence, you are able to perceive and enjoy, have all the moments, and able to relate with Existence. Read More
