The Cosmos does not exist. It is an illusion. It never is, has been or will be. The Creation of the Cosmos, the dissolution of the Cosmos, the billions of individuals emerging and merging, all this is but a dream. There is no individual Jivatma (soul) at all. There is only One Indivisible Complete Absolute. Like the one sun reflected as a billion suns in a lakes, ponds, and drops of water, the Jivatmas are but reflections of the One in the minds that it shines upon.
- Sri Sathya Sai Baba
