His Universe within

"The Upanishads represent the culmination of a process which comes to regard the individual self as having great inner depths, and, indeed, as containing the universe within. The truth (satya) is the absolute (brahman) which is also the self (atman).” (Gavin D. Flood, 1996, 85)

"The Gospel of Thomas also suggests that Jesus is aware of, and criticizing the views of the Kingdom of God as a time or a place that appear in the other gospels. Here Jesus says," If those who lead you say to you," look, the Kingdom is in the sky," then the birds will get there first. If they say"It's in the ocean," then the fish will get there first. But the Kingdom of God is within you and outside of you. Once you come to know yourselves, you will become known. And you will know that it is you who are the children of the living father.”
