Origin

Whatever appears to you in the universe is due solely to that great Light within you.  Ananda Mayi Ma

In my birth all things were born and I was the cause of myself and of all things.  Meister Eckhart

He who is disembodied perceives without any screen, like Moses, the light of the Moon shining from his own bosom.  Rumi

Jesus said:
I am the light
which is over everything.
I am the All
from me the All has gone forth,
and to me the All has returned.
Split wood: I am there.
Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.

His disciples said:
Show us the place where you are,
for it is necessary for us to seek it.
He said to them:
He who has ears, let him hear!
There is a light within a lightman
and it illuminates the whole world;
if it does not illuminate it, it is darkness.  Gospel of Thomas

The Atman is that by which the universe is pervaded, but which nothing pervades; which causes all things to shine, but which all things cannot make to shine.  Shankara

Where time has never entered and no form was ever seen, at the centre, the summit of the soul, there God is creating the whole world.  Meister Eckhart

Non existence is God's factory.  Rumi

Though One, Brahman is the cause of the many. There is no other cause.  Shankara

There is no chaos in the world except the chaos which your mind creates. It is self-created in the sense that at its very centre is the false idea of oneself as a thing different and separate from other things. In reality you are not a thing nor separate from other things. You are the infinite potentiality, the inexhaustible possibility. Because you are, all can be. The universe is but a partial manifestation of your limitless capacity to become.  Nisargadatta

We come from the Light, the place where the Light comes into existence through itself alone.  Gospel of Thomas

Man is in appearance a derivative of the world, and intrinsically the origin of the world.  Rumi

The treasure of treasures for the soul is to pass from the something into this Nothingness from which anything can be born.  Boehme

In me, the infinite ocean, arises the imagined universe.  Ashtavakra Gita

Uddalaka asked his son to fetch a banyan fruit.
'Here it is, Lord,' said Svetaketu.
'Break it.'
'I have broken it, Lord.'
'What do you see there?'
'These almost invisible seeds.'
'Break one of them.'
'It is broken, Lord.'
'What do you see there?'
'Nothing, Lord.'
Uddalaka said: 'My son! That subtle essence which you cannot see there, from that very essence this great banyan tree springs up. Believe me, my son! That subtle essence, in it all that exists has its self. It is the True. It is the Self. And you, Svetaketu, are That!  Chandogya Upanishad 

Let us contemplate the very Foundation of this universe, through whom the world seeks liberation. Anandamayi Ma
