This cosmic body (atman) is the honey (effect) of all beings, and all beings are the honey (effect) of this cosmic body. Likewise, the bright, immortal being who is in the cosmic body and the bright, immortal being identified with the [individual] self [are both honey]. [These four] are but this Self. [The Knowledge of] this [Self] is [the means to] Immortality; this [underlying unity] is Brahman; this [Knowledge of Brahman] is [the means of becoming] all. (2.5.14)

In the beginning, this [universe] was the self (Viraj) alone, in the shape of a person. He reflected and saw nothing else but His self. He first said: "I am He." Therefore He came to be known by the name I (Aham). Hence, even now, when a person is addressed, he first says: "It is I," and then says whatever other name he may have. And because He, before (purva) the whole group [of aspirants], burnt (aushat) all evils, therefore He is called is called purusha

Ishavasya Upanishad # 1: TRANSLATION: The entire universe is enveloped, covered, and pervaded by the Supreme Being. By a renunciation arising in the light of the all-pervading nature of the Supreme Being, one can live a life of detached duty and happiness in this world without selfish craving for wealth. (wealth here represents all that is desirable such as name, fame, power, progeny and wealth etc.) Mahatma Gandhi said this one sentence is religion enough for the whole humanity.
