Experiences of cosmic consciousness have been described in many religious scriptures throughout istory. The ultimate creative principle has been known by many names—Brahman in Hinduism, Dharmakaya in Mahayana Buddhism, the Tao in Taoism, Pneuma in Christian mysticism,Allah in Sufism, and Kether in the Kabbalah. The basic message in the mystical traditions has been that not only can we experientially connect with the creative principle but each of us, in a sense, is the creative principle.This is possible because all boundaries in the universe are ultimately illusory,arbitrary, and can therefore be transcended. The best known expression of this perennial wisdom is the famous statement Tat tvam asi (or “Thou art That,” you are the Godhead) found in the ancient Indian Upanishads.
