Alan Watts - Mythology of Hinduism

I wonder, I wonder, what you would do if you had the power to dream at night, any dream you wanted to dream. And you would of course be able to alter your time-sense and slip, say seventy-five years of subjective time into eight hours of sleep.

Upanishads, as the basic text of Hinduism one of them starts out saying in the beginning was the self.

And so this then is the basis of the Hindu view of the universe and of man. The Hindu looks upon the universe as a drama. The Westerner of course looks upon the universe as a construct, as something made.

The fundamental principle of Indian philosophy is Atman as Brahman and your self is the Supreme Self. Or it is expressed also in the formula tat vam asi, colloquially translated “you’re IT.
