From the Ashtavakra Gita:
I am not the body, nor is the body mine. I am not a living being. I am consciousness. It was my thirst for living that was my bondage.
"Truly it is in the limitless ocean of myself, that stimulated by the colourful waves of the worlds everything suddenly arises in the wind of consciousness.
"How wonderful it is that in the limitless ocean of myself the waves of living beings arise, collide, play and disappear, according to their natures.
"All this wells up like waves in the sea.
Recognising, "I am That",
why run around like someone in need?"
