We are all swimming in that ocean of awareness.
Thus the wise disciple will know the supreme and realise that he and he alone exists - one without a second.
The Bhagavad Gita was taught on the battle-field just before the war commenced, and in that stress situation Arjuna did not have time to sit down and contemplate the message.
Long afterwards Arjuna sought Krishna again and said: "Many years ago when we were about to fight, I collapsed and you gave me a brilliant exposition of philosophy. I have forgotten that. Won't you repeat it?"
Krishna replied: "I was in a different mood then, because you were in a receptive mood. It is not possible to recapture it now. But I remember vaguely what was said: so I'll repeat it."
If it is part of human nature, it is absurd even to think of changing the reality.
In that case, I must accept exactly the same behavior from the other man, and everything will become all right!
