Verse 4.31.35

स आत्मानं यथा वेत्ति तथानुभवति क्षणात् ।
चिदाकाशस्ततोऽसत्यमपि सत्यं तदीक्षणात् ॥ ३५ ॥

sa ātmānaṃ yathā vetti tathānubhavati kṣaṇāt |
cidākāśastato'satyamapi satyaṃ tadīkṣaṇāt || 35 ||

Whatever that being purposes himself to be, he conceives himself to be immediately the same: it is that vacuous Intellect only which is the true reality, and all others are also real, as viewed in it and rising and setting in it out of its own will.
