Verse 7.31.31

बाह्यताभावनाद्बाह्यमात्मैवात्मत्वभावनात् ।
भवतीदं परे तत्त्वे भावनं तत्तदेव हि ॥ ३१ ॥

bāhyatābhāvanādbāhyamātmaivātmatvabhāvanāt |
bhavatīdaṃ pare tattve bhāvanaṃ tattadeva hi || 31 ||

The mind wanders on the outside by thinking about the outer world, and so is it confined within itself by its meditation on the inner soul; such is the contemplation of the Supreme being, either as he is thought of or seen in spirit in the inner soul, or viewed himself to be displayed in his works of creation in the outer world.
