But the map cannot take the journey - and the destination is not in the map.

If you are looking for the Brahman in creation, you will not find it!

Mind / Senses cannot perceive the Brahman since that Brahman is the very
source of the looking / thinking.
Greater than the greatest, smaller than the smallest - yet eternally
tat tvam asi

Yours in Truth
