Upanishads on "God"

>From Chandogya Upanishad:

In the beginning there was Existence alone - One only, without a 
second. He, the One thought to himself: Let me be many, let me grow 
forth. Thus out of himself he projected the universe; and having 
projected out of himself the universe, he entered into every being. 
All that is has its self in him alone. Of all things he is the subtle 
essence. He is the truth. He is the Self. And that...THAT ART THOU. 

>From Isa Upanisad:

He who sees all beings in his self and his self in all beings, he 
never suffers; because when he sees all creatures within his true 
self, then jealousy, grief and hatred vanish. He alone can love. That 
All-pervading One is self-effulgent, birthless, deathless, pure, 
untainted by sin and sorrow. Knowing this, he becomes free from the 
bondage of matter and transcends death.
