Already, I've said too much.

"Making the mountains one with the mountains and making the self one with the self" misses the mark, as it implies that they are not both already one with themselves and with each other, and that there's something some separate entity, you, can do to make them whole.  The conventions of language and sentence structure require a subject and an object, and a verb connecting the two, but that's not the way the universe actually is.  

It's probably better just to say, "Mountains one with self, self one with mountains, mountains one with mountains, self one with self."
