Krsna said in the previous verse, mat-sthani sarva-bhutani na caham tesv avasthitah [Bg. 9.4]. That is explained in this verse that "Everything is resting upon Me. But at the same time," na caham tesv avasthitah, "they are not also in Me." This particular portion has to be understood. When Krsna says, God says, that everything is resting upon Him, that means everything is resting upon His expanded energy, not personally on Him. Personally He is aloof. Therefore it is said, na ca mat-sthani bhutani. The same example. Just like when we say everything is resting on the sunshine, that does not mean everything is in the sun but the sunshine is not different from the sun.
