Life is eternal; all of life is ever changing form, yet the essence of life is always here in the present moment. When realization of this becomes crystal, there are no ordinary persons.
The individual self is the illusion, the temporary dwelling of the creature we animate, is not the true self. There is no self, other than the perception within us each, and this is illusive.
This means this life we are, has never had a beginning, nor shall there ever be an end. We endure all experience, learn of our inherent endowments, and spend all of eternity within the arms of love.
