The world you perceive is such a potent invitation to discover that in you which is unchanging—that which is untouchable, that which will always be here even when all of this passes. The one who is rooted in that which remains when everything comes and goes, lives forever—not as an earthly body, but as the light of consciousness. The consciousness that is being-ness is all that really matters. There is only one being-ness manifesting through all these apparent separate selves in the world—there appear to be billions of beings, but truly there is only one. Discover this being-ness and you will know that which lives forever. Being-ness has no beginning and no end—it is the totality of existence, and therefore it is wholeness itself.
