Otherness

I can still have an individual perspective and consciousness while being completely one with all the diversity I see and one with the Whole.

Yet the promise, even the guarantee, is that, to the one who perseveres, the way becomes steadily easier and the rewards continually become greater; And always there is more joy upon the road. Persevere!
