Different roots… Interesting. I have to admit that I thought as a child that my feet were deformed because most people I knew (and most shoes were shaped for) Roman or Greek feet. However, now I see that I have Egyptian roots.
You ARE the Universe.You are not IN the Universe, you ARE the Universe; An intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the Universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.
