"In truth, every single moment of our lives
presents us with a choice: either
awaken to the reality of the present

The Eesha Upanishad says:

weeping for joy, united in parting there is no
single self but each as it
manifests becomes an invisible companion. The
room is very crowded
tonight. And still the question, but who is this?
