We all live slices of our full self.
As time is viewed as a loaf of bread which is sliced we too can look at our self with the same analogy.
We are all in the process of writing the eternal story which is our being. One day we will all embrace this state of being which is our destination. In our state we occasionally get glimpses of this.
We are all sculptures of our eternal self. We have yet to finish as we have yet to find the key of worth.
