Dear Thomas,

So sorry, please forgive. My own insignificant lower mind is 
eternally (instantly) in the way. You are right and ultimately all 
you say is all that matters. And yet, in the illusion of the moment, 
when faced with the question, it will sometimes be appropriate, and 
even helpful, to consider limitations for a time, to suggest their 
existence, in alternation with consideration of eternal reality. 
Perhaps, as long as we keep in mind the polarities that characterize 
our life in this fleeting dream of the divine truth, we will not 
stray beyond help. If we all realized the inherent divinity of all as 
you do, and describe so beautifully, the limitations would recede in 
importance immeasurably

All the best,
