You can have perfection and immortality through long struggle. The mortal in the

relative plane does good and evil acts. Evil also is a negative good. Out of evil, sometimes good

comes. Everyone learns lessons in this world and evolves. God is only a witness. He does not

make men do evil acts. Man has intellect and free will. Man, out of his egoism, does actions

One with you, One With Him!

We've never seen each other before

And yet you locked my eyes with yours

And be one with the One who had sent you!…
