Once upon a time.

Once upon a time a little girl asked her mother a simple question. 'Mother, what sets humans apart from other creations of God?' The mother replied with two simple words: ‘Self-reflection’. The next day the girl returned to her mother with another question. ‘Mother, what is Self?' The mother replied: ‘Self is One not wanting to be alone.’ The mother left yet to return with another question the following day: ‘Mother, what is the purpose of Self?' The mother answered the following: ‘The purpose of Self is Companionship, Friendship, Love. You see; all this is Self. Self is diverse for Companionship. Self is diverse for Friendship. Self is diverse for Love. So Love simply Love for the truth is always simple and the purpose is always Love.'
