self is ONE and 'others' is just a word.
Light is in my experience, so I call my experience magic, no need to dig deep and break it down, that's what I call being lost.
Being divine is a singular trait, as in I am divine. To balance that trait, a polar opposite is required, and that would be divided. The perfect balance of the equation says that me being divine is all others being divided, or I/ALL.
I accept by confirming with a smile, and deny by asking a question. Fear produces questions, like brakes on a car, and the gas pedal speeds me along farther and faster in life, with a smile :).
