Imagine a sheet of paper with two slits cut in it and a thin slip of paper woven through the slits.
No matter which side of the paper you look at, you can see the strip of woven paper, but you can’t see the entire strip at one time.
This image fits nicely with Eckhart Tolle’s explanation of life, “Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal.”
There’s always more to life … the life that we are … than meets the eye, and like the strip of paper, though it can’t be seen by us in its entirety, it nevertheless exists eternally.
