All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,

As the tied string said, I'm a frayed knot.

Think in terms of mixed ingredients. Beer + lemonade = shandy. Wine + ? = ?

God's driving in a car and reveses. Then He starts driving round in circles. When he speaks bits of tree come out of his mouth. Why?

Perhaps it was a bit obscure. It's because God's a dog.

First, God reverses (dog). Then He drives round in circles (like a dog chasing His tail). Next he barks.

1) Within me there a many places you can visit; you can come and go and yet never move from where you are. What am I?

2) In the morning I awake and stretch my many arms out until night time, when I fold them. What am I?
