Your journey is your journey …

“You cannot see what I see, because you see what you see. You cannot know what I know, because you know what you know. Everything you see, or hear, or experience in anyway at all, is specific to you. You create a universe by perceiving it ,so everything in the universe you perceive, is specific to you.”
