Echo of the beloved voice:
"Give me all of your pain and disappointment, joy and contentment--all of it. I will take it, but give it all! Hold nothing back to make a new self of. Give me your life and yourself. Give it all, and I will take it."
It's the last demand, the last instruction, the last signpost in the Great Mystery. It's the funniest trick God/dess ever played on Itself. Yes, it was all necessary. :)
