I have seen this before and love it every time. I am leaning more and more towards a tea length or high low skirt. -High-low hem lace wedding dress, love the skirt so much! And a link to the "top ten short wedding dresses".
The 'self' here is the person's mind, but the Self (capital S) refers to the individual divine soul (and the actual divine presence of God in a human being). All living creatures have the same soul, but only humans have the ability to connect with and realise/become one with the true Divinity in their soul.
