Peace, one and all…
The curtains rise.
A hush falls over the audience,
as love’s great performance
begins anew once more.
We wear so many faces,
as we act out
the script of our lives
in this theatre of manifestation.
Each role we play
draws out some new quality,
coming to us through
the heart’s great portal of light.
The deeper truth beneath these acts of ours
begins to proclaim itself at last:
we ourselves are the theatre;
we are masks over the Beloved’s bright face.
Abdur Rahman, 3rd May 2011
