This is a Play, Love pretending to be many things

“Let those who seek, continue to seek until they find. When they find, they will become troubled. When they become troubled, they will be astonished… Recognize that which is within your sight, and that which is hidden to you will become plain to you.”
–Gospel of Thomas

“We are God dreaming that we are not God.” –Don Miguel Ruiz

“God said, ‘The world is a play, a children’s game and you are the children.’”

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and thier entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts....”
–William Shakespeare, As You Like It II vii 139.

“This life of the world is nothing but a sport and a play; but, verily, the abode of the next world –that is, life. If they did but know!”
-Qu’ran, Part II, tran. E. H. Palmer

“The yogi provides minds for the bodies he creates through his personality… The yogi thinks differently through different minds, acts differently through different bodies, but the original mind that controls them all remains unaffected.”
-Yogasutra, Aphorisms of Yoga

“There is nothing but love. Don’t let the masks and postures fool you.”
–Emmanuel’s Book

“Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Become passer-bys.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“You have physical bodies that ache and sometimes scream. You have emotions that seem to tear you apart. I urge you in those times of such stress, ask yourself who is it that is experiencing this. And the ‘who’ that is aware of the experiencing, not lost in it, but aware of it, will be the bearer of the Light.”
–Emmanuel’s Book

“Of these two thousand ‘I’ and ‘we’ people, which am I?… There is an original inside me. What’s here is a mirror for that, for you. If you are joyful, I am. If you grieve, or if you’re bitter, or graceful, I take on those qualities.” –Rumi
