Your voice is not really a voice;
It is song celebrating God
With the Universal Heart.

Your eyes are not really eyes;
They are Love
Embodying itself
In Compassion-Fragrance.

Your hands are not really hands;
They are Power –
First a fearsome catapult of strength,
Next moment a beckoning flow of sweetness
Upon a flute-reed.

Your Meditation is really Meditation,
And Your Compassion is really Compassion,
Your Life is the God-Dance,
You are the World-Master.

– Shephali Burke.
