“Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Invoke the deity within
behind the mask of human seeming
beyond the face shown each day
Become yourself beyond the judgement
Invoke the will behind the act
revoke the outer tearful clown
and be for the moment ourselves.
— G A Rosenberg
We take on so many roles in our life. We are parents, children, employers and employees. We are lovers, friends, neighbours, constituents and more. Our behaviour changes to fit each role and often it may feel as if how we act towards one or more people in our lives does not express who we really our. We are so much more than any of these disguises. If we could peel away those calcified masks we wear we will be amazed at what shines through.
