PARTS IN THE PLAY
SCENE: Somewhere near you… "when the muse was hidden between contractions, bubbles floated by with images inside," 1 and the images used the words to introduce a Divine Paradox to the Self.
THE IMAGINATION: (Addresses the two lovers) I could have lived alone forever; "Instead, I hurled Epithets until I was splattered with truth." 2 I encourage you to be the same. (THE IMAGINATION appears vanished.)
EXHALE: My True Responder, I can not live without "These beauteous forms…" 3 for there is no other way for me to "Know Thyself" 4 without you, and your perfect mirror of manifestation. I will need eternity for you to know my gratitude.
INHALE: Oh My Bold Initiator, hold fast the beat, it is I who can not be without your proposal, for you reflect liberation. Your immediate patience is your greatest gift. Guide me to your will and I will follow. Your gentle touch is the most tender caress; which WILL span all time.
EXHALE: Sweet Symphony, you sing to my heart with truth and wisdom in harmonious expansion. You’re whispers tickle my ear and bring my smile to life. Oh how you sooth the deepest cuts with the perfume and taste of your sensual body.
INHALE: Gentle Strength, I willingly cease, so you may be free, and in patient faith I await your eternal abundance to return love to contract.
EXHALE: My Balanced Beauty, will you allow love to be formless creation? Can our emotions blend and add even greater color to the fabric of all that is?
INHALE: My Understanding Discipline, will you allow love to be formed creation? Can our thoughts fill the world with joy and ecstasy?
BREATH: Together our love flows in perpetual uncondition.
