It is usual for humans to pursue Love with pride: and to treat Truth with humility. For Love shows so lovely a face that all fly into her arms. Yet to do so is to court destruction from consuming passion. But Truth is believed to be so hideous that she is seen as a Gorgon's head entwined with venomous serpents and so much be avoided at all costs! It is regarded as safer to prostrate before the veiled Goddess, rather than to lift her Veil. Many fear the fate of Oedipus, who gave the factual answer to the Sphinx's riddle, not knowing the true meaning and so perished from his own ignorance.
I am amused that you should ask Me to lift my veil; and because I am entertained I shall do so, according to your true need, but not for the satisfaction of your curiosity which you dignify with the name of science. For wit is my prerogative and humour is my salt. The shock when I lift my veil often brings laughter more than the tears induced by Love. And you fear laughter, when it is directed against yourself. It is to be reduced to your relevant size, your true degree. And this in one second kills self-deluded dreams of your importance in relation to others, your high stature that diminishes your rivals.
However, do not fear, though there is much to be feared! Only fear self-deception. For in reality Truth bears the most beautiful face of all the Deities. When you gaze into my mirror you may first see the Gorgon's Head of your follies: but through this mask you will with the eye of discernment see your own immortal beauty. And so you will also see the immortal beauty hidden in all beings.
