Based on the Gospel: John 17:20-26, with the image of pinholes in a lampshade from a poem of Shabistari, a 14th century Persian poet.
“I” and “you” focus light like decorative holes cut in a lampshade. But there is only One Light. “I” and “you” throw a thin veil between heaven and earth. Lift the veil and all creeds and theologies disappear. When “I” and “you” vanish, how can I tell whether I am in a mosque, a synagogue, a church, or an observatory?
