The Magic Show

The world and all its illusions are like a magic show.
You see the magician, and you also see his magic.
Perhaps you see him pulling rabbits out a hat.
Perhaps he pulls a coin from your ear.
You might see him climb up a rope that is suspended in midair.
Or the magician might fly through the air without even a rope to guide him.
The show is dazzling, but then you remember: it is all just an illusion.
The only thing that is real is... the magician.
At first, you see God's show. And then you see... God.
