Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

When love is there

When love is there
You can make it through anything
When love is there
You can let go gracefully
When love is there
You may want to grasp and pull
But you may find the strength to open your hands
And let the other fly

When love is there
You goal will be to make them happy
And in their happiness find joy

When love is there
You heart may hurt
And be joyful at the same time

When love is there
You will expect much
Perhaps too much

But be joyful in what you get

Love is
The cross
Love is, putting the other first
Love is, being there
Love is, listening deeply
Love is, being present in the others pain
Love is, sharing your own pain

And humbling yourself
Saying “help me please, I need you”

Love is not
A feeling you feel when you feel like you are going to get a feeling you never felt before
Love is not
Love is not peace (just the opposite)
Love is not using another to get what you want

But love is
a gift
and rare

when you find love,
never let go
