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.

Evil's Lie

There are things that wander in our souls
in the deep dark recesses 
where light seldom shines

there are things that wander
deep with in
and make us miserable

but evil's lie
tells us
this is not so

it must be them
those..... others
out there

they are the problem
not me

so we play the victim
poor me
or we create victims
as we export our own darkness

how else can we use
even scripture
to legitimate
prejudice, violence, hatred, killing?
those people
they are the problem
those Democrats, those Republicans
those Muslims
those homosexuals
those drunks
those lazy poor
those greedy rich
those retards
those cretins 
they are the problem
and I must attack them!
there is no shadow on my side
there is no shadow in me
and so we go with evil's lie
and fail to see
and accept
the shadow within
and so the darkness remains
in our depths
God help us let the light shine
in the recesses of our souls
and not export our darkness
