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.

God speaks

Everyone one is really God speaking
Why not be polite and listen
to the Old Guy?     Hafiz

Therefore, consider how you listen.   

I am sure you spoke today Lord
I think you spoke through the tamaracks 
shining golden in a fall forest

I am sure you spoke as the sun poked 
through the gray clouds
making faces in the sky

I am sure you spoke through that little girl, 
skipping through the store in the mall (made a trip to the big city of Lewiston today)
You spoke to through that clerk
who did more than just take my money
but smiled
and put energy and warmth in to my day
You spoke to through a passage I read in the Bible
that confused, and then challenged
And you spoke in that moment when I realized
that I had been very very wrong
that I had acted out of weakness and need
and not fullness
You speak so often God
You challenge and confront
You tell me about costly things
And wonderful things
You comfort and guide
and encourage
and I?
sometimes I listen
sometimes I don't
I fear I have selective hearing God
(I am told by my family this might be so :)
Help me God 
not just to listen
but to hear
I wonder what a spiritual hearing aid looks like?
