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.

Accepting the Gift

"Everything I have is also yours...
So forgive Hafiz and the Friend if we break into a sweet laughter when
your heart complains of being thirsty"

Pretty much says it all

There are so many gifts offered
by God, by people around us
The gift of forgiveness
Gifts of affirmation and compassion
but all to often
our guilt
our shame
our pain
closes us down
blocks our receptivity
and we do not recieved
a gift cannot really be a gift
unless received
we be must open to gifts offered
especially the gift
that is God
and love
