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.

What is important?

"Beneath the many choices we have to make, love like water, flows back into 
the world through us.  It is the one great secret available to all"
Mark Nepo. "The Book of Awakening"   p. 136


flowing, bubbling

nourishing, life giving
once loose
water rushes
it covers all
it finds any little space
and fills it
moves through it
once loose
it is an irresistible power
a tsunami
like force

so too love

love should not
can not 
must not
be hugged to ourselves

The Sacred
who is Love insists that 
what is important
is for us to loosen our hearts
and cover our world
with love

To allow the penetrating
power to flow
to fill the wounds
to soothe the raw spaces 
 we are
Love's conduits

this is what is important
