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.

Seeing Clearly

I am unsettled sometimes
by what I read
and see,
by life

I find myself walking through my days

anger is everywhere
rejection too
nothing seems to be working

people around me
seem distant

it is then that I realize
that it is time 
to clean my glasses
How we think
how we talk to ourselves
profoundly alters the way we see the world
it is important to know
if our spiritual lenses are "dirty"
or out of focus
because our self talk is negative,
our expectations unrealistic,
our values and beliefs unhealthy
sometimes we need to take some time
to get our hearts and minds clear
