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.

The Religion that Wins!

Religions were to have a contest
something perhaps
like a beauty contest
or maybe 
a pie eating contest

which one would win?

how do we judge these faiths afterall
that come come at us 
with books
and sacraments
and proclimation
of truth
(at least in their own eyes)

it seems
to me
i would humbly assert
that the one that wins
should be the one
that creates the most love
that brings forth the most kindness
and tolerance
and compassion

it should also be the one
that makes my own beauty
and value
to me

and your own beauty

to you
