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.

Warrior Slogans

What is our script O God?
wise people
in ancient days
used to live with warrior slogans*
so too did Jesus
"love your neighbor"
"blessed are the poor"
the more we have chosen
and say
and practice our scripts
the more they become
the more they become
"our breath , our eyesight
our first thought"*
this day O Lord
may my slogan be
one that empowers
and opens
and makes me smile


*Pema Chodron in "Uncomfortable with Uncertainty"

    Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.
    It's not about me.
    Let go let God.

    2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
