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.

God, we are MESSED UP

I made a mistake God
a big one
I read the news
God, are we messed up
We know that you are love
We know that your priority is people
all people
all races
all cultures
rich people (yes, them too)
poor people
hungry people
homeless people
gay people
lesbian people
heterosexual people
hungry people
sated people
sad people
happy people
ragged people
pampered people

we know that you want us
to have people as our priority

but when I read the news
as I read about state legislatures
as I read about the behaviors of corporations
 I see that we are not
all about love
we are not all about people
we are about power
and wealth
more specifically it appears
our power
our wealth
it is not so much "us" and "them"
as it is "me"
O Lord
from our lust for power
and our love of money
