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.

Walk On

Joseph to his father in Canaan shall return, don't despair walk on;
and Jacob's hut will brighten with flowers, don't despair walk on.
Aching hearts heal in time, vanished hopes reappear,
the disparate mind will be pacified, don't despair walk on.
As the spring of life grows the newly green meadow,
roses will crown the sweet nightingale's song, don't despair walk on
If the world does not turn to your whims these few days,
cosmic cycles are preparing to change, don't despair walk on.
If desperation whispers you'll never know God,
it's the talk of hidden games in the veil, don't despair walk on.
O heart, when the vast flood slashes life to its roots,
Captain Noah waits to steer you ashore, don't despair walk on.
If you trek as a pilgrim through sands to Kaabeh
with thorns lodged deep in your soul shouting why, don't despair walk on
Though oases hide dangers and your destiny's far,
there's no pathway that goes on forever, don't despair walk on.
My trials and enemies face me on their own,
but mystery always backs up my stand, don't despair walk on.
Hafez, weakened by poverty, alone in the dark,
this night is your pathway into the light, don't despair walk on.

It is difficult sometimes
To walk on
We are in the desert, the waste land
In that dry and barren land

We look ahead
Looking for some glimpse of a destination
Any destination
But the stark emptiness seems to go on forever


But then we remember
The Sacred
And Sacred love

Which flows like a river
A river of life

It is there
Right there
We can touch it, taste it
We can jump in
And splash with abandon

How could we have not seen it?
And we throw our arms wide open
And we cease our struggle

We throw our arms wide open
And we let
The surging power of life
The spring of living water, welling up
We let God
Carry us………

We float

Going wherever the flow of the Spirit takes us
