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.

To touch the soul of another human being is to walk on holy ground.
Stephen Covey 

O Lord
It is easy to forget
the sacred in others

Sometimes it is difficult
to get past
all the external distractions

the anger
the hate
the poverty

hard to look past
the dirt
and the drunkenness
the behaviors we do not like

hard to look past
the smell
and the raggedness

hard to look past
the racing minds
the voices we cannot hear
the dark depression
that silence and isolation
but Lord
inside each of us
you reside
the Sacred seed is there

and when we reach out
with understanding
and compassion
when we reach out
and touch

we are on holy ground
