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.

Awake, Awake God is coming!

Is there anything I can do to make myself Enlightened?
As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning!
Then what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?
To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise.
                                Anthony De Mello (a conversation between a master and disciple

There were signs everywhere

In the sky a tiny point of light
Shining, moving, drawing eager searchers nigh
gifts in hand

prophets of old had spoken
the promises were there
the details many
scattered through the Law and Prophets
and pondered
and proclaimed

So many angels
Do not fear
Do not fear
Do not fear

Someone is coming
God is on the way

John the Baptist
Hairy messenger of God
Shouting in the wilderness
As wild and unkempt as the ground on which he stood
Uncomfortable and strident
You brood of vipers!!!

Angels again
Awake shepherds awake!
Leave your sheep
find the lamb

There were signs everywhere

And so many slept
And so many sleep

"Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
Isaiah 60:1
