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.

Shadow and light

Now is the time
to unite the soul and the world.
Now is the time
to see the sunlight
dancing as one with the shadows.

Life is a matter
of light and shadow

a sense of both blessing and curse
good and bad
love and hate

they are woven together
creating this tapestry
that is

perhaps we need them both
for we can be blinded by the light
or swallowed by the darkness

and lose our way

it is as we embrace both
shadow and light
that we can place our feet
firmly on the earth

sacred and profane
good and bad
joyful and sad

and complete
