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.

Trust the Heart

“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.”
― E.E. Cummings

each day we walk
through a world of fire

red hot hate

it robs us of our humanity
our compassion
our love

we must trust our hearts
not the voices of the religious
that tell us to condemn
and judge

not the lies
spoken by the arrogant and manipulative politicians
that tell us to fear

but our hearts
which tell us the deepest of secrets

how to love
though the stars walk backward
