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.

Gold to Lead

Turning Gold in Lead

I sit an listen
To a learned soul
talk about ACES


how do we turn
beautiful children
innocent and full of potential

not just our children
but children of the Sacred


into lead

people struggle
in every dimension of life

becoming people who are
so profoundly wounded, emotionally, physically, mentally
that they seek relief
any way they can find it

through food
or drink
or sex

how do we turn Gold into

let us remember the often hidden damage
that lies behind the surface of those who struggle
to find sobriety
to be in a relationship that is not twisted
to be functional in a job

let us remember
and have compassion
for all the damaged children

no matter what age
they happen to
