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.

Letting Go

Whatever you have in your mind - forget it;

Whatever you have in your hand - give it;
Whatever is to be your fate - face it!

Abu Sa'id

ah the art of letting go
of expectations

I have not mastered it
I tend to clutch desperately
as an old man to youth
to my cherished thoughts
my precious “things”

and yet the art of obtaining
all that the Sacred has to offer
involves not grasping

but letting go

it is being a leaf on the river
borne quickly
Sacred future
