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.

embrace the newness

strange places
open the soul
think Dublin

city streets
drenched with rain
a pub on every corner

trains clacking outside my room
drunks shouting in the street

strangeness all around

I have two choice

to embrace the newness
and open myself to the experience

or to close down
and mutter under my breath
all the things that seem ‘strange’

the Sacred is always bringing new things to life

so many changes in this world
so much new knowledge
dare we not go there

to God given newness?
