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.

Send out goodness

“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.”
― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

funny it is not
it is not

that when out of need
or greed

out of fear

we hug to ourselves
the blessings of life

in whatever shape they might come

whether those blessings be
food or clothes, housing or
just pure wealth

the colder and less satisfying they get
the less they fill and nourish
and the more and more we need
the more we must grasp and compete

but the more we are able to be free is our souls
secure in Sacred Love and Presence

and the more we expend our blessings
for the benefit of others

the more we send out goodness
whether we be an individual
a company
or a nation

then the more we are surrounded by others
and warmed by love
and embraced by grace

the ended the lesson
for this day
