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.

Awake my soul

You can search far and in hungry places for love.  It is a great consolation to know that there is a wellspring of love within yourself.  If you trust that this wellspring is there, you will then be able to invite it to awaken
                                                John O’Donohue, Anam Cara, p. 28

I am surrounded by smoke and fire
the forests burn
and the earth
turns its cracked face to a red sun

plants wither and die
in this dry and weary land

O for a wellspring water
welling up

to nourish the earth
and satisfy the desperate thirst

O Sacred one
water the dry earth
and water too
my parched soul

with a river of living water
with Sacred life

awake my soul
drink in
Sacred love
and be
