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.

Prayer is

Prayer is the act and presence of sending this light from the bountifulness of your love
To other people
To heal, free, and bless them.  When there is love in your life, you should share it spiritually
With those who are pushed to the very edge of life.
                                                                                                John O’Donahue, Anam Cara, p. 35

Is not coercing God

it is not ringing the bell for a Cosmic Bell Hop

it is not mere words
spoken into a vast emptiness

it is the sending of love

it is opening up the flood gates
so the “spring of living water” might gush forth
and water
parched souls

at times it is
giving food to the food bank
and giving
whatever is needed
to those who are in need
