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.

let it go

When the mind wants to break its link with the world
It still holds on to one thing
                                Kabir (quoted by J Kornfield, A Path With Heart, p. 104)

“Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
                                Jesus (Mark 10)

If we would be
people of the Spirit
we must leave all behind and


I don’t believe Sacred
wants us to be miserable

I just think there are so many things
that cause us lose our original connection

these are the things we can’t let go of!

thus we are called to release
anything we are too attached to
anything more important that the Sacred
anything that blinds us to the way of the Sacred
anything that hurts us

anything that causes us to hurt others  (for some the hate of Muslims or the idea that we can love God by hating others)
anything that keeps us from seeing things and addressing things that really need to be seen and addressed (denial)

we might even need to let go (I know I do)
of our belief that we are “not enough”
all those thoughts of being deficit, worthless, ruined, hopeless

“what is left?” you might ask
