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.

Living in Deep Time

There is an inherent and desirous dissatisfaction that both sends us and draws us forward, and it comes from our original and radical union with God. Jung said the God Image is a whole-making function. What appears to be past and future is in fact the same home, the same call, the same Mother, and the same God--but always a larger life on both ends. To live inside of the Divine is to live in deep time, where before and after become one. Our "life is indeed a luminous pause between two great mysteries, which themselves are one."
                                                                Richard Rohr, Daily Mediation, 10/8/15

we are in between people
in between birth and death
in between home and home
in between God and God

we are both longing for that one from whom we came
and longing for that one to whom we go

we are longing our original unity and blessing
and longing for that time
when our communion with the sacred

a radical union

we live the mystery

taking a deep breath in that
“luminous pause”

always carrying Sacred Presence
in us
however awkwardly

finding our way home
reflecting the promise
of what was
and what is to come
