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.

Feast away

When you diminish another person, you diminish yourself
When you diminish yourself, you diminish others
                                           John O’Donohue,  Eternal Echoes, p. 76

when we feel it necessary
in order to build ourselves up
in order to create a sense of power and importance

when we feel it necessary
in order to “defend” our ideology
(or faith as the case may be)
to cut others down

We diminish ourselves
we become smaller
as our souls shrivel

when we find it impossible
to love ourselves
to build ourselves up
and when we thus, feel small

we find it even more necessary
to make others smaller than ourselves

the smaller we are
the smaller we must make them

the only solution to any of this
is a “fat soul
a soul stuffed with God

feast away
on Sacred love
gorge yourselves
 and don't forget
to pass the plate
