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.

Anything Can Happen

“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
― Shel Silverstein

There are so many voices

you can’t do it
you shouldn’t do it

that is just foolishness
that won’t work

its all over
there is no hope

and so we close our minds
and our hearts
to that which can be

to hope
and wonder
to the magic of dreams made true.

Listen to the voice inside
the voice that says wild and foolish things

whispering, shouting,
love the enemy
you gain by giving
have no fear

listen to the voice which reminds you,
you can be the light
you can be the difference
you can defeat the powers of hate and fear
darkness and death

you can be the one
who releases the power of love
into a world that knows too little of love.

Do you not know, have you not heard?
Anything can happen
anything can be
