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.

Beauty in Silence

Speak only when your
words are more beautiful
than silence ~
               Imam Ali

there is a beauty in silence
in the silent majesty of mountains
in an eagle soaring
and the whispering of the wind

there is a beauty
in a hand reaching out to comfort
in a hug given
in food offered
and compassion given
through silent presence

help me Lord to be silent,
and bless
the silence
with your beautiful presence
