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.

Be the Light

Travel Light,
Live Light ....
Spread the Light,
Be the Light. "

today the sun will rise
today I waken

one more day
on the road to eternity

it is a hell of a journey, life

it has its moments
good and bad
times when the road is smooth
and times when we can barely make our way

there are things along the way
that hurt us, and create pain
and things that bring us joy

this journey is not for the faint of heart

but this is a journey a home
we may wander through deserts uncharted
and jungles unknown (take your pick)

but we are Sacred Children
headed toward home, headed toward a union
or re-union with that from whence we came

and we carry our heritage with us
that Sacred Presence which defines us
(sometimes clearly, sometimes not so clearly)

we carry the Light
and that changes everything

if we so choose

for we can ignore the Light
perhaps even deny it

so each day we must choose
(or so I think)
whether we will be a child of Light
or not

as children of Light we have choices

we can choose to travel light
to lay down all those things that burden us,
weigh us down
hinder our journey

hate, fear, anger, self-loathing,
mistakes, failures,
we can lay them down, all of them, and travel light

we can choose
as those set free to live lives of
compassion, acceptance and generosity
we can give and forgive
we can spread the light

we can choose
to let all the beauty
all the hope, joy and love
that is the Sacred,
fill us
transform us,
and then flow from us
into what ever space, whatever place
we are in

we can
“Travel Light,
Live Light ....
Spread the Light,
Be the Light. "

this day
