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.

Birthing love

As Sr. Ilia Delio says so well, "Christian life is a commitment to love, to give birth to God in one's own life and to become midwives of divinity in this evolving cosmos.
We are to be wholemakers of love in a world of change.
                                                                        Richard Rohr

we are created
in the image of God
we participate in the Sacred
we carry Sacred Presence
we live God in our lives

since God is love
it is natural to live love
in our attitudes
our words
our actions

anything else
is unnatural
a distorted humanity
a blurring of the image

as we live in this
unstable world

we are called
to be a solid calming presence
we are called to give birth
to that
which holds this fragmented world
with its fragmented souls

love is all there is
