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.

Living from the heart

The heart is beautiful precisely because it is where God dwells
The heart is the divine sanctuary
                                                          John O’Donohue,  Book of Blessings

at our core
we are beautiful
each of us is a precious, amazing soul

a dwelling for the Sacred

and at times
that splendor
shines through the cracks and fissures
of our dry and brittle
and all too common

and there is

sadly we often worry more about the surface cracks
than about our hearts

our attempts to fix those cracks and fissures are doomed to failure
all we end up doing, with such an emphasis
on surface things
is block the love

so we must constantly go to the deep level of the heart
we must be the Sacred (Spirit)
where it lives within us
and fan the flame
of faith

the more fire in our hearts for the Sacred
the more light and love
finds its way through us
into the world

and God knows
the world needs light
and love
