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.

Let everything happen to you; beauty and terror
Just keep going.  No feeling is final

feelings can be terrifying
they are powerful
like a mighty wind

they roar through our souls
life a wildfire
untamed and dangerous

there are times
so many times
when we would like them just to go away
and we repress them, and pretend they never were

and allow them free reign in our souls,
the anger
the fear

but our emotions are just emotions
they have no reality, other than what we give them
they come,
but they also go

we do not have to live fear, or hate
they are there for us to observe
and step away from, if only a half a step

ours to notice and let go

they are also ours to hold
the love, the hope
the wild joy

We must let everything happen

we must walk through the terror
and nurture the beauty

but keep going
just keep going
