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.

Step into the light

By and by love becomes
not a relationship,
it becomes a state of your being.

Not that you are in love,
now YOU ARE love. "
                             - Mevlana RUMI

The sun shines brightly
Insistent, persistent
That I participate in the day

“Come out and play!” it cries

And I resist

I am tired
and dejected
I would rather sit
And watch the light from a cool dark place

But still the sun calls
Resolute and demanding

“You cannot merely watch the light
You must participate in it
You must dance, and twirl
You must open your arms and look toward the heavens

You must let the light shine into you
and through you
so that all around you is illuminated!


Ah Sacred Light!
You will not let us be!

Thank God!
