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.

Wrong or Right?

People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong...
Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those
things and make them bloom?
                                                          Thich Nhat Hanh


If I look for failure, I find it
Every time

If I look for problems, I find them
Every time

If I look for deficits, or evils
Ah Ha!
There they are!

Its so easy
To see and feed the negative
Bringing forth ugliness and foul fruit

It is easy too to look for good
To think in terms of promise

to find that speck of Sacred that lies
within each of us
sometimes dormant and frail

to touch it
within our own souls
within others

and feed and nurture it
until it grows and blossoms


good fruit!
