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.

I'm Fine

“I did not want to appear before the world as pathetic, depressed, and psychologically ill. So I erected a barrier of words and wit around myself, so that nobody could see how needy I really was.”
― Karen Armstrong

When we are struggling and hurting
When our soul is in pain

We often try to act as if everything is OK
“I’m fine”

But in spite of our best efforts our inner ache leaks out
In ways often dysfunctional

We silently cry for someone to comfort us
But act in ways that disconnect us and alienate us from others

Sometimes we just need to say
“help, I’m hurting”

It is then the healing can
