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.

There is enough

“If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.
[Inaugural Address, January 20 1961]”
― John F. Kennedy

There is enough
There is enough to feed the hungry
Clothe the naked
And house the homeless

There is enough to teach our children

There is enough

If, a few do not hug too much to themselves
If those with the money
And those with the power

Understand that what they have is due to
Sacred generosity
And is meant to be shared

And understand that the is courage,
And intelligence among the poor
And people who work hard, so hard
Combatting so much, so much
And are still poor

There is enough if the rich do not exalt themselves
And see themselves as entitled
Who deserve it all
And the poor, all those precious souls
Seen as lazy moochers
Who deserve nothing

If we over value the rich
And devalue the poor

If our society does not put its resources to work
helping the many who are poor
The rich few will ultimately

And so we all
