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.

Elizabeth Browning

looking at ourselves

People will do anything, no matter how absurd,
 in order to avoid facing their own soul.
                                           Carl Gustav Jung

People will do anything
People will believe anything
People will engage in any behaviors

That allows them to stay the way they are

That will allow them to stay entrenched
In hate
Self-righteousness and fear

That will permit them to exclude
Minimize, judge and oppress

When we refuse to look at ourselves
Refuse to look at how we think
How we view others
(Which is revealed in what we say, and what we do, and who we vote for)

When we will not entertain the idea
That we might be wrong
That the problem might be us

We are in great danger
Of becoming
