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.

New Years

“I won’t take no for an answer,”
God began to say
to me

when He opened His arms each night
wanting us to
                             St. Catherine of Siena

what does God want from me?
the question haunts

as I plod through each day
seeking answers

ah, for certitude
to know, to know
that I am good

and then the answer come
“I want you to stop worrying!
all I want is your love
all I want is for us to dance
through life

all I want is for you
to know you are loved
as you wallow
in the questions

you don’t need no stinkin’ answers

just be loved
just love
that is ultimately it”

and thus my New Year’s Resolution for this year
allow myself to be loved
by God
by others,
and pass it on
