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.

Tear down the church

Tear down the temple
Tear down the mosque
[Tear down the church]
But do not tear down the heart
For that is where God lives
                             Bulleh Shah

Ah, we humans are a twisted lot
In the name of God
We build magnificent edifices
And profound systems of theology
We establish institutions
And grab places of power

But tear down hearts

Forgive us
O Sacred One
When we forget that people
Must always be the highest priority


In the Kingdom of God
No one is left behind
