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.

the Problem with Hate

“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”
                                                          Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope

Many people are choosing hate and fear instead of love

We speak out of fear
We spew hate
We vote hate and fear as well

And in response?
More hate and fear

It’s the way it works

We got off the track
And we are wandering in the wilderness

We are paralyzed,
We are in the darkness.

We cannot let this stand
We must confront hate
We must challenge those who feed fear
We cannot let this stand
No matter where the hate and fear come from

Evil must be confronted (and this is part of the confusion)
Without use become evil our selves
Hate ourselves

But we must somehow move toward love
One post
One kindness at a time
