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.

Don't just do something

Heard today in a meeting
A quote from a mentor

“Don’t just do something, sit there!”

Ah, my friends, in this highly reactive world
Where we are being called to act and react

now, Now, NOW!!!!!!

In this time when we are fed information designed to
Angry and mobilize

In this time when we are pushed to the edge emotionally
When we are tired and vulnerable

Is a good thing

Allowing our soul to calm
Going to the depths
Letting go

The coming back to the moment
Ready to act, perhaps but not react
Responding out of fullness
And compassion
But not fear or anger

Ah, yes!

Don’t just do something, sit there
