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.

We carry the secret

“It’s time to care; it’s time to take responsibility; it’s time to lead; it’s time for a change; it’s time to be true to our greatest self; it’s time to stop blaming others.”
― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Its not out there
The cause of our pain
Nor the cause of our joy

Oh, the world around us can contribute
There are crazy despots
Greedy brothers
Heartless politicians

There are hateful people
And racist people
And angry people

There are people who carry guns into a movie
And people who seek to intimidate
To make up for
The holes in their souls

But in the end it all comes down to what is in inside

If there is an empty place
Where Sacred Presence should be
Where Love should be

We can sit in chairs of gold
And be scared and miserable

But when that place is filled
We can be in the midst of the worst life can bring
Cancer, death, betrayal

And have a most quiet time
In our souls

We can know
That how we walk through life
How we respond to all the chaos that surrounds us

Depends on that quiet place within
We are not helpless, powerless
God has created a safe space within each of us

“In my father’s house there are many rooms”

And from that place
out of that peace

we can live
we can care;
take responsibility; lead; create change

we can stop blaming life
we can stop blaming others.”

we know the way
we know

to be Sacred children
