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 lose the passion

“It's better to get lost in the passion than to lose the passion”
                                                           Søren Kierkegaard

How much do we love the Sacred?
How much do we love the earth?
How much do we love our neighbor?
Our lover?

It is so easy to become careless
For life to become lost in the living
And love to be lost in the loving

We cannot lose our passion for the Sacred
We cannot lose our passion
For all good things

For when passion dies
We become those who seek what we have lost
In things that cannot give us what we seek


We seek them
We will do anything for wealth
Anything for power

But we end up


We have traded in life for a counterfeit
And no degree of power, no amount of wealth will work
We can even become President, and we will still be empty shells

For when our hearts harden
And passion for God, and others dies

We die too
