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.

Elizabeth Browning

“We all of us need to be toppled off the throne of self, my dear," he said. "Perched up there the tears of others are never upon our own cheek.”
                                                           Elizabeth Goudge, The White Witch

ah my friends
it is all about “I”
so find your throne and perch on it!

the grab what you want
after all you are the king
you are the queen

and it is all about you

you having power
you having wealth
you having safety

it matters not if what you want has a cost
a planet for a little more profit in the American economy
no problem

cutting health care so that one might have
a few more dollars in one’s account

destroying education
neglecting children
abandoning the poor
is merely collateral damage
as one pursues essential selfishness.

sitting, perched on thrones of essential selfishness
there are no tears
there is no remorse

and the tears of the failing earth
the hungry child
the homeless person with bipolar

are never even seen
