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.

Even the Shadow of God

" Even the shadow of God is brilliant, ....
so much so even God
has trouble ....
at Himself as that ....

Unless He is more disguised,
hidden in illusion,
hidden as He .... can be
in us. "
                             - Hafiz

People can see bits of God in the majesty of mountain
In the sound of water laughter across rocks
In the sudden storms that drench and replenish the earth

But the Sacred is seen most clearly
When the people in whom God has hidden
Allow the sacred to dance in their souls

Today I saw children playing
People running
Families gathering
Cowboys (and cowgirls too) riding and roping

And in the midst of it all
