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.

Fall in love with love

“What did falling in love do for you? Can you ever really explain it? It filled empty spaces I never knew were empty. It cured a loneliness I never knew I had. It gave me joy. And freedom. I think that was the most amazing part. I suddenly felt both embraced and freed at the same time.”
                                                          Louise Penny, The Beautiful Mystery

What does connecting with the Sacred do?
It fills spaces we never knew exists
I cured a loneliness we never knew we had

There a crevices and cracks in our souls
Places where life has eroded and torn
Dark wounded places

Which impact our lives in ways we do not understand
From these places come the anger we cannot explain
The distrust that seems to have no basis

From these places echo the voices
Telling us we are not enough
We are never enough

But when we fall in Love with Love

We are embraced by love
And free to “catch the joy as it flies” (Blake)

We cannot explain it adequately
Nor even describe it
We can only experience it

And share it
