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.

What does it take?

“We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.”
                             Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Disordered minds
Disordered hearts
Disordered souls

What does it take to carry a torch in the darkness
Seeking to create terror

What does it take to carry a shield marked with the symbols of hate
And to strike out violently
No on behalf of justice
But on behalf of prejudice and hate?

What does it take to drive a car into a mass of people
Killing and maiming

What does it take to tweet a response
That refuses to call white, domestic terrorism what it is?

What does it take?

A disordered mind?
A disordered heart?
A disordered soul?

What does it take?
