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.

overcome evil with good

'And so may a slow
Wind work these words
Of love around you,
An invisible cloak,
To mind your life.'
              (John O'Donohue)

There is a storm around us
A veritable bomb cyclone
Of deceit, lies
Hate and fear

People charged with protecting our country are looting it
People charge with protecting people are harming them

And so we stand
Vulnerable, afraid


Ah may that Sacred Presence which is in each of us
Awaken within us in
May it be a soft wind of love
That wraps itself around our hearts and minds

And allow us to remain
People of compassion and love
Forgiveness and generosity

The storm will likely past
Destroyed human beings will not be able to rebuild

We cannot lose ourselves
We cannot be blown away by the hot harsh air
Of narcissism and greed
Deceit and brutality

We must stand

And resist
And in the end overcome this evil with good
And then in love not retribution

Begin again
