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.

Awareness is like the sun
When it shines on things
They are transformed
                              Thich Nhat Hanh

Awareness is a good thing

Not a fun thing
Not an easy thing
But a good thing

For if we are not aware of the chattering in our head
If we are not aware of the dark things rattling around in our souls
we are powerless

we are controlled by what we do not understand
by what we do not hear, do not know
by what we will not face
cannot face

Ignorance is not a option
For the person who wants to live a meaningful life

If we do not see our fears
Our delusions
Our weakness
If we do not see our strengths

We cannot be our best
And we will often be our worst

But if we see
Then we can repair the broken
Clean out the dark
And embrace the good

And be transformed
