Do Not Be Fooled

Lissadell House

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Boarding schools effected all 530 Tribes. These schools were specifically built for the purpose of removing children..the duration these children were away from their families was years...Parents and children were heartbroken. Parents would travel for days and only to be told they couldn’t see their kids..so parents stood at the fence only to hope to get glimpse of their child..and these were Catholic priests and nuns running these schools.

Benediction for the Heavy Heart

Good morning. I missed your “good”
because a plane, because a truck, because
a gun, because a cop, because a government,
because a people suffering, because too many
people suffering, because war, because famine,
because some mornings it is so hard
to rise, to wake, to be a self.
There is a pause here. There is a deliberate
cessation. I want a cessation to the noise
in my head, to the ache in the collective
heart of this world. When I was young
this seemed possible. . . .
I want your mornings “good,” your evenings “good,”
all the late nights and sunrises and afternoons
and moments pressed against the ticking
glass of your life “good.”
Breathe. For yourself. For each other. Let
us breathe in when others cannot. When we
can do nothing else. Let us stretch ourselves
open to embrace our friends, extend
our bodies outward to anyone willing to meet us
and even those we think may not be willing. Let us
hold each other for this moment. For this
blink of human existence.

After so many days ...
Unknown photographer.

[04/05/20]   Just be careful, [me, being stay-at-home] Actually, I've just been talking about this with the microwave and toaster while drinking coffee, and we all agreed that things are getting bad. I didn't mention anything to the washing machine, as she puts a different spin on everything. Certainly not to the fridge, as he is acting cold and distant. In the end the iron straightened me out, and she said everything will be fine, no situation is too pressing. The vacuum was very unsympathetic... told me to just suck it up, but the fan was more optimistic and hoped it would all soon blow over! The toilet looked a bit flushed when I asked its opinion and didn’t say anything, but the door knob told me to get a grip. The front door said I was unhinged, and so the curtains told me to ........yes, you guessed it .....pull myself together....(author unknown)

Speaking of social distancing...here’s the Katakhi pillar in Imereti #Georgia quite possibly the most isolated church on earth, inhabited by a single monk named Maxime Qavtaradze. The establishment sits on a 40m (130ft) tall limestone monolith. The only access is a long wire-tunneled ladder to the top.

What are some cool incredibly unknown isolated spots you know of?

Working Class History

On this day, 1 April 1649, a farmer and writer called Gerrard Winstanley along with a small group of 30 to 40 men and women occupied St. George's Hill, Watton, Surrey, England and began tilling the land collectively. Over the coming months, numerous local people would join them and for the movement which became known as the Diggers.
Winstanley was a Protestant who began to write pamphlets criticising the church, which held that "god is in the heavens above the skies". Instead he argued that god was "the spirit within you". In a pamphlet published in January 1649 he wrote: "In the beginning of time God made the earth. Not one word was spoken at the beginning that one branch of mankind should rule over another, but selfish imaginations did set up one man to teach and rule over another."
The politics of the Diggers were a form of proto-communist anarchism, advocating direct action, common ownership and the dissolution of hierarchy.

Tao & Zen

The Japanese tori gate (鳥居) ⛩ "symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred."

My son took this photo yesterday afternoon. It was dark and raining. We had taken a drive into the mountains of Japan and came to these stairs that led up to a sacred shrine. There's something a bit foreboding about the image, yet beautiful and a bit mystical.

As the world contracts with fear and concern of the corona virus, might there be some deeper potential for transformation of our consciousness right now? At the moment the path ahead looks and feels scary, dangerous, but as we rise above the forests of our fears, might we find ourselves with greater clarity about our lives at this point in human history? A clearer understanding of what is sacred, beautiful, important, meaningful and of real value?

General information

Unitarian Universalists, with thirteen congregations in the area, celebrate a six hundred-year tradition of liberal religion and more than a hundred years here in North Texas. Unitarian Universalism has Christian and Jewish roots while also embracing science and reason, and is deeply entwined with American history. With the inherent worth dignity of every person as our first principle, UU churches have a long history of civil rights activism, were among the first to ordain women, have been doing same-gender unions since the 1970’s, and have more openly GLBT ministers than any mainline denomination. To find a church near you, please visit www.ntuuc.org.
