Religions of Poets

The great religions are the ships, poets the lifeboats. Every sane person I know has jumped overboard!
       To clarify, this statement does not mean atheism, not in the slightest. Religion is one thing and your relationship with God is another. The latter is the thing to pursue, and it can be gloriously pursued by every movement of your body - how you act, what you read, who you turn to, the foods you eat, the songs you sing, the activities you engage in, the hobbies you pursue, the people who you love, etc. Your relationship with God is conveyed by how you approach each day and life itself.
       Mahatma Gandhi said: "It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart. God has no religion.”

The Man With The Nail Scars (1989), David Meece
