The Earthy Church...or spirituality within us and around us

Today a friend posted this Black Elk quote on Facebook and its straightforwardness hit home with me. In our time when religion is either over-used for political or social agendas, wars are fought in the name of god, the thought of living a spiritual life without searching out a specific church building for worship, is a soothing idea.We can walk into the woods, sit on the bare earth or just look up into the sky. Whatever we are seeking is right there, we just need to look, listen and feel. And walk our path through life accordingly.

 "THE FIRST PEACE, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us."
