What If ... ?

"What if our religion was each other 
If our practice was our life 
If prayer, our words? 

What if the temple was the earth 
If forests were our church 
If holy water - the rivers, lakes, and oceans? 

What if meditation was our relationships 
If the Teacher was life 
If wisdom was self-knowledge 
If love was the center of our being?"
