December 21st – Favourite Christmas poem/story/picture

Today’s Blogmas prompt asks us to share our favourite Christmas poem/image. Mine’s not really directly Christmas-related but I love the poem, as it talks of an ideal, peaceful, world, something I think everyone’s mind floats towards as we open our hearts that little bit more at Christmas time.

What if 

What if our religion was each other?

If our practice was our life?

If prayer was our words?

What if the temple was 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 centre of our being
