The Prophet

I cannot teach you how to pray in words. God listens not to your words save when He Himself utters them through your lips.
And I cannot teach you the prayer of the seas and the forests and the mountains.
But you who are born of the mountains and the forests and the seas can find their prayer in your heart,
And if you but listen in the stillness of the night you shall hear them saying in silence,
"Our god, who art our winged self, it is thy will in us that willeth.
It is thy desire in us that desireth.
It is thy urge in us that would turn our nights, which are thine, into days which are thine also.
We cannot ask thee for aught, for thou knowest our needs before they are born in us:
Thou art our need; and in giving us more of thyself thou givest us all."

Is it my imagination or do you japs have more haters than normal? (Except for cases like Amaranthine.) Or is it that between you all you just share the tough kind of lovin?

A mighty good question. I wondered the same myself a while ago and decided to do a little research; turned out most of my haters were from overseas. Figures don't it? (Actually, I can't figure it out very well)
I think it's not that people dislike me so much as they enjoy being anonymous on a blog that will pay them any attention at all.
