Fan-Girl Attack

ozar­que is Suzette Haden Elgin, author of the Gen­tle Art of Ver­bal Self-Defense series and the mar­velous Native Tongue trilogy. 

I was unaware of her Reli­gious Lan­guage newslet­ter until today. The fol­low­ing is part of her Lov­ingkind­ness Sur­vival Kit.

THE SMALL CREED

I believe in lovingkindness,
the man­i­fes­ta­tion of the Holy,
inex­haustible, infi­nite, and undivided.

What­so­ev­er hin­ders lovingkindness,
humankind per­ceives as pain and evil.
I will not be a hindrance.
I will not be con­fused by hindrances.

I believe in lovingkindness,
the man­i­fes­ta­tion of the Holy,
whose chan­nel in this world I am,
now and forevermore.
Amen.

Thank you, word­weaver­lynn!
