Last night we watched a movie called Wadjda. In it a little girl recites a verse of the Koran (115), 

"Whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has been made clear to him and follows the path of the non believer we will give him what he has taken and drive him into hell that most evil destination."

This jolted me upright because I remembered being about her age and memorizing the following verse from the Bible, Hebrews 10, verse 26,

"For if you sin willfully after which you have receiveth the knowledge of the truth, then there remains no sacrifice for your sins but only a fearful looking forward to of death and fiery indignation."

Hauntingly similar, no? Fear-based theology.

So this morning it was wonderful to dance to Gogol Bordello's "Dub The Frequencies Of Love" and resonate with these lyrics...

"Master tell me how come everything they taught us
Always seems to be so terribly wrong
In the meantime music from the tiny island
Takes over the world

Frequencies of love
Gather round, oh come on
Frequencies of love
Overcome, overthrow!

So dub it like tovarisch could
Say it like a brother would
Hold me like a mother would
Onto transmigration"

I found a picture perfect for this "tiny island music" before the temple...

At the heart of this dirty snow monster lies a pristine Crystaline heart of snow
