We dance

I was just reminded of one of my favorite religion-related quotes, courtesy of John Dougill at the Green Shinto blog… as originally reported in Joseph Campbell’s book Oriental Mythology, a Shinto priest was asked by a Western academic about the ideology and theology of Shinto. According to Campbell, the priest replied, “We do not have ideology. We do not have theology. We dance.”
