“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
Here is a poem written by an Irish Poet, Kathleen O'Meara in 1869 - after a plague devastated Ireland in the late 1860's. How appropriate for today!
And people stayed home
and read books and listened
and rested and exercised
and made art and played
and learned new ways of being
and listened deeper
someone met their shadow
and people began to think differently
and people healed
and in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways,
dangerous, meaningless and heartless,
even the earth began to heal
and when the danger ended
and people found each other
grieved for the dead people
and they made new choices
and dreamed of new visions
and created new ways of life
and healed the earth completely
just as they were healed themselves.
