History repeats itself. -

this poem written in 1869 by Kathleen O’Mara:,

reprinted during 1919 Pandemic.

This is Timeless....

And people stayed at home
And read books
And listened
And they rested
And did exercises
And made art and played
And learned new ways of being
And stopped and listened
More deeply

Someone meditated, someone prayed
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,
The earth also began to heal

And when the danger ended and
People found themselves
They grieved for the dead
And made new choices
And dreamed of new visions
And created new ways of living
And completely healed the earth
Just as they were healed.

Reprinted during the Spanish flu
Pandemic, 1919

Thank you Russell.

Thanks. Merci.

We should meditate on the depth of these words and maybe it would resolve our many bad choices.

good one Mr R.P.
