There are always lessons to be learnt in life. I had begun to reflect on lessons from our shared virus experience, but I decided this morning to save those for another time. I found a poem that I would rather share with you. It’s by John O’Donoghue from ‘To Bless the Space Between Us’.
This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.
Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.
If you remain generous,
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning.
Let us continue to cultivate faith, compassion and generosity within ourselves and towards each other as we move through these unprecedented times.
We’re all in this together. We are not alone. His eye is on the sparrow. How will we respond?
Love and prayers
If this is helpful to you, please share with others to broaden the contemplative pathway.
