Peace in a Pandemic

All change on Planet Earth

A new world going through a painful birth.

If we take this time as a spiritual opportunity

Seeing life as a journey on which we never stop learning

We’re in this together and also alone

This journey could bring humanity home.


The human race has been deep asleep

in a dream of separation

from the powers that keep

the cosmos revolving and humanity evolving.

These powers are found within

and this time is the beginning

of a new collective story for us all

it will emerge when we listen to their call.


Ancestors are always with us.

At Samhain the veils are at their thinnest

It pays dividends to take time to be still, give them space

doing so we reconnect the human race

to the core reality of being alive –

the living and the dead and like day and night –

we are due a return of second sight:

the mind’s eye can many wonders reveal

things that have long been concealed

especially from the masses, and still are today

we’re kept asleep by the media, by merchandise, escapist play

but in these tough times, when our living is curtailed

we don’t need to get angry, don’t have to go off the rails:

we can sit, we can sing, dance, drum, draw, read, write, play and pray

we don’t need lots of money, we don’t need lots of people

in order to enjoy life this way

we can take the journey of exploring within

and help the new story for humanity begin.

When things feel bleak, if gloom enters our days

we can invoke the great stoic mantra AMOR FATE

which reminds us that all the twists and turns of life

are part of the journey, and can bring us to the light.
