Kitty O´Meara´s poem, And People Stayed Home.
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.
La imagen de las velas encendidas proviene de uno de mis viajes por los monasterios budistas de Ladakh y Zanskar, al norte de la India.
Recuerda: La vela no esta encendida para iluminarse a sí misma.
