Catching up with NOW!

I am sorry to have been away from here for so long...times during the CoVid quarantine have been busier that so-called "ordinary time!"

That said, I too have struggled with the disbelief of it all; how quickly our accustomed culture not only disintegrated but became overcome with absolute fear, from which many rules began to fill our lives, many demands, many assumptions, many absolutes. But what I have come to see now is the understanding that what springs from fear is only more fear; and not only deepening fear - spreading to everything - but fear that divides families, groups, and all the other realities that destroy the peaceful way of life that we think we are seeking.

There is much to consider here, and more every day as time goes on and panic builds. The question I would ask is: "What am I doing, what are we doing, to calm and ground ourselves in the everyday midst of this intense societal pressure?" That will be there for a long time, but isn't it time to practice presence-in-nature, in meditation, and in the many practices that spiritual teachers are offering?

Thanks, glad you found it here. I think it's remarkable. Holly's grandmother is one of my long and close friends; it was she who sent it.

Thanks for posting this. I heard it read from Abbey Theatre in their "Dear Ireland" and was hoping that I would find it on the web. I thought it stole the show.
