I was forwarded this last week: “An Imagined Letter from Covid-19 to Humans”. As I am one of those people who cherishes the Earth above all, I was very moved when I read it. And found it to be a very true sentiment. I include the author’s information out of respect and in case anyone wants to contact her.
From Miriam R. Osofsky, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist (20 West Park St, Suite 216, Lebanon, NH 03766, 603-443-0500):
Stop. Just stop.
It is no longer a request. It is a mandate.
We will help you.
We will bring the supersonic, high speed merry-go-round to a halt.
We will stop the planes, the trains, the schools, the malls, the meetings, the frenetic, furied rush of illusions and “obligations” that keep you from hearing our single and shared beating heart, the way we breathe together, in unison. Our obligation is to each other, as it has always been, even if, even though, you have forgotten.
We will interrupt this broadcast, the endless cacophonous broadcast of divisions and distractions, to bring you this long-breaking news: We are not well. None of us; all of us are suffering. Last year, the firestorms that scorched the lungs of the earth did not give you pause. Nor the typhoons in Africa,China, Japan. Nor the fevered climates in Japan and India.
You have not been listening.
It is hard to listen when you are so busy all the time, hustling to uphold the comforts and conveniences that scaffold your lives. But the foundation is giving way, buckling under the weight of your needs and desires. We will help you. We will bring the firestorms to your body.
We will bring the fever to your body. We will bring the burning, searing, and flooding to your lungs that you might hear:
We are not well!
Despite what you might think or feel, we are not the enemy. We are Messenger. We are Ally.
We are a balancing force.
We are asking you: to stop, to be still, to listen; to move beyond your individual concerns and consider the concerns of all; to be with your ignorance, to find your humility, to relinquish your thinking minds and travel deep into the mind of the heart; to look up into the sky, streaked with fewer planes, and see it, to notice its condition: clear, smoky, smoggy, rainy?
How much do you need it to be healthy so that you may also be healthy? To look at a tree, and see it, to notice its condition: how does its health contribute to the health of the sky, to the air you need to be healthy? To visit a river, and see it, to notice its condition: clear, clean, murky, polluted? How much do you need it to be healthy so that you may also be healthy? How does its health contribute to the health of the tree, who contributes to the health of the sky, so that you may also be healthy?
Many are afraid now. Do not demonize your fear, and also, do not let it rule you. Instead, let it speak to you—in your stillness, listen for its wisdom. What might it be telling you about what is at work, at issue, at risk, beyond the threats of personal inconvenience and illness? As the health of a tree, a river, the sky tells you about quality of your own health, what might the quality of your health tell you about the health of the rivers, the trees, the sky, and all of us who share this planet with you?
Stop. Notice if you are resisting. Notice what you are resisting. Ask why.
Stop. Just stop. Be still. Listen.
Ask us what we might teach you about illness and healing, about what might be required so that all may be well. We will help you, if you listen.
After I received this wonderful post, I saw this:
STUDY: MORE LIVES IN CHINA SAVED BY CLEANER AIR THAN CORONAVIRUS HAS KILLED
Airborne Nitrogen Dioxide Plummets Over China
January 1 through February 25, 2020 NASA and Euro Space Agency pollution monitoring satellites have detected significant decreases in nitrogen dioxide NO2 over China. There is evidence that the change is at least partly related to the economic slowdown following the outbreak.
Well, that gives us something to think about.
I offer this with love and gratitude…
