It has been several weeks since the planet has come to a near halt due to the mandates of the corona virus. I find it interesting how the terminology has shifted from “social distancing” to “self-isolating” to “sheltering in place”. I am feeling yet another shift that I am calling “Sheltering in Presence”. That realization came to me this evening as I noticed the intimacy I am feeling with my own Presence. Due to the mandated isolation, there can be no expectations from anyone outside of our selves.
