This past month of social isolation has allowed for more contemplative moments. One thing that I am more clear about as I settle inwardly, in presence, is that everything that I have used over the years to build a self image, that I unconsciously used to divert and distract from a greater truth of my existence is crumbling away. It was all so superficial, so it seems.
In being alone like this;in this awareness, the more conditioned and conventional habits fall away. There are less distractions and diversions to take refuge in. Presence is right there to be accessed.I am grateful for what that brings, being able to once again awaken in the morning and experience a child like sensation of looking forward to the day, with no plan other than to enjoy living it. This is something that I had forgotten in my becoming something other.
