The Prompter Room

For Tuesday, November 29, 2016:

 

Solitude does not necessarily mean living apart from others; rather, it means never living apart from one’s self.  It is not about the absence of other people – it is about being fully present to ourselves, whether or not we are with others.  Community does not necessarily mean living face-to-face with others; rather, it means never losing the awareness that we are connected to each other.  It is not about the presence of other people – it is about being fully open to the reality of relationship, whether or not we are alone.
