The Three Presences

Posted on May 1, 2005 in Reflections Spirituality and Being

square184.gifEveryone, I think, experiences three presences or senses of belonging. Actually I think the count is more than that, but throughout my life I have experienced three which pertain to my birth upon this world. All stem from the fact that I came into the world as a child and remain here composed of its substance and will, in time, lose my identity when I lose the sense of separation from the rest of the Universe. The coming to have an identity is birth and its loss death. The three presences upon which I meditate today are the literal, the practical, and the spiritual:

I am one of two sons, two brothers

I am an only child

I am one of billions of children on this earth, a brother to all
