What is presence?
Presence is turning your head toward something.
It is turning not only your gaze, but your attention, your thoughts. Your ears tuning into, listening wholly, to what is in front of you that is demanding of your attention.
Presence results in knowing who people truly are. It is getting to know them, and the things they face.
It is about realizing that this world in its present form is passing away, and that we will never have moments that are exactly as they are now, ever again.
