Notes From the Furlough: Day 6

Outside, inside—what’s the difference?

Discuss, please. How does this play out in life?

I’ll start us out. Like most folks, I’m focused on living inside these days. Living inside my house. Sheltering inside my circle of safe companions. Living inside the limits of my revised finances. Traveling only inside restrictions on essential activities. We see inside as safe and outside as risky. The corona virus is also pushing me to go inside—myself. I’m more self-reflective and more aware of the connection with the divine that resides inside me (and all of us). This provides my true safety, in refocusing my interactions through the lens of shared divinity. I go inside to experience the wholeness of creation.

How about you? What treasures have you found inside yourself, and how do they support you?
