Engaging with presence | Juwon Ogungbe

Characters in narratives are usually engaging because of their needs and wants. It is possible to tell stories about listlessness and lacking a sense of purpose, but sustaining interest in the plotlines is probably tricky.

Some people reach advanced ages, wondering what their lives are all about. Anyone who hears a calling to do something productive should be grateful.

Understanding that one doesn’t need to wait for permission to follow one’s muse is a liberating feeling. There are various scales and levels of activity available to all of us.

Sensitivity to unseen and unheard energies might come across as kooky or spooky, but responding to these urges makes a life’s journey worthwhile.

More often than not, the path leads back to one’s self.
