Presence or Presence?

Presence has two distinct meanings.  The first is that of being mindfully aware in the current moment (ex. I have presence, I am here).  A second meaning is the existence of something “other” than ourselves (ex. there is a presence in the room, there is something here in the room).  There are parallels between the two meanings, in a way that being present and mindful can allow us to be aware of a presence larger than ourselves.
