THOUGHTS ON PRESENCE …

“If you are in a state of intense presence you are free of thought, yet highly alert.

If your conscious attention sinks below a certain level, thought rushes in, the mental noise returns, stillness is lost, you’re back in time. …

Not to be able to stop thinking is a dreadful affliction, but we don’t realize this because almost everybody is suffering from it, so it is considered normal.

This incessant mental noise prevents you from finding that realm of inner stillness that is inseparable from Being.

Most humans are never fully present in the Now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one.

But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.

And that’s a revelation for some people: to realize that your life is only ever now. …

Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, you cannot lose something that you are.”  ~ Eckhart Tolle

Become present to your inner purpose.

As you reflect on it and align with it,

your actions will be informed by your own true self,

and

you will be infused with wisdom and power that benefits all concerned.
