Thoughts on Presence

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.

Winter Solstice Reflections

“Death is a stripping away of all that is not you.

The secret of life is to die before you die – and find that there is no death.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

 

WINTER SOLSTICE REFLECTIONS …

As the daylight reduces I find myself getting more reflective. I have thought on death and dying off and on for sometime, as I want to diminish my fear of the inevitable next stage of Life.

I had a shockingly delightful breakthrough insight the other day. It pierced the fear and often invisible cultural discourse we live inside of:

You Finished With That?

How many times have you been at a restaurant and the server circles by your table to ask, “Still working on that?” or “You finished with that?”

I’ll leave the manners of such a question to friend and colleague Thomas Farley (Mr. Manners).

Positive Transformational Change

“An attitude which greets life with inspired expectation and an understanding of the power inherent in being present in the moment brings with it a capacity for resilience and, consequently, a more stress-free life experience. Such an attitude generates a growth mind-set which integrates people’s personal values with the choices they make. Anyone who values humor and good feeling values health and well-being for self and others, and realizes the connection between well-being and a happy, fulfilled life experience.

This Thing We Do...

This thing we do...

This separation which we perceive...

This experience of life or lunacy which we create and which has no existence without our permission...

Or, closer to Truth - without our choice it could not be ...

 

Why choose it at all?

Why have to choose it?

We have to choose it if we wish to continue to forget who we are ...

And so we keep choosing the illusion as reality

Until it gets so loud - the illusion, that is - that we can’t stand the noise and so scream to ourselves:

Dream Big, Lush, Vivid Dreams

Disappointment is, literally, failing to keep an appointment. Which is why I think it hurts a little more than the other bumps and bruises of life.

When you feel disappointed, you are feeling deprived of something you thought was already in motion. If you’re feeling like you have an “appointment” with a promotion or a successful presentation or a new love, having that thing not work out is especially crushing because it was kind of a done deal inside your mind.

When You Are Stuck Reach Out For Support

When faced with the necessity for change, moving forward requires both energy and a deep rootedness as you make the necessary adjustments to hold your balance. It is not easy to move forward when thoughts about what was and what isn’t begin to knock you off center. Although learned young, walking required the mastery of one primary skill – step by step. We all took falls along the way, accumulating bumps and bruises packed with memories and tears. Some learned early to reach for support – a wall, a hand, even a knee.

Getting-Ready-to-Get-Ready Syndrome

The symptoms of Getting-Ready-to-Get-Ready syndrome include feeling like you can’t possibly move forward until you lose ten pounds, get a degree, receive permission, know the right people, have enough money, get more experience, pay your dues, or obtain the right equipment.

The trick to defeating Getting-Ready-to-Get-Ready syndrome is doing fifteen minutes of research. (And yes, this can be one of your fifteen-minute daily tasks.)

Are There Dishes In Your Sink?

My wife and daughter have been away for almost two weeks and I have reverted to the ways of my bachelorhood. This morning, I was forced to do dishes only because there were no more cereal bowls left. Even worse, I only washed one bowl so I could eat and then put it back on the stack when I was done.
