What does it mean to be present? Being present is more than paying attention to what is happening in this world of form. Being present is being aware of the stillness in which everything arises. There is a luminous quality to this awareness. It is always present, just underneath the surface of whatever is occurring. Try this several times today – stop, be still, become present, and notice the spacious awareness in which everything arises. How does this color the rest of your day?
