When we communicate with each other from this “real” experience of presence, we are able to expand our identity to one that is more spiritually unified with the world around us. We can be in a sense; freer to be who we really are at any given moment.Frustrations readily disappear from our present moment when we focus on just being in each other’s presence – as a gift, from God. It is when we begin to alter our impressions with the “what ifs” or the “could’ve” or “should’ve” or “hidden agendas” racing through our minds, that we no longer are surrendered to the gift of the present moment.
So, how do we remain tuned-in to this present moment, at all times?
When we turn our focus away from controlling the outcome, we tend to be more relaxed, open and feel more loving – even when things don’t go our way. Presence brings us into a state of harmony and unity with the rest of life. When we are simply (and authentically) present, we tend to become less concerned in our self-image or who we think we are.
