Presence is about waking up to the fact that I’m doing this and opening my eyes to what is before me. How beautiful this moment is and how I don’t really need to plan for the next one.
You can be always be present. To your morning, to your coffee, to traffic, to the people in your life.
Presence is about less. Less noise. Less mind-chatter. Less angst.
I’m just chasing my thoughts, anxious, distracted and getting irritated at my brain who just won’t give it a rest.
This scenario is the opposite of being present. I’m sleepwalking, paying attention to nothing, enjoying nothing, being yanked around by things that are largely insignificant.
Take time to smell the roses!
