A lighthouse doesn’t run around the beach to find a ship to rescue. It stands serenely on a high cliff and lets its own light shine. Is happy to help in case someone notices the light. Doesn’t mind if no one pays attention.
I open my light. I am totally present. I know others will calm down and join the field of presence. And then everything is possible.
When you’re in peace with the present moment, you’re never alone. The Now is a true friend.
Alert presence is a creative state of being, becoming sensitive to a certain future – and therefore presence is a verb.
(reflect alone) How do you make peace with the Now? (start dialogue) Where is the best place for you to learn more about being present?
