"The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post."
~ L. Thomas Holdcroft ~
I believe the most important, most helpful, most evolved life skill we can learn is how to be present; how to be vigorously aware of everything around us, and be tuned-in to our inner energy, and instantaneously and appropriately responsive to anything new that arises.
Presence gives us spaciousness.
Presence gives us ease.
Presence gives us vitality and appreciation and a sense of well-being and the feeling of love.
And presence gives us that thing we long for
that we often cannot name.
Presence gives us peace.
I practice the art of presence.
