Presence

Where do thoughts comes from?

Where are they located in space?

When you go deep inside of yourself you will notice that you cannot find them there.

Your thoughts do not seem to be located inside your body.

You are in every thought, but the thoughts aren’t in you. When I refer to “you”, it isn’t your mind nor your physical body. But rather your presence or being.

When you are present in your thoughts, you are there to witness what is happening there. When you are present in your physical body, you are there to experience whatever is in its physical reach.

You can see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. You can experience many sensations.

Who are you?

You are presence itself.

You need a space to exist in. You are always somewhere.

You can be present here and there and everywhere. You can also be at different places at the same time.

You can be totally lost in thought or you can be totally immersed in the body. Or be in both places simultaneously: partly in the body and partly in thought.

But to have a complete experience, you need to be completely in a single place at a particular time.

To experience the physical reality of this world, you need to be in your physical body.

You are presence. Your challenge is to be aware of yourself.

How present are you right now? Are you totally here? Or have you wondered off in thought?

What do you see?

What do you hear?

What do you smell?

What do you taste?

What do you feel?

How is that experience?

Enjoy the sensations.
