Day to day life, work, relationships, financial matters, pain, illness - they all have a powerful pull for our attention.
The mind tries to cope and manage the complexity.
If all that pulls the attention of our mind were to end, what would be left?
In the absence of thinking, what is there?
Absence - a state of being open, clear, fully present and available.
Presence arises when there is absence of thinking.
Presence is not a thing, it is the space in which things happen.
