Presence is Absence


Presence is Absence

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, but continual thinking and feeling seems endless.

But if all that were to end, in the absence of it all?

What would be left to pull our attention?

Absence of everything - a state of being present to all that does not pass.

Presence arises when there is absence - absence of that which is experienced in the body and mind.

Presence is not a thing, it is the space in which things happen.
