The Creative Power of Presence
“When you take your attention into the present moment, a certain alertness arises. You become more conscious of what’s around you, but also, strangely, a sense of presence that is both within and without.” Eckhart Tolle
Reading these words draws me ever more deeply into the Now.
It’s a subtle yet immensely significant shift to gather my focus whenever thoughts about projects and priorities gain momentum and lure me into infinite future possibilities.
Returning to the present moment feels blissfully like coming home to my Self, and when the alertness naturally re-surfaces, I’m able to re-establish presence as the sea in which I anchor my actions once more.
