The Creative Power of Presence

August 13, 2018

“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.

A State of Being

What feels so significant to me about this particular quote is the fact that Tolle directs your awareness to the sense of presence that is simultaneously within you and seemingly outside you too.

Ultimately there’s no difference between the two.

His words act as pointers to the realization that the state of presence is not just an intellectual concept; you can’t just think about being present and expect to experience the transformation in perspective it provides.

Presence is a state of being that you experience and feel (and increasingly Know at every level) through which the true nature of reality is revealed as the Source of all things – including you!

The Paradox of Presence

The paradox of presence is the inherent stillness that blends seamlessly with the spontaneous and eternal arising of the creative impulse of life itself.
That blend of tranquillity and “aliveness” is where you discover the true creative power of presence.
