“Existing fully in the present means to simply place your attention fully on whatever is being attended to at the moment. You effectively become a silent witness to whatever happens or arises. By remaining in a state of alert awareness, you are the watcher of life, no longer a reactor to it. This produces a profound spiritual pleasure, which is lasting and replaces the shallow pleasure sought by the pain body seeking to gain satisfaction from its addiction to drama. Since most of us have not been aware that the mind is compulsively focused on past or possible future events, it may take some practice to simply do one thing at a time; however, I do not mean to suggest that more “future” is needed to feel becalmed. Right this moment, reading these words, let it become your world and you are one with the present.”
