Is there anything more valuable than presence?
Actually BEING here. Experiencing life. Rather than experiencing what we “think” about life; what we think about the past; our future thinking…
Presence. It’s so fundamental. So easy to overlook.
And so important….
When I am present, I feel more alive because I’m actually experiencing life itself.
When I am present, I am expressing myself authentically. And that feels fulfilling. (And I tend to feel more confident that my presence actually has value in the world.)
When I am present, I tend to be more grateful for life. I feel more compassionate to myself and others. And my actions/decisions tend to consider the impact not only on me but my community and the earth.
Presence is valuable. Perhaps it’s the foundation of what makes anything in life valuable.
At least that’s what I experience when I practice presence. Try practicing for yourself!
