Course #16 is about Presence – in this Course we’ll discuss what it means to live in the present moment. In life there are only patterns of aliveness and patterns that block aliveness. Aliveness depends upon presence. In every moment your attention is either in the past, the present or the future, and it’s there consciously or unconsciously. Presence is a gift you give yourself. You only have power in the present moment. The past and the future can be very seductive. But you can only live and act in the present. How powerful you are correlates with how present you are. Meditation is a potent tool to cultivate being present. The benefits of being present are innumerable. Commit to cultivate ever-greater levels of presence.
