Ever spent time dreaming about writing a damning email to your boss's boss, shaming your boss for all the ways they've made your work-life miserable?
Ever WISHED you could leave 'now' and teleport yourself some place else?
Ever got so anxious that you've felt like you're losing your mind?
A client was just telling me how the thoughts going round and round in their head are driving them crazy; that they're tired of rehashing the past, and trying to envision the future; that they'd like to 'live more *now*.
We got to talking about the crazy space our minds can take us to with wishful, grass-is-greener - if *only* this situation/person/feeling were different I'd be happier - thinking.
And the peace that exists in presence. The peace that exists when seeking something else stops.
Oh, yes, ‘being present’: that's a good one when your mind is spinning out of control and everything about the present, seems unpleasant.
But what if there is actually ONLY presence? What if there is nowhere else?
What if we're trying to run from the present, but there is no difference between us and presence: we are it?
