The biggest gift you can give yourself (and the people you care about) is knowing who you are. This is especially true as you come to know the Presence within.
Presence is the state of being which is at the very center of who you are. Not far away, not hidden, Presence is what awaits anyone who has the ability to journey through the personality layers that cover it. It is the home of the true self which has been calling you your whole life. The way in is not complicated, though the lessons of the journey can be challenging.
The keys are already in your hands.
As Presence is remembered, felt, and trusted, a new world opens. A world of knowing the magic of your being, and allowing that magic to interact with the people and world around you. Here you find genuinely creative ways of relating, based on an alternative foundation in Peace.
Presence knows itself as whole, as good, and with clear eyes for seeing in the present moment what is being revealed. This stands in contrast to the normal experience of personality, which is always based in memories deficiency, insecurity, and the like.
With a relaxed heart and clear eyes, a sense of fundamental goodness easily offers itself into the world around us. This offering is our magic wand. It touches the world around us in ways that also bring forth the goodness in them. Our presence offers other people a respite from their personality, it invites others into the living goodness of who they really are.
Simply put, when we offer personality, we get the personality reflections coming back. We see the bark on the trees. Not much nourishing contact happens. When we offer Presence, we allow people to release the bark of old memories and discover the present tense goodness of what is here now. Magic happens: an innate sense of connection turns on, friends materialize, co-operation is willingly offered, and Life shows itself as friendly, good, and supportive. In this state we can be taken on journeys of discovery, journeys of Truth, journeys where love becomes even more articulate, more precise.
