Finding Presence

Finding presence is not suppressing your emotions. It’s being able to have a compassionate relationship with yourself.

Feeling and sitting with the fiery sensation of anger, adding no thoughts is being truthful about what you are feeling.

Noticing what is arising in you in the moment and opening to vulnerability is a capacity, a virtue to be developed.

Frustration, uncertainty and fear are like clouds and not solid.  Courage is the right arm of presence, self trust it the left.

You need both arms to hold something scary and painful. Waiting in your darkness and discomfort is what helps relax hot energies.

It’s the only way you’ll ever find peace inside.
