How do I come into presence? (Eckhart Tolle)
Eckhart Tolle (Feb. 16, 2019); Crystal Q., CC Liu, Wisdom Quarterly
How do I step more deeply into presence?
QUESTION: Can you explain more about the "surface" of the present moment [mindfulness]? How can we go deeper?
ANSWER: The "surface" of the present moment contains the external forms we perceive with the physical senses -- any of which can serve as a tool for stepping out of the thought stream. We get beneath the surface by becoming aware of the still, alert, and unchanging background in which our perceiving occurs.
