Re: Your personal way of becoming present

Thanks for sharing all. I have found that incorporating presence in my daily activities serves me well at this point. I That's what Eckhart recommends as well. Makes sense to me since the idea is to infuse presence into every moment of our lives. That's why I'm not taking up meditation currently. (Y...

Re: my thoughts - please comment or not

Thanks Andy. I realize what you're saying. Currently motivation for me comes on the thinking level. Realizing how things are in reality seems to be a worthy cause.

Re: I've never had a girlfriend and am still a virgin...
