Here's my take on it:

Presence = (true/absolute) Success

(True/absolute) Success may or may not bring about form-level/relative success...

But, if relative success doesn't appear.... who is it who minds it not appearing?

Does Presence mind?

Agreed, but you missed the point of this thread. No one's denying that presence is absolute success and the other kind is relative.

This thread is about the relationship between those two types of success, and about pointing out that, unlike what Eckhart claims, the relationship between the two is not as solid in reality.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification.
