Last week I spoke about the difference between being Present and being In The Presence. Earlier this month, I talked about the benefits of being Present. Last week, I only talked about the difference between the two, as well as the lasting effect being In The Presence has on you.
So how does one Practice the Presence?
There are so many ways. Each path has its own particular ways, but all paths have the basics, e.g., prayer and meditation. There are so many different forms of meditation that books have been written about them and, of course, there are different prayers for different people.
Meditation, prayer, chanting, service, observance and contemplating are some of the ways I have practiced being in The Presence.
For me, meditation is going within, focusing on our Light (our Source); praying is repeating words or songs/hymns in private or public; chanting is repeating the names of God or a mantra in a group or privately…out loud or in silence; serving is helping and serving others who are immersed in God’s work, e.g., washing dishes, gardening, etc., while keeping your mind on God; observing is keeping the Holy days sacred; and contemplating is always thinking of God in all that we do.
These are some of the ways that I have enjoyed being in the Presence of God. It would be a joy to hear from you about your experiences of being in The Presence.
The light in me acknowledges the Light within you.
