Discovery and Inspiration in Michael Brown’s “The Presence Process”

The Imperative to ‘DO‘ …..

Lately, I have found myself feeling ‘squirmy’ and ‘restless’. It is a familiar feeling that admonishes me to get doing something important, to stop squandering my efforts and to cease being lazy.   From the Voice Dialogue perspective, at the core of this unrest lies a cadre of Selves who are invested in maintaining the  imprint of our cultural work ethic that ensures survival.   Their collective chorus stampedes through my head – ” Focus! Get Moving! Create what is before you! Make a contribution! Make a difference! Quit sitting around and doing nothing! ”  Their mantras hammer at my consciousness with ever-increasing intensity aided by the Critic,  “What exactly have you been doing these past few years? ”  “Everyone else seems to be moving forward, what is wrong with you?” The dismal and shame-filled answer from the whaling, blamed child is immediate – “I have been spinning my wheels and getting nowhere fast! I try but nothing seems to stick!”

As if to underscore the urgency of this internal rhetoric, I received an email that announced the 2011 schedule for courses being sponsored by a business similar to ours. In addition, I had signed up for numerous newsletters and e-zines (at the urging of those “do something” Selves)  that shared a dizzying array of tactics for effective marketing, all of which required response ‘immediately’  lest that ship sails without me onboard. It was everywhere – the flashing neon marquis in my head kept screaming at me to get off the dime and make our business into a successful, vibrant and ‘in demand’ entity or risk obscurity and failure.

As I sat with the exhausting discomfort of this and my personal sense of ‘failure to launch’, my eyes fell on  The Presence Process  guidebook. Because I recognized this as one of those ‘integration moments’ that the book teaches, I picked it up and it opened serendipitously at this:

“We realize that we are where we are required to be, and will be there until we come to a point of completion in this particular environment. We know that if and when we leave, the doors of change will open effortlessly and automatically

Welcome ‘the spacious present’ (Eckhart Tolle)

In finding these words, all the ‘supposed to’s’ and ‘should’s’ vanished in a huge exhale.  With an inhale came a shard of light-filled possibility— could it be that all really is well? that all is as it is required to be?    Maybe the inertia has been the germination of  authentic inspiration presenting  in the timing of  Universal perfection! Suddenly, the belief about my perceived stuckness was replaced with an awareness of all the seeds that had been planted in the past few years and sensing that succulent plants were poking their heads through fertile soil.  Inexplicably, my life clearly felt that it was  giving way to much more space….’the spacious present’ (Eckhart Tolle) — ahhhhh!   it really does take your breath away as it opens a doorway into conscious possibility and effortless ‘right action’.  Quite naturally, there was  no need to  grab at another mental concept to fill that vacated space. There was simply an expectant pause of spacious peace and trust that there will be inspiration to move in the most meaningful and authentic direction without having to force, push or control anything.

The Presence Process Delivers…..

On the heels of this realization, surprising opportunities have begun to show up.  The unfolding of a renewed direction is coming into focus. As is the teaching of the Presence Process, that the resonance of presence attracts like reality.  It follows the spirit of  innocence that a New Year offers.

On this first week of a New Year when reflection creates resolve, it seems appropriate to consider how few times we have made decisions in our lives by allowing solution to emerge in the space of ‘now’- free of past or future influences .  More often than not, our actions and choices have been in response to some external requirement or some internal conditioning that harbors past and future experiences.  As I reflected on my own life, I realized that the most life-altering moments have occurred in the space of emptiness that trustingly allows the piloting of the Universal ‘me’. A most outstanding example that comes to mind was my choosing the date for attending The Monroe Institute’s Gateway Voyage residential consciousness program. It was the place and time that I met my husband, Terry and it launched a new path of spiritual pursuits that has absolutely changed my life.  It was a door that opened without effort and presented a new, rich and abundant life path.

Listen to your internal GPS

If there is even one such event in your life that you can recall – a moment of choice that felt  inspired – reflect on its source. Was it a mentally calculated decision or was it a heart centered sense of rightness of action?  How did it feel to experience the outcome?  Use that event to know that its purpose is to form the foundation of faith and trust that you are not required to act for the sake of being in action but  to show you that  genuinely inspired experiences emerge from the pauses between action -that is the present moment wisdom.  It is the most immutable freedom.  Trust that if it happens once, it can happen always.  Listen to it as your internal GPS.  Breathe it in and allow its omnipotent support  to present collaborative, genuinely inspired action. I promise you, operating from this place delivers confidence in motion. It feels distinctly different,  free …and… filled with peace and ease!

May 2011 deliver Presence to you!
