In this introduction to the practice of Instant Presence, from the book Instant Presence –Allow Natural Meditation to Happen by Enza Vita, we simply rest in a natural, effortless way without manipulations or strategies.
We take a break from making anything happen or not happen. We are not trying to be anything or anyone, nor attempting to change or accomplish anything. We are just resting in what is happening moment by moment.
At first, we may only be able to rest in this aware presence for a few seconds before we are distracted by thoughts. Every time you get distracted, simply bring the attention back toward awareness itself.
Relax into this aware presence many times throughout the day, during formal sitting meditation or while you are doing chores around the house, taking a walk or any time you think about it. Continue to be aware of this aware presence, which is your real Self, and soon the distractions will be a thing of the past.
