Finding the Presence

Being in touch with the Universe, here and now

When we’re consciously present here and now, we’re larger than our separate self, we’re the one universal self in all of us.

This one self is consciousness in the Universe, the conscious intelligence in all space. It’s transforming itself into the biochemistry of our human body so we can experience being alive.

This inexpressible conscious space in all of us brings experiencing into our lives.

We’re not our thoughts about ourself, we’re the one conscious space in all of us that’s giving rise to thoughts.

We’re consciousness in the Universe appearing as human beings.

When we pay attention to this conscious space, it dissolves us into itself and brings insight and intuitions emerging from it into our awareness.

Consciously realizing the inner space helps us enter into the stillness and silence of this cosmic presence and bring its clarity and wisdom into our life.

As we tune in to the field and evolve our awareness, we can begin to see ourselves as active participants in the evolution of conscious awareness in all of us.

Active participants in this evolution because we’re joined into the intelligence of the living and conscious Universe, the cosmic intelligence that’s transforming itself into all life everywhere.

Tuning into the presence of cosmic intelligence helps us intuitively realize that it’s continuously transforming the energy fabric of itself, making itself visible, touchable and knowable as all of us and everything around us.

The visible Universe is coming into being in a flow of continuous emergence, as cosmic intelligence vibrationally transforms itself into the clusters of energy fluctuations which appear to us as the flowers, trees and human beings of our world.

Cosmic consciousness is becoming more awake to itself, experiencing life within trillions of living beings throughout the Universe.

In a streaming flow of emergence, from the non-visible to the visible, cosmic energy and intelligence are being transformed into the interwoven orchestration of living-cell biochemistry, becoming observable as our own human hand.

When we inwardly focus our attention, we can begin to soften the boundaries around our separate sense of self, dissolve our ego slightly and realize the intelligent awareness of the one conscious space in all of us everywhere.

A conscious, cosmic awareness is continuously transforming itself into everything and everyone, and we get in sync with it by inwardly focusing our attention.

We can then more clearly hear the intuitions and insights emerging from this universal consciousness and access its transformative power.

Each one of us is an unlimited cosmic intelligence transforming itself into the living form of a human being for the duration of a human life.
