Existence is naturally spiritual so choosing Presence allows for one to come home and although the mind will often wander, having a Presence direction will keep one from remaining lost.
All of life is a spiritual path and this is so even though a person may not be aware of it. When one does become aware of this, it doesn’t mean life becomes all that much different, but what does become different is the view of life and this makes all the difference in the world. If your stuck in the trance of unconsciousness it’s very difficult to see from the perspective of Presence, and without developing this one remains in the trance of unconsciousness. This is the trance of the world (form) it’s also the trance of suffering. It manifest in many ways this trance, but its base is in the form the world presents. I’m this, I’m that, buy this, use that, attain this, go here, go there, win this, learn that, and on and on. It’s the way of the world which is form and it’s the way of suffering because you’re held captive to what the world makes you think you need.
The only way to break this is to constantly choose Presence when you notice you’re in the trance of form. Since our existence is naturally spiritual, choosing Presence allows you to come home and although the mind will wander more often than not, with a practice in place to choose Presence, when it does wander it gives you a direction instead of being lost grasping for something that the world of form makes you believe you need to be home. Home is where the heart is and in choosing Presence that’s where one will live more often than not, that is as long as Presence is chosen.
