What is Presence?
Presence is your true nature. It is beyond the mind, ego and personality. It is Pure Consciousness, Absolute Reality and Limitless Light.
Presence is the felt experience of the Self, as Silence, Stillness and Bliss. In Presence you feel a Oneness with everything - with all life forms and the Universe. You come to realize that there is no difference between yourself and everything that exists.
You experience Presence by becoming aware of the present moment; by asking who am I at the deepest level; by simply feeling the Presence in & around you and by surrendering your ego to your real Self. These four approaches all take you into Presence.
Presence is a mystery to your mind because it exists beyond it. Hence in a mystery school you learn how to manage your mind and ego and how to surrender both to the Self.
