While practicing presence there have been some recognizable milestones that may mark progress … It’s tricky to discuss presence tho.
Meditation had a draw … Did help cope, recover, and progress …
A few times … It felt good.
Internal Results … A few instants of presence?
External Results … Animals began to notice and responded differently than usual … And still do.
Internal Again … A certain ‘feel’ sometimes noticed in the body and the mind when all pieces of practice were happening.
Latest Internal Difference … Inside one of those successful present moments it became less ‘some state’ to ‘reach for’ amd more just another way of being … A normal place you just relax into … When it happens, not so hard a slide … Very, very comfortable … Might become a place you’d rather be …
“There” yet? … Who knows?
