Into His Presence do we enter. In His Presence do we have our very Being. His Presence is all that exists, because He is All that exists. So you are not separate from that Presence.
Even if the surface of the lake is turbulent with wind whipped waves, the bottom of the lake is perfectly still. This is Presence. You have perfect stillness and holiness that is within you, regardless of your outer circumstances, problems, experiences, etc.
Presence is the thread that is carried throughout all life, all existence, all that we call "reality." It is what gives essence, what gives meaning. If you are searching for meaning, discover the diamond within you, the Presence within you.
Have you ever been fully still, been fully in the moment without your thoughts being in the past or future, and felt the Presence that is in that moment? Have you ever marveled and cried at the way a snowflake dances down from the sky in pure joy. It is experiencing pure joy, because it is unique amongst all snowflakes, unique amongst Creation, a unique expression of God .... as are you. You are not separate from the snowflake, the tree, the clouds, anyone or anything. This realization --- that you cannot be separate from Presence --- is what gives you the greatest joy, peace, and safety.
Those who laugh at themselves and their circumstances, those who stay in the moment, those who are innocent like a child -- and Jesus said you must be like a child to enter the Kingdom of Heaven --- they have found the thread of Presence. This "reality" is just a dream, a learning ground for you, and for you to help others, to discover Presence. It has no other purpose other than that, and when you assign it another purpose, you are missing the inheritance God wants to give you.
