“Presence” is that absolute quality of Being. It is something that people can “feel” but that is hard to define. One can “feel” a presence even without seeing anything. This “presence” belongs to an energetic dimension. All of my work in “The Way of the Heart : To Be and Not to Be” was developed to help individuals (Human Beings) manifest their true essence and presence, their fullness of being.
This fullness arrives with the simultaneous manifestation of spirit and matter, or the spiritual part of the human (soul) and their physical part (physical body, emotionally and psychologically activated and functioning). The wedding of the sky and earth, mother and father. The Human Being is indeed where the sky meets the earth or where mother and father are wed and become “ONE”.
Presence derives from a fully incarnated spirit, which comes through the breath. Breath brings spirit into the body and if the body is not “full” of one’s problems sufferings, desires and what else, then the breath can manifest consciousness and awareness in the individual. All of this will be further detailed in the near future. For now let it suffice to say that all of this is our natural state and I will include the Poem “soul” which I wrote to explain this “FULLNESS” which is the complete Human Being with his “PRESENCE” intact.
I AM THE EARTH, I AM WARMTH,
I AM THE BEING WHO WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
I HAVE NO FEAR OF DIVISION OR SEPARATION,
THEY AFFORD ME THE POSSIBILITY TO BRING THINGS TOGETHER,
TO UNITE THAT WHICH WAS SEPARATE. I CAN DO THIS,
BECAUSE I AM THE SON/DAUGHTER
I AM THE SON/DAUGHTER OF THOSE WHO WERE SEPARATE.
MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER FIND THEIR PERFECT UNION IN MY BODY,
IN MY MIND AND IN MY SOUL.
I AM BOTH OF THEM AND I LOVE THEM EQUALLY,
WITH ALL OF MY BEING.
I LOVE MY FATHER SKY AND MY MOTHER EARTH.
I HAVE NO PREFERENCE. I LOVE THEM AND ALL THINGS.
ALL THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN CREATED BY THEM AND THROUGH THEM.
WHICH MEANS I ALSO LOVE MYSELF. I LOVE MYSELF AS I LOVE ALL THINGS,
IN THE SAME WAY - NO MORE AND NO LESS.
I AM THE SERVANT - I HAVE BEEN CREATED BY ALL - AND I LOVE
I AM - HUMAN BEING
 This is the true answer to Hamlet’s question. To Be and Not to Be simultaneously. This is the secret to existing in happiness and love. Hamlet’s was a trick question. It isn’t one or the other, “To Be” or “Not to be”, but “being you” as hard as you can and simultaneously understanding that “higher forces” run things and allowing the intelligence of the Universe to have room to act in your life. “I do the best I can” and the rest “happens”. At some point one might even find out that “not doing” in the “little me” way, allows great goings on to happen!!!
