I have two main focuses here. Sourcing all the way down the supply chain for a veg block printed clothing collection representative of Gramshree's ethos and story combined with my values and aesthetics- and exploring spirituality. All the while surrounded by warm, loving and inspiring people. It's basically a best case scenario.
Tonight's talk was about "Presence: The Quality of Consciously Being Here"
http://www.awakin.org/read/ "Presence ...is the activation of a higher level of awareness that allows all our other human functions – such as thought, feeling, and action – to be known, developed, and harmonised .. Presence shapes our self-image and emotional tone. Presence determines the degree of our alertness, openness, and warmth. Presence decides whether we leak and scatter our energy or embody and direct it."
The responses varied but all were wise inspired. Even if our minds are elsewhere, our bodies are *here* so in essence we are present regardless? Or can only self awareness in the moment promote the state of being present? Everyone has their personal version of being present, some seemed so enlightened. I hope with practice I can achieve that feeling some day as well.
