Be Wakeful of Your Presence

Written by Master Charles Cannon


I invite you to be wakeful of your presence, to be conscious of your existence in this very moment of its happening. In case you haven’t noticed it, in all the years of your life, you only ever exist here and now in the present moment. Therefore, the present is the gateway to presence. Can you be present here and now in this nano-second by nano-second happening of life that is your existence? Can you aware of your existence? Can you be awake and fully alive?

Can you just be in this very moment? If you are conscious of your existence what does it feel like? How do you feel existing here and now? Existence … life … is an energy, a life force. The holistic energy of relative reality vibrates. Your existence, your life in this moment, in and through your physical body is but a vibrating energy. Can you feel your existence as vibrating energy right here and right now? Can you be wakeful enough, conscious enough, that you are actually aware of your energetic existence?

If you are wakeful of your existence in any moment, you are experiencing your very own presence as vibrating holistic energy. The more you stay focused on your presence the more alive you are, the more whole you are, the more full you are in the experience of being human and you have a more truthful perception of reality. So, what is the experience of your presence? What does life feel like? If you consciously focus upon life, it reveals its nature to you, and the very nature of existence, of life, of consciousness, is joy.

It is a self-contented energy … happily, joyfully delighting in itself for no reason. The very energy of life—your presence—is blissful if you remain focused upon it and wakeful. This is the secret of all the sages and masters of all the great wisdom traditions of humanity. They remain wakeful of their existence. They live in presence, moment by moment, nano-second by nano-second. They live within the blissful consciousness that they are, that all is. Then it expands and increases! So let us endeavor to maintain the wakefulness of our presence here and now. I am … all is … one!
