What it means to present

Spiritual teachers and sages throughout the ages have always talked about true knowing as being one with all existence and experiencing that oneness through being present in the moment through full awareness. Brian Swimme in this video clip looks at the same phenomena from an astrophysicist’s and cosmologist’s point of view: if there was a Big Bang, then we all are one with everything because we all and everything are composed of the same particles and energy that existed at the smallest imaginary moment of the beginning of the Big Bang and therefore do so now in the universe. This sameness is still unfolding, at least in the dimensions of time and space, and in stillness we can observe this unfolding process as well as the underlying sameness. And people like Jack Kornfield takes the quality of this observation process a step further by saying that the awareness in the moment of being totally present and love are the same, which makes presence being love.
