 “So often today, we think that yoga and meditation will bring about a sort of plateaued happiness state, and that that will on some level equate to presence. Almost like a materialism, but a materialism in a different way. In fact, this restfulness is something that is lived. We don’t have to do anything, except for remembering what’s already here. It’s like a soft abiding. We’re not trying to avert from one thing or crave for another, but instead receive life as it is. In that availability, life can present itself in so many different ways, because life does. It offers us such a plethora of experiences, flavours, and manifestations. Yet, amidst that, there can be an unchanging abidance, and that’s what we may call presence.” - Tiffany Nicholson-Smith
