How can we feel present in our life, and stay that way? In this talk we explore what it means to be mindful beyond trying to remember to “pay attention." Typically, we'll "remember" to be present for something when it is just about to end, whether it's a meditation or even at the end of life. The trick is to remember in the middle! Let's look into how it really works: a practice of mindfulness is setting up the moments of awakening to happen on their own more and more. It’s not about exerting force or pressure to ‘be present.’ Rather, it's being wise about how to set things up in a way that brings attention home, while also recognizing the truth that you are always here.
