So presence is the difference between pain and suffering, and being present is simple, but not easy. This is where the power of support comes in. It helps to have help.
Having support in the process of learning to be present is helpful so that we don’t have to experience the overwhelm alone. We don’t have to know how to suddenly be masters of being present with our pain without having someone to learn with.
Having support is helpful because an outside observer will notice things that we ourselves can’t see, the less obvious ways that we distract ourselves from the present moment.
Having support is helpful because my being in presence invites your presence to come forward. It’s simply easier.
