In natural rest, we give it all over to presence.
Notice what’s here. Allow it to be as it is. Notice it’s already noticed. Notice it’s already allowed.
Notice the space it’s happening within. Notice the presence it’s happening within and as.
When we give it over to presence, we are really just noticing and acknowledging that our current experience – all of it – is already happening within and as presence.
Another way to say this is that we are giving everything over to God. In this case, God means the presence that’s already here, that’s everything we experience, and inherent in what we are.
A variation of this is more of a second person relationship to God. We give everything over to God through intention and prayer. I give everything over to you, God.
- give it all over to God/Spirit/the divine
- sometimes all we can do when it’s overwhelming, intense, are chess mate
- how do we do it?
- natural rest, notice + allow, give it all over to presence,
- pray, say “I give it all over to you”
