To be present is to be in a state of consciousness where you are fully aware of your own mind and what is behind your thought processes in this moment, in this place. It is to accept the present, without worrying about the past or the future. Many center their spiritual practices to practice living in the moment, as it is the only moment in which we are alive, as a way to be closest to the Divine. Others use focusing on the present as a way to alleviate anxiety, stress, and grief. Still others use their practice to connect better with others and practice with others. Whatever your motivation, there are many approaches to practicing being present.
