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.

Whatever your motivation, there are many approaches to practicing being present.
