     An ordinary accepting presence is an extraordinary accomplishment given that we are trained to not be satisfied and to seek more out there and then, not here and now.  We can engage in an insightful rest by being present, being aware of what is happening now inside of me and outside of me, in me and between me and others.  Simply being present is underrated.  And it is restful in that it simply is being aware, not analyzing or striving or interpreting or trying to get to a particular outcome.  It's restful in that it is being, not work, and it generates insight.  I sometimes am in that state, and when I am it is enlivening as well as restful.
