Jean Klein states "because meditation is your natural state, Presence is." Presence is your real self. Silent awareness of Presence is meditation. It's an abiding in Presence. Meditation isn't trying to accomplish something or get some where. It isn't trying to stop one's body or mind functioning. Meditation is going past one's body and mind and into the oneness of one's real self. For me, awareness occurs in living stillness, and awareness makes for change. Awareness resulted in the undoing of my conditioning. I didn't consciously undo my conditioning or try to undo my conditioning, it happened with awareness, openness, and allowing. Choiceless living is living without making any intentional choices. In choiceless living, I suspend my freedom to choose and allow myself to simply live. The freedom to unfold found in choiceless living and the freedom to choose are reconciled in that I have the freedom to choose choiceless living or not.

So very interesting about choiceless living perspective. Life, just IS, and we are the observers and can find peace in each moment if we do not strive to always be changing things around us. Things will change as they always do on their own.
