The true mind can weather all the lies and illusions without being lost. The true heart can touch the poison of hatred without being harmed. Since beginningless time, darkness thrives in the void, but always yields to purifying light....
In the era before the Avatar, we bent not the elements but the energy within ourselves. To bend another's energy, your own spirit must be unbendable or you will be corrupted and destroyed. - Lion Turtle
Emanate Presence means tending the inner landscape (the energy within ourselves) with total responsibility, honesty and accountability. Its main work is letting go of everything from the conditioned mind so the liberated mind can shine. Presence is the creation force. In the liberated mind, past and future run together to create an opportunity for creation from the zero point.
Undifferentiated presence, spontaneously arising before heaven and earth, still and silent, infinite, virtual, eternally present through interminable cycles. It gives birth to the Cosmos, It is impossible to name, so I call it pure boundless immensity.
- Lao Zi, Dao De Jing, #25
