Tibetan – Authentic presences
I got this from the meditation class in Des Plains
“The Buddha walks into the office”…
Posit: An authentic presence attracts others as your state of being inspires themselves to become authentic.
Determination! This attracts others, as they perceive it. Some see it as confidence, some as purpose, others as power, faith, mission…
This will drive some too help you (friend), and some to hurt/hinder you (enemy), but everyone present will react in some way, to the degree of their care. All sentient beings float between wanting things to stay the same and wanting things to change.
