You can't aim for presence - or even complete inner peace - and truly get there. For true presence is beyond any kind of identity or intention - including trying to get there. Immediately you try to do so, you establish separation from it within - you are that which is trying to get to presence. You could access a kind of quasi presence, which kind of feels like it, but usually this is based on denial - simply blocking out certain experiences. The best way to presence, for me, is to align with the soul - the sense of rightness in the moment, whatever that is. This connects you all the way back to the source inside, from where the soul arises. Without trying, you drop into presence.
