Being present involves no action in order to obtain presence for in so doing there is a perpetual temporal gap between the decision to find and the intended object of finding - the verb and the noun. We can even attempt "not to act" which is an action in itself and contains the same temporal gap. It is this vacuous impasse in which we are found where nothing we do our don't do can make the slightest difference that takes the greatest courage to accept. The immediacy of life is not ours to grasp or create but it's authenticity is marked always by immediacy, surprise and novelty. Another word for "immediacy of life" could be "grace" in its etymological form - the Greek "Charis" means "spontaneous giving" where there are no conditions involved in the transmission of gift to receiver and where there is no distinction between Giver and Gift. All is one spontaneous "yes!" and "amen!"
