There is no conflict within presence. There is no duality either. You are not split into mind and being, you are present within the moment and conscious of your consciousness.
The attention of the person within the mind is on ideas, thoughts and impressions. Their brain spins a web of loosely connected impressions that they hope will spin into some form of reality, but in the end it all slips through their fingers like sand in their hands.
Thoughts and ideas are like birds that fly about and land on whatever tree or bush that is nearest them. They are never settled and content, flying here and there seeking but seldom resting in the moment.
A mind oriented person is subject to emotional states because the ego chases the mind wherever it goes and tries to assert control within its intentions. The ego wants power over the mind and its ideas. It wants to manifest and control them and be in charge. It never rests until it thinks it has control over the identity of a person and then it wants to control others. Ego’s seldom get along with other egos.
Presence is a place within your awareness where the attention has been surrendered into your being and the mind has been released. It is a place you will come to if you surrender your attention upon the mind and its ideas, thoughts and intentions and simply begin to feel your breathe. It is a matter of letting go of the world created in your mind and embracing the feelings within your breath.
Your breath is the full carrier of the consciousness into the body and the physical world. It is an energy flow from within your being that penetrates the physical world at birth. It is always anchored within your being, but attention to the mind and ideas direct it outwardly into time and space. In a sense it gives birth to your mind when your sense of awareness is directed outside your feelings.
Attention to your breath brings you back to the source of your conscious being and sits you at the door of the gateway into your eternal being. As awareness grows a separation begins within your consciousness as your identity slips its attention from your thoughts back into your feelings through focusing it on the breath. Your presence has then left the world of duality and conflict and embraced the peaceful silence within you where your life began.
You exist in two worlds, but you are only alive when you are completely present within one. You can focus on the outer world and maybe find peace and contentment for the ego briefly, but if you bring your presence and attention to the other you will discover your home within.
