Do You Want to Live in a State of Presence and Peace?
A certain amount of casting about and seeking about for a time is part of this life, especially for people called in this way of meditation.
But the the swirling chasing seeking can go on for a long, long time,
while that unsettled and dispersed inner turbulence you feel can settle quickly when you are presented with the point of it.
Have you been?
Maybe it’s time to inwardly call off the outward search,
and admit that there is a presence here in you that you can trust.
It seems to the thinking mind that we can resolve these things by sorting through everything out there and finding the right technique…
And that’s almost workable to a limited extent…
But it will never be complete…
Because that which you are seeking is not out there.
You are what you are seeking.
And nothing in this world is closer to you than you.
So please do stand in your truth.
This is important, and it’s totally doable,
and it’s whatever it is that you sense and intuit is You, now.
Stand in that. Look from there.
Everything will sort itself out, without you having to try,
when you seek from there.
Don’t trust the serpent thought “where? what is it?”
or “others see it but I do not,”
“I’m not there yet”
The only thing in your way are those thoughts.
What is finding?
Finding this is nothing more than not believing those thoughts.
Those are all just thoughts, postponements.
There is nothing to see.
It’s not you, plus something.
It’s you, without something.
Without doubt or looking about for something that you need.
So just sometimes, call off the search, just remain as you are.
This is the inner teacher.
Spend time with it.
The one who seems to choose to spend this time
and the teacher, You, steps forward more.
The one who seems to direct attention to the heart,
appears more deftly, as needed,
and the heart beats its silent insistence more lively
The one who seems to have to battle
to defend the presence against confusion and kidnapping
steps forward when needed
and doesn’t when not
The one who seems to have to choose
will do that choosing as appropriate
and do it freely
more spontaneous and fresh
less calculated and planned
because, You can never truly be lost.
You are here.
You are what you are seeking.
It’s time to step up, and choose the inner teacher,
time to choose You,
time to, perhaps, battle for that.
Defend that as needed.
And other times let yourself roam at home in the world
safe and free,
because you always have at least one eye on the beloved,
and much of the passion of the search is burning warmly
close at home in the heart.
Let's face it. There are many ways you could attempt to become more present in your life, less reactive, less lost in disturbing moods and troubling thinking. I've found that....
Getting increasingly drawn into the undercurrent of joy that is already present in you...
actually harnessing your natural attraction to it,
is the most surefire way to ensure that attention keeps coming back home to the heart
and you become rooted in a life of presence and peace.
That root is totally available to you. It just takes some exploration of how to access it and how to preserve it.
And that's why I've created for us:
Variety and adventure is often missing in mindfulness, but not in Meditation Forest where you learn how to sink deep roots by following your own natural feelings that attract you effortlessly into deep meditation.
Meditation Forest is now opening for new members, and Alan Klima will be offering a full step-by-step program to teach you the direct, organic practices of awakening being in a forest full of meditation courses covering everything a passionate person needs to deepen their focus and get a consistent practice in place.
You Can Awaken
and step into the organic meditation process that takes you
into a whole new experience of feeling alive.
Alan will personally lead you in a journey

with live telephone calls, a private forum, and months of instruction and guided videos and audios to make sure this happens for you!
Each module has 8 new and unique guided meditations
plus extra instruction and discussion:
"The meditation course with Alan was a pleasure, a respite, and opened me up to noticing things about myself that were sitting in plain sight. I feel happier, more aware, and more noticing of the joyful in my everyday life.”
"Since starting my meditation practice with Alan, my life has become more peaceful, more enjoyable. Meditating with Alan has taught me to see things in a different way: to know life can be lived with a form of kindness towards oneself and others that I had forgotten was there. Being present in what I’m doing now, knowing that nothing can break what I feel deep inside, allows me to be happy, to be content with things as they are. This does not mean giving up on my life aspirations or not facing difficulties, it just means being able to be present for my life and celebrating what is here now."
"Alan's teaching has created a different kind of space in my life. It provides a place where I can distance myself from my negative thoughts, a space from which I can start to look at things differently, calmly, kindly. This often helps me be more at peace with myself and those around me."
Chapel Hill, NC
"My best and deepest meditation experience ever. This teaching was the best gift life has given me. I hope everyone gets the chance to be open to receiving it too."
Port Douglass, Australia
Meditating during the challenges has resulted in a greater sense of peace, acceptance, and well-being for me. Ten to thirty minutes in the morning made a huge difference in my ability to self-regulate throughout the day. Thank you Alan for doing this!"
This was the push I needed to stop wanting to meditate and actually start trying it out! Alan's approach is clear, engaging and gentle, and I was happy to start to experience the deep effects instantly, even while in the very beginning stages of learning.”

I found that through this journey, I was able to listen to my body and thoughts. More importantly, I came to the realization that even when my mind seems to be thinking of a million different thoughts, I can remain calm and without feeing the need to keep thinking them or act on any of those thoughts."
Alan's style of meditation is a really great way to begin. Making a regular habit has been really hard for me but I did it this time and by the 10th day I wouldn't have wanted to miss it.”
I liked the feeling of everyone doing this activity together-apart, and learned a lot about the variety of experiences of meditation and what it can be good for. For my own part, I think this experience helped me gain a sense of calm in my work day with much less drama and flailing than I've had in the past. This translated into my family life as well. I was pleasantly surprised to be able to have a calm conversation with my partner on a subject which I've never yet been able to discuss without a lot of emotional upset.”
The best gift of meditation with Alan has been a new life without fear. I remember from very early age being constantly afraid of many things in life, from concrete ones like being bullied at school to very abstract ones like failing to achieve my dreams. With time, fear became second nature to me, so I accommodated it somehow. But after I began my practice with Alan I was able to break down my fear into smaller thinking bits that come and go without much affect. Becoming aware of fearful thoughts, knowing that they aren’t greater than me, and they can only dwell for a short while in my mind, changed my life completely. Life feels different, more quiet and peaceful, less blurry and intimidating. I still freak out from time to time, but fear has little traction now. I am deeply grateful to Alan for pointing me to a much profounder experience of myself.
You can imagine that launching something as big as this has a lot of moving parts! You can imagine how helpful it would be to have some people get settled in early. So I'm very grateful for the members who sign up today, before the deadline. And, I want you to be 10,000% sure about your choice!
