The State of Presence: Liberation from Programming, Conditioning, and Beliefs

BY Marc Mathys
Our minds are constantly filled with thoughts, patterns, beliefs, and conditionings that have been ingrained in us over time – some through personal experiences, others through societal norms and expectations. Yet, the state of presence, often hailed as a gateway to genuine mindfulness and self-discovery, signifies an absence of these programmed responses. In this blog post, we’ll explore how entering this state can free us from the shackles of our conditioning and beliefs. 
The State of Presence 
The state of presence refers to being fully aware and engaged in the current moment, without any distractions or preconceived notions. It’s about perceiving reality as it is, not through the lenses of our past experiences or future apprehensions. This state is often associated with mindfulness, meditation, and other practices that encourage a deep sense of self-awareness and conscious living. 
Programming, Conditioning, and Beliefs 
Our brains are remarkably adaptable and have been molded by our experiences and social structures. This includes our beliefs, which are often shaped by cultural, societal, and personal expectations, and our conditioning, which is the learned response to certain stimuli based on past experiences. This programming can influence our thoughts, actions, and perceptions of reality. While some of it can be useful, much of it can limit our perspectives and hinder our ability to adapt to new situations. 
The Liberation of Presence 
When we enter the state of presence, we can observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment or interference from our programmed responses. We begin to notice the difference between the reality of the moment and the narrative constructed by our conditioning and beliefs. In the state of presence, we can see our conditioning for what it is – not an absolute truth, but a learned response. We can observe our beliefs, not as unalterable facts, but as assumptions that can be questioned and changed. By cultivating this awareness, we can start to disentangle ourselves from these automatic responses. This doesn’t mean ignoring or discarding our past experiences or beliefs but rather understanding their influence and choosing whether or not they serve us in the present moment.
Entering the state of presence is like pressing the pause button on our mental programming. It provides an escape from the constant chatter of our conditioned mind and offers a space where we can experience life unfiltered by preconceived notions and beliefs. 
The path to presence is a journey of self-discovery, challenging us to question what we have been taught to believe and encouraging us to form our own understanding. It’s about realizing that we are not merely products of our programming but conscious beings capable of change and growth. 
By embracing the state of presence, we can liberate ourselves from limiting beliefs and conditioning, opening up a world of possibilities where we can truly live in the moment, fully engaged, fully aware, and fully alive.
