The presence process is essentially the increased involvement of the immortal soul consciousness in our daily mortal consciousness life. The immortal soul consciousness is full of intelligence and accumulated experience from past lives, as a sequence of images and flash-backs to past lives, and is therefore better equipped to deal with the mortal emotional and bodily experience of our daily or life-long mortal life. We are more interested as spiritual beings, in the way that our immortal existence represents and perceives the world we experience rather than the world itself as an external entity. And the spiritual advantage is that we have the free will to re-arrange our experiences and even choose them from the world. The material time of the visible material physical world inherits a causality sequence to our mortal experience of our lives. But the soul consciousness has different and more than one time-physical-causalities that go beyond the visible physical reality to higher invisible physical realities, and even non-physical realities. Therefore the degrees of freedom in perceiving and changing and even choosing our experience through our immortal soul consciousness is higher , when we succeed to transcend the visible physical reality time-causality of events and our experience and reaction to them. This higher degrees of freedom may be enclosed to the wording "respond versus re-act". The reaction usually involves a duality and a limited sense of time-causality while response involves higher eternal-like causalities.
Exactly because of the transcendence of time-causality of the visible physical reality, it is wrong to talk about present time awareness, and it is correct to talk about immortal consciousness presence awareness.
When experience our life, through our enhanced self as immortal eternal soul consciousness, our perception of self changes, the experience of our ego changes, the experience of the flow of life changes, and its quality is higher ; And what is more remarkable is that what is internal and what is external changes too, as well as the causality of the changes of the experience of the flow of our life.
The perception by the eternal soul consciousness need not to be mental only, and is easier when it is from the heart.
We may believe that the sequential time causality of the physical visible reality is responsible for our sequential states of experience of life, and thus attribute external to us causes of e.g. our emotional states. We may call this "horizontal-external" causality. The term horizontal derived from a time-line say from left to right horizontally placed in front of us. But the eternal soul has its own causality, which we may call "vertical-internal" causality. The term vertical derived from the idea of many hidden layers of the world, as if different parallel time-lines, above the previous from left to right and going from lower height to higher height in front of us. These different time lines that represent causalities of deeper layers of the world and of consciousness may of vastly different units of time and each time line may not be able to project to a different time line in a way that the causal order is preserved. Different invisible frequencies of physical realities have different time , causality, and different psychology of natural human abilities. For example in a higher frequency reality as human beings we may not need to eat to take our energy, and we may have miracle abilities. The eternal soul consciousnesses substitutes the world with its perception of the world. So the external may become internal too and vice versa. Only after we "pretend" we are responsible of our own states of mortal experience by the "vertical-internal" causality of the immortal soul consciousness , this different causality is activated, and changes our mortal experience of life and e.g. our emotional states from within not from outside actions or events. This enhanced internal ability to change the mortal experience of life, permits higher quality of the mortal experience of life. And as we are spiritual beings, when our experience and perception of the world improves, the world improves too.
Part of the immortal soul presence process is that when we are in the state of experiencing the presence, the presence seems ubiquitous connecting all beings that we perceive. It is the property of the soul consciousness to connect with all other souls . But the unifying field of all beings is not only our own soul but also the soul of the other beings (humans , animals, etc) tuned with what connects everybody. We may speak here about it by saying that the collective field of the souls is more than the sum of all participating souls. Some call it the over-soul, others called the collective existence etc. The more we are aware of the presence of our own soul the more we are aware of the presence of all other souls too in a unifying soul consciousness of the world.
I believe that the meaning of the presence process (it should be called so and not present time awareness, as in the presence process all known visible reality time is transcended including past, present and future) is not to passively accept to experience again the anger or sorrow, but to find antidotes involving not only actions or thoughts but inner emotional and bodily methods. This may have nothing to do with what mentally we have decided what is right and wrong in the situation, or what actions may prevent these feelings, but it has to do with enhancing our ways of dealing with it so that it will not affect seriously negatively the body. Actually it may give an opportunity to the mind to find new perceptions of the situation , that may transform e.g. anger in to powerful peace without having to pass through sorrow. As with joy that there is good joy(=being joyful because the right thing happened) and bad joy (=being joyful because the wrong thing happened, malevolence malice) , so there is good sorrow (=being sad that the wrong thing happened) and bad sorrow(=being sad that the right thing happened).
And here is another article, where it is suggested to love our anger, and understand that it can be both ways, it can create a dangerous electrical energy situation for the body, or detonate a dangerous electrical energy situation for the body.
