This is what is meant by the biblical verse....
"Absent from the body, present with the Lord" - 2 Corinthians 5:8
It means let us be absent from our thoughts that we have conjured up ourselves within the mental realm and being present in the moment as Present Moment Awareness, in which we become a channel for the true Self to flow through our beingness into the world, blessing all creatures great and small.
In this way Cause and Effect come together as One. The I am of mind, is a pure reflection of its true Self that is Spirit (I) being Soul (Am).
I am that I am.
