Many people when they are told to recognize the present they have so many pretentious attitude in their head: “Oh, I have to be present, I have to be present. I have to be present.” That kind of a repeating wording in your mind is not going to bring you present. The more words there is in your head that is telling you to be present is itself illusion.
Therefore sensation of grasping has to be abandoned along on our journey as practitioner.
