That presence thing was not invented by Robert. It is central for all
teachings that deal with consciousness and reality. Bennett and Gurdijeff
(Robert's teachers) taught it but they learned it from Buddhism and the
Sufis. It simply means that you have to be awake, not busy with 
in order to be a good musician and to live a real life. Of course this is
only the beginning.
