I'll do my best to answer that question for you by describing my own realization of being, here it is:
Being is simple; it is the original state of innocence/simplicity; the state that some people call intuition, which is simply your inner sense, that sense of inner knowing without any interference from discursive thought or emotion. Unfortunately this is an inadequate description, ha, ha . . so I'll continue . . .
Being always has been, always is, and always will be. It has no beginning and no end, it is therefore, eternal.
The conditioned self, the personality with its sense of individuality is the complication; it is what has been added to that original innocence/simplicity.
The mind of man is an entanglement of the original state of innocence/being, what I am, and the conditioned personality/individuality, what I think I am but am not.
I have realized that what I am is not complex at all, but that what I thought I was before I realized that I am being, was complex.
I dropped the complexity; what I was not.
I'm speaking of the conditioned person who was a seeker of something that could not be experienced because I already was this 'Be-ing' that I am.
All I had to do was let go of what I was not; but this I found to be extremely difficult and required a period in my life of seeking what I thought I needed, only to discover eventually, that I've always be-en!
Oh how I laughed at the absurdity of it all.
In my experience there is no right or wrong way to realize a greater truth-reality-integrity of being, although there are many so called paths that seem to keep leading people in circles . . .
For me the secret was in seeing what was false within my self and letting go of it. I'm not suggesting that is the only way, far from it . . .
. . . but moment by moment, day by day, month by month and year by year I dropped the false conditioned personality/individuality from my psyche. And gradually Be-ing, the real, shone through and finally stood alone as this Eternal Now Moment.
My own realization is that The Eternal Now Moment and Be-ing are one and the same, which is why I say that I am Consciousness or Present Moment Awareness or Being; take your pick, but please understand that words can only ever serve as pointers.
I have discovered that there is only one moment, The Eternal Now Moment, it just appears to the conditioned mind that there is more than one moment, or a chain of moments; but our reality is that everything is experienced in this moment as it unfolds, here and now.

Sometimes this seems impossible for the conditioned individual or personality to grasp and come to terms with, and understandably so. This truth, this reality can only be experienced by dropping, or moving beyond, what I am not. And what I am not, is that very conditioning that one calls ones self, which is the persons sense of individuality.

In truth I, Doug McMillan, have no reality whatsoever, there is no one here, only Presence, Consciousness or Being unfolding as all form. That is all that resides here; that's it . . and everything simply unfolds through that being-ness.
There is only one moment, one being, all else is ignorance.
Now, for what it's worth to others, that is my realization and the message unfolding through me.
