“Regardless of Age, I Don’t Know How to Do Me!” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #182
Regardless of Age, I Don’t Know How to Do Me!
I’ve never known how to be me. And now that I have a whole repertoire of experience that points to who I’ve been and who I’ve tried to be, it doesn’t really help. Because I choose to do these podcasts I keep having to attend to the truth of me and how it’s been working for me.
I’m not by any means a guru. I do practice what I believe gurus might practice, though. Why? Well, I believe essentially that they have trained themselves to have a pretty good life, one that is peaceful and fulfilling. That’s what I want for me, and that’s what I want for you!
As part of the practice of creating these Podcasts, I take an inventory quite regularly so that I’m not just talking a talk, but I’m actually walking my walk. I question when and how I’m listening to my inner guru; I question whether that inner guru is actually me. Sometimes I can’t tell. Sometimes I spend time – hours, days or weeks discerning who the hell that is talking with me.
Listening to my inner guru doesn’t mean that life is going to be easy. It just means I have some guidance that is better than what I’d be getting if I listened to my fears.
Truthfully I don’t know who I am and I don’t know what I’m doing. Because I live more and more in the present moment I can only know myself in this moment.
I believe I’m here on this planet to be living my own path one step at a time. This practice requires me to let go of my past and not design a future. I’m not an expert at this. And where I am today is all I can master. The quote, “I am the Master of my Destiny,” really only means that I’m able to be present in this moment with little or no fear of what tomorrow will bring. Is that who I am? Hmmmm. Great question!
