Know My(Thy)self

This is Lundie’s life, yeah? So, who is Lundie?

The best way I’ve found lately to figure out who I am, is to stay as best as I can in the current moment. Staying in the current moment means letting go of history (past Lundie), and not letting myself “borrow worry” from tomorrow (future Lundie).

This process requires a lot of attention. Attention to the here and now. It’s super hard for someone like me who lives a large portion of her life inside her head. This is my unattended brain:

So what do I do? Well, I’ve spent time lately listening to Eckhart Tolle. It started with his book (for me it was the audiobook), “The Power of Now“. Then I moved on to Pema Chödrön’s audiobook, “Coming Closer to Ourselves: Making Everything the Path of Awakening“.

So far, it’s been really exciting. Sort of like I’ve decided to just “wing it”, but with a little more groundedness and trust that I’ll figure it out one way or another. As I get more experienced in catching myself mentally wandering into the past, future, or other “not here” place, and re-centering, the more I am loving life. Right now is the only place I can do anything anyway, why would I want to escape it? As I said before, being mentally “not here” is the true “MO” of “FOMO”

So, that’s it for today. I’m getting to know my today self, and she’s pretty cool.

Love and peace,
Lundie
