“I Don’t Like Being Told What to Do” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, Podcast #199

I Don’t Like Being Told What to Do As we age we don’t want to give up our freedom and independence, which often means that we make choices that perhaps are not in our best interest. Here’s an example: I haven’t been doing my daily energy routine, and even after only two days I can feel the effects. Damn it!!! I hate doing things I don’t want to do! I’ve been like this my whole life! This is probably a foundational element, not only to the way I live my life but the way I coach my clients – to

“Simplicity of Living Comes with Practice” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #198

Simplicity of Living Comes with Practice I love the sparkles of snowflakes falling. I love the wonder of the stars in the sky. I love watching the sunset and the sunrise, if it’s not too early. These have always been aspects of life on Earth with which I’ve found bliss. There are also many aspects of life that with age have become not so fun, not so interesting, and I just can’t be bothered by any more. This intention of this podcast is to all the question, Who Am I, to inform me of what’s of value in my life.

“Crisis of Meaning Crisis of Faith” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, Podcast #197

Crisis of Meaning, Crisis of Faith Though I’ve experienced a lot of major accomplishments in my life, I live as if I’ve not really accomplished anything important or of merit. Though I’ve finished my PhD, sailed across the Atlantic Ocean, written 13 books, and done lots of other stuff, and, though I’ve loved a lot and made some really hard choices in the name of love, my inner world, as I experience it, says that I’ve not amounted to anything. It may sound incredulous, but I feel as if I’ve not yet accomplished that one thing that will make me

“Why Stick Around?” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, Podcast #196

Why Stick Around? Human life is so complex. The truth is that we exist in so many dimensions. We have past lives, parallel lives, emotional lives and spiritual lives. So who the hell are we, and why do we do this thing called Life on Earth? Each of us have our own answers to those questions. Each of us have our own curriculum. No two of us are on the same trajectory. We are alone on our personal quest, along with eight billion others. That’s funny, though mostly, it doesn’t feel funny at all. It feels scary, insane, and, a

“What Have I Got to Show for My Life?” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, Podcast #195

What Have I Got to Show for My Life? I have no doubt that each of us face the existential question of: What Have I Got to Show for My Life? It’s a big question that goes along with: Have I fulfilled my heart’s desires? Have I made a difference in the world? Was I loved? Did I love enough?

We see how we really couldn’t

“Be True to You!!” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, Podcast #194

Be True to You!! I’ve been asking myself some really hard questions lately: What is the ultimate motive underlying everything I do? What is the purest intention of my life? What is my heart’s desire? How did I come to choose to see myself and the world around me the way I do? These are questions we all ask ourselves in some way or another.

Doing is the Undoing of Me As I get ever closer to creating 100 podcasts, I wonder if I’m done with these podcasts on Aging Like a Guru. Is it time to stop? Do I want to stop? Should I stop? Should I continue? There are a lot of emotions that arise as I face this arrival at 100 podcasts.

“Where are the Elders Among the Elderly?” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #191

Where are the Elders Among the Elderly? We generally expect that as people age they would cultivate character, wisdom, maturity, right But, the fact of the matter is, most of us don’t. Most of us are as we were in our adolescence. Shocking? We may cultivate more ways to avoid, ignore, distract and deny life as it is, so that we don’t have to really grow and stretch ourselves, which means that we can’t truly be elders for the younger generations. It’s not that we don’t want to be elders. We just haven’t had a culture, at least in the
