“Not Everyone Wants to Be Responsible for Their Lives” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #190

Not Everyone Wants to Be Responsible for Their Lives Without taking responsibility for your own wants, needs, feelings and thoughts, you, me, and us, end up being told what to do, what to have, what to think, to feel and to want. Life will not show up the way you want, or the way I want, unless we take responsibility for the level of self-awareness we are currently at. We have to willingly step into the practice of observing, witnessing, experimenting, and experiencing life as it is, not life as its "supposed to be." Join me if you dare to

“What to Do When Someone Dies” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, Podcast #187

What to Do When Someone Dies This podcasts is a great summary of what we need to consider before we die, and perhaps before our beloved parents, partners, or children die. No one wants to think about this topic, however when death arrives, someone will have to make choices – tough choices, sometimes hugely expensive choices. To consider and choose now can bring about more peace when the inevitable death does arrive. Through this exploration I realized that there are many choices available to all of us that we may not be aware of. Like, for instance, did you know

“Deconstruction of the Life after Death” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #186

Deconstruction of the Life after Death Living in a small community, on an Island no less, we’re constantly aware of the passing of people. And with the passing of my friend Virginia and others, I’m aware of what it takes to deconstruct the lives of others. For children, for family members and friends, the task is inevitable – what to do with stuff! It’s like someone threw a party and then left without cleaning up! I’m not one to enjoy cleaning up other people’s messes. I believe that’s part of why I coach people to be accountable and responsible for

“People’s Death Affects Us More than We are Imagine” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #185

People’s Death Affects Us More than We are Imagine We are affected by people’s departure more than we know. We are often surprised, even though we know that everybody dies. And often we experience regrets and guilt for not engaging with the deceased more while they were alive. Anytime I hear about someone’s passing I’m moved to experience the reality that every one of us dies. Compassion, reverence, and significance of each person’s presence on this planet brings a moment of awareness if you will. It brings emotions and thoughts, grief, regrets, sometimes anger, and feelings of powerlessness. Even though

“Get Organized Before You Die – Who Me?” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #184

Get Organized Before You Die – Who Me? My friend Virginia passed about a week ago. She was a great contribution to people’s lives in so many ways. She’d been a psychologist and advocator for people’s well-being on so many levels. She certainly was a gift of joy, love and generosity of spirit until the very end. For the past number of years, after the passing of her partner, Virginia lived alone. One of the cool things about Virginia was that she realized that in the end she’d need to count on her friends to settle her affairs after her

“Fear of Living, Fear of Dying – Maybe Both!” Aging Like a Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #183

Fear of Living, Fear of Dying – Maybe Both! I find it an interesting question to ask people, “Are you afraid of living?” When we adventure forward in life, we will undoubtedly face many things we have no interest in facing. Facing loss, annihilation, humiliation, rejection are some of the biggies. Courageously living in your truth, though phenomenal to experience takes a lot of strength and conviction. Why the heck did we come into these Earthly forms in the first place? Good question. Joseph Campbell said, "Where there is a way or a path, it’s someone else’s way….” I have

“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,

“It’s Not If you Die, it’s How You Face Your Inevitable Death” Aging Like at Guru – Who Me? with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #181

It’s Not If You Die, It’s How You Face the Inevitability of Your Death It is said that Japanese Samurai warriors reminded themselves of the inevitability of loss by using the phrase, "Die before going into battle." This practice allows a warrior to enter combat without fear of death because he has brought himself to the acceptance of death ahead of time. Because death is an inevitable outcome, and by accepting the absoluteness of that inevitability, the warrior fully gives himself to his mission without concern for survival or victory. Tracy Goss wrote a book called The Last Word on
