Getting From Here To TOTALLY Here!

March 6, 2019 by Comments

Screen Shot 2015-03-16 at 1.02.54 PM A couple of years ago I was taking a walk and listening to a podcast with Tami Ross of  interviewing Lama Surya Das on her program, Sounds True: Insights at the Edge.

Last night I found myself walking, ruminating over a challenge and how to move forward – and the podcast and message came to mind again.

Lama Surya Das said that life is about getting from HERE TO TOTALLY HERE. Just another way of saying, live in the moment, right here right now, be in the now, etc.

What would my life be like if I REALLY lived from HERE TO TOTALLY HERE instead of striving to get from here to there? Where the hell is there anyway? I seem to keep getting to “there” and then “there’s” always another “there” to get to!

I love that he didn’t just say from HERE TO HERE, he said it’s about getting from here to TOTALLY here. I interpreted TOTALLY to mean that all parts of us, body, mind and soul, come together in hereness, in totality, and then as such become ONE with the presence of life, the all that is.

So how do you get from here to totally here? Well, for me, today, I’m going to continue to repeat this phrase, use it as a mantra every time I start thinking about the past, the future, and all the “theres” that I am focusing on.

I ain’t THERE yet….but watch out, cause HERE I come.…:)
