What Is It Like to Be You?

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, I'm going to

offer you a question, one that will

hopefully drop you more intimately

and deeply into the present moment,

especially in connection with yourself.

The question is, what

is it like to be you?

Just notice how that lands

for you as you hear it.

You can connect to it in this moment.

We each have a felt sense of

what it's like to be ourselves.

It's a sense that only

we have and no one else.

We can tell other people, we can try

to describe it with words, but they

can't know it in the same way we can.

And so in this moment,

what is that felt sense?

Walt Whitman said, "I am large.

I contain multitudes."

It's true.

We have many different

dimensions to who we are.

Parts of us that might be sad, parts

that might be joyful, parts that are

grateful, parts that are resentful.

And these parts can express in

different moments, but a lot of

times we tend to suppress the

ones that are less comfortable.

And so this question is an invitation to

connect to the fullness of you right now.

And that's the key piece of this.

What is it like to be you right now?

Not tomorrow or what you want

to be, not what it was like

10 minutes ago or yesterday.

But in this moment, what is

the felt sense of being you?

As you go about your day, this is a

question that you can connect back to.

It's a way to help create more space

around our experience, to connect

more intimately to our moment

to moment internal experience.

Very often were disconnected from

ourselves or turning our attention

outwardly, focusing on other people

or other things, but here we're

turning the attention inwardly

and we're doing it with curiosity.

The beautiful thing about

curiosity is there's no judgment.

It only seeks to understand, to

see more clearly, to get closer.

So see what it's like to drop this

into your awareness throughout the day.

We'll explore it a little

more in our meditation.

As always, thank you for your

practice and I'll talk to you soon.

Take care.
