Lost  Watch a child play. See how utterly transfixed she becomes with her game. It’s pure immersion; she has lost herself in the world of play.

You used to do that too when you were a kid. But you can’t do that anymore, right?


You were born with the ability to lose yourself. You still have it. It’s one of your greatest gifts because whenever you go there, you are fully in the present moment (the only place your desires manifest).

Hey Honey, Could You Help Me Out?  I’d Like to Get Rooted in the Moment

Legendary comedian Chris Rush once told me there are three things that root you in the moment, as an adult: “great sex, gunfire, and laughter”. I’ll add one more to his list – your conscious decision to go there.

I know you occasionally find yourself lost in an activity.  You occasionally lose track of time and lose your sense of “self” because you’re completely immersed in what you’re doing.  But you can actually learn to lose yourself whenever you decide.

And when you lose yourself more often, your desires are more often manifest.  It turns out that “get lost” is actually one of the nicest things I’ve ever been told.

Why is it so important to get lost in the moment? Because your life is currently often dominated by two pressing illusions that weigh you down like anchors tied to your neck in the deep end of a pool.

Consider Yourself Disillusioned 

What are these two horrible illusions?

  1. The future
  2. The past

You populate the illusion of your future with your fears, hopes, guesses, etc. But the future is a lie – a time-waster at best and an immobilizing fear at worst. The future is nothing but an illusion; it will, literally, never arrive because, when it does, it will be the present moment.

You populate the illusion of your past with judgments, labeling events failures, successes, mistakes, triumphs, etc. But the past is a lie too; the past is gone and it is a distraction at best – and a paralyzing guilt-producer at worst. The past was once a real thing, it was the present moment, but it is gone and isn’t real anymore.

We Call It the Present Because It’s a Gift

Frightening to think you destroy so much of your time and energy focused on these two illusions, isn’t it? (Click that link to Tweet it) And you do waste more time on them than you’d like, don’t you?

I do.

  • The present moment is where all your fun is
  • The present moment is where all your success is found
  • The present moment is the only thing real in life
  • The present moment is where your desires are manifest

That’s why it’s so important to cultivate your decision to get lost.  Because, while you always have the ability to get lost, you probably won’t be inundated with enough “great sex, gunfire, and laughter” to count on them to get you there.
