Why You Need to Practice Getting Lost

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. (Click that link to Tweet it) If you’re anything like most people, you’ve come to accept these illusions to such an extent that they dominate about 96% of your daily thoughts and focus.

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.

    • You’re welcome, Zan. Thank you for the praise.

      And, by the way, you couldn’t see or perceive brilliance if it wasn’t already inside you. So make sure you thank yourself too.

    • Me too, Snooper. Me too.

      It’s a wonderful goal to have and one where I enjoy every moment of successful attainment.

      Thanks for your comment.

  1. I’m a newbie to the “Grow a Greater You” phenomenon.
    Here’s a quick timeline –
    12.Dec.2013; Purchased and read, “PEMF-The Fifth Element of Health: . . . “, by Bryant Meyers. This book, about Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy for better health, led me to (You know . . . [Customers who purchased this book also considered these books] ) led me to the “Why Quantum Physicists . . . “ series.
    18.Dec.2013; Purchased and read, “Why Quantum Physicists Create More Abundance”
    19.Dec.2013; Purchased and read, “How Quantum Physicists Build New Beliefs”
    19.Dec.2013; Purchased and read, “Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Suffer”
    19.Dec.2013; Created a list of the following expectations / desires –
    — Realize a positive outcome to the frivolous lawsuit filed against me.
    — Manifest wealth in abundance for both personal and charitable reasons.
    — Utilize the “Grow a Greater You” phenomenon to lose weight (20 – 35 pounds).
    25.Dec.2013; Purchased and read, “Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat”
    27.Dec.2013; Purchased and began reading, “Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail”
    09.Jan.2014; Continued to read, “Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail” I spent most of my late morning and early afternoon reading, checking email, posting calendar entries, etc..

    I noticed an upcoming calendar entry – tentative preliminary court date of 14.Jan.2014, depending upon outcome of attorneys’ meeting probably to be held sometime the week prior. It was sometime that morning I noticed that entry and wondered if the attorney meeting had taken placed. So I spent several moments telling myself, along with the quantum field, the best and most believable story I could muster. At 4:49 pm, my attorney called. Previously, my attorney would not initiate a phone call such as this one He’d merely drop the necessary papers in the mail and instruct me to call if I had any questions. He’s real good about returning calls, but I would have to be the one to initiate them. Anyway, his message was as follows:

    *** Hi Greg. This is attorney [name omitted], your lawyer through [insurance company name omitted]. I just wanted to call to let you know that the case involving [plaintiff name omitted] settled this afternoon. I’m gonna be on the road tomorrow, but if you want to call, I’ll get the message. [phone number omitted]. Thank you. Bye bye. ***

    WOW!! Settled This Afternoon!! How ‘bout that?! This case has been dragging on for months. I was being sued for more than 92,000 dollars! The last time I spoke with my attorney he felt the trial date would be late 2014 or early 2015. Well, the quantum field had a more appropriate timeline in store for me. Turns out, the plaintiff settled for whatever the insurance company would pay plus a balance due from me of $0.00! That’s right! I personally will pay . . . nothing . . . zero! And no increase to my insurance premium, either. Actually, my premium went down a little.

    I am looking forward to more positive outcomes relating to the, “Grow a Greater You” way of life. Thank you Greg Kuhn for your insight and straightforward explanations!

    • Thank you so much for your detailed timeline, Greg. And what a fantastic name you have too!

      I love reading what you shared and I’m honored to be given the opportunity to help you remember and reunite with the power and influence that is all yours. With much more to come, I assure you.

      Miracles like that, the type that knock you off your feet (in a good way), have become commonplace for me. Not that I take them for granted, mind you. Yet I most certainly expect them and believe they will happen.

      This is the path you’re on too! What an exciting ride it is. And every time we grow into the next grandest version of ourselves – guess what happens? We get new desires which allow us to keep on playing this beautiful game.

      I’m currently working on my next book – Why Quantum Physicists Love to Play “Grow a Greater You”. You’ll have to cool off your eyeballs while you’re reading this one 😉 It is just that hot!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to share your successes with us. And please keep sharing; energy like yours is contagious.
