I have been working with a mindfulness slogan to remind me that the whole world doesn’t revolve around me and my life. In fact, there is no centralized self! “I” am just a dynamic function of the 5 skandhas (form, feeling, perception, formation and consciousness) that isn’t owned by “me”. So, I work with this phrase, “me, my, mine” to remind me to let go of this idea that everything revolves around a solid sense of self.
I have also been wanting to laugh more. So now, I have memorized and sing a few lines of the chorus in Toby Keith’s song, “I wanna talk about me”. and just laugh.
You can hear the song on youtube for free. I don’t really like the video, so my suggestion is to just listen to the lyrics of the song, and laugh.
