Eminem is known for controversies, chart-topping hits and being in the tabloids for a variety of reasons. Even people who hate rap music know the artist.
His iconic hit ‘Lose yourself’ has mindfulness lessons built into it, apart from being a celebrated motivational track for more than a decade, as acknowledged recently at the 2020 Academy Awards.
The lyrics of Eminem’s iconic track ‘Lose Yourself’ begin with paying attention to how one is feeling, without judging.
It is also imbibed in the lyrics to understand that inner turmoil exists silently inside, even though the outward physical composure appears normal. By embracing the inner turmoil we move to ‘full-catastrophe living’.
At any given moment, the inner voices of hope, anxiety, regret and expectations are always there. According to Eminem’s simple but profound lyrics in his song ‘Lose Yourself’, our past embarrassment and future worries are tangled up in our heads.
We are one tiny ego in a vast and abundant universe and don’t matter as much as we think we do.
Losing ‘yourself’ isn’t about getting lost, as the initial impression of someone listening to the Eminem song. It is about losing the mental voice that keeps telling us that we should do this or that, or we suck. Lose Yourself does not mean losing yourself, but means losing your self, that is your ego.
Mindfulness is misunderstood as an escape from reality to somewhere else. The rap song is providing the biggest message about mindfulness, to be in the present moment fully.
