In the past 15 years, I lived and work in 6 different countries all over the world including the main financial capitals. In most of them I ended up starting my own businesses, investments and ventures but the main reason behind my journey was the search for a much deeper meaning in life. At the age of 18, I came across a powerful Japanese spiritual mentor that also teaches about the wonders of the mind and endless possibilities.
At that time, I didn’t quite understand in much depth but a few years later, I took off in my journey around the world and made up my mind that if I don’t get it done now and face the unknown, nobody will do it for me so my life can never really change as I want. We all have so much potential locked up within us just waiting to come to the surface but being wasted every day. I had to learn to speak 5 languages along the way in order to survive and make the difference initially for myself.
Life in general is far from easy especially when you go after your dreams. When you work, and live in so many different countries, you start to wonder what is really driving you to take such risks and face all sorts of challenges into the unknown.
I eventually came across a few more mentors and interesting people that gave me more meaning, total new perspective on how to really improve my knowledge and get things done.
That was the turning point and what was missing in my life. Knowledgeable and effective people! Masters who knew what I didn’t and had all sorts of powerful materials about all pillars of life. I had no idea that such life changing stuff has been here for so long but only a few people know how to find and benefit from them.
“We don’t know that we don’t know.” That’s huge and one of my favourite quotes!
No matter how much I believed I already knew, I only came to realise that I knew nothing and how far behind I really was so everything changed. I started to tap into a much higher level of understanding of what’s really governing us and what is behind all human achievements. We’ve been denied!
All we do has a purpose and meaning in life but we can hardly understand them while struggling to survive. I had no time to complain no matter how hard it seemed to be but to keep telling myself that my fears were just another tool that will help me to build the life I want. Having moments of fear and doubt became a powerful fuel that was always feeding my dreams and leading me to new places every time almost like something pushing you forward and giving hope.
When you think you know enough and that your life is good as it is, think twice and start to really question your beliefs. That’s my advice! Satisfaction is what stops us from growing in all aspects of life so no matter where you are, keep learning as fast and affective as you can. “Face your fears and know that struggle is just perfection in progress.”
I felt the duty to share with you as an example, how my journey started, the mentors and lessons I came across that can change anybody’s life for the good. Let’s stand up and get stuff done so not only you but the whole world can benefit from it. Always have in mind that You, Nature and the Universe are one single unit but with different purpose and levels of vibration so it’s also your duty and responsibility to contribute more to others.
“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”
~ Leonardo da Vinci
Scientifically it’s been proven that, we are physically made from the same elements, molecules and matter created in a massive star explosion (supernova). How could it even be different? The mass gets so compacted by gravity and fusing all elements until it gives away creating all building blocks necessary for all physical existence.
Similar principle applies to the nonphysical or spiritual universe which completes the physical one and bond them as a single unit. It’s all the same energy and vibration at different speeds that branched and transformed to all we know today.
It’s all connected in all levels but it extends beyond what we can comprehend at this present state of awareness we find ourselves in.
This plane of consciousness is yet to expand but what we can tell for sure is that evolution will continue to do its job so do all other forms of existence.
All we can do is try to understand how it works and work in harmony with it.
If that’s how it all works in a basic general analysis, it may become clear that we have within or in fact, we are the creator itself capable of being, doing and creating everything we may desire within nature’s bounds.
Knowledge, awareness and connection with the governing forces, is what will determine our level of creativity and capability.
