I'm guessing that we share some similarities, some shared experiences, both positive and not so positive.
I spent my adult years up to the age of 30 with my head buried in the sand. Running and hiding from the reality of the world around me. This manifest itself as drug abuse, promiscuity and destructive relationships.
Then at the age of 30 years and 5 months I experienced an awakening. In a heartbeat the entire landscape of my past became clear, I could see the path of causality which had led to these destructive behaviours.
Since that moment I have been on a relentless journey of self discovery and growth, visiting all corners of the earth and immersing myself into various cultures and ancient, esoteric practices.
All of this self work has been with one intention; to forget the non authentic programming I have picked up over the years and remember exactly who I am.
In the last 5 years I've gone from depressed most days, unhappy in my career, a purposeless life and an inability to get control, to a person who does what they want most days, picks and chooses projects to work on and can work from anywhere in the world (current choice is in a forest 950 meters up the side of a volcano!).
The path I have walked is my path, and I don't pretend it will work for everyone, however along the way I have discovered various universal, fundamental truths which, when applied, work every time.
It is my purpose in life to assist in the collective elevation of human consciousness, so I will continue to explore and experiment in the search for gold.
