Do you ever wonder if the way we’re encouraged to live life is the right way? I didn’t for a long time, but in 2013 that all changed. I was born into a conventional religion, encouraged to get university degrees, start work immediately and then “work hard to make a living and get ahead”. Now, not all of that is bad, but a lot of it isn’t great either.
At university, I ended up getting three degrees (Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D.) and then started working flat-out as a scientist and executive searching out the next promotion and pay raise. There’s nothing wrong with science because it’s important to understand how the world works in order to live in it but, if science is applied purely to seek more and more profit, it’s not so good.
In between 2010 and 2013 a series of things happened to me which began to open me up to new things and new ways of thinking. First, an unexpected divorce made me question everything about life and then a training course on emotional intelligence opened my previously blinkered eyes. I realised that the universe was trying to get my attention and I began to study health and spirituality quite heavily, as well as learning yoga, meditation and skiing.
In 2010, I was in poor physical health weighing about 120 kg and taking daily statin drugs. In my experimentation with health, I’ve reduced my weight to 85 kg (although I’m a bit heavier than that at present) and found that I didn’t need the statins any more.
This website is here to challenge the accepted way of thinking. Much of what we think is normal isn’t. Much of what we do isn’t the best thing for us, even though we’re told it is.
We need to break through the almost constant propaganda and find better ways to live.
Once we achieve real self-awareness and get our health (physical and mental) under control, we can see that there is more to life than we’ve been told and have come to believe. This then leads the way towards spirituality, and this is what the universe was trying to draw to my attention. Now it has 100% of my direct attention.
So, don’t believe everything you’re told and not even everything you see. There is a better way to live life than just accumulate money and secure a retirement. You’re much more important that that. Let’s explore better ways to live, both personally and as a global community, and let’s achieve our real potential. Let’s learn how to live life in the right direction.
