About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Doing one thing everyday that scares me!

ABOUT ME



I am free thinker and day dreamer who loves to enjoy each second and every moment of my life.I live in the now,and go with the flow. I can be so quite when I think of 'nothing' that came up to my mind (just to be sure of what is going on)
I like to live in my own abundance.

PHILOSOPHY

What I adopted from others: you cannot live sheltered forever without ever being exposed, and at the same time be a spiritual adventurer. Be audacious. Be crazy in your own way, with that madness in the eyes of man that is wisdom in the eyes of God.. Take risk, search and search again, search everywhere, in ever way, do not let any single opportunity or chance that life offers pass you by, and do not be petty and mean,trying to drive a hard bargain..: Arnaud Desjardins..

Personal philosophy:

What we see is what we believe possible. What we touch is what we think to sense as an object. I believe there are so many things that we can touch or see or do, if we could convince our mind that a reality comes from feelings of our heart not from our eyes.Besides, I have a blue horse (Noh Samara). We are the only one who can shape ourselves, there is no formula for life and the same as for love and hate.

If you ask me how the day was any time I will tell you that it was perfect! I believe life is perfect. Everyday we live the way we wanted to live. There are so many possibilities to live and if you think that there is nothing you can do (do new) today then go out of your house and run towards some way and at the end of the day you will see that the life you have lived is because you choose to realize the possibility of living it that way.

I enjoy the freedom I get being away from my body and mind. I enjoy every hour I get rest from my thoughts. I enjoy with my abilities of instructing myself to be the way I wanted me to be. I enjoy the 'love' I have created in my surrounding atmosphere. I enjoy living my 'dreams'.

The most obvious and understandable existence in this universe is nature but not human beings. The reason we came to this planet is to discover the mystery of ourselves not nature. When a man wants to be an open human being the best he can do is to try to explain what he himself can not understand.

What makes me myself is what I think of I am. If there is anyone that exactly looks like me is whom I see behind when I stand in front of mirror only -myself
