About Me


Whatever their future, at the dawn of their lives, men seek a noble vision of man's nature and of life's potential. After some years of working experience and studies I want to travel and meet other cultures and people


Born and raised in the most beautiful city of Belgium. After travelling in Asia for 1 year I decided that I needed a carreer and life change. Quit my job, applied for a 1 year visa in Canada and I`m now very curious to see where my intuition is going to take me. I like to inquire and get inspired by interesting people. Don`t look backwards...just keep on walking


- Whatever their future, at the dawn of their lives, men seek a noble vision of man's nature and of life's potential
- Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away
- The life of a human being is an opportunity to enable us to move forward from bondage to liberation. To transcend bondage one has to know that the fundamental prerequisite quality is to engage in inquiry. Those who never enquire about the nature of life are missing the opportunity to know about life. As one grows spiritually, one tends to think about higher things an so does not get trapped and lost in materialistic matters. The purpose of life is to realize the inherent bliss and tranquility within. As this awareness is felt we realize that the rat race we were in to active power, riches or fame was really so insignificant. No wonder it provided us short term happiness which has left us with a void feeling. The answer to the meaning of life is within us and in the journey within. Life starts providing answers as we take the beautiful journey inward. As soon as the true being shines in us the radiance beams a warm glow which accompanies us. This is the process of moving from bondage to liberation.
