I got into self improvement when I picked Viktor Frankl’s book ‘Man’s search for meaning’ almost 20 years ago. Since then I’ve read lots of books on happiness and self improvement. I’ve studied philosophy, positive psychology, Buddhism, meditation, tried shamanism, psychedelics, holotropic breathing, sound healing, yoga and other consciousness expansion techniques. I blog and write on Quora about ways to become happier now.
I first worked on overcoming negativity, then finding myself: ’the universe cannot be completely itself until you become completely yourself’ (Loner Wolf). ‘Work on yourself to become a higher rate of vibration. The only option is to work on yourself’ (Ram Dass). I looked for joy, purpose and now work on becoming nobody. As I do that I aspire ‘to assist all sentient beings in their awakening and enlightenment’ (NY Times). Specifically, help myself and others have more self-love, be less lonely, more happy and less afraid of death. These are the main themes for this blog.
I am ‘interested in knowing life beyond the horizon of conventional understanding; yearn to fulfil my role in the awakening of humanity; or wish to integrate my energetic sensitivities into a life of inspiration, happiness, and freedom’ (Matt Kahn).
What is happiness? ‘Happiness is finding peace and being OK with life exactly as it is’ (Mo Gowdat). ‘The whole dance of your life is the training in which the universe is teaching you things which are bringing you toward the One’ (Ram Dass). Let’s go.
Put others first.
