Joined 5 years ago from New York
As a young kid, I had a strong affinity to Buddhism. I always asked questions like why I am here, what is life and what is my purpose etc. Growing up, I was indoctrined with beliefs that getting a college degree, having a stable job, earning certain amount of money, marrying a success partner, raising a family and all the other very human world "stuff" are the pursuits of a meaningful life.
Fortunately, I did not get too far with this model of life before I fell into years long depression and insomnia. I felt like that life - where I had to relentless pursue after external material success to compete with others, gain approval and validate myself was very miserable. I hated living that way.
In the last few years, I was blessed enough to study with many great Buddhist teachers and spiritual healers who assisted and uplifted me on my spiritual journey. Without them, I wouldn't be where I am today. After years of internal struggles, depression and insomnia, I am a happier being. I have more compassion and understanding for myself and others. I am not afraid to speak up my truth.
To get here was not an easy journey. I recognize that I was blessed and very lucky to have the right guidance to guide me in finding my purpose and light. Many people struggle with alchohol & drug addictions, violence, physical illnesses, depression and mental issues for their entire lives without finding a way out.
I want to write and share my experiences to encourage others to find their happiness, purpose and light.
