True growth comes from moments of self-realization. These peak experiences shatter the confines of our minds and extend us further than our perception previously allowed. My hope and intent for this book is that it will help you to move forward on your personal path and to experience more of these occasions of awakening, realization, and enlightenment. To make fulfillment your permanent state, to leave meaningful worth with you wherever you go, to bring ultimate awareness to your everyday experience. To encourage and trigger more of these moments of deeper fulfillment and lasting worth, all chapters provide short, easy-to-read contemplations, each followed by a question to ask yourself. Every contemplation is intended to provoke thought, to frame a thought process for its accompanying question. This is your journey and now is your time.
After growing up with lack I became successful at the age of 23 owning my own restaurant and nightclub. I eventually sabotaged myself because I was unsuccessful internally. I became addicted to drugs and lost everything. I was nearly homeless in 2011, had no money or even a car and in January of 2012 I had a profound spiritual experience where I connected to the oneness of all life. I was left with a deep sense of unconditional love for everything and everyone. I went into deep meditation for almost 4 years and wrote the insights and realizations that came to me during that time. I rebuilt my life from the inside out and am now in the top 7% in my industry. I got back 10 times the material things but more importantly am enjoying deep, loving relationships in my life.
