What is something easy and simple that we can do right now to make the world a better place?
Take action with empathy in mind because we are all connected, maybe not in so obvious ways, but it is a fact that we share one earth, and we are one family, empathy opens the doors to a higher understanding of our human goals.
What would you say has been the biggest benefit from meditation?
Inner peace but remember we have around 150,000 thoughts a day, but not all of these thoughts are useful, many of them are altering our perception of the present moment and taking us away from life, our true life is happening in the now, we call it the present because it is really a gift to be present.
In our life, we are time travelers inside a spaceship, and we are traveling all the time to the future. Every second is different, and we have the the opportunity to look out the windows of our spaceship and enjoy each second of our space travels, or we can go inside our spaceship and dwell with each room of the spaceship. Each room may represent our past or our future, and by dwelling in them we are missing all the fun of looking out the window, which would be the window of the present (the here and now.)
What is the biggest challenge you had to overcome? How did you overcome it? And what lessons did you learn from it?
The biggest challenge I had to overcome is fear, 7 years ago my daughter was kidnapped for 3 days in Mexico, and I had to have inner peace to overcome the horrors of the moment. That inner peace helped me to gather the strength and faith that everything would be all right.
I and many others made choices while we were in the state of meditation and within this inner peace space, to overcome this very, very difficult moment. From this I realise that we are here to learn inner peace. Inner peace is gate way to many other things. From that inner peace you have higher perspectives and make choices that can benefit not only you but others.
When you think about happiness, how do you define that for yourself?
Happiness is an emotion that comes and goes, but inner peace can be always there, this is better than Happiness, but in my life music has played a big part of that happiness and joy, and when I have inner peace, music becomes a direct communication with the divine.
