Sharing light that shines the way through the darkness.
“Life is not happening to you, it’s happening for you.” – Tony Robbins
Well… My Story is simple… I lived and then I died and then I died again. And it was after my second death that I began something miraculous. I started my journey to just be. It wasn’t easy, Lord God knows it was not easy. I am still on my journey to just be, and yes, along the way there have been tears, and lost friends, and lost ideals, beliefs, and perceptions. I needed to lose those things for they only prolonged my journey. However, along the way I have gained something truly amazing. Freedom!
I am free from the dominion of the things that kept me from being who I have always been, who I have always meant to be, and who I will always be for all eternity – A beacon of hope.
It is our desire that things, suggestions and insights we share with you, the things we have learned along the way and continue to learn on a day by day basis, bring you hope and help light the path on your journey to being who you have always meant to be… a beacon of hop. For to have life means that there is hope.
Meet the Team
Me and You… Me Being Jose Figueroa (aka) The Wise Gorilla, and you the reader. Most people don’t dare to be transparent… I can’t help myself. For right now this is an army of two… me and you! I am sure as this blog grows and evolves I will come across others that will want to contribute to the growth of others and the blog, but for now… it’s just me and you. I hope you don’t mind, I kinda prefer small intimate circles.
What you can expect…
More than just a scientific approach or just a mysticism approach, but a realistic and holistic approach that uses the best from both.
Yes, there will be talks about crystals, meditations, spirituality, clean eating, essential oils, and even activity (OMG… Exercise… are you serious… uhmmm, yes!). Yes, those practices are great but let’s get real for a moment… this is life… and life requires the physical and the metaphysical to work together. We can’t just merely hope that a piece of stone can vibrate our problems away, or if we can clear our thoughts that the problems will vanish, or pray our way out, eat healthy stuff and everything gets better (I mean it will get vastly better – ) Nor can you rub and sniff your way out of the problems we have… We have to do the work. Daily practice, Daily choices, Daily one foot in front of the other in order to see our way out of the forest… At least till we can figure out how to blink and wiggle our noses out of the forest. Till then… we walk – one foot in front of the other.
But most importantly what you can expect is you reconnecting to the spirit of you – the very thing that we forget while living in this physical world – opening your eyes to the possibilities and capabilities of you.
