I've Gone Dark...
A few years ago, I went dark...
I stopped creating content. Went off social media. Sold my business. And stopped chasing 'the American dream.'
I had to leave.
Because I didn't know how to detox from Western obsession with “More"...
Do more. Be more. Achieve more.
More. MORE. MORE!
It was like a neurotic compulsion in my head.
Every time I opened my phone or laptop or checked Facebook, a flood of social pressure came pouring through.
What was *the point* of it all, anyway?
And when would "More" ever become "Enough"?
These questions are like the proverbial thread on your underwear...
...pull the string a little and the whole thing starts unraveling…
So I pulled.
And I started letting everything go…
Instead of building a new business, I traveled the world, studying different spiritual practices. Meditation. Authentic Relating. Tantra. Therapy. And experimenting with a plethora of psychedelic medicines.
Sometimes you need to get lost in order to find yourself.
And that is exactly what I did.
I wanted to figure out what REALLY mattered to me...
What would happen if I stopped seeking validations in the form of money, sex, or status?
Who would I be if I didn’t measure myself externally?
What would I create if I were operating from love instead of fear?
Fortunately, this period of Existential Questioning is coming to an end and something new is ready to be born…
If you want to come along for the ride, drop me a line.
