What is your definition of happiness?

 

I would say that happiness is when we are in accordance with ourselves and with everything around us. That translates into a feeling of peace and harmony, and this feeling permits us to access the best of oneself and of others. A happy person can be distinguished by his luminosity, which brightens his path and reflects on all those around him.

What do you think of the current state of morals and values?

 

There are large differences between each culture but let’s say that in general, the situation is troublesome. We are witnessing a terrible decadence, whether at the level of education, entertainment, and living with one another. All one has to do is to turn on the television to realize all of this. The information we are given is nothing more but a propaganda tool aimed at creating division between the masses. The entertainment programs have taken a dominating role and demean man not just as a mere consumer, but as a consumer product itself. It’s no wonder that human relationships can be summarized more and more as sterile discussions and exchanges with very little depth.

What event prompted you to commit yourself this way, and what has this commitment brought you?

 

Having always been curious of the unknown, and always being very attentive to others, I’ve always lead a very full life, both culturally as well as spiritually. It was after a few of my many travels that I told myself that it would be interesting to write books and maintain a blog, which would allow many other people to benefit from my experiences. The many testimonies and messages of encouragement I receive, confirm to me that this project was not just a good idea but indeed a life project.
