My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Stop looking. Start living.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I have empathy for all beings. I love people, and I see their beauty even when they don't see it themselves.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. My greatest fear is that people continue to exploit each other and construct dogmas which perpetuate violence and power struggles. This is what I hope my work can help overcome.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I see all things as having a purpose for happening, and even in my struggles (perhaps, especially in those), I've tried not to let regret take root in me. I have felt regret's restriction in allowing Life to function freely. So truly, and thankfully, I have no regrets. The only wish I do have is that I wish I could have more time and more energy to convey my message.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Porridge or Eggs with potatoes...simple and nourishing.
