Welcome to Thrive-365.org, a page I created as a Master’s project that I still maintain till this day (though not as consistently!). My goal is to share thoughts, insights and strategies to help make lives better, alleviate suffering, and spread joy. If you’d like to read my original “emo” opening from 2012, read on. Some parts are a little embarassing, but it’s real!
I am a seeker of truths and Truth. I possess an urgent curiosity to become better, learn more, and end suffering for myself and others. This fuels my actions and fuels my life.
I study a lot. I absorb information like a sponge, ripe for the soaking. I have been there – in the darkness and it has consumed me, but not whole. It has not been easy, but it has certainly been worth it.
I’m still finding my way while refining each area of my life. Measuring it up against the truth inside me, losing my way, and correcting course. A very wise confidant once told me that it is not alone a matter of doing the right thing, and not doing the right thing. It is more about readjusting your angle and then readjusting again, and then readjusting some more. Like a rocket going towards the moon, it does not start out in perfect alignment with the moon- it must re-angle time and time again to correct course. As do we.
If Thrive 365 were a book, this would be the inside cover:
We are here to transform. We are discontent when we are the same, do the same, and think the same if it does not align with our true selves. The stronghold of routine and comfort keep us in place, but complacency has its own deep and gnawing pain. We are bigger than our realities, and circumstances. If you believe you may be wasting your life, that is enough to move towards what compels you. Everything can change in an instant, when we set the intention, raise our awareness and move towards it.
