Our Stories Become Our Lives with Daniel Levin – The Guru Please Podcast with Jessica Sun

Our Stories Become Our Lives with Daniel Levin

We are all connected. Stories and fables and archetypes can reveal more of who we are. The biggest mystery in our lives is the discovery of who we are and why we are here, and to learn how to connect with others and learn and listen. Here is an incredible story about someone who sought the answer to why both of his parents passed away when he was a child.

Daniel walked away from an opportunity to run a billion dollar business to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace. He lived as a monk in a monastery for 10 years, and he is the author of The Mosaic, a fable whose premise is that you are one connection away from an entirely new opportunity.

Quotes to remember:

“It isn’t the amount of time you spend in your practice, it’s the amount of practice you give to your time.”

“Every single person has a story that they can tell you that can actually change the entire way you see the world.”
