Hey, I'm Stefan
Like you, I'm a human on the path of Self discovery through experience.
I'm focused almost entirely on the discovery/development of my dharma and creating independent wealth through the unique service of others. I seek time and financial freedom to tackle creative business projects ad nauseam.
I used to be driven by my curiosity of how to hack life to get the best of it. Zen, speed, education, empathy, observance, enjoyment, achievement, spirituality, impact; I view each of those, and more, as the portals they are into different experiences of Self.
But now my focus has shifted from experience to understanding. My fire is most stoked by learning the Truth of who we really are.
It'd be my greatest gift to share the awakening I've had of our inner truth with the world around me, knowing that it equates to a quantum leap in our personal evolution.
I dream of a world awake. & I hope one day to see you there.
Things I Stand For
The acceptance of flaws, mistakes, and behavior of others.
Reducing meat consumption in observance of the inhumane treatment of animals and ecological impacts of our industrialized food system.
Working to clean our oceans of plastic waste and reducing overall ocean pollution.
Psychedelic assisted therapies for anyone experiencing mental disorders or recovering from trauma.
Reforming education so that we teach kids the skills needed to excel in life.
Re-training and education programs funded by taxes for displaced workers.
Making STEM sexy so more of our youth can aspire to be a great thinker instead of a great entertainer or athlete.
Letting banks fail if they are in danger of doing so.
The decentralization of money.
Racial and gender equity, not homogenization of differences.
Love in all its forms.
God exists as everything that you perceive as reality, including yourself.
The greatest investment in human progress lies with therapy and education.
Smart people who don't experiment with psychedelic drugs grossly limit their impact in the world.
If you're curious about ayahuasca, do not hesitate to experience it given the opportunity.
People that desire to have few kids or none are most likely the people that should be having more.
Almost all video games are a waste of time and potential.
Book reading/listening is a key habit for success.
Fasting is a necessary discipline. Those who do not fast miss out on strenghtening the mind and body.
Because the capitalist machine disproportionately rewards machine behavior in humans, like hours worked, output, and profit maximization, it is a dangerous entity to turn into a God.
Almost everyone should strive to know more than one language.
Social media platforms NEED to have a protocol for account abandonment so that a username is freed after some long period of inactivity and missed reminders to keep it. They can be assigned a random username.
The drinking age in America should be 20. Not 21, not 19, 20. It's far enough removed from high school and one is no longer a teenager by definition.
Colleges should require a down payment and refuse admittance to people coming straight out of high school.
Days would be more simply understood if comprised of 12 hours, not 24. An hour is painfully fast.
Weeks should be 9 days long. three work days, one off, three work days, two days off.
Asking me to pay $60 for a regular coffee mug is asking me to subsidize a lifestyle that the free market won't afford.
Color changing light bulbs are the easiest way to improve the mood of any room.
I live in south Florida. I am a Gemini. Family is important to me.
I'm always happy to change my mind about things, including the things written here.
I'm an American, but seek to be a world citizen.
Bi-lingual (Spanish); conversational (limited) in Italian.
Really looking forward to being a dog dad. One day..
