“I have noticed my generation (90’s) and new generations, are totally missing the spiritual dimension…”
…they have replaced this dimension with parties, din, drugs, Saturdays nights, and alcohol.”
“The result is people who cannot stay in silence anymore and can’t appreciate the invisible vibes.”
“In the past, spirituality has always been an extremely important part of our lives…”
“…but we are on our way to losing it, so I would like to bring attention back to it.”
“Mine is a message for who is missing a spiritual dimension, inviting them to take care of their interior and cultivate it.”
