I thought I finally got what the PURPOSE and meaning of my life as an artist is: to bare my soul, share my struggles and epiphanies, to bring hope and inspiration to those who are searching and seeking, just like me. Who isn’t?
I remember many years back I was a young teenager and I got to hear the late Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist Viktor E. Frankl – a concentration camp survivor – speak at the university in Graz, Austria, where I went to a specialized high school for music students. He was one of those amazing human beings who just gave you chills when speaking and sharing about his life. His school of psychology called logotherapy is all about finding the PURPOSE for our life. We can find it in anything – even sickness. In his book “Man’s Search for Meaning” he wrote “…Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” This is a man who found meaning in surviving the concentration camp, so he could write a book when he got out, and he said – I heard it myself – that is the only reason why he survived. He didn’t give up. He had meaning in his life in the most excruciating circumstances one could ever imagine…
My wish and dream is that it will empower you to follow your DESTINY and your dreams!
Maybe this blog is the beginning of my book, which I wanted to write to accompany my DESTINY album since 2011 🙂 My life philosophy is IT IS NEVER TOO LATE, for anything! What actions are you going to take in this new year to get closer to your DESTINY?
