About Me

     When I was 17 years old I began a heartfelt and life changing quest....

I was a well-performing conventional teenager in the USA. I did well in school, had great friends, played sports, and partied on the weekends. I was raised Catholic. 

Some people have a crisis in life which triggers a transformative process. Some people have the good fortune of being raised by conscious parents. I had the good fortune of feeling on top of my world as a teenager. I felt blessed by life and had a healthy sense of self confidence.

 

From that place I found myself deeply interested in "spirituality". In my final year of high school (public school) I started to read every spiritual book that came my way. New ideas started to crack my understanding of the world, and my sense of myself. I wanted to know how Jesus healed, and how the Buddha became enlightened.

-And what is enlightenment? And were any of these prophets and their legends real?-

I decided to study religion and philosophy in college, The academic world, or so I naively thought, surely held the wisdom I was looking for.

I read a book about the myths of the world's cultures, and how lt is a time for young Americans when you have to make some big life decisions. What will you do after school? Will you go to college? Where, and what will you study? Beginning by reading the Bible cover to cover - the only spiritual book I knew of at the time - I started searching for meaning and truth in life. When my priests stopped being able to answer my questions in a way thatI decided to read the Bible when I was 16 - cover to cover. I was inspired by the life of Jesus, but also felt torn between my religious ideals and my lifestyle. For my

I wanted something deep and pure. I started every spiritual book that came to meto want spiritual truth, religious and philosophical understanding, scientific studiesto a starry eyed spiritual seeker. , how breatharians can live only from breath, where shamans went in their trance aware of a living desire in me to help others on their inner journey of self-discovery.

     At that age, I had already gone through a couple years of major life transformation. I had left behind the rough form of the old me, and an innocent, young seeker-after-truth remained, devoted to an inner journey of realizing my highest ideals. I let go of the cultural expectation to go to school or get a career. Instead I trusted that my pure longing for something deeper (which I called different names at different times - such as God, or enlightenment, or my essence) would lead me where I needed to go. I knew that my journey would gift me with something precious to offer the world.

     For the last 18 years I have focused on my own growth, on understanding my being, on learning to participate in and love the world, on finding stillness and wholeness, on learning how to do nothing but be - with wakeful presence.

     I met many spiritual teachers who helped me along my way, and eventually I learned how to listen to my own inner guidance. For work, I found myself in an array of different jobs, always fun and fulfilling in a unique way. Yet I could feel a deeper purpose always ripening.

     Today my being feels mature enough to help others - like the tree of my life is bearing fruit. My meditations refresh me in an unfolding state of perfection. My cup is overflowing, and it flows into this work.

                                           

                                                                 

 Sincerely,

Timothy Khurshid Fitzwilliam
