Be Human, Not a Zombie: A Guide to Finding Your Fundamental Nature – is a self-published book about a 4 year (10,000+ hrs) experiment done by the author on himself through the modes of meditation, self-inquiry, yoga, and mastery. It teaches people about how to start seeing the world through truth, rather than living in a mind dominated state. A “Zombie” is the authors word for unconscious, and unfortunately it seems to be the baseline view from which us humans see the world and ourselves. With the mental health crisis on the rise, one thing that can help you to thrive, is to realize who you truly are, rather than live from the mind created self. This book can help guide you to get started.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love creating and since I decided to do this 4 year experiment, this creation sort of just happened as a byproduct. I also wanted to share with others what I have learned because I used to suffer so much by my own doing.
What I have noticed in our society is that since many people are run by their minds, even the love that they hold for others is affected by their minds. True love is feeling the connection that you and another being are ultimately one and not separate.
What seems to be happening on our planet today is people feel some feelings, and then once those wear off, the mind comes in and takes over. It deludes us into thinking that love is felt through the separate ego. You then only love people when they do stuff for you or it’s convenient to you, and if your ego isn’t satisfied your “love” goes away. Notice in your relationships, if you are constantly wanting the person you love to be a certain way, do things in a certain manner, dress
and look up to your standards. These are all egoic desires and having them satisfied will only please you for a second, and your ego will quickly want your partner to fit your new standards.
Try to totally accept your partner for who they are, without changing them. The beauty is that everyone is different and when you allow them to be them, and they allow you to be you, you fully experience the beauty. Really try to work on connecting to your fundamental nature, so your love can be intensified due to you again feeling that oneness with yourself, and then it is reflected to others.
Be aware that although you might have true love for another, they may be captured by their ego. Don’t judge them as bad. Just try to stay fully present and conscious to not feed their zombie. Of course, if the person is too far turned and not ready to work on themselves, then you might need to get out of the relationship. You will still love their true nature, but their Zombie Mode might be too much.

I was a nationally ranked Canadian tennis player and an NCAA Division II scholarship recipient, and even with all that success in tennis-the thing I loved, and dedicated my life to, I would still get abused by my own mind constantly, which made no sense!
And through many years of coaching tennis, I was also able to witness that the mind suffering wasn’t just an issue for me, it was there for all my students, and this went way beyond the world of tennis.
After this discovery…. finding the “Zombie” cure was my mission in life, and Be Human, Not a Zombie was born.
