i have had the opportunity over the course of my white beard life (i.e many years of life)to live amongst some of the richest people in the worldand many of my friends from that time are now multi-multi millionaires, even billionaires.

i rememberer some of them saying to me,“Danny, haven’t you spent enough time searching for yourself. Isn’t it time to get into the business world and make some money?”

i would think about what they were saying and especially now in these days, where money is tight and the decisions that i made have brought me to this place; i sit with an open mind and ask myself those very same questions.

i look at the life i have leadwalking away from so many opportunities,going to seminary, living 10 years as a monk and i ask myself,was it all worth it?would i have been happier if i had just made a lot of money? certainly there are major areas of my life that would have been much easier if i only did what everyone else did.

when i look into the world from where is it now i must be honest, i do not see a world where in people know themselves.of course there are those who do and i gather such inspiration from these people, but the majority, the overwhelming majority of people i meet do not know themselves.

and it seems to me, just like the archetype of The Thief in my book The Mosaic, who steals one thing and replaces it with another; i choose to let him steal my money and replace it with inner peace, while the rest of the world allowed him to steal their inner peace and replace it with money.

in creating my website DanielBruceLevin.com (coming soon) i sat in the emptiness of silence.i allowed the uncomfortableness i felt when i looked at myself i sat thinking time had passed me by;that i was no longer the business development guy who helped hay house grow from $3million to $100million a year in sales; or the connections guy that introduced people to people; i was definitely not the sales funnel guy or the guy that writes social media posts and i wondered who i was, not in the past but here in this moment, who am/was i?

and then the answer crept in, i am the guy who watches and listens. i am the one who questions what you believe is real and asks you for a moment to consider that what believe is not real. that what you see is not what is, but only what you see. i am the guy that shifts your vantage point and invites you to see what you are looking from a new perspective. to see what you do not see.

i am a disrupter, an innovator, a magician, a visionary and i bring all of that to those who resonate with what i am saying and choose to work together with me.

it comes down to one very simple equation:
when we change the way we see, what we see changes.

wishing you unfathomable peace.

The book he wrote for them, The Ohana of Red Earth created a corporate culture of family not staff.   Levin is a rare blend of mystic and business guy. He is a storyteller and the beautiful story he weaves in his book, The Mosaic touches the hearts of people and soothes their souls.

He is the father of a beautiful special needs daughter who teaches him that he is able to do far more than he ever thought possible; the step father of a handsome and fun loving teenage boy who helps him remember how powerful fear is; and a brilliant and beautiful teenage daughter who reminds him how important it is to live inside out; and #hashtag, their adorable and loving golden retriever who reminds him that life is all about play.   They live by the ocean feeling very blessed, loving others and helping people get what they want.
