About Joeban Machiel
"I remember when I was a young kid I lived my life without any problems. Problems just did not exist. Then suddenly I had them. And a lot. The older I got, the more serious the problems appeared. It took me some years of training to recreate living my life without problems. If I could back then, why not now?
I discovered that there are no problems in life. I mean that quite literally. But 'there are no problems in life' doesn't mean that there are no problems for human beings. This distinction made me curious of how we as human beings create life it self.
Later on in my life I realized that were my life was all about, was about nothing, it was meaningless, empty. I realized that all the things that were important to me, looking good, having success, making career, all the normal things in life that are important for a lot of people, are not important at all. It’s all empty and meaningless. The moment I realized that I can breakthrough the routine of life, to breakthrough the time-is-money feeling, I realized, I’m FREE! What does it mean to be free? Being free to choose, being free to be myself, being free to create a life worth living it"!

An idea worth spreading
Powerful Context for Life
There’s not much you can do about the circumstances of your life. But the one thing you have absolute control over is the context of your life.
We are really good in feeling with the concepts of an event. We have a lot of skills in dealing with the process of an event, but we have almost no awareness about the context of an event. You see, it’s not about what you think that will improve the quality of your life, but it’s the space in which you think. It’s about what you could think that will improve the quality of your life.
What everybody thinks: 'Thinking positive will improve my life'. Thinking differently is not going to change someone’s life or is going to open up someone’s life. Because there’s no shift in context. You’re still in the same box, get rid of the box!
So what really alters your life isn’t starting with thinking, it’s about being. So be happy, be successful, be fulfilled, be creative, no matter the circumstances! Go out and play!
I'm passionate about
People, education, biology, human evolution, nature, rock climbing, dancing, photography, art, music, writing, life!
