mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
jp. god for me is a feeling or energy, it is a warm energy and it makes me feel safe.

mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
jp. no, ultimately there is only one supreme spirit.

mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
jp. yes and no. the word god for me has a religious feel about it. if i am referring to god as the sun or the universe then i am not thinking about religion, but i think different terminology resonates with different associations with the word god. consciously i think that i see god in everything. god is not just in one place but everywhere. living in the present moment is so important, because when you are still and conscious you experience stillness which closely connects you with the divine. we are bound, and we are infinite, we are spiritually out there, there is so much that we are a part of that we still don’t know. we are just this minute speck of dust, not even that, in a big world, and it is kind of exciting and i think it just makes me wonder about who i am and why i am here. Its evolution, i believe that your journey carry’s on through your soul, through different transformations and journeys. really we are just in this body, it is nothing when we die. life is about dharma, a higher purpose, to be conscious, that is what life is about, to reach enlightenment at the end, and it may not be in this lifetime but many after. what we learn in this lifetime will continue onto the next as will our karma, until the time comes when your soul is pure, and you are god. i don't know what that feeling is yet but i am sure it is incredible. here we have a battle with ego, how we portray ourselves, how we look, how we act in social situations, this is all ego..we all do it..with ego comes power, and greed. we are challenged every day dealing with this. some days i am really aware of it and it’s sad.

mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
jp. i really believe in synchronicity, and i totally believe that things happen for a reason...the people we meet, our family and friends, everyone we have in our life are there for a reason, to help us nurture and grow.

mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
jp. being happy, content, present, conscious..but being in love with someone is a different element of love. you have to love life to feel love. loving unconditionally, the planet.

mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
jp. yes, love is everywhere, in abundance. it seems impossible to live without love.

mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
jp. space.

mig. what have you learned about life so far?
jp. i haven't learnt enough.

mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
jp. this world needs so much help. we can all still do so much. i think we are here to do a lot more and are capable to make huge changes. i believe that in the next 20-30 years we have to really help this planet, by becoming more aware of our surroundings. there are so many people out there who need our help. No one should be starving in this world, no one should be unclothed, We need to help others by making changes, even small changes have big effects. I think there has been a real shift in our consciousness recently, and there is a willingness which is surfacing in us all, this is the time in which we all need to help heal the planet and the people who need our help. we need to do this by raising our own frequency, If we are all conscious sending positive thoughts, we can change our world and heal what needs to be healed.
