How The Foundation Was Born

After I attempted to take my life, God has given me a second chance to fulfill the perfect plan he had designed for me.
In my deep desire to discover for what reason I was born, I found the meaning of my existence and my purpose in life became a simple and exciting testimony to share with others. Between two philosophies of life I opened my eyes to myself and I knew the value of a wonderful human being that I am who lived in darkness for many years, applying a wrong life philosophy: HAVE + DO + BE = DESTRUCTION, I believed that my life was worth according to what I had, towards getting what I wanted with an ego superior to others.
From a material loss came the desire to put an end to my existence, resulting in a miraculous day that changed the course of my history forever.

During the recovery process, I changed the philosophy of life To have + do + be for: BE + DO + HAVE = LOVE, I found in my new philosophy that the meaning for life are human beings and nature. I found a burning light within my inner self to activate with the power of my mind and positive thoughts, based on faith and compassion for others creating an environment of cooperation with the universe, God’s workmanship.

I understood that the universe is ours. Just as plants and animals are adorned and empowered in nature fulfilling their functions, man with the privilege of reasoning deserves to awaken to discover the potential that lies within. I was passionate to see how important and necessary human beings are with each having a purpose of life for the evolution of the planet. This is why I have a deep gratitude of being alive that I desire to open a foundation so that together we can serve as instruments of prevention to the failed idea of taking one’s life.
