In this video we'll dive into the first 4 steps of the Noble Eightfold Path outline 3000 years ago by Gautum Buddha. These four steps: right view, right intention, right livelihood, and right effort gives you the starting point on your journey to enlightenment (samadhi). <br /><br />With right view we understand that the way that we are listening and seeing this is not harmonious with our natural state. The Buddha says we must strip bias, past thoughts, and opinions so that we are seeing reality clearly - for what it is.<br /><br />With right intension the Buddha tells us that there is a way to move forward without intention. All desires lead to misery at one point or another, so how do we move forward without desire? Once desires have stopped, are you now just an empty shell? What must be understood is how natural growth works. <br /><br />With right livelihood the Buddha tells us how to live in harmony with nature, and to expand in the way that the universe expands. Dropping all private desires leads to the ultimate form of a quiet mind. <br /><br />In this results-oriented, goal-oriented world, the Buddha outlines a clear way for us to step out of it. How do you prevent laziness when your desires have dropped?

Let's uncover the 4 Noble Truths of the Buddha and possibly an additional "truth" that exists only in the Modern World. In this video, we will be analyzing the core teachings of Buddha and the confusion that stems from inaccurate translation.

We explore how the world has dramatically changed from the time of Buddha, and how to navigate the modern challenges that the teachings do not address.

The Four Noble Truths of the Buddha are the core teachings and foundational wisdom of Buddhism. First spoken into existence 3000 years ago, it still applies today.
It was the first set of things the Buddha spoke about after becoming enlightened. What do they mean? What do you do with them? Does it still apply today?

It can be better explained by rather seeing the 4 Noble Truths as 4 realities with which we are confronted.
By realizing that suffering is a part of everyone's lives and that all suffering stems from desire, we can move forward into a state of enlightenment by reaching objective perspectives on life and the world.

These steps end in the Eight-Fold Path which we will speak on later.
Learn how to understand the core teachings of Buddha by watching this video.

I am asked this almost every time I have a meditation class. Is the Lotus posture necessary for meditation? Does it do anything different for you and your meditation?
➡️ Mystics frequently use the Lotus Posture to meditate, and many people try to follow the same approach, but in this video we’ll explore why the Lotus Posture does not have optimal results for everyone.   

Meditation is inherently about achieving a state of bliss, and comfort is a very important part of this. Many Westerners will find the Lotus Posture uncomfortable and painful, effectively hindering their journey to enlightenment.
➡️ It’s important to remember that there aren’t set rules in meditation, and you need to find a posture that is comfortable and stable, as that will be the key to moving forward in your personal growth.
What posture is actually good for meditation? Patanjali, the founder of yoga, has some things to say. Let's break down what the best posture is for you and your meditation experience.

💬 Tell us what you think about the Lotus Posture and share any meditation tips and experiences in the comment section down below.

There is nothing wrong with money, but can it bring you happiness? 
A question from a reader: "Why am I still unhappy even though I'm finally making a lot of money?" 
➡️ A core teaching of Buddhism is that craving/desires lead to unhappiness. Lao Tzu says that misery and fortune share a common bond. Many enlightened teachers agree. But is there anything wrong with money? Is it bad to be rich and successful? 
In this video, we explore the complexities of achieving true happiness, and why money won’t bring it.

The problem is when people achieve their financial goals, they have no external goals to focus on and now are drawn inward. 
➡️  This brings to light the shortcomings of our ego’s, and how it prohibits us from achieving true happiness. Although money is useful, it is not the key to happiness, but simply a tool that can be used in your growth towards finding happiness within yourself.
Let's look at money in a different way and come to grips with how it impacts your ego. What exactly is the ego? How does money re-enforce it?

💬 Share your personal stories and experiences regarding this with us in the comment section below, and let us know what you think about the relationship between wealth and happiness.

Rich and Sad: The Endless Pursuit 💰 Why Money and Wealth Will Not Bring You Happiness!

There is nothing wrong with money, but can it bring you happiness?
A question from a reader: "Why am I still unhappy even though I'm finally making a lot of money?"
➡️ A core teaching of Buddhism is that craving/desires lead to unhappiness. Lao Tzu says that misery and fortune share a common bond. Many enlightened teachers agree. But is there anything wrong with money? Is it bad to be rich and successful?
In this video, we explore the complexities of achieving true happiness, and why money won’t bring it.

The problem is when people achieve their financial goals, they have no external goals to focus on and now are drawn inward.
➡️ This brings to light the shortcomings of our ego’s, and how it prohibits us from achieving true happiness. Although money is useful, it is not the key to happiness, but simply a tool that can be used in your growth towards finding happiness within yourself.
Let's look at money in a different way and come to grips with how it impacts your ego. What exactly is the ego? How does money re-enforce it?

💬 Share your personal stories and experiences regarding this with us in the comment section below, and let us know what you think about the relationship between wealth and happiness.

Let's uncover the 4 Noble Truths of the Buddha and possibly an additional "truth" that exists only in the Modern World. In this video, we will be analyzing the core teachings of Buddha and the confusion that stems from inaccurate translation. 
➡️ We explore how the world has dramatically changed from the time of Buddha, and how to navigate the modern challenges that the teachings do not address.

The Four Noble Truths of the Buddha are the core teachings and foundational wisdom of Buddhism. First spoken into existence 3000 years ago, it still applies today.
➡️ It was the first set of things the Buddha spoke about after becoming enlightened. What do they mean? What do you do with them? Does it still apply today?

It can be better explained by rather seeing the 4 Noble Truths as 4 realities with which we are confronted.  
➡️ From realizing that suffering is a part of everyone's lives and that all suffering stems from desire, we can move forward into a state of enlightenment by reaching objective perspectives on life and the world.

These steps end in the Eight-Fold Path which we will speak on later. 
Learn how to understand the core teachings of Buddha by watching this video.

Who is Devean?
I have been guiding successful people through their spiritual growth for a decade. I was born into a family of Buddhist monks on my mothers’ side. My uncle is an Archbishop in the catholic church on my fathers’ side. I started and sold a multi-million dollar company by the age of 31. Melding my spiritual studies and my success in business I’ve helped many people find their own way.
I’m not into prescribing a routine. It’s about going into your mind and helping you identify yourself. I’ll teach you how to overcome limiting beliefs and find your true purpose in life. I’m not offering a mantra to repeat every day, but a personalized, real, lasting change in your being. Whether your goal is to combat a lack of movement and your life, or simply to attain more knowledge, I’ll take you there.

Spiritual Coaching
How Can Spiritual Coaching Benefit You
The Difference Between Spiritual Growth and Therapy
More and more people today are turning to psychoanalysis and therapy. It is helpful for some but you must understand that the goal of therapy is to bring you only to non-misery at best. To give you a space to vent your concerns so that they do not build up and explode within you. A place to label your problems in place of surpassing them. Therapy attempts to give you the means to cope with the routine life, but not to transcend non-misery. It works for those people who have become incapable of dealing with normal life, but no transcendence is born through therapy. It allows you to accept that this is all life can give you, so don’t go looking for more. In a way, it inhibits your inner growth. The way of modern therapy is Freudian. My way is the ancient Eastern way, brought into the modern world. A way that allows you to surpass the asleep state of misery and dissatisfaction afflicting most of the modern persons.
Developing Understanding and Awareness
In order to awaken from this state, a great amount of awareness is needed. From a young age, a person has been taught to become automatic. The automatic person is an efficient cog in the wheel of society, however, the automatic person is not happy. The automatic person lives without living, without control, and without fulfillment. This is what it means to awaken. To become aware instead of automatic. To live consciously instead of subconsciously. Learning to become aware is the first step in becoming unsubmerged from the dream state where you have been existing, out of control of your own self.
It's Up To You To Decide
Just as each person is different, this program is not designed in an arbitrary way. The cure for one person could be poison to another. Spiritual and internal growth begins where you are, and unfolds depending on who you are. The wisdom is the same, however, the path is individual. The Buddha had said that in order to untie a knot you must first understand how it became knotted, to begin with. In order to untie your misery, we will need to explore how it came to form.
The Truth About
Finding Happiness
Happiness is not a commodity, it is not a thing, it cannot be purchased. It is a consequence of an alert life. My whole teaching is to make you more alert, so that life does not just pass.
Our whole life is just playing games. You do it because you are unaware. Unaware of how much time, energy, and life that is being wasted. Only when death starts coming closer do you become more alert. Life is not something that should just pass, it is an opportunity to reach somewhere deep within you.
I have watched even my uncles that are Buddhist monks become trapped in the games. Power, prestige, money, sex, religious zealousness. All of it is a game. On the surface, only games exist. Unless you touch the center, you will only live in illusion. I will teach you how to go through life with awareness, use life to gain roots, and use life as an opportunity to reach the divine. Only there can you find true happiness.
The ones that are aware stand out from the crowd. Everyone else is moving as if they are drunk. They don’t know who they are, they don’t know where they are, where they are going, or even why they are going.
What to Expect
A Lasting Effect
A lasting effect on growth, that doesn’t wane from week to week. A happiness that doesn’t begin and end with the weekend.
Ancient Knowledge
Understand what all the great ancient teachers had in common. From Gautam Buddha, to Majavira, and even Christ.
Personal Guidance
Though the core of wisdom remains the same, the path to unraveling the ties that hold you back from experiencing truth will be individual to you.
The Path To Success
How it Works
Play Video
1. Identify Issues Preventing Your Growth
First, we will explore what you believe is causing you to feel dissatisfaction, unfulfillment, anxiety, or unhappiness. Together we will weed through the mess of the mind and bring clarity to these issues and emotions. From this point, we can begin moving forward.
Play Video
2. A Course in Ancient Wisdom
Before we dive into your inner world, you will get an understanding of the ancient wisdom of the Buddhas that have persisted through ancient times. There is core wisdom that exists within all teachings such as Buddhism, Jainism, Hinduism, and even Christianity that must first be understood.
Play Video
3. Becoming Awakened
Awakening from the deep sleep of misery has much to do with meditation, however not meditation in the conventional form. It is more complex and at the same time much simpler than it’s made to seem in western culture. At this point, you will begin to learn the ancient transformative practices of meditation built for the modern person.
Play Video
4. Mind-Body Balancing
Energy is often drained through our habits, our health, and our human interactions. In order to transform one’s life and inner world, energy must be reserved for this act alone. At this time you will learn how to create and preserve energy for the purpose of inner transformation.
Play Video
5. Breaking Through Spiritual Blocks
You are starting to awaken, the mind has begun to settle, you have regained access to your energy, and clarity has formed around the roots of your dissatisfaction. It is now that we can begin to revisit your initial concerns with a newfound ability to move past them. Many find that through the process itself, their concerns are no longer.
The Search
Why Nothing Has Worked
Psychiatry is like pruning the leaves of a tree that’s full of problems, neurosis, and doubt. These are the issues that embody the average person. Pruning the leaves works for a while, but unless you cut off the roots of the tree, they will continue to grow back. At times even stronger. The Ancient Psychology that I teach is cutting the roots off the tree itself.
Play Video
Choosing the right teacher
When you come across a master that is right for you, there may seem to be some fear. This is because the ego recognizes that with this discipline a transformation will occur that the ego cannot survive. If you are very ready, then this fear will come in the form of excitement. If you are not ready, then your ego will become offended and will want to turn away. The ego will want to find something less potent that will not threaten your current state. However, if the current state is not threatened, no real change can be made.
What many teachers prescribe is not potent enough to create change. Their diluted advice is sold in order to be palatable for the masses. This is why the masses remain in misery and anxiety. These teachers appease the students in order to gain the most income, however, their lessons are impotent.
My interest is not in appeasing those who are unready for transformation but to provide those who are ready with what is needed to transform.
