THE university FOR GODS

Schools for unprecedented males have continually existed, in all ages and society.
‘Schools of Being’ the place visionaries, pragmatic dreamers are forged.
Where they could domesticate an indomitable ardour for greatness.

Psychological overturning:

  • The heads of destiny companies might be philosophers of action.
  • It isn't assets which are restricted, yet guy who initiatives on the earth his barriers and feel of scarcity.
  • The sufferer is often guilty.
  • Love your enemy.
  • Becoming outdated, getting ill and loss of life are undesirable psychological habits.

  • The planet's so much dreadful disease isn't really melanoma or Aids, yet man's conflictual considering. This mental function is the root upon which the normal imaginative and prescient of the realm is equipped. Like Prometheus, i've got seized a fraction of the Dreamer's international, and carry directly to it tightly to teach a 'way out' to women and men who, like me, desire to abandon the outdated description of the area, our previous methods of considering, rules and prejudices, on the way to unfastened our lives. in an effort to switch man's future, there's a have to swap his mental framework, his method of convictions and ideology.

    For this, a style is needed... an get away plan. nobody can do so by myself.
    A university is needed... A college for Gods...

    "You will stumbled on a faculty of Being, a school for whoever has a dream to realize... the place it is going to be taught that the 'Dream is the main genuine factor there is'... that what guy calls truth is not anything greater than the mirrored image of his dream. you'll create a college of accountability, a college for philosophers of motion the place will probably be taught that happiness is economy... that wealth, well being and sweetness are each man's birthright. you'll create a college with no end... a college for Gods... it's going to have My speed and My variety ... you want to now not worry feedback. there'll appear to be hindrances of each type, yet each hassle or enemy will change into your maximum best friend, an quintessential and irreplaceable a part of this endeavour."
