Studied music `cause I was told I must be a singer (...and `cause of my mother`s ardent desire that I`d be a "diva") even though I strongly felt there is more to life than simply being a singer. After a long journey I understood it was actually part of the path.
Studied law out of passion for justice and helping people (...and to make my father proud with an extra degree). Found it to be a pile of senseless rules, often devoid of morality, compassion or honesty. I`ve let go of it and looked further towards truth.
Was set to go all the way to the academic doctorate level but, after having my degrees in music and law, I realized true mastery can`t be learned in the nowadays rigid, mechanical and ritualistic schools where there is no true understanding of the human being, his nature and purpose of life.
I`ve let go of this artificial system with all its faults and falsities and went on with my pursue for ultimate truth. I`ve found it!
Collaborating on music projects, recordings and concerts, guiding and inspiring people into the art of singing and being, reading, writing, contemplating, expanding the horizons of knowledge and keeping the joy of living "alive" is what fills my days.
Developing new skills, increasing practical intelligence, cultural exchange, martial arts, sustainable living, permaculture, understanding core philosophies of ancient civilisations and major thinkers of our world, truth, awareness, evolution, enlightenment... are the things that interest me.
As a woman, I am found of beauty, perfumes, shoes, jewellery... mundane glitters that is. Through which I express myself but which do not define me. At the end, in the world but not of it. In a form yet formless.
...in truth, OdiliaCarmen
