How I quit escaping my own life
and transform it at the Landmark Forum.
It was the time of many transitions and changes in my life just
before I did the Landmark Forum. I was in the process of moving out of
Manila – I'd gotten sick and tired of the traffic, politics, my
profession, and even my family. I was going to remove myself from all
the “jerks” in my life too. I'd already actually taken a teaching job
far away from the city and was ready to change my life – to make it
more, better, and different.
Fortunately, in the midst of all that, I did the Landmark Forum ... and
it totally blew me away. It was like a nuclear bomb leveling everything
that I was complaining about to nothing. Instead of superficial changes
in the circumstances I was treated to a true transformation of my life!
The people I'd cut off and given up on were suddenly appearing like new
people that are quite decent and even great. All those years of making
others wrong just got wiped out from me. Most importantly, I got my
family back and the quality of my life – and, wonderfully enough, theirs
– has never been the same. It was so impactful that my dad and sister
also signed up for their own respective Landmark Forums!
But my favorite breakthrough was getting my own country back. I'd gotten
so resigned and cynical about the Philippines. I lived through major
attempts at changing how things were here and saw that it did not work.
I had totally given my country up as “hopeless.” And I couldn't make a
difference! In the Landmark Forum, I got to choose my country for
everything it is and for everything it is not. That choice allows me to
create what is possible for the Philippines, and, in the Advanced
Course, we created the possibility of a country that works! Everything
else I'm up to in life is inside of this new possibility and it deeply
Once the life of complaints and resigning to doing nothing was firmly
left in the past, I stepped into the world of Landmark
Assisting Program. I assist inside of the future I created in the
Advanced Course: a first-world Philippines that works. The value I've
gotten from the Assisting Program is tremendous.
Just like any Landmark Courses, anything I want for myself and my life
is available in my participation in the Assisting Program. As one of the
Landmark Introduction Leaders in Manila, I've gotten major breakthroughs
in many areas of my life: my profession and businesses, finances,
relationships, even my travels.
Unique from other Landmark courses, as one of the people who
assist I have the awesome privilege to contribute - and I love to be
partners with the Landmark community in the Philippines. We are indeed
ordinary people with extraordinary commitment, and I am so happy that I
did the Landmark Forum instead of running away from life.
