Hello! I’m Jermain. Welcome to Living With Delight. It is my sincerest hope that you can find information on this website that can motivate you to love yourself more, have greater compassion for others, and live a life filled with inner peace and true joy.
Although this is an ‘About Me’ page and I’m supposed to write about me, I’d encourage you to focus more on the information on this website and form your own discernment whether the information rings true for you. Always take what I say with a grain of salt. With that said, since I understand that you might still need to know about me so that you can decide whether you can trust what I share, I will provide my brief background here, so we can get that out of the way and focus on making sure that the information on this website is really helpful for you.
Nowadays, I teach and coach about mindfulness, and I’m a certified life coach and parenting coach. I was educated as an electrical engineer then an MBA and I spent much of my adult life in the corporate world. I used to work hard climbing the corporate ladder, chasing the American dream so to speak, without realizing that I had caused so much damage to my well-being and family life, until it all came tumbling down and forced me to question hard about the meaning of life, death, success, failure, family, and what I really want in this life.
I used to seek life’s meaning and purpose in religions, spiritual beliefs, and many areas of personal and spiritual development, which I thought would help me find the answers I was looking for. After more than 15 years of searching, I now realize that all these might have been interesting experiences, and that they have been helpful in my personal growth one way or another, however the most important and helpful thing essentially comes down to only a few very core and important areas, and much of what’s being marketed out there is really unnecessary and could even be detrimental to our well-being and growth.
In short, these few very core areas are not only helpful to our personal and spiritual growth, but also essential if we were to live a life filled with joy, inner peace, and fulfillment. This entire website, as well as what I stand for and do now, is dedicated to sharing this knowledge and helping more people with this.
It has always been my belief that the spiritual side is an integral part of ourselves, and there is no separation. No matter what people call it, we are essentially spiritual being, and at the same time we are also human being. There’s no need to separate these parts of ourselves.
We will experience more empowerment and joy when we focus on doing our best in our normal human life. Living and experiencing all we encounter in our life, as well as growing from our experiences, are indeed a spiritual development journey.
I notice that I have changed a lot since I started doing the inner work on myself. I used to have a quick and bad temper (and I still do sometimes), although most people don’t see that side of me because it is usually my loved ones who suffer from my hot temper. However, learning and practicing the spiritual side of things have helped me access that part of me that is willing to choose love and compassion instead of easily surrendering to those ego-driven emotions and intentions.
I hope more people can benefit from accessing their inner peace and wisdom, and start to enjoy life as it is. The information, products and services on this website are not associated with any religion. Spiritual stuff is essentially universal stuff that is life itself, and the most important part is ‘YOU’, because you experience your own reality and you can create your own possibilities in life.
I’m very happy that you’re here today, and I look forward to getting to know you more. I hope this website is helpful to you. Take wonderful care, and all the best to you!
