During our stay in Mexico we observed and studied the people and culture to understand how we can live a more simple and happy life. During our experience we have the opportunity to speak to a Russian man who has been traveling searching for a happy and simple life and decided to settle in Mexico. We crossed paths with him during the Tequila tour and he shared with us his perspective on why he chose Mexico and his experience here so far. We welcome you to the portal and are excited to share with you how Mexico taught us to design our live and live a much more simple lifestyle.
Entere the portal. Introduce The Russian man.
Rizen met a Russian man who moved to Cancun 7 years ago after traveling to multiple countries in search of a more simple life. When asked why he chose Mexico he briefly mentioned that, “Mexico has people that are a lot more friendly everyone says hello to you and you know more people. The also like the culture here and I save a lot of money since the food and expenses are lot cheaper.”
Rizen intrigued by this wanted to see if People in Mexico are actually happier? You can tune into the video here to dive deeper but we where curious about the way the people design their life. We asked the Russian man what his daily life was like.
“Very simple compared to when I was in Santa Barbara.. It was fast pace over there and people seemed to always be in a rush and not speak to you..Here in Mexico I worry less. I am a tour guide and work during the week, I speak multiple languages and get to meet a lot of people.. In cancun I just enjoy cooking, the beach and my friends…a lot simpler.. yes a lot simpler…”
A simple life. Less clutter. The way of Zen. Rizen tunes us how this shifted his vision for life.
A new way of living life.
It really comes to the type of vision you have for your life and what type of lifestyle you want to live. Being here in Mexico and speaking to the Russian man gave me clarity to what else is possible.
I remember when I was younger my parents expected me to live the same lifestyle they are living. They worried that I wouldn’t be able to adjust to anything less than what I’m used to. In a way it does take time to adapt in another you have a choice.
Perspective allows you to see more options for your life.
Avoid the illusion that you need to live a certain lifestyle because other people expect it of you or even society. Below are some common values that are promoted through propaganda and over time become paradigms and limiting beliefs. Growing up we where exposed to these values and they eventually started to dictate and control the trajectory of our vision for life.
Common low conscious values;
⁃ Common education
⁃ Family and marriage
⁃ Corporate career path.
These values eventually become truths when you do not consider any other options. Many of us fall under the go to school, get a corporate job, have a family, retire and then die. Yet you have a choice. You can live a more simple lifestyle
You can design your own life.
What’s the vision for your life? What do you want to accomplish in this life?
We have now choice and we recognize how we where overcomplicating our live with the common LA speed and demand of living. The need to “make money and be somebody” as if you aren’t already enough or worthy of happiness. The common trap of “you need a degree or you won’t amount to success” and the misbelief of “You need a lot of money because you need to pay bills, support a family, have a car and a big house and life an expensive lifestyle.” The states has created this paradigm of always needed more and never being satisfied. We realized that we have a choice. We can choose to live a more simple lifestyle that’s fun and creative.
We are choosing to traveling the world and coaching in personal development and career design. We are choosing to express ourselves though writing and filming videos. We are choosing to share our story through talks and workshops. We have really understood more perspective and gained control over our life and what we want to experience. Now ask yourself what are you choosing?
This is a huge shift for use and we acknowledge that before we where choosing a different lifestyle. One that contracted our expression. One that strived out of a need for belonging and a search for acceptance. We share below.
In our early journey we wanted to be
⁃ Have lots of money
⁃ Have a nice car and a nice house
⁃ Have power
⁃ Have expensive things
⁃ Be with a lot girls
⁃ Go to school for my Masters
⁃ Go into business
Yet now with years of personal development, perspective and shifting our views we are beginning to understand happiness in a whole new spectrum. Now we are choosing a different way of being.
In our current journey we choose
- Inner peace
- Self – love and deep connections
- Creative expression
Remember you get to choose the life you want to experience Recognize the difference between happiness and ignorance.
⁃ My uncle said everyone is happy here / I’m not sure if they are happy or they just settled with what they have / ignorance is ignoring the truth.
⁃ Most people aren’t aware of the self actualized life or what is possible for them.
⁃ They are controlled by their circumstances / never experience deep states of bliss of happiness. Surface level comfort. Are they really happy? Or are they comfortable with ignorance, unaware of what else life has to offer.
We are making choices every day pursuing a certain outcome that we have created in our minds. The question is why are you following that outcome and what are you really searching for in life? You always have a choice. Tune into the filmmaker ricks perspective to understand how a simple decision can alter the rest of your life.
