The Suited Monk Lives within All of Us - an Empowering New Book on Life Purpose, Happiness and Self-Discovery. A candid narrative account of the author's life-altering breakthrough from a troubled childhood in Belgium - to pursuing his career in China to become a successful business man in his mid-20's - to struggling with ongoing acute dissatisfaction in all aspects of his life which resulted to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ burn-out by 24 years old. Although Raf had been successful in business at a young age, he started to pursue a new career with more happiness, meaning and purpose just two months before the global financial downturn. The timing and transition was tough, but at this time an inner-voice called upon Raf to simply 'follow-his-heart', whereby he experienced a spontaneous life changing 'awakening' which revealed to him the essence of what 'life' is all about - which is the basis of this book. By learning to synthesize one's inner heart-felt intuition of happiness, love, purpose, meaning and life-force (the Monk), with the external world of success and achievement (the Suit) in both professional and personal relationships - you can be rewarded with life's abundance of the internal and external worlds being a 'Suited Monk' - experiencing joy, love, health and wisdom, continuously attracting ongoing good fortune, and finding inner peace- minimizing and/or avoiding the ego-driven baggage apparent in sickness, anxiety, fear, negativity, guilt, professional stress burn out, youth suicide and middle age depression. Raf's step-by-step guide of The Life Journey and GAP ® visual models he developed from his personal experience and time-honored wisdom, promises the reader to easily identify and discover their own life path and explore pertinent self-questioning paradigms such as 'what is my purpose in life' - 'how can I live a truly fulfilling life, and also have a happy and satisfying career'- resulting in a healthy and strong inner-peace feeling every single day, for your entire life.
