The world we live in can be chaotic and ever-changing, which can lead to us looking outward for answers to our life’s meaning. However, the truth is that all the answers we need are inside us; whether it’s for inspiration, healing, purpose or wisdom – our inner life is all we need. We are the experts of our own lives and must remember this when looking for comfort and security amongst a sea of uncertainty.
Learning how to navigate constant change can lead us away from our inner-selves. We may lose touch with our true selves, and focus more on the external. This can leave us feeling disconnected and scattered. To bring balance back into life, it is essential to turn the attention inward by practising stillness, meditation, mindfulness or prayer contemplation. These activities help you shift out of your stressful thoughts and into a space of peace and calm. In that moment of inner-peace we are connected to all.
In this episode, Uda Erasmus talks about his 80-year journey and the importance of careful introspection. He shares how to effectively unlock our gift of life and enjoy it to the fullest. Learn how to find meaning and answers in our lives and make sure we don’t waste this precious gift.

About Udo Erasmus –
Udo was born during the second world war in Europe. His path includes brief jobs in several different trades: fruit picking, dairy farming, logging, mining, carpentry, house painting, clearing land, burning brush, growing food, gardening, and finally, pesticide spraying. He spent a year in medical school and several years in science research.
After being poisoned by pesticides in 1980, he seriously turned his passion and attention to health. He obsessively studied scientific literature, created a method for making good oils with health in mind, developed the first ever flax seed oil, and authored several books on the effects of oils on health: Fats and Oils; Fats That Heal Fats That Kill, Choosing the Right Fats, Omega 3 Cuisine, and enthusiastically educated the public in about 40 countries on the effects of oils on health and disease.
For 15 years, he spent six to nine months a year living out of a suitcase to spread the message of good oils and health. He has passionately given 5,000+ live presentations on nutrition and health, 3,000+ media interviews, 1,500 staff training, and traveled to 30+ countries with my message on oils, health, nature, and human nature.
He has had the pleasure and honor to grace the stages with luminaries like Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra, keynoted international conferences, and lectured at conferences on five continents.
Now he is writing on many different titles and topics, including an autobiography. He consults, presents, takes on the key global issues of our time and spearhead projects on peace, health, energy, environment, and education.
