LONG STORY SHORT…DIRECTLY FROM KOBBY TO YOU.
I was trapped in the noise of religion and controlled by the ego. I had bought into the wrong idea that life is a struggle… that one has to be aggressive to find meaning and happiness. I wrote songs and pursued a music career in hopes that I may find fulfillment and become ‘somebody’. Now, after over seven years of reading a wide range of materials, seeking, and knocking, I have found the peace that is beyond name and form… beyond religion or creed… I have found the life I needed; that life is the love I needed; that love is the truth I needed, and that truth is the Christ. I’ve found the reason for my being, and, now I sing, write, and speak to inspire others to find theirs.
I’ve found the reason for my being, and, now I sing, write, and speak to inspire others to find theirs.
My philosophy, now, is that as long as you are breathing you are as important as any other human being on earth, and it is your duty to discover, focus on, and to be what only you have been born to be. Being what you are created to be is the only endeavor that pays beyond time and money.
