Discover that happiness based on what’s temporary is elusive, while happiness based on eternal truth is forever in this interview with Daniel Parmeggiani.
DANIEL PARMEGGIANI was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and moved to the United States when he was 12 years old. Growing up in a household traumatized by the violent death of his older brother, and caught between two radically different parental worldviews, young Daniel often felt guilty, isolated and depressed. Finally, at age 17, after failing to find relief in either religion or psychoanalysis, he experienced a profoundly cathartic vision of self-forgiveness and self-love. Feeling it was his responsibility to present this important spiritual message to the world in a ‘real’ and unpretentious way, Daniel decided to write his first book, The Magnificent Truths of Our Existence. Earlier in life, Daniel spent 10 years working successfully in the field of computer science. He then went on to become a day-trader in the stock market, which he continues to this day. He says this exciting but risky lifestyle is very spiritually purifying, as it has taught him how to live completely in the moment without material attachment. He currently lives in Pompano Beach, Florida, with his wife, Susan, and their dog, Chewy.
