Diego's spiritual journey began in his formative years, influenced by his parents' pursuit of spiritual growth.

However, his quest for genuine guidance was met with frustration as he encountered insincere spiritual leaders.

Changing the Past through Forgiveness
The past is unchangeable, but our perception of the past isn’t. By embracing forgiveness, we can change our perception of past events and recast negative experiences into positive, learning experiences that inspire personal and relational growth. During our conversation, Diego highlighted the power of forgiveness as a catalyst for transformative growth. He shared a touching story of a CEO who was able to change his perception of a traumatic event from his past through forgiveness. By forgiving and finding gratitude for his past, the CEO managed to replace painful memories with a positive narrative, inspiring immense growth and transformation in his life. This practice also seemed to truly change the past for other people as well, as Diego's telling of that mystical story illustrates.

Observing and Changing Our Responses
We have little control over circumstances and people in our life, but we can certainly control our reactions. By thoughtfully observing our emotional responses, we can work towards changing them in ways that are more positive, enabling us to cultivate emotional intelligence and resilience. Diego emphasized this point when explaining the concept of spiritual irony, whereby people attempt to align with an archetype of spiritual development at the cost of denying their own emotional responses. He suggests observing and breathing through our emotional responses before reacting, thus allowing us to channel the energy into a positive transformation rather than allowing it to become a poison.
