Distinguished Philosopher

James has applied his philosophical observations to everyday life – to understand perceptions from many philosophical teachings and practices with the ability to utilise them where needed.
He has applied his potential to the very best and has fulfilled this through what he considers the fundamental purpose of life.

Simultaneously, James perceives all these wise reflections as unique ways for each one of them to resonate with different personality types in different ways. Understanding how variation resonates with people, one size does not fit all. James shares the values of the Stoic sage, patience, deep commitment, seriousness, peacefulness, calmness, caution, benevolence, and wisdom.
