Former CEO of European IT company. Left the corporate world to pursue my dream of creating a world that works for all people. I love movies, nature, reading books, meditation, yoga, ancient (Indian) wisdom, latest consciousness science, changing the world, lots of hugs and creating profound relationships. My passion and work is to Empower young people and travel the world. My intention for now is to make new friends. If later it will evolve naturally into something more, that is fine. I will always respond if you send me a decent message in which you tell some more about yourself. SHORT LIFE STORY I was born in the Netherlands in 1969. I graduated with credits as Civil Engineer. I worked for 1 year on the development of the 'Swan' bridge in Rotterdam. Then I started working as a software engineer. I founded and managed an IT company for 5 years. In 1997 something happened that changed the course of the rest of my life. An Unprecedented Experience - I participated in a Reiki weekend and I experienced a love, joy and Peace of Mind I had never ever experienced before. This experience was so powerful that I said to myself: “If I can feel like this for the rest of my life, then I do not want anything else anymore!” A first glimpse of Unity Consciousness had made me hungry for more. The journey of awakening had started. The Frustration - The 'bliss' I experienced in the Reiki weekend did not last and normal life continued. In 1999 I turned 30 years old. I had my own business, my own home, two cars, a girlfriend, a supportive family, good friends and most important a big television. ;) Despite all these nice 'outer things' in my life, I was missing something. Though daily I spent time with people, I most often felt disconnected, separated and alone. I mostly experienced a very superficial quality of life. I kept wondering: “Is this all there is to life?” After the experience in the Reiki weekend I knew there must be more. The Sabotaging Ego - The year 2000 came. The start of a new millennium. Whenever I would watch the news or read the newspaper, it used to give me a lot of thoughts and feelings. I thought: "Why do we treat each other so bad in this world? There must be some other way we can relate to each other.” I felt dissatisfied. Then I thought: 'What can I do about this?" This gave me many other thoughts like: "Who are you? Do you think you are someone who can create a better world? You are not Nelson Mandela! You are not Gandhi! You cannot do so! You are not good enough!" All these thoughts led again to more feelings. Feelings of fear and feeling small and inadequate. The Spark - The year 2000 approached its end. I discovered a small voice deep inside of me, which kept on saying, "What if? . . . . What if you could play a role in bringing peace, love and harmony to the world. Would that be a life worth living?" The Best Decision Ever - At the ending of the year 2000, the voice had become too loud to ignore. Slowly I started sharing my ideas with my friends and family. December 2000 I made, what turned out to be, the best decision ever. I decided to pursue my dream. I closed down my IT company and put my apartment up for sale. My foundation for a sustainable world was based on my experience that when people feel connected to each other, they treat each other well. This always leads to an increase in workability. I started wondering how to connect peoples hearts. The Vision - In 2001 I started writing down a vision of how this future could unfold. I was writing for months and months in a row. In my experience this future started arising. Suddenly I realised, that actually this project is not about changing the world. It is about giving people new experiences. Experiences they never ever had before. Experiences like I had in my Reiki weekend, Experiences like I was having right now, while writing. New experiences in the domain of love, unity, joy and fully expressing oneself. When these experiences are entering our consciousness I am sure that people will think, communicate and act in new ways. I believe that this can lead to a world which works for all. The vision had now become more clear and forced all of my fears and insecurities to the background. The Sustainable World Project was born. The Breakthrough - In July 2001 I sold my house and most belongings. I returned my car to the dealer. Like a proper western materialist, I could not yet let go of my big television! ;) It went to my parents. I bought a one way ticket around the world, packed my bags and a multi decade long adventure began. A Journey Starts - August 2001. My first objective was to share my vision with the world. I wanted to know whether my vision was something that other people also wanted, or that my vision was the evidence for my insanity! ;) We all Want the Same - I shared the vision in seminars, I spoke to the corporate world and I would 'trouble' people on the sidewalk. After sharing the vision with more than a 100.000 people from over a 150 different countries it all became clear. Every human being, regardless of religion, country, culture or other different backgrounds, shares the same desire for love, unity and the desire to belong. We want to experience that our lives matter. We want to experience that we matter. The Heart of the Sustainable World Project - I feel deeply blessed having connected with these people. The look in their eyes and their feedback, told me that this project, which is about connecting peoples hearts, is something we all long for so much. This is what the project is about. Connecting peoples hearts as an access to solving local, regional, national and global issues. The feedback from people was not only telling me that they shared the same desire, but also that the vision implemented as a global project could actually achieve a new quality of life worldwide. Getting this positive and encouraging feedback gave me the confidence to take it to the next level. In all my interactions with the people I had met, I now understood as an experience that every issue disappears in a moment of being profoundly related. This experience was a human experience. It was not related to the different backgrounds we had. In other words: 'Every issue disappears when love is present as an experience'. In other words every issue disappears when we transcend egoic consciousness and experience unity consciousness. What I already had experienced as an individual in my Reiki weekend in 1997 and in my writing in early 2001 was now confirmed by a global community. The vision I had, went from a concept based on my personal experience to a vision deeply desired by the community at large. The work we do is to guide people how to experience 'Unity Consciousness' or in simple words true love. I believe it is the highest what people truly want in life. Last Words - Having lived in three different continents and having travelled all over the world I connected with people from almost all countries. Many are still loyal Facebook friends. In my journey I have experienced, that ALL personal, inter personal and inter cultural problems can be overcome by transcending Ego and shifting to unity consciousness. This can be accomplished through guided dialogues and healing sessions. Through sound, movement and touch we can shift anyone's consciousness. “How do you tell someone that you believe in your heart and soul you have a solution for ALL the problems the world is facing? How do you express yourself so you are taken seriously? “ “My name is Richard Alexander. In 2001 I sold my house to pursue a dream. A dream to create a world that works for all people. As of today I live in Bangalore, India and not only is the pursuit still on, but we are on the verge of launching our work at a global scale, bringing a new quality of life for millions of people. Is this the right life to live? I do not know. Is it a perfect life to live? Definitely not! ;) However, I do believe it is a life worth living. Congratulations, you came till the end! ;) You must be someone persistent and determined! Looking forward to hear from you! You can actually very easily find me online. Lets start with friendship.

Someone available and ready to make it work to meet if there is a good connect. I am looking for Maturity, Transparency, Good Communication and Listening Skills. Someone intelligent, genuine and playful. Someone not afraid to express and receive love. Someone who has learned to BE. Someone who still has a passion for life; you want to make the most out of it. We can just BE together in silence while experiencing a deep emotional connect. Someone who has learned to communicate her needs, wants and expectations in a responsible way. You know that magic is there when we become self aware. True love is being a witness to one another without wanting to control the other out of insecurity.

Travelled:

Travelled to US, Western Europe, Morocco, New Zealand, Australia. Next 10 years there will be a lot more travelling to all continents.

Cultural Adaption:

I have had a Jewish girlfriend, American girlfriend, was married to an Indian for 14 years. I don't believe in adapting, sacrificing or adjusting. I believe in powerful communication and being committed to working things out in a way that works for all involved. It requires maturity. It requires being self aware so we don't keep reacting to life in the same circles identified with judgemental thoughts. We respond and work issues out through non violent dialogue.

Romance:

I would say for a weekend where unprecedented love is present as an experience it mostly requires a person who is self aware. The activities do not define our experience. The maturity of our mind does. With powerful non-violent communication, non judgemental listening, dis-identification of negative thought a lot of love can come knocking on the door. Activities I like are: movies, travelling, healing, yoga, authentic sharing of life stories, dining out, walking in nature or engaging in 2 minute hugs! . . . which then become one hour or more! ;) I am also completely comfortable to stay at home. Together on the couch watching a movie. A variety in activities is something I appreciate.

Personality:

Someone who wants to live life to the fullest. Mature, Communicative, Genuine, Playful, Passionate, Idealistic, Sensitive, Reliable & Transparent

My Perfect Match is:

Reliable, Self Aware, Available, Intelligent, Sense of humour about herself, Compassionate, Mature, Playful, Good Communication and Listening Skills, Easily Expressing and Receiving love, Passionate and Adventurous.

Safety Tip - Beware of fake photos

Some scammers from Ghana, Nigeria, Russia or other countries will email or share fake photos with you. Always request as many photos of the person as possible and try to receive photos in many different situations such as at home, at work, at events, with other people etc. Most scammers will send only a small number of photos and usually photos that are not in a group setting. It is very important to also verify the appearance of the person by chatting on webcam.
