Ösel even was homeless in Venice and Naples for a while.
“I did that kind of experience. I wanted to know what it was like to live on the street. I have many friends who live on the street and who have that kind of lifestyle. In my case, it was not a choice. Well, it was kind of a choice because I accepted it. I did not run away from it. So, I just kind of living on the street for some time. It was interesting to see how society sees you differently. Even your self-worth goes down because of the way society looks at you.”
There are many environmental, humanitarian, and educational visions dear to Ösel’s, including his Global Tree Initiative (GTI), Eco-village Space, and One World Orphanages Project, which will provide family, education, and support to the most destitute children in developing countries. These projects all spring from Ösel’s heart organization, Universal Clear Light.
Ösel will continue making documentary films and sharing his unique Being Experiences with people around the world.
In 2015, Ösel led a pilgrimage to India and Nepal. There, he co-founded, organized, and volunteered with Revive Nepal, a charitable initiative to provide relief to Nepalis who suffered in the devastating April earthquake that year. A key project was building an eco-friendly earthquake-proof school.
Ösel shares his thoughts and ideas with the people he meets around the world – in coffee shops, Dharma centers, on the beach, in the mountains. This planet is his home, a place where we all can help each other, every minute of every day. (One-Big-Love.com)
