There are 2 sides to our Personal Power.
The Light. The Dark.
We need them both.
Love and Profit is a choose-your-own adventure guide to the Light-side and Dark-side work that sets free your Inner Guru and leads you to your Source.
Use this knowledge to see the way through any decision, to get your Personal Energy in line with Universal Flow, to manifest consciously, to build your impact business, or to anchor love into leadership, work, relationships, and your creations.
Use this to become fully alive and help others do the same. We're in this together. Everything will change.
That Sounded A Little Serious.
Do you know why the Jedi failed? They were afraid of the Dark. They rejected the messy, wild, and natural emotions of hate, anger, and fear. Their advice was to ignore these feelings, sedate them, avoid them. "Control" them. Perhaps you know people like that. And what happened? These forces grew stronger right under the Jedi's noses, stole their most powerful and promising member, destroyed everything they had built, and took over the galaxy. Epic fail. This is exactly what happens in real life when we avoid the Dark. We've all seen overly-positive, unaware, "polished" "leaders" completely toppled by their subconscious darkness. That's what happens when we don't look deeply within.
Darth Vader and the Emperor, despite being way cooler than the Jedi, ultimately failed as well. They were seduced by the raw power of the Dark and did not understand that the slow-burning Light always calls to people's hearts. They resorted to fear-based control to maintain a shaky grip on a rebellious galaxy. In the end their work burned to rubble. In real life, we've all seen "successful", "powerful" "leaders" who are actually miserable, afraid, and addicted. They are horrible to be around. They create very little of lasting value. No Light.
This "battle" will continue until we stop choosing sides.
My mission is to bridge the Light and Dark all of us have within us, to find our true nature beyond both. To help us find our Spiritual Source. And use it in practical life. That's what I do. I actually do that.
The Source is real. It creates both the "good" and the "bad" of our life experiences. It contains our purpose, our happiness, and our greatest creative potential. Most of us have had glimpses of Source. To use it fully and level up like an ancient master we need to embrace both human sides - Light and Dark.
I can show you how. It involves unlearning what school taught you. It involves learning the language of your Personal Energy. It involves using your body as a lightning rod for your Soul. It's fun. Read the articles, listen and watch, download the resources, ask a question, explore the projects, attend an online teaching, or contact me about coaching and facilitation. You know, it's the internet.
From our Source we merge both our wisdom and our wildness, our initiative and our surrender, and we can live a life full of Love and Profit.
We're Jedi, Sith, Witches and Wizards. Let's do magic.
Love, David Papa

I give David a 10
Working with David is great. It's easy, he's 100% authentic in his delivery, he has great energy, and I trust him completely. He's approachable and he's fun. We were able to explore EQ together with the whole department! It not only helped open the door to the EQ world to everyone, but it was practical and helped us be a stronger team that can help each other emotionally as well. I give David a 10.
David is a rare speaker
I saw David keep an audience of entrepreneurs engaged so much they didn’t want to let him go. He did a long Q&A session with relaxed confidence and profound understanding of the subject. David is one of those rare speakers who not only structures a talk beautifully but adapts to his audience along the way. He breaks down complicated topics into simple concepts with a very natural sense of humor. He's a truly enjoyable and caring speaker!
David surprised me
I saw David speak about spirituality in business - a topic I usually avoid since the content tends to be unempirical and rarely pushes me to think in new ways (that I trust). David surprised me. He's able to talk about issues that are generally on the far side of the "soft" side of business--love, meaning, spirituality, emotion--using current science as well as practical exercises that powerfully convey why these "soft" domains are centrally important to doing good business.
Working with David was Life-changing
David, it was thanks to your teachings that I discovered my passion. After thousands of euros spent on personal development materials, seminars and books, I was able to uncover my passions and purposes in just one session with you. The info was interactive, easy to follow, and life changing. So I just wanted to give you a big thank you because "BeLiveInc" wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for you.

David has a unique way with words
David has a unique ability to invoke emotions in people, always knowing the right questions to ask. He has a unique way with words. I walk away from meeting him with at least one phrase that I constantly refer to in my thoughts that sustains my progress. His ability to listen and understand, then suggest techniques based on that knowledge is above-and-beyond anything I've experienced with other facilitators. I'm very thankful to have worked with David.
