Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Alex Momcilovic. He shares his experiences on his website and Social media – From being a drug addict to becoming 4.5 years clean and helping others on a spiritual journey! Let's hear his Story!
Hi, Please introduce yourself and tell us about what it is that you do.
My name is Alex Momcilovic, and I have a YouTube channel called Becomingnobody Alex Momcilovic. My website is becomingnobody.org.
Can you please tell us about your journey?
I am a recovering drug addict with 4.5 years clean. During active addiction, I sold drugs, robbed people, and engaged in many acts of violence. I hurt my family and friends as well as myself. I used pretty much every drug there is and in massive amounts. I was unable to function without it and became more sick, depressed, anxious, and miserable. I had many run-ins with the law and a terrible reputation. Once getting clean (after facing several felony charges), I started upon a spiritual journey studying and practicing different spiritual, yogic, and religious traditions from around the world. My YouTube content is primarily related to spiritual growth, practice, philosophy, nature of mind, positive thinking, and inspiration. As well as some drug addiction/ recovery content.
Please tell us about your Story
I am a member of two twelve-step recovery programs in which I share with others, listen with empathy, and work the steps of the program. These programs are so beneficial because we get to share others' pain, suffering, and growth as well as our own. And, we share the spirit of God in the rooms just as when Jesus says –
When two or more are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst of them.
To me, life is as the Hindu's say, the divine Lila or play of God. Through its illusionary (Maya) powers, God becomes all life and plays myriad roles while in its masks. Each creature is apart of the play of God as well as all life.
As we grow, our awareness begins to extricate itself from attachment to the mind and its desires. I see the individual soul as continuing to take birth in many different bodies as it grows and evolves. For me, all life and everything that happens in it is perfect as well as an opportunity to awaken. Each thing in my life is grist for the mill of awakening and can be used to bring me closer to God. Even the many things that happened to me in active drug addiction were all apart of my karma and a necessary part of my journey. There are so many different practices, philosophies, deities, methods, and ways to speak about the truth (or God), yet it all points to the same unsayable way. My aim is just to work on myself in order to get as free as I can. And in the process, hopefully help others get free. Ultimately we are all literally one being – one awareness flowing through and remaining within all things. To learn more about my philosophies and practices, please check out my content!
I have a book and blog on the way. The blog will be out at the start of the new year, and the book between the end of 2021 through early 2022
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
I have been successful through dedication, sustained effort, and spiritual practices. I practice many forms of yoga, including kriya and vinyasa yoga. I meditate daily using many different methods, such as vipassana and zen meditation. Through these practices, I have been able to quiet my mind, see its inner workings, and gain more insight into the nature of existence.
I also do chanting meditations and Japa. A big part of my practice is reading, studying, and meditating on spiritual literature. My girlfriend and I engage in many of these practices together.
