The YOU beyond you shares your experiences to help readers reach their true potential. You stated in our previous interview that people need to stay motivated to survive. How do you stay motivated?
Well motivation alone is not sufficient. One can be motivated all the time but reach no place. You can compare motivation to a muscles car, if you have a bad driver behind the wheel the experience would generate a lot of chaos. Before being motivated, one should filter all negativity acquired from the outside, by avoiding putting himself in unpleasant scenarios or situations and reasoning his actions and reactions, thus implementing a system where he uses his consciousness in everything he does. We need to be proactive in acquiring knowledge and not let data in, in a passive manner. I personally have removed TV, news, unhealthy social interactions, and all sorts of data that can get to my mind in an unconscious way by totally avoiding being exposed to them.
Once this is in place, you can put a clear vision for your life and the lack of demotivators can leave space to motivation which can be directed towards productive goals. Remove all negative data intake from what surrounds you and your mind and thoughts will be automatically shift towards productivity.
You stated that the majority of what we know is only partial. What advice would you give to someone who is struggling to come to terms with that?
Yes, I believe all what we know and all what we could ever know no matter how ample it is, would remain partial in nature and this is due to the fact that we as humans are just a small fragment of the reality we live in, and our brains can only read a limited spectrum of it. The way to deal with that is to always take this as a constant and never have rigid beliefs in life which always lead to aggressiveness and mind-blocks.
Knowing that our knowledge is partial in any subject should always lead to more lenient social interactions.
Moreover, one should work on segregating these partial realities inside of him and encompass his logic as to what to keep and what to let go, on daily basis. This is a strength and not a weakness, as if our knowledge was rigid and complete, our humanity would be stagnant with little room of development.
Do you plan to write more books on this same subject?
Yes, this was the tip of the iceberg. I am intending to write a second book explaining more in depth the dynamics I communicated to readers in The YOU beyond you – The knowledge of the willing.

In The You Beyond You, author Ramzi Najjar discusses the different ways in which the body and mind are negatively affected by various inputs. The author provides examples of how to minimize these kinds of effects and replace them with positive inputs. This book goes even further by exploring how to go beyond these positive inputs to actually accessing “the source,” the collective consciousness of the universe in making life not just bearable but intentional and designed in the way we want it to be. The book touches on even the simple things we may not consider as very impactful to life but actually they are like the meals we eat, the content we choose to take in, how we prevent and treat illnesses in our bodies. On a fundamental level, the author covers all the basic elements to illustrate how on the most elementary level they are all connected internally within us and then are manifested externally.
Author Ramzi Najjar’s writing is easy to follow, flows easily, and if received with an open and willing mindset, then it can be life changing. The author builds on some established ideas. For example, you are what you eat. The interesting and compelling part was the author making the connection to show how what we eat becomes a part of our basic genetic component, then further becomes a part of our existence and how we interact with the outside world. Interacting negatively with others can have negative results and although interacting positively with others does not always guarantee a positive outcome, the ultimate results will all show the interdependence of all human interaction.
I recommend this motivational book to anyone who is on a journey of self discovery. The You Beyond You is written for people who are ready to elevate beyond a personal level of consciousness to understanding the collective consciousness better.

The YOU beyond you shares your experiences to help readers reach their true potential. Why was this an important book for you to write?
I did not intend to publish the book at first. The book started as 10 years notes and realizations scattered here and there on my diary. Life I believe is a big mind game to balance things and it requires a lot of patience and tolerance from one side and a lot of boldness and courage from the other side but mostly a lot of noting and analyzing in both cases. These notes made me reflect and meditate for long on the nature of our existence and in view of the knowledge I acquired from a multitude of sources throughout my life and from my personal experience, I was able to draw my own conclusions about life’s nature and dynamics. When the lock-downs due to COVID 19 started, I had more free time than usual and I decided at this stage to share my knowledge with others, especially that during such hard times, people need to keep strong and motivated to be able to survive what they were enduring, especially that this knowledge helped me go through a lot in my life.
What do you feel is a good first step on the road to positive personal development?
I believe that the first step in anyone’s positive personal development is to realize that the majority of what he knows could be partial in nature and treat his judgement accordingly when dealing with anything. When one does that and is faced with any situation, he will seek to gather all missing pieces of the puzzle before acting and this gathering process is what lets him advance in the right direction.
What is a piece of advice you wish someone had given you when you were younger?
- That reality is not only based on my rigid beliefs and personal convictions as all these could be wrong. It is rather fluid in nature and can constantly change when proper knowledge is acquired. Reality is sometimes a life-long process.
- That my senses and thoughts are limited in nature and can shape my life in many ways both in my favor or against it if mishandled. Therefore, seeking knowledge from multiple sources is one effective way to deal with such truth.
- To never judge too soon and to form a bigger picture of any context before acting within that context.
What is one thing that you hope readers take away from your book?
The way to properly handle their lives based on the information I shared.

I enjoyed reading the chapter ‘Letting the Right Memory Run our Life,’ because of how great the author expounded about the mind. I learned about pure memory, being positive, and how prepared we should be psychologically. Some of the things we do subconsciously are a result of the energy around us. Other chapters that I immensely enjoyed reading about were those that spoke about body pollution, mind pollution, and getting imprinted with the correct memory.
In this book, you will learn that there are solutions to most problems if you are committed to look for solutions. The author advises that as an individual, focus on being a better person before trying to be helpful to the next person. The energy you carry in you will be reflected in your actions. Every human being has feelings and the author writes that there is nothing wrong with expressing one’s feelings.
