Galactic Gladiator Youn1que :
Youn1que is a play on words for "You are a Unique Individual", it represents knowing yourself as a unique individual with all your flaws and perfections, finding your passion in life and cultivating it and your talents to help progress yourself and the world to a better place. It's about recognizing the uniqueness of everyone & everything in the universe, even down to the atom because even no 2 atoms are the same, and respecting that uniqueness/difference of everything, to spread Unity through the world and cosmos. Galactic Gladiator is being a peace-gladiator on earth fighting to defend the Universal Spirit of Life through means of ahimsā/non-violence, art, health/natural knowledge, & awareness, for the protection of Nature, Virtue, & Humanity. Being free from external influence and choosing what to take from your experiences, you are in total control of your destiny. You are the 1 that can make a difference, and together we are 1. Be free to be yourself. Be creative. Be your best. Be unique! ॐ
Music isn't just about what you hear, it's about what you feel. It's an energy that permeates your heart and soul.
