Whatsup Leo? Back on your game, this vid is massively helpful. However, I have a suggestion that you change the title. I almost didn’t watch it because I was thinking ” I have already started long ago, this video is for total newbies ” based on the title “how to get started” If others have a similar thought process this video could be missed by some of your long-time viewers. I would change it just to “Best Techniques for Self-Actualization” so some don’t get the wrong idea that it’s only helpful for beginners. I am far from a beginner, already implementing a massive % of these things but the video is still very helpful to remind me of other ones I am not doing anymore or haven’t tried yet, as well as the validation of many of the things I am currently doing.

Spencer says:

Leo, Thank you so much for your passion, understanding, creativity and love. I discovered your videos 2 years ago but am now getting getting serious about the path thanks to you. Keep up the good work man. I love seeing you evolve and i’m super excited to be joining you on the journey! You’ve given my life a far greater direction. Peace brother!

Patrick says:

Leo, I want you to know your work has a profound affect on my life. I married young and now have a child and it is a difficult journey to find the truth while retaining a conventional lifestyle. I wonder as I just had a child how an experience like that would shift your perspective on the world. Perhaps you have achieved a level of awareness where you can retain your place. I’m not sure. Either way, you are my guide, and you will never know me. Please continue to be my teacher.

Ahsen says:

Do anyone know where can I buy psychedelics from. I am living in Turkey. Thanks.

Ben says:

You mention that a lot of the bad theory we have will prevent us from retaining new theory, and that we must unwire this bad theory that’s taking up space. How do we do this?

Thanks for another spectacular video!

Elias says:

My purpose in life is to get friends (meaningful relationships), but there is no courses on friendships and I don’t know any good book eather…

Amorid Abderrahim says:

Thank you Leo, a wonderful video. It goes on many aspects of life. I take it as an

enlighement course.

The way you present it helped me a lot to understand it.

Following you through the video I shifted from time to know more about something like NLP technics.

I want you to clarify it (NLP) I think it will be useful for many of your audiance.

thank you very much LEO.

Monty says:

I’m a 50 yo from the US – saw your very compelling interview with Kurt Jaimungal in his ToE podcast. Idealism/Analytical Idealism (Kastrup/Spira) really resonates with me as a metaphysics. You’re very well versed and aritculate – so at the moment my BS meter hasn’t gone off yet. I want to do a 5MeoDMT retreat. I’m not sure which ones are good. I believe a fair amount of problems are caused by human ignorance. I suspect having an experience where the true fabric of reality is revealed is an ultra powerful motivator for profound change. All the literature and videos that I’ve seen on NDE’s, the experiencers don’t “think/ignorant” they “know” the non-dual nature of reality. In other words, their gnosis manifests in profound behaviour change – the NDE literature indicates as much. I think if I had some sense of “what’s it all about” I think that’d temper some of the crappy realities of day-to-day life. Is this a bad way/motivator for seeking the experience?
