Hi Leo. This question is completely unrelated to the video, but I figured I would have better luck reaching you here than on a video you posted in March. My question regards self-acceptance. Here it is:

When accepting your ‘sins’, does this preclude talking back to negative thoughts? In other words, is talking back to negative thoughts a form of resistance? Should I simply love, accept and understand this one who has negative thoughts?

Regards,

Ben

Hunter Arrington says:

The forum might be a good place to go for this question as well. Leo is on their often.

Kyle says:

Does Joseph Campbell’s work relate to this topic?

Christine says:

hi, Leo. I agree about this society being low-brow and toxic. No wonder I’ve felt like shit for so long. Thank you for your talks.

Christine says:

Leo,
I enjoyed listening to this video. You are right on. A few years back I read Return to the Centre by Bede Griffiths and this really opened my eyes to the fact that all religions point to the same thing. He says religions are like the fingers and all lead to the palm. Another author, Benet Canfield’s book, Rule of Perfection talks about God as being our will. This also blew me away and it resonates so deeply. So glad you are talking about this topic!

Dominic says:

Finally you go to the real deal; I’ve never deeply resonates with the purely self-help talks basically because they seemed band-aid, not touching the core of our experience (which self-mastery implies and unconditional love is the flowering of), maybe because of me having meditated much before I got into the other topic-stuffs. Very excited! Many practical things overlap with what I’m writing about in a book im working on and even adds/clarifies much – I love your way of presenting stuff and thinking – keep up keep up.

You forgot to post the links Leo

Leo Gura says:

Ooops! Sorry! Thanks for reminding me.

Hey Leo, missing links….

Hi Leo,

Thank you for the most brilliant “sage” video. I have spent nearly the last twenty years investigating all this stuff, on and off throughout the years, you managed to sum it all up in one video!

However I have been lucky enough to be able to really concentrate on it for the last couple of years, as I’m not in my fifties and have taken four years out, I’m just starting my third year. I had my “experience” about a month ago. Non duality is definately one of the major keys, I have to say its easier said than done, but am trying to back there, its truly a wonderful ‘state of Mind’. Words cant describe it.

Thank you again, wish you had been around 20years ago it would of saved me a lot of time!

Peace and Love says:

Hey Leo,

Thank you so much for creating this video. I’ve been wanting to talk about this on the forum for a long time. Thank your for sharing LOVE and the TRUTH.

What you are mentioning here reminds of OMNISM- The belief that no religion is the only truth, but that truths are found in them all.

When I was watching the Sage Video you also made me think of the term ASCENDED MASTER. For Example Jesus, Babaji, Lady Nada, Afra, Buddah, Quan Yin, etc.

In the Ascended Master Teachings, Ascended Masters are believed to be spiritually enlightened beings who in past incarnations were ordinary humans, but who have undergone a series of spiritual transformations originally called initiations.

Just thought I would throw that out there. I’m sure you already knew that.

Jack Goelz says:

BTW, gnosis in English (unlike other languages where spelling and pronunciation have some relationship to each other) is usually pronounced with the g silent as in nosis. In German it is pronounced as you pronounced it and as it is spelled.

And as usual, consistently wonderful, and this is from someone who has been in the mystical business (practicing Gnostic with Buddhist affiliations) for more than 40 years.

Thanks Leo,

Hey Leo,
By pure accident, on the same day as I watched this episode, I stumbled upon this lecture by Jon Stewart from the Radcliffe Institute at Harvard. It reminded me of many of the concepts you describe in this recent video. I prefer your take on it, you are more expansive and articulate, but it was cool to have confirmation from another source, as I like to cross reference everything I hear about or read on the net. There were some shortsighted parts, but I think it was more Hegel’s than Stewart’s.
I thought you might like to listen to it.

Leo, i have been studying this topic for 4 years. what i dont understand is if the Muslims are also deep in this
state of mine why do some of them kill ?

Leo Gura says:

For every one enlightened Muslim, there’s a million unenlightened ones.

Unfolder says:

Excellent summary!Your story boils down to something I thought you would mention also:

PERENNIAL PHILOSOPHY.

Cheers Leo, much appreciated!!
