Hey Leo, I’m a 21-year-old athlete and yea I know you believe competition is stupid and yea I’m well aware it is stupid, but I do enjoy my sport. I was thinking of the moment I finally win a medal and I’m acknowledged as a good athlete, would you believe it would be a good idea to reject the medal? I do believe this would be the more difficult thing to do emotionally because after all, it is something I have always wanted to achieve but I rather choose the truth which is that materialistic items are nothing and you don’t gain anything from it and it will never fix the void in me. Replies would be greatly appreciated.

Romer, it does not matter whether you accept or reject the medal. You need to actually see that it does not matter. else, your action would be mechanical.

Leo, brilliant as usual. As a New York Yankee fan I will try to reign in my self- bias against the Boston Red Sox, but it may be a losing battle. By the way any chance of addressing again the subject of free will? As we evolve spiritually do we gradually experience greater control?

Hi, Leo

Enlightenment tells me that the only truth is HERE and NOW, I am the center of reality. Everything outside of me is an illusion.
I am creating everything.

So why bother? Why suffering for someone else’s problems? Why suffering for my parents when they don’t even exist? They’re just my imagination. Why lowering my emotional vibration which will only manifest more of the same hellish reality?

Other people’s suffering IS NOT REAL. Not even MINE! It’s already hard enough to cope with your own unconscious creation and suffering, why bother with others’ too?

Chopra says we create our own reality. Some people live in heaven, others in hell. It’s a choice you make once you become more and more aware of WHO you really are.

Once you know the wars, the news, the devil, the exploitation and murdering of animals etc ARE NOT REAL why suffer for them?

Just don’t go back to the previous stages. I hope you didn’t run out of subjects.

Cris,

“enlightenment tells me”….. there is no me
“I am the center of the universe”….. there is no I
“someone else’s problems” …. there is no someone else
“my parents… my imagination”….. there is no my
“other’s suffering” …. there is no other

For god sake stop assuming and conceptualizing and thinking…… see things as they are for a moment….
