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?

Max Gron says:

No there’s no control in spirituality, if you truly had self-control you would believe in reality literally without religious mumbo jumbo, without spirituality. You’re window dressing, everyone else except you and me disbelieve their beliefs except Leo’s teachings. Since you’re being involved in materialism which is OK if it involves money, you should drop the self-agenda of moving on with your petty life and you should do something big and special in your life, and drop culture, not be Americanly or culturally biased, you’re not tapping into the extremes of Leo, and why is it about you? There’s no self or other, only you exist, therefore you should stop being selfish.

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….

Max Gron says:

There’s no self or other, that must mean to care about nothing, not even care about occasionally using you to explain you, which means to be you, you have to do you things, to be neither you nor I likewise you have to do no self or other things. You should believe in the actions without the word games, and you should be different to everybody else. I can’t think for a second you’re conforming except that you conform to neither selfish nor selfless Buddhist logic. Think about people larger than yourself.

Max Gron says:

As I misunderstand the first times with every video and I’m unpopular with everything I do, in reality the true understanding of self-bias is that you mustn’t enjoy yourself, you must be selfless and thus mustn’t have any fun, of which my understanding is that it’s integral, impartial, objective distinctive rubbish. Anything of high quality is just having luxury, classiness or money and not being tied in to serious no fun doctor shit (yes Leo is a doctor, his photos of pulling faces look very psychiatric). What I need is to joke around for some serious humour, I was never happy with life from the day I was born, and it’s about to be gruelling now, turkey! Things don’t sit well when I can’t make any changes in my identity, so screw everyone in a community of not changing, no one really cares about the root of the self-centred problem and I’m not self-centred, I only care about my well-being, not so much getting my way, if it’s just your needs it’s self-centred which everyone does, it’s harder to be selfish. And not listening to me everyone’s the same in their biases and won’t change the rules for me. As this may surprise you, I’m joking.
