Hi Leo,

I have been watching your videos for over a year and reading books on your book list, these have been an enormous help form me to cope with the challenges of my life. Thank you!
I completely agree on your thoughts on marketing. I have always avoided buying stuff that is advertised and when I think about the mass production of most products, brands advertised and consumed all over the world it comes to my mind that soo huge amount of people are using unhealthy ones eg. creams, food and clothes made of polyester. These are spread all over the world and people are just buying and buying.

Each time you make research to grow intellectually yourself, do you read books randomly or you research information about the books you could read ?

Joe says:

Great video thanks for sharing Leo your work has had a massive influence on my life and my ways of thinking and I couldn’t be more grateful. Quick question maybe you spoke of this before but I haven’t heard but would like to hear your perspective on social media like facebook and snapchat as examples. Just curious do you partake in it or do you find it useful or a hindrance when it comes to trying to live a higher conscious life?

This is such an IMPORTANT subject, I am so happy you decided to do this video Leo! For years I have been telling people I am the “anti-consumer consumer”. I deplore mass marketing campaigns and try to teach people to be conscious and aware of the schemes that modern marketing is using on society to suck people into low quality conscious purchases. This problem is so virulent and pervasive in our society and it’s so important to have this side of the story told so people can wake up.
I am working on a website now and I clearly and honestly tell people about my marketing strategy, which is to raise the consciousness of my customers. I do not subscribe to low brow marketing techniques nor do I try to trick customers into buying something they don’t need.
Thanks so much for motivating me to be more honest and to take responsible marketing very seriously. I am happy to be one of those people working towards this aim. Thank you again, your site is an inspiration and you have changed my life in vast and innumerable ways and I am forever grateful.

It’s all true but who actually forces people to watch TV all day long or to listen to crappy radio stations swamped with advertisements ?

If one is attracted so this sort of stupidities, it means that one will be gravitating towards such crap whether by marketing or by any other means.

We could abolish or limit marketing but that wouldn’t solve the problem of mindless consumerism. As always it is all about the low level of consciousness.

This so called marketing is but one of many reflections of the collective unconsciousness. It is a symptom, not the root cause.
