  1. My advice is just to start really small. Try a microdose, then go to .5g then to 1.0g and so on. Just be mindful of what kind of mindset and intention you have.
  2. I value education. So I think you should back to school at the very least on a part time basis while working on music production. University is not just about academia which will improve cognition, time management skills, and studying skills; but you also meet people, get new perspectives, and open more doors for yourself. you're job at 18 should be pursuing higher education to give yourself a reliable grounded skill/degree that people will pay you for while pursuing your passion and self-actualizing yourself.
  3. If only once, I'd say before the retreat. but if you're up to it, why not before and after.
  4. @GenuinePerspectiveXC I don't see it as virtue signaling. It is honorable to empathize with the situations of others and to want to help them as if they were your brother or sister. Of course it's difficult and clearly unwanted by others, but it's like taking steps. Investing in the children of today for a better future for all human beings. It doesn't mean you have to invite strangers into your home, but it could mean providing asylum, shelter, and education. One step at a time for everyone. "It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace." - Bill Hicks.
  5. yeah... I will also echo that, it's not natural remedies that are overrated, it's Pharma prescribed medication that is overrated. Sleeping is a natural process, if you need drugs to get to sleep, there is something deeper going on and it should be paid attention to.
  6. @Leo Gura Yeah man! I think technology could be strongly utilized when it comes to our government. If we use our phones as a medium to further connect with our representatives, then we could increase our democracy as well as the accountability of our officials. And what I mean by this is having App with a good UI, that easily shows me who is my representatives are, voting history, what is the senate voting for today, or next week. This vision could be bigger and more intricate, but essentially using technology to increase the people's voice and awareness within the local --> state --> federal politics. @Norbert Lennartz You could acknowledge the benefits of society though. The fact that you're even reading and writing is because of public paid education... Even if you went to a private school paid by your parents, your parents earned money off others, and required others to educate you. You can't run from the fact that we are all social animals and collectively we thrive when we work together. Isn't it possible that you are just seeing one side of it? how many books have you read about the other side?
  7. The only thing I can see someone being concerned with is that it has gluten, but if you don't care about that, it's fine. Move at your pace!
  8. It's not just Longevity, its also general health! The gut has a yuuge impact on brain development since a large part of brain chemicals such as serotonin are produced in the gut. It seems that no one has shared this, but there is actually a Gut and Psychology diet made by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. She touts that it can help individuals recover from various ailments such as autism, dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, depression, and schizophrenia <-- which she claims is developed from a poor gut. http://www.gapsdiet.com
  9. A spiritual diet is one where you eat what is right and healthy for your nature.
  10. when you reach high states of consciousness. The body appears ghost-like, so it's happening, but its not really there. Additionally, there is no "where" to go, if you go somewhere its in the imagination where all perceptions come from.
  11. okay, well if that's how we are defining enlightenment, then I am enlightened and so is half of the people on this forum.
  12. Interesting, I'll check out the book. Not really sure why you're against community though. I haven't read the book, but is it not possible that we can collectively extend our idea of the state. Specifically, we can connect the general public to the state in such a way that it can hold the state more accountable than it already is. Additionally, why not acknowledge the good things government has done such as providing roads, education, and general appliances at an affordable rate for everyone?
  13. @tecladocasio Very good!
  14. Watch the seasons year after year.
