    Well, to an enlightened human being, there are no enlightened human beings, really... it's just a figure of speech. Indeed, one cannot even say that there are really human beings, bodies, or perspectives at all. So from the enlightened perspective, all of these cannot be said to exist.

    But if you believe in bodies and perspectives, then karma is also true, and each person will reincarnate in a way that reflects the effects of their actions in this life and all previous ones.

    It's not that I exactly believe it, but it was the best way I found to express the idea. So, is karma true to you?

    I'm a poker player at the moment but trying to change that. Don't wan't to be miserable all my life ;)

    I feel it's empty.
    Boring. Same shit every day.
    Meaningless because there is no contribution there. Not that "scalable" either for most people if that's the right word.

    People might say "but playing poker is fun".
    Yeah it can be if you play once in a while or when you feel like it.
    But try playing full time. Day after day, week after week,  month after month, year after year. Then we'll talk ;)
    Even if you become a winner it's not like you just sit and win every day, lol.

    But I guess some people really are passionate and love the game.
    But even some top pros who makes insane amounts of money have decided to quit and do something else.

    I know the question was more about the ethical side but just want to throw this out there so people think twice.

    Bro, start playing the great game of Pot-Limit Omaha and you'll never get bored! :D

    Also could you please tell me, after doing the letting go, did you always end it with the feeling of relief, disappearance of of the feeling that you wanted to let go of ,or did you just finish after one hour, with the feeling still being in you? Thanks 

    In the end I have total or almost complete relief. There are days which you'll have more resistance and sometimes you won't be able to let go of it all. Don't beat yourself up for that, it's normal. Remember that when you let go of wanting to let go, you can let go of everything :)

    I also suffer from social anxiety. 

    May I ask you:

    1. How long did it take to overcome social anxiety with letting go?

    2. How long were the sessions of letting go? How many a day did you do? Like in the morning and before going to sleep? During the day?

    3. How did you go about surrendering the feeling about social anxiety? Did you go back to memories when you were anxious to get the feeling and surrendered to these feelings or how did you do that? 

    4. How did your sessions of letting go look like? Did you sit in your room, went for a walk etc. ?



    1. After one month of daily practice I was already feeling way lighter in social situations. I had some REALLY serious anxiety problems in the past, and today, with almost 6 months of intense practice, I can confidently say I have close to zero anxiety in my daily life. 

    2. Usually 20-40 minutes, one session a day. Usually in the night one hour before sleep. If a specific situation triggered your anxiety, accept let go of the feeling when you get home.

    3. I actually try to work on what I'm feeling in the moment or in the day. Most of your trauma will manifest itself in your daily life, so by now I would recommend you to just to let go of what comes to you. Be aware of situations that trigger your anxiety/fear and work on that in the end of the day. If you want to go deeper, try to understand the root cause of the feeling. Recognize the patterns and fix them.

    4. I just sit in my bed, close my eyes and zone on what I'm feeling. Nothing special :)

    Good luck bro!

  5. @InfinitePotential nice, man... it's kinda scary to think how many people live their entire lifes with a huge amount of suppressed/repressed emotions and, consequently, not being able to find true happiness... personally, it got me rid of social anxiety, many worries and past traumas. It takes time to process everything, and I haven't yet, but the journey is amazing. Everyday you feel better and better, calmer, way more confident and you get to understand why people are doing what they're doing, why they think what they think... I'm 100% certain I don't need any self-actualization content for the rest of my life. This book is Truth or, at least, the most practical Truth you'll find.

    Sounds like you’re suggesting one should pursue suffering and unhappiness?

    Not at all. My point is that running away from pain by trying to "reach" enlightenment (happiness) is a dangerous trap. We gotta be honest, we don't give a f*ck about Truth, it's all about happiness. "Self-actualization" is just another way of escaping from insatisfaction, fear and pain, 'cause it gives us hope. Letting go is the only viable option.

    That would be missing the bullshit if you know what I'm sayin.

    C'mon, that's bullshit :D:D:D 

  7. 1.  Chasing "enlightenment" is just an incessant avoidance to suffering and unhappiness, and, therefore, a search for eternal happiness. Nothing more, nothing less. GET RID OF THE MENTAL MASTURBATION.

    2. There's no such magical phenomenon that suddenly happens to you just because you been meditating, doing self-inquiry and shit. This is pure and dangerous illusion.

    3. "Spiritual path" is complete B.S.

    4. "Spiritual knowledge" = ego's favorite distraction.

    5. Beliefs and the stories we tell about ourselves and the world are just made up by the mind. Let go of everything. "You" don't exist at all :D 

    6. Leo is completely deluded, although his ego may deny it to death. He can only realize Truth if, and only if, he drops all of his beliefs about reality as a whole and finally start being.

    7. Psychedelics won't make you realize Truth. Ever. It's just an experience and nothing more. 

    8. Truth is.

    9. Emotions are just thoughts and conversations about a feeling. Don't label or judge, just let it be.
