  1. Remind yourself that you are reacting to the words that have no meaning
  2. Merry Xmas
  3. Better to be addicted to Actualized than crack, my friend
  4. @Sahil Pandit don't think I can get the balls to separate, but rolling them is good enough for me Is it necessary for the balls to be separated?
  5. I was at my local second hand store when I saw these Chinese baoding balls, and they were extremely cheap so I decided to buy it Can anybody share some insights or experiences with these balls?
  6. @Sahil Pandit yeah dude, it really does relax the body. The bells makes me vibrate sometimes when I listen to the balls closely I want to know if there is more to these balls?
  7. @bejapuskas Me either, I don't believe in quick-step solutions but gotta attract them to self-actualization . But I'm sure a more in-depth exercise would also do the trick Goodluck!!
  8. Just realised my reply was really lacking one crucial ingredient. Results You can tell them what to do to try and solve their problems BUT you have to make sure that it creates results for them. Let's take for example, they having motivational issues. You should give them an exercise which is 1) easy, 2) doesn't take long 3) effective. The exercise then should produce results from them. Then, you can feed them theory. One exercise comes to my mind is visualization practices which takes 10 mins everyday And if they do it and actually sees results then that's when you can reel them in The only reason I am here is because of Leo's exercises which actually created results. I could LITERALLY see the results and progression before me so in my mind, if I am actually progressing and making results because of Leo/Self-Actualization, I must carry on. This was just my personal experience on why I was convinced that Self-Actualization is beneficial for me
  9. Best way to convince someone is to find out what their problems are and tell them what to do to solve it via use of self-development If it works, they will be hooked. If not then there is no way to convince them Everybody wants to do something to BENEFIT them.
  10. The tree is made up of particles. It's made up of RAW data of the universe. It's made up of the universe There was never a tree, only the universe
  11. I think you need to focus on life-purpose first. @Sahil Pandit 's suggestion is amazing at getting you started and you should definitely do it. Hell, I'm going to do it now, because I haven't been in a quiet place for a while You need to find a path and stay on that path. Then everything will connect!
  12. I will chew on that as well. Great question on Epistemology
  13. I understand what you are saying, questioning is what's going to get you to places So are you going to deny that these church-folk are actually wrong? Do they not also have an essence of Truth? Who said that their God doesn't exist (Was it you?)? Why would somebody believe in God in the first place... Unless they are directed influenced by God. We create our own reality, so they have created their own God So we create this illusion of non-duality as well then? Surely? Yes because we're picturing what non-duality is, that's where your mind is still trying to create a check for non-duality, just as your mind is trying to check if church-folk are real When you try to picture non-duality, you're still creating reality
  14. Because you're using your mind to check if non-duality is reality. You need to stop using your mind to come to conclusions and need to listen to your heart and awareness
  15. This is actually very smart... Indeed it must be harder to be attached to the thoughts of somebody's else, but do you only observe people on the forums? Is there a way to observes one's thoughts in real life? Does a power exist? I wonder I'm going to try this (observe on forums more closely), because I know what you say is so relatable lol Also I love you too <3
  16. I realised that there is a change in how I meditate and I'm becoming lazier in meditating. I know some people will responding that this is the awareness becoming effortless. That awareness is effortless => I am becoming effortless But it's starting to feel like that I am just now sitting down, and kinda "day-dreaming". I'm not even doing any observation anymore... I do get the insights towards the end. But the observation/awareness isn't strong throughout. It's as if there is nobody to be awareness and I am just sitting I don't feel connected, relaxed, or feel anything. I'm just sitting. Any thoughts?
  17. Personally I think routine is important. The routine should tell you that you are no longer you but now an observer or all of reality (whatever floats your boat). Routine should tell you to stop being you and be something else for once. But you are right about the intention... I've lost my intention for meditation. I simply do it for the sake of it. I think this could also be a problem for me, since no energy or profound motivation is present. Since I'm not seeking for an answer or Truth, it will very much feel like sitting... I'm going to direct my intention towards personal development for now Thanks for this insight, I think it will definitely help
  18. I just meditated and immediately, my mood and nature of meditation has completely changed. I made serious observations, and tested Do Nothing with observation. I guess this is my own personalised meditation rountine, which may only work for me but eh I will share two major insights My addiction to videogames/fantasies is not just rooted in entertainment/dopamine/etc. It's rooted in identity! My friends, and the people I am comfortable with are gamers and geeks. This only means that I only relate and talk to these people BECAUSE I have something in common with them. This actually enforces my addiction to games, since I feel like I have to play games or watch Star Trek to belong to these groups of people. However, I reminded myself, I only belong in one area. One place. Reality. I literally pictured myself being a single DOT, a single star, a single point, and I stayed there for a good 5 mins (I think, no idea how long I stayed there for). This is just an amazing insight, my addiction is partly my identity that I created Secondly, a lot of insecurities were out there. I let go of everything and just observed the insecurity. It went from my hair, my face, my looks, the view of other people, which is now starting to become passive. Paying less attention to that shit I hope I can go deeper with this new style. Finally something new, and the insights/ideas above really motivated me to change towards observation. Thank you all
  19. I will do The Truth as always been within you, but gotta search for it. But I've taken a break from that, I'm just trying to develop myself personally, something which I have lacked heavily. Of course I will go back to Truth, since personal development is some-what linked to Truth but motive currently is for personal development. Gotta build a ego so I can deconstruct it, right? I'm awful at this topic. I have no insights whatsoever, going to need serious readings for this too
  20. It does feel very much like half-assing. To me, it just feels extremely lazy, and afterwards I feel lazy as well. I'm glad somebody has gone through this, hehe I do think the root of the problem is the nature of "Do-Nothing". Even though it is a great tool for detaching yourself, but it's just as you say, you get completely lost in it. Then when you try to get out of the lost, you actually start to Do, which goes against the practice Going to also try Do Nothing with observation, which are kinda conflicting practices but I'm going to work around with the idea and explore more with the other suggestions above. This sounds quite amazing. You've been practicing for such a long time and on top of that, psychedelics. Your mind is not the average person's. I hope one day I will reach to your state, allowing everything to just FLOW
  21. @Hellspeed I'll give that a go. I'll try out some new breathing techniques @okulele So the technique I use is sorta one I made. It's a mix of Do-Nothing and clearing your head. What I do is simply ignore all my thoughts but allow them to accumulate. Resist nothing but detach from them. Try not to follow them but if I do, just watch Most of the time I can do this, but in actuality, it's just me sitting there... Daydreaming, watching my thoughts accumulate. I sit for long periods of time, and I do enjoy it but it feels like something is missing. Now I feel kinda lazy whilst meditating, as if something is wrong I'll give your video a go for my next meditation. I've never went into these practices or ideas, so I guess Shakti energy could be a good start. Now I'm excited
  22. Woops, I put this in the Self-Actualization section, could a Mod move it to Meditation, consciousness... section please
  23. @Recursoinominado yep that is what i thought it was about. Perhaps the audios i tried are for a different purpose Do you have anymore recommendations
  24. @Recursoinominado so I'm trying the website you recommended, and just listening to one MP3 file but it is sounds of the ocean, what does this mean? Can sounds of this nature affect your overall mood and make you, let's say, confident?
  25. I saw @Recursoinominado recommendation, but more would be awesome. To be honest, a link to a reliable guide to do this work would be great!
