  1. 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

    I say this with complete sincerity, and not trying to be antagonistic, but... that is exactly what the church-folk say...  There is a man in the sky, and a heaven for good people...  Can you see why this explanation is not satisfying to me? 

     

    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

    I have always been open to (though skeptical) that non-duality is the absolute truth of reality.  How can I understand that it isn't just a concept, and is in fact, reality.  

    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 


  4. 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

    It's possible you are getting into a routine. Spend a few minutes connecting with your intentions first and see if that helps.

    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


  6. 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

    follow your path and believe you can find the truth by yourself in all part of the world ( there is better part, but if you can't see why, they are maybe not for you right now

    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? :P

    I m still having trouble with kundalini energy raising, but I m reading on it, and still fixing my own path.

    I'm awful at this topic. I have no insights whatsoever, going to need serious readings for this too :P

    I've been where you are. I used to do many hours per day of Do Nothing. But in reality, all I did was daydreaming.

    And I assure you: half-assing meditation will do nothing for you. It might even worsen your situation (emotions, neurosis, problems etc.)

    The goal is to observe the natural activity of the mind, which is very different from getting lost in it. Otherwise, you're feeding the whole thing. 

    I only had moments of, "OH! This is what meditation is all about" when I began taking Tai Chi classes. Using my body helps a lot to stay grounded. Sitting meditation doesn't really work for me. 

    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.

    what is fun, is I never meditated before this month, until I "feel it". ( smoked a lot of weed while laying down and listening to music for observation purpose those last 3-4 years ) and I used psychedelic 3 month ago ( and meditate while on LSD ). ( I m not a regular user at all of psychedelic, I just abuse 3 drop and 10 microdose day in 2 weeks to see the limit. )

    I can completely be out of this world while meditating now ( sober ), without any thought of "reality" entering. I can even loose  track of things in front of me, like if they have no label for my mind anymore. But as a guy who is "fuck society" hella fight club style life, since I m 6

    it probably work easy for me to disconnect and be in "fuck it mode", as I m almost jealous of people bullshit worry in fact.

     I always did things when "feel it" when it's right time for me to do things.

    I drop all fears aswell ( I maybe have still a bit of chaos that I want to keep inside me, but I need that for my lifestyle, and I don't need to be "FULL enlightnment" not currently )

    currently need chaos, and so I m keeping a bit of it for now.

    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 :)

     


  9. @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 :)


  10. 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?
