  1. I don't believe that to be the case, he has read Jed Mckenna, Eckhart Tolle, David R. Hawkins, Been to Spiral Dynamics courses. What you see on camera isn't necessarily the best portray of someone, especially since he is running a stage orange business
  2. I think RSDTyler has a legit grasp of understanding non-dual awareness. I used to read his posts on rsdnation and he said he spends time with stage green hippie type people who fully buy into new-age spirituality, but he thinks he has a better grasp of understanding Truth more than them, and he's probably right. It's a shame that he's not willing to try Ayahuasca or DMT.
  3. I am currently living in Japan, though in a smaller city & I've been travelling all across Japan this year. You'll see online articles and reports of men and women not being interested in each other and yes you'll see video's on Youtube of strange men falling in love with robots etc. But these oddities are not reflections of the whole country. If you are into tentacle porn manga or obsessing over young female singing idols at age 40 you are not considered "cool" in Japan, actually they will view you as a man child or a little bit fucked up in the head. From what I've seen, I see young people wanting the same things as in western countries. They want careers of their choosing which gives them freedom & excitement, they want to spend time in their hobbies, they want to travel abroad, they want the best partner and may or may not want to get married and have kids. I agree there is still this more traditional ideal of women being housewives and wanting to rely solely on a man, but in talking to a lot of young women they express to me issues in the fact that they are pressured to go along with everything their boyfriend's think is right and find can't express their opinions. The more conscious men I meet have very happy and healthy relationships with their partners. Actually most western self help books are translated into Japanese such as Men are from mars, women are from venus and they seem to be popular. In regards to the articles saying that men are no longer interested in women, the issue seems to be that women want to get married and have children and then rely solely on their husbands income. Since Japanese people work so many hours the man might have to work 70 hours a week just to make enough for the family to survive. I don't think it's that men literally don't want to be with women, it's the fact that they don't want to put themselves through working ridiculous amounts of hours for the next 40 years just to survive. I know men in their 40s who never decided to settle down and get married and instead just spend time on their hobbies and dating younger women. I think Japan's future would be more promising if regular citizens could earn more money in their jobs while still only working 40-50 hours a week, have a work life balance and move up to stage green a little bit faster In Osaka & Tokyo there are elements of stage green arising which is great.
  4. @Leo Gura Thank you for replying and validating this experience!
  5. Hey everyone, thanks for reading. I am just posting because I was listening to A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle and he mentions "feeling into the inner emptiness where you believe the form of your body exists". Then I started to realise the outer sensations from my feet and hands are seemingly being projected into an empty field. The boundary of where I feel my "body" exists doesn't have a point I can locate, and it feels more empty and groundless than it ever had before. This is a bit strange because it almost feels like as I am writing this, I am watching my hands type and I am thinking of what to write but the sense of myself as the do-er is much less prominent. Here are some things that have helped me to reach this insight and continue to increase my consciousness - Consistent meditation each day (Do-nothing, Walking meditation), Self Inquiry, Leo's Guided Meditation (specifically the moment where he says to become reality), Leo's Mindfulness with Labelling Video (this allowed me to focus more on inner/outer feelings and catch my thoughts), Leo's How To Get Enlightened Guide, All of Leo's Self Inquiry Videos, Leo's thread with the list of consciousness exercises, Leo's Neti Neti Method Guided Inquiry video, Listening to the audios of Stillness Speaks + A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. I know that I still have a long way to go because even though I can recognise this inner emptiness inside and that I can't pin point "where I am", I still have so many questions left to validate- - Why is there something at all? Why is there not nothing? - Why do we seemingly wake up each day from the same perspective of a human? - Why in this consciousness would our bodies seemingly follow us around like zombies? - What is the purpose of reality? - Why does consciousness create?

  7. One of my biggest fears was never being good enough to achieve what I wanted, you just persevere your skills catch up to where you want to be and you can reap the benefits financially.
  8. Learning to be independent from your parents seems like something you cannot forgo. I moved out of my Dad's home 1 year ago and its forced me to learn things like budgeting, earning more in my business and valuing time a whole lot more. There's a lot to learn by going out on your own.
  9. I disagree, I feel Leo is following his highest passion in what he is sharing. He should go with whatever flows naturally and excites him. He's under no real obligation to serve us except for his own generosity.
  10. Incredible work, thank you so much
  11. I guess it's neither good nor bad. My experience living in Japan has shown me that life is viewed very differently by different cultures. In Japanese culture young people I've spoken too are very grateful to their parents for giving them life. Anti-natalism can definitely be idealogical, feel free to take the ideas from it but do not get sucked into the potential traps of their belief system.
  12. That sounds intense. Looks like your friend sent you the perfect video at the perfect time
  13. By which video did you discover Actualized.org? What made you stick around? Here's what happened to me ~ First I found Leo’s pick up criticism because it was posted on a popular pick up forum and I was into pick up. I was shocked at how blindly I was following the group-think of PUA and agreed with Leo that it can be highly manipulative. The people in the forum we’re bashing him like crazy so I immediately felt disenchanted with their ability to hear the criticisms. Then I watched the episodes on how to stop moralising, 40 signs that you are neurotic and 30 ways society f***s you. These videos really started to challenge my world views and I would often think about the ideas which stuck out to me like moral relativism and why society functions the way it does. Watching Leo’s older videos on Spiral Dynamics (and obviously the newer ones) began to make me really see how profound the personal development content was of Actualized.org and I kept watching the earlier videos but never once clicked on a spiritual enlightenment video. I never clicked on the spiritual enlightenment videos because even though I learned techniques like meditation in order to become more present and be more mindful, the PUA culture never once fully explained the full teaching of the teachers they follow like Eckhart Tolle. I had even heard off hand comments from the PUA community calling people who pursued spiritual paths as beta or passive etc. So it’s not like I wasn’t interested in Spirituality it’s just that I was stuck in a frame of it not being important as I wanted to pursue success. I was already moving into stage green at this time as I stopped eating meat and started finding success not as fulfilling as I thought it would be. Then my stoner friend helped me smoke weed and get high for the first time in my life and it was truly the first time I had experienced a radically different state of consciousness. It opened my heart like crazy as I felt like I truly forgave the wrong doings of people in the past who I’d criticised, I could see the ugliness of the right wing commentators hating on the LGBT/sjws and most of all it was the first time I truly empathised with the starving people of the world. I began smoking weed for over a year just because I enjoyed it so much and it honestly helped expand my consciousness, which even though I don’t smoke it anymore has stayed permanently. My friend that introduced me to weed was a bit eccentric in the fact that he’d tell me things like he has had experiences of realising his parents are imaginary and that he himself doesn’t exist, he told me that it just seemed so true to him that no matter what he did in life he will always know that truth. I obviously thought what he was describing to me was intense as well as interesting which lead me to being interested in checking Leo’s video - Spiritual Enlightenment, the most shocking TRUTH you’ll ever hear. The first time I watched that video it didn’t really hit me, but I watched it several times, then I watched all of the sequels to the original video. Then I followed along to Leo’s Neti Neti method, and this is where I started understanding that everything I believed had to be deconstructed. A big insight to me is that all I ever had experienced was sight, sound, taste, smell, inner feelings, outer feelings and that this is what constructed reality. Let's just say after I got a taste of the true radical nature of spirituality I realised this is the most profound thing I have ever discovered and it is the missing piece of life that everybody is looking for. Over the last year I've watched almost all of Leo's videos from the past two years, I've kept meditation a priority in my life, I've contemplated like crazy and I've done self inquiry. I've had glimpses of enlightenment experiences during my self inquiry but I just need to keep doing it. On a whole I'd say my consciousness has deepened slowly from contemplation + self inquiry rather than achieving a full blown enlightenment experience. My desire for truth has grown to the point where I can no longer say success in my career is my highest goal which would terrify the shit out of me a couple of years ago as my whole egoic structure was based on my career success. I'm currently in the process of doing the Life Purpose course and i'm lucky enough to say I only need to work about 20 hours a week to support myself and I'm making steps to fill my time with awakening techniques as much as a I can. I moved to Japan 8 months ago and drugs are a no-go here so i'm planning that within the next year or 18 months I can travel to another country for some kind of psychedelic retreat to try them for the first time. I know that was a bit long but I’d love to hear your story as well.
  14. LOL, fits nicely with Leo's latest videos on Relativism
