  1. I recently got two factory jobs and quit the first one and I am quitting the second one. I didn't care about these jobs and I didn't really like them. I just graduated from High School a few months ago and I am trying to find my way through life. Just a little while ago I asked myself "What am I doing?". These jobs bring me no joy or fulfillment and I just feel like I am endlessly slaving away for small amounts of money so one day I can buy a house or something. I was actually brought to tears because I know one day I will die and I can't even comprehend not existing but i'm trying to make the most of my life. I'd rather be poor and homeless and happy rather than have some money and be content. I really just want to be happy and I don't really care about anything else (even truth) besides helping others and promoting well being so they can be happy too. It seems like wherever you look people act like they have everything figured out but that's all bullshit. Maybe they are just too scared to admit it to themselves. I see people hate their job and go home and drink away the day just to rinse and repeat endlessly. I'm not going to do this because I'm going to try and find happiness and try and make the world a better place. I think tonight i'm just going to go lay in my backyard with headphones in and look at the stars while I listen to music.
  2. That would make sense because Leo did make a video telling us to take 100% responsibility for our lives before.
  3. I'm not even halfway through this video but this guy is not even open to other possibilities. He seems very caught up in naive reality by essentially thinking his idea of reality is correct and that's how it is without really questioning it.
  4. I think it's a good thing to be skeptical of ideas but when I watch Leo's videos it opens my mind to different possibilities. I may not agree with these ideas or possibilities but it makes me question and look deeper into things. Even when it comes to enlightenment I thought that was just some nonsense belief but Leo clarified by calling it complete skepticism of everything. Although, when Leo talks about becoming God or experiencing bliss it seems like BS and one of those too good to be true things. But maybe that's just to get the ego engaged with inquiries and meditation to then become the "true self" or "no self". Although, when Leo talks about psychic ability supernatural phenomena and I see how this has been debunked time and time again I think he's just wrong. I guess if it's a real thing i'll believe it when I see it or if it looks like it has been verified by science. I don't really think it would be that hard to verify some of these things either if they are true.
  5. @Nahm Maybe, but I don't really look at things in that perspective. Although, if it's out there and real I feel inclined to find out about it.
  6. @Leo Gura I see what your saying but what about that astral projection example I gave? Wouldn't that work to prove them wrong if astral projection is a real thing and worked that way? I've watched videos on astral projection and people talking about what they have done and it seems like they could remember some numbers or letters on a piece of paper or something like that. I don't want to just completely brush it off though because the first time I tried it I really felt like I was going to do it but I got scared of what my friend told me and I backed off. Ever since then I never got to that point because there might be some fear preventing me from going through with it. Also maybe that mushroom idea isn't too bad besides the 30 grams part lol .
  7. Are psychic and supernatural phenomena real? James Randi set up a challenge where if someone could demonstrate some supernatural phenomena that they would win $1,000,000. I haven't really delved into the rules or regulations of the testing conditions of this challenge but I would just like to hear what other people think about this. Although, it seems like there is quite a bit of bickering back and forth about whether or not this testing was "fair" or not. But if this testing was "fair" wouldn't someone have taken him up on the deal and won if psychic and supernatural phenomena were real? Maybe if some enlightened yogi or guru possessed some of these abilities but didn't care about the money wouldn't they have taken up the challenge to then use the money to do something productive or beneficial for the world? (Considering they are not off in a cave somewhere and don't know anything about this challenge!). Take astral projection as an example, if this was real couldn't you have someone write some numbers or letters on a paper and put it behind some door in in a room and then have the person claiming this ability astral project and just go over to the paper and then recite what was written on it? Although, maybe this test was unfair and rigged somehow but I would like to hear what some others on the forum think about this kind of thing.
  8. I think this is what the transition from orange to green looks like.
  9. I watched Leo's video on the Neti Neti method a few days ago. In the video Leo talks about you being a constant or something I interpreted as being a presence. I'm having trouble with this as isn't me thinking that I am a constant just another baseless assumption along the lines of me assuming I am the body or I am the mind? Because if I do this method I just hear this idea that i'm a constant and if I take that as truth it's just another assumption. Also if you are a constant and you become conscious of this through becoming enlightened would that mean that you are aware when you sleep in a way? (Just an interesting inquiry there.)
  10. Maybe ask yourself why you have these fears and keep questioning yourself to get to the root of the problem. Ask yourself why you even want a guy in the first place. Leo might have some videos on his channel that could help you out.
  11. I'm not too sure if I could help you grow faster but I would encourage you to watch Leo's Spiral Dynamics videos he has on his YouTube channel. They let people know where they are at and how you can grow based upon where you are right now.
  12. @Rilles So even when I sleep it is there? Even though I am unaware of this? Also I will be sure to check that out. Thank you.
  13. I watched Leo's video about the Neti Neti method to become enlightened. Leo says that you are a constant but how does this work? Isn't me thinking that I must be or am a constant just another assumption? How can I make progress by using the Neti Neti method when I think I am a constant but when I think about it it's just an assumption?
