  1. In Leo's video about authority he discusses how some students will basically praise their Guru's or teachers to no end and hang on every single word they say. Because of the students basically kissing the teachers feet and I guess sometimes literally kissing the teachers feet they will never ever reach enlightenment. If this is the case why would Osho start his own community where so many of his students praised him so much and basically kissed his feet?
  2. I have no clue what happens when you die, I think it would be just like falling asleep. But if you become god like Leo goes into in his Authority video it sounds horrifying. Being in this black hole all alone all by yourself, realizing that it's all an illusion, that Leo is also myself and you are all alone. The closest thing I can possibly relate that to is a lucid dream because you realize your'e in a dream and you can manipulate that dream. But in a lucid dream I never felt all alone or felt as if it was a tragedy in some black hole. I actually like lucid dreams but what Leo portrays it as sounds horrible in a sense.
  3. I also remember Sadhguru saying something along the lines of "You do not know what your great great grandfathers nose looked like, but the nose on you face remembers because of the genetic information passed down". I believe it was something along these lines that Sadhguru said and I guess that would be a form of memory that "is not merely a function of the brain". But I'm pretty sure that this would also fit into the materialist paradigm so i'm going to go back and watch those videos.
  4. @Nahm I think to make sense would be for something to fit into ones worldview or be digestible to understand. Because something even taught in science class for example may make perfect sense to one student but not another and that other student would need further clarification. Or a problem that requires conceptual knowledge to understand may make perfect sense to somebody who understands the concept(s) but someone who lacks that conceptual knowledge could not really grasp the problem because they lack the fundamentals. As far as the ground floor for something making sense, I would say that Leo's video on authority goes hand in hand with this issue. Because I could say well "This is scientifically unproven and Sadhguru is not showing me how he came to this conclusion, so i'm not going to buy it". Or I could say "He hasn't died yet, how can he possibly know? Even if he did die a lifetime ago it's not like he has the same brain to recall what happened". The "buck ends" where one just accepts an authority figure to follow. But then if one questions that figure and questions x, y, and z you have an infinite regress problem that Leo points out in his video.
  5. @Nahm I would say that nonsense is an outlandish claim without evidence or something that does not make sense.
  6. I really enjoy listening to Sadhguru but some of the things he says seem very outrageous to me. In the video he talks about how if you are old and feeble when you die you could find another womb in as little as 48 hours (around the 9 minute mark). How does he know? He hasn't physically died (unless this can be accounted for by nonduality somehow). Even if he was right about this and he did die old and feeble a lifetime ago how could you remember? It's not like you have the same brain to recall what happened. It's stuff like this that really throws me off because I really like what the guy says and how his demeanor is but this seems like complete BS.

  8. After being halfway through Leo's Conscious Politics part 4 episode, it seems like Bernie has some selfless policy proposals and is in the running to really help people. Seems like Bernie is a pretty solid candidate to vote for because of this.
  9. I recommend avoiding credit cards and even debit cards and just try to pay with cash money. I would give Dave Ramsey a listen as he has pretty solid financial advice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcVVGg4Xhg8
  10. 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.
  11. That would make sense because Leo did make a video telling us to take 100% responsibility for our lives before.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
