  1. @Leo Gura Try a different video format. Youtube works best with .mp4 and .wmv files in my experience.
  2. It would easily be his video on Stage Turquoise. Being introduced to that model through the entire Spiral Dynamics video series revealed so much truth about the world to me in so many layers and facets, and if I'm able to achieve Stage Turquoise in my lifetime I would be very grateful. However, I am staying patient and am growing at my own pace. Spiral Dynamics can't account for all of life's complexities, but it sure is a great start.
  3. @Flatworld Crusades Thanks for the support. Deleted post, I'll respond in PM.
  4. Ask yourself why? "Why don't I want to do it?" "Why not do it?" When you come up with a reason ask, "Why do I want to do that instead?" Deconstruct that for a while.
  5. A balance of both is necessary. "Life skills" can give you insights on metaphysical topics, and vice versa.
  6. I understand what you're saying but at the same time I think you're underestimating how much unstructured time can be good for your brain. Giving yourself time to play, wander, daydream, listen to music, and chat with friends can put you in a great mental state to be creative or look at situations in a more open way. It's a great stress reliever.
  7. @Leo Gura Ok, I see what you mean. I was under the impression that the US was pretty solid orange through much of the economic boom of the 60s. But come to think of it, what the 90s are to us, the 40s were to the people of 60s. So perhaps it was less evolved than I'm perceiving it to be. I guess moreso than the people themselves I'm just making an observation that the culture and the zeitgeist of the late 60s and early 70s felt more green than the culture/zeitgeist of today or really anytime since then.
  8. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counterculture_of_the_1960s With an entirely new generation spreading green ideals, it was always a mystery to me why the movement didn't last, and why many of these people grew up to continue being stage orange. It's as if society was experiencing a turning point, and next step in evolution but it wasn't ready.
  9. @Amber Very insightful response, thank you! Besides meditation, what are some ways to get in touch with this pure consciousness? I think I've felt it a few times after some extremely vivid and beautiful lucid dreams.
  10. @tecladocasio All things considered, I think the benefits to taking an active approach to acquiring knowledge about the world outweigh the benefits to the alternative. The biggest con of seeking knowledge out of avoidance of sitting patiently in ignorance comes in the form of learning so much you are no longer able to meaningfully question the world around you in any sort of honest and pure way, but I think that can be avoided by keeping a close eye on yourself.
  11. Go to bed at the same time every night, pick a time and stick to it and you won't have sleep problems again (unless you're non-24)
  12. @tsuki Perhaps in a Peter Ralston sense, but that's still a slippery slope.
  13. @FoxFoxFox Is it possible to explain in words? Is Enlightenment the only way to realize the Self?
  14. @FoxFoxFox How do you know?
