  1. So celebrating progress and achievements, as little as they are, would be the best way to embody that understanding?
  2. I realized recently that I never learned how to appreciate the process of personal development, and that's a problem. I am very demanding of myself, I want to get somewhere where I am not right now, and I get demotivated when progress doesn't go as fast as I want it too. Are there any ressources, books, videos that helped you learn how to appreciate the process of personal development? Or that helped you learn how to appreciate the process of anything in particular?
  3. @John Iverson If you are very good at self-restraint, than yes, that could work! For me the thing is : I liked weed, a lot. The euphoria I got from the high is simply incredible. Dopamine spikes in your brain like nothing you've ever done. I tried using it once in a while, but the temptation was sometimes too great and I just had to smoke. If it works for you thought, then go ahead
  4. In my personal experience, no. I've been diagnosed with ADD when I was 18. I've used cannabis almost daily between my 20th and 22nd year. Cannabis is a wonderful substance, I've grown a lot using it, but it sure hasn't helped my ADD. For me, the condition worsened when I smoked. I quit smoking altogether at the beginning of this summer. I still have cravings sometimes, especially when I'm stressed or bored, not cool.
  5. @Truth Addict @ajasatya This thread was created to talk about critiques of zen buddhism, not to talk about critiques of someone else's comment..
  6. Hi! Anyone know of good critiques about Zen Buddhism? I tried to look online for some of those, but didn't find a lot of serious ones. Thanks a lot!
  7. Let me rephrase. Let's say someone experiments heavily with powerful substances like 5-MeO : will this person ever be able to become a Buddha, a arhat, totally freed from fetters?
  8. Hey @Serotoninluv ! I've asked this question in a couple of places now but never got a clear answer. Let's say someone experiments heavily with powerful substances like 5-MeO : will permanent awakening still be possible for him? Am I even asking the right questions?
  9. Have one person ever been permanently awakened simply by psychedelic use?
  10. The majority of psychedelics are amongst the least neurotoxic recreational substances known to man. Albert Hoffman lived 102 years old.
  11. Wow this is next level hahaha I like it
