  1. ITT: I'm more enlightened than you are
  2. Share your favorite quotes related to personal development. Here are my favorites: - My goal is to build a life I don't need a vacation from. - I do my best and let the chips fall where they may. - What other people think of me is none of my business. - Every time you judge someone, you reveal an unhealed part of yourself
  3. I asked myself the same question when I was doing meditation, yoga, self-inquiry and other spiritual practises. Why am I even doing this stuff? What am I trying to achieve/attain? This went on for a while but basically I couldn't find any reasonable answer so I took a step back and started focusing on my basic needs. I kept my meditation routine but I started building healthy daily habits, dealing with my career stuff, learning new things, dealing with my emotional issues and so on. I wanted to skip this step thinking my spiritual practises would solve my other issues but the thing is, it doesn't work that way. Also, it's perfectly okay to deal with "lower" needs before you jump into hardcore spirituality.
  4. - Learning new things (Youtube is perfect for that) - Anything creative (music, art, drawing/painting, you name it) - Physical exercise - Watching documentaries (Netflix has some great informative stuff)
  5. If you can do something about it, speak up and do what you have to do. Then let it go. I wouldn't try to spiritual bypass this issue or it'll bite your in the ass.
  6. Explained and Mind explained @ Netflix Awesome documentary about various things e.g. meditation, weed, billionaires, cults, even psychedelics.
  7. Start asking questions. Literally. Get a notepad and a pen and write the question on the top of the page: "Why do I feel like a defective human being?" Then, allow yourself to write anything without filtering. Whatever comes to your mind. Remind yourself that nobody will read that paper so feel free to express yourself. The deeper you dig the better. Mind you, this is not an easy process and probably it's gonna be painful. Give it some time and be patient. You'll have to return to this question a few times, I guess. And when you do find the answer, that'll be a huge success already. Ideally, you'll know what the problem is and you'll be able to start working on it.
  8. Check out this book: It may look like a generic self-help book but actually it has several great insights about people-pleasing behaviour to a great extent. I'm only halfway through but I strongly recommend it.
  9. I think there's some truth to what this guy is saying.
