  1. Thank you for clearing up!
  2. @JosephKnecht Maybe Can you provide an answer?
  3. Hey guys, I'm currently working on my ability to be funny. In Leo's video, one exercise is the affirmation: "I see funniness everywhere". The affirmation sounds really smooth in english, but not in my native language and I enjoy it more, affirming it in english. Will the affirmation still work, even though I'm not affirming it in my native language? Will the outcome of the affirmation change, when I slightly alter the words or the way the sentence is built? I'd assume that the importance doesn't lie on the exact words of the affirmation, but rather the meaning of it, right?
  4. Yes! The latter is definitely very applicable for day to day life. I'll stay observant. I will definitely check these out! @Nahm Thank you very much for the detailed answer! That's a whole lot to contemplate there for the coming time... I really do appreciate it, thank you
  5. @Meta-Man That makes sense. Never had a non-dual breakthrough whatsoever, but I can still comprehend it from an energetic or a materialist standpoint. My movement necessarily implicates the movement of my surroundings. @Nahm I gotta be honest, I don't quite understand the "infinite can not know finite" part, since (by theory) the infinite is precisely the finite? At the same time, I really don't care about the theoretical stuff that much, experiencing it directly is way more intriguing for me. To experience what you are talking about, I'll probably need to be in a really high state of consciousness I guess. Nevertheless I think I understand the following: I strongly believe in the story of "sums being made up" and reactions being reacted. Slowly but surely I recognize how I'm reacting to things, that are not me. I guess one day I will realize that there never ever was somebody, who was reacting to the things around him? Why did you put the actually in italics? Do things change, when we exist in actuality? When we tune in into actuality, does the false identification fade away?
  6. Everytime I'm angry at someone or reflect back on my own path, I clearly see that we are all just the sum of our environment (I as Ego; not Consciousness). If someone pisses me off big time, I think very quickly of the chain reaction, that led to this situation of him pissing me off and me being pissed off. Why am I being pissed off? Clearly because of some past experience, which shapes my reaction. Why is he pissing me off? Because the way his environment shaped him, made him act like he does. Not more, not less. The same applies for love, passion, hate, frustration, depression and any other emotion or reaction. And maybe even Consciousness? What are your thoughts about this?
  7. What helps me is to have a constant practice + experimenting with other techniques. For example, my Kriya Yoga practice is daily and I often find myself unmotivated to do it. But I still do it. Sometimes in the end, it was worth it, sometimes I was still left unsatisfied. Yet I still wanted to experiment with "my" Consciousness. So what I did was just curiously trying stuff out. Be it with or without technique. Sometimes I just sat for half an hour and kinda treated it like a psychedelic trip (e.g. let come what comes; basically did nothing, but not as a technique). Other times I put on binaural beats. Sometimes I stumbled upon different styles of meditation, from zen to woo-woo New Age type of stuff. The point I want to make is, to just stay curious about your own Being and not be afraid to dabble with other stuff. What I found was, that the experimenting with other stuff always grew my appreciation for my main practice even more. Gotta admit that it can sometimes be reaaaally boring, but in the end, I'm infinitely grateful that I was sticking to my guns and just kept doing Kriya Yoga daily. It really brought me places, and I'm just in the beginning phase. So experimenting really helped me getting out of going through the same motions over and over again, since it gave me new perspectives, experiences and insights. The only "danger" I see with experimenting a lot with other practices is, that you may half ass everything without really getting deep. And experience chasing is also a great trap I fell into often times. Of course, reading and listening to spiritual material can reignite the fire in you. But also psychedelics, if you dare, will give you mindfucks that can only make one curious. After my ego got erased to a great degree by mushrooms, my respect for Kriya Yoga and especially Consciousness just blew the roof off. A final note, which is probably not for you, but for others: burning through your karma (e.g. chasing material pleasures until that desire is depleated) helps a great deal. This will make your curiousity for higher things come back naturally and more focused than ever. I still have a lot of karma to burn through, so I do both: going for awakening + chasing material pleasures until I'm fed up, to keep me on the path. But that's just me. Hope you could get something out of the long post.
  8. @An young being Information on the occult? Fuck yeah, this sounds interesting! I'm especially excited, what he writes about Mahadamadhi. Thank you for the quick recap! ??
  9. Yes! The Guru within is key. It's a step-by-step process. Someday, I will see for myself.
  10. I was super stoked to see this video. Sadhguru plans to return deeper into spirituality again. In the video he says, that he will continue his activistic work for about a year or so. After that, he will remove the language he uses to speak to the masses and speak more directly about spiritual topics. A foretaste seems to be given in his new book "Death; An Inside Story: A book for all those who shall die". I live in Europe and can't order it yet, so did anybody read it? I'm expecting some profound, high quality teachings. Not the weak sauce type of stuff, which is tailored for mainstream audience. Around that time I'll be finished with my university too, so I will safe some money and fly straight to his Ashram. I want to receive my first initiation to Yoga by Sadhguru himself and really understand, what Yoga is all about. Books, online courses and some videos can also teach you quite a lot, but it most probably is unparalleled by an initiation from a true Yoga Master (whom I can trust). Really looking forward to this..
  11. @nistake Kinda sounds ridiculous to relearn chewing, but it's true! I often find myself just swallowing the food half chewed, it can be really hard breaking habits Best part for me is the fruit turning into juice in my good hahaha. I never noticed that, before chewing more often!
  12. Good point! The rule of thumb is, that you want a homogeneous mass in your mouth. Some people count their chewing 20-100 time, but that's really tideous and unnecessary lol
