  1. I have three months of high school left. Should I learn a lot to get the best grades possible or should I already start with finishing the LPC (I'm 1/4 done) and just get good, not amazing grades. Afterall I want to escape wage slavery and aren't grades irrelevant then?
  2. Leo said that it's the self-actualized version of oneself. But that would mean changing yourself. Isn't discovering who you really are more a looking and accepting rather than a changing of oneself?
  3. "What you gotta lose? You come from nothing and you're going back to nothing. What you lost? Nothing!"
  4. @Actualizer777 yes it is worth it 100%! A friend on my just got started on the exercises and he is so happy right now. You really get to know yourself and there aren't many feelings that top finding and living your life purpose. Good work ethic that you took notes! I would read them again to remind yourself and then start heading forward. Just one step at a time. You can do it! And it will be an incredibly exciting time that you'll have ahead of you if you find the purpose of your life. I believe in you.
  6. Spirituality needs a beer and a loud burp. Sensuality needs a rough blanket and a hard bed and a cold night with the stars.
  7. @bejapuskas Yes! This is my main motivation for getting grades atm.
  8. @jivvie @outlandish Thank you!
  9. Hey I'm over one week into NoFap and I experience that I'm suppressing a lot of sexual energy. I feel a tightness in my abdomen. I think I subconsciously see sexuality as something negative, like it is wrong to feel that way. How can I overcome this?
  10. @flowboy Hmm yeah i considered that. Will think about it
  11. @flowboy Thank you, I'll try this!
  12. I think I might have fallen into the trap of not acknowledging who I really was on a personal level and developing a spiritual persona. But to be sure I want to know how you would define this term.
  13. great advice, thanks @ajasatya
  14. I struggle with accepting myself, I have many 'should-statements' in my head. I'm asking myself: Is real acceptance of myself even possible by changing my thoughts or can't this problem be solved on this level? Or am I just deluding myself because changing my thinking would be more difficult? Is love the solution?
  15. @ajasatya So the solution you say is not changing your thinking? I experienced what you talking about, it feels so good. No I've never been a to a retreat, you recommend it?
  16. @Highest That ultimately true, but I think that ignoring your thoughts and seeing them as nothing but illusions can cause some problems. Afterall, you have to live in the world and to get to that place you talked about takes some time.
  17. @Markus How do you develop that?
  18. @Nahm Hmmmmm Awareness -> watches -> thoughts -> 2?
  19. @Commodent It's the latter one. No worries <3 Aye and thanks for your answer on spiritual bypassing!
  20. The last few years I was mainly interested in spirituality and treated my thoughts therefore only as illusions, you could say without much value. This led me to this feeling that I don't really know myself from a relative point of view. What I really think and what I really like. I feel like I lack this sense of self, integrity and groundedness. How can I get to know myself better as a person?
  21. @Commodent Well spirituality is an essential part of my well-being so ditching it completly would be swinging too much to the other extreme. But with the first part I agree. How do you recognize between spiritual bypassing and when are you just getting too lost in the mazes of your own mind and therefore causing unnecessary suffering?
  22. @zambize Thank you! That was very helpful!
  23. @Sahil Pandit Alright, thank you very much!
  24. Watch the videos "How To Deal With Strong Negative Emotions" and "Awareness Alone Is Curative". Trust me, this helps
