  1. Even with drugs it's difficult. It's just faster and more intense.
  2. This is actually a very important point to understand about enlightenment. When you get enlightened, your short-term memory will most likely die down a lot. At least that's how it is for me. This happens because as the ego integrates and leaves, the memory produced and kept by the ego does so as well. And because the ego fears everything, it hyper-memorises things that the muscle-memory in your body can manage without thoughts. So when the ego dies, you are mostly left with muscle-memory for short-term navigation of your life. Now, muscle-memory is completely intuitive, not so predictable and very strange at first. It's a lot more feeling- then head-based. To this day, I haven't quite found out how to navigate it correctly or how to improve it. In total, my life got more disorganized through that but more organic as well. It's a strange one. I think doe, that when you master it, you can have the best short-term memory a human can have because you get full access to the unconscious. But you have to unlock it first.
  3. In my experience suicidal thoughts arise when you are in a deadlock position in life. It seems that you cannot move forward, you can't get back and the present is fucked. Then the ego fascinates about not being here any more because it's a way out of the present moment that actually preservers it for the time being. If you really are in a deadlock, the ego fears to be detected and fears to be really killed by awareness. That's why it has to play the "joker" (going meta) and fascinating about death which normally either freaks the individual out or calms the individual down because it sees a way to stop the pain the ego manifests in the deadlock.
  4. If you were a science major you'd know that you learn that in university as well. That's not unknown to the scientific community. If you take a logic course, you'll be introduced to various logic paradigms one on which mathematics can be formulated and proven, others where it can't. I think your post is valuable for the normal human being that never thought about that, but I wanna to argue that the scientific community is not as dogmatic as it is presented here all the time. It's just like with every big community, if you have a lot of people its harder to change things and so people get stuck in old paradigms. (That's by the way why globalism will fail as well, as you can even see rn. ) That doesn't mean that the actual individuals don't know that. It's a little bit like judging a society based on its politicians. Not a good idea. Anyway, just keep that in mind guys when you mock science. I personally know some scientists that don't give a shit who you are or how you look and will be very open to new ideas and paradigms. Most of the ones I know are that way.
  5. This debate is so useless because it's a conflict between two paradigms of reality. The "there are no levels of consciousness" paradigm argues everything with "there is only one thing" and the "there are levels of consciousness" paradigm argues with "distinctive perceivable states". Funnily, both are wrong but very good guides in certain situations. So stop misusing words to claim absolute descriptions and start using concepts for what they were developed for: practice.
  6. @Spinoza I can relate a lot to your words. I was very driven / motivated / passionate before my awakening about my life in general. After it, it mostly died down. Rn, after a year, I'm beginning to put the pieces together again. The difficult thing here is that most of my ambition resulted out of the pain I experienced (=wanting to get away). So when the pain was gone, so was the ambition. This leaves a big silence in you. With time you can learn to consciously create momentum to be motivated and ambitious again, but it will never be the same compared to the old ambition. Very interesting topic.
  7. I've kept all my regular friends that I knew before the enlightenment stuff. Two tips to keep your friends: Choose wisely, which whom you spend your time. Most of my friends I would trust anything I own + anything I know / am / experienced so far. Introduce them bit by bit to the crazy shit if they are not into it. If you run around and tell ppl they don't exist, they'll leave. Of course. If they still leave, they should.
  8. Jump out of an airplane with a parashoot and see whether you still think the same way.
  9. I started watching it. It's awesome. Very much recommended. It's in-depth on the implications Osho had on his people and his surroundings.
  10. It means that you won't get all the techniques and methods that actual belong to the Kriya, because they either don't exist any more or are kept secret. So you can only get so far with the techniques. A complete yoga system leads you to the light body (apparently).
  11. I've used microdosing LSD in long learning periods before. It helped a lot. I wouldn't recommend using it all the time though because you should not set your new working / focus standard with drugs. But for certain situations it helps just to get shit done and stay motivated.
  12. I don't know how it is in Sweden, but in Germany we got some serious constraints on what you can and write openly. This really sucks (and motivates me more to go to North America).
  13. @Leo Gura, yeah but this is just one part of a society. The other consists of laws, models, actions etc. that are used to organize the group. And these systems are clearly man-made and the self-evolving organism lives in conjunction with this system. True, because it's natural that a society that is self-evolving will get bigger and bigger until it collapses. A good societal system could prevent that by designing ground rules so that it never gets so far. I wouldn't be so sure. I think we are peaking rn with our globalism so that it will collapse at some point because the system cannot function any further. The question is, how long will it need to go down. But surely, every system that gets too big will fall apart and build new little systems.
  14. In terms of managing a system you can make the point that it is way easier to manage a collection of small systems interacting in a predefined way instead of one big system. Look at your body, it's an ordered collection of many small systems that make up bigger and bigger systems, finally leading to you. So, If you have a set of nation states they can all individually have different kinds of laws for different kinds of cultures so that every culture is happy with its laws. And then these states can interact in pre-defined ways (contracts, human right laws, etc.) to make business with each other if they want to. This way they can even set up systems that ensure that war is held down. For example they can build unions and what not for that sake. The general problem I have with globalism is the following: I don't know one natural or man-made system that works that isn't made of a collection of little systems interacting with each other. So, please change my mind.
