  1. @undeather Wow thank you very much for the in depth answer! Sorry for the late in my answer. About the withdrawal, unfortunately this is only true if you have been on the med for couple of weeks/1-2 months. But after years on medications one must taper slowely in a time frame of many months or years. Sadly most doctors dont have a clue about withdrawal.
  2. and can make withdrawal of pharmacological drugs easier for me and for others. I am tapering down an antidepressant drug called cymbalta to get off the drug in the future. In order to make my body adjust better to the reductions of the dose, I try to keep it as stable as possible during the month I hold the dose after every reduction. One of the things that I do is to make the maximum distance between the drug and food, because I have read that food can decrease absorption by couple of %, and I know that even 2% of day to day change in absorption is still really significant in withdrawal. but I still have some concerns about the stability issue ,so my questions are: 1. What do you think about that? 2. How much time it takes until the drug bypasses the stomach and reaches the small intestine? cymbalta has gastro resistant capsules with hundrents of enteric-coated micro beads (my current dose) to delay absorption that has to be in the small intestine. 3. Is there a concern that if I take it when the metabolism is very slow - before sleep/too early in the morning or when I keep lying in bed after I take it - that the capsule will partially dissolve in the stomach? 4. Can we say that maybe it is important to eat something even a little bit to make the stomach move and ensure the drug will pass the stomach in one piece? Or that all these parameters are negligible? 5. Does my drinking habit during the day affects the absorption phase and I should keep it the same as possible every day? or this is negligible? 6. anything else from your knowledge/experience that can help the dose be more stable?
  3. The ego doesn't just point to the everyday material desires, but also to our most deep and profound of our authentic-self desires, which many of them are subconscious. Not just about survival, physical and psychological, but much more than that. I think the whole point of the spiritual journey is to be more and more connected to our authentic self and thats have to be done mainly through processing our desires, emotions and thoughs. The mind is already intelligent enough. Why do we need to do things against his natural tendency? It doesnt mean not do to meditation or yoga but they are not the main path in my opinion. The main path is to already go WITH the non-linear messages of the mind. Yes, it is not easy, and it will require you to face your fears and shadows and keep listening to your subconscious messages, but what is more direct than that? This is the most direct form can ever be. Everything else can also be very helpful and valid an provide great insights from time to time, but cannot replace the main and most direct path. The "Dark night" as I see it (you do not have to agree of course) is not just the ego fights back to "prevent us from being enlightened" but a wise sign from our subconscious mind we do something wrong and are too much against him. I had hundreds if not 1000-2000 hours or more of contemplating about my mental 'condition' (anxiety and 'ocd') and last winter I had a breakthrough that improved greatly my situation and thats occured only after I started to drop away the condition term and treat it as a process of symptoms appearing for solid reasons. Thats why I think today that the term "mental illness" will be grasped as a dark ages term in the future and its a misleading term. Yes yes yes of course... genetics are highly important in determine the general structure of the thoughs and emotions but a structure does not equal suffering or problem. Much more other factors (events, traumas, bad nutrition, heavy metals, drugs, nutrotional deficiencies, and more) are required to make the stracture become "on steroids", affect the volume of the signal of the symptoms and turn it into a problem. But the original source of the symptoms is highly intelligent and the path to enlightment must go through them. BTW are there Israelis here? ?? I will really love to know more Israelis in this community so if you are I would like to make contact with you. Of course everyone else too, but I mention Israelis because I really want to maintain a more day to day physicall (to actually meet and talk) connection of more people who are into spirituality and this is more realistic and accessible for me in my country.
  4. Also I think that you are not supposed to ever think about the yellow triangle, because it has to develop spontaneously when the time is right. If you try to reach it consciously this is always going to be too fast/too soon in my opinion.
  5. I just had a conversation with my mom when I said I don't need to clean the dust on a fruit on the tree we have in our garden (100% organic obviously), and she said "You have to wash it!". I then said that in nature we didnt wash the fruits. and then she said "In nature people lived until age 40". Why people don't trust nature? Ok thats true that the technology helped a lot to fight diseases and provide emergency treatments which are very important. But still, why people think that in nature we couldn't reach age 90 from time to time? This is an issue I want know better. Beyond all this it pisses me off that familiy members/friends are so discredit nature. Isn't it low consciousness to discredit nature intelligence? What do you think?
  6. Ok this makes sense to me i agree. But why you said in your first comment nature is the problem? I mean that It seemed to me that you connected between the need to wash the fruit and the brutality of nature.
  7. Because your purest, unconnectable (language transcended - cannot be put into words) inner-child's desires will keep chasing you until you will be conscious to their presence and listen to them. And you will also feel unexplainable pain as long as you cant see them clearly enough. Therefore shadow work and authentic self realization are one. What all this things are? EGO. You may say 'no this is not exactly the ego'. But they are connected to the ego wants, just that these are the most profound wants. Maybe ego is just a word, but this is not just a word game here but a real issue, because if you underestimate the ego you also suppress your much deeper self expression wants to be uncovered.
  8. When it really done like this it seems ok to me.
  9. I disagree. Ego is not just a survival mechanism that opposed to enlightment but also rooted in the so to speak higher self. Every anxiety/depression/other mental symptom will first of all wants you to survive for obvious reasons of responding as fast as possible, but it also has a more profound reason one level deeper rooted in your authentic self wants, but the trick is that it is less trivial to see the subconsciois reason.
  10. I mean that also the action of trying to weaken/dissolve the ego is also wrong.
  11. This is too extreme and paranoid. this is a fucking fruit from a tree.
  12. @gettoefl Why not the other possibility which is to be as connected as you can to your ego most profound messages and desires? Why not to go with him?
  13. @Kksd74628 If you want long term egoless/less egoig state even then I think that the right way is to go with him and his instructions and not against.
  14. @GreenWoods Nothing can replace the #1 tool to development which is processing your uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Not meditation and not psychedelics even tough they are still very helpful but can never replace the primary tool. I really think there is no "final stage" and every awakening is also just a stage. I agree that spiral dynamics is limited but it can evolve and will be.
  15. @Carl-Richard Luckily ssri's are not addictive in this definition but they dependence forming. You can have withdrawal for months and even years if you reduce them in the phase doctors advice you. Benzos are addictive I think.
  16. Green does not respect the inner logic and the intelligence of the thinking and actions of other people and their connection to one's authentic self and inner child. They only respect them if they come from green's values. "I think you should try to do this and that" No. He needs to do exactly what he does right now and make his conclusions for himself (the only exception is a dangerous situation).
  17. Always process the UNcomfortable thoughts and feeling you have. Nothing else can solve your problems from their root, no matter how many psychedelics you will do.
  18. Be fucking interested in the other person genuinely. If you are his/her type, then the attraction will happen naturally.
  19. And theoretically if I will take 30,000 IU every day it can happen even after few weeks?
  20. In ng/*mol* you are right. But in ng/mL this is too high. Also the most important thing is how much YOUR body wants! More is not necessarily better. You want to know how much your body really need naturally. I think it may be better to emphasize the sunlight method because in this way you can know most accurately what is your steady state. See what @undeather said in previous conversation that too much (20,000IU) might be dangerous. Thats made me think that maybe even 10,000 every day for a long time might also be risky.
  21. @Michael569 But I have read that 15-20 minutes of exposure to the sun in the mid day can provide 10,000-30,000 IU and after that the D production stops because of melanin and protective mechanisms when the skin start to be red. I have read more and I think the dry skin because of scrubs might disturb the production of this vitamin. Intuitively there is no reason in my opinion that 2 months of exposure in this way wont be enough to do a significant increase of 10 ng/ML or even more.
  22. @Michael569 And after stopping how much time it takes to the leves to go back? I want somthing more stable and deeper solution. I have read that supplements are not necessarily used optimally by our body as it will see them as too much middle derivative and then stops to converse them to final derivative and basically developes tolerance. Also I read yesterday from @undeatherthat too much in one take might be dangerous. Also the absorption through digestionis is much faster then through the skin and therefore less safe. The natural mechanism is infinite times more intelligent then supplements BUT this doesnt mean not to use them for couple of months when the level is too low. I am just not sure that 30 ng/mL it too low. Its low but not critically. I think about to try not to scrub face, hands and lower parts of the legs. I know that D is absobed in deep layers of the skin but I understand now the if you scrub you remove the fat from the top layers and our body will transfer fat from the deeper layes to compensate and then you can still loose vitamin D in this way. Natural way in our latitude of Israel must be enough just need to be done right. So I think about the natural way (maybe to take also low dose (1000-2000 of D3+K2) but not sure).
  23. @WokeBloke Don't get stressed by the solipsism issue. Everyone have their own stage of consciousness and their stage's excesses/traps etc. I dont know who is more or less right, and you too. Do your own journey by keep processing your uncomfortable feelings and thoughs.
