  1. Each thought, each narrative, each story, each deduction, however logical or true it may seem, can be cut short and returned to the silence and spaciousness of direct experience. One breath at a time. One better thought at a time.
  2. In the early cultures, hunter gatherers for example, power was not centered for the most selfish. It was for the most experienced, oldest. There wasn't even an idea of a separate individual yet. Capitalism is not some universal "human nature" and a pinnacle of human civilization, a "natural system". The idea that human nature = selfish materialist is just propaganda the social matrix feeds people to keep the system running. Look at the people on this forum. Most active users here would choose emotional and spiritual well-being instead of material posessions and power in a heartbeat.
  3. "Human nature" is whatever the current system benefits from. What it needs people to believe. A few hundred years ago "human nature" meant a sinful creature in trial by judgemental divine power.
  4. Grace is the natural state of being. Just like love, it's always shining, always available. Thought-attachment brings the shade. Meditation is really good, the best for "recieving" this "energy". Also books and gurus just like Salvijus said. Abraham-Hicks truly changed my life. I read like 5 pages of one book and I sensed the presence of Abraham. Depression was healed in that instant. I've found crystals to be very helpful too. Crystal is symmetry and unconditionality. Wearing a crystal around your neck is like bringing grace everywhere you go.
  5. Does scamming oneself count? "This isn't really about This is about me. I had spirituality backwards. The Actualized - part is just projection. The name of this thread should be: the issue with spiritual seeking/work. The issue with seeking/work is that it is fundamentally already based on untruth. From the perspective of direct experience and the law of attraction, it's backwards. Seeking implies something missing, and work implies something to be done, somewhere to get. This is the wheel spinning in mud, getting nowhere. It's really just about being who you are. No teaching/learning, but expression. No understanding, but meditation."
  6. Last night I saw a really vivid and interesting dream. I was hanging out with a certain trans-man I've met a couple of times. We were talking about the LGBTQ+ and feminist movement. At some point, he mentioned a "third step". I asked him what he meant by that, and he explained that there are three main steps a person takes in their relationship regarding gender identity and sexual orientation. He said that also the collective is going through the same steps. When I woke up, I wrote down the steps. As you can see, it's similar to evolutionary models such as SD. Here they are: No steps: stark duality between men and women, strong heteronormativity, no other gender identities and sexual orientations are recognized: they literally don't exist, or are simply seen as an individuals choice to be evil/immoral. The first step: alternative gender identities and sexual orientations are recognized as legit things and not individual choices, though they are seen as a mistake in nature, a disorder. The second step: all gender identities and sexual orientations are seen as healthy, natural part of human existence. Gender is separate from biological sex, identity is separate from "essence". The third step: all identity, gender and biological sex is purely conceptual and basically illusory. Boundless, silent, free sexual / gender expression. What do you guys think? 🤔 Quite an amazing dream. I know it's pretty basic stuff if you're familiar with SD and such but it was cool to see the subconscious or whatever connect some dots.
  7. Yes. Depression, addiction, even psychosis. Make a dreamboard, meditate daily, wear a crystal around your neck. Take time at least once in a while to bring in mind what you really want in your life, and write it down. Healing comes from investing in life. Give life what you got. Don't run away. Talk about your dreams, make them true. Think and do what feels good. Ask for help when you need it. We are in this together. You can live the life you want to live. You can. You are loved. You are free. You are good. You are innocent. I love you. Thank you. Thank you so much.
  8. Been seeing the same thing. It's all about breathing and silence here & now. There is no ego, no survival, no higher consciousness, none of that in breathing and silence. The language of God is silence.
  9. Oh wow. I guess this is one of those things that have been missing. I want a family too. Thinking a future / adulthood with family and marriage feels very different than one without. It's A LOT better. Ermahgerd. So much depth and insight here. About self-referential thinking and living for others. Giving is recieving. You know what I mean.
  10. @Ivan Dimi There is also the idea that life is a school. That we're here to learn something. I see this one is quite popular in new age circles. And that life is a test. That one is widespread in many religions. We're being tested if we are good/righteous/godly/devout enough. Hardly no-one dares to think there is nothing to learn, nothing to prove, nothing to achieve, nothing to figure out. So there's always some need for suffering, for fear, guilt and shame. I've been suspecting that this is what suffering fundamentally is. This is why the ego suffers. Because it thinks there exists a need for it. Which then is projected as all kinds of narratives and philosophies. @Nahm Whatchu think of that ⬆️ ?
  11. There is no need for suffering. There is no a you to fight or surrender. Have you smoked cannabis or used psychedelics lately? I'm quite sure this experience was nothing special, just discordant thoughts projected as dream-like hallucination. Stuff like this might happen right before falling asleep. What comes to anxiety and difficulty relaxing and sleeping, focus on the large muscels in leg area and breathing from the stomach.
  12. Why would anyone ever look for not-fun? 🤭 jk. Try Hinge? It's for more serious folk. Is this a deep rooted belief or a just thought now?
  13. @mandyjw Excuse me if this is too personal, I'm just curious. What is it like being a mother? A few weeks ago something interesting happened. I was experiencing existential terror. Had a sort of panicy feelings. So I cried for the first time in a long time. What's interesting is that I didn't cry for god, I didn't cry for a guru. I cried for my mom. There I realized how important the mother - son relationship is. When men manipulate women, hold all kinds of stories about female psychology and sexuality, and even rape and murder, I'm quite sure has something to do with the mother-son relationship. It's about seeking the security and love the mother offers, but in a very dysfunctional, manipulative, controlling way. For some reason these men hold a belief that a mothers/womans love is conditional. “See all women as mothers, serve them as your mother. When you see the entire world as the mother, the ego falls away.” — Neem Karoli Baba Any thoughts?
