  1. You gotta try something new man, I’ve failed at many jobs and the ones I’ve succeeded at have been unfortunately ones which are not available in my city or are far away, I have server bi polar too which sometimes makes it hard to focus, but yeah man there is something for you, maybe don’t do a job that is so time dependent where you can focus on your work or craft, personally I’ve switched from tennis coach to learning about music and starting my own business. User @Consept has a nice series on starting an amazon fba business which I finished and am finally about to start, I find it hard to be time pressured and micromanaged too trust me some things are out of your hands, just keep working man
  2. I know it has nothing to do with Biden, but it seems as though that election cycle did shift the Overton window slightly left, more politicians feel like they can speak their mind and really feel the people behind them, having said that a lot of what Biden promised progressives hasn’t been done and obviously Biden didn’t promise this but I could see a few states doing this, it seems that’s how things get to federal level in the U.S. usually it starts with the more progressive states leading the charge.

  4. Don’t listen to the haters. enlightenment can look any way imaginable we just get sold the yogi and mystic ways because it’s romantic. You’re crying tears of joy they say there is no Kensho if you can’t cry tears of joy.
  5. I certainly like the idea of winning an election and actually having it mean something, I get that the filibuster is meant to stop the tyranny of the majority but these days it’s not even tyranny because it’s like 60-70% popular approval of bill likes voting rights universal background checks and other things. If Republicans got into power it would suck having them being able to pass their agenda but I’d take it because they won’t the election. I like elections having consequences either good or bad depending on your beliefs and I like change happening. Ultimately the filibuster may be outdated for the current political climate just as I think the electoral college is, conservatives have many sneaky ways of holding on to power and this is one of them
  6. I can’t help feeling like this is the truth but still feel like a person with imaginary concepts and constructions. It’s not useful for anyone and it’s truth but apparently life goes on, I like this message but I disagree when these speakers say that you can’t get anywhere obviously you cant its just what’s appearing. but also obviously in this appearance I’m no longer a baby and so growth and experience and change happen, now the meaning and personhood assigned to it may be illusions but this could appear to be enlightenment or pain or anything but for nobody. bottomline is seeking is appearing to happen and personhood is too, it’s not wrong or right that’s why the message “don’t seek” doesn’t resonate.
  7. I think a healthy solution to this problem would be more social gatherings that are well put together and marketed well. Yes we have bars yes we have parties but those are too private maybe like a government contracted venue or even community sponsored events where people can come out of their shell. Something where it’s easy for shy people to connect I agree that you can’t see women as a commodity like money and so regulating the marketplace is tough. Personally the more social you are the higher your chances of getting a girlfriend or something casual happen. their advice to cold approach may be true but it won’t work for everyone. Sometimes it helps to be “set up” even though in a lot of countries it is done against someone’s free will which isn’t right IMO. Maybe bars are too outdated maybe we need a variety of safe social functions after the virus is gone. Personally online dating has been a boon for me and I don’t think I’m even that attractive. But truly it’s definitely a numbers game in the socializing and dating field you are likely going to have to talk to a lot of women to get dates or sex. This is fine in my opinion yea it sucks that we have to do the approaching as guys but it can be fun sometimes, and also we mustn’t forget about the needs of women, mostly they don’t want just sex and so they will be naturally selective. They want to make sure that you are going to be there in the morning so to speak. we want an animalistic conquest, personally I agree with Leo, most men just need to get the sex fucked out of them and then around 30 they are ready to commit this is obviously a generalization but it seems true for me. so it is valid advice to get laid enough until you don’t need to anymore but most people would be happier with a girlfriend and maybe the long term commitment can come once they have released enough sexual energy. just my two cents
  8. Bipolar mania is inherently spiritual from my experience. And I’ve experienced both loving and creepy hallucinations. But it’s all hallucination ultimately.
  9. I freestyle rap as a hobby too and it can’t be overstated how genius this guy is. It probably took him years to get to level of cadence and rhyme skill every thing is relevant and there is very little filler. mad respect
  10. @Salvijus I gotta a feeling it’s been repeated before but couldn’t you say emptiness is more the pure form of truth and all experience and sensations form etc are truth but “less pure” because it’s not void, I think Leo is trying to say that they are both equal and maybe they are in non duality but to a spiritual seeker I can see why teacher have referred to experience as untrue because it’s not void but really it is if you go deep enough I really resonate with what Leo is saying, Sadhguru and other gurus dismiss psychs but I think you gotta trust what they are showing you because if you don’t that’s the definition of insane trying to deny your experience. it’s hard to say x or y that mean something but the patterns and similarities of experience are too strong between users. you can’t say trust your “sober” experience and deny yourself the truth of what you’re conscious of in an altered state. however you can certainly have dreams just like psych trips that leave you more confused or trips or dreams which teach you a lesson or send you a message, they are very similar states of consciousness to me and I just don’t think you can deny someone’s dreams or psych trips as irrelevant when the very reality we base our life’s around is illusory itself.
  11. free will vs determinism is an endless debate after listening to some of sadhgurus book on Karma is obvious to me that every "choice" we make is just part of a larger program, string, or samskara. I notice this with my life, the past three years have gone down very similar patterns. I do feel as though collective issues and strings samskaras do a good job of explaining individual problems, but also resonate with the message that you can always "take responsibility" and make your own choices to change the outcomes for yourself individually even if it is an illusion
  12. @Husseinisdoingfine give it a chance there are some higher quality rap artists out there, lol nas x is not a j cole or Tupac or Kendrick Lamar. Listen to the Damn album by Kendrick Lamar it won a Pulitzer Prize.
  13. @Leo Gura after watching your new vid, I’d like to apologize for even posting this and feel free to delete it. it really resonated with me and my ego was getting hyped up and fed up. I don’t know if debates would be good for you other to get normies like you say. Imagine a super bowl ad where you say you are god lol. now back to my yoga and meditation work. work on your book take a break from the videos when you can. Lots of love. Alex
  14. @Boethius to orange love is just a bunch of chemicals in the brain or an emotion and there are not any metaphysical points. Also there is no understanding of the problem of being part of the world you’re measuring so you can’t create a distance from god or infinity or what you’re measuring you’re intimately intertwined with it. thanks for your insight I now understand this problem a lot better
  15. @Boethius good observations and I guess this is more of a critique of turquoise in the video. things that come to my mind is yea all those examples are just examples of radical truths that he asks you to verify for yourself, there’s nothing vulnerable about Leo’s audience and if there is it’s not because he needs to fill the hole it’s mostly truth seekers and those interested about spirituality. it just seems to me that I’ve never thought that Leo was saying he is the answer only follow him like many masters say or even the rare cult leader says, on the contrary I’ve always got the impression that it was your own direct experience that Leo teaches is king and you should verify everything for yourself, I know there a good amount of youtubers that criticize him exist so we can’t answer every one I just found this one particular user a more of a materialist.
