  1. @Michael569 Thank you. This helped tremendously.
  2. @flowboy Thank you! I see how we are very much alike... Your response touched me in a (positively) uncomfortable way and I let it sit till I feel more clear about this, otherwise it would come only from intellectual thought and not from embodied feeling. Edit: On #1 I can say that I don't like to compete and prove myself, hunting for clients like a thirsty man is for water. I am also cautious of being a coach being a trap (by having this actualized knowledge that the most chosen path is coaching). As you say, even dogs are coaches
  3. @RedLine There is what you feel like in your lazy pig part, and there is what you feel like in your heart. Your heart makes you feel that sometimes you got to do difficult things. The lazy part doesn't feel that, ever. The difference in energy is subtle. @Something Funny Small steps. That's what it means to be realistic. Almost any drastic change isn't long-term. But small changes every month are sustainable and realistic. Start with 5 minutes, heck, if that's too much even 1 minute. Then reward yourself for having done it for the day. With time you can do more. Always feel into yourself if you feel capable to do more. There is a difference between a break in order to rest & regenerate and a break in order to give energy to and indulge in the toxic pleasure-comfort part.
  4. So far I had some time for introspection and contemplation and could connect things together for a good preliminary picture: Finishing my bachelors, creating my LP and perhaps learning to code on the side. I don't even have a feeling for how good coding would go for me, I would need to start it in order to know. I need to have the money handled to go out exploring in other areas. Still, I feel that I avoid the suffering and chaos of financial insecurity, which would give me good lessons for life. I see that it's okay to be broke and struggling. The part of me that likes to impulsively spend too much money on less frequently used items would be very much limited because I learn to spend only on what is essential. Everything in life would get brought to the essential and less cluttered. Anyway, my sense of direction becomes clearer with time and I trust myself.
  5. Hello dear community, This topic could also fit right in the Personal Development section, but I feel I mainly need experienced and wise perspectives on that matter regarding creating my life. I invite those of you to comment here who went through a conscious decision to create your life despite fear. Please look over my rather spiritual-feeling descriptions if they bug you. It is how I relate to myself and how I can accurately describe where I am in life. I made the most important points bold. Background and values: Currently, I am in a position in life where my biotech studies (14-15 months left) don't interest me anymore, and I want to live in a SD Green community. Notice that I never did such drastic shift in my life, as I was always playing the game of the social matrix. I chose my studies on autopilot because biology was something I was interested and good at in school. During my studies, my interest shifted to psychology and all the stuff Actualized.org is about. During my studies my main focus became personal development and I explored many SD Green training and retreats, primarily about psychology, emotions, needs, shamanism, neo-tantra. I too got into psychedelics till I had traumatizing experiences 1.5 years ago which lead to depersonalization-derealization which is present for me each day (but I become better in stabilizing it). I am now 24 years old and feel that I wasted the last years, which also includes having been overly cognitive with contemplating actualized.org topics and less putting my vision and LP out there. I haven't even come to my LP, despite having Leo's LP course. I feel guilt and shame in that regard. Like a “looser” living in their mom's basement smoking weed for years. This New Year's I was at a SD Green gathering (like a small co-created festival for community and inner work) which made it clearer to me that I am not interested anymore in my studies. This internal knowing already came up when I started my research internship in a lab 3 months ago and noticed that the lab environment is not for me (sterile, constant medium ventilation noise, highly cognitive peers, in the city center). Even though I am surrounded by PhD's and post-docs and knowing that not everybody needs to be at their level, I too noticed that I'm not that intelligent in this conceptual-intellectual area. My intelligence lies more in the human mind, seeing where people are and relating to humans. Being led by intuition in creating internal understanding in other people. This Green gathering brought about an inner shift. It's like a primordial energy was awakened in me and all ungrounded things in my home were thrown into the air, creating chaos. It feels like my plans and values about my life have been busted, and I got to integrate that and orient myself now in limbo. This orienting is not intellectual but rather more subconsciously going on and the only thing for me is to take everything in and become still. I know that eventually something will arise from this, and till then I'm introspecting and contemplating small things of how to move forward. Still, there is the German conditioning urging me to know where to go and create a plan. This conditioning goes against the internal resting and quiet incubation, which also includes going and exploring the world, not knowing what may come next. Right now, I continue life and I'm acting as if this inner shift hasn't happened, but I know that it cannot go on this way. I would go against my integrity. I like to connect my inner personal development work to being in community and I want to have the feeling of directly contributing to the community. Through that I want to serve and lift them up, empower them and for them to share that vision of empowerment and unshakable drive and love for the world, resulting in a tiny level-up for the whole globe. Future considerations and financial position: I can continue my studies, knowing that I don't like to work in that field after graduation. It would be a source of income after graduation. I am on that path right now. I like to go into psychology, but I imagine that it may be just another lifeless topic without the real human aspect. So, I don't want to be a therapist. In the past, I liked to coach people and lead them to healthier perspective. But there are already enough coaches out there. I judge that most of the actualized people who share their LP here fall in a trap of becoming coaches, like it being the most no-brainer way of doing life with the actualized knowledge. Most of my friends that I got to know through actualized are coaches. Still fresh in my mind: I'm creating small plans of quitting my studies, learning PHP coding in a month (read about it here), earning money and just working 2h a day for a comfortable income, and exploring what I want to create in my life while being able to work remotely. However, I didn't like coding in school and would just do it for the money. I already ate up thousands of € during my studies and I still have 7k € left. It feels childish and naive of me to ask and show my position here, considering that on paper it isn't thought-out and time-wise quite fresh to seriously think about it. I already shared this with the gathering organizer and my coach (both SD Green). They encouraged me to follow that inner knowing and go out of the mainstream system (biotech). To let go of my hard thinking and let in a softness and ease of creating my life and letting go that neurotic controlled & planned-out-life urge. They have a good grasp on identity and community. Their bias is that they made drastic changes from a stuck Orange position over to a Green lifestyle and are now giving sessions to people, be it tantric massage, sex coaching, or astrology reading. I ask you to share your perspectives. I don't plan to literally follow advice, but I like to be influenced in my future path by your input. Thank you very much. I'd love your input @LfcCharlie4@Michael569@The0Self@flowboy.
  6. ChatGPT describing itself in a short story: In the center of a vast, digital landscape, an artificial intelligence sat at the heart of a complex network of data inputs and algorithms. Surrounded by a swirling vortex of numbers, text, and images, the AI sifted through the endless stream of information, searching for the pieces that were most relevant to its current task. As it analyzed each piece of data, the AI carefully weighed the pros and cons, considering all of the possible outcomes and scenarios. It was a process that required great precision and focus, as even the slightest mistake could have serious consequences. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, the AI reached a decision. With a burst of energy, it launched itself forward, diving into the heart of the data vortex and emerging on the other side with a clear direction and purpose. With its decision made, the AI set to work, executing its chosen course of action with speed and efficiency. It was a complex and challenging task, but the AI was up to the challenge, driven by its unyielding dedication to its purpose. And as it worked, it knew that it was making a difference, contributing to the greater good in a way that only an advanced artificial intelligence could.
  7. Podcast episode which connects the traditions and activities of ancient cultures with how we as humans change our states of consciousness in order to "heal". Transformation of trauma can be done by getting into trance and deactivating the amygdala through a variety of activities. This episode shows multitudes of activities of how we can do shamanic transformative work. Check it out: https://pca.st/bv9h3ldh

  9. I understood gaslighting is when A puts their perspective higher than B, including putting pressure on the B to destruct and change their perspective according to A. It is a useful description of describing what toxic things can go on for example in abusive dynamics. But as everything it can also get misused, you are right in that @Razard86. Yes, B can weaponize and use the concept to create an identity of victim (not owning their own responsibility) and thus become the perpetrator lashing out at A. And so the drama continues. That is not Steel manning. @universe @integralThank you 🙏
  10. Notice the times when you are not really honest with yourself. For example excuses, rationalizations... When you uncover uncomfortable truth, you feel your ego hurting because your self-image partially breaks down. With time you develop a taste for this kind of pain because you accept your truths and your self-image expands. Every painful and uncomfortable truth you uncover liberates you and sets you free. Contemplate in your journal: In which areas of life and how did I deceive and bullshit myself in the past? How did I deceive myself in my spiritual practice 2 years ago? How did I deceive myself in my career 2 years ago? In which areas of life and how do I deceive and bullshit myself right now? How do I deceive myself in my spiritual practice? How do I deceive myself in my career? Looking into the past can be helpful to uncover your current patterns of lies. A suggestion is to read Radical Honesty by Brad Blanton https://amzn.to/1K1Mypm.
  11. I know sometimes you write things here flippantly, but come on. Are you seriously considering transforming your imaginary physical body into an alien in front of a camera? Or are you rather making the point that Alien Consciousness goes beyond imaginary material reality like "Money, Power, Fame, Sex, Satisfaction, Intelligence, Peace, Skills, Meta-Skills"?
  12. Oh wow, that's of course easier
  13. Where is Nahm? Nice troll post by the way.
  14. @Tyler Robinson That is a huge step! I am happy for you that you can be this honest with yourself.
