  1. If you have a dog, or a cat, or any animal, sit down with it, get a pen and paper, write a word on it, and seriously spend the next 30 minutes trying to get your dog to understand how amazing it would be if it could just look at the paper and actually read the word. ACTUALLY try to teach your dog or your cat to read the word on the paper. Not like a joke, but actually try it. Feel the frustration that your dog just won't fucking get it. But keep trying anyways in the hopes that it will get it! After 30 minutes of trying, you'll realize how amazing it is that you yourself can do it But then you'll have compassion towards your dog that it can't do it, you'll understand that that's how your dog is. But you'll also feel how amazing it is that you yourself can do it. You might ask me why the heck you would do that. I don't know how to answer that question. But I guess that it will just show you how fucking amazing it is that you can do something so sophisticated as looking at a paper with ink on it and somehow read what the shapes on the paper mean. That's not an ability to take for granted
  2. I've never tried psychedelics, but I'm pretty sure it isn't much like fainting. Fainting is just horrible lol. I hated it so damn much when it happened to me. This description is bringing back memories, ew. Horrible.
  3. Drop black and white thinking, man. It’s not like you either take all advice from everyone or don’t take advice from anyone at all. Depends on what kind of advice it is. Depends who it is you’re taking advice from. Depends on how the advice fits in to your particular situation, etc etc. I fall prey to black and white thinking a lot too, but I’m chaging that. That’s my advice. Take it if you feel like it helps.
  4. Yeah man, I've fainted twice in my life from getting my blood drawn. At first it felt like I was pulled into a vortex, and then I was rapidly traveling through my veins as consciousness at such a speed that I can't even explain. It was like I was inside a car (as consciousness, me and the car being consciousness in this analogy) traveling through a tunnel at breakneck speed and a tremendous force. The tunnel was my veins. Crazy shit lol. It was fucking terrifying. And then I came to, completely disoriented, and mumbled "ugg noo, i cant believe that happendddd, i hated that..."
  5. Thanks for the suggestions. I've also recently found these two and am currently reading them: The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy. This one is helping me open my mind to new possibilities by understanding how my subconscious mind is creating my reality and how I can have more control over my "external" reality by first focusing on changing my "internal" reality. A Mind For Numbers by Barbara Oakley. This one is helping me learn more about how we can properly learn math and science, because I'm taking a lot of math at university. It's helping me understand exactly how we learn math and how amazing it is that we can even think about math! It also made me realize how math isn't actually real, there is zero substance to it, but at the same time it allows us to make so many cool things with it, considering that we can think about it properly. It's also making me understand why math is difficult, which is pricesely because it's almost like magic your mind is doing. But of course you can train your mind to do it with practice and the proper techniques presented in the book.
  6. I'm so grateful for everything I've been crying uncontollably for an hour. Why am I so lucky :'(
  7. Life is so awesome but I’m always standing in my own way, blinding myself to everything. Idk why I keep doing this That’s all I freaking do. Constantly. Constantly standing in my own way and in the way of others, and also others in my way.. and on it goes this is tiring ;( So so tiring. I just wanna be free and look at things as they are
  8. he's probably just doing this to get the people that follow him to persue enlightenment too. lol, i mean, u gotta start somewhere u gotta speak your audience's language to reach them
  9. The economy and the wellbeing of the population aren’t separate things.
  10. aahahhahahaha "people who dress their dogs are ESPECIALLY full of shit" had me dying.
  11. @Leo Gura Do you have any tips on how I can develop the ability to express myself better in writing and speech? I think I would only trust advice coming from you, because I know that you speak very well, so I know who the advice is coming from. Do you think you have the innate talent or did you develop it over the years?
  12. What hurts the most about seeing other human beings doing evil things in the world isn't the evil acts themselves. What hurts the most is knowing, deep in our hearts, that we belong to the same species as them and that it wouldn't take much to make us act out in the same manner as them. And, in the surface level, that is just unnacceptable. Self proclaimed "spiritual people" -- whatever that means -- don't understand the great responsability of waking up to the fact that we are all one, and the unmeasurable amount of Love required to fully shoulder the responsability attendant upon the realization of that Truth. The spiritual path is no walk in the park. It's not for everyone. But you can begin with loving yourself as much as you can! "We are all one". If you don't just say it, but if you've actually had the experience, I'd assume that that realization comes with great need for Love. I'd assume that in the beginning it must be very hard to accept. Love must come with that realization. That ralization cannot come without Love. Imagine if you realized we're all one and become aware that every horrendeous thing that happens and has happened in the world, that that was all you, you and only you! (Please don't come at me saying evil doesn't exist and that it's just an illusion, your words won't help me). Imagine if that realization hit you right in the face without Love? How could you bare it without Love? Love is necessary! Unconditional Love must be True. Reality as it is just absolutely could not exist without it. If it did, it would destroy itself out of hatred of itself.
  13. @Rikimaus And maybe he doesn't realize how dangerous such a statement can be to an ego that has no idea what he's talking about and misinterprets it. That's what worries me a bit about @Leo Gura's outrageous claims hahaha. Someone sitting at home alone in front of their computer, full of psychological problems and wordly problems, listening to what he says can interpret it the wrong way, because after all, spiritual work should be done with actual experience! And the ego always loves jumping to conclusions without checking the facts for itself. (I'm aware that Leo always stresses the importance of finding it out for ourselves, but yeah, the ego is strong and it jumps to stupid conclusions too fast and too carelessly.)
  14. @James123 Please stop confusing the asker of the question, and stop confusing yourself. That statement helps no one.
  15. @James123 You don't have to prove it to anyone. Look at your thoughts. There they are, aren't they? So they exist. Stop driving yourself crazy with your looping questions that take you nowhere. Thoughts clearly aren't permanent and they clearly have an illusory nature to them. But they are there, aren't they? Whatever you look at, there it is, so Love it. And what do you mean by "it's an internal dialogue that we can't see"? Of course we can. Look at them. Doesn't mean they are True, because they change all the time. But, hey, there they are.
  16. I don't freaking know what thoughts are made of and it doesn't matter. In my direct experience I can only tell you that they are there. Coming from nowhere and disappearing into nowhere. Sorry, but there's not much more I can say.
  17. Well, I guess the whole point of this work is getting closer to reality. If it makes me lose touch with it, I always assume there's something I'm doing wrong.
  18. Of course you're freaking here. Stop driving yourself crazy. You've always been and always will be.
  19. @Leo Gura oof :') I wonder how many people actually realize it. Not just saying it, but actually living it. I undestand how that might be the case intellectually, but I've never truly experienced it. And to be honest, I don't even know if I'd be willing to. @SoonHei Yeah, exactly. What I'm saying is that even God wouldn't be able to accept it if it wasn't for infinite and unconditional Love. But he accepts it, because he allowed it to happen. So he loves it. Unconditionally. Somehow he's able to do it. In the state of consciousness through which I'm writing this, I can't do it. And yeah, I'm using dual language here, don't call me out for it haha. And also Hitler was deeply unconscious. He wouldn't do what he did if he realized he was God. He was God but didn't know it. What he did was bad because he didn't do it with consciousness. That's how I look at good and bad. Good: done with consciousness. Bad: done without it. But both are okay, apparently.
  20. @TrynaBeTurquoise Some people need motivation to get out of bed. And they have their reasons. The spiritual path is full of phases like that, when you feel extremely unmotivated and you question every single thing that happens in the world and within yourself. That's the dark night of the soul, to use spiritual language. So yeah, some people really do need motivation to clean their rooms at some point in their lives when they're hit with horrible truths about their nature. Hell, I think the more conscious someone is the more motivation they need to continue carrying on this life. The spiritual path is no walk in the park.
  21. @Parththakkar12 Jordan Peterson is against rationalism. He believes human beings are deeply irrational beings, and that's true. And I think you agree with that, too, right? Rationality has its limits and Jordan is aware of that. Read the beginning of chapter 6 (Rule 6) of his 12 Rules for Life book. That's his critique of rationalism. The ego loves rationality, and the ego thinks its conclusions are always right, and it often leads to horrible acts. Jordan Peterson does a good job in opening people's eyes to the stupidity of the ego, he just doesn't use spiritual words, he uses psychology. He's a damn great psychologist. Although sometimes he does refer to spiritual language to get his message across.
  22. I don’t get it either, and I refuse to blindly believe in it. Something inside me tells me its true, but I can’t really fully grasp it. When we feel the pain of others, for example, that tells me there’s a connection. I mean, how is it possible for me to feel the pain of others? The other day I was driving my car and I saw a guy walking, and then a bus drove by him on a puddle of water and almost splashed water all over the poor guy, and I startled and stepped on the brakes. Lol it was funny because for a moment it was like I was that guy, and I was about to get splashed with water!! I just thought it funny how I felt for him... I don’t know, that might be a little hint that we might in fact be one. But, yeah, like I said, I can’t really understand it, like you.
  23. You can’t read other people’s minds because you’re not other people
