  1. @Anna1 How do you know when to run?
  2. Thank you for reading this post. How do you know if you’re going in the right direction in pursuing self actualising/shadow work/enlightenment work? There is so many perspectives I would tend to overlook. Would having a mentor help guide one’s progress? Someone who sees the trap and gives you heads up so that you won’t fall for it?
  3. I appreciate Leo’s work. It is so DEEP. I would’ve never thought perspective could ever be so broad. It may seem stagnant because his contents are moving from the solid state to the gaseous state, which seems a little airy fairy now but it is the essence of life’s discovery to look inside. It has such intangible value. The fact that not all awakenings can be properly communicated through language and his content is still good, but why worrying about his content?
  4. I really can’t imagine how terrible this is. May all the souls rest in peace. Why can’t we live in harmony?
  5. @Martin123 This is a beautiful post I do resonate with letting go on the expectation of a relationship and allow someone to be themselves. How do you choose to accept the reality that after everything you been through, you’re back to square one again?
  6. The research team recruited 36 adults aged 60 and above, and gathered data about their health, lifestyle, and psychological well-being. The elderly participants also had to undergo neuropsychological tests and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The researchers carried out the study from 2015 to 2018. Upon analyzing the participants’ cognitive performance and imaging results, the research team found that individuals who consumed either green tea, oolong tea, or black tea at least four times a week for about 25 years had brain regions that were interconnected in a more efficient way. https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2019/09/tea-protection-against-brain-decline/
  7. #12 There’s the word ‘self-compassion’ keeps coming in my mind. I’m a little bit judgemental in things that I do. It felt like I’m attacking on my own self esteem, limiting myself in the victim mentality. I kept me feeling depressed, rather I’d use the metaphor of ‘locking myself in the cell like an inmate but the truth is, the cell door is open’. I just want to bring this to my awareness. You’ll always have ‘issues’ being human. No one else escapes from this, but that doesn’t mean I should be too harsh on judging myself and my failures. The truth is, I am lucky to be in my situation right now. I’m not in a crisis. I remember I once met a stranger in a social gathering. He was in my country doing his studies. He was a really quiet in my first impression. He looked cool since he’s bald and wearing a Jason-Mraz-kind of hat. Usually I wouldn’t go approach a stranger and go talk to him just like that but I try to smile because I know that I am in a gathering so I have force myself to get to know people. Well, I asked him where he was from. He said he’s from Yemen. I had no basic knowledge of where Yemen is. I just assumed that maybe it is one of the Arabian countries. He started to tell and show me where Yemen is. He asked me, “Ever heard of the Yemen war?” I shooked my head. With the convenience of Mr Google, we searched up the map of Yemen and also searched for ‘Yemen war’. He told me his country is suffering while most of the people don’t have any jobs, they didn’t want to be civilised either. They have conflict among themselves and also with other bigger countries that the situation is terrible there and he felt hopeless, he doesn’t want to go home. The moment I saw how Yemen war looked like, I really felt so sad that people have to fled from their homes in trying times and I’m happy that he felt welcomed here. It really changed my mind there. How would anyone survive there? I asked him a silly question, after getting his certificate of his studies here, could he possible go back and lead the nation with a new light? All the complaints I made towards myself just vanishes into thin air, until...it comes back again (Typical ego..never satisfies) If God could answer my prayers I would ask for some peace and end starvation in Yemen.
  8. #11 Happy 2020! Here’s what I’m feeling at the moment: no drive and motivation, loss the sense of direction, feel stagnant, things are not happening enough, no progression, fear of failure, fear of getting into another distraction, lack a true purpose, feeling overwhelmed with expectations, feeling lost. This feeling shall pass. One day of new year break to sit in solitude with a fresh bowl of salad. Currently reading: Women who run with the wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
  9. #10 bias Noun 1 A particular tendency, trend, inclination, feeling, or opinion, especially one that is preconceived or unreasoned. 2 Unreasonably hostile feelings or opinions about a social group; prejudice (Source: Dictionary.com) Synonyms Favortism, Inclination, Intolerance, Preference, Prejudice, Tendency, Unfairness, Disposition, Illiberality, Mind-set, Preconception, Predisposition, Prepossession, Proclivity, Proneness, Standpoint, Viewpoint, Narrow-mindedness, One sidedness Antonyms Fairness, Justice, Tolerance, Antipathy, Disinclination (Source: Thesaurus.com) Why would one be biased? One’s upbringing and experiences it goes through in one’s lifetime results in the level of awareness one has. Bias comes from the notion of judgements being made by one’s self since it only could speak from its own experience. Bias also results due to the level of concern/perspective/value one holds and believes.
  10. #9 Starting from zero. Not here to impress anyone, not here to date anybody, not here to compete/compare to anyone else, here to be nobody. I notice my own narrative/self talk here. This is where I’ll start over again. Here to remind, reflect, re-discover, and re-create. Here to contemplate, here to learn, here to be. I got nothing to lose but my own self A few things that would make myself more efficient: get off social media, drink more water, walk 10,000 steps a day, eat healthy, implement zero waste life, smile at strangers, walk in nature, meditate 10 mins a day, sleep well, read, journal. Let it flow.
  11. I do agree that it is expected of women to act as motherly as possible. It’s very hard wired into our psyche to stay that way in order to keep on surviving, it is so easy to overlook this fact as if it is a taken-for-granted idea - especially coming from a Stage Blue background, family has a sense of value here for my ego. However, I can see these days it is moving into Stage Orange where people starts to value success and acquiring wealth over building a family. Everything is still feels a little bit relative to me as in what context/aspect of perspective POV you’re coming from, it can be right of your standpoint. The term sacrifice isn’t so suitable to be used here I guess. Gonna read ‘Women who run with the wolves’ for better understanding of the heroine’s journey for sure
  12. Life is a play. You can be seriously be loving it but not to too involved with it when this all ends
  13. Nurture and sacrifice also mean helping an elderly to cross the street, giving food to stray cats and dogs or helping someone out of a car accident, realising those people are you. Somewhat like a Mother Teresa during war. Gautama Buddha gave up his palace life to pursue enlightenment. Jesus did healings for the people in need while preaching his teachings. I can’t imagine if there’s no nurture and sacrifice in the feminine energy. Caring for the sustainability of life on Earth needs this. Leo also sacrificed his energy into his teachings, nurtured and guided us here so we don’t mislead ourselves from the big picture. It is a good quality to have and not to dismiss.
  14. Beautiful episode. The vibe, action and wisdom you vibrate off to others and those in need is how you are constantly reproducing. The ability to influence makes it important to choose what it is that you wanna pass down to coming generations. What I lack the most is be Love, to look at someone or something else and recognised that is me.
  15. Cool video Leo released this week shedding some light on necessity of having babies. So hard wired to survival and duality it is crazy.
