  1. @Meditationdude I’m in Jarrell TX, moving to Round Rock soon. Namaste

  3. Starting a plumbing job tomorrow in a new state. I’m definitely going to have to become a chameleon and hide my green/yellow ideologies when I’m at work. I’m going to be working with religious people and Trump supporters so I’m interested to see how I fit in. The plan is to stay neutral or focus on the things I do like about those topics and avoid having to stick out or lie. Curious if anyone else has dealt with a similar situation and what you learned from it.
  4. @KennedyCarter I think 170 would be a good weight for you. How you feel in your body is most important though. Just make sure to balance your diet and give your body the nutrients it needs.
  5. You could work on your breathing habits and your posture to help ground you and get out of your head.
  6. Pretty much spot on, especially for the spirituality section and for Turquoise folks.
  7. I've analyzed hundreds of my dreams. It's a window showing hidden parts of yourself, deeply rooted desires & fears for example, which you have not integrated or become conscious of. You can use dreams to do shadow work & uncover limiting beliefs/worldviews. Read up on lucid dreaming if you want to get the most from it.
  8. I was a naive fool just out of high school when this happened so don't judge lol. Scammed I was called by the "IRS" and was told that I was overdue on my taxes and would be arrested by police if I didn't pay immediately. They had me go to the bank and take out cash. Then they had me go to their bank and transfer the cash into their account. I wasn't "allowed" to hang up, so I left my phone connected in my pocket when entering the bank. They were very forceful and I didn't know how to deal with "authority figures." I thought it was the government so I didn't ask questions. Lesson 1 - The U.S. Government may be a bit corrupt, but they won't bully you like a loan shark or make you send cash to a private account. (unless you have some serious dirt on someone in a position of power) Lesson 2 - Question everyone/thing: Authority figures, government, myself, books, news, teachers, family, friends, peers, guru's, salesman Lesson 3 - Untether my inner demon a bit to show I'm not to be fucked with.
  9. @Matt23 Definitely worth it. You won’t have a deep understanding or know how to navigate the spiral smoothly without studying the book.
  10. @fopylo Find what works for you. I don’t think the problem is how you read though. Changing the strategy you use for learning won’t solve your neurosis. Do you meditate? Check out Leo’s latest video and try the meditation before reading to see how you do then. You probably just need to do more mindfulness practice.
  11. I am an intensely ambitious person but at the same I'm aware that material success doesn't lead to fulfillment or happiness. (Green vs Orange ^MEME battle) I've become disillusioned with relationships, sex, success, and money, but feel cultural pressure to attain them. I need a stronger vision and I must learn to love myself (and "others") more in order to share my gifts with the world. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ___________ _ _ _ ____________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ My current living situation and location are severely limiting my growth. I must distance myself from family/friend obligations and drama. The people in my life are deeply unconscious and are dragging me down. Once I break free from their influence, I know that I will flourish. I need to move to a big city in order to grow, but I also want to connect more with nature. I will find a place where I can do both. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ___________ _ _ _ ____________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ I should know better than to behave the way I do. I do things and speak in ways that I know aren't authentically me in order to push people away. My shadow's armor is mix of selfishness, grandiosity, coldness, rudeness, agreeableness, and overt kindness. Each will surface when it's needed. My shadow doesn't want me to get along with others. It wants to push people away and make them dislike/distrust me. My survival strategy and defense mechanisms are hard at work. I must become more aware of my defenses to fully integrate my shadow. I must also learn to trust others.
  12. Don’t be afraid to ask the people you’re leading what they think is best. Have them come up with idea’s, come up with your own, and choose the best between all of them. Or merge the ideas together to fill holes into the best one. Just make it clear that it’s your decision. A leader’s job is NOT to know everything, it is to do what is best for the group. Followers respect a leader who respect’s their opinions. People have egos, make them feel heard and valued. The book Leadership Strategy and Tactics by Jocko Willink will give you some good practical tips on how to be a leader that you can implement quickly if you want to improve your leadership skills.

  14. Take notes only after you’ve read the entire book. Fold important pages or use page markers and highlight/underline what you want to remember. Then when you’re finished, take index cards and write out the insight or information by going through the marked pages. Write the page number and the title of the book on the back so you can go back to the section if needed.
