  1. "And finally, imagine an infinite intelligence. Imagine an intelligence so high that it can manifest all of reality out of nothing simply using its will. This intelligence exists, and it is God. If you became infinitely intelligent you would gain complete omniscience over how your mind creates reality. This is true Awakening. You are not really awake until you reach this level." - Leo Gura (Blog Post)
  2. ooooooooooooo, lol got you there thats the simplest explanation instead of ending up with infinite feedback loops
  3. One authority to another though right? Overly well thought out post. Some of it seems a bit strange. I consider Leo a nihilist and someone who loves science. Cool to read someones perspectives. I personally find that science and spirituality are both important and have enough juice to excite me for the rest of my life. I personally don't know Leo but I feel like his videos opened my up to learning about all perspectives and not defending my own. I find it interesting when people accuse Leo of this, when he teaches others to be open. And, yeah, Why would he speak to Rob (Adeptus) when he frequently makes videos about him in a negative light. It's wisest to just do your thing in those situations. I personally like Robs content. I am personally not a buddhist, but I love buddhist teachings. Lots of juicy stuff in that. I personally am not into having "Faith" in a teaching. But learning from as many as possible over the course of my life. Buddhism has a lot of great stuff in it.
  4. I will attend one of these one day.

  12. Yes but, don’t make more stress than necessary. Learn to enjoy everyday as it is. Make small steps. Feel.
  13. I personally think we have no way around work. So, it’s good we find a way to lower the suffering through whatever process that is. I personally find I suffer more from growing, and the ego backlashes associated with seeing the truth. Suffering can be good if we must go through it. Your here to become passionate about life. If your 20, decide right now to orient yourself to finding it creating work you enjoy. It’s out there. Waiting for you. Find a way to cure the depression. Find your passion so you know that when you go to school you are building a powerful life for yourself. I dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life so I can understand you. But, life can be very beautiful.
