  1. This guy is amusing reminded me of leo.
  2. Anybody else read this guy Meher baba? one of the most pure teachings I have found. Lots of stuff on God-realisation and Love. Have a look at his God speaks book. Here are some quotes from him: "Love has to spring spontaneously from within and it is no way amenable to any form of inner or outer force. Love and coercion can never go together; but though love cannot be forced on anyone, It can be awakened in him through love itself. Love is essentially self communicative; Those who do not have it catch it from those who have it. True love is unconquerable and irresistible, And it goes on gathering power and spreading itself, Until eventually it transforms everyone whom it touches." “What is the meaning of God-Realization? It means to become one with God. By thinking and imagining, one can never become one with God. Union is possible only after the death of thoughts and imagination — the mind must die." “How does a person know that he has realized God? It is automatic. You are a human being. Do you ever think to yourself, `Am I a human being?´ You do not ask yourself this because you are a human being. In the same way, once a man realizes God, he spontaneously knows that he is God. He has the full experience of it by personal experience.” “About the New Life Meher Baba wrote: This New Life is endless, and even after my physical death it will be kept alive by those who live the life of complete renunciation of falsehood, lies, hatred, anger, greed and lust; and who, to accomplish all this, do no lustful actions, do no harm to anyone, do no backbiting, do not seek material possessions or power, who accept no homage, neither covet honor nor shun disgrace, and fear no one and nothing; by those who rely wholly and solely on God, and who love God purely for the sake of loving; who believe in the lovers of God and in the reality of Manifestation, and yet do not expect any spiritual or material reward; who do not let go the hand of Truth, and who, without being upset by calamities, bravely and wholeheartedly face all hardships with one hundred percent cheerfulness, and give no importance to caste, creed and religious ceremonies. This New Life will live by itself eternally, even if there is no one to live it.”
  3. Hello all I am wondering how to reduce one's sleep quota... I have heard of possibilities of being able to reduce sleep quota through eating and perhaps yoga / consciousness work. Anybody got any useful methods.
  4. are you sure you know that Leo is being sincere? don't forget the trickery how do you know he isn't just fooling everyone into believing that he is sorry and wants to be better. best not to assume anything edit: haha im assuming that you guys are being sincere
  5. @Buck Edwards but does this not only make sense if one does not want to live more life? If I am enjoying life fully then why would I want to sleep more, unless for some reason I want to experience more of sleeping / dream states. Thank you for your perspective.
  6. After soe dwelling on this topic, from what I can tell the way I can reduce sleep quota is to correctly manage energies. I don't know if this is a matter of genetics, but I can imagine that if I was able to reduce the amount of thought I am using I would reduce my sleep quote dramatically, it could be a matter of just learning not to waste energy in places that are not necessary. This would require a deeper understanding of how the mind works and more mastery of mind / energy.
  7. Hello, my question is who are the highest beings that are now or have been. What comes to mind are Jesus, Meher Baba, Mahavatar Babaji. anybody else ppl would say? thank you
  8. Hello people, I am having trust issues with myself and i think consequently with others. Part of the source of this seems to be that sometimes I do and say things from a place of not knowing whether what I’m saying is true. It seems trust must be related to honesty and truthfulness. Does anybody have experience in developing this trust and how can I do it? thank you
  9. Hello I am looking for examples of people who embody love - people that come up for me are Jesus, Leo, neem Karoli baba, matt Kahn , ram dass. does anybody know any other people who have embodied love deeply ? thank you
  10. What do you find to be the most rewarding aspect of this work
