  1. I have a 2 week vipassana retreat starting tomorrow and was wondering if it's a good idea to take modafinil with me, since it makes meditating way more effortless. 15 days is a big jump from my previous 9 day solo retreat, and considering that vipassana has a strict schedule I am not sure if I would be able to handle the entire thing while being sober. Or maybe this is the right thing to do?
  2. @Sempiternity You are wrong. I don't know your age, but you need to consider that constantly pumping metaphysical/spiritual content into the minds of the younger audience is detrimental to their growth and development. Especially young people are more prone to self deception and will use that information to disregard the financial and dating aspects of their life. I know this since I have recently become aware of it in myself. So if you don't like that content then simply watch the ones you are interested in. Re-watching an important metaphysical episode would also be beneficial. You can probably find Leo's motivation for creating such content in his "Burning Through Karma" episode if you haven't already checked it out.
  3. @aurum That's exactly the problem that I am facing and contemplating. Although I do think that as long as the product is actually helpful to a certain degree, marketing tactics can be used simply because it needs to compete with other offers/products in the marketplace.
  4. @kamwalkerI would say that it's when the amount of money generated is proportional to the time spent. If x number of hours = y number of $ which is outside of your control and is set by somebody else then you are a wage slave.
  5. I am currently tiring to learn copywriting, since it's a very valuable skill that can help me become financially independent. I have recently re-watched the "deep problem of marketing" video and find my self asking questions like: What businesses can I work with, to ensure the marketing of their products/services will actually help people? What are some niches that are relatively high consciousness? Say for example someone is a life coach and sells books or courses and needs help with marketing, how do I know if his stuff is not bs and will actually solve peoples problems. Of course I can speculate and judge that from taking a look at his course or by asking him questions, but I don't think that would be a optimal and truthful method to rely on. Would love to hear your ideas. There has to be some way to reconcile marketing and consciousness.
  6. @Marcel Besides the conceptual and intellectual work try to do masculine things. -lift weights -run a Marathon -get into a fight (in a safe environment ofc) - approach girls -do psychedelics (in moderation) -think as if you're the shit. (In moderation) And lastly try to always push your comfort zone and face the fears that you have. I have noticed myself that doing these activities, automatically make your more confident, masculine and proud.
  7. Yes, he has come a long way. It's only when we look back, that we see how much change we have undergone and can appreciate all the time and effort we had put in, for achieving something that we have committed to mastering in the long term.
  8. I was at age 17 when I got a scam call by an Indian team. They claimed to be from CRA and told me that I violated some policy/rule and was responsible for $1500 violation fee. Otherwise I would have gotten arrested and taken into custody. (That's what they claimed and even put me on the phone with a "police officer"). They told me to deposit $1500 cash into a bitcoin machine located in a nearby convenience store. Although in retrospect I now realize how ridiculous this was, I am gonna say it was very well planned and played out. I was being controlled by a puppet master. Reasons for falling prey to this scam: Ignorant of how CRA notifies people for penalties. Ignorant of what bitcoin is and how it works Mediocre English skills 0 understanding of psychology unconscious of the fear/anxiety state that I was in Man after I got told by my parents that I was scammed, I was in total shock and disbelief that such a massive recontextualization was possible. The quote "it's easier to fool people, than to convince them they have been fooled" applies to this situation perfectly. Anyways I have learned my lesson the hard way.
  9. @Thought Art no a Christian church. She transitioned from Islam to Christianity (that's what I understood)
  10. Ok so today a woman approached me at the exit of a grocery store and started telling me that she can see something different in me, implying that I have a big chance of discovering the truth. She was talking about her backstory of how she was a Muslim and was seeking for answers, due to suffering and that Jesus visited her and saved her. We talked for a bit and then she invited me to visit their church. I got cultish vibes due to her use of reverse psychology, over-enthusiasm, certainty, persuasion, etc. Now I am thinking weather it is a good idea to go to the church, just for the sake of observation and picking people's brains and get a general picture of what is going on in cults/religious circles and how does it actually work (get an insider feel). Just a thought. Let me know what you think. Maybe it's stupid, dangerous and a waste of time.
  11. Leo meme
  12. @Javfly33 lol you made my day. ? To answer your question though, there actually are certain supermarkets where they sell a higher quality freshly baked pizza depending on where you live. But still pizza is not a good option. It's very unhealthy. If you want to gain weight get liquid calories in. You can easily make a 1000 calorie shake in the morning. Put some protein powder/Mass gainer some peanut butter bananas oats maybe even some ice cream in there and voila. Consume healthy fats as well (oil, nuts, nut butter, avocado). They are very high in calories and can add up very quickly.
