  1. What are the your TOP 3 or 5 books about psychedelics. I am looking for something more practical rather than scientific or historical. Not something that's very basic either (in terms of proper usage protocols). I am looking for a book that's remarkable. I have already read DMT: The sprit molecule and Allies for awakening.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. @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.
  5. @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.
  6. @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.
  7. @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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. @Thought Art no a Christian church. She transitioned from Islam to Christianity (that's what I understood)
  12. Leo meme
  13. @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.
  14. @Peter Miklis both are great books. How about "Everything is fucked" have you read that one? If so, would you recommend it?
  15. @Gianna mee too. Not only the forum but the discovery of in general. GOLDMINE
  16. Is happiness produced from productivity an illusion? I am usually extremely productive while I'm on modafinil. Being very productive is not fun, it's hard work and required concentration, but I still feel very happy doing things and accomplishing tasks, even if I don't like them. I am also very authentic and open on days when I take nootropics. Now is this happiness coming from doing productive things and accomplishing things? or Is it a boost that modafinil provides temporarily (basically chemicals in the "brain" lol, making me more conscious, hence increased presence resulting in more happiness?)
  17. Well it's homeostasis at work here. I also did psychedelics at my last retreat which also contributed to the backlash. Ego's job here is to make you fall off the path in various ugly ways and I am noticing that. In my experience psychedelics haven't really caused any severe backlashes. Usually after a trip I am fuelled up with motivation to do work.
  18. Has anyone ever tried a 5-meo cartridge? If so how do you measure the dosage? Is there a way to test the purity of it?
  19. Ohhhh yes. I was in a ego backlash for the past month. Doing things that I have quit long ago, being very judgemental and rude as well. I am almost recovered now. The faster you try to dissolve the ego, the stronger it will come back to bite your ass.
  20. I can totally relate. I used to think this way as well, not to say that it's wrong rather than an escapist mentality. You can go become a monk if you want, but you are going to have many constraints and need to follow certain rules of that monastery. You still have attachments don't you? See the ego thinks "oh if I become a monk I will be happy and have this great life" but it's going to be hard af. I think becoming a monk is the most hardcore thing one can do. You can test how hardcore you are by doing solo retreats, if you haven't already done so. Try 10 days, 30 days maybe even 50 days then you can commit to being a monk. Test the waters basically. I personally think a better way to live (even if you don't have your LP) is to make money and strategically invest in order to meet at least basic survival needs and once that's setup you can work on enlightenment from the comfort of your home. You can do yoga, go meet the shamans, do psychedelics rather than being stuck in the monastery cleaning floors and meditating 24/7. Although I do think becoming a monk for 1 or 2 years (if that's actually possible) and coming back could probably be very useful, since you will have a much clear picture of what you want from your life. There is clarity in simplicity.
  21. Is there a concrete way to consciously work on undoing your social conditioning. More in terms of moral standards and cultural values. @Leo Gura I would like to hear your answer as well.
  22. @GGG here are practical steps: 1. Create a vision (this is the only thing that will keep you going) 2. Calculate your TDEE using an online calculator 3. Remove 400-700 Cal's from your maintenance calories (depending on what rate you want to lost weight) 4. Get a calorie tracking app and set your daily eating calorie total. I use MyNetDiary. 5. Do intermittent fasting and count everything that you eat and put it in the app. Get a small food scale as well. Don't overstress on the macros. Just eat less carbs and instead up your protein. Eat as healthy as you can 6. Exercise 7. You can do it. The key is to STAY CONSISTENT.
