  1. For increasing self-awareness I would recommend using the daily notes for journaling etc. I have created a sort of an wisdom distillation process with it, by having certain sections of daily notes - like daily reflections show up automatically in weekly notes, then after the week I can look at- and reflect on those in the weekly "meta view" section. Those weekly insights will then collect to monthly notes, and monthly insights to yearly notes. So I can look at my life from a "meta-meta-meta" perspective and see big trends and insights emerge. You can also collect all kinds of data, or track habbits in a similar way, if you like that sort of stuf. There is endless possibilities in customising these systems, but be carefull not to put the tools before the goals.

  3. His point is simply that - let's say a stage blue nondual awakening is not as full as a turquoise one. You can't awaken to a "reality" you are not yet conscious of - it just flies over your head. How is this pointless?
  4. I'm not sure if Leo is talking about states- or stages of consciousness (or both) here, but even if it was stages of cognitive and moral development (wich SD is mapping) I believe alien mind is way beyond the scope of SD. The authors of SD are at like blue-orange range I think - so they don't have a clue about this stuff. Matter of fact, if we take his word for granted - pretty much nobody does.
  5. Should be a good one. Unfortunately, it won't be out until Apr 2024.. https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/729741/finding-radical-wholeness-by-ken-wilber/

  7. I have no problems with the format of the short videos, but it would be nice to have some kind of categories/playlists in the clips channel too.
  8. There's quite a few good book summaries: https://www.sloww.co/book-summaries/

  10. Brilliant video, once again! Appreciate the mature and nuanced style of delivery in this one. Thank you for the wisdom, Leo!
  11. Obsidian would be my weapon of choice. It has much more flexibility in terms of useability. And with the help of rich ecology of community plugins, it'll easily trump - I'd say all the other note taking apps, including Notion and OneNote. With those, you are pretty much stuck with the rigid folder -kind of organization style. Obsidian let's you build your knowledge base holistically from ground up, so when your notes start accumulating, they'll start to form a complex web of knowledge. You start to make new interconnections between topics much more easily, IMO. Especially with this kind of work, where every topic is deeply connected - like philosophy, spirituality, epistemology etc., it's hard to label something to a specific category. Instead what I like to do, is I just start writing on a empty note, and with internal links and tags / other metadata, I can then make those MOC pages for the main topics like philosophy, metaphysics etc. What's best, dataview plugin will add new notes to the specfic MOCs automatically, when metadata is added. If you'd still like to use some of the Notion's features -- like databases changes are, you'll find a community plugin that let's you do just that. (Database folder, Dataview, Kanban etc.) Just make sure, you don't make these apps just another way to procrastinate with your work. It's easy to get excited about these shiny new toys Just use whatever tools that gets the job done most effectively. Pretty much all of these apply to Obsidian, too.
  12. I guess here's a little snippet of that Shame rule: "It’s the walk of shame, folks. Life, that is. We cannot walk through life without feeling ashamed of ourselves, and sometimes even of others. This sixth rule of life states: Do that walk of shame. Properly. Fully. Like a boss. Like the queen of England. Or like Freddy Mercury himself." From: https://medium.com/@hanzifreinacht/the-inventory-of-shame-56259d8d95b1
