  1. From what I've seen so far, Taekwondo looks the most appealing to me at the moment. I like their style; fast paced and based on kicking. Capoeira also looks interesting. But I'm also interested in what will also advance me spiritually. That is a higher priority for me. I've looked at Tai Chi, Qigong, and Muay Thai, which seem to be related to spirituality. I don't know where to start or what I'll be most interested in. Like I said before, I think I'll enjoy fast paced martial arts like Taekwondo, but I don't know if it will bring me any clear cut benefits relative to spirituality. Peter Ralston is an example of a master martial artist who is also spiritually adept. I am interested in knowing if there are other martial arts that are helpful when it comes to spirituality. So I'm open to any suggestions.
  2. @actualizing25 Most people don't want to work (a.k.a be a wage slave). How would this even work? The majority of society don't like their jobs. They are pushed into them as survival demands it.
  3. @Moksha Was he homeless during those 3 years? What motivated his profound need to transition into doing? It just came spontaneously?
  4. @Leo Gura In some ways I feel like spiritual work can hinder pursuits that are conducive to survival. Business and survival requires at least some level of manipulation doesn’t it?
  5. @Leo Gura What makes you think giving away things corresponds with doing the best you can to help mankind?
  6. That’s one way to interpret it. Another way, is to see that they are intertwined.
  7. @Leo Gura Was this the vision you had when you were escaping wage slavery and working on Stage Orange (business, financial freedom, etc)? That when you get your financial needs in order, you’ll dedicate more of your time to spirituality?
  8. @Javfly33 What makes you assume this to be the case? Why does something have to be "real" (whatever that means to you) for it to have value? What makes you believe that you can't have fun with an illusion? I'd contemplate that.
  9. That's true. Survival also demands us to breathe in spite of knowing if the air we breathe is toxic for us How have you made peace with the realization of this @Leo Gura? If we were to really "transcend survival", wouldn't we be dead by now? Even with the idea of transcending and including? Survival fundamentally has fragmentation, opposite of Truth. They're antithetical to each other.
  10. What are you studying in university? Is it your Life Purpose, or part of it?
  11. @Inliytened1 If the Absolute and Love is our nature, Is selflessness also our nature?
  12. @gettoefl That is exactly what I am saying. What do you mean "belief becomes truth"? When a belief is directly experienced to be true, it is no longer a belief. If that is what you mean, then we are in agreement. Just wanted to say: notice how we have exactly the same number of posts lol @Gabith Is "it" you?
  13. @Nahm Thanks for using images Isn't everything? I don't really see what's going on. I don't understand the parent's role in relation to the kids. And what is the "self" that my thoughts are thinking about? It doesn't exist?
  14. @Leo Gura In actuality, all we have is our present direct experience. The future and past literally do not exist if we don't think about them. How do we plan for the future knowing that we don't actually know if there is a future to be experienced? The future is a belief. When we are strategizing about the future - or sacrificing enjoying the present moment by doing anything out of extrinsic motivation in hopes of "getting something" in the future - aren't we just putting all our faith in a concept (the future)? Almost everything that is conducive to our survival is based on belief. It is a belief that - if I were to jump off a bridge, I would die. It is also a belief that my parents had sex to create me. It is also a belief that if I were to murder 50 people, I would go to prison for life. All these beliefs are necessary for our survival. But they are just beliefs. Would you call these things "useful beliefs"? Can a belief be useful?
  15. @Leo Gura Is life like a video game? We know that video games are an illusion, yet we still enjoy them? We could say that humans have a need for growth and having a purpose in life because of our evolution. But that's just an idea/theory in our heads. Not actuality.
