  2. Being a hot girl has its challenges.
  3. I can't believe nobody has mentioned one of the core ones. I feel contemptuous of you all right now. Contempt
  4. You don't seem to be aware that courage, honour, discipline, and adhering to one's principles and beliefs embody self-love. Tate does some of these things well, in some contexts but mostly not, and mostly the opposite. Trafficking vulnerable young women and manipulating lonely men for money, then blaming society for all his problems is quite cowardly, dishonourable, and not the kind of suffering that people should aspire to face to better themselves and society. Being deeply disassociated from emotions is not the same as being in control of them.

  10. I've been mulling over the confluence of martial arts, consciousness work, and meditation, along with insights into self and mind, and listening to musings from Russel Brand and Sam Harris on their journeys with Jiu-Jitsu in particular. Interestingly, martial arts might have emerged from meditation, where monks developing ailments from sitting for extended periods began incorporating movements into their meditations, as Ralston describes in the opening pages of "The Book of Not Knowing." Or perhaps meditative states were discovered and brought back to cushions in everyday life in the altered states of consciousness that fighting for one's life induces. I remember watching a video on using clubs as a form of moving meditation to increase strength by Mark Wildman. He speaks of sitting in meditation in times past as being a healthy thing for average people who were much more active on a daily basis than we are today. We don't need more sit down meditation, we're all in office chairs working hard on getting to the bottom of our tik tock reels. Needless to say, a whole dimension of self-discovery and self-actualization can occur in these treacherous waters. Alfred Lord Tennyson's Ulysses is gently wafting beneath the surface of my conscious thought as I write this. There is nothing like a good strangling to help you grasp concepts such as 'surviving a self' and Leo's explanations of self-deception with more depth and clarity than you ever could in any sober state of mind. There are lots of things that can armbar the scientific method. God can armbar atheism while tickling its armpit. A running theme I've picked up on is the issue of pacing for beginners. According to John Danaher, you should basically spend your first 6-8 months learning to be a good bottom bitch. I read Josh Wiazkins's book "The Art of Learning", and he talks about depth, as opposed to breadth of knowledge of techniques, as being most important. If you know how to do a few things exceptionally well, you will win more fights than someone who knows how to do a lot of things terribly. I just see red stars bro.
