  1. Imagine being able to rise above all the human dirt and be able to live a noble, meaningful life based on your own principles. Wouldn't that be beautiful?
  2. @Breakingthewall thank you. So it's kind of experiencing vs understanding?
  3. @Yimpa sorry for lashing out. But I just wanted to learn Leo's understanding of what enlightenment means in general.
  4. @Yimpa leave me alone
  5. @Yimpa I read it. I was asking about what enlightement is.
  6. But what's the point of making posts about how nobody on this forum is awake if you can never know. Is it like a prophylactic measure against your students possibly getting distracted by those types of claims coming from other people? In that case. Does it have less to do with the Truth and more with sticking to good practices and principles? Because I agree that it's a good practice to stay humble, openminded, and wary of other people who claim to be awake. But it doesn't mean that it's true that there are no awake people on this forum, right?
  7. @Leo Gura do you believe any of your students could ever awaken? If you do, how would you know that? Like if someone makes a post tomorrow saying that they have followed your teachings and finally became awake. How would you know if it's true or not? Are you just going to tell them that they are not awake no matter what or is there a scenario where you would say: "ok, this guy is actually awake"?
  8. This one had me dead when Ibfirst heard it, haha
  9. @Lila9 this band was hilarious in general, haha. Their main theme was dark fairy tails. Some songs are funny, some sad, some creepy, some kind of epic Yep, absolutely👍
  10. @Mahdi El-Mirak do you mean something like tarot cards reading? Also, by "video" you mean recording a video or having a live 1 on 1 call? What kind of personal information / inpur from the client do you need to do the reading?
  11. This is definitely true, I've noticed it as well.
  12. @Lila9 haha, thank you ) I mean... You are learning something new, expanding your worldview, plus they are genuinely interesting, so why not.
  13. @An young being well, that's already an impressive achievement. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Just an attempt at developing a sense of humour That's an interesting perspective. I didn't think about it like this before.
  15. @Lila9 you thought I watched a few serial killer documentaries and was about to start hacking babies left and right? 😂 I don't think it works like that. I probably don't have a clue just like you but I imagined that you transcend pain and suffering by feeling deeply into it (as opposed to numbing) and fully loving and accepting it.
  16. I was just always drawn to and excited by stories like this. So I am wondering if I should set it as a long term goal for myself. Ok, thanks you for advise
  17. Sorry, I mixed them up. I am not the best with names.
  18. No, I didn't mean it that context. I don't agree with the commenters above. I am trying to be vegan myself for ethical reasons (emphasis on trying) Just in general. Is this actually a real thing? Can you transcend your own pain and suffering this way. Is this a worthy pursuit or do you consider it a distraction from real Awakening?
  19. In your strong determination sitting video you had a story about Shinzen Young doing a root canal without painkillers and being totally at ease and smiling throughout the whole process. Or there are monks who set themselves on fire and sit still. What about that? What does it say about pain and suffering?
  20. Hi @Leo Gura, just wanted to say that I really loved your latest blog post.
  21. Yeah, his social skills were honestly impressive. But I guess it's not that hard when you have psychopathic levels of ego and confidence, and have a basic idea of how to play with people to get them to like you.
  22. @Danioover9000 nevermind, sorry for lashing out.
  23. @Lila9 I've just watched this one: What a well done documentary. I actually didn't think I would enjoy watching it that much. I will probably get into documentaries now, haha. I have been wanting to watch "The last dive of David Shaw" for a while now, but have been putting it away. And wow, this case is insane. It's crazy how he was able to kill 33 people, and could probably kill even more if he didn't get so careless with the last boy. That's just insane. Imagine having so many people gone missing that have this guy in their social circle and police just didn't give a fuck. I wonder if it's the same nowadays or something has changed for the better. Also this guy is a very interesting person to study if you are interested in psychology I think. Such a nut job. To be honest I wished that they didn't execute him but instead put him into a mental hospital and sudied him like the lawyer suggested. So, anyway, thanks for sharing )
