  1. Couldn't agree with you more. I'm glad I'm not the only one bringing up this subject over and over again. Some spiritual people seem to have completely lost their touch with reality and they start believing in all kinds of pseudo-scientific ideas without a drop of skepticism whatsoever. It is nothing more than a wishful thinking and a very comfortable state of delusion. Sam Harris talked very clearly about this in his video "Spirituality without religion" and made it very clear how there is a rational side of spirituality which does not have to involve all kinds of biased concepts. And that the core of Zen Buddhism is by itself harmless and very useful as long as self-improvement and the realization of truth is concerned. The problem begins when people start mystifying this whole 'enlightenment' thing. I personally disagree with Leo that there is some kind of "path" we need to follow. People treat the idea of 'enlightenment' as if it were something real or objective. Some kind of place one gets to. But the whole idea that there is some kind of a  mystical 'journey' is completely absurd. Zen Buddhism should be used as a tool for discovering certain truth in life, instead of making it a lifestyle. 

  2. 1. mental equilibrium (mental peace & calmness) 

    2. absolute freedom, e.g not being limited by other people, including the 'loved ones'. 

    3. limited connections, partial, almost idealistic, isolation from the masses.  e.g Choosing to communicate only with people that benefit you in one way or other. In other words, no gain, no interest. 

    4. productivity & daily effort towards greater success.

    5. Being skeptical/questioning everything. e.g questioning the cause, the essence and its value. 

    6. dominating every possible space&situation.

    7. maintaining  absolute financial independency, e.g never worrying about the bills, food and other needs. 

    8. Survivalism. In other words, trying to survive no matter what. My life above everyone and anything else. Even the lovers life. Self-sacrifice is absolutely unacceptable, without any exceptions whatsoever.

    9. Self-honesty. In other words, being honest with myself, but not necessarily honest with others. Depending on the case.

    10. Taking down my enemies (financial enemies, e.g other companies) silently, undermining their business, and promoting my own over theirs. 


  3. Guys, please understand. Leo created this forum so that you can talk to other self-actualizing people. He did not exactly create it as a chit chat space, and certainly not a chit chat with him. It's probably stressing him out. I mean he said many times how he wants to go and live alone in cabin in the woods, and what's happening is that he is locked up inside of his own creation :)

    Hmm, I expected at least a few to get on board and commit to it but seems like most of the people come here just to entertain their ego instead of doing actual work. Is that true?

    Don't forget the other side of things. You know.. They may be really busy self-actualizing so they can't commit to your question. :( So busy self-actualizing... Like, dancing in the clubs or some s**t. You never know...

    So many good books are recommended here, with which one do I even start

    Start with Allan Pease - Body Language  book, and after you finish reading it and practicing/making observations and learn how to 'read' peoples thoughts you should immediately move on to reading NLP books. There are many, and you can start with any one of them you like. However, learning body language first will be a good start..

    Awesome video! hahaha... you got it right!

    I will also read those books about NLP, sound interesting.

    Yes, I can give you my word that it is not  pseudo-science. The stuff really works, and when you become a master of it you're basically gonna be like Trump, or maybe worse... Depending on your 'heart'. :) But NEVER ever share the fact that you're learning NLP with your friends/girlfriend/community. It gives you a SIGNIFICANT advantage over them. I shared this here because I love you guys too much on here. Okay, now I'm waiting for Leo to criticize me, telling me how bad it is for enlightenment to be manipulative & sneaky! Bring it on, Leo! ;)

    Sounds alot like what derren brown did, could you please go further and teach me NLP techniques. 

    NLP involves too many variables and details to explain it down in one article. You'll have to read Richard Bandler - Persuasion Engineering  <--- However, before getting anywhere near NLP I recommend reading Allan Pease - Body Language    <--- It will teach you how to read people's thoughts by their body gestures, so that helps you figure out WHEN you should use NLP in the first place.

  8. Donald Trump is using very advanced set of techniques called NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). It is a very powerful thing, I have used it many, many times. Mostly I used it on girls to make them fall in love with me to the point of fanaticism, and I also used it to make a cashier believe i already gave her the money for the products, without actually giving any money. People who think Donald Trump is a fool and doesn't know what he's doing, are basically wrong. This guy is a master-mind and a demonic leader. By the way, I made a YouTube video, making fun of Donald Trump. You can see it here! 


  9. one day I find myself listening to Ovnimoon - I AM mantra and being in the 'enlightenment mode' all serious. And then the second day I find myself listening to DJ bobo - Somebody Dance With me, and just dancing under that song. I think self-expression is very important in terms of mental health no matter how primitive it looks/feels. Besides, it helps you become less shy as a person. Btw, check that Dj bobo song its awesome! ;)

    I think true science and true spirituality have the same basic core: increasing understanding and awareness and removing bullshit. Fortunately in science there was some kind of progress in recent years, there is a somewhat good community of people who are trying to increase understanding. But most people still fall for pseudoscience. In spirituality it is much worse than that, almost everything I think is pseudosprituality and you only can find nuggets of truth here and there. The problem may be is that it is easy to show experiment but it is much harder to communicate internal world. So science is in much, much, much better shape right now.

    @asgard94 The yogic system avoids it. Also other things you cannot eat raw like onions or eggplant. It's said it drains your energy (negative pranic foods). Also your body will not survive a larger portion of these things and even has some physical reactions (crying) against it.

    Other things like lemon or greens are considered positive pranic foods because they vitalize your system. 

    As far as i can see there is some truth behind it even though i haven't experienced with it that much.


    Yes but we can't make decisions based on what some ancient yogis and cultures that had no scientific research concluded. . . 

  12. I don't know what Leo has to say, But personally I believe that the true change occurs when you find out the answer for those questions on your own. Because as long as there is a sensation inside of you, that you have been helped and guided, your progress may always be limited/linked to the person who helps you. The value of progress achieved truly on your own is far greater than that of having been helped. An 'external' example would be.. Marrying a rich person, and becoming wealthy by the help of this another person, versus the wealth acquired by putting a lot of effort to achieve success on your very own. Of course both sides of reality have their ups and downs, however, in the long run I believe it is worth seriously committing to solving your internal and external problems, on your own. The same applies for fitness. Unless you switch that laptop off, go and do the cardio, run and stay on a balanced diet, you will never find out the answer.

    " All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better." ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson

  13. I believe the question is what do you need self help for. If its success and money then put emphasis on learning how to be successful. If you want to 'ascend' to a higher plane of existence, realize the whole nothingness philosophy and live in the woods, learn the things required for it. But i'd suggest you focus on the first one. But I have to say, that there is only 1 step separating theory and action. All you have to do is put all your mind to it, and make that step come true.

  14. I am INTP. The Logician! A great master mind. But not greater than Leo Gura, I must confess. I don't think that this personality test should be taken too seriously! First of all, because the human mind is not a constant. It always changes, it is flexible. You may be this now, but that tomorrow, and so on. . . And if you admire the current personality too much, you will miss a chance to grow and become something more.
