  1. @hinawashi I guess it depends on the level of consciousness. Both are ways of going about serving the ego, but the sustainable one is likely a more conscious program, or a more developed paradigm, like going through spiral dynamics stages. I’d imagine having a sustainable way would mean needing to consider all the other egos too, whereas the other is all about my immediate ego. Even though addictions seem like an obvious non-serving exercise, it does give immediate gratification and that’s the only concern there. To get to the concern for a sustainable approach it’d probably need to face up to and realise the limits of immediate ego gratification. The rich getting richer for example, might need to see how that’s not doing anything for them, their awareness might raise to wider concern. Do you think that’s the case?
  2. Yeah just say to yourself “It happened. Fact.” Then notice the uselessness of your thoughts trying to take it further and trying to put it in your own hands, what a waste of time
  3. @Process I think how it works is it helps you tap into the essence of the thing you’re doing rather than being lost as part of it e.g. you might take the meaning of your negative thoughts and run away with them, beleiving in them, or you start seeing them as a kind of noise that is just happening for the sake of it, but that they don’t really mean anything, then that makes them easier to let go of But if you try to stop the habit without learning what the essence of it is, you’ll still be in that place of taking the meaning seriously, so in the inevitable case a negative thought pops up, you’ll go straight back to the old way of approaching it
  4. @Hardkill If you're in a situation you hate, you have to first find your emotional balance and peace within. That means accepting where you are, letting go of certain patterns of thought that make the situation unbearable and just feeling as much flow and ease as possible. Don't try to move on from a place of panic and despair, you'll end up remaining very ineffective in your attempts to move on. Once you've truly become more easy about yourself and situation, which will create symptoms of being able to wake when you need to and do better in your daily life and tasks, then start to move towards solutions. You just have to notice opportunities suited to your preferences, get creative, be realistic. Remember you have this amazing resource called the internet where you can learn all sorts of skills etc. Start taking actions but from that place of balance. You need to sort all those imbalances that are making it difficult for you to do anything properly first.
  5. @George Fil Will you be fine to survive and live during those 3 years of failure? If it's what you really want and you don't rely on your job for survival you should focus on it, and learn more about business so you can be sure of making progress If you need the money you could save up and quit later, meanwhile take small steps given your time resitriction to learn more of what you want, how to do it, where you're going etc. Then put it into proper action when you're ready to quit
  6. @Claire Verlyn I've done most of them at night and I've still noticed improvements, I don't really think the time matters except make sure you're feeling alert. Sometimes though I've meditated when tired at night, got very relaxed then stopped feeling tired, and had a really nice session, as long as you do it, you're doing it
  7. @Ariel It reflects how we must develop to be able to function more effectively as a self You can do what you want, and that will either have disastrous consequences or ones conducive to living a good life, this kind of acts as a guide to help you recognise what needs you're being motivated by and what are the helpful rather than damaging ways to fulfill those needs In your pickup example, maybe someone uses pickup to manipulate and that reduces their feelings of self-honesty, integrity and authenticity, all of which reduce self-esteem, one of the needs. You can do what you want but it will have consequences. Maybe pickup gives someone the façade of self-esteem on the outside but they will end up unfulfilled in their needs.
  8. Under stand (this might mean something) quest ion a void (avoid a void) Is you? Issue.. is you Heard .. herd Fund a mental ??
  9. @DavidBorja You have good talent for voice, humour and information giving, I'd just say the jumping to different scenes for every point was distracting so making it less jumpy might help you reduce workload P.S. Do you play animal crossing? That music was super nostalgic
  10. @Pluck This happens to me too where I'm wondering if I'm doing it right, following the technique or wondering if something should be realised The trick is to be aware of that question being asked as well or your attempts to do the technique properly Then the meditation is happening at the same time as wondering if you're even meditating
  11. @Pure Imagination The best testing ground! Just notice what issues you have around family and use that to focus your growth efforts
  12. @Joseph Maynor That's called being a zen devil, see the video on that topic to learn of the pitfalls
  13. @Coraline It's that issue of balance again. If you want to create results in your life it's important to do certain things with direction, focus and consistency But... too much of that is robotic and dulling to the intuition, spontenaity, creativity and playfulness, acceptance, letting go, all that good stuff So, I'd say figure out where you can relax more, how you can give yourself time to let loose so to speak, and still get things done. It could also play out in approach, you could try approaching even rigid tasks with more ease and it could lighten up the routine. There's going to be the daily ways, weekly ways and yearly ways of balancing your schedule with ease so do that as appropriate too like a holiday
  14. @Visionary I've found questioning very helpful, it leads to a domino effect kind of thing where you can end up moving towards or reaching better conclusions, more in tune with greater perspective. Have you ever had those moments where you just stop for a second and you go into a quiet kind of lull where questions about something are swirling around on your mind and it leads to a change in direction or new understanding? Like that! Its probably important to ensure emotions are in check and that it's not a forceful kind of questioning but just genuinely feeling relaxed and then wondering
  15. This picture would look super interesting from an alien's perspective after seeing tons of planets just bare, then this! We're so used to it but if we didn't know what humans or Earth were, wow!
