  1. How do you even shut it down? @Leo Gura Involuntary anxious thoughts are inevitable and cannot be controlled. Just don't react to them. How can we 'shut them down'?
  2. And how can we learn to use our mind 'properly'? @Leo Gura
  3. @Leo Gura Would you say it'd be better if we spend some time getting involved with the paths of human spirituality before moving on to psychedelics and explore 'the Alien thing beyond' (if it exists and it's not your mind playing tricks on you - sorry, gotta remain skeptical)?
  4. @Water by the River Any advice for beginners in Kriya? I'm hearing all the times that many teachings have been ''distilled'' and I wanna avoid that. What books do you recommend?
  5. @Sidra khan What's the problem with her making a post about this lmao. His behavior is unacceptable. What are you trying to say?
  6. @Leo Gura is your 'baseline' constantly different compared to how you were before you tried psychedelics? Like, are you almost constantly aware of how you fabricate reality as 'God'? Also, can meditation/Yoga raise baseline?
  7. Go to the gym, practice self-compassion (there is a very famous book on it by Neff) and realize that your ex are not 'they'. Bulking is indeed hard in the beginning, but you have to push through and then eating gets easier. I can personally help you out in regards to training/nutrition for muscle hypertrophy, feel free to DM
  8. @WonderSeeker I assume many of the approaches went just fine and you got the number etc. and you met up with the girl too, it's just that you didn't get laid. That's VASTLY different from whether or not an approach is considered a 'success'. Getting laid from the girl you approached when on a date with her is on a different ballpark. Taking this into account your post is not too nihilistically discouraging, but us that wanna begin this journey should see this post as a stern message to start taking this SERIOUSLY. Please never give up and keep trying, I wish you the best my friend.
  9. @Leo Gura As a person who went through a lot of trial-and-error in pick-up yourself, how do you explain this? 0/400 seems rare or are we having too high-hopes for pick-up success?
  10. What exactly do you mean by 'first principles'?
  11. @Leo Gura I've read a few pages in this mega-thread and I've seen that you talked about you never following a specific order for the techniques, about just doing what felt like it worked the most for you, building your own toolkit etc. This is different to the opinion you've expressed a few years ago in a blog video named "Don't Half-Ass Yoga!", where you talked about how the guys who constructed the lessons are spiritual geniuses and that we should respect them by following the order of everything as it's been illustrated to us - they knew what they were doing! Both opinions sound reasonable, I wanted to ask you...what are your thoughts now? What's your opinion about doing other yogic techniques along with Kriya, and also more generally (beyond just Yoga) what is your input regarding the concept of mixing different spiritual techniques in one's journey to Awakening? Does there always have to be a specific order to things that needs to be respected? Is it okay to spread a couple of spiritual techniques throughout the day/week/whatever (eg. do Kriya in the morning, then a few hours later do Self-inquiry, then do Vipassana etc.)? Will this 'mix' produce undesirable effects? Will one technique affect another and make it less potent? Is this ‘mixing’ more ideal/effective when it’s done with specific spiritual techniques from specific philosophies/systems? Or the mentality of "just doing what feels intuitively right and has produced results for you" suffices? Thank you for your enlightening content.
  12. The thing with self-help is, how can one be constantly aware of all the information they've learned so that they can 'pull the appropriate tool out of their toolbox' at the time of need? How can you remember everything at once? @Leo Gura
  13. What were the most powerful and technical techniques you feel helped you?
  14. @Leo Gura You still agree with what that video says? After so many years?
