  1. Here post powerful,inspiring motivational or epic music here. Disclaimer: Please only post music under those categories.This includes anything that has an inspirational ,powerful, motivational or epic tone to it. Please keep anything that doesnt fall under these categories out. ( I wouldnt consider the Thomas the Tank Engine theme particularly inspirational ,powerful, motivational or epic neither would I consider something like "Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk ft. Bruno Mars" or "Taylor Swift - Shake It Off". I will post another for thread for high energy, funk type,pop, rock, Jazz, country,folk,blues,reggae, punk rock, techno , rapping ,ambient music etc, or someone else can post a thread for such music. ) There may be some exceptions in these categories in for example say rapping, where I would assume there is some rap that has a particularly inspirational ,powerful, motivational or epic tone to it. Same with all the other genres, there will be the odd song that has a inspirational ,powerful, motivational or epic tone to it. Here are some of my favourites The Skyrim Theme Attack on Titan Theme Two Steps From Hell - To Glory Two Steps From Hell - Protectors of the Earth Strength of a Thousand Men - Two Steps from Hell Two Steps From Hell - Archangel Two Steps From Hell - Victory Two Steps from Hell - Heart of Courage Mulan - i'll make a man out of you Night of Nights (Flowering nights remix) Matheo - This is where we fight Pegboard Nerds & Tristam - RazorSharp
  2. I am 17 and 125lbs. I have a small appetite. I live in a rural area. My nearest gym is 10 miles away. It's not a nice flat urban 10 miles, lots of up elevation changes, going up hills, and down hills, varying in steepness.It's cold, it's wet, the roads are shit, the drivers can be careless. I want to gain weight and muscle mass (hypertrophy). I said I was going to go to the gym this summer, after 4 days, I gave up, my body ached. The journey sucked. I gave up Cycling for me takes 50 minutes to get there. (So it takes 50 minutes of cycling each way) .Walking takes 2 hours (each way). I hate the cycling , not sure if it was just my untrained body, but it was tough on my quads, and they felt weaker everyday I did it, during that summer I did cycle down to my local town (20 minutes cycle away) quite frequently and it sucked. I'm considering making a home gym for this reason. Or, should I just tough it out? As it is my appetite is small, It is hard for to eat a lot, further more the cycling burns a minimum of 500 calories. There is no excuses, I know if I had to, I could cook up a big batch of rice and carry it with me alongside water and some olive oil in a rucksack. Run the 10 miles there. Do my workout for an 1 hour. Run 10 miles back. 5 days a week. (Or cycle, but with the elevation changes and bendy, shitty roads, it sucks equally, just takes less time) Is there any benefit of me making that commute just to get to the gym in order to gain muscle mass? I'm not anti-cardio, but fuck me, seems like it would be considerably easier to get a home gym. I'm not sure what to do. I think the most efficient option would to get some dumbbells and a bench instead of having to haul ass 20 miles to gym, 10 miles each way. I live in Ireland? If anyone has any good links to weight sets I could buy from amazon (amazon.co.uk that is) is some other UK/Eurpeon website feel free. I feel like my progress with Calisthenics is to slow. Has anyone have any experience in gaining weight and muscle mass. I'm a skinny guy and weak. This needs to be fixed. What is the best equipment I could get without having to spend a shit-ton?
  3. Context My research on spiral dynamics is as follows: -All Leo's videos -http://spiraldynamicsintegral.nl/en/red/ -And skimming through the site mentioned above, and other random sites. -TJ Reeves (Youtube channel) video "If I die, Watch this" Starting at 49:55 -The first page of the chapter on stage red in the spiral dynamics book (So I have not read the actual book) A quick side/rant...and some context. I would assume I do not know it comprehensively, or extensively. So apologies if I am misinterpreting and straying away from the original model. Take everything I say with a pinch of salt. I am perhaps a fool. A note to Leo, I would like to see more videos covering spiral dynamics more deeply. From what I observe on this forum, people seem to spreading misinformation and making up their own models that stray from the original model, but they talk as if their altered model IS the actual model. I myself have not read the actual book. So I cannot be sure if I understand the actual model from the other sources mentioned in the context. I admit that, but others seem to be going around selling their own ideas of the model as if it were the original model. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT vouching for a regression of consciousness, dictatorship, brutality, or/and stage red to be used in a unhealthy way. I am vouching for stage red to be used to progress the consciousness of man. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It seems to me there is to much passivity in people higher up in spiral. An absence of stage red if you will. What is wrong with this you may ask? Well, the "bad guys" end up seizing the power because stage Yellow and Turquoise are to passive, so the guys who have unhealthy excesses of red end up butt-fucking and dominating the higher stages. This includes people in stage blue and orange who have unhealthy excesses of red also. Sure, it's gotten better, but low consciousness still dominates. What can healthy red do? (PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THE CONTEXT OF IMPROVING THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF MAN) Here are the characteristics of red ripped from the spiral integral website. -Impulses and displays of power -“I-orientation”, dominance, power & oppression -Strives for self-preservation and respect -Free from guilt or shame -Fast & Impulsive -Guts (Guts ‘n Glory) -Loyal to those who are considered friends -Decisive and energetic -Enforcement by way of sanctions -Passion “ We’re on a mission!’ -No-nonsense “ If you are not with us, you are against us.” -Urgency: making your business or yourself important: “ Your playing small doesn’t serve the world!” Yes, of course we need more Tier 2 thinkers, but what we need the most is Tier 2'ers who have mastery and continually embody that mastery of the Tier 1 stages on a daily basis, ESPECIALLY stage red. Some people think once you've unlocked the next stage you can move on. NO, no no no no no. Stage Beige is for life, Stage Purple is for life, Stage Red is for Life, Stage orange is for life ETC!! YOU HAVE TO EMBODY THE BEST OF EVERY STAGE TO GET THE MOST OUT OF LIFE. You can just be like "Well, I got a D+ in stage Red way back when when I first unlocked it, I've unlocked yellow now and I'm a master at that, I do not need to go back, I've out grown that I'm *snorts obnoxiously* to high conscious for that" STAGE CORAL LEO FIGHTING STAGE GREEN HERETICS IN THE GRIM DARKNESS OF THE 41st MILLENIUM (Someone please video edit this so it's Leo head on the bald guy) In conclusion, my point is. Having healthy stage red is vitally important for seizing power, and I'd rather have the power in the hands of Tier 2 than in the lower half of stages in Tier 1. Red is often demonized , it should not. It is a powerful tool that requires great responsibility, and when you cease to take responsibility, you have unhealthy red, which is has created some of the worst suffering in the history of man. (I could be wrong, and I likely am wrong, I would love to hear your guys thoughts.)
  4. Link to take the test: https://s.surveyanyplace.com/s/saafe Context: Among the many mentors I'm subscribed to on youtube (Leo Gura included) one of them recently released a Self-Awareness test after having gone quiet on youtube for several months, apparently with Spiral Dynamics integrated into the the test. Seemed interesting so I tried it out. I found it was well made enough that it's worth sharing here to see what you guys think. My experience with the test and the manual: The test took me around 50 minutes to answer.At the beginning of the test it said it was deliberately designed for your interpretation so I kept that in mind, so as not to answer questions too literally. At some point during the test there was a slider you have to move across the screen that I did not know was even there so, make sure you don't get stuck on that. You can take the test anonymously. You have to fill out a form, but it lets you leave most of it blank. The questions were pretty clear and easy to answer, I was pleasantly surprised of the lack of overly esoteric questions. The most impressive thing however is the manual at the end. At the end of the test, I got my own "personalized" PDF document manual, explaining what each component and sub component of each spiral dynamics level meant in relation to the scores I got in each spiral dynamic level. The entire thing is basically a 52 page self-awareness manual telling you EXACTLY where in your life you are lacking. This is the table of contents. This is an example of what your overall score in Stage beige (I just changed the numbers in photo-shop for my own privacy's sake) This is an example of the different sub component scores that make up the overall scores for beige. This is the page explaining which each one means. I have not studied the original Spiral Dynamics works but from reading through the entire manual myself, this seems to be about the most comprehensive and clear spiral dynamics test I have took so far, with all the spiral dynamic stages, including coral. This is pretty brilliant. OVERALL Pro's and Con's: Pros -Free -You can it anonymously -Clear questions -Comprehensive Manual -Quick to take -Accurate -Seems to have integrated elements from many different sources, including Jordan Peterson, Ken Wilber, Claire Graves and Don Beck etc Cons -Possible lack of questions determining certain metrics. -Results can be skewed depending on what mood your in when taking the test? I'd really like to see more test's like these. Tell me what you guys think, of if you can recommend other tests, I'd love to try them out. I feel like someone could make a test based off Leo's new video on the point of life, I don't know, tell me what you think.
  5. Thank you for the advice everyone here. It is appreciated. <3
  6. There should be only one vision board, the rest are fucking distractions.
  7. Leo every time he has to re shoot a new video
  8. It's not the truth. I don't know much. There are more factors. If you really want to know. Talking to girls is something you can directly experience. So do it.
  9. Get in contact with TJ Reeves, ask for his foundations course. Apply it,
  10. I think it's worth a shot. I know it's hard, but I would not take him blocking you to personally. I think you would get a lot out of his Foundations course. If you want , I could try talk to him and get you unblocked and access to the course for free to help with your struggle and get your shit together. No promises though, I'll have to see what he says. I would not get stuck in the skeptic mindset. Do I know his true intentions? No. But it's worth a shot, and it does not cost me much. Overanalysing will not. Investigation through experience WILL HELP, I highly recommend you do this with TJ's foundations course, which is basically about getting your shit together and it would suit you PERFECTLY. I believe it is free. It can be difficult to fall into the trap of assuming something is to good to be true. Be careful. I'm not saying I know TJ is 100% legit, but what he has to say is worth investigating. Who cares that your theory of spiral dynamics clashed with his? It does not matter, it does not help. It's no ones fault. You have to ground yourself in the practice, Mind, Body, Relationships, Business. Are you attending to any of these 4 pillars properly? If your not, of course your suffering. If you want to voice chat we can talk on discord or snapchat. You should be skeptical of your own skepticism. The best course of action is to investigate with direct experience thoroughly to find what true. If you take TJ Reeves foundations course , and LITERALLY apply what he says, you will get your shit sorted, and your life will improve. I have not taken action on it yet, but it is CLEAR to me, to what I must do. AND if I do these things, my life will improve. 100% guaranteed That being said. I'm 17. I am lazy, and I need to get my shit together. It saddens me to hear of the abuse you have had to endure. I have great hope for you. I'd give you a big hug if you were here right now. I hope you find peace on your journey. Feel free to contact me, if you ever fall into serious financial difficulties, I'll spare what I can. ( I don't have much) I believe and you. And please, if your angry at TJ , forgive him. I want you to succeed, he wants you to succeed. So what if he seems arrogant. He's offering a helping hand, like Leo, to ME , and to YOU. Take it. Please. I beg of you. ?
  11. Thank you for this. Do you have any tips on how to not have to constantly go for a shit due to the increased food? At what times should I eat such that I'm not going to have to go for a shit in a field mid cycle. How much water did you drink and how often did you not to go for a shit a day? Go faster? Really? Would it not me drain me more for my workout?
  12. I want you to get into contact with TJ Reeves on Instagram. He perhaps can provide you with some help. https://www.instagram.com/tjreevesmindbodybuilder/?hl=en Take this assessment (he made it with his team) http://thetest.thecodetest.com/takers/register Once you have done it, message him and tell him you have taken the test and would like to do a C.O.D.E briefing session with him. He will schedule a time for you to have the session via some video call service. If you don't have a webcam use your phone. With the the help of the assessment you took he will be able to help you get your shit together and start living the good life. If you watch Leo's weekly uploads, you should watch his channels uploads too. I WANT you to do this. THIS WILL CHANGE YOU. No. I don't have a girlfriend. I have not tried hard enough. I have not push outside of comfort zone enough. Do not wait for something to happen. It's up to you. You need to stop being the biggest bully to yourself. "I'm never going to have a girlfriend?" Lies. I believe in you. I don't know much. Message me and I'll do the best I can to help you out. The main thing is to get in contact with TJ and have a code briefing session. It will change your life if you are willing
  13. Did you how Low T? From skimming around youtube and the internet,from what I gathered from skimming around was that steroids cause permanent long-term damage and decrease longevity. Which puts me off doing them entirely. Stuff life it perma damaging your kidney. I did not do too much research. Is this true or does it depend? Whats your experience.
  14. Ground Looser my brother. Put this thread in the Self-Actualized subsection instead of this one, a lot more people will see it there. @Leo Gura @Emerald @Joseph Maynor @Shin @Shiva @K VIL @Truth Help a brother out. In standing up to my parents. I found it useful to all the way when standing up to them. For example, if they ask for your phone, refuse to give them your phone. In your case, refuse to give her the keys, see if she calls the cops. Don't be afraid of that, let her do that. The key is FIGHT not flight. If they shout at you, roar back as loud and as intimidatingly as you can (put on you f*cking war voice) in order to get them to leave you alone. Do not start arguments, with every new interaction with them, always be calm, but if they "start" on you, by being negative, kick in your war voice. "ARE YOU F*CKING STARTING ON ME?" Take my advice with a pinch of salt, I'll go into detail later, cant right now. I hope you find peace on your journey. If you need someone to talk to, add me on snapchat: lorcandbanter or even message me on this forum.
  16. What TJ Reeves says about integrating stage red. Red is NOT an unhealthy stage. NO stages are inherently unhealthy. YOU choose whether or not to integrate a stage in a Healthy or unhealthy manor. Red is about power. Red is about not being a coward. What makes a coward is making the wrong choice in the face of fear, and fear is falsehood. Falsehood must be OBLITERATED. Red HAS A CLEAR purpose with his life. Red is not afraid to be gritty and aggressive in the face of fear. Red gets out there and gets after it, his goal, which SHOULD involve being more loving. A Red exercises willpower to be excellent in order to dominate in order to win. This is an ACTIVE thing, NOT a passive thing. Red is about picking something and sticking with it. Red is about fighting. NOT constantly surrendering and being passive. Take this with a pinch of salt. I do not really know. Nor do I embody it. (Which I should embody it, it's fucking hard.)
  17. Take what I said lightly. I am not sure of it , and I do not embody it. Not yet. It takes work which I have not put in.
  18. The sort of attitude here, if you can feel it, I have a bare bones understanding of Spiral Dynamics, only drawing from Leo's videos and TJ Reeves video regarding it. "Red can just be anyone who feels little empathy and will actively hurt others on an impulse to get what they want as morally repugnant as that sounds, there are still qualities about red (and purple mentioned previously) to be integrated." It is not necessarily morally repugnant, it depends on what one wants. The lesson to be learned is to be Aggressive, not passive. By being to passive, you let all kind of evil to run rampant in this reality, and I suppose being to Aggressive is what creates all sorts of evil in the first place. Power comes from a place of dominance which is attained through being Aggressive, not by being passive. Passivity has it's own place. Red needs to be fully integrated. Red is the fuel of Hero's. People think Aggressiveness is bad, I would say it depends where that aggressiveness is directed and to what extent. If it is directed to the right fight you have a powerful force.
  19. Something I discovered while I was feeling really stressed is intense heavy deliberate breathing while doing a full back bridge stretch. Also affirming I am god and that "All the worlds strength and power rests inside me" affirmation nahm told me to to do a couple of years ago. It works, also affirm "Nothing is impossible to him who will try" , get yourself in that hype mood. Also, breathing in out in such a way that you are attempting to make your nose clear, helps if you head is tilted slightly up while doing it, put you hand over one nostril such you are only blowing out of one nostril and blow as hard as you can. The goal is the clear as much mucus as possible, if any matter at all comes out it's working, get it the point where the air comes in out so easily as if it were a clear pipe. Do this in the cold for extra energy, I remember doing various bio-energetic stretch exercises out in the cold , and it works.
  20. If you come to Ireland. I think I'll be the only one showing up lol
