  1. For low consciousness women.(The majority) Yes. From my perceptions at school. I agree. It is mostly looks.
  2. You seem to be want to be a political revolutionary. So do I. Take heed. If you are going to fight something. You need to be very specific on what your fighting exactly and how you are fighting it. Otherwise your just flailing your arms in the air, or whipping the sea, and your not helping anyone. You'll just become some prick lost in his books and theory and ends up getting jack shit and done, or you become possibly a crazed idealog and corrupt dictator thats absolutely consumed in his ideaology that he just causes more suffering than good. Joy is what you want right? Not just for yourself, but for others. To change society in such away the generates the most joy for the individual as possible right? Look here. Do not get lost in theory. Figure out the MOST direct way of creating that in real life. On a global scale. No. Not middle earth. This video is the closest idea to what I have in mind of a perfect society A global, highly eco-friendly society, No regulation, Pure freedom, people managing themselves. High consciousness. I would to live in that kind of society. Just imagine: meditating smoking a joint while breathing in the fresh air while looking at the gorgeous view. having intimate 2 hour long sex (like the way leo describes of having it) in a flower meadow, with a hot girl/ Imagine working hard in the fields, growing and harvesting your own food. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Raising your own free-range animals. going on insane phychadelic trips both for fun and spirtual enlightment. having high quality banter with friends. Crafting your own stuff. Weapons, Furniture. Having your own little thing to contribute. All business is pretty much localised. No monopolies or mega-corporations. Oh god. This is paradise. This makes me cry. And its possible! You just got to start believing its possible and become obsessed and remain playfull and stoic at the same time. There should be no need the mass implementation of an already existing political system. If you do it directly, the system in which you devise gets precisely the job done in the most efficient way possible. I dont know. Just food for thought.
  3. Intelligence to me, is the ability to use your thought to your advantage to manipulate the internal and the external to your liking. Surely a man somewhere sat and felt hungry at some point. What did man man do? He used his intelligence, the manipulation of his thought processes, his inner computer, to determine methods of satiating the hunger, the best methods. Every piece of technology you see, someone, at some point, had to figure it out, from scratch. They tried again, failed again, failed better. Someone had to do their thinking. The quality of there lives depended on it! (Or so they thought) Really. I think you are just fooling yourself if you think you are of high intelligence because you can solve math problems that others cant. No shit you can solve them and others cant, you trained to solve them. Like someone who can bench-press 250 pounds. No shit they can lift that much, because they trained, and surely yes, genetics play some sort of a role, but most of the time, the genetics advantages or disadvantages in intelligence are minor and can be compensated for in strength in other areas. The higher your intelligence, the more efficiently you will be able to solve a problem. Therefore, naturally your intelligence increase through trial and area, trying to solve problems. You mind sees what works and what does not. I do not know. I am just a fool.
  4. 16 here. I have not meditated in a while. I would suggest you start doing it though. Daily. If you are consistent it does work. I had a consistent practice going for 3 months when I was 14-15. Happiest 3 months of my life. In my opinion. Do not worry about getting good grades in school. If you want money, set up your own business. It does not have to be anything original. Cut peoples hair. Open a newsagent or Take-away. Basically, have something to offer to other people. People in your area like drinking and gambling? Brew beer. Set-up your own under-ground shady casino. I do not know. I have ordered a straight razor off amazon. I plan to shine peoples shoes and give sick fades to people at my school in exchange for money.
  5. I agree with this so much. It is indeed a HUGE trap. Not only in business, but in global politics.
  6. I am 16. I to want start a business The wants and needs of people vary, particularly depending on location. The hard-wired drives of a human beings are:Air, Hydration, Food, Comfort and Pleasure, Sex, Self-Survival. Humans are not designed to "seek truth", that gets in the way of maintaining Self-Survival, majorly. Roughly, All desire and wants stem from these one way or the other. Maybe. I cannot be to sure. In my local town in rural Ireland I have assessed the wants of the youth in my area by examining what they say and do. I have also noted what businesses are already set up in the town and are successful. People in my school express a major capital interest and general interest in: -Partying ( Comfort and Pleasure, and Sex) -Alcoholic drinks ( Comfort and Pleasure) -Gambling via betting (Often on Horse racing) (Comfort and Pleasure) -Chipper, Chinese, Pizzeria and other Stodgey Food. ( Comfort and Pleasure and Food) -Recreational use of Drugs (Most commonly Marijuana, Tobacco and Ecstasy) (Comfort and Pleasure) -Fresh Skin Fades (Sex and Comfort and Pleasure) -Rugby, Football (Comfort and Pleasure and Sex) -Instagram and Snapchat(Comfort and Pleasure and Sex) -Sugary Sweets (Comfort and Pleasure) From this. I determine whether of not a business I set up will be profitable or not. More or less. From these I can set up a business already being done in the town, or set up a new one that's different from the other businesses, but still satiates the general specific wants and desires people have. As you can see, trying to set up a business that elevates other people will be a challenge. I am considering on being a street barber. Giving people sick fades for less. Perhaps I could market some legal herbs (of which there are many) to the illegal drug junkie crowd.
  7. Killing yourself is a mystery box of infinite possibilities, but so to is dying from old-age. Perhaps there is a number of hidden variables involved, you have to consider the possibilities. Perhaps a better course of action would be to try somehow figure out what happens after "death" before bringing it on yourself first. Doing so, would be no easy task. Your mind would trick all the way along. Self-deception. You may get to a point where you feel you have figured it out! But aha! No! You have been tricked yet again! By God. Or have you? God is always unsure. Or is he? I do not know. Ask God. I find he often responds with silence, or he talks to himself in a persuading manor and then convinces himself of something that something external or internal is true or false. That would be try to figure out the infinite, and the infinite is not a linguistic thing. The infinite does whatever it wants. Or does it? I do not know. Is the infinite not a linguistic thing? I do not know. Ahahahahahhahaa.
  8. At 16, I feel I have pissed away much of my life already even though I discovered actualized.org and the whole personal development community at 13. THOUSANDS of hours into video games. If not tens of thousands. As my life purpose I want to elevate the human race, I want to have society that has higher consciousness values and in it's operation and day to day activities , the collective populace reflects these values. To this I need power. This might entail to take on the role of a leader, a ruler, maybe a follower or supporter. A revolutionary none the less. It annoys me how mediocre I am. What kind of revolutionary whines on forums asking for help? And perhaps some of you have the same/similar purpose ( I highly doubt, from looking around the forum of the years, this particular life purpose of changing global political culture and how large masses of people function together is not a popular one. I think people to tend to stray away from it as the reckon someone else will sort it out.) The problem of growing up in ordinary circumstances: Case in point - lack of external motives. Motivation is left ENTIRELY to self-discipline There is a concept known as brute forcing. Brute forcing (or beast mode) to me is when you go at something, a goal , 110% and push through ALL the suffering no matter what, you say fuck it to everything else, all the shit that gets in your way and you keep going despite major suffering that may be inflicting. In this mode of being one is highly productive. This mode however is tough on ones morale and it takes big feats of willpower to be able to endure the suffering. Yet. People have successfully pulled it off.... People who have experienced great trauma that is Take David Goggins for example. Watch the first 2 minutes and a half of this video. You will get the idea. This guy HURT bad. Highly Abusive Parents, Constant name-calling, Death threats, Teachers giving him shit. But now look what this spurred him to do. What this man can do should not be possible. He can run 100 miles non-stop. Or lets to consider Wim Hof. His wife kills herself without him really knowing why. Goes on to climb mount Kilomanjaro is his short, and nearly climbed mount everest in shorts but had frostbite problems in his legs just 1000 meters away from the top. Comfort makes me hollow, Comfort makes me weak. Comfort leads to in-action. Comfort leads to mediocrity. Now consider this. This boy who wants to take on such a feat has grown up in ordinary circumstances. Little trauma. No highly abusive parents, No divorces, Sure every now and again he has his hang up with his parents or school, but nothing to really stir him. To push him. No kids at school calling him names or saying stuff like "You cant do X, you cant do Y, are you out of your mind? You will never get anywhere in life" That boy is me, and perhaps many many others with such a huge life purpose. I am have lived, and still live, a comfortable cushy , but hollowing, existence. Daily, I reflect on my life. Occasionally I will do what if statements such as "What if I wake up 4:00 o clock in the morning and go running everyday" "What if I just beast-mode it tomorrow, 1 hour cold exposure, 1 hour of calisthenics, 1 hour of reading, 2 hours of meditation" Every day, I wake up, I go on the computer, play some video games, go off the computer, do some exercise, eat healthy. That is it. Rinse repeat. How can the wannabe emperor of man piss away his time so stupidly. Again and again and again. In a way, I kind of which I had some major trauma inflicted one me in some way, to force me into growth. I wish I could be sent to a Sage School, where I would be forced to become a sage. No such school exists. If I am to become a Modern day Marcus Aurelius (so no Crucifixions and sex slave partys for the shit and giggles). What is the key to self-discipline? How do I unlock my true strength? I am SICK of feeling hollow. Not feeling sad, but this subtle creeping feeling I could be doing so much more, and how do I maintain self-discipline? What to do when de-moralization sets in. Help.
  9. I find myself living a mediocre existence every day over and over again. It make me feel hollow inside What happens is one day I decide to go full beast mode. So I go beast mode, I feel great, I feel motivated as fuck, I get shit done, cold showers for days, meditation, reading, exercise, but then uh-oh, I hit a bump in the road. I wake up on the floor at 4 o clock on the morning , its raining and cold outside and I gotta go for a run and I say to myself "Why the fuck am I doing this to myself" and I give up. I have repeated this cycle of brute force beast modeing only to backslide at the end of it 3-4 times now. How do I maintain beast-mode permanently?
  10. The broker has to be available in Europe. So Robinhood(an American Broker) is not an option. From looking around Degiro seems to be the most viable option. I am looking for a broker with low fees/commissions and a low minimum deposit. I am 16 and do not have a whole lot of money to start investing with but I do want to start investing. Any recommendations?
  11. What is the point of going full vegan? What is wrong with eating just 50g of tuna a day and eat the rest vegetables. That way you get the benefits from haven eaten meat. Is it not so?
  12. I never thought of it this way. So I can actually use pent up sexual energy as fuel for activities that make me more attractive to the opposite sex and more?
  13. I am 16. I started when I was 13. I discovered the channel by googling "how to deal with toxic parents". Leo video on how to deal with toxic people came up. From there, I began watching many videos from Actualized.org. At this young age. My existential view, my idea of what it meant to be a human, radically changed. When I was 15 I got a mediation habit going. I did 40 minutes a day for 3 months in the summer. This was by far the most content I have felt in my life. I wasted away a lot of time when I was 13-16 doing a lot of typical stuff 13-16yr olds do. THOUSANDS of hours playing video-games. I did make attempts at self improvements such as cold showers and meditation and exercise, but I backslided. Again, and again, and again. I have know my life purpose since I was 14. Back then I put it as "To end first world corruption". I never had, and to this day, a clear vision. I do know that I must be a revolutionary , and elevate mankind. Although, this day, I have not used this much as fuel to drive me, even though I should. I have cried for my purpose twice. Although, they were not all natural tears, somewhat forced. I am 16 now, I am mediocre. I have a accomplished little. I notice a drop in consciousness since stopping meditation 4-6 months ago. My focus has shifted for saving mankind to trying pick-up girls in my school. I have not fully given up however. I still hold on. I wish I would of discovered actualized.org even earlier, or realized how fucking significant my life is earlier, yet I STILL piss it away, day, by fucking day. Ahahaha. Maybe I am simply crestfallen. My advice to other teens, is to never give up fully. That way, you can always get back on the path to mastery. If you give up fully. If you shun the way of self-improvement, and submit to the shallow way of living your peers and family go about living. Forget it. Your finished. All the ones like me. Fail over, and over, and over again trying to improve, to rise above the masses. Distractions are everywhere. Be aware of that. And have a vision. Even if its a weak and murky unclear one like mine currently is.
  14. Self deception is notably at work here in this thread. Aha.
  15. In response to your question. You could become a lone wanderer/bard. This is my own personal suggestion as an example. Bring with you a rucksack and put in it what you need to survive. Aside from food. Water and staying warm, especially at night time may be a problem. Deck your bag out with survival gear. It would help if there was some way you could offer value to people. Buy a harmonica, learn how to play it. Play it for money. Go on adventure without rest. See what happens. I doubt doing it will kill you. As long as you keep warm and can access water.
  16. Indeed. Breathing exercises take very little willpower to do. You can do them anywhere. Including your bed when you do not even have the willpower to even get up. Just start breathing.
  17. A HA MY FRIEND! I have but a cure for your ailment. From looking at this post, you probably have never heard of Demontheses! His occupation was a greek statesman(politician) and orator(public speaker) As a boy Demosthenes had a speech impediment, just like you.Demosthenes used to study in an underground room he constructed himself. He also used to talk with pebbles in his mouth and recited verses while running.To strengthen his voice, he spoke on the seashore over the roar of the waves. You can do all 4 of these things. (Perhaps not the first one.) Follow in his footsteps! Find somewhere, anywhere, where you can shout as loud as you can without anyone bothering you. Expand your lung capacity do cardio and chant a miltary cadance while doing it. Also, do some calisthenics (pushups etc). Wouldnt want you a skinny wretch now would we? If your fat, starting cutting. If your skinny start clean bulking. Your self esteem is going to affect how you project yourself to others. Recite poems with a mouth full of moist cheerios, cornflakes or other cereal. We would not want you swallowing a pebble and dying now would we? Aha. Also, get that sexy jawline going for the ladies. Your jaws have muscles. USE THEM! Really exert yourself when chewing your food and before you know it, you'll have a jaw of an Ork. Just kidding. Your jaw should improve though. Standing straight Liakos! Not held straight! I see much potential in you. Your just teeming with energy that's all locked away. It is time. Starting today. You draw out your TRUE strength. May you find peace on your Journey.
  18. Arnold says something in here about how small changes add up to a big victory. The whole video is sound advice as it is.
  19. I am no guru or adept actualizer.I have had bouts of sadness and anxiety before. Not as drastic as you say you have experienced. I am 16 years old. I have back slided more than once in trying to improve myself. One of the most important things to me to remind myself of is to never fully give-up. Ever tried, ever failed? Try again. Fail again. Fail better. If your will is yet unbroken you could try cold exposure. For me, the cold is a great teacher it. It banishes feelings of anxiety and sadness and gives me more willpower once I have relaxed into the cold. I recently back-slided two months ago. I am back getting myself on track today. (By taking a cold shower, and I must do some significant resistance training this evening). Life purpose/goals are crucial. I find having some sort of doctrine to refer to helps. For me, I often refer to Marcus Aurelius when feeling lost or in doubt. My life is far from what I want it to be. I currently live a pretty mediocre existence. I am working on it. I am trying. I hope you may find some joy in the practice of this advice brother. May you find peace on your journey. If your willpower is but a sliver that you can barely get yourself to go drink some water even though your really faster. I recommend breathing exercises. Not for relaxation. But for willpower. Simply breath in as deep as you can, then exhale. (not all the way, don't empty your lungs). Do this at moderate speed. No need to hyper-ventilate. Do this 30-50 times, you should start to feel this tingly feeling, your muscles (all your muscles) will now have extra strength for a limited duration. (Unless you keep breathing deeply of course). This is what I know. Check out the Wim Hof Method for more.
  20. I want to grow food I can eat. I want a high calorie count per square meter. I live in Ireland.Cold and Damp climate. During the Irish famine (according to what our textbooks have said) they practically lived off of the stuff. I heard potatoes are high in calories. I am not looking to make a "fancy" aesthetic garden. I want land that will yield me as many calories as possible. Does anyone know a no-bullshit method to growing and harvesting. A pretty "garden" is not a priority or something I care about. Does anyone here grow crops? If yes. How do you do it? Tell me.
  21. +1 Outbass Reason: I agree, there is no need for reputation at this time. If people want to give a post plus rep. They should do it the way I have done here. It is basically the same thing as giving a thumbs up, but it takes more effort.
  22. Enduring the suffering and resitance of trying to make a change. Both physchial and mental resistance. Trying to get into a state of mind where you can just "Do it" with zero hesitation.
  23. +1 Joseph Maynor Reason: I agree with what you said. It gets rid of this "I have something wiser to say because I have more rep and likes than you". This could not be more from the case. I often saw posts of threads and comments of significant wisdom, but did not get any likes. The forum appears more humble and wise now. An academy of egos trying to learn off each other to become less of an ego rather than a "Look how sage-like I am" status game. There will be less ego running amock on this forum with rep removed as it is now. Keeping rep boosts it.
  24. +1 Outer Reason: I liked what you said Outer. I did not understand what you meant by saying Leo is playing seven dimensional chess or with the statement "as a lesson for no purpose but itself." What is "Itself" here? I am confused. I did feel that there were some reputation seekers on this forum. Those with higher ranks and likes on their posts really stood out, making it really hard for new members voices to be heard in discussion.
  25. I have a simple solution. If you agree with someones post, or believe what they have said is of significant positive value. You can simply express it by quoting them and saying you liked what they said, and why it resonates you etc. Look. I will do an example. If you liked or disliked this post and tell me why. Here is the basic template [+1 or -1.](Plus 1 represent you liked the post. Minus one you disliked the post) [Insert reason for liking and disliking.] See, it is not that hard. We can all then use this to identify what people are agreeing with and what people are disagreeing with. Simple. Not Rocketscience.
