  3. I also highly resonate with this as a biracial man. I felt sliced in half most of my life, I didn't know what point of view hold and how to identify. People often tried to judge me and put me in a box depending on their own background. Now I don't even care anymore because the more I do self-actualization work, the more I lose my identity. P-S: Ça fait plaisir de voir d'autre personnes qui parlent français, on est pas très nombreux ici

This is what happened yesterday. I wanted to go to bed, but got some cravings for porn. I went watch some porn and as I expected it made me incredibly agitated and bring the fear out. I was unable to sleep because I was feeling so much fear, so I watch dumb things on Youtube until 1:00 AM. The result was a sleepless night and an unproductive day.

  6. What you are doing is very courageous, continue.
  7. I don't think that it's useful to discuss so much about the details because George Floyd's case isn't isolated. The issue is that there is a general criminality and racism problem in the US. I also don't think that making the police more sensitive to other people difficulties (even though it will surely avoid some situations) will solve the problem because when a disproportionate amount of a country's population is at a low level of consciousness the police needs to adapt and to be tough in order to not get overblown. A policeman cannot trust an aggressive and/or deranged person and expect him to calm down, nor always handle a person peacefully. However, it's certainly possible to avoid creating these kinds of situations by fixing the base through actions like: financial help for people who are the most in need increasing salaries free and high-quality education for everyone, everywhere free and mandatory psychological follow-ups banning guns marketing to bring consciousness about these issues more multiculturalism I think it will naturally happen through the next 50 - 100 years. We just need to be patient.
  8. We need to find another way to communicate than through social media, all the mainstream platforms are garbage. I feel like an incompetency crisis is coming as more and more people from Gen Z with low focus and work ethic is entering the job market, and it will not get better with Gen Alpha. Millions of people are currently struggling around the world because they have ADHD caused by social medias. It will have an economic impact and will impact the stability of societies if governments don't take this issue seriously. Sometimes I see 3 or 4 years old kids with smartphones, their parents aren't conscious of all the harm they are causing to them. Serious news websites with more written and in-depth analysis are currently the best news sources.
  9. 03/03/2021 (Week 6) If I wanted to raise my self-esteem today, I could... slow down relax breath profoundly take more time when doing my activities bring more intensity to my activities put intense focus to what I'm doing be kind while properly balancing assertiveness when communicating with people focus on one thing at the time If I am more accepting of my feelings... I'm more able to recognize my emotions I'm more able to see where I am on the emotional scale I can easily move up the emotional scale I can develop more and more emotional mastery I would open myself more to people I would share more easily my feelings I can more easily direct my life If I deny and disown my feelings... I create conflicts within myself I create resistance within myself I entertain fear within myself I entertain pain within myself I keep myself separated in different parts I keep myself away from authenticity I keep myself away from emotional mastery I don't live life to its fullest If I am more accepting of my thoughts... I'll have a clearer mind I'll have more facilities to organize my thoughts I accept to experience my thoughts I'll accept some of my difficult thoughts I'll try to understand where some of my disgusting thoughts are coming from I'll be able to heal my mind If I deny and disown my thoughts... I refuse to experience life I refuse to understand myself I move away from myself I refuse to exercise my mind I contribute to lowering my cognitive abilities I'm refusing to acknowledge my biases I refuse to evolve I entertain a low-quality life

  11. Thoughts on Loneliness -- Daniel Mackler
  12. I'm going to argue the opposite. I think that in 5 minutes just by looking at someone or listening to someone it's already possible to have a taste of how healthy someone is. In 5 minutes, I can already know that someone like Sadhguru is overall very healthy and someone like Trump is overall very unhealthy.
  13. 02/03/2021 (Week 6) If I wanted to raise my self-esteem today, I could... meditate profoundly work with intense focus keep a relaxed body articulate more my words open myself listen with more intensity If I am more accepting of my feelings... I'll be more able to recognize them I'll be more able to understand their source I would experience them I would use them properly I would accept that I have needs I would move up faster the emotional scale If I deny and disown my feelings... I contribute to creating tensions in my body I contribute to the creation of internal mental illness I feel less authentic I feel constricted I have more difficulties to go through life I remove a part of myself I feel bad If I am more accepting of my thoughts... I'll have clearer thoughts I'll be more able to organize my thoughts I'll accept having incredible ideas I'm entertaining a healthy experience of life I'll be more able to distinguish thoughts that serve me I'll be more powerful at using my mind If I deny and disown my thoughts... my mind gets blurry my mind gets disorganized I repress a part of myself I remove a natural tool of my life I enter in conflict within myself I cannot solve many of my psychological issues
