  1. It even has a neat theme song!
  2. In the neat blog post Leo made about super mario spiral dynamics, the end state has a fictional game called "super mario infinity". The latest mainline mario, that is not represented, came out in late 2017. It is called "super mario odyssey". In this game you can "become one" with your enemies! Super mario non duality!
  3. @youngshinzen There is good science behind meditation post workout https://bebrainfit.com/mental-health-benefits-exercise/ lately, I have been focusing less on following programs and directions and more on making my own mind up. So even if you may not find a meditation teacher that tells you to meditate post work out, you can use your science-backed knowledge of the human body to make your own mind up that it is a good idea.
  4. I love that you have arrived at some of these ideas yourself without me having to bring them up. It is awesome. Since we are similar people on similar paths, and I am a bit older than you, and have been on this path a bit longer, I want to advise you on something. Drop all spiritual pursuits and focus on the practical. In particular, stop listening to Lincoln for a little while. Try thinking for yourself using your own senses and experiment. Focus on improving relations with the people around you. Have some common humanity. "Disobey" Lincoln and his teachings if you must. Use common sense and a wider variety of sources. If you keep doing what you are doing and achieve more and more happiness, success, and empowerment, then more power to you. But, if you wind up again in the dark place that you were in a few posts ago, then heed my advice. You might be surprised at how good you feel. The lack of sleep you documented in a few of your posts is very troubling and will set you up for illnesses of all kinds including mental ones. The deficient diet you documented is also very troubling. Two breatharians that I came across were proven to be frauds. One of them under scientific scrutiny. This website is a wonderful resource that I started using recently and I love it. https://www.optimize.me/
  5. @Scholar I can see this perspective sometimes, but I think if misused it can lead to apathy, nihilism, and delusion. for example, I think it mattered a lot when the first doctor figured out that when he washed his hands more baby's survived. He was willing to go against medical orthodox and face ridicule to make the point. Imagine if he had the idea, "well there is a reason that babies die, and who am I to question the natural order of things." Instead, he did the human thing, solved a problem and saved millions of lives. Actions have consequences, inaction has consequences. There is much we don't know. There is much to be improved. Don't misuse everything is perfect.
  6. There are a million reasons one can cite for why she lost, but the main one is that if she had campaigned a teeny weeny bit harder in the rust belt she would have easily won and none of this trump saga would have existed.
  7. @zoey101 I agree Hillary wasn't a great choice, but dear god would she have been better than Trump.
  8. "Referring back to the Australian experience, voluntary voting prior to 1924 accounted between 47% and 78% turnout of eligible voters. Following the introduction of compulsory federal voting in 1924, this figure jumped to between 91% and 96%.[11] with only 5% of eligible voters accounted as not enrolled.[12]"
  9. I also don't know all the answers this is a very complicated matter. I think the corrupt media is to blame for a lot of the political woes. If Bernie Sanders had been given as much coverage as Clinton and Trump he could have won and you would have a politician in the white house more in line with Jesus's message of feed the poor, end wars, mend the sick. But Ultimately this poem comes to mind. "When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world."

  11. I love your nuanced thinking. The simplest and wisest thing I can say is to choose your sources of information wisely. Some countries, I think Lithuania is one, have mandatory voting. I think it is electronic so anyone with a phone can easily vote. Generally speaking in the U.S. The more people that show up the more likely Republicans are to lose. So they are very crafty about suppressing voting. It happens on the Democratic side too among different factions. That is the incentive to limit voting.
  12. I was going to make a post regarding this connection to physiological health, but didn't make the time to formulate it. basically, science is your friend. Scour this website and use the info as you see fit. https://bebrainfit.com/ best of luck to you. also,
  13. welcome
  14. @Scholar excellent video thanks for sharing
  15. These affirmations can help cement some of these quotes in, so they become second nature. Most effective if used on a regular and consistent basis. easier said than done, but at least this tool will be available if you choose to use it. I am the beauty I am becoming I am authentic I am enjoying the journey being me I am being true to myself I am talented and inspired through my creativity I am who I am I know myself well and I live an authentic life I love who I am I surround myself with others I enjoy being with. I am present for others I open myself to receiving others who love me for who I am Being myself, others embrace me, and this makes me more of who I am I live an authentic life I am worthy, it’s who I am I keep true to myself I am honest with who I am and what I love I feel at ease being me I surround myself with authentic people I share my opinions with ease I am safe with who I am I am happy to show my true colors I am perfect with my imperfections I am surrounded by precious gifts that life has to offer I gift my gifts for others to share I live my life unapologetically I choose to wear clothes that feel good for me I allow others to live their lives for who they are I am rewarded with abundance from the Universe, by being true to who I am Moment by moment, I remain true to my values I let go of others with ease and grace, of those who no longer serve my authentic needs
