  1. @Leo Gura I think you should start collaborating with mental health professionals to deal with the alarmingly high rates of suicide on this forum.
  2. I recently discovered 'The Psychology Podcast' hosted by Scott Barry Kaufman and I have been really enjoying it! The podcast features interviews with experts in the field of psychology and covers a wide range of topics, including developmental stage theory, cognitive development, and psychosocial development. The host, Scott Barry Kaufman, is a fantastic interviewer and he does a great job of making the topics accessible and interesting for a general audience. I highly recommend giving it a listen if you're interested in learning more about psychology and how it relates to our everyday lives.
  3. It must be some lousy poison since the babies aren’t dying.
  4. @Eternal Unity The book ‘The religion of tomorrow’ has all the details.
  5. That is debatable.
  6. @Eternal Unity I think you’re talking about Ken Wilber’s tier 3: Indigo, Violet, Ultraviolet and White. All of them are related to enlightenment in some way.
  7. @RendHeaven Many people have taken psychedelics, but they have very little development to show for it.
  8. I don’t remember the last time someone came on cnn and raised awareness about non-duality.
  9. It is surprising that someone was able to teach non-duality on the BBC, a major television channel in the UK. This raises the question of why there is not more of this type of content being shown.
  10. DeSantis cannot run again. He will step down in 2026.
  11. It was the depression that led him to study zen and spirituality. 80% of people who enter spirituality do so because of their suffering. So in the end it turned out to be a gift.
  12. @Leo Gura It seems that there has been an increase of conservative individuals on this forum who may not be familiar with the concept of spiral dynamics. I think it might be helpful to pin some of the mega-threads on this topic, as it has been a while since you last made a video on it.
  13. @Mips ChatGPT answer: Q: Does 5-meo-dmt cause epilepsy? A: 5-MeO-DMT is a psychedelic substance that can cause a range of effects, including altered consciousness and changes in perception, mood, and thought. There is no evidence to suggest that 5-MeO-DMT directly causes epilepsy. However, it is possible that the use of 5-MeO-DMT could trigger a seizure in someone who is already prone to seizures or has a history of epilepsy. It is also possible that the use of 5-MeO-DMT could worsen the symptoms of epilepsy in someone who is already experiencing seizures. Q: “However, it is possible that the use of 5-MeO-DMT could trigger a seizure in someone who is already prone to seizures or has a history of epilepsy.” Why is that? A: There is limited scientific research on the effects of 5-MeO-DMT on the brain, so it is not fully understood why the use of this substance might trigger seizures in some people. However, it is known that 5-MeO-DMT can cause a range of effects on the central nervous system, including changes in brain activity and altered consciousness. These effects may be more pronounced in people who are already prone to seizures or have a history of epilepsy, as they may be more sensitive to changes in brain activity. It is also worth noting that the use of 5-MeO-DMT and other psychedelic substances has been associated with an increased risk of developing acute psychosis, which can manifest as seizures or other abnormal behavior. This risk may be increased in people who have a pre-existing susceptibility to psychosis or who have a family history of psychotic disorders.
  14. Tulsi Gabbard, who was previously allied with Bernie Sanders and identified as progressive, is now a contributor on Fox News, working with Tucker Carlson, who has extreme far right views. How could someone shift their political beliefs so dramatically in such a short time?
  15. @Kuba Powiertowski War occurs because humans have the ability to hold their own opinions and strong beliefs, and are willing to fight in order to implement them. Other species do not have the same level of desire as humans, the drive that causes them to leave home and face death in battle.
  16. Do you have any evidence for that?
  17. Most of that change happened during my teenage years. And yes, people like us who are interested in personal development do change, but most people don't.
  18. @IAmReallyImportant Did you study it? Have you watched Leo's videos on Blue, Orange, or Green, and read books like The Religion of Tomorrow by Ken Wilber and Spiral Dynamics by Don Beck?
  19. It’s a beautiful song, but not necessarily the ‘highest truth’.
  20. @lxlichael I stand by my words..
  21. People don’t change. Never.
  22. @StarStruck All of reality is mind. That's it. Notice that nothing exists outside your imagination of reality.
  23. @r0ckyreed Your mistake is trying to make science relevant everywhere. Science is very important in deducing third-person reality, but it has no business (nor should it) in first-person spirituality. Let science be science and spirituality be spirituality.
  24. @IAmReallyImportant Do you understand spiral dynamics.
