  1. @m0hsen There is nothing to know, because nothing is real.
  2. @GabeN Forget about ‘God’. That is just another idea. Right now, all your perceptions are all that exist. Anything that you’re not experiencing right now doesn’t exist. ‘Your current experience’ is what all of reality is.
  3. I don’t agree with many things Ben Shapiro says, but it’s hard to disagree with him about this. He is attacking the barbaric and medieval aspects of Islam, which is definitely quite welcome. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is also doing a good job in attacking and exposing orthodox Islam. For once Ben is up to something useful.
  4. In this video, George Bush discusses why it isn’t a good idea to leave Afghanistan. What do you guys think about this? Is Joe Biden right about the withdrawal of troops?
  5. @SQAAD This video has got enlightenment wrong. I’m sure Leo would agree with this. The future is imagination, it doesn’t exist.
  6. @Husseinisdoingfine Are you a Shia?
  7. I’m not sure what ‘digestion time’ and ‘poison’ have to do with each other. I once heard this from Sadhguru, totally absurd. Pizza is unhealthy because of the wheat, and other chemicals in there. That’s it.
  8. Many people have told me that I need to put a lid on something I’m microwaving, otherwise the radiation will somehow affect your food in a bad way. Is that true?
  9. @SuicidalBug It seems like you’re dealing with an emotional problem. Check out Leo’s booklist, specifically the emotional mastery section.
  10. @Windappreciator What has this got to do with meditation? Wrong section bro.
  11. @Avidya I can only guess, but he spends most of his time indoors, working on Actualized and taking psychedelics. It’s hard to meet someone if you’re always at home.
  12. @ndm678 You should read Nathaniel Branden. I’m sure his books will help.
  13. @Petals Imagine falling asleep whilst working. Notice that you will only realise that you fell asleep after you wake up! Before you wake up, you don’t know that you fell asleep. Similarly, the person who kills himself won’t really know that their suffering ended, because to realise that, you need to wake up first, which can’t happen anymore.
  14. People who commit suicide to attain enlightenment or escape suffering will never realise that it doesn’t work, because there is no experience after death, so you can’t experience the goal that you wanted. The person who kills himself to escape suffering will not experience peace after he dies, because there is no ‘him’ anymore. He doesn’t experience ‘the end of suffering’, so his suffering doesn’t really end.
  15. @Leo Gura My experience is that now is all there is. Therefore those statements were false. But I didn’t fully reject that video, because I believed (still do) that you have a higher state of consciousness than me, and that when I reach that state, I will see that what you said was true. I assume that there’s much I’m not conscious of, so I keep an open mind.
