  1. Alan Watts chillstep is where it's at. Check this out: Edit: didn't mean to link to mid video. Also, this channel has hours of different lectures amidst relaxing chill music that's great to listen to before bed peace
  2. Hey guys, I've been doing some emotional work (Letting Go by David Hawkins) and I can't get past feeling sad for others. I seem to be able to let go of my own emotions, but not the emotions I project on to others. For instance, if I died my family would be distraught. The idea of them being sad makes me sad. I then worry about death because I don't want them to be sad. I don't know how to get past this. I am fully aware that I cannot know what another person is feeling or what they might feel in the future and that I am superimposing imagination on to the situation. Any advice on how to let go of this? Best wishes, B3N
  3. No - makes dropping a fat deuce easier.
  4. Hey I'm going into my final year of a bachelor's psychology degree in the UK. 1. I'm not going to lie, there is a lot of irrelevant information (I think we covered the menopause of elephants at one point). We have been forced to do a lot of statistics (mathematical equations etc.). Maslow's hierarchy of needs has appeared, which was refreshing. We were given module options for the third year, one of which is named 'positive psychology' and allegedly covers topics such as mindfulness. However, the majority of stuff mentioned here on actualized.org doesn't appear to be too mainstream as of yet. They are operating out of a 100% materialist paradigm and don't really allow you to challenge that (in essays etc.) At least that has been my experience. That isn't to say we havent covered interesting topics, just rarely those that we discuss here. 2. No. I've had ridiculous amounts of spare time. It all depends on how you study. My lecturers essentially repeat verbatim what the text books say, over the course of two hour stints. This learning can easily be done at home direct from the text books in less than 20 minutes. 3. Crowd behavior. How people conform in various social situations. The development of the mind from birth to old age. Bits of Freud. A pinch of Maslow. The phases of sleep and their corresponding brain waves. I'd advise you to look up the specific topics your course covers to get a better idea as to whether or not you'd enjoy it 4. I went in wanting to become a licensed clinical psychologist. Doing the course has made me realise that this is no longer the case. So in a way yes, and in another way no. Although, I have met some good people. The non academic side of things has been pretty good. I hope some of that waffle helps. I'm not trying to put you off. I've never liked formal education. I prefer the autodidactic approach, so may not be the best person to answer your question. Nevertheless, good luck
