  1. @brugluiz I would advise reading So Good They Can't Ignore You. The author says that passion is something that comes later after the hard work, i.e. you work to become so good they cant ignore you which makes you passionate about that area. He says to avoid trying to 'find' your 'passion', as though you have some special one thing that just needs to be discovered and then you're sorted for life. It doesn't work like that. You basically have to find something that you're interested in, or that you actually want to do, and then work at building the skills and knowledge within that area. What do you want?? So you create the passion, it's not found somewhere. You create the life that you want. It's completely and totally up to you. Which is why most people fail at finding their life purpose. It's not something you find, it's something you create. Then after a fairly long period of time you start to develop a passion for that area, because you see the fruits of your effort. The important thing is to not expect passion to be their right at the beginning, nor constantly throughout. You have to recognise that a lot of the time the work will not be fun. But obviously, in order to be able to motivate yourself to do work that is not fun, what you choose to spend your time doing shouldn't just be some random idea. It should be meaningful for you and have the potential to help others or to make an impact. It should be intentionally chosen to move you closer to your vision or goals. When you're thinking about what you want to do, come up with some ideas and then think about what those ideas would actually look like in reality. What you be doing on a daily basis? What kinds of grindy things might you have to do? How many hours would you have to spend doing that? How long would you have to spend learning a particular skill? What might you have to sacrifice? Don't just create some lofty future image of yourself being an artist or a teacher, for example. Think about what it would actually look like and then ask yourself whether you would be willing to do that?
  2. @Peter Zemskov It's quite common. A lot of people report similar experiences. Generally the movements are a good sign and should be allowed and accepted as best you can. Obviously if it becomes dangerous you probably want to stop or atleast be cautious. I don't know exactly what causes the movements, but I assume it's kundalini or some type of energy flowing through the body which can then manifest as physical movements or as emotional purges (emotion = energy in motion). There is a huge amount of information about this type of thing online already. Go research!
  3. @Azrael If you ever visit London, i'd love to meet and hang out! Always loved reading your forum posts
  4. @Eonn If it's your first time taking mushrooms you might want to just relax into the experience and not worry too much about actively contemplating your personal issues. But it's up to you of course. It also depends on how intense the trip is, and how capable you are of having normal thoughts during the trip. The experience can vary quite considerably from person to person and trip to trip. My advice would be just to focus on letting go and allowing whatever happens to happen. My second shroom trip I did just this, and I had a huge emotional release without contemplating or trying to do anything particular. It just happened. I cried like a baby for like 3 hours straight. That was some deep emotional healing.
  5. @eskwire I thought the post you wrote about your ankle was really interesting! I wish I had commented now. It showed you have a lot of self-awareness, which is rare. Don't let the comments of a few people dictate how you feel. Leo and other people on this forum can be quite critical and sometimes a bit too insensitive. That's just the way it is, and sometimes it's needed, other times not so much. So try not to take it too personally. There's a lot of value in what Leo teaches, but of course, as you said, a balance is definitely needed particularly for women.
  6. I love this interview. Such a profound discussion in an innocently ‘normal’ english pub. I believe this is only one of few interviews or videos of Maitreya Ishwara. Unfortunately he died in 2012. He mentions how Enlightenment is the final stage of evolution, and how ultimately we will all end up merging with God and Light. Not necessarily in these bodies, but in future lifetimes. They also talk about lots of other aspects of enlightemnet. Notice the deep silence and stillness in his eyes. Beautiful.
  7. @Arthur Snorting never worked for me. Plugging it was much more successfull. I haven't had a breakthrough trip yet though.
  8. Well then, there lies a potential solution. Chances are you're anaemic. If you're committed to the vegan thing, then go for it thats great. Maybe try supplementing. But if you're willing to include some good quality meat twice a week into your diet, there's a good chance your fatigue issues will go away. Atleast thats what i've found anyway. Not saying it's definitely the solution to your issues. But it could be.
  9. Nah I supplemented it.
  10. Are you vegan or vegetarian? I was vegan for around 2 years and I resolved all of my quite severe fatigue issues in a matter of days by reintroducing meat into my meals a couple times a week.
  11. @Alex bAlex You can start a journal in the 'Self-Actualization Journal' section.
  12. @Alex bAlex You gotta realise that this work is a life-long process, or atleast a decades long process. 1 year and 3 months is nothing really. It seems like you were trying to go too fast and do too much at once. Changing your lifestyle so radically and trying to change so many habits at once is bound to fail. Thats homeostasis for ya, you should know this if you keep up with Leo's content. Also realise that everyone backslides. It's part of the process. Don't see it as failure or an excuse to give up. I understand that this work is hard and gruelling at times, but don't fall into the trap of just playing victim. Everyone else has the exact same challenges. Stop complaining about your situation and DO something about it. So you need to start by getting the basics of life in place before working on other areas, in my opinion. Then you can start to tackle the other things you've listed, but in a slow, methodical and importantly strategic manner. You were not strategic about this process. Moving alone, for example, was clearly a bad choice for you at this point in your life. So think about what are the main things you need to sort out and fix right now. Write them out and prioritise the top 3 things. What are the things that will improve your life the most right now. And don't say enlightenment. Is it making new friends? Is it working on your communication and social skills? Is it quitting smoking? All of these things are big, and will require a lot time and attention. You probably can't be trying to change 10 other habits whilst trying to quit smoking, for example. So once you've figured out what your priorities are, then start working on that. I should also say, stop complaining about not having good social skills. Social skills are learnt! If you went out to a social event every day for the next month and spoke to 10 different people I guarantee you would not be thinking the same way. Social skills and communication can be learnt just like any other skill. And I bet you'll be surprised at how quickly you can get good at conversing with strangers if you just actively practise with a positive and optimistic mindset. Stop thinking that you're just going to be bad at socialising for the rest of your life. This is classic victim mindset. All it takes is a little bit of work and the courage to face your fears. And then a few months down the line you can start looking at other areas, like implementing an exercise habit (if thats what you want to do), or slowly changing your diet etc. With diet, make one or two changes at a time so you can counter the homeostasis that you will inevitably face. Life isn't all that bad. Pull yourself up with your bootstraps and get to work!
  13. I'm having difficulty clearly visualising the spinal breathing. Basically I visualise a small needle shaped object travelling up the spine and piercing all the chakras, but most of the time it's kinda patchy and vague with some areas like the top 3 chakras being much clearer. Any tips or recommendations? How clearly can you guys visualise the prana moving up the spine?
  14. Ask yourself, why would the body always being in your consciousness when you open your eyes be evidence for being such body? Ask yourself, why would the need to feed the body be evidence of you being it? Why would having the appearance of control over your body be evidence for being the body? These are just ideas that you have created. Literally. Try to 'get' that these things are just ideas and that they are not absolute facts written in stone.
  15. @Cortex Sounds like you're naturally spiritually inclined, which is pretty rare. Keep up the good work!
