  1. What can I say, I feel like I have the same mindset. It feels terrible when you try even unconsciously to live up to your persona thus sacrificing your own happiness. It is funny because just 2 hours ago I watched this insane video which really hit me. It penetrated me soo deeply. Basically what it says is that base your worth not on the outside things. But on what you truly are, and above that be courageous. Even though you may look stupid, be yourself! Thats the quality which is definitely above fear. So there is the video. Hope it will touch your heart too

  3. @Shin Thanks for the recommendation Just a few chapters in, but already amazed by the wisdom of author. BTW as I am reading I notice that I am just at the beginning of the first stage, in your opinion should I get a gf? even though I don't have much to share, at this point in my journey it is pretty much only trials and errors. I am asking this because I am going on a date on Monday and cant stop thinking what am I able to give/share/talk with her. (ps. I am 20)
  4. Damn @Prabhaker thats deep. I love Osho's wisdom "... if you can learn one thing with me, than that one thing is to be alert, aware about your inner motives, about your own inner destiny. Never lose sight of it, otherwise you will be unhappy."
  5. Ask yourself how do i know that i exist? No, seriously. How do i know? When i go to sleep it feels like i do not exist and now i do. If you can become conscious of life that is running through you will instantly become more peaceful and super grateful. These conscious experience happens very rarely for me. Only when I am just after or during meditation some kind of a yoga or just heightened awareness. To know life just ask yourself existential questions and you will get there. For example: where do my thoughts occur? Or how to prove myself/others that I exist? (Note that you cannot prove it, you can just be life)
  6. So yesterday I was just contemplating life and similar things, as the minutes passed by and the more I tried to figure it out the more confused I was. At the end of my contemplation I was even angry in life, why I cannot know, but today I discovered this video and was totally amazed by the insight of Sadhguru on mind and confusion. If anyone else is very confused or even angry for that definitely check this video!!! (9:27- 10:50) " You can become life and know life, you can never figure life" After this video I was finally at peace with my confusion
  7. This is my one of the most favorite videos on the youtube!!! Every word every idea is so deep. Every time I watch it I hear something new, something more spiritual than the previous time. Give it a try
  8. Just some random old sketches I drew

  10. OFFTOPIC, WOW, I have just watched the video about the power of addiction by Gabor Mate, Thanks to you @JustinS after I watched the psychedelic science video, youtube recommended for me another video of Gabor Mate and it was beautiful, the whole video is very deep. I mean the man knows what he is saying, just watch it, amazing speech! Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66cYcSak6nE
  11. "Once it happened…Four men were walking in the forest. The first was a gnana yogi, the second was a bhakti yogi, the third was a karma yogi, and the fourth was a kriya yogi. Usually, these four people can never be together. The gnana yogi has total disdain for every other type of yoga. His is the yoga of the intellect, and typically, an intellectual has complete disdain for everybody else, particularly these devotional types who look upward and chant God’s name all the time. They look like a bunch of idiots to him. But a bhakti yogi, a devotee, thinks all this gnana, karma, and kriya yoga is a waste of time. He pities the others who don’t see that all you need to do is know that God exists, hold his hand, and walk in trust. All this mind-splitting philosophy, this bone-bending yoga is absurd to him. Then there is the karma yogi, the man of action. He thinks all the other types are just plain lazy. Their lives are pure self-indulgence. But the kriya yogi is the most disdainful of all. He laughs at everyone. Don’t they know that existence is just energy? If you don’t transform your energy, whether you long for God or for anything else, nothing is going to happen! There can be no transformation. These four people customarily cannot get along. But today they happened to be walking together in the forest. Suddenly, a storm broke out. It grew fierce. The rain started pouring down relentlessly. Drenched to the skin, the four yogis started running, looking desperately for shelter. The bhakti yogi, the devotion man, said, “There’s an ancient temple in this direction. Let’s go there.” (As a devotee, he was particularly familiar with the geography of temples.) They ran in that direction. They came to an ancient temple; all the walls had crumbled long ago; just the roof and four columns remained. They rushed into the temple—not out of any love for God, but just to escape the rain. they moved closer and closer. Finally, there was no alternative. They just sat down and embraced the idol. The moment these four people hugged the idol, suddenly God appeared. In all their minds the same question arose: why now ? They wondered, “We expounded so many subtle and arcane philosophies, worshipped at every possible sacred shrine, great and small, selflessly served so many people, did so much body-breaking penance, but you never showed up. Now when we’re just escaping the rain, you turn up. Why?” God said, “At last you four idiots got together.”" This is a quote from the book of "Inner Engineering" by Sadhguru. This story might be irrelevant but what I wanted to say is that, he is talking about 4 ways of attaining enlightenment and reaching the ultimate. I don't know, it might be true that there are only two ways: through mind or heart. Either way it is interesting that there is no 'only path' everyone has his/her own unique journey. By the way if you are interested in the bhati yoga I would definitelly reccomend reading a book "Miracle of Love" by Rom Dass. Great stories about amazing saint Maharaji, give it a try.
  12. @Dan Arnautu I totally resonate with you as I had almost the same experience as you. Just one note: I would recommend for you the book 'inner engineering', it is a great book about spirituality and just basic stuff. What is really intelligent on his part is that after the 1 chapter Sadhguru writes: "... and now Yoga", he did it on purpose. Because only when you ground yourself and become decently actualized it is time for one to do spiritual work.
