  1. I find the DO-NOTHING difficult to do at the end of the day. I lean towards Netflix junk, xbox or alcohol. Did it take timefor you to cultivate this habbit ?
  2. @Ether Can you explain the sleep less part ? Latest sicence recommends 8 hours of sleep ?
  3. When I am tired in the evening, I can no longer take new information (like reading a book) nor can meditate / do nothing technique ? How can I relax and unwind without watching television or consuming alcohol ? Can you realte to this and have ideas for me ?
  4. Is there a precise list of all LABELS ? And a flow-chart apprach to labelling ? If not can we please create one by having a discussion : Basing on internet article, let me start and we can improve from there. Idenitfy if its Physical, Useful or Not-Useful thought. Examine Physical and Not-Useful and discard them once dealt with. If Useful then further clasify it as : judgment planning fear remembering thinking / processing / idea (Can you all help comment so far and improve from here)
  5. Thanks for your input eveyone. Below are summarised points for the question how to deal with insights during meditation so far : 1) If its really that important it will come back. Just trust . 2) If you remember the feeling you can later collect the thought. 3) Realise you are meditating not for insights BUT for conciousness. Observe the insight like a thought and sacrifice it by @Torkys (My Favourite answer so far) 4) Break meditation and right them down (I donot think Gura does this though). Does anyone have bettter than point#3 above , agree / disaree with it ?
  6. Sorry all for reopening this thread but I'd like to be clear on this. I'll also press this @Leo Gura bell in case he has a way to remember insights early in his meditation. Problem : Meditation is observing and letting go thoughts. Sometimes I get wonderful ideas or insights but I still have 40 more mins of meditation. If I let go of them, they seem to have permanently lost and I cant recollect them. Should we attempt to remember such ideas or thoughts and is there a technique ? If so , isnt that counter-intutive to meditation. Suggested Answers so far : 1) If its really that important it will come back. Just trust . I say : They dont.I sometimes have multiple insights. 2) If you remember the feeling you can later collect the thought. I say : Again, I sometimes have multiple insights. Hard to track.
  7. I am in an intermediate meditator. I see " thoughts" (ideas, pictures and visions) at the junction of my eye-brows when meditating. The point where we see Budha wearing a dot. 1) Does anybody esle experience this ? 2) It is distracting to have the "thought" at this point above the nose, while we are focusing on the nostrils. Nostrils I find (and I think is also taught) as the best point to focus on. I am looking for similar experiences and thoughts on this, as such minute details needs to be clearer to reach advanced levels of meditation.
  8. I figured out that this is the last missing part and Leo has a video already. My thread may be closed
  9. Many people here wanted to be healthy, wake up early, work hard, not watch porn, not eat junk, read a book a week etc. But after 100's of attempts and new resolutions every month, and after all these years they are still in the same place they are or perhaps seen slight improvement. Their struggles to be healthy, productive, focused still exist despite reading all self-help books and listening to all Leo's videos. They have several attempts too and its not procrastination. But SOMETHING else is causing them to be indisciplined and not improving at the pace the want to be. What is that final lesson in self-help thats missing which could forever keep us on track of focus and progress ?
  10. I am in Canberra but any meet up in Australia would be great!
  11. Life has no meaning or purpose. We give it a meaning or purpose so we can achieve high consciousness living. You pick a LP so that you can go on a Heroe's journey and avoid doing low consciousness things like watching TV. The world is fine without you, its beneficial for you to have a LP but there is no grand design forcing you to have one or preventing you from relaxing. If you achieve your LP, you will then realize its about the journey and what your achieve /dont achieve doesnt really matter.
  12. Hi @Rachityczny It took me 10 months BUT I was doing after time left from full-time work, family, and other things. It will be much sooner for you, may be 3 months if you keep that as your main focus. There is a lot of theory and it's important you understand the theory well , so may be it's not worth doing more than 1 or 2 videos per day. You will want to replay in your mind so you got it. I think that's 40 hours, 1 month. Then the exercises take much longer and you want to be generous. That's may be 40-80 hours, 1 , 1.5 months. The final content might take 20-40 hours up to a month. Some times you need more time to think things through. I did not account for any book recommendations as they are additional recommendations. I paused a lot to think and took detailed notes. So give it a generous 200 hours spreading over 3 months.
  13. @Leo Gura I completed the Life Purpose course and it's excellent! I read books on this before but your course is amazing. The proof-reading, order, clarity and other details are done very professionally I listened to every line, wrote down all your notes and done all exercises. Around 100 -200 pages! So hoping to be in the 5% student stat you mentioned early in the course and took 10 months. I am unable to however, tie the final things together or finalize ME sheet and appreciate your input. I am 35-year-old Software Engineer specializing in databases. I have family/ job /responsibilities. 1) I have chosen my Mastery as : "Building Business. Product Identification & Development. Assembling Excellent Teams. Selling". This is basing on your input to be practical but do not know what else I should base it from the course. 2) My one-line LP is this "Understand the Subconscious and and help people overcome deep implanted traumas". This is based on your exercises from the course. 3) My 3 Zone of genius are Critcal-thinking, Love of Learning, and Creativity. My 3 values are Excellence, clarity and Self-Discovery. It seems my LP is to develop a business based on Software or Technology to heal the subconscious. But this first needs a significant understanding of the brain, perhaps 10 years of study/research. It doesn't then sit well with my Mastery in Entrepreneurship. How could I make these fit ? Should I consider 2 "journeys" of mastering entrepreneurship first and then go for a PHD in Neuroscience? It seems pragmatic and convenient to choose Entrepreneurship as Mastery but how do I know if I got this correct? Do you want me to do as specific exercise again to get this right? My favorite Medium is Public speaking and that's hard to fit in here too.
