  1. Some people are better off since they had a head start, and have glimpsed the upper stages(I myself was born in a greenish family, with money taken care of, in a blue country), but I find that like @blueberries said, we don't necessarily embody the lower stages. I myself feel the need to take advantage and embody ,burn out the karma of the stage blue-orange paradigms/values(hardwork money issues especially) hopefully in a healthy way, by living in a majority blue country. My sister decided to straight live in a green country after childhood but imo she's still repressing a lot and have got a lot of repressed lower stage spiral dynamic negative values, expressed in different areas of life. Both skipping and embodying have valid paths, and it depends of the individual and its SD society to some extent, for the average actualizing human. What's interesting about SD, is that were a mix of every color, and society is as well, and even though it's not as direct and pyramidal as Maslow's pyramid, we can choose more to integrate which values and fit according to our environment
  2. Good post! Since my mind is already clearer, and often inself-enquiry mode... I like to write and contemplate important questions(like Leo's video), or practice gratitude awareness especially during the morning Otherwise i find for me it can be useful to do some yoga/light body exercice as well to really feel into the body before becoming unaware, which I tend to do during my night meditation.
  3. https://maps.org/resources/students/181-so-you-want-to-be-a-psychedelic-researcher Hey, I think this article could give you some insights on the challenges of becoming a psychadelics researcher, and the importance of correcting the stigma of psychadelics, as well as becoming an activist in it per se... I'm questioning similar life purpose paths myself but more on the medical side as I'm interested in neurology/psychiatry as well as research(still a med student tho).
  4. Good point. Search function for blog posts too may be beneficial as I sometimes skip posts 😅
  5. I love the long video format, but as Leo says in the blog post, it is true that it is counter intuitive, even tho time is short. I often feel the need to use the 1.5x speed for the topics that feel more abstract to me, and slow down where it most reflects my life. I don't think it's a matter of length, you just have to get the big picture, with focus on the details that matter to you ATM.
  6. Interesting point. Language is a good first step imo, because without Leo telling us via his language,most of us here wouldn't want to seek Truth. What website were you referring to that shows language reflecting enlightenment in the Bible btw?
  7. Hey @Identity, love your insights & mix of phases with the spiral stages, as I've definitely felt some ressemblances from what I hear from your story. I'm a student too, and like you after shallow orange relationships, I feel am at the stage green limbo/starting phase as I'm really starting to connect with one girl, but still hesitating to start it off as it's going to be LDR/ still want to discover my feminine side, hang with more feminine girls.Would love to know your future progress with the couple of women that you're connecting with! May the growth be with us
  8. @Leo Gura is this app integrated with Audible?
  9. Putting my hand on my stomach while breathing works great for me! Just stick to one thing and continue concentrating.
  10. Happy be day Leo! Life is short but i'm so grateful to know a "hero/mentor " like you that helps keep people on track their self-actualizing journey... PS dont forget to meditate, self enquiry, self actualize even on your bday 😁

At the same time I discovered nofap. But after a while, I had emotional issues and used PD as a tool to master my emotions, thus developing a journal and meditation habit. I decided to return back to my origin country Indonesia where I got interested in its psychologycal cultural, psychological background : did psychadelic(mushroom), meditation retreat. I relate very much to the kid in Leo's "advice for college student", and am eager to grow exponentially Just discovered the forum couple of months ago, and am so grateful of Leo and this community!
