  1. @Tiny Nietzsche Keep in mind there is no point to buy a 5000$ PC at this point unless you buying a server or a super expensive 4k widescreen monitor that costs 2000$ on its own. You can get the highest-end rig right now for 2000$ if not (1500$). So if you have such strong ich for a high-end computer give it 4 months and if you STILL want a high-end gaming PC, with the new hardware releases on august (approximately) you will get a great bang for your buck with 1000$. This way if somehow your gaming crave persists you can still satisfy it and have some money on the side for the more productive suggestion.
  2. And despite this for some reason, you throw every sport and craft under the bus as an "unconscious activity". Either everything is meaningless or not, decide. It seems really biased when you judge basketball players or MMA fighters. Imo mastery is beautiful no matter how "meaningful" that thing you master is.
  3. @Mongu9719 I once heard my favorite guru say: "If you think that what you don't know cannot exist, you are wearing the crown of ignorance" This work requires deep honesty. Your current worldviews and interpretation are just old belief systems, nothing is empirical. If you would be honest and empirical you could admit you just don't know. There could be a pill that gives you permanent enlightenment for all you know. You underestimate the depth of this work, and to be quite frank with you, all I see is an ego-mind defending itself. Without deep-honesty, curiosity and self-reflection you won't even get to levels that spirituality appears legit.
  4. @Mongu9719 Forget 5meo, psychs are not even mandatory. All paths are valid, I've done it with a combination. I know its hard and the mind wants to play it all smart and shit but really you are just spinning your wheels. I was literally in your shoes some years ago saying to Leo stuff like "spirituality is immoral" because such and such. It's just the ego-mind trying to stay the same, it's a self-deception that keeps you the same. Why do you even trust your mind? @Leo Gura Yesterday's video resonated so deep because most of the insights you mentioned I also had and I couldn't stop laughing. Also Leo after my last glimpse I could say my everyday suffering and thoughts reduced 95% without exaggeration but I wouldn't consider myself enlightened. The mind is perfectly clear and focused and everyday experience is microdose-like. How do you even quantify enlightenment? * Leo, go to a temple please, you may have ignored serious spiritual technology
  5. The materialist paradigm is so deep-rooted. We 've all been indoctrinated from birth to think that way and also glorified science as an authority without any skepticism. The looks I get from family and friends when I challenge the materialistic paradigm or talk about consciousness are hilarious. Or the funniest one: "that's just religious beliefs" It's so interesting that at their level of consciousness you cant contemplate anything and find the truth, truth is only hearsay from that POV. It takes LOTS of work to transcend it and to be frank the hardest part is emptying the cap.
  6. What can go wrong with the great carnivore diet?
  7. This is at odds with Sadhguru helping his wife achieve mahasamadhi.
  8. @Leo Gura At the end of the day, all these "illnesses" are literally fantasies/stories that people repeat to themselves (schizophrenia and psychosis aside). This was one of my first insights on psychedelics that showed me how the mind works and I won't replace it with any hearsay, id rather trust my experience.
  9. @Leo Gura If you can speak about enlightenment you can speak about all those topics with great clarity. LOL if a psychologist can treat such people just by reading texts and having 0 insight on reality, then metaphysical insight makes you qualified tenfold to speak on these topics. At the end of the day, all these "illnesses" are literally fantasies/stories that people repeat to themselves (schizophrenia and psychosis aside). Also, let's not forget that Shadow Work is a prerequisite of Spiritual Work and a really foundational topic that you need to address in-depth.
  10. This is an eye-opening video. This is happening in our self-help/guru industry and how completely scammy these financial gurus are. Their only goal is to close you and there is literally 0 interest what is your situation as long as you pay them. And all that with the fakery of tuxedos and all that jazz. It should ring a red flag since the first minute but when people are desperate to get out of wage slavery these guys are there to abuse it. This is a deep problem with both marketing and product quality. Their product is pretty much dogshit if not not-existant and their only focus is packaging. The only thing they do is focus on marketing and appearance and that's how they get you convinced to open your wallet with a facade of luxury and status. Also notice especially in Dan's case how similar the structure is to MLM. Pitch (product 1) -> upsell -> upsell -> I'll hire you to sell product 1 ^ this method is so disturbingly scammy and unethical I wonder how these people sleep at night but I guess that's survival for you. @Leo Gura You should also watch this video to see what these competitors of yours do in order to get more clients.
  11. @Leo Gura Lol it isn't even that advanced to almost have 0 monkey mind and be present the majority of the time...
  12. @Leo Gura I can but I don't consider myself enlightened.
  13. Be careful not to outsource something that is a skill and can only be cultivated. You can take steroids but you will not know weightlifting nor nutrition no matter how buff you get. Yoga gets you as deep as possible but for the westerners, we need drugs to get them on board
  14. Starting from 0 without any expertice do you go straight for Life Purpose or just a job to make ends meet? If it's a job, which jobs/businesses would you suggest to leverage the work we do here? Do you first work on your inner game (through spirituality) and then act out in the world or vise-versa? Should you drop out of college and if yes, what after? How do you find conscious likeminded people on the path and cultivate meaningful relationships? If the more conscious you get the more you recontextualize your priorities, isn't it ideal to work on your consciousness first? Who is in a better boat, an enlightened hippie living on the street or a completely unconscious multimillionaire CEO? Which are the most valuable characteristics you should develop early in life? Should you structure your day or just wing it? How would a structured day look like? Which are some common signs you are in a rut and how to get out of one?
