  1. @MM1988 From the sound of things, you may have tight hamstrings. A good stretch for lengthening your hamstrings is called "Good Mornings". Try those for a few days without weight, and then see if you notice a difference. An advanced version would be doing it without any knee bend, but don't try to be too rigid on yourself. Let the body move how it wants.
  2. @Lynnel IFTTT (If this, then that) This app allows me to set alerts for myself at certain times of the day. For example, I have set up an alert at 1pm, a text, that i get from the app asking something along the lines of, "Am i optimizing my time?" Also, i have an alert at 9pm to "Do your night reflection". Its a very handy tool if you want to regulate yourself daily! Check out the To Do App called "MinimaList" - try it for a few days and see how you like it. You can also try Trello and EverNote.
  3. @bejapuskas If they want the best for you, then it's in your best interest to focus on your own growth. This way, you can act from a place of strength, while showing them what you have learned and how you have grown. Pretty much, having the confidence to set the standard and rising above where their (stage blue) values are at. They might not like it at first, but they will respect you if you respect yourself and really work hard at what you want to do.
  4. @Tony 845 Have you read the Kundalini book from the book list?
  5. Over the months/years you have been working on Personal Development, how has Self Reliance played a factor in your growth? Compare yourself now to who you were 1, 3, or 5 years ago. Do you feel more Self Reliant? (I hope so) What are you doing strategically to push your limits in terms of becoming autonomous? We all crave autonomy deep down, would you agree?
  6. @Gligorije Cal Newport coined the term "Attention Residue" when you check your phone and then switch to doing another task. Basically what happens is you mind is still pre-occupied with the first task and cannot focus deeply on what it in front of you. I highly recommend turning your phone off and putting it in your closet for anywhere from 40 minutes to 4 hours based on how "bad" your addiction is. Also check out Cal Newport on YT, his habit "Deep Work" is a must!
  7. @omTom I would start by actually improving your tone and range of sounds when talking to people. Places to practice could be when you are at the store or talking to someone for a brief moment. When your sentences are choppy and don't flow, you tend to have an emotion come up that is influencing your verbal communication, have you noticed this?
  8. You can't escape this work. Where ever you try to run, there you are! (Especially on a bad trip!) Its you, pretending to be you, talking to do, asking you about who you are. (Not sure if you get what i am trying to point at but i thought it would be worth a shot.)
  9. @Nexeternity <3
  10. @Peter Zemskov Sounds like your Kundalini energy is starting to wake up. Do you keep your body limber? Also, your spine health.. how is it?
  11. @Shiva Could you please refer to some resources about AI that you personally believe are valuable?
  12. @Your place at Heart Good points, I agree that his POV will definitely influence the way you interact and see the world, at least for a little while. I read his books years ago and I still have his ideas in the back of my mind. I feel that they fundamentally changed my world view when i read them, at an age where it was impactful (18).
  13. This is a little story that happened to me today that I would like to share relating to the Defending the Scientific Paradigm. Today, I had Biology class in University and the topic being discussed was Genetics. Mendelian Genetics, that is (Created by Gregor Mendel, the father of Genetics.) Anyways, as my Professor was going over Mendel's background and story, he mentioned that Mendel was a monk. My professor had a snarky laugh and said to the class jokingly, "Monks must have a lot of free time on their hands." The way he said it, was implying that monks were sitting around wasting their time. However this couldn't be the case, especially in Mendel's life. Why? Because one does not simply unravel a discipline like Genetics and cross breeding pea plants by sitting on their butt all day. Gregor Mendel must have had a intense curiosity and a deep fascination with Botany, to the point where he dedicated his life to it, thus being a monk as well... Anyways, my professor went on into a little rant about how scientists and religious people don't mix well. (He was referring to Monks now, in general) He went on to say that "religious people" have a hard time accepting facts, as well as seeing reality as it is... I found this quite ironic that he was bashing the religious persona considering that Gregor Mendel wasn't a quote on quote "Scientist" but actually a MONK! This made me think a bit deeper into the topic and during class i began to question, what about Mendel's worldly perspective at the time? What facts did he pull from the world? Especially since he was born in the 1820s in the Czech Republic? Perhaps his Monk lifestyle PROVIDED him with massive insights into how reality worked and not his rigid, logical, rational outlook on science as a whole? What do you think about this? Was my teacher right for saying what he did? Or was he trying to protect the Scientific Paradigm?
  14. I tried OMAD two days ago and it felt pretty good! Although I ate my meal right before bed, which wasn't a wise idea... especially because of how heavy the meal was. If you are healthy, I would definitely recommend it. Although I did drink lots of water and I had about 3 cups of tea that day... Was able to gym in the morning and workout in the evening without food. Felt surprisingly good to finish the day off with a 6.7 mile run while fasted
