  1. I get acid reflux sometimes and I recently found that it was because I held the tension of anxiety in my stomach region. Once I relaxed that region, it went away. Not sure if it'll work for you but see if you are doing something similar... https://bridgesofunity.com/acid-reflux-the-meridians-and-healing-associated-life-issues/
  2. @Leo Gura tagging you in case you missed it, I won't tag you again here
  3. Yes I did just now. The only thing he says that is related to projection in my question is "When I'm getting into the personal life of the teacher then I'm projecting". However I'm not wanting to know Leo's personal life to judge him, I just want to know to know. I just want to know what his everyday life is like. What I think Leo does is that he meditates, takes psychedelics, reads books, take notes, shoots video, etc. But that is my imagination. The purpose of this question is to actually know the facts. I have no idea what the problem with this is and if there is I'd be glad if you could point it out.
  4. Maybe. Sure, but I just want some ideas to try. The purpose of my question was to get a perspective of what Leo's life is. I don't know what made you think that this is a projection. Sure I have a rough mental image of who Leo is, but that's open to change and I don't think I'm making any judgments based on my mental image.
  5. Depends on the day. Mostly these days I have some goal in mind and based on that I do the work. If I have a clear goal in mind I'm mostly working on it all the time taking breaks in between. There are periods where I don't have a clearly defined goal (either because I've accomplished my previous goal or suddenly there is a lot of uncertainty or too much change or I have to divert my attention to something else), then I just waste a lot of time on distractions and then after wasting time I sit down and think about what to do and maybe in a few days I formulate my goals and then start working on them again. That pretty much sums up my typical day. I have stopped meditating as I felt it become forced and it wasn't of good quality. I had other goals in mind and I couldn't give my focus to consciousness work, it kind of became unconscious work and I thought well fuck it I'll at least use that time on something else. But now I feel like I want to resume it. I've stopped reading books too as I think I have enough theoretical base for now and I'll start reading again when I have a natural desire to read. I'm not sure if I understand what you mean....
  6. @Leo Gura If these questions are too personal and you don't want to answer, I understand. 1. What is your typical day like? What do you do everyday? I wish to know this because the more I contemplate, the more it is becoming clear that what I should be doing is self-actualization full time. But I wonder if it'll become boring to just meditate and read books all day long. I don't feel alive following a routine. So what is it that you actually do everyday? Do you ever feel that meditation is just boring, if yes, then what do you do? Is there anything else apart from self-actualization that you do just to break the monotony ? (or maybe you don't feel it to be monotonous?) I wish I knew more about who you are as a person. The videos are great, the concepts are great, what you do is great, but I wish to know who you are in your everyday life. I feel that'll help me to see how exactly you are putting the theory into practice. I don't know if that makes sense to you or you'd like to do that, but it'd be cool if you could share more of your personal life. When I hear some concept in theory I don't know how much value it has as long as I don't see it or try it on my own. For example, I didn't really value doing "the grind work" for a long time. I've of course heard it in theory, even in your own video - how to get shit done (which is a nice video covering the big picture of productivity). I did try to do it. But what really shifted the gears in me into highly valuing it was I think following John Sonmez. His highest value is probably grind work, I don't know, but everyday he posts on instagram how he is doing the grind work despite not feeling like it. He is actually doing it by choice and not because he is in a life situation where he has to do it to survive. That is what really inspired me to value grind work as well. Maybe that's not your style of teaching, but its just a suggestion. 2. How did you start getting into the self help business? I mean, when and how did you know that you actually have something unique of value to contribute and then what was your first step?

  13. I'm back again! What happened was I wasn't motivated to do the stuff that I wanted to do and I wasn't sure if this is what I really wanted to do. What I've realized is that doing what I planned to do earlier ensures the best possible outcome from my knowledge. I've identified two feelings: The feeling of doubt of whether I'm doing the right thing. The feeling of laziness - its like I really want to do something but I'm just lazy to do it. I think contemplating on the first kind is a good thing. Whether that doubt was right or wrong, it can bring things into proper perspective and that is why even though I've not been much productive for the past two weeks, I've gained a slightly better perspective and so I don't feel like those days have been wasted. But the second kind is mostly a temporary feeling. I've found some ways to counter that: To start doing it just a little bit. Starting to do is usually the hard part, so if I ask myself to do it just a little bit, I may find that I can actually keep doing it. Find / Reconnect with what used to make me joyful doing that thing. Its always easier to do something when its done as an end in itself and not as a means to an end. I've found that how I start the day is crucial. If I start the day participating in mind-numbing activities, I tend to want that for the rest of the day. I've found listening to some specific songs/music puts me in an equanimous state of mind. So I'm spending some time listening to them at the beginning of my day. Now that I have a feeling that what I'm doing is the right thing and I've managed to reconnect with the joy of doing what I'm doing, I think I now capable of doing more. Also I feel better keeping my goals more general and deciding on the specifics just before actually doing it. My goals for today: Placement preparation Study Isha Kriya 3 x 10 minutes concentration meditation Mindfulness with labeling - 20 minutes
