  1. @StardewValley You are failing to see that you are NOT supposed to be in pain. Just because most of people experience pain, not fall into ''I am supposed to''. No, there is no supposed to look or feel anything during meditation. Just go with it. If you are experiencing bliss or balance (back pain + bliss elsewhere) I would suggest to keep the going, observing the pain - bliss sensation, and Keep going and going and going to start seeing the 'bottom' of it.
  2. @abrakamowse the question is not if Brahma is nature. What I am curious to know is why Leo dosen't mention the art of contemplating nature, the wisdom of nature. Sure he talks about being ecological conscious but that's it 🤔
  3. OMG Dinner with Leo My reality is breaking down. My mind major desire in the past years might become true very soon There we have a meet and greet, workshop followed by dinner, then enhance our practices with the one and only, exclusive, finite but infinite LEO. Tell me the schedule and I am packing
  4. @EmptinessDncing My favorite one is When the Impossible Happens wonderful work of over 50 years of research and self-exploration is reported on this book and 2# The adventure of self discovery If you read let me know your thoughts about it =) I am a big fan of his work and started joining the Holotrophic breathwork workshop after reading his books =)
  5. Wonderful post @MsNobody I have been receiving the wisdom of Nature (Earth itself, Gaia) and wonder myself why Leo hasnt talked on his last video (65 Core Principles Of Living The Good Life) the importance to 'tap in' into deeper levels of interconnectedness that nature can give to humankind. During my last mushroom trip I Integrated the male and female energy by being the subject of the Sun and the Moon, the dark and light, the yin and yang, the warm and the cold simultaneously.
  6. @Hello from Russia Hey! My personal experience is that once you go through what is the emotionally difficult you get out of your comfort zone and YES, it allows you to move towards a better version of yourself. Stop TRYING. Allow the emotions to fully go through you. It takes practice. Orange stage is all about suppressing our emotions, so it will be helpful to simply experience what is emotionally difficult... keep going, you might go full circle and perhaps (maybe within a few years) get to a 'break point'. It is a process. I watched this video a while ago and started applying it in my life and it has put my mind - ideas - beliefs- comfort upside down (so to speak) and its allowing me to keep growing in a personal and spiritual level =)
  7. 1) What was your age when you began meditating? 25. 2) What were your top 3 original motivations for beginning this practice? 1. Be more grounded and balanced Clear the thoughts running on my mind 3) What are your top 3 current motivations for continuing this practice? Keep growing on the spiritual path
  8. @Hero in progress thanks for this
  9. @Annetta you are not in trouble Its a fine quote to me and I felt like sharing if it isn't applicable we can just ignore it
  10. "People have their prejudices, their ideas. Rather than seeing into reality, rather than looking into an enlightened man, they come ready with so many concepts, and unless he fits them he is not enlightened. And let me tell you, no enlightened person is going to fit with your unenlightened prejudices; it is impossible." Osho
  11. @Shanmugam Would you know names of rishis that was known to be in the 6th - 7th bhumika? 🤔
  12. Hey there @nexusoflife , I can certainly relate to you very well. I am unsure if I can give any valid advice, but I will tell you some of what I went through. As I seriously walk on this path of true self realization, I am less and less attached to the external world. I realized that hanging out is no longer interesting to me, as I also rather spend my free time meditating or reading. Initially, it was difficult to tell people about this "new me" that no longer seeks doing this or that. Also, at some point, it was awfully hard to be around highly asleep people. I was ready in a sense to give up everything to go to meditate in a cave for the rest of my life. Why didn't I ? Well, with a little help, I realized I don't need to shut down the whole world as I wished to do so. I can practite mindfulness around people and it became a fun practite to watch how others interact, worry and look for drama. I also did learn that is ok to put up a mask to be around people, especially at work. The Dizzy they see and interact is not the "real Dizzy". And that's fine too. Like I don't need to preach anything I learned on my spiritual path to anyone around me or tell my co-workers all the mystical experiences I had last night. I am learning to allow people to be as they are. Ok, mostly everyone I know seems to have a miserable life and at first was hard to see them suffering and be quiet about it. The more I told them my true about this path, more closed minded people became. Then I realized there is nothing I can do for them. I can only allow them to be themselves, even if they emotionally are just hurting themselves. I can not preach, teach or try to change their perspective of the world. I may be able to do so if one has interest on listening or may be looking for a change, but if not, nevermind then. I learned that the best way to interact is to listen, and while listening I am aware of my own judgments. Doing so, it was easy to keep looking deeply into the situation and layer by layer removing the barriers that separates us. The only barrier is really what the mind creates. I also became distant from my family, boyfriend and dearly old friends, although it dosent mean I don't love them anymore (as some claim that's what happened) but much to the opposite. As I became more aware of our true nature, I found myself in love with all. They just can't see it 🤔 Adyashanti said " Make no mistake about it – enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true." So yeah, during the process of awakening our identifications will be declining, I suppose it's common to experience a release of many or all attachments of the mind. And that has nothing to do with non love towards family members. I guess we won't find people to talk about psychedelics trips for spiritual growth or Akashic records in ordinary work or school, so yeah, I also don't have anyone around me that I can talk to, so this forum came very handy to me I am forever grateful for many people here that helped me greatly. I guess you can meet up like minded people on retreats, workshops or even Buddha-like stores/ coffee shops. I never tried lol I find too difficult and I am completely fine having online friends that I can deeply relate to and talk like I am talking to my oldest best friend. Not sure if that's any helpful to you, but thought I could share it. Trust your path! You seem to be doing great progress and eventually you will know how to live to your highest values. Rumi said " what you seek is seeking you". Slowly but surely you will know. There is no hurry to figure this all out. You are only 20 and seem uncommonly wise for your age, so yeah, keep doing your practices and clarity will come Being minimalist is one of the greatest aspects of my days now You said you are going to college, is your major related to what you realized you want now ? If not, well, you know what to do...😁
  13. @Loreena Did you feel good while having this trip. What was your emotional state ? I can not say I felt good. Good didn't really exist or made sense during most of the trip. Emotions were gone too. Just at the very start I laughed when I looked at the window and the ocean was there but at same time it wasnt. It was there as the ocean, but it was clear the ocean was also me. There was nothing to separate me from the ocean, and I laughed because I looked to the window and saw the ocean everyday, but now I looked and didn't see the "same " ocean as before. After that, all the emotions were gone. You said you felt everything was, your hand was you, you were the water, and you said you had no emotions, wouldn't that feel very passive or robotic like dead. How is that feeling beautiful ? If you had no emotions, it means you neither felt good nor bad, just like a statue. Mundane and unaffected. Yes. Pretty much it, neither good or bad. At some point I could not say that the experience was beautiful, having no emotions and no identity, was intense. Yet, intense was not bad, or good. How helpful was such an experience in real life as you were coming out of the trip ? Very very helpful Shortly after the trip and the next few days I was still in a deep state of no identication with my mind, thought, personality, or emotions. Emotions still came up, and as I noticed them, they would go away pretty quick. And it was no longer intense, it was a sense of liberation on what I seemed to be stuck. So the good part came after the trip. A lot of my fears has been washed away. The night after the mushroom trip I dreamed of seeing a lot of snakes. I was just looking at the them. My whole life I was scared to death of snakes and would wake up in a state of deep fear when dreaming of snakes, but that night, I woke up in peace regardless of the snakes on my dream. Also, this last trip has helped me to clearly see that what creates the duality is my mind, and any minute I go to separation I ask "what is separating me from them?". The answer is clear: nothing! Then I can look deeply and find love. It's been wonderful to find love anywhere I go. Of course, I still experience negative emotions, but my awareness has increased deeply since this trip. My meditation practice also has been deeper and deeper since then. It's like a " Zero Experience" or "No Experience," right? ...How is that a good experience. It's like you are temporarily cut off from life. Yes. A good way to describe is that I felt neither alive or dead. And as I had no identification with nothing, I could just be existence, or life itself.
