  1. @Truth Addict What if Evolution is both linear and non-linear? Apply the Paradox of Order and Chaos to Evolution as well.
  2. You have a lot of Enthusiasm. That's good. It's one of your strengths.
  3. It's a thought/visualization in the Cognitive Body.
  4. The environment that you're in affects your whole life. You're stewing in your environment soaking all of it in. One of the best and easiest things you can do in your personal/ interpersonal development work is to optimize your setting (change where you live). I wouldn't discount this. Setting is huge. Every city that I've traveled to had a kind of controlling theme or vibe that will program you if you stay there long enough. So, you wanna be conscious of that programming and consciously choose/change your environment (where you live).
  5. This is a good post. I guess it depends on what your objectives are in life. But if you're an explorer who likes to reside at the very tip of Evolution, this is where things are headed.
  6. I think you have a opinion that might be closing you down to possibilities that are good. See, this is why you gotta factor in Evolution and be at the tip of that. Evolution means that you are comfortable with change, novelty, innovation, exploration, etc.
  7. Start a blog.
  8. You could take experience to be the Actual too. This is why Metaphysics breaks down regarding attempts to capture Being like a butterfly in a net. What is that which takes? Is it not the Mind?
  9. You need a strategy to move yourself up the Emotional Scale -- this is part of what we might call Emotional Mastery Work. Look at where revenge is on the scale. Don't feel bad if you're not good at Emotional Mastery work. We can put together systems and strategies to get much better at this skill than we are. This is mastering the skill of "Forcing Your Mood". Leo talks about this in his Blueprint* (see link below). *Leo's Blueprint
  10. I say build both. I'm just trying to note the limiting-belief in our collective consciousness/unconsciousness that online community building doesn't count as social activity. Sure it does! Huge social activity. I'm talking with people online all day long. And I also want to have some real relationships in my life too. You can do both, see. We can walk and chew gum at the same time. It's not one to the exclusion of the other -- we can and most of us probably should do both. Don't feel ashamed of your online relationship connections, they're a bonafide part of your social life and your social activity. Own it! Video on point to watch:
  11. Leave Shinzen Young alone. He is fortunate to be one person among us to be able to give something back to the world. Be tactful. You take shots at people so easily. Reverse that. Try to avoid taking shots at people: Err on that side. That's a good single-principle strategy point that you can work with for increasing your social maturity. This is Interpersonal Development work. You gotta mediate that sharp edge. Videos on point to watch:
