  1. Hi all, I made a notion page to start classifying my trip reports, and shamanic breathing / meditation sessions according to the 10 ox hearding pictures. https://www.notion.so/1fed659adc1b42d595823f4b92a95181?v=2346bc54b9e64e729fabf95caa08ef22 You can look between the two views '10 ox herding pictures' and 'trip reports' whenever you have a report to make just duplicate the ox hearding picture it corresponds to, assign it a date, and it will automatically move into the 'trip report' view, here you can just open the card and enter your reports in the page, hope someone finds it cool/useful In before accusations of procrastinating over doing the actual work... I enjoy it so shoot me!
  2. @d i e g o Great, will put these suggestion in roadmap for next iteration. I don't suppose we could have a skype call after you've used the product for a week or so to get your initial thoughts? @Aeris If you are lucky enough to only use things conciously, then this app would not serve you at all. The idea is people use this, become concious of their app use and then maybe don't ever need it again! @d0ornokey Would be great to take a call with you after you've used it for a week to get any feedback you might have! @Girzo Great, if you tested be so interested to hear your thoughts, early user feedback is so vital for me right now @Everyday Again, a call would be brilliant to get your initial thoughts!
  3. Thanks so much for the feedback guys. I really appreciate it, I think we still have a couple of bugs to iron out but the feedback I've got through this and other forums has really motivated me to push this though. While I know some basic marketing, if there are any real app marketing wizzes on this Forum I'd love to work together! Can negotiate either a fee for your time or even some profit split / share options on the app!
  4. Hi, I took leo's course earlier this year, my purpose is to lead teams, creating products that simplify lives. Since that course I've got a new job as a Product Manager at a start-up I really believe in. I have also just created my first app, the idea is it stop unconcious app use, giving people power back over their smartphones. It works like this: 1. Install the Frition app (android only at the moment) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.goldfish.friction&hl=en 2. Select apps you want to use less (i.e instagram) 3. When you open these apps, rather than opening straight away, you will get a 7-second delay with the Friction screen, so you can make the choice of whether you really want to open the app, and it's not just a subconcious behavourial pattern If anyone downloads it now, it be forever free. Interested to hear any feedback! Cheers, Tom
  5. @CreamCatI did do a summary https://medium.com/@tomlittler/the-9-stages-of-ego-development-and-how-you-can-advance-through-them-18f1ecf919e5
  6. I am personally drawn because my ego loves knowledge, and to think it is at a 'higher level' than everyone else. Actualized provides a way for me to feel this way, as it's self help but at a much 'higher' level than that which my peers consume. Hopefully, this will change in the future, and I will start to embody the deeper teaching of non-duality, determinism etc. but at the moment, unfortunately, this is what appeals to me!
  7. Hi All, The link to the cook-greuter paper is down http://www.cook-greuter.com/Cook-Greuter 9 levels paper new 1.1'14 97p[1].pdf I wonder if anyone had the foresight to download it or save it, if so could you please upload it somewhere and provide a link! Thanks, Tom
  8. @Matt23, glad you liked it, I would agree with your comments on SD v CG, I see more similarities than differences, and there seems to be this individualist to integrated swapping and shifting as you move up. @Matt23 and @SerotoninluvRegarding the internet helping v hindering development, this is my own musings that I've noticed in friends, and myself. The internet basically has the ability to massively reinforce certain elements of each stage, for example at SD Orange - CG Expert, it is so easy to only use the medium of the internet to expose yourself to rational, individualistic, ambitious tendancies, and media platforms such as google, youtube and facebook are only going to serve to amplify this echo chamber. I.e if you follow garry vee on youtube, you are going to be suggested all other videos of this kind etc. I've written some more about the effects of technology on the human condition in some of my other articles, so you can check them out.
  9. Hi all, In Leo's videos he sometimes touches on the topic of the process that goes into creating actualzed content, including steps such as: - Compiling multiple sources - Deep inquiry - Direct experience -Note-taking an linking of ideas in a commonplace book I was wondering if it has been described on this forum or in a video or blog post what this process usually looks like in slightly more detailed steps. For example, I imagine it may look something like: - Weeks / years of reading - initial exploration into a topic - Hashing out first ideas in commonplace book, based on books read and 'original' ideas - Continue to refine ideas / thoughts over a number of weeks, - Compile some sort of script for a video - Film the video with pointers from the script. Even though the process may look slightly different for each video, I'm sure the general framework is similar, but the process I've outlined above may be way off the mark. The reason I'm asking is I'm starting to explore deeply topics around how technologies impact on the human condition, and am looking for advice on how to better improve my research and writing. Also if you have your own methods - please do share! Thanks, Tom
  10. Hi guys, Leo posted a great article on the 9 stages of ego development a few weeks ago, I thought it was great and wanted to try and cement my learning by summarising. If you are interested in reading a condensed version, have a look, if it piques your interest, make sure to read the full paper! https://medium.com/@tomlittler/the-9-stages-of-ego-development-and-how-you-can-advance-through-them-18f1ecf919e5
  11. Hi Guys, I'm obsessed with how technology has both the potential to rapidly move forward ego development (biggest case I wouldn't have found actualized.org without it, most likely would judt be sitting at the same stage as my family and peers) However, I'm also acutely aware that the way most people use technology and the internet is actually maybe making it harder to escape their own echo chambers and really advance. People's who's lives are so caught up in social acceptance via Instagram, and 'tribe' like culture will surely find it very difficult to evolve. I'm wondering what everyone here think technologies role in ego development is? Should it be viewed as an oppurtunity? A threat? Both? How do we best promote ego development in the connected world? Thanks, Tom
  12. great thread, I personally find techno music to be incredibly spiritual, really help connect me to myself
  13. @Wisebaxter cheers for this post mate. I’m literally in the exact same position. Been meditating religiously for 4 years now, done some long retreats on my own but my currently my position is the same as yours; things have recontextualised but no mystical experience. I have also been of the opinion that I didn’t want to ‘cheat’ with physcohdelics but have come to the conclusion that the combination of being a wage slave and the society we are living in is really not conducive to mystical experiences. ive just ordered some mushrooms and my plan is to take 0.5g (micro dose) and then work up in increments of 0.5g till I get a mystical insight. Seems to me like a fairly reliable method, but would be interested to hear other people’s thoughts on this. good luck with it all man and let me know how it goes!
  14. Of course he’s manipulating us, isn’t manipulating just altering someone’s viewpoint? You can be manipulated and still be conscious of it MLK was perhaps the biggest manipulator of all time If you speak or act, you manipulate. We are all manipulators. It’s just whether we do this in a positive way But everyone thinks they are doing what they are doing for positive reasons...
