  1. Pretend you are Really, use visualizations to put yourself in the situation. The more you do it the naturally it will come in real life. Deida's work really goes to the core of sexual communication. I've realized that the more integrated I become (integrating range of emotions, impulses, desires and OWNING them), the more grounded and more attractive I become to the opposite sex. So far in my experience, women can sense much more than men think they are giving away. The one that I really liked was Function, Flow and Glow series. He demonstrates some of the practices with volunteers.
  2. Books and lectures by David Deida are highly relevant to the discussion happening here. He has developed his own spin on Tantra, goes deep into masculinity and femininity - is a joy to listen to. He has a number of recorded sessions on YouTube. Check him out. One pick up channel that embodies stage green values is The Natural Lifestyle / James Marshall. He's good.. Like a wise / well matured middle aged guy sharing his wisdom. David D'Angelo (Eben Pagan) is pretty old but has some great (stage yellow?) material to help. He's unbiased, logical-oriented and gets to the core. If you like his work, his ebook Attraction isn't a choice is a great read. Gave me a lot of insights.
  3. Why is no one, other than a few trolls, talking about Leo yet?
  4. That's a good one. This exercise has been more effective for me than anything else I have done in a long time. I have replaced morning affirmations routine with questions routine and it feels great! I want to complete a total of 1000 questions in 3 weeks, just to see what I've got.

  6. Why does the earth go around the Sun?
  7. You have touched upon this in a video detailing four stages of personal development.. Victim > Fighter > Creator > Ego Transcendence Osho has mentioned this in many of his lectures as well.. One cannot transcend ego until it is strong enough to unite and sustain a personality, independent of others. A weak (or inexperienced?) ego is always fearful, greedy, or needy. Being self sufficient is a milestone in the path to being selfless. I might be missing some nuances here. I am sure most people on the path realize this, sooner or later,but being conscious of the fact definitely brings a lot of clarity.
  8. One of these books: 'Sadhguru-More than a life' or 'Mystics's musings' . Not sure which one, I read it passing by a book store. The book is in a question-answer format in which Arundhati asks something along the lines of: What is enlightenment experientially? How has it changed your day to day experience? That said, 'Sadhguru-More than a life' is a great stage-Turquoise motivation, if you will.
  9. When asked what is his everyday experience after awakening, Sadhguru mentioned that he can have upto 8 to 12 thought threads (related /unrelated) simultaneously in his mind, and yet go about his business (without getting caught up with any) That's incredible! It would be really interesting to know the changes in Leo's experience over the years, particularly after this awakening experience.
  10. Leo's latest video on scientific dualities triggered a deep sense of discomfort within me, for good. It felt like falling in an endless well. It started with panic (of having lost the pointers to map my experiences) and soon transformed into bliss (of realizing that I was the creator of those categories anyway, and I can make them as up as I want, if I want). My mind tends to be really active in symbols and symbolic imagery, and with the intention of integrating this with my everyday life, I started to wonder what the role of symbols (like the language I am using to get this across to you) is - in the whole network of reality. Have you seen a Rainbow? It doesn't just have seven colors. The distinction between what we call Violet and Indigo is not easily discernible. An example, quoted from an Environmental Psychology book 'Drunk Tank Pink' A 'thing' does not exist until it is categorized in some fashion. A category does not exist until it is 'defined' within rigid boundaries and is given a name. This seems obvious when you get it. Leo's 3 part series on Dualities is to trigger an unlearning process of the 20 years of schooling / scientific indoctrination. Analysis is crucial for intellectual work. For finding distinctions, developing a set of characteristics that define it and studying those set of characteristics to form conclusions. But the problem with this approach is that Analysis leaves out more than it covers. We keep adding new words into our dictionaries every year because new concepts are born every year. Further, different cultures have a fundamentally different concept of, for example, time. Synthesis attempts to rectify this problem by zooming out as wide as possible and noticing all the subtle and nuanced ways everything is networked together. True Holism is the integration of Analysis AND Synthesis.
  11. What is the cause behind the chaos and destruction in the World?
  12. How to absorb your awakenings experiences fully within one's body-mind-spirit and inform one's every experience! How to integrate awakening states to get to awakened stages? Specially when access to these states are gained through psychedelics. Body relaxation? Writing / Journaling?
  13. OR How to be creative? Is it just connecting things? Is a creative mind a fallacy? What is true creativity? What are the different levels of creativity? I have heard you mention the 'source self' as 'infinite creative potential'. How does one tap into this existential creativity? What is Genius? Why do all creative insights seem to come from alternating periods of intense focus and utter relaxation? What is the relationship between being a 'giver' in general and being a 'creative'?
  14. He won't talk about it in the whole video - just to fuck with our brains.
  15. Warning: Speculation ahead @iamnotahumanbeing@tenta I agree that it doesn't have anything to do with artificial intelligence and machine learning but these developments certainly will facilitate the development of the stage. Similar to how Red grew with development of weapons (enhancing one's power to exert force onto others), Blue developed with organized force and the invention of religion to keep the heretics (Red) in check. Distribution of Psychedelics (mystical experiences for everyone - "Can you pass the acid test?") had a role in the development of Green and Internet (Free distribution of information) had a role in the development of Yellow. Similarly, Artificial intelligence will certainly have a role to play, I cannot be sure what and to what extent. A better understanding would come out of comparing SD level with LOC (Level of Consciousness), there is a certain correlation.
