  1. @SBB4746 Only feel sorry for yourself. This is your life and it's ending every passing second. Ironically you are egotripping over other peoples egotrips, so you commit the exact same sin and feel superiority over it.
  2. @Ingit I can't really help you further, you must see the reality of your mind for yourself. Watch all Leos enlightenment related videos and start a serious spiritual practise.
  3. @Ingit You don't have to do anything. Be mindful of your thought process during the day and when you notice a negative though loop, just simply drop it. Keep in mind that your thought problems and worries don't hold any substance. Im not saying you should ignore your life, Im saying don't take your thoughts so seriously. You would not say "This and that is wrong with your life, you should really reconsider your life, you are not doing your best... etc" to your friend, but internally you say it to yourself. Why? It's just insanity that we all do to some extent I can't even keep track of how many times I have recommended Eckhart Tolle's power of now here... But yeah I'm doing it again. Read it. Best book on thoughts and how to deal with them I have ever read, and doubt I will ever read.
  4. Just STOP! That is a made up problem that you are clinging to. Let your thoughts do what ever they want. Don't idealize your thought process, you have zero control over it. What you have is thoughts about thoughts, so you only have some silly thoughts you are too concerned about. There is no reality to your problem.
  5. @Dan Arnautu but as you discover your life purpose, you see that some or most of them are not in the core of your life purpose. Those are the ones you dabble with. That, or you find out your purpose is to be leonardo.
  6. Who is it, who is the judger of judgements? This is a deep topic and it quickly goes to the realm of enlightenment. You are not the judge. Thoughts that contain a judgement arise in consciousness. What is the source of the judgements? Did you plan to have a judgement? If not, why feel bad about them? I'm not lecturing btw, just pointing this perspective out. I have felt great relief from this issue by becoming mindful not only of my judgements, but the immediate guilt that follows afterwards. And then noticing that I was not responsible for having that thought. Who is the I that is responsible? When you grow, your mind naturally molds into a non-judgmental direction and you experience less judgmental thoughts. Shadow work is one of the best tools for this. The thing you judge, you don't accept in yourself. It's easy as that. You can go beyond your guilt of judgement right now.
  7. I googled what polymath means and in my native tongue it translates to "a common genius". Thats on hell of a title I would not consider myself as a common genius, but I am involved in multiple unrelated hobbies. Mastery indeed is a tough one. It would be easy if I were good at just one thing, but I'm good in many things but master at none. I think this issue comes down to your life purpose, as few of my hobbies lose significance when the scope of things is my whole life. Mastery is not some separate thing from your life, it should be integrated to it. I have not studied Leonardo, but I would guess that if you ask him: "what is your life's purpose" he would have answered in some way "the things I do". But was he happy? Was he enlightened? How about family life? I could spend my whole life mastering all my hobbies, but I know for certain I would not be happy and I would burn out. Considering the "job interview" issue, I don't know, sometimes you need to manipulate people if you WANT some outcome, like a job. Thats how social situations often are, unfortunately. There is nothing wrong with dabbling with some thing, but dabbling with your life is another thing entirely. What do you want out of life? I would drop the idea of "I am a polymath/ I want to be a polymath" as an idealized version of yourself and focus on life purpose and pursuing your passions. If your hobbies are your life purpose, well, there you go
  8. I would be careful to use this rhetoric. It's valid, but it's sooooooo easily misinterpreted, especially by people who post threads like this: That guy doesn't seem suicidal, but there is a history of suicidal posters on this forum. Let's all die before we die in a safe manner.
  9. I'm participating in a "weekend with Rubert Spira" with my lovely companion in Amsterdam in September. I want to make good use of my time there by listening closely to other peoples questions and Rubert's answers, but I also want to ask one solid question that covers some ground on the topic of non-duality that has not been really answered in his books or youtube videos. So none of these i consider good questions: how to self-inquire how to meditate how to yoga (not his expertice I believe) what is enlightenment how to get enlightened what am I what is reality how come I'm not enlightened "I have this problem..." One questions I have considered, rough outlines of the questions: "What is identification? It seems like identification is both active and passive in the sense that thought (that is perceived to be oneself) enforce the false self by defining itself (I am a man, my name is this, I am a human). It's also somehow passive, as if it was only passive, everyone would get enlightened the instant they did not actively define themselves. I'm going trough my life perceiving (the seeming) objects of the world to be separate from me. Does my passive/active idea have any truth to it or am I confused?" I'm really trying to avoid the situation where I ask a question for which I know his teaching already. It's a bit though to come up with good ones so, recommendations are welcome
  10. @tsuki thanks for your reply! I'm not concerned about one tablespoon of enlightenment/ full enlightenment, all I want to do is know what I am. But yeah, I get the sense that the part of me that want's to read is my mind, which is trying to grasp. I have heard it over and over again: "it's the simplest thing". How come I need to read about the simplest thing? Beats me. Waiting for mr @Leo Guras soul crushing hammer of reality to drop on this thread...
  11. In the end of stage turquoise Leo mentioned that you should read at least 30 books on non-duality if you are serious about awakening. I would like to get some perspective on this. Several teachers I have studied joke/talk something along the lines of "the truth is not found in any (sacred) book". I heard a story from somewhere where Ramana told his pupils to throw their spiritual books into a river. I have had a few experiences myself where I realized how silly it was to look for myself anywhere but within. Early this summer I had an LSD/meditation induced awakening where I basically exploded out of bliss, and at that moment I thought to myself "If/when this has faded, if there is one thing I must not forget, it's this: it is within" I reached a point early on this year where I was practicing quite hard for my level, and studying theory and listening to teachers. I felt like all the knowledge was starting to be really distracting, like my monkey mind was constantly blabbering about non-dual theory. Now I have not read any non-dual books for a while nor listened to teachers and I feel like my mind is clearer and I can focus on my actual experience better. Is this a path thing, or is there some crucial value in books that I'm not getting? I understand that books can point out potential traps of the work, but... I don't know. Anyone here who has awakened and can say that books helped in that process? @Leo Gura is the only person I have encountered who has recommended extensive reading on the topic. Anyone here who has read very few books and has had success just by practicing? I'm not interested in speculation from users who have intentionally read/not read books and had awakening spiritually, sorry. You are all great but I don't think you can give much value here, as I said it's more of a speculation than an opinion from experience.
  12. Interesting thread. One thing that separates the wheat from the chaff for me is: guru: "I am a guru" teacher: "I am you" Not all teachers say this aloud, but you kinda sense it. But again, Im not into gurus.
  13. @Joseph Maynor Who's arguing? I just pointed out what I consider as a subtle way of spiritual bypassing, that maybe slipped by your consciousness. There is a reason why many discussions on every day ordeals turn into pointless non-duality discussion lol
