  1. The tricky part is the nuances here, not everyone is exactly the same in their development, no matter what "category" they are in, and even then their situational upbringings and everything else always have additional "baggage" to the interaction. Anna is right about not being so judgmental, but it's a bit more than just that - being non-judgmental comes from a place of understanding, of oneself and others. You understand why someone acts the way they do, and why you act the way you do. Therefore it becomes more inherent in your interactions that you are not pegging yourself higher (narcissism) or lower (insecurity/self hate) - If you can speak to someone, freely open to their ideas not from a place of defensiveness trying to smash their beliefs with a hammer but come from a place of openness, you may get further within the interaction and both parties may leave with something valuable from that discussion. all in all, i'd say try to understand why you want to communicate with someone in a differing stage on the spiral and how your interactions can cascade to events further down the line, whatever that may be for that instance.
  2. that's not what he's implying though, he's saying that taking the actions necessary (such as meditation for example) will yield some sort of result in the future - Trying to navigate your life "consciously' can be distorted through the mind and become neurotic and unsustainable because you're always focused on the upcoming future; therefore an unconscious reactionary mode of life. at least that's how i interpreted his statements.
  3. Yes AND No. actively deluding, yes. Trying, no, it happens to be that way, yes. It just is. This goes for everything not just sight and sound. If you don't verbally speak, there is no actual voice to be heard, if you don't think there are no thoughts to be thought of. It simply is direct experience. understand the distinction and the coexistence of perception and being. Being as a fundamental, perception being a dependency and how the two are symbiotic to one another.
  4. Why is love the substance of everything and has no counterpart? in a sense, i'd imagine i understand the infinite scope of unconditional love where it is the nonrestrictive allowance for any and all things to occur - of course embodiment is a completely different subject to understanding - but does embodiment of absolute love inherit the dissolving of self-bias?
  5. time is a man-made construct for the utility of the type of culture we are in, furthermore it's a construct that is not accurate nor is it consistent across the board, (timezones, alternative methods of recording time, etc) to think our man-made constructs hold significance is delusion.
  6. No need to get wound up. Not to mention, you're directing your pent-up emotions at the people who don't care that the videos are long, generally speaking. If someone thought Leo's videos were too long, they likely wouldn't come here to read pages upon pages of similar topics regarding stuff that has been brought up in his videos. You may wanna self reflect on the reactionary manner in which you responded to finding out that some people don't have the attention span for long-format videos, that may be more fruitful than your post here.
  7. I could be completely wrong, so take my statements with a grain of salt. Each one of those states you describe are contradictory (counters to each other) however realize the path you're on is one of growth, you must build the foundation first, which is success and or stability, once you have met your basic needs (refer to Maslow's hierarchy of needs) you will be in a position where it's much easier to reach the state of peace. Keep in mind this is not necessary, but it's a process which eases the path. The less you are worried about paying bills, eating, etc. The more you can focus on the inner peace and happiness you desire. furthermore if you wish to embody non dual peace it's crucial to accept every moment as okay and understand that all problems are not only relative to your own position, but actually not true at all. But this is not easy to do, as you will continuously want to create problems to solve, as that's what the mind is great at. keep in mind this process involves weeding out that which is not helpful to the current stage of development you are in and redirecting that wasted energy to something more positive and fulfilling for you, once you have reached a place that brings you joy and your passion shines through, you will be in a position to embody and radiate this to others around you. One step at a time, there's no rush.
  8. i'd say nearly everything is a spectrum, especially this. Seemingly nothing remains constant on a spectrum either, from my experience.
  9. That actually helps clarify a lot, thanks for that.
  10. Interesting perspective. I recall you saying a few times that people can move up the spiral but not down - i've had objections to this, but if i'm being honest they are somewhat face-value objections - as far as i can remember you didn't give that much attention. It's difficult for me to see the impossibility due to the fact that we all backslide and have stagnant moments with growth and more so that some people find a pit stop in life and settle in until they're dead. Would you mind expanding on this briefly on why you'd say it's not possible to regress back down the spiral?
  11. Experience and passion towards intrinsic values and intuition, though it has certainly lead me astray at times as well due to dependency. If i'm being honest - I'd argue i have not let go of my biggest fears, although i'd like to think i have on any given day. Though over time i've learned how to detach from negative emotions and resolve them to a certain degree, perhaps not completely. It takes a compassionate understanding to not only love and accept yourself but whatever it is that you are using as the excuse of self infliction. Reconciling these things is simple, but hard. Which leads back to my whole idea of self sacrifice. Agreeing solely a self deception, you may agree on anything you want, doesn't mean you are aligned with that agreement in any regard. Just as agreeing that the earth is flat doesn't change the way you navigate through the world, nor does agreeing that the earth is round. But it does change what you're identified with - which correlates with that spider on the wall, because in mind it raises the notion that your identity is at risk through that spider.
  12. Precisely - Clarifying and asking what you think you lose is crucial in this step. Otherwise you will be in fear of loss without actually understanding what that fear resides in. Letting go of deep psychological trauma is difficult, especially when you're attempting to no longer identify solely on these experiences and everyone copes in different ways under similar circumstances. My input is hardly beneficial, however it has the potential (like anyone else's) to fruit new dynamics of the receiver's perspective I suppose.
  13. Delusion comes in many flavors, shedding light on the delusion is bittersweet.
