  1. @Leo Gura So this direct experience Im having right now is the Only and One God?
  2. Is it true that there is only my awakening? That I am the only one that can realize Truth/God? Is it true that nobodyelse can realize God, but just me? So it only depends on just me, whether God is realized or not? Why is it just me? Isn't it too much responsibility that only I can realize God?
  3. @universe Because lets say yellow requires massive intelligence and intelligence is something that you are born with. So if you are not born with it that means that you cant reach yellow, no matter how hard you try.
  4. @cetus Because Im still a student and I can still live at home. Next year im graduating and then I will move out. I try to enjoy the time with my family and friends here.
  5. So Im making a list of my biases and Im trying to find out which ones are the most important to let go of. There are biases which are easy for me to let go of and then there are biases which are quite difficult to let go of. An easy bias to let go of would be the bias for specific type of music. I can listen to all kinds of music without attaching myself to one genre. Another bias that I try to let go of is the bias for my family and my friends. So next year Im moving out and with that I will be able to let go of that bias. I will also meet new people then, so my bias for my current friends will also be let go of. Of course I will still see my family and the friends I have here, but I have to learn to let them go and not attach myself so much to them. A bias that is difficult for me to let go of, would be my bias for enlightenment. That will be quite difficult. My bias towards women (as a heterosexual man) is another bias that will be difficult to let go of, but with practice I can open myself more and more to the other sex. Other biases of mine are: bias for health, bias for comfort, bias for the status quo and bias for entertainment (entertaining myself with YouTube-videos for example). What do you guys think, are the most important biases that someone can let go of that will bring them closer to god/absolute reality? thanks, appreciate your answers
  6. @Leo Gura I mean, people who can think in complex ways, have to be intelligent. Their IQ is definitely above average, dont you think so? Do you know Tier 2-thinker who you wouldnt consider as being smart/intelligent?
  7. Almost all the people who I think are at SD Stage Yellow are really smart/intelligent. Do you think someone has to be that way in order to be on that Stage of the Spiral? Are there any "less intelligent" or average smart people, who are at that stage? Do you know any examples? Thank you
  8. Hello An egoic desire is for example wanting to live unconditionally happy, wanting to experience real peace, wanting to escape suffering, wanting to experience the highest joy etc. I know, that in the end you have to drop all these things because you will realize that the ego is an illusion and likewise all these egoic desires. But these desires can give someone the motivation to meditate hardcore, to work with psychedelics, to do hardcore retreats etc. Because without hardcore practice you wont ever awaken. And in my opinion, if these desires can bring someone to meditate hardcore, then they can be valid motivations towards awakening. What do you think? I think it is valid to trick the ego with these desire to do the spiritual practices and before the ego actually realizes that it is going to die, it will be to late to go back because awakening will destroy it.
  9. @Leo Gura But how do you embody and live through Stage Green then, if you dont value socializing that much?
  10. @Loving Radiance I can live life to the fullest, without needing much money.
  11. @Leo Gura Do you think it's morally wrong if you live off the taxes of other people, just so you dont have to work and are free to for example pursue enlightenmenf full-time? I know some people here in Germany, who havent worked for years and decades and who are taking advantage of the welfare system. It isnt that much money, but they say that you can live from that money. Imagine you are free everyday. I would do spiritual practices all day long, meditate for 12h, everyday. Thats a lifestyle Im considering for myself, but I somehow think that its wrong, because you live off the taxes of other people. But on the other hand, maybe the government would waste these taxes for other things.
  12. @Leo Gura There are social systems (for example, where I live in Germany) that make it possible not to work anymore while they are giving you money to surivive. Its not very much, but if you are minimalistic you could live with that money. You would have escaped wage slavery and had enough time to pursue enlightenment full-time. You would leech off society, thats true, but better give the money to poor people or people who dont want to work than to waste it for war or other stupid things.
  13. @Leo Gura Whats your opinion on Neuro-Feedback, Leo? I could buy such a device for myself and then train my concentration.
  14. @Leo Gura That seems like an impossible task to do. Are there any methods that can boost your concentration? How about Neuro-Feedback-Training?
  15. For me it is not understandable that successful people dont care about enlightenment because someone, who is very successful is in general someone with very much ambition. They are successful because they want more out of life than the average Joe. So they chase success until they get it and after a while they get used to it. Because of their personality type and ambition the next logcial step would be that they naturally seek for something higher, to want more out of life (this desire made them successful in the first place). So I can totally understand Maslows point here. But in reality it looks quite different. Enlightenment and spirituality will become more and more popular within the social matrix. Even today more people know about it (thanks to people like Tolle) than 20 years ago. Regarding your last point: So you are saying that someone, who is interested in enlightenment and interserested in pursuing it, is someone who is more conscious than someone, who doesnt care about it?
