  1. How possible is to pass Turkey and escape to Greece? A lot of refugees and immigrants come like that here but its not an ideal scenario.
  2. @Nahm damn. Really thanks a lot
  3. I was also thinking that maybe I have to start with Tony Robbins style self-help, would that help?
  4. @Nahm This is achieved through meditation and awareness right?
  5. @PepperBlossoms Thanks for you answer, it was honest and compassionate. I knew that this forum could help unlike my friends and family cycle.
  6. Thank you all for your nice thoughts. I really appreciate that some ppl understood and put the effort to help my lost mind from the void. However wants to add something please go ahead.
  7. Hi everyone, So I'm 19, and I'm watching Leo's videos since 16. It changed me as a person I can say , my perspective and everything, and Im so grateful that I am growing up with an open-mind and as a "more" conscious person than the typical teen. Till I graduate highschool I was a Preformance-Swimmer in Greece, lots of trainning , hard working at school etc.( although I always had problem with procrastination). Now I moved in Netherlands and study my passion Food Science in one of the greenest and most progressive Universities in the world. Wageningen UR. So from swimmer I went to a full time student, matured by living alone, trying psychedelics, met tons of inspiring ppl but also started some bad habits like habitually smoking weed, and stopped exercising . This year was life transforming from all perspectives. The problem is that I was lost in my thoughts for a big part and judging myself a lot for not being very productive in uni work. But also I felt very disconnected with ppl, I feel no one can understand me , my problems and my thoughts. Everybody has their own agenda you know... ( and yes Im pretty social). I even thought of starting writing a book in order to express myself and maybe touch some ppl that feel the same and give my perspective to the world. The main questions are How I fight unproductivity to the root, achieve real passion for my studies? I feel Im interested in tons of things and not focusing on food science. How I stop being on the phone and instead build healthy habits? Why am worrying so much that I don't connect with ppl as friends or with my partners? Am I to young for self-actualization? Careful , I've done big research on unproductivity through Leo, others , my therapist and a student trainining cosultant. But still the problem is there , and that disappoints me the most. I can't trust myself anymore. I hope someone in this forum can give me his/her personal experience and inspire me to grow this summer and see finally a radical change. Thanks to whoever puts the effort, peace and love.
  8. I'm not very experienced as others in the group but , I understand things. For my perspective you over stressing the topic and it backfires to you. Try just accepting that you have an ego and there is a reason to be there. Socializing is nice with all types of people because it gives you other perspectives. Take life as journey and live it with passion. Your opinions right now sound narrow , cold and all this denial it brings me negativity/arrogance vibes. Try to work more with your psychology. Do you think Leo and others are stupid to discuss in this forums? Socializing and helping is good because we are still humans. Live your Life bro! Peace and Love , don't misunderstand me , I don't want to sound offensive.
  9. @Dragon Liege I cannot put him as orange , he has a lot of yellow values. The egoism he provokes its not the bad term of egoistic character who does't give a damn about humanity. I believe his points are very deep and is very easy to paraphrase him or demonize him about being egoistic. For me is a lot of yellow.
  10. What's your opinion on Max Stirner's thoughts? Do you believe it helps ones self-actualization? Ofc we don't fall in dogmas but what do you think? Do you believe this egoistic point of view has to offer sth? Is anarcho-individualism high consciousness?
  11. I read somewhere " Everyone's ego is moving through his perverse repentance and self-invents ways to wonder with other egos (or yous)(ego also means "I" in greek), creating an infinite braid" What do you think?
  12. What could be the answer according to philosophy , spirituality or just personal opinion? I don't mean if its bad or good to do it!
  13. All your comments where great, I can really understand where the root of violence is coming from, resisting BY will to commercial and violent goodies I dont think it works, better to elevate through spirituallity so at one point you won't need those things around you. For now as an 18yo full of hormones I dont think is bad to enjoy some goods here and there, watching a little bit of Martin Scorsese movies, play some Call of Duty or watch some soccer. Like once an a while with friends. Everything is part of our Experience anyways. "Everything in Moderation" as Cleobulus used to say.
  14. @egoeimai Recognizing a Greek Face miles away
  15. Why people like violence in entertainment products like music, movies, series and video games. What approach would you give on the topic? Do you think even a moderate consumption of this culture is harmful for the psyche? Is anything valuable?
