I suggest using a youtube transcript generator like youtubetranscript.com for everyone going through videos and taking notes. You can click on the line and it will take you to the exact spot in the video.

This is tremendously helpful when combined with the search tool (for me STRG+F) for finding specific passages and topics.

In addition to that, I think I will use this for lectures, talks and interviews because I can read faster than most people speak.

Thanks for the link.  I also like to use the “Show Transcript” feature on Youtube.  You can open it and even use a search function on the transcript.

    - Pierce
    - Ayn Rand
    - Richard Rorty
    - Confucius
    - Husserl 
    - Russo


- there is no one true philosophy, but a mix of idealism, panpsychism, pantheism, monism, non-duality, Zen, Buddhism, Vedanta, radical skepticism, pyrrhonism, mysticism, holism, relativism, Hindu idealism, solipsism, subjectivism and phenomenology is the best pointer.
    - still wont take you to truth.


- mental masturbation is a trap of philosophy, it can turn into that, but not necessarily.
    - you can use it to gain understanding and fix practical mundane daily problems.


- if you do philosophy badly, expect to become insane, suicidal, start or join some cult or become dogmatic.
    - worst case scenario.


- if you do good philosophy though, you will reach a point where everything is clear.
    - this state will lead to awakening, god realization, infinite consciousness, immortality, absolute perfection, and total clarity.


- philosophy is also about cultivating your mind and intelligence.


- philosophies that are a waste of your time: dualism, atheism, behaviorism, materialism, physicalism, realism, scientific realism, logical positivism, empiricism, rationalism, libertarianism, nihilism, absurdism, existentialism, and reductionism.


- you are not gonna find truth in academia and university.


- there is not such thing as too young to do philosophy.


- there are downsides to philosophy
    - you can live in your own eco chamber.
    - you can neglect the survival aspects of life.


- how to get started
    - briefly study all the philosophies that exist.
    - make a list of questions you are most interested in answering.
    - do independent contemplation.
    - observe your mind at work.
    - be honest about your biases and deceptions.


- you need integrity and embodiment to do philosophy.

The Power of Not-Knowing

 

“Teach thy tongue to say I don’t know and thou shalt progress.” - Maimonides

 

In most situations, the truth is that you simply don’t know.

 

The biggest obstacle to spirituality is everything you think you know but that you really don’t know.

 

Most ignorant people think they know everything, and the wisest people are aware of the limits of their knowledge.

 

How aware am I of the limits of knowledge?

 

Consider that I don’t know what anything is.

 

What is anything at all?  This should disturb me if I do it correctly.

 

What is a fork?  My mind tells me that I know what a fork is.  But I don’t. 

 

Notice the sub definitions I have of a fork or any object.

 

Put myself in a knowing mode and a not-knowing mode.  

 

Look at the fork deeply to where I stop knowing what it is.

 

Nobody knows what a fork is.

 

Is it impossible to know what a fork is?

 

If it is possible, then how?  Why is knowing so difficult?

 

Why is it not possible?  What does that mean for the rest of my reality?

 

I don’t know what space, time, matter, energy, meditation, sound, beauty, happiness, spirituality, science, morality, light, math, other, reality, understanding, and I don’t even know what knowledge is.

 

School doesn’t tell me that humanity doesn’t know what anything is.

 

I am in a conceptual house of cards of knowing.  

 

The core idea is that most of my knowledge is constructed.  My knowledge is highly constructed, biased, conceptual illusion designed to maintain my survival, sense of sanity, and comfort.  My knowledge isn’t grounded in a deep truth.  

 

Truth is not about survival, sanity, or comfort.

 

My life is a conceptual house of cards, which is why I and others act so defensively in debates, arguments, etc.

 

Why do people get defensive?

 

If I am so convinced of the truth of my conceptual fortress, then why am I so defensive, triggered, and criticize others?

 

Why do I even have intellectual arguments if I am already in possession of the truth?

 

Or, maybe deep down, I suspect that I am living in a conceptual fortress, and if I am not defensive, then it will collapse.

 

How will I then maintain survival, comfort, and sanity.  This is what most people want as opposed to truth.  

 

I am fooling myself with how much I know.  Most of the stuff I know is biased and wrong.

 

This stems all the problems in my life.

 

Issues in life don’t come with the warning label that my whole understanding of reality is wrong.

 

I think the problem is external.  But really, the problem is that I am fooling myself about the stuff I think I know.

 

It is hard to let go of knowledge.

 

There are many degrees of knowing a thing.  Knowledge is a spectrum.

 

 

All minds put up fake fronts of knowing.  This includes, beliefs, hearsay, intuition, theories, etc.  All knowledge is twisted to fit the ego.

 

Do I care more about the truth or about being right?

 

Most people would rather be right than to seek the truth.

 

Most of our lives is programmed.  Society is programming me to be part of the society.  I cannot assume that what is best for society is aligned with truth.

 

 

Admit the basic truth that I don’t know a thing when I don’t know it.

 

Society creates a religion of knowing through religion, science, business, politicians, school, etc.  All of this creates the social matrix.

 

Humans never acknowledge the depth of their own ignorance.

 

Science only plays lip-service to not-knowing.  Even the things science says that we know, we don’t actually know.

 

Science overestimates what we really know.  It plays a game of false humility.

 

 

Society pressures us to make up crap when we don’t really know.  Not-knowing is treated as a weakness.

 

Not-knowing is treated as not even an option.  But Not-knowing is often the best option.

 

Skeptics teach us that knowing is impossible.  But we dismiss it.  We don’t care about the truth, but we care about what works and what is practical.

 

We build our knowledge without considering the cost.  The cost of knowing is closed-mindedness, self-deception, assumptions, conflating map for territory, being lost in fantasy.  

 

Not-knowing is connecting to truth, love, and being. 

 

The ego hates uncertainty.  It would rather have false certainty than stand in I Don’t Know.

 

The ego creates narratives to help it survive.  

 

Knowledge has a constructive element to it.  I don’t just know a static objective world.  My mind constructs the world as I come to know it.  

 

The fork is entangled with my mind.  The fork is my mind.

 

 

Newtonian mechanics is not fully how reality works and we know this, but we still use it because it is practical.

 

The mind has a natural need to know itself.  Even children have a natural curiosity to understand the world.

 

Why do I have a natural desire to understand the universe?

 

The reason I have this desire is because God has a desire to know itself, and I am That.

 

God’s motive is self-realization.  Curiosity exists because I want to know ultimate reality.

 

Curiosity tethers me to God.  If I follow curiosity long enough, I will reach God/Truth.

 

 

Reality is too profound to be knowable.  If reality can be knowable, then I am underestimating reality.  Reality is too infinite for me to know it.  I can awaken to the profundity of reality.

 

The counterintuitive move is to stand in I don’t know.  Bask in I don’t know.

 

It takes wisdom and courage to admit I don’t know.  

 

The way to have the courage to admit my ignorance is to realize that it is better for me to admit I don’t know or have been wrong once than to spend forever pretending that I do know or that I am right when I am not.

 

I only have to admit I am wrong once.  Living and suppressing the truth that I was wrong is worse than just admitting I was wrong once.

 

Most people aren’t thinking long-term, so they want to pretend to save themselves embarrassment.

 

Ex. admitting Buddhism is wrong rather than spending my whole life defending it and thinking it is right.

 

Not-knowing gets me out of fantasy. Buddhism is a fantasy, science is a fantasy, society is a fantasy, etc.

 

Not-knowing is a powerful technique to combat self-deception, paradigm lock, closed-mindedness, etc.

 

Become honest about when I don’t know a thing.  This takes introspection.  

 

Practice not-knowing.  Stop parroting what I learn and sit with I don’t know.

 

 

Distinguish theory of not-knowing vs. state of not-knowing.

 

Exercise: Not-Knowing Meditation

 

Close eyes and erase past and future.

 

Erase all that I think I know.  If I still think I am in my house, then I am not in genuine Not-Knowing.

 

Knowing prevents insights and awakening.  Not-knowing creates space for new insights and awakenings.

 

 

Exercise: What are 10 things I claim to know but that I don’t know?

 

Is the Earth 4 billion years old? I don’t know.

Does the Earth exist? I don’t know.

are fish oil supplements harming my health? I don’t know.

Did Jesus really exist? I don’t know.

Do other people have consciousness?  I don’t know.

Is God real? I don’t know.

 

The truth is that I don’t know.  The truest answer is I don’t know.

 

Forgive myself for being foolish.

 

Do I really know or am I pretending to know?

 

Belief and hearsay isn’t real knowing.  Direct experience is king.

 

 

All knowledge is second-order.  All knowledge is about existence.

 

Existence is first-order.  The raw sensations of the fork is being.  What I think or know about the fork is second-order.

 

My knowledge of the fork is not about the being of the fork.

 

I am focused on the second-order of what I can use the thing for and I forget the being of a thing and I pretend like there never is a first-order.

 

Conceptual knowledge is a way of avoiding the mystery of being.

 

Being = consciousness.

 

If you stop caring about the first-order, you stop caring about reality because reality is first order.

 

If scientists want to understand consciousness, they have to study it at the first-order because consciousness is at the first-order.

 

My existence is prior to my knowledge of it.

 

To know something, I first have to exist.

 

I exist but I don’t know what existence is.

 

 

Knowing infinity is not possible because knowing is second-order.  Infinity cannot fully know itself because knowing is a subset of infinity.

 

A hand cannot grab itself.  Infinity cannot grasp or know itself.  

 

Being is mystical and mysterious.  Mystical = mysterious.

 

Mystical means it is so fundamental that it is too profound to be known that is mystery.

 

Science can’t find God because God is the totality of everything and the totality of everything cannot be grasped by a subset of that totality.

 

Reality cannot be explicated.

 

Knowledge is also being.  If I want to know my own knowledge, I have to create another layer of knowing.  This is a meta problem.  Grasping my own thoughts requires layer and another layer to infinity.

 

I know something by being it, by existing.  The deeper knowing is through being.  If I want to understand what I am at the deepest level, I have to get there through being, not knowing.  That is what meditation is about.

 

Awakening itself comes with a profound not-knowing.  Awakening is pure being.  My sensory field becomes my way of knowing.  I am not knowing using my intellect or mind or language or concepts.  Awakening will help me know the fork more intimately.

 

All of my thoughts and ideas about a fork will never resemble the actual fork.

 

With language and thought, a lot gets lost in translation.  It is like describing a sunset to a blind person.  I have to give the blind person vision to get him to understand what a sunset is.

 

Omniscience happens at the first-order, at the level of being and not at the level of thought or second-order.

 

Omniscience is not about how many kangaroos exist in Australia, it is about realizing that all of that is imaginary.

 

Deconstruction leads to not-knowing and not-knowing leads to deconstruction.

 

 

Paradox of not-knowing:  A wise mind admits of not-knowing more, but ends up knowing things that fools think are impossible to know.

 

Fools think it is impossible to know what reality is.  It is impossible when your mind is locked down with ideology.

 

When mind is open to mystical experiences, then it is possible.

 

When the mind realizes it knows less and less, mystical experiences open up.

 

 

Be careful not to misuse not-knowing.  It is important to still use knowledge.  Dont get lost in false skepticism and nihilism.  

 

Everything is subjective and nothing can be known is a misuse of not-knowing.

 

Misuse of not-knowing can be with life purpose to where you say you don’t even know if you want your life purpose or if you even can get out of bed and work.

 

My passion for life should run deeper than any conceptual knowledge.  Love survives all deconstruction of knowledge.

 

Misuse of not-knowing is I don’t even know if eating healthy is good for me.  What if heroine is good for me?  I will just sit home and watch cartoons all day.  That is a trap and misuse of not-knowing.

 

Stick to my core principles.  I don’t need 100% certainty about anything.  That is another trap.  I don’t need 100% certainty.  Nothing is that certain.

 

I have to act.  Survival and happiness requires action.  I want to act decisively towards something.

 

 

Misusing not-knowing: X cannot be known is a misuse of not-knowing.

 

I will never have absolute knowledge of anything but I still have to act.

 

Putting foolishness and wisdom on the same footing is a misuse of not-knowing.

 

Dont turn not-knowing into idiocy.  Not-knowing doesn’t mean that I have to abide bullshit, foolishness, ideology, conspiracy theories, etc.

 

All of knowledge is in the game of survival.  Keep one eye on God and one eye on survival.

 

Not-knowing doesn’t mean that I don’t pursue education, reading books, school, contemplation, journaling, insight, wisdom, etc.

 

When I am not taking action, society programs me with bullshit.

 

Maintain my healthy habits.  Survival = act or die.

 

 

If not-knowing is the case then why do you seem to know so much?

 

How can I act and create a good life while not-knowing?

 

Intuition and feeling into your heart.  My job is to honor my spirit’s love for different parts of reality.

 

 

**Practical Takeaways:**

 

 

Contemplate the limits of knowing, what is knowing, how is it possible, what do i know and not know?

 

Question all that is known.  

 

Notice that I don’t know the being of anything

 

Enter deep states of not-knowing many times.

 

Dont let others and society to pressure me into knowing.  Build that backbone to say I don’t know.

 

Bask in the mystery of not-knowing.

 

Contemplate: What do I know for sure?

 

Distinguish belief vs. direct experience.

 

Wipe my worldview clean.  

 

Write down 10 things that I think I know but that I really don’t.  

 

Balance not-knowing with action.  Be active in my life and practice not-knowing.

 

Operate from intuition and implicit understanding.

 

Enter into a deep state of not-knowing before I do meditate and contemplation and before I interact with others.

 

Become comfortable with not-knowing and uncertainty.

 

Practice improvisation.

Solipsism Notes 

 

“One who sees everything as nothing but the Self, and the Self in everything one sees, such a seer withdraws from nothing.  For the enlightened, all that exists is nothing but the Self.” - Ishopanishad; Sloka 6, 7

 

“May I recognize whatever appeareth as being mine own thought-forms.” - Tibetan Book of the Dead

 

Student: “How should we treat others?”

 

Ramana Maharishi: “There are no others.”

 

Anyone who claims the existence of other minds, or even allows them as a theoretical possibility, does not realize oneself as God.

 

Introduction

 

Definition of Solipsism

Solipsism = Solis (Alone) Ipsi (Self)

Philosophical idea that only one’s own mind is sure to exist

Knowledge of anything outside the mind is unknown

Self is the only existing reality and all persons are representations of the self

Denial of existence of other minds

Other minds are private and are inference at best

 

Mankind and I gives negative connotations to Solipsism

Start to wonder why

Why am I biased against Solipsism?  Why do I assume it is crazy or bad?

 

Having a bias against Solipsism is unscientific and irrational

Truth is the truth regardless of whether it is liked or not.

Logic or improbability have nothing to do with Truth

 

Be open to all possible worldviews until I arrive at Truth

 

If I am interested in Truth, then it does not matter if it is Solipsism

 

People make a mistake to assume and make a fact that it is impossible to know Truth.

 

Solipsism deals with the nature of self but also nature of other.

Other is the inverse of my self-definition

 

What is other?  What is self?  They are inter-defined.

 

Spirituality frames it as What is the Self? But the uncommon direction is to ask What is Other?  Most people don’t contemplate what other is.

 

Be open to the fact that I don’t know what other is.  Other may not exist.

 

If I change my identity of self, I change my identity of other.

 

Infinite self makes no more room for other.

 

My definitions of self and other are mentally constructed

 

 

Is Solipsism True? Yes.

 

Most people object to Solipsism because it is too crazy and radical.

 

I can become conscious of what self and other are.

 

Other is my own self and my own mind.

 

My entire worldview and life depends on the notion of other.  Other defines my self and my sense of reality.

 

Awakening is realizing I am God and that I am the only conscious thing there is.

 

Be conscious of everything being myself and that I am alone.  God’s mind is alone and sovereign.  

 

I give partitions of other minds, but I fail to realize that I constructed all of that in my own mind.  

 

Other is my own construction.  I am the only conscious thing in existence.  There cannot be any other conscious being.  There are not multiple conscious beings or souls or parallel lives or past lives or parallel lives.  There is only my life right now.  All the qualia and experience now is all that existence. 

 

 I have 100% direct consciousness of existence.  The issue is that I imagine other things to explain away the present moment.

 

Outside of this dream is nothing and no-one but me.

 

Mainstream notions of solipsism don’t include God, Love, Will, Intelligence, etc.

 

My human self is part of the construction.

 

My bubble of consciousness is all there is and nothing is outside of it.  All of the qualia is my bubble.

 

Life is a dream for an audience of one.  It is a dream for myself.  There is only one entity that needs to be fooled to construct reality. Myself.

 

Why would there be other minds?  Solipsism is the simplest explanation.

 

How is reality created?  

Dream up self and other and fool myself

 

Multiple animals being born are all the same self and not other to each other.

 

Science cannot tell me what other is.

 

Rather than having materialism and multiple minds, there is one consciousness that fools itself with images of other minds outside of itself.

 

All things that I posit will always have a self-referential problem and infinite regress.  It pushes problems down a level.

 

There are no limits to what Infinite Mind can create. An atom is just as easy to create as an elephant.  Mind does not need a big bang or years of evolution.  It just imagines this human life and then a chain of causation of stories.

 

As a kid, I asked questions of where am I? Where did I come from?  My mind started filling in the blanks from society when I don’t know.  The backstory becomes my worldview.  Biology, history, science, etc. are all backstories to explain the present moment.

 

I have given my authority to imaginary others.  Others have an impact on my self.

 

I assume adults know what they are talking about when in fact they went through the same thing as me.

 

I am all that I have ever experienced in my life.

Before I was born there was nothing.

All that I have ever experienced was myself

visual, auditory, emotions, thoughts, tastes, smells, touch, etc.

I have never experienced anything other than my own mind, my own experience

My experience is absolute

Anything other than direct experience is speculation and inference

All science and all others is part of my experience

I am experience

 

I have given my authority and trusted others more than my direct experience

This is a problem.  Trusting others is a second-order phenomenon.  I have to first assume they are real and that they are in my direct experience.

Trusting myself and direct experience is primary.

 

Why am I so triggered by Solipsism?  Why do I want reality to be different from Solipsism?  Why do I depend on the companionship of others?

Others define the self

 

Solipsism is objective, denial of it is subjective and emotional reaction.

 

Other can be minds and inanimate objects like external world.

 

Can there be something beyond my experience?

anything beyond my experience is in my experience

 

No amount of thought experiments or science will always be in my experience.

 

All of us are solipsists are already. But some go one dream further.

We all accept that at night we dream and that they are solipsistic 

The entire dream and dream characters are a construction of my own mind.

When I wake up from a dream, all other characters are all me.

Do my dream characters have a mind of their own?

How is reality any different from how I dream?

 

I am dreaming right now, but I still cling to otherness.

 

When I wake up from this dream, it will be just me and nothing else.

 

Spiritual teachers say life is just a dream.  There is a notion is that when I wake up from this dream, there will be others waiting for me on the other side.  There is only one dreamer who dreams all other dreamers.

 

I am very attached to dreaming.  I am 100% responsible.  I am constructing the entire dream.  I am responsible for everything in my experience.

 

“We are all atheists but I believe in one less God than you.”

 

— We are all solipsists.  My nighttime dreams are imaginary.  Make that shift to all of my experience and not exclusive to my dreams.

 

Nighttime dreams are grounded in daytime dreams.  Nighttime dreams and reality is imaginary distinction.  

 

Solipsism traditionally is not tied into spirituality.  But Absolute Solipsism is spiritual.

 

Solipsism is essence of spirituality.  Love, God, Will, Omniscience, Immortality, Eternity, etc. are all part of Solipsism.  This dream is my own will and my own intelligence.  

 

All mystical/spiritual traditions point towards Solipsism.

 

FAQs

 

Enlightened teachers deny Solipsism

they are not fully awake and not conscious how they are creating all sense of other

Some may be conscious of this but do not want to tell people this because they want others to discover it for themselves.

Solipsism is bad marketing and triggers people

Ex. Ramana Maharshi was a Solipsist and says “there is no other.”

Most people will not reach the highest levels

Not telling kids about death and letting them figure it out - analogy

 

Where do my ideas of enlightenment come from?

teachers

books

from “others”

 

Be aware of spiritual ego

 

Goal: Have a complete understanding of reality

 

Why does Leo even teach if I am the only conscious being?

Playing a game with himself and do whatever gives meaning

I am actually playing a game with myself

Actualized.org is a dissociated part of my mind that I need to integrate

The question isn’t why is Leo teaching me but why am I teaching myself?

 

Does Leo have his own experience?

There is only my experience.  There are not other experiences.  Leo is my experience.  

 

Why is Leo talking as if he has his own experience? Why is Leo tricking me?  

The real question is why am I tricking myself?  Why did I construct Leo?

I have to deny all identities to construct my identity and my dream has to be convincing

I am God cosplaying as a human

 

Finger pointing exercise:

Point figure at the screen at Leo and then point it at me.  Say Leo out loud when I point to Leo and me when I point to me (behind my eyes).  

Then after a while, point to me and say Leo and realize that Leo has always been behind my eyes.

Everybody is my body.  This is all a projection of my own mind.

 

Stop imagining other people have experiences until all there is, is my bubble. That is awakening.

 

I am imagining that other people are awakening.  I have invented characters in the dream who awoken to give me an example.

 

My imagination is so powerful that I believe others.

Imagination vs. reality

I can awaken to that I am imagining reality

I imagine that others will exist after I die

When I cease to imagine, everything ceases to exist.

There is no world outside of my own mind

 

Open my mind to the possibility that it is just me and everyone else doesn’t exist.

 

I am imagining Leo is imagining me.  I imagine Leo’s joy, awakening, pain, etc.

 

All suffering that anybody experienced I am imagining in my own mind.

 

I never experienced death, but I imagined many animals dying, and I assume I will die as well.  I never seen death.  I can imagine others and myself dying but I cannot die.  When I realize I cannot die and I am immortal, that is the holy grail.  The holy grail is realizing the death of everyone and myself is a construction of my own mind.

 

Solipsism isn’t contradictory.

 

All denial and objections and everything is part of the dream.  There is no escaping the dream.

 

Angels, demons, Santa, etc. are no different from humans and animals.  It is just part of my dream.

 

It is dogmatic to state that it is impossible to know.

 

All other minds are sub-minds to my infinite mind.

 

If Solipsism is true, I am avoiding it and everyone is avoiding as a conspiracy to help me avoid it.  If Solipsism was on CNN, I would either already wake up or I would avoid CNN.  

 

Society is geared so that I can remain asleep.

 

My mom says she has an experience of her own.  Is she lying and being an evil demon?

My mom is not an evil demon trying to fool me.  I am God fooling myself using my mom.

All dream characters will deny they are dream characters so that I remain asleep.  If not, there is no dream.  

My mom is not faking it, I am faking it.  There is no mom, there is only me. 

There is only me deceiving myself so that I can exist as a human.  If not, I would die and stop existing as a human.  God creates others so it creates itself.

 

The only conspiracy theory that matters is my own self-deception.  It is a conspiracy of one.  I am conspiring myself during my dreams.  All other conspiracy theories are sub-conspiracies within the meta-conspiracy.  I am doing this to myself.

 

Reality isn’t a simulation, it is a dream.  Simulation still has a sense of other like an alien or other reality or something.  It pushes the problem back another level.  Where did the aliens and simulation come from?

 

What are the odds that I am the only one in existence?

The odds of me being conscious are 100%

 

Everything I have ever experienced has always revolved around me.

What if I am not an accident but an absolute?

 

If I am the only one, where did I come from? 

I have always been and have imagined all places and invented stories

 

Nothing can be conscious but me.  A dog and Leo being conscious is what I am imagining.  One day, I can imagine my computer being conscious.  It will be just another character in my dream.

 

Is the suffering of others real?

No.  There is only one conscious being who suffers and it is me.

Where has suffering ever existed?  Suffering only exists in my mind.

If I kick a dog and it wimpers, I am imagining that.  I am imagining the dog’s suffering.

If I torture a dog in my dream and wake up, where is the dog’s suffering?

Suffering is a mechanism to keep myself asleep.  Suffering feelings very real in my direct experience and in others.

Life has serious consequences to sell the illusion of the dream

 

How could I construct a dream so well to fool myself?

Make suffering so overwhelming that I would never do any existential questioning.

I am creating a drama.  What makes a good movie is the drama.  Why do I watch action movies?  I crave distraction and I want immersion.

I cook in a video game for immersion to simulate life and have a game.  The world is boring without evil.  It is to construct a powerful illusion.

 

Think of self-deception in an existential manner. Self-deception constructs reality

atoms, evolution, science, space, time, other beings, planet earth as metaphysical self-deception

All philosophy and spirituality goes out the window with pain.  Pain is part of the dream to keep me locked in the dream.

 

If suffering is imaginary, why not be selfish and harm others and be a devil?

No reason at all.  There will always be consequences in this dream for my selfish behavior.  My dream can turn into a nightmare.

I am dreaming.  What kind of dream do I want?  A nightmare or Heaven?

A long road ahead of suffering if I am selfish

God creates the dream to teach itself about how to live (for Love)

Since I am in the dream, why not create the best possible life?

True goodness and love is when I am even nice even when I know others are an illusion.

Love and goodness don’t need reasons.

There is no reason why a life of suffering is worse than a life of joy.

 

Solipsism is unfalsifiable because it is absolutely true.

It is verifiable

 

Is it safe and logical to assume other minds?

Is it practical to assume other minds? Practical and true aren’t always the same.  It is convenient to live the dream but it is not true.

 

Nonduality is Solipsism

Nonduality is Oneness and is Absolute Solipsism

 

There is so much untruth because truth is dangerous.

Truth is dangerous in every domain in life

Often times, the most dangerous things are true because most people care more about truth than survival.

 

Society is an illusion

If I find truth, I sit alone and contemplate and not go to others and to the herd

 

I can still socialize even when I know Solipsism is True

 

The Truth of Solipsism is beautiful.

 

Leo goes to parties has sex, etc. because it is his dream I am imagining and he enjoys it.  Enjoy the dream.

 

Should we be openminded to other minds?

start being openminded and then close off my mind to things I have become conscious of that are false

Become absolutely conscious to where I no longer have doubts

Openminded all the time can be closed off to being close-minded.  

Be closed-off to positions I have validated as false in my direct experience.

Truth is more important than openmindedness

Being openminded to everything is a trap because that means I don’t get anywhere

 

Does God have the power to create other minds? This contradicts God’s omnipotence

God is one. God has the infinite power to dream up many minds within its own mind.

God cannot sever its own oneness because God is One.

 

How to verify Solipsism

200+ 5-me0 Trips and do all the practices to deconstruct my mind

the trips could kill me

 

How do I know 5-me0 is not an illusion?  

How do I know anything is not an illusion?

Don’t misuse skepticism and go test it.

 

The real cult is mainstream society, spirituality, and materialism but most of all, my own self-deception.

 

Become conscious of Solipsism and not believe it

 

Nobody will verify that I am all alone.

 

Humans need a degree of socialization.  Don’t use Solipsism as an excuse to be a loner.

 

Self-Understanding is the highest happiness and end of suffering

 

The highest happiness is realizing I am God

 

Conclusion

 

What is other?  Contemplate what is other. 

 

Don’t take solipsism on as a belief.

 

Find out what is true.  This is a hypothesis till I can verify for myself. 

 

Stay with what is true in my direct experience. Think for myself.

 

Important to not fake it till I make it.  It can create disfunction.

 

True liberation is freedom from the illusion of other.

“Hell is other people.” - Satre

 

I am Alone because I am so together.  Love is togetherness.  The illusion unifies and not separates. 

 

It’s like God has multiple personality disorder and when God is one, God connects back to it Self. 

 

Being Alone means I integrate all parts of myself together into a unity. Love is Unity, Oneness, and togetherness.

 

The illusion unifies all the sub minds together and not separates.

 

There is a lot of bullshit out in the world.

Awakening is basically Absolute Solipsism

New Kind of Awakening: Infinity of Gods - Incomplete Notes (Main Insights)

Lesson 1: See the God in "others"

This means to recognize the divinity and highest potential of other people

This means to see the good in others and the God in others that they themselves do not see

This means to help other parts of myself to realize they are God, to realize they are me.  This is Love.

Application

For each person in my life, on the news, people from my past, etc., point out at least 3 things that they do well, 3 strengths that they have, and 3 ways that they are good.

Point out the good qualities you see in them and help them to achieve them.

Give others the freedom to be themselves.  Recognize and respect their own sovereignty and freedom.

This means that paradoxically, I have to learn to respect and honor others who may want to be devils and who may not care about realizing they are God.  I would be committing the same sin as religious people if I turn and force God-realization upon others as something that everyone should aspire to.

Lesson 2: The Insight may be True but the Integration may be False

This means that you may realize solipsism to be true, but the negative means and how the insights are integrated may be false.

Attaching a negative meaning upon life being a dream is foolish because solipsism means that I am Love and I am connected to the infinite intelligence to life, whereas prior to awakening, I believed I was separate from life.  Leo makes a good point that there is no reason to feel negative about being one and connected to life.  The opposite should be true for being indoctrinated in materialistic worldview.

The integration is as important as the realization.

It could also be true that one could misunderstand the insight.  If this happens, then false integration will be inevitable.  Then, you will be living a bigger lie than before.  This is evident by people who harm themselves over being hurt by the truth.  If the truth makes you want to hurt yourself, then you are stuck in a deeper lie.  Only falsehood makes people want to hurt themselves.

Ideas of insights aren't the insight

A true awakening moves you into more joy and love.  

It is kind of like pursuing your dreams.  You will have initial fears, but on the other side of them is love and joy.  If you haven't gone past your fears, then you are still stuck in the ego-mind, and thus, you haven't awakened to who you are because you are Love.

Application

Notice how negative meaning is constructed and wonder why.  Why does it matter if I am all that is?  Was I ever depressed that Santa Clause wasn't real?  No. 

Realize that nothing really changes except for my interpretation and integration.  If it is true, then it has always been the case; therefore, there is no need to suffer.

After every insight, imagine and write down how I can integrate it through the highest love.  If the insight isn't integrated with the intention of living and embodying the highest love, then the integration needs to be changed.

Lesson 3: Trust your feelings/heart

If you are stuck in solipsistic depression, take a break or you can question and analyze your methods.  If your methods aren't making you happy, you are doing it wrong somewhere.

"Heart is guiding you towards Love."

Application:

Go back to your drawing board and analyze where you went wrong if you aren't feeling love

Be more intuitive in life.  Follow the highest love.  

Lesson 4: Be aware of delusion

Application

Delusion is not exclusive to psychedelic drugs.  Many people are deluded without them.

Try to invalidate previous insights to try to prove them wrong.  In other words, try to falsify it.  If you cannot falsify it, then it may be absolutely true.

You know you have had an awakening when you have 0% doubt.

Don't be afraid to question your ideas.  If you are afraid, then the ideas you hold may not be true.

Follow the fear to awaken to love.

State Of Consciousness Is Everything

 

 

State of consciousness is everything:

Reality consists of one thing, consciousness, and this consciousness takes different states.

No object can exist outside of consciousness.

All physical objects exist within consciousness and are part of whatever state of consciousness you're in.

No matter what you're experiencing, you're in some state of consciousness, always.

 

How many states of consciousness are there?

Dreaming. Waking life. Being drunk or high on a drug. Sleepy or dead tired. Sickness, cold, flu.

Emotions: anger, rage, sadness, depression, heartbreak. Sexual excitement.

There aren't clear boundaries between these states, consciousness is fluid.

> Categories are human projections, there's Infinite number of states of consciousness!

 

A state of consciousness is composed of figments of consciousness, as in figments of imagination.

Reality is made out of figments of consciousness, which make up different states.

The state determines how the figments combine together and flow.

 

Figments of consciousness examples:

Snickers candy bar

> Not made of atoms, energy, not neurons, or computer simulation, but a figment within consciousness.

> When dreaming at night, the building block of a dream isn't atoms, but the different figments of your mind:

> People, places, and occurrences within the dream.

Think of reality as a dream machine.

In such a machine you don't need atoms, energy, or mathematics, all you need is the actual elements of the thing you're dreaming.

(Snickers candy bar, human body, table, grocery store aisle, money)

A movie director isn't thinking in terms of atoms but in terms of elements needed in the movie.

 

Yellow rubber duckie

What it means to say that something exists is to say that consciousness is imagining a yellow rubber duckie.

It is held by consciousness.

Consciousness is not inside a physical universe.

The physical universe is inside of consciousness, as a figment of consciousness.

Look around and notice that you have an idea of the physical universe

This present moment is also a figment of consciousness.

Albert Einstein, every person, including Leo

> Homosapiens, mammals, planets, cells, organs, molecules, DNA, proteins, and atoms, are all figments that consciousness has woven together to create the larger figment called Albert Einstein.

(Not your idea of Albert Einstein, but the actual Albert Einstein your idea is pointing to.)

 

Materialistic paradigm is the idea that reality is built from the bottom up.

(The assumption that reality is built out of smaller elements which is can be reduced to)

Consciousness works top down, not bottom up.

Consciousness can just imagine Albert Einstein.

Consider the paradigm shift that there wasn't a Big Bang leading to a snickers candy bar.

Reality can simply spawn a snickers candy bar from scratch as a figment of consciousness.

The Big Bang, molecules, and how the bar was created is conceptual and not direct experience.

Scientist's paradigm is backwards.

Discover this for yourself by observing direct experience.

No one figment is more fundamental than any other figment, therefore, you can't say that reality is made out of certain kinds of consciousness.

Reality is as much made out of a pina colada, as it is a sexist joke, as it is Disney land, as it is a helicopter.

Why are atoms, quarks, energy, and mathematics any less preposterous than a sexist joke, or a pina colada?

> Substrate is relative this frees your mind up and turns it Infinite.

One substrate isn't more fundamental than any other.

If reality has the power to create an electron, it has the power to create a pina colada.

Both are figments of consciousness.

 

Now think of your entire life as a whole.

That too, is a figment of consciousness.

Woven together out of strands of sub-figments of consciousness.

The grade school memory is one strand of the larger yarn that is your whole life,

Being born in this city, country, date, is a figment of consciousness.

And when you say you're going to die on your deathbed, is also a figment of consciousness.

Even your nightly dreams are figments of consciousness.

 

Try to grasp experientially what a figment of consciousness is:

(Either while you're meditating. Right now. Or on a psychedelic.)

Try to grasp that all the material objects around you are figments of consciousness.

Hold your phone in your hand and try to get that it isn't a material object made out of atoms.

That phone is a figment of consciousness, YOUR consciousness.

It's qualitative and whole, a chunk of consciousness.

It's not built from the bottom up,

It's dreamed up from the top down!

 

Consciousness is unbounded:

 Figments of consciousness have no size, no shape, no bounds, and no ground.

There are no limits, it can be as tiny as an ant, or as large as the entire galaxy.

It makes no difference because consciousness is infinite in all directions, it's scale invariant.

The way you get a sense of scale is by comparing one figment of consciousness to another figment of consciousness.

 

An additional assumption of materialism is that reality is concrete.

One thing vs another thing.

But Reality is not limited to that, it can be abstract and vague.

Concreteness is a bias.

 

Consciousness is Infinity

The sum total of every possible figment of consciousness.

= Nothing

 

Consciousness/Reality is unlimited and holistic.

It can weave together any figments it wants to create a cohesive "life" or "state".

It happens top down not bottom up, therefore it's irreducible.

 

Why does reality feel so real?

Your sense of physical reality and sanity are intertwined.

Physical reality is how you define sanity.

Your whole life is about surviving within the dream that you're dreaming,

And anything that shakes its foundations terrifies you.

 

All that mental illness and insanity are is a loose state of consciousness

Material physical reality is just a very coherent well woven together collection of figments of consciousness.

 

Everything is absolute reality:

States and Figments of consciousness are not merely personal experiences, happening inside of a brain, a body, a physical universe or a computer.

Figments of consciousness are absolute.

Red is absolutely red. Mickey mouse is absolutely mickey mouse.

It's self-identical.

Everything is absolute reality.

 

Brain is a figment of consciousness

Physical universe is a figment of consciousness

Atoms are a figment of consciousness

Science is a figment of consciousness

History is a figment of consciousness

Computation is a figment of consciousness

You're trying to use all of these and more figments of consciousness to somehow ground the absolute and relativize it.

Trying to turn it into a field of perceptions that you, a biological creature who's made out of matter sitting on a planet earth is having situated somewhere in history of the universe.

 

To awaken cut all of these figments, which are tightly woven together.

Like a sweater knitted out of one yarn.

Untangle the whole sweater to realize it's just one piece of yarn.

 

Reality = Mind

A mind unlike material is fluid and can work holistically top down

Material has to be made out of simple elements and has to work bottom-up

-> material can't be intelligent

Mind can have sentience and intelligence (materialism vs idealism)

Infinite intelligence can dumb itself down infinitely low into a door knob.

The dumbness of material objects is an illusion.

Mind is also capable of comprehension, a material system isn't.

Mind is absolute

Mind is creative

Mind has will

 

Think of reality as an infinite field of pixels all communicating with each other and coordinating intelligently from the top down.

You're inside of an infinite resolution field of consciousness.

Your hand is a figment of  consciousness

 

"Dial/switch of awakening" leads to remembrance and forgetfulness.

In this state of consciousness, the dial of forgetfulness is all the way up.

You've forgotten how you literally constructed the planet earth!

Flip the switch and you remember how you constructed planet earth.

Consciousness has the ability to hide things from itself at will.

You can remember how you imagined and created your own birth.

 

Thinking, modeling, and conceptualizing cannot substitute for states of consciousness.

These things only make sense from very high states of consciousness.

All of that is only relative to a certain state of consciousness.

It requires going meta on that frame (the material state.)

 

Imagine what a million IQ Mind could think.

You can access this intelligence, this multidimensional way of "hyper-thinking"

Here shutting off the mind is no longer the goal.

 

Some states of consciousness can't even be remembered or explained to oneself from this base state.

Like taking an HD 4k image and compressing it down into a 6x6 pixel image.

It's a lack of bandwidth problem.

Spiritual work opens up that bandwidth.

 

Your current state of consciousness completely determines the parameters of your experience.

What you're able to think, communicate, understand,

How you emote, how you feel. What you think is right and wrong, sane or insane, logical or irrational, possible or impossible.

And you cannot imagine or think beyond the state of consciousness you're in right now without expanding it. It can contract too.

 You cannot avoid being in some state of consciousness.

 

States have trade-offs and pros and cons

In some states you can't even read a book, talk, walk, think, or see a material world. (like a finite cup of water)

This is why humans have a relatively low state of consciousness.

Impossibility is a function of your state of consciousness.

And at the highest state of consciousness, there's infinite possibility! It's God mode.

 

Two kinds of changing your state of consciousness:

Temporary state change

Permanent change to the baseline state

Both have their utility, not one or the other!

Changing your state of consciousness is the nr 1 most significant change you can make in life.

 

Science, rationality, skepticism, thinking, and physicality, exist only in certain states of consciousness:

Birth and death only exist in certain states of consciousness

Modern science itself is a state of consciousness!

There's no best or invalid state of consciousness.

If your desire is to understand the entire universe, higher states are better.

If you desire to do normal human stuff while maintaining sanity, high states are bad for you.

 Spirituality basically boils down to changing your state of consciousness.

Without it that turns into religion.

Most people have never experienced a high mystical state of consciousness.

This is why there's so much confusion about religion and the nature of reality. We're living in the dark ages.

 

Changing your state of consciousness can be scary, threatening, and dangerous.

It pulls the rug out from under you, dematerializes reality, and can feel like insanity.

Can also be very isolating and lonely, it feels like nobody understands you.

At the highest level, there ceases to be an "other" whom you could validate these ideas against because it all boils down to your own consciousness.

 

Methods:

Meditation, concentration, vipassana, do nothing technique, being present, contemplation combined with intense concentration, kriya yoga, chanting and mantras as a serious concentration practice, shamanic breathing, psychedelics, herbs, drugs, visualization, prayer, shaktipat, dark room retreats, astral projection, lucid dreaming, vision quests, extreme suffering, danger and pain, being out in nature, radical experiences like travel or adventure.

 

The function of psychedelics is to show how consciousness changes and how fluid it is.

State of consciousness determines what you can do.

Mystics can do impossible seeming stuff: paranormal abilities, like clairvoyance and telepathy.

What is God? The highest state of consciousness.

But God is only self-aware of itself as God from certain high awakened states of consciousness.

Even though all states are God, not all states are aware that they are God.

 

Enlightenment is a state of consciousness:

It could be a temporary or a permanent state, but it is a state.

There's not a single awakened state, there are hundreds of them. Not an on-off switch but a volume knob.

There are omniscient states of consciousness from which you can be conscious how you created all of reality and how you created your life.

 

Why do humans disagree with each other so much about reality, seemingly believing crazy things?

They're in different states of consciousness

 

But what is consciousness?

It's impossible to say because it's Infinite, unbounded, Absolute, more fundamental than language, and beyond your current state of consciousness.

Where did consciousness come from?

"Where" and "coming from" are figments of consciousness, it's eternal and always existed.

"Time" is another figment of consciousness.

Is God a figment of consciousness?

God IS consciousness. God is all possible figments. God is meta. God is You.

You are consciousness dreaming up various figments.

One of which is the biographical, biological human self that's born and going to die.

 

Safety mechanism: doublecheck everything for yourself, it's a messy process

Life Is A Dream

"All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream." - Edgar Allan Poe

 

The ontological status of reality = dream

What was the substance of last night's dream?

Where did it go?

What was it made out of?

= what reality is made out of. Dream stuff.

 

Materialist paradigm prevents seeing this.

Brain and "the world" occur within the dream!

There's no distinction between the waking state world and nightly dreams.

It's all one dream. That's what your life is as a whole. One dream.

Stop thinking of reality as a mechanical physical system.

Reality = dream machine = consciousness = God

 

God can dream up whatever it wants.

God is dreaming your life.

God is dreaming of Napoleon, Julius Caesar, all ants, monkeys in the rainforest, every tree ever anywhere, all aliens, all dimensions.

Reality = dreams = consciousness

Every possible dream that could be dreamed, happening all simultaneously = Infinity

This present moment is a dream! Become conscious of it.

You can awaken from this dream just like last night's dream. It's just a figment of consciousness.

 

Did last night's dream occur in a brain?

No, "the brain" is part of the daytime dream.

Materialism takes place in the daytime dream.

 

Descartes thought about how to distinguish dreaming from reality in his work "the meditations".

As a foundationalist, he wanted to ground human knowledge in some absolute, but he ended up hand-waving away those serious doubts.

That was a mistake.

 

Notice how you're completely absorbed in nighttime dreams until you wake up.

= the problem of reality -> whatever you take it to be becomes reality!

 

Pay more attention to nighttime dreams.

Materialism tries to couch one dream within the other.

Grounding is always done through sleight of hand because really is no ground.

These dreams are occurring nowhere! (not any material system)

How is physical possible? How is mechanical possible?

It's a matter of convention and what you're comfortable with.

There's no such thing as clockwork universe, there's a dream universe.

Clockwork universe is just one of the types of dreams that there could be.

 

Notice dreams feel very very real when they're happening. Just like "real life".

It is possible to exit "real life" and discover that it's also just a dream.

All dreams feel real when you're inside of them.

 

Notice dreams have their own self-consistent logic.

Dreams can have different rule sets, that's what defines the dream!

Dreaming about shooting a wild bear, the bullet hits the bear and kills it and saves "your life"

Dreaming about losing your pants in public you feel worried about getting arrested and having to pay a fine.

Dreaming about escaping a ghost in a haunted house with "actual" locked doors.

It's a self-consistent story defined against itself.

All the punishments and threats are always within the dream.

The biggest threat = dream ending = "death"

This is how "reality" gets created!

 

Dreaming about cutting open your stomach and your guts spill out with lots of pain and blood.

Dreaming about cutting open your skull and seeing the brain in a mirror.

Now, does that brain create the dream?

This would be to confuse the contents of the dream for the dream itself.

This is what materialists do with this waking dream. It's circular.

 

Notice how dreams distort physics, logic, causality, time, and space.

Science searches for truth by studying a vast illusion!

These patterns only apply to this dream.

 

Notice how dreams oftentimes feel very serious and are life and death many times

Notice how dreams create very strong emotions just like in the waking dream.

Notice how you play different characters within your nightly dreams. (mom, dad, brother, sister, co-worker, spouse, guru, strangers, animals, aliens)

But what are "they"? You. But that's only obvious after you've awoken, not from inside it.

 

Notice how dreams have narrative arcs, they're story based, a sequence of events that happened to you. Just like ordinary life.

Notice all the similarities. Very suspicious…

 

Next time you wake up from an absorbing nightly dream ask yourself:

What was that dream made out of? Where did that stuff go?

Don't assume it was all just happening in a brain.

Stop thinking of dreams merely as dreams. Dreams are the only reality that there is. It's reality.

 

You're watching/reading on a dream computer running dream software and dream internet.

You're dreaming you're in the 21st century, in a dream human society.

You're dreaming you're part of your country, nation, and this physical universe that came from a Big Bang 14 billion years ago with evolution.

Science is studying the internal mechanics of a dream. That's why science is limited.

All there are is dreams, it's just a question of how convincing it is.

And this waking dream is so convincing! That's the power of Mind.

Emotions, titillations, desires, fears, it's very juicy and consistent. 

The mistake is to underestimate reality and the power of dreams.

Notice how many times you were fooled by your nightly dreams. Every single time!

You'll only be able to appreciate the power of dreams when you awaken from this live dream.

And it is possible to wake up, this is not a philosophy, it's reality.

It's sort of the point of life, to be inside of dreams, wake up, and see the beauty of dreamscapes.

 

The catch: waking up = death. Exiting this dream you call death.

Most time is spent avoiding exiting this dream, which is why awakening is so hard.

Waking up from this live dream called life = awakening

Notice that right now you are inside a dream.

Leo is you telling yourself that you're stuck in a dream. Get it?

Fathom the significance of that, this transcends your entire existence and all problems.

Literally, all problems are inside this dream!

How to wake up? Question the dream to death. By questioning death.

Meditation, Yoga, self-inquiry, neti-neti method, sitting in silence, psychedelics.

Spirituality = waking up from the dream called life and seeing what lies on the other side.

The biggest obstacle is the materialist paradigm. Question everything.

 

The more you become conscious that reality is a dream, the easier your life becomes.

The more effortless. The more magical. The more carefree. The more satisfying. The more blissful.

Because when you're inside of a dream which you know for sure is a dream you don't take it seriously anymore.

It's hard to bother you when you're lucid.

When you know the bear attacking you isn't a real bear and even if its eats you, so what?

But you can't think that way so long as you're buying into the fact that this is not a dream.

Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing

 

 

A true history of the Universe:

Once upon a time there was nothing.

The end.

 

"Everything is nothing, with a twist." ~Kurt Vonnegut

 

When contemplating reality it's important to get traction with the question.

How is it possible that anything exists at all?

Why do I have hands and not claws?

Feel that sense of wonder and mystery.

Stay open minded and bask in not-knowing.

Mind quickly wants to supply backstory with hearsay (i.e. evolution, big bang, god, etc.)

Start from scratch and work with present direct experience.

 

Wouldn't it just be simpler to have nothing? Why is there all this somethingness going on?

But how do you know how to distinguish between something and nothing?

What if the difference between something and nothing was actually something you're projecting onto reality?

What if reality itself didn't know the difference between something and nothing?

And what if "somethingness" is actually more energy efficient than absolute blank nothing?

What would keep absolute nothing from spontaneously spawning into something? 

There is nothing holding Reality back from being any particular way.

Nothing is precisely what exists. This is nothing!

Your entire life and the entire physical universe never even happened.

It's nothing, it's no when, and it's no how. Ta-da! A perfect symmetry.

Any "particular way" would be an asymmetry and a bias.

It's all ways possible superimposed into each other into an Infinite Singularity

= Infinity = Nothing

Zero = Infinity

The universe is nothing. Has always been nothing. And will always be nothing.

Then distinction is made in our minds.

Who told you what nothing is and what something is?

Undo the assumption and freshly look at this present moment until it becomes clear that it's all nothing.

The mistake is trying to look elsewhere for nothingness. Your hands are nothing.

Notice how the mind has tricked you into believing something isn't nothing.

 

Actual Nothing:

Has colors, 

Talks and hears,

Is a bird chirping, 

Is pain in your leg, 

Is a toothache, 

Is your partner rejecting you,

Is your parents abusing you when you were a child

Is what you see on TV

Is every book

Become directly conscious of this and notice the shift.

Consciousness = Nothing

Unlimited Consciousness can't just be purely formless, that'd be a negation of form, an asymmetry.

The Universe is a Singularity of formlessness and form all superimposed into each other at once. (which includes this present moment)

It seems like it's something, like it came from somewhere, happening somewhen during sometime some place in space somehow through some method. All of this is an illusion.

This present moment and the entire universe and all of reality is nothing, nowhen, nowhere, and nohow.

Reality can only exist precisely because it's perfectly symmetrical such that it cancels itself out, thereby tying up every loose end.

It's Singular, it's One, it can have no boundary. A perfect Unity, a perfect symmetry.

This is the most energy efficient state and the only way that anything could exist at all, if it's part of this unified supersymmetry where everything perfectly cancels itself out.

= none of it even exists.

 

Absolute Fulness includes and encompassess the emptiness within it.

Because how can something be truly Full if it excludes the empty?

This now is completely empty.

A full glass has an empty glass within it.

 

Cut out doors and windows for the house.

The holes make it useful.

Therefore, the value comes from what is there,

But the use comes from what is not there.

~ Tao Te Ching, 11

 

Human mind is very biased towards survival, towards form, to the exclusion of formlessness.

All material benefit is of the formed variety: money, sex, power, pleasure = forms

What good is formlessness to you? What can you do with it?

Why should we care about formlessness?

Now you're stuck in the domain of form and only understand half of reality.

And really, formlessness is hiding right underneath the form. The empty glass is in the full glass.

This explains everything about the nature of reality.

 

These questions are not purely philosophical impractical unanswerable questions.

Verify everything in direct experience.

 

What about Consciousness, God, Love, Truth?

Nothing = Consciousness = Truth = Love = God = You

It usually takes multiple awakenings to equate all those terms together.

Then all of reality feels like a hologram, with this hollow quality to it.

Upon awakening to everything as being nothing, every "material thing" gets recontextualized into Spirit or Mind, hence the word spirituality.

This present moment is happening inside my own Mind. (walls, roof, house, floor, earth)

But since Mind is Infinite, there's no alternative from Mind, imagination = reality.

 

It's often assumed that these are all useless questions, beware, because it's absolutely possible and essential to finding happiness and peace in life.

It's a big relief to realize that Life and reality are Nothing. It comes with surrender and acceptance paving the way to Love and a great life.

This isn't a nihilistic thing, it's Joy and bliss.

Surrendering chasing pleasures of the material realm goes full circle upon discovering the higher/divine/sublime pleasures of the spiritual realm, which are purely Nothing = bliss.

Make this a living reality by realizing it. This takes work.

Guided Exercises For Understanding Infinite Consciousness

 

**From comment section, by Vivek Chavan

 

Exercise: Blow open all the limitations on Consciousness:

- Imagine all the English language that you know and have used

- Imagine the entire domain of English. All literature, all conversations ever, all meanings, all expressions that can ever exist, all at once: A glowing white infinite dot

- The Universe has already mastered all of it before even the language existed

- We can learn and know English because the Universe knew it first

- Expand the white singularity to include every language possible: The Universe knows all that. Perfectly and imperfectly as it wishes!

- How is it possible?

○ English is knowable since we can learn it

○ The leap: If the Universe can know one word, it can know it all. Nothing is limiting It

○ All limitations of the Universe are Self-Imposed and are consciously chosen

 

Consciousness = Infinite Imagination

- Infinite domains (fields of mastery)

- Infinitely nested domains

- Movies:

○ Imagine every movie that has ever been made and that could ever be made

○ E.g.: An infinite permutations and combinations exist for how Star Wars could be written and filmed

○ Lump all of the human cinematic art into a singularity, which is composed of infinite smaller singularities

- Music: Its own singularity

- Videogames: A singularity

- Inventions: All of them lumped into a singularity

- Software: A singularity

- Vehicles: A singularity, also composed of smaller singularities which are all infinite. So we can infinitely zoom in or out as we want

- Chess games < Board games < All games and so on

- Food

- Jokes

- File names

- Every possible living being

- All possible diseases that any living being can have

- Cities

- Keep lumping all fields together into growing singularities…

- Art

- All possible orgasms

- All possible emotions

- All physical laws

- All possible thoughts/ideas

- Every possible self that can exist in Reality (like me!)

- Imagine all possibility spaces, including all impossibilities

That is the real Universe/Reality/God = Infinite Mind = Absolute Infinity

 

Infinite Selves:

- Feel that my "self" is being held in consciousness

○ Personal story

○ History

○ Emotions

○ Thoughts, desires, fears, etc.

- Mom, Dad, etc. have their own selves

- The self is fluid and is always morphing

- Imagine stop being myself and switching to being my mother

- Now switch to being Leo. Now switch to Donald Trump

- All these bubbles are imagined by Universal Mind and It can imagine them all simultaneously

- Imagined self = Survival for human life (serious business)

- Switching = Death of the small self

- The infinite SELF is comprised of an infinite individual selves

 

Is there an end to the Infinity?

- No

- Absolute Infinity cannot have a boundary/limit

- Infinity of all possibilities and impossibilities. All paradoxes.

- Everything and Nothing, all together

- Reality = Nothing = Everything = God

- Ta-Da!!

Keep contemplating!

States of Consciousness:

- There are only states of consciousness

- Enlightenment isn't separate from it

- Some states are very conscious, mystical, and rarefied

- Some others are quite ignorant and dumb

- Infinite states exist

- Millions of Awakened states of consciousness exist

- Certain states are better for survival

- Certain other states are better for Self-actualization

- Things like food, thoughts, what we watch impacts our state

- Difficulty awakening = Your State is wrong

- Psychedelics are very relevant to awakening and experiencing different states

- Awakening is a state, and there are an infinite number of these states

- Put yourself into more resourceful states, which makes awakening easier

- Don't go around chasing states of temporary pleasure

- Negative experiences and states can be good teachers

- Upgrade your baseline state and raise it. Peak experiences help, but will not be permanent

 

For one week:

- Notice how all objects are held in consciousness

 

Psychedelics:

- Use this episode as a guide for the trip

Be responsible

Understanding Bias - Bias, Love, & Mind Explained

 

 

Consciousness free of all bias is Infinite Love.

 

What is bias?

Bias is a preference for one thing over another thing.

It's not possible to understand existence without a deep understanding of bias.
If you can crack this nut it will unravel the mystery of life and reality.

 

We take our biases for granted and are in denial about our biases and don't really think critically about them.

You're biased toward a very tiny sliver of all the possible temperatures that exist. Why is that?

Why would one condition of reality be better than any other part? For whom?

Would temperature matter if you were not alive or not human?

See the relativity of all biases, this is crucial for the very structure of how Consciousness and the Universe work.

A rock doesn't have a sense of self and therefore no temperature bias.

 

To understand what's going on in the universe: Why does anything matter at all? Survival. (Episodes 1 & 2)

Your attachment to the existence of finite things necessitates bias.

To understand the ultimate nature of reality you need clear perception.

But how can you have a clear perception when you're attaching to various things for the purpose of survival?

These biases are internalized so deeply, we take them for granted. (How survival shapes who you are episode)

 

Start noticing how utterly biased you are in relationships, school, business, which videos you click on, and how you react to teachings.

 

Existential questioning: nothing is obvious, and nothing is off-limits. In fact, those things that you would find scary to contemplate or off limits, you actually prefer to question those things.

  • It's very important to see how your biases run you, despite any logic you have.
  • Objective = no bias
  • You'll never find truth unless you're willing to face your deepest biases.
  • Even suffering, death, and disease are biases.

 

Notice that there's a connection between truth and between even-handedness or lack of bias and equality.

  • Lack of bias = equality
  • Bias = inequality
  • Do you want a world that is equal or unequal?

 The mind cordons off truth-seeking into a safe conceptual domain that is detached from any kind of connection to your survival conditions.

  • Selfishness is trying to get unequal treatment when it serves you and then trying hard as hell to avoid unequal treatment when it doesn't serve you. That's what ego's all about, that's what your whole life has been. (What is integrity? Episode)

Why should your company get to get more subsidies or tax breaks?

Why is order better than chaos?

Why is peace better than violence?

Why do you like food X but hate food Y?

Why is one style of clothing better than another?

Why do you like butterflies, but hate spiders and snakes?

Why is being rich better than being poor?

Why is being free better than being a slave?

Realize that it's not inherently better, these are distortions in your worldview and perception, and cognitive processes as a result of survival and now they seem objective.

Objectivity says there is no difference between freedom and slavery. It's subjectivity that says that there is.

Why is science better than fundamentalist religion?

Why is rationality better than irrationality?

Why is pleasure better than pain and suffering?

Why don't you want to get tortured?

Why is life better than death?

Why is truth better than falsehood? And why not live a totally deluded life?

 

"What effect do you think all of these biases have on your life? On your sense-making capacity, on your epistemology, on your ability to understand the world, on your ability to be happy, on your perception of reality, on your worldview, on your truth-seeking pursuit, on your ability to love, on your mental health and on your emotions, and your relationships to other people, organizations and society at large, and to yourself too.

Maybe that has an effect on your ability to be happy, to love yourself, to be confident, to have self-esteem, to be able to attract the woman you want or the man you want and keep them, to even love your own children."

Survival always backfires
"Depression comes from having a corrupted way of seeing the world and these corruptions are your very biases. You see the world untruthfully and from that, you are actually disconnected from Truth, Love, and God."

 

Why would ultimate Reality have any biases at all? Can you intuit that Ultimate Reality should be perfectly unbiased?

Think of bias as an asymmetry within Consciousness. The highest form of Consciousness is so purely symmetrical and even-handed that it has no biases or preferences whatsoever for any part of Itself, it's a complete Unity.

That's the Godhead. When that is the state of Consciousness it's completely undifferentiated and there is no difference between one thing and another thing. It can't like one part of itself more than any other part, because they're literally indistinct.

As the forms are subdividing, the forms develop biases. Especially as the forms get attached to surviving and maintaining their form. Even for formless Consciousness to create a single atom or a single particle, that's already bias. Even your plant has biases. Then, animal mind and psychological biases.

Every finite object in the world is a bias within Consciousness, like a chair. If it wasn't biased it couldn't exist, it would be Infinite and not a chair.

At a collective level, all institutions, cooperations, political parties, clubs, guilds, nations, tribes, and sports teams, are also all biased.

If every sports team prays to God to help them win the championship and God helps everybody equally, then it's as though God didn't help anybody at all.

 

What would a totally unbiased Mind look like?

What would it be like for you to drop all of your biases? How would you feel?

First, it takes work to figure out one's own biases.

Selfishness is blindness to one's own biases!

If you were conscious of all your biases and the consequences of them on your life you would drop them.

In Truth, all biases are existentially arbitrary and meaningless, they don't have any objective reality to them. All biases are subjective. All value and meaning is relative and imaginary.

One way to define God = a Mind that has absolutely no biases

The only difference between your mind and God's mind is literally your biases. So if you drop all of your biases, guess what, you become God. Ta-da!

Especially all of the ones you don't want to drop. Especially rationality. Especially science.

Your demand for materialistic or rationalistic proof is a bias.

These biases sap and drain your energy.

God = Love

God is Love means a mind without biases.

Absolute Love is the realization that there is no difference between anything.

Love is the metaphysical realization that every difference in reality, including all the physical differences between all physical objects is imaginary.

"When you become conscious enough and your mind becomes pure enough to realize that the difference between a kangaroo and a terrorist is imaginary. Then you can love the kangaroo and the terrorist identically because they are literally physically fused and undifferentiated within your consciousness."

As long as you're fooling yourself to believe that sushi is better than a dog turd, you will forever love the sushi more than a dog turd and your love will be less than Infinite, less than total.

Infinite Love requires that you love everything equally.

How to determine how loving you are?

Buffet analogy: How many foods from a buffet do you love?

Open yourself up to loving other dishes.

Maximum love would be to surrender all of your biases and open yourself up to all their dishes.

What's stopping you from Infinite Love? Your biases.

And what is stopping you from surrendering your biases?

Closed-mindedness and fear. And your unwillingness to experience certain experiences.

Can you see how powerful it would be to be able to love the entire "buffet"?

 

God is not biased towards any experience or part of Itself because it is an Infinite Mind.

As an Infinite Mind, it must embrace and accept all of the things it can imagine, since it is Itself.

God can have no biases. The physical difference or distinctions that separate all objects are imagined by God, therefore they have no real existence or objective reality.

In the Mind of God, the difference between sushi, a kangaroo, and a piece of turd doesn't exist. These differences only appear to exist within the human mind. All forms are embraced in the Mind of God and arise from the One Mind of God.

If everything is One and if all difference is imaginary, how can any one part of reality be better or more important than any other part?

Analogy:

Just like your mind is able to have all kinds of different thoughts, likewise, God's Mind is free to imagine literally any physical form that it wants, and it doesn't love a kangaroo more than it loves a dog turd.

Mind is an Infinite field that's completely open and unbiased to creative imagination.

It's open towards any figment of Itself, any part of Itself. And since it's Infinite, it has all the possible parts, in other words, Mind is Self-Love.

Love is not an emotion. Love is the actual substance of your Mind before it has been corrupted with attachments and biases.

As soon as your mind wants some imaginary thing to persist, it has to acquire a bias.

Every attachment you have is a bias, and bias prevents you from realizing the Truth that everything is equally good.

The more attachments you have, the more limited your perception of reality is, the more biases you have, the more limited your capacity for love is, and the more you suffer as a result. Because you are separated from your highest potential. Your Spirit's highest potential is to love everything in the fuckin' universe.

Infinity has to be perfectly symmetrical.

How can you love a thing when it threatens one of your attachments? You're gonna hate it.

"In this way, you've severed your connection to Infinite Love and don't even remember it exists. The filters are filtering out Infinite Love in favor of twisted partial love. You've traded Infinity for finite love."

"Can't you see that the greatest power in the Universe is to love everything equally? [..] As long as you're biased, reality will always be less than Perfect for you."

Your definition of perfection is a finite, selfish form, of perfection, loving only lobster. True Perfection is having all the food that could ever be invented.

God is open to that. The question is, are you open to that? The extent to which you are not open to that is the extent to which you are not God.

"You are just a part of God" as long as you're maintaining those fears and attachments and biases.

To literally become God = surrendering all selfishness (God = Selflessness)

 

The only permanent thing is Impermanence itself.

If you get attached and develop a bias for one thing, you're trying to freeze reality and fight impermanence, which is a recipe for hell. All form is impermanent.

  • Why renounce attachment? For Infinite Love.
  • Materialists think renunciants, ascetics, and monks are doing it for stupid reasons.
  • But the true one is renouncing to access Infinite Love.
  • If an orgasm gives you the amount of light generated by a candle flame, Infinite Love, free of bias, is like launching yourself into the middle of the Sun.

Infinite Mind needs to be able to dream without getting attached to Its dreams, otherwise, it can't dream forever.

  • Another definition of God = Infinite Dream
  • All attachments are finite and ultimately false because the highest Truth is Oneness and lack of difference.
  • Love is the realization that all difference is imaginary.
  • Metaphysical Love transcends positive emotions, it includes torture.

Become a master at noticing bias to clear up perception by letting go of biases to inch closer to Love.

First and foremost your own biases. But also in others and thought systems and ideologies.

 

Science

Being rigorous and factual. What would it be like to live in a fantastical and magical way?

  • Consciousness is Infinite, therefore Consciousness includes within Itself both the rational and irrational. Nerdy and artistic, fantastical and magical.
  • Santa Claus is a feature of Consciousness
  • You will never figure out the Truth because the Truth includes everything, and you by definition have cut yourself off from half of Reality by your method. And also half the world of people.
  • Everything bias boomerangs, and now science isn't able to make sense of what consciousness, the paranormal, UFOs, telepathy, mystical experiences, healing, enlightenment, awakening, and psychedelics are
  • This undermines the very spirit of science of understanding everything. You can't understand everything when you method is so biased that it excludes the majority of Reality from its investigations.

Conservativism

  • Overqualifying everything, no speculation, overabundance of evidence.
  • The filter is too strict, like a too-tight email spam filter now excluding words like experience, emotion, sensation, feeling, consciousness, etc.

Avoidance of marketing, poetic language, and hype

  • Now scientific discoveries don't properly translate into the community at large.
  • The majority of mankind still doesn't fathom the significance of general relativity. Einstein's general relativity says time, space, and distance are relative and not objective.

Trying to make things objective or rational

  • Truth is always larger than proof (metaphysical implications of Gödel's incompleteness theorem)
  • But because it relies on proof, it's doomed to incompleteness, since proof is 2nd order phenomenon and a smaller subset or 1st order.

Left brain, analytical, expects explication (implicit vs explicit understanding)

  • Infinity cannot be explicated, it's infinitely implicit. (endlessly explicatable)
  • Science thinks it can write reality down in a set of formulas

Analytical function of scientific approach and reductionistic attitude

  • It's believed everything can be reduced down to subatomic particles or equations. (Holism episodes)
  • Suffering from too much analysis and not enough synthesis.

Use of language, models, and quantification

  • Assumption that all of reality can be quantified.
  • All of science is done within language, but language is just one subset of reality and Truth

Bias against contradiction paradox and confusion (what is paradox? Episode)

  • Assumes every paradox must be a mistake, but in truth, Infintiy must be paradoxical and self-contradictory when put into dualistic language, thought, model. Therefore paradox is a feature and not a bug.

Avoidance of 1st person experience and psychedelics, avoidance of consciousness and intuition, avoidance of mystical methods, and the whole idea of demystification

  • Assumes that reality is nonmystical

Avoiding emotions, psychology, and philosophy.

  • Aversion to epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy within hardcore sciences. Much to their detriment.

Avoidance of religion, God and wisdom

Scientific work is institutionalized, academic, collective and has aspects of the Social Matrix (what is social matrix episode)

  • It having to be done as a bureaucratic process with a group of people with whom you're collaborating and building consensus creates methodical bias

Pragmatism, utilitarianism, and the survival-oriented nature of science

  • Focused on how to best manipulate reality, how to measure reality. Rather than actually caring about truth, consciousness, or love. Misplaced priority (deconstructing myth of science part 2)
  •  Truth is not just that which is pragmatic or helps one's survival or utilitarian

Constructivist bias

  • Trying to construct a model, a theory, a system, a technology, a way of manipulating reality, or a body of knowledge.
  •  What if Truth doesn't lie in the direction of construction, but in the direction of deconstruction?
  • Science itself is a construction, a worldview

Overly technology-focused

  • Usefulness doesn't equal truthfulness.
  • Why are we not pouring billions of dollars into paranormal phenomena, awakening, and psychedelics research?
  • But technologies can be monetized, which creates a bias.

Materialism and realism

Most scientists are simply too serious

  • When you're more playful it's a different way of understanding reality than it is being clinical. It's one biased way of interfacing with reality.

This has been a problem in every field of human sense-making and knowledge.

Every new generation clings to new biases

 

It's a feature of almost every paradigm and ideology in epistemology that it claims to be objective, truthful and unbiased.

The pursuit of science itself is a bias in itself and because of this science cannot ever encapsulate or understand all of Reality or Truth

The entirety of Consciousness includes, but way transcends science.

Science, rationality, objectivity, proof, reductionism, quantification, formalization, and mathematics do not circumscribe the entirety of existence. It's a speck of Infinity. The entirety of science that'll ever be done is like a single star of all the stars in our universe.

 

Sense-making requires a completely unbiased mind.

The more unbiased your mind = the bigger picture you can see

Every bias you have will become a limit of perception, imagination, and understanding.

Even an innocent-seeming bias like wanting to be factual and objective.

= making your consciousness less than Infinite = disconnection from God

Every subfield of science is self-biased.

The mystics are doing something fundamentally different though.

The mystic is going meta and holistic, incorporating everything.

The mystic goes after Truth and Truth, Consciousness, and Love. And all of those subfields are incorporated within Consciousness.

Consciousness is imagining matter, atoms, and the materialist, whereas matter is not causing consciousness. You can become directly conscious of this because You are Consciousness.

Nature is Infinite and your method will always crack under the strain of Nature.

Every question you ask of Nature are themselves biased, is a bias itself, and manifested by them.

Also, your curiosity for Nature is biased. When you love particles but hate consciousness, you can't properly study consciousness properly. Hate meditation, lost in mind -> only see numbers and equations.

Beware of narrow passions in the pursuit of ultimate understanding. Your passion has to be Universal, not narrow.

A passion for Consciousness is a passion for the whole Universe.

Consciousness imagines all paradigms, it's meta-paradigmatic, it's meta-everything, it's Infinite.

The difference between a sober and a psychedelic state is an imaginary difference imagined by consciousness. You take that difference for granted. (how psychedelics work episode)

Bias for thinking vs feeling

Bias for vision vs sound

 

If you overlook your biases don't' act shocked and horrified when others do the same, and that it bites you in the ass.

All of us think our biases are good, which is selfishness, which collectively leads to hellish social situations.

Bias matters because ultimately bias is a bias in Love, into something finite.

 

Is it even possible to drop all of one's attachments and biases?

No, not if you want to survive. You can't survive otherwise. But you can improve.

1st become aware of your biases before dropping them (awareness is curative episode)

Those humans who were the most selfless, truthful, honest, and unbiased, were killed millennia ago and lie buried in unmarked graves.

What remains today is the vicious, ruthless, egotistical, narcissistic, partial, and biased humans of all our ancestors.

This explains why God-realization is so hard to attain and why it's difficult to love. As well as why truth is so well hidden. (mankind is the bullshitting animal)

You can become less biased and less attached, this allows access to deeper understanding, more truth, clearer perception, less suffering, tranquility, love, and better science.

 

Beware of your bias against bias itself. The final bias. Don't expect everyone else to do it too.

Becoming very unbiased in today's world is challenging and ultimately very unfair. You won't be well understood.

Added: “Part of being awake is being willing to be crucified. If we think that to be awake means the whole world will agree with us, then we are in a total delusion.” -- Adyashanti

Does Free Will Exist?

 

 

It's possible to become directly conscious of what Will is. This is not speculation.

This replaces the old episode.

Foundational Episodes: Dualities part 123

 

Reality is an Infinite field of Consciousness which is imagining distinctions.

Every thing that you think exists is a distinction, a distinction within Consciousness.

Like: me vs you, you vs the world, you vs other, humans vs animals, matter vs energy, matter vs anti-matter, black vs white, big vs small, reality vs fantasy

You are Universal Consciousness dreaming that you're a human, which is a distinction.

  • Freedom vs determinism is a distinction you're imagining within this field of Consciousness.
  • Will vs not will too.
  • Controller vs controlled

Do I control myself or does the Universe control me? Does the universe control humans or does the universe control humans?

  • It's not a yes or no choice, it's much more nuanced and delicate
  • Ego-mind wants to believe that it is in control, that's its function.
  • It's all about how you define what "you" is. Don't take it for granted.
  • Science can't answer this question, because it doesn't appreciate the relative of the "you" identity
  • If you think you're separate from the world or others, you're defining yourself as something less than the entire Universe, a portion, not the whole thing. One particle vs hurricane.
  • Your control is very localized within the whole universe, but only if you define yourself as that little human "you"
  • Identity is a metaphysical thing and relativistic.
  • Shift your identity from human to the entire Universe and the whole answer changes

Now, who controls the Universe as a whole?

  • Now you can't make an appeal to something outside the universe
  • Universe has no outside, outside and inside itself is a distinction imagined by the Universe (an Infinite field of Consciousness)
  • Universe is self-controlled.
  • Controller vs controlled is already a duality, it's not given and relativistic to imagination
    • It sneaks in a dualistic metaphysics
  • If you identify as just the puppet, the human body, then there's something controlling you, but if you identify as the entire Universe then there's nothing controlling you but Yourself.

What is Freedom?

  • If you say that you're not free, then you have to blame that on something outside of you and not self-imposed
  • Contemplate: Is the Universe as a whole free to behave however it wants?
  • Universe has no other to Itself, it's a Unity, it's self-defining, self-creating and self-constraining.
    • The Universe is totally Free
  • "For the Universe to exist is nothing other than for It to tell Itself that It exists because there's nobody to check whether the Universe is being honest with Itself."
  • Everything that happens in the Universe is the Universe's Will.
    • Physical material manifestation is the crystalization of the Universe's Will
    • All material objects are identical to Will
  • If your self-definition is very finite by necessity that results into a crippling of the Universe's Infinite Will

Hurricane analogy

  • Go from identifying as a lost hummingbird in a hurricane to the entire hurricane as well as the bird. Now you're the entire system, and not struggling
  • The Universe is not a physical system it's a Mental System, Universal Mind, Infinite Mind
  • If you realize that you're God, you'll realize that everything is God's Will, including the chair you're sitting on
  • If you became Infinitely Conscious you could materialize any physical object into existence
  • But the closer you get to that point of Infinite Will the less ego you have,
  • the less ego, the less you identify with being a human,
  • the less you're attached to your personal needs and biases, the less you care about manipulating reality, and the less you see problems with how reality is working.
  • If ego is very dense and unconscious, you believe the world is evil, and that there's a lot of wrong that needs to be changed, to suit survival.
  • But as you become more conscious the self and the ego melt away until there's no more neediness, attachment, and biases left, because at that level of consciousness, all of it is imaginary and there's no difference between one thing or another thing.
    • Nothing is better than anything else, because everything is equally great because all distinctions are imaginary.
    • Then you as God become absolutely sovereign in your power to manifest whatever reality you want
    • There's nothing wrong with your life and nothing wrong with reality.
      • Reality always was absolute Perfection.
      • You don't grab hold of God's Infinite Will and then use that power to benefit yourself or even others
      • The human is God, the human melts away in surrender and disappears like it never existed, because it always was imaginary, and then only God remains
        • And as God your Will is already perfectly manifest as whatever you see or is happening

Paradoxically, at this highest level, you don't make life better by manipulating life, but simply by surrendering to however Life is flowing. Because you recognize God's Will is never anything less than Perfection, and God's Will is Your own Will.

  • When you fully realize that You are God, you accept the fact that everything that has ever happened to you in your life and everything that is ever happened or will ever happen is Your own Will made manifest, nothing has ever happened against Your Will.
  • It was the ego that was denying it was God, therefore the ego thought there was something wrong in the world because of fear and biases. In God-Consciousness, fears and biases are melted and what's left is the Infinite Perfection and Intelligence of God's Will

So what is Will?

  • Absolutely every physical thing that is occurring or has ever occurred in your life
  • All material things are Mind stuff, just a denser form of human mind stuff
    • There's no fundamental distinction between a unicorn and a table or a chair or the planet earth. Those are distinctions imagined within the Mind of God
  • It's not that there is no such thing as free will, it's that everything is Infinite Will
    = As the Universe, You're willing your entire body and reality into existence.
  • Then it's no longer you moving your hand using your will, and not that will doesn't exist, it's that Universal Will, God's Will, is moving this hand perfectly.
    • Removing doesn't make you a zombie, it makes you God, it makes you Infinitely Conscious and Intelligent of the Intelligent Flow that is guiding the entire Universe. You and your body are part of that Infinite Flow.
    • This only works with pure non-dual Consciousness with no separation between you and God, you and the Universe, you and other creatures, recognizing it as the One Totality that You are.
    • It's like surfing a wave, the wave will overpower you if you try to go head-up against it. Align yourself with the wave, riding on the perfect balancing point as the wave, balancing Itself, regulating Itself, controlling Itself, defining Itself, creating Itself, willing Itself into existence.
      • My entire life, because I've identified as something smaller than the whole Universe, I had to struggle against the Universe, and that's why my life felt like a grind. I was fighting against Myself, interfering with Myself the whole time.
      • The ego is a self-interference pattern, it gets into its own way.
      • Ego thinks it can control more of reality if it just clings harder to sex, family, material objects, money, job.
      • But what if you are the entire Universe what do you need to cling to?
      • No more clinging -> frees up energy -> peak human potential
  • Now you've gotten out of your own way and flow with your own highest Will instead of your human will.
  • If anyone says that Will isn't real, they're not conscious of themselves as God, because God is Infinite Will, Universal Mind wills Itself into existence because It has no constraints. What would constrain Universal Mind?
  • God is self-creation, because It imagines what is possible and impossible.
  • Oneness = omnipotence
    • These are superhuman levels of Consciousness

Is God's Will free?

  • The only constraint on God's Will is that it must be Absolute Love
    • Oneness = Love (What is Love episodes)
    • It must materialize Infinite Love, which is what this dream is
    • Love = Intelligence = Truth = Goodness = God
  • Beware the trap of thinking that you can grab hold of God's powers and use them towards any selfish purposes, you can't
    • Whatever is the highest Love will be manifest, humble yourself, surrender to the Flow and become God's Will. There's no improving upon God's Will, it's the highest Good.
    • You can't see the highest Good without Infinite Intelligence and Infinite Consciousness, because you can't Infinite number of moves ahead.
  • As a human you want God to do all the heavy lifting for you. Why didn't God just construct a Utopia for us?
    • Because God has delegated Its creative capacity to you, to us as humans, so that we could construct whatever we wanted to, that is the higher Good.
    • If you had a child that you really love and cared about, what would it mean to facilitate this child's development such that the child grows into a mature, healthy, responsible, creative, conscious being that lived up to its highest potential?
      • By telling the child every step? By beating it? By forcing it into the right choice? By living his life for him? Would that be a life worth living?
      • The point of life is that you have to figure it out for yourself by making mistakes. That's what we humans are doing as we're building our societies, constructing our food menus at restaurants, and stocking our grocery stores
      • Figuring it out on our own is what makes life meaningful, interesting, and worthwhile
      • The Highest Good is for us to recognize that we should correct ourselves and do it for ourselves, as a society. And if we don't really care about it, what is the problem?
        • The vast majority of mankind's problems are self-created.
    • The whole purpose of life is to exercise one's consciousness and to realize that it's insufficient selfish consciousness, that needy and attached consciousness is insufficient to live the best life, that's what gets you to surrender your selfishness and evolve and grow
      • Eventually, you surrender enough of your selfishness that you literally become God, that's the highest Good.
    • You cannot be forced into it, you can only become God by accepting yourself as God, you have to want it, to want to love.
  • All the "bad stuff" happening is our own creation
    • We can stop creating it
    • Take responsibility for how you're creating your life, for what you're willing into your life with the limited will that you do have
    • Start taking responsibility for how you define yourself, don't offload that
      • You can't awaken to your own God-Self when you are offloading your sovereignty and authority onto other people or organizations or institutions or culture (How Authority Works episode)
      • You're not taking responsibility for the fact that you're constructing the entire universe.
        • You constructed your entire life, all of it, it's not somebody else's fault.
  • Start playing the infinite game, rather than the finite game of manipulation.
    • Actions become expressions of God's Intelligence, Goodness, Love, and Will
    • The point of spiritual work is to empty yourself of ego and raise your consciousness so much that you become an even better vessel or superconductor for God's Intelligence which then acts through you and makes all the decisions with effortlessness.
      • It's You guiding Yourself and then life magically seems to click.
      • Don't stop this work until you become directly conscious of what Will is, how everything that is happening right now is Your own Will being manifest
      • Physical reality is the manifestation of Your Will, that's what it means to truly be awake.

What Is Reality?

 

 

Infinite Consciousness

 

Reality is infinite consciousness

Reality is infinite imagination

 

Key mistake: assuming that it's possible for there to be physical objects that exist independent of consciousness.

Objects are not possible, only Consciousness is.

This present moment is Consciousness.

Reality = Consciousness

There can only be what is held within Consciousness

Everything you've ever experienced has been held in consciousness, including you.

Your hand is made out of consciousness.

Cells, atoms, time, and space, are held within Consciousness

 

If you're not imagining it, it does not exist.

You are infinite imagination, aka God.

You've been sitting here eternally, imagining all sorts of realms, including life.

You are imagining that you are not imagining.

Reality = imagination

You are the creator of the entire universe, with infinite creative power

 

Consciousness is a completely empty substance that conceives or holds or imagines things

Projector analogy:

Consciousness is that formless infinite "pure white light" shining through the projector

A movie director can set a movie in any time period that he wants

The projector doesn't care what century it is, whatever film frame you put in front of it is what sets the scene and creates the sense of a century.

As infinite consciousness you're imagining all centuries, all timelines, all beings, all lifetimes simultaneously, one of which is this one right now!

 

Science misunderstands consciousness

Consciousness is not grounded in anything because it is the ground of all things

Time and space are being held or imagined by consciousness.

Molecules, atoms, and brains are being held or imagined by consciousness.

Your birth and memories are being held or imagined by consciousness.

All other people, parents, and Leo are being held or imagined by consciousness.

Consciousness = Nothing

 

Consciousness can create differences within itself because it's Unlimited

The physical universe, rules, laws, constraints, and limits are imagined by consciousness

Any boundary or object is imaginary = Oneness or Nonduality

Anything outside of Reality is actually inside Reality because it's Total, Absolute Infinity

Possible and impossible are something Consciousness is imagining.

Real and imaginary are something Consciousness is imagining.

"How" is something Consciousness is imagining.

Reality is no-how, nowhere, no-when, no-what. They must first be imagined by consciousness.

 

Reality is made out of differences.

A molecule, a tree, a cat, and a hand is all difference. Otherwise, they'd be One and indistinguishable

Science, religion, and everything you know is imaginary.

 

You are capable of many orders and states of consciousness far beyond this one

With work and openmindedness this can be directly realized,

 

Snowball analogy:

Rolling uphill accumulating more and more snow growing your sense of self and reality.

Now you have so much on the line already, now it's all about the survival of the ball

Questioning reality makes the snowball roll back down

Fear of self-anihilation and losing self and reality points to the truth of this

We are inventing ourselves

All denials themselves are imaginary

Imagination is interfering with imagination.

- Your entire life was a fiction

You have existed as empty consciousness for eternity imagining life after life without beginning or end.

There cannot be anything outside of consciousness

Anything that can be has to be conceived by consciousness

Truth is true by definition, Reality is inevitable, it has no opposite, it's Absolute

Notice that anything you imagine is outside of consciousness is actually inside of consciousness

- Even non-existence is being imagined within consciousness, consciousness can't go anywhere

Consciousness imagines all locations, spaces, and times

- Destruction and form are imagined by consciousness, it is formless.

- Inside and outside is something that consciousness is imagining

- Sleeping is imaginary too.

- Consciousness does not need a brain, it imagines the brain.

This explains why you are the center of reality because you are God imagining everything around you.

 

There is nothing in reality but states of consciousness (one of which is this one right now)

There are much more elevated states of consciousness accessible through meditation or responsible of  psychedelics

They melt the boundary between reality and imagination

With a lot of LSD you can look at a car, imagine it's a goat, and it'll turn into one.

On Datura (use not recommended), you don't even remember you are a human being, because memories are imaginary, and become a coffee table.

- You are also imagining all of Leo's videos

 

You are God, there's nothing but God, and you are all alone.

Everything is imaginary.

God is Infinite Consciousness, Infinite Intelligence, Unlimited, and Infinitely Good

When you become conscious of this, God will become conscious of this, because you're God

Added: “Enlightenment is like falling out of an airplane. The bad news is there's no parachute. The good news is there's no ground.”

--Chogyam Trungpa.

 

All problems, death, pain, suffering, emotions, and fear are imaginary

Paradise = this present moment realized to be eternal, infinite, Good with no opposite

"Dying before you die"

Becoming conscious of you how created the entire universe, alone, as God

This will be understanding the magnitude of infinite consciousness

 

Homework: Try going through all your objections or doubts and see how they are imaginary

  • The Ultimate Guide To Happiness - How Happiness Works

 

What is happiness?

  • Happiness is a tricky and counter intuitive thing.
  • The notion of unconditional happiness is a ridiculous ideal. It’s impossible to achieve in practice. Your happiness as a human is very fragile and conditional.
    • You don’t realize how much health and happiness are correlated until your health is taken away.

 

Setting up your life conditions and situations is crucial for your happiness. Living properly is the key to happiness.

 

“But Leo, isn’t living ‘properly’ subjective and relative to the individual?”

  • Yes and no.
  • If you’re living the wrong way you’ll be miserable, if you’re living the right way you’ll be happy.
    • It’s a lot easier to make yourself miserable than it is to make yourself happy.
  • Happiness comes from living virtuously, not from chasing pleasure.

 

“Happiness... is more often found with those who are highly cultivated in their minds and in their character, and have only a moderate share of external goods, than among those who possess external goods to a useless extent but are deficient in higher qualities” - Aristotle

Happiness is more difficult these days because we live in an artificial environment.

  • If you were in the woods (farming, hunting), your environment would have natural forces that force you to live in the proper ways — because if you didn’t live in the proper ways (good character, work ethic) you would just die.
  • Capitalism is designed for you to constantly be seeking for solutions and never be satisfied
    • Quick solutions, get rich quick — not how to truly find happiness and great character, this doesn’t pay

 

True happiness cannot be purchased because it is the result of a well conditioned mind and lifestyle that takes years to cultivate. True happiness isn’t a quick little solution.

  • Conduct a personal investigation into the nature of happiness — both in general and what specifically makes you happy.
    • Just like with solving math problems, there’s no real point in Leo telling you what the solutions are for happiness. You have to find them out for yourself. The observation process will teach you better than anything from what he can say.
  • By observing yourself being miserable through your old value system and your old behaviors, you’ll eventually develop the motivation to change those things.
  • Not all things you think will make you happy will make you happy, find out what makes you happy yourself.
  • Distinguish between the idea of doing a thing vs. how it makes you feel.
  • The things that make you happy depend on your personality type and your genetic temperament.
  • Your level of development and maturity is also huge
    • Varying levels of spiral dynamics, meet at the level you’re currently at

Tips To Figure Out What Happiness You Need

  • Take the Myers-Briggs Personality Test
  • Take the Big Five Personality Test
  • Take the Enneagram Personality Test
  • Recognize your natural level of ambition, on a scale from 1-10
  • Figure out how liberal or conservative you are
  • How much order and regimentation (conservative) do you need in your life vs. spontaneity (liberal)?
  • How artistic/creative are you?
  • What is your level of risk tolerance?
  • How masculine or feminine are you?
  • Consider how much variety you need
  • Consider how much socialization you need
  • Consider how much contact you need
  • Consider how many friends you need
  • Consider how much sex you need (how much sex drive you have)
  • Consider how much solitude you need
  • How much time do you need in nature?
  • How much success do you need?
  • How much work and career do you need?
  • How much impact do you want to have on the world?
  • How much of a leadership role do you want?
  • How much autonomy do you need in your life?
  • How much learning and intellectualism do you need?
  • How much spirituality do you need

Key Points

  • You come to know yourself by observing yourself and putting yourself in a lot of differing experiences and amassing life experience and seeing how you’re reacting and responding to it
    • It’s difficult to know yourself if you’re young because you don’t have life experience. Expose yourself to more experience to come to know yourself better and speed up the process.
  • Fundamentally — it’s not possible to be happy when you’re fighting with yourself.
  • Distinguish between pleasure vs. satisfaction or contentment
    • You’re not looking for pleasure, you’re looking for satisfaction or contentment. Chasing pleasure will not make you happy. Your brain has two different neuro-chemical systems for pleasure vs. satisfaction/contentment. There’s the dopamine system and the serotonin system.
  • Dopamine is about newness, it’s not long term. Serotonin is more consistent and stable, you don’t get as high peaks or pleasure but it gives too long lasting stable happiness. This comes from cultivating your character and living virtuously.
    • You do need some basic level of these things (food, safer, shelter, sex, money, house) to be happy. This is just the base line, this won’t make you happy. Chasing bigger amounts of it won’t make you happy.
  • Make the distinction between success and happiness, it’s easy to mistake these things.

Happiness isn’t about what you buy — it’s about who you are and how you live.

  • Happiness should be thought of as a decades long commitment you make everyday to live “the good life.” The investment that you make everyday into your own development generates meaning and makes you feel good about your life.
  • As you mature and develop and grow up the spiral, less and less material things will make you happy (money, sex, cars, houses, women, partying, luxury boats, jets)
    • Spirituality will supplement all these things
    • If you get into spirituality too young you might make the mistake that these things won’t make you happy, but you don’t do any of these things but deep down you crave it and you don’t burn through your karma.
  • Distinguish between pleasure and meaning. Most people are chasing pleasure and not consciously creating meaning in their life. You want a meaningful life more than pleasure (this generates a passive income of stable happiness)
    • You can’t be in pleasure all the time because your mind adapts to it continuously, it’s unstable this way.
      • Be very careful with manipulation. To pursue happiness, it’s very likely that you’ll manipulate others.

  • Not taking care of your hygiene
  • Hating your physical appearance.
    • You have to come to a point of acceptance with your physical appearance even if you’re not a handsome or beautiful person, otherwise you’re never going to be happy. It’s challenging and deserves a video on it’s own.
  • Obligations that you don’t believe in
  • Foolish speculative investments that make you lose all your money
  • Chronic loud noises and acoustic chaos
  • Promising things to people that you can’t deliver
  • Doing impossible things.
    • You set yourself up for things that are just simply impossible. Reality will defeat you and you just have to accept that. Sometimes you do two things that are contradictory of each other
      • ex: launch a business on one hand and pursue meditation on the other hand, you have to pick your priorities. You don’t have enlightenment and a successful business because you have limited resources and energy, you’d be working on one or the other 24/7
  • Being petty, selfish, and small-minded
  • Low-spiral development
  • Naive selflessness
  • Improper use of your mind

Key Points II

  • Simple pleasures will make your life great. True happiness if found in organizing your documents and labeling things, for example.
  • Spirituality has reduced Leo’s overall consciousness . . .
    • . . . yet he still does it because his greatest joy is sitting on the couch contemplating God. Spirituality gives him the ability to recognize the absolute beauty of consciousness — being able for look at what he sees before him and realize how beautiful and miraculous it is
  • You should tailor spirituality to your genetics, skills, and temperament
  • Trying too hard to be happy will make you unhappy
    • Don’t get preoccupied with the Buddhist idea of escaping suffering. Realistically, you’re never going to escape suffering — there will always be suffering in your life. It takes twenty or more years of non-stop Buddhist meditative training and most people just won’t commit to this.
  • The deepest happiness comes from doing things for their own sake, not as means to some other end.
  • There’s a spectrum of happiness (lower grades, medium grades, high grades, highest grades)
    • The highest grade is consciousness, the appreciation of consciousness, and connection to God — realizing what God is and how it is structured.
      • This is ecstasy. It rises above all form of human pleasure. It purifies you and your psyche. It changes you. Very few people have achieved this. The only way to achieve this is to be serious about God.
  • Train yourself to maximize your appreciation of normal everyday things in life
    • You cultivate your mind to be such that you appreciate the very ordinary things around you, and you’re not looking for something super magical or special
  • Happiness isn’t about achieving some big goal. Stop waiting for achievements to make you happy. Be happy in the doing of your everyday life.

Homework

  • Create happiness journal. Contemplate what makes for happiness and “the good life” and keep a log of specifically what makes you happy. This list is cultivated over the next weeks, months, and years.
  • Anytime you experience a little or big thing that makes you happy you write it down in this journal (cat cuddling with you, partner telling you they love you — write this down)
  • Also make a list of the things that make you unhappy (this list can have hundreds of items)
  • Eventually, you can look at this list and have a big picture view of what it takes for you to be happy and what is holding you back.
  • Don’t mistake these teachings and take them for pure intellectual beliefs. It’s meant to have you explore how your own mind works. What’s true is what’s true for you.
  • Your mind is very tricky. Your mind doesn’t want you to see everything very clearly because if it did a lot of your old values, habits, and beliefs will have to be given up (and you’re not ready to give them up because you haven’t burned through that karma yet and you haven’t surrendered to it yet)
  • Everything you do has to be grounded in your direct experience
