The wisest people speak the most simply and clearly. There's this whole attitude in academia that you have to be verbose to sound intelligent. This is totally wrong.

Feel the fear and do it anyway. Be so good they can't ignore you. Do whats the emotional difficult thing to do. To get better at a craft practice in a way thats mental demanding and not just in a way that comes easy or in a state of flow.  Take 100% responsibility.  To overcome fear fully feel it. To learn something actually try to understand and figure it out until you get it (sometimes it seems like some may aviod actually understanding the material) Do hard things every day to overcome the path of least resistance when facing difficult situation (embrace the suck)

Thats a few i can think of.

"You see." Leo Gura

we need pain and suffering without it we loses our ability to grow as a species. Life shouldn’t be about how to experience as much joy and happiness as possible or to avoid pain but about solving problems and pushing past our comfort zone because that’s where we grow, become better and gain wisdom. No pain no gain.

When you’ve got it, really got it, so viscerally you can literally taste it - when you’ve got it and you know you’ve got it - let it go.

When you want someone’s affection and love so bad and it’s not reciprocated, but you stand aloof and sure of yourself that’s when you often get them.

Trying to impress people seems like a bad thing. But it can motivate you to do big things. 

Feeling guilty seems like a good thing but it benefits nobody. It only hurts you.

Taking breaks seems like a good thing. But it kills your momentum. You can get into a nice meditative state when you do one activity for a long period of time. Or ''the zone'' as they call it. But first you have to move through lots of pain and boredom barriers.

You would think that businesses want to help you but they only want to help themselves.

Walking the middle path seems like a good thing. But often one pole is better than the other. So you're better off ditching the bad pole. And be an extremist.

By helping people you often end up making them weak and lazy.

Not caring gives you the best results

breathing less oxygenates you more

there is an infinite number of sets “larger” than infinity 

You generate your emotions, external circumstances don’t 

all dualities are illusory 

Everything is relative

Im gonna go and share my personal opinion, but is only that and I do not seek to prove anyone wrong

To me counter-intuitiveness, seems like the final hurdle, the final wrench to remove

You get close to untangling life, but life will never be untangled, counter-intuitiveness seems like a highly advanced attempt to finally control life, to get how it works, and what to do to make the life machine work right

It seems to me like the final step before ultimate surrendering, you understand how tricky and full of paradoxes life is and one would use that to finally get what you want, that is my perspective on it

Half of everyone is feminine energy, and as the legend goes, you will never understand what a woman wants

That mystery, that surprise, that absolute uncontrollable aspect, is half our essence, it is absolutely and infinitely random, true randomness

That is my humble view on it

Recognizing that effort is an illusion and so that, in fact, maximum effort is really effortless. This insight’s been huge for me and my ability to get shit done

@Leo Gura

At around 1:30:54, it's counter-intuitive to put yourself in the enlightened masters' shoes and be radically open to why they are saying that. For example, some of them had their nothingness awakening (Riding the Ox Backwards) when they were children. You can't induce that with a substance at that age. Then, for them, there are 'minor' awakenings afterwards throughout life, which are just as important as the nothingness awakening. They don't want to miss out on those because those can set them in the right directions in life. If you keep inducing this and that, you may just be skipping steps and missing out on the meaningful lessons. As you said in your blog, life is a school. I agree. In the actual school, we can't miss out on the lessons which set the foundations. You also have to factor in karma as you go along. It makes the spiritual path very complex.
