One word.

FEAR

I would give absolutely anything to have my amygdala removed or permanently deactivated. I am far beyond sick and tired of being crippled by False Evidence Appearing Real.

False evidence appearing real.  Wow yeah sign me up.

patience, trust (completely) in God, not able to endure pain for long enough.

The one and only challenge/frustration for me is not being able to relate to anyone else, thus ending with me just not communicating my way of perceiving the world with anyone else. There's no value to be had in trying to communicate things nobody around you is able to comprehend.

Apathy.


Consiousness is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is.

Earlier in my journey what I found challenging and frustrating was finding books and teachers who messages were not highly distorted or corrupted. It was like trying to find your way out of a maze and most of the people you were looking to for guidance were blind.

Getting over the looming fear of becoming literally immortal. Becoming so lucid that I can literally do anything I wish within reality with just thought alone even if that defies what is physically possible. I fear this because if it happened I would assume life would lose much of it's meaning and mystery. Thankfully, due to my fear of it then it should prevent me from ever becoming that lucid.

the nawwing feeling of life just dragging on, even with the meditation, breathwork and psychedelics i fall into these old patterns of bullshit and meaninglesness and it just feels like a cycle, so much fear, none of these videos or talks help like they used to, everyone just seems full of shit

There's too much that I want to do and I am not really certain or wired to just stick to 1-2 things.

The sense of always being so far away from the goal, wondering if I would ever get there. Lots of emotional labor put in but with hardly any significant results.

A big challenge for me is actually implementing the things I learn in self-help videos and books and being consistent with it. Also, not giving in too much on distractions and procrastinations. I could list a hundred more challenges. Self-development is a long road, it's a war in a sense.

Dealing with things that seem trivial. It's really hard initially to know what is the right way to about personal development and spiritual work. There is a sea of opinions, interpretations tools, concepts out there. Then, I have to process that through my own foolish, selfish, biased and niave mind... 

I've learned that basically I just keep trying everyday, make mistakes, self reflect, course correct and persist. 

I will not stop until I reach the promised land!
