Frank is full of games - otherwise he wouldnt be putting out videos.   Hes all about attention.   Leo is 1000 times more awake than Frank.  Frank has zero to offer.

By that logic Leo is also full of games because he's putting out videos. And everyone else who creates video content.

No...what I see are you guys mesmorized by a teacher.  That's what I see.  Guess what that leads to?  

Frank is not really a teacher, he just produces beautiful content. Being inspired and being mesmerized are two different things.I personally think he's a cool dude and has gone pretty far in his insight practice but it's not the end.

He's drastically reduced the number of videos he is putting out.  In fact recently he has put out nothing.  This is because he's realized it doesn't matter.  It's a killer, but it's a sign of enlightenment.

You have some weird beliefs. What is it based on? And what about posting on a forum? Maybe someone who is enlightened also doesn't post on a forum? What's fundamentally different between posting text vs video? Does posting on the forum matter? Maybe you're not awake because you keep doing it?

Eventually I won't.   Look at Ramana Maharshi.  He starved himself to death because of how conscious he was.  I barely have enough desire to post on a forum.  It's dwindling away.  But it's still there for me.

He didn't starve himself to death. He was fed. And simply being in samadhi to the point of not being aware of your body and its needs is not necessarily a sign of a high spiritual attainment. Ramana himself said that such a thing was basically useless because it didn't dissolve the ego.

Can you imagine someone like Ramana hitting nightclubs and gaming women for quick sex? And giving advice to men that they should learn to enjoy this kind of thing when they don't?

Leo will get there - as you will.  As frank will.   But he's far from what I would consider awake.   He's all excited about sharing it.   That's how easy I can tell.

Frank did the same for a couple of years after his 'awakening' if this is the metric you're going to use then Frank Yang would also be enlightened

 

Edit: sorry for being argumentative. I'm just bored

Why don't you think he's awake? He had a full-blown Kundalini awakening. Does that not fit into your definitions of Awakening anymore? Genuinely curious.

Nothing but Leo’s non-existent (due to Solipsism) direct experience is Awake from what I’ve gathered from his posts. It appears that “Awake” has become an entirely different word when he uses it.

“Any kind of consciousness whatever, whether past, future, or present, internal or external, gross or subtle, inferior or superior, far or near — a disciple of mine sees all consciousness as it actually is with proper wisdom thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’” - the Tathāgata

Speaking from experience, Frank has done more for me practically than Leo has. Although, Leo has done more for me theoretically. I've attained stable states of consciousness totally naturally because of Frank. I've never gotten anything of the sort from Leo, and in day to day life that makes a difference.

@dualnon Interesting. Leo has changed my life completely. 
 

Frank Yang doesn’t do much for me. I really don’t resonate with him.

Both have videos on self inquiry and meditation - so it just happened to be that his videos helped you more.   That is fine.  As you said, the theoretical framework is here - and that's really all you need.  The meditation has to be done regardless- and that is independent of teacher.

For me it is a miraculous oasis that at least this exists. spirituality without psychedelics gets stuck, nothing is achieved imo, and this is the only place in history where this is discussed. It is true that it is going slowly, there is no general opening, it is drop by drop, but it is something. only the beginning of a trend, of the wish and the consecution of the real understanding of reality, or so I hope

You're really wrong on the psychedelic stuff though.  It's not required for awakening like you think it is.
