When You Feel Awkward In Your Own Body

By | June 6, 2024

Most people don’t notice their body-awkwardness. You may know that something’s not right when you walk, but have no idea what is the issue and why you can’t feel at ease in your own body. It bothered me for so long… I knew people were noticing that I can’t move freely. They saw I’m not… Read More »

Don’t Put Limits On Learning

By | February 16, 2024

Some people want to learn new things but haven’t embodied the value — to have the capacity to learn, we must value learning.

There’s no such thing as ‘I must have a preference for a particular field.’… Read More »

On A Higher Level Of Consciousness

By | January 25, 2024

What can I do other than be forgiving to the people who are possessed by their egos? They have no idea that they’re not in control of themselves and that their ego is the boss. That is, they have a false identity that controls them. If you try to make them aware of the situation,… Read More »

If You Are Mediocre…

By | January 21, 2024

If you are mediocre, it is somehow your fault — there’s always space for improvement, but we need to have a burning desire for growth. If nothing works, the fault doesn’t lie out there.

Spirituality Is The Only Way Forward

By | December 29, 2023

Spirituality is the only way forward, telling people they must stop fooling around and take life seriously, otherwise they’ll get burned. Robert Greene has eloquently stated that reality has its power (we can’t bend it or adjust it to our childish needs) and that if we don’t develop skills and eventually mastery, we won’t be… Read More »

A Deep Perspective On Compulsive Thinking

By | December 25, 2023

Compulsive thinking is harmful because it generates stress, so we know the consequences of it — restlessness, uneasiness, and a weaker immune system, plus the inability to be at ease with yourself. Compulsive thinking is terrible for you. We have so many worries that we must relinquish or abandon. Otherwise — if we’re not doing… Read More »

Understanding Pain and Pleasure

By | November 13, 2023

When you relinquish negativity — stress, anxiety, resentment, anger, and so forth — you give up on experiencing pleasure. Pain and pleasure are interlinked mechanisms; they work together. As you transcend negativity, you also overcome your cravings for thrills, rushes of pleasure, and excitement. Desire keeps you at a lower level of consciousness; it makes… Read More »

Having a great memory is not exclusive to talented people or the ones who were born with it. Anyway, let’s get to the point. Have you wondered what… Read More »

If It’s Humanly Possible, You Can Do It Too

By | October 7, 2023

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” — Marcus Aurelius “I have power over myself, even though my mind tells me otherwise.” I had to tell this to myself repeatedly. When you are in darkness (brain fog, fear, restlessness, or an inability to concentrate), you… Read More »
