 What I love the most is reading this shit and remembering EXACTLY where I was at. I can basically plot my progression via my posts, it's really cool. And it's so interesting because it's not linear AT ALL...

Like there were moments in the past when I was FAR MORE on point than I am now and yet I'll be far more on point, in the future, than I was then... it's like this crazy zig zag that charts, very slowly, a long-term progression upwards. 

Love that these posts have been dug up from the grave.

 Good post bro, I do alot of mediatation and it works a charm infield admiring the beauty and small detail of the woman. 
I was on a bootcamp recently with alex- and he did a free tour video on it recently, but he told me during bootcamp - That whilst you are in the moment with the girl admiring their stunningness and energy. To also be aware of logistics of strategy, eg, who there with, whose at the door, how they are getting home, a bf in sight etc. So in a way you are juggling 2 minds at once.

Anyways your post is awesome. Im gunna go mediatate.

will endure incredible amounts of bullshit from girls, will entirely restructure their lives around a single goal... and yet, so many of these same guys, simply refuse to spend 30 minutes out of each day, sitting quietly alone on a cushion. This confuses me.

What most of us do to get motivated is imagining a future state in which we want to be, and work towads it. Most people I know do something every day because they see a reward from it in the end. They see what that activity can bring them. The goal of meditation, however, not only is kind of indefinite and the rewards are kind of blurry, but actually while practicing it what you are trying to do is more getting rid of those images that could motivate you in the first place. You get rid of any image, for that matter.

So, unless you are in a position where you are absolutely desperate to get out of your current thinking pattern, it's quite unlikely that you will have not even the slightest motivation to meditate.

Meditation has had a profound impact on my life as well. I've been consistently doing 10 min or so a day and seeing solid results. Looking to work up to 20-30 min.


How long have you been meditating for? When did you start seeing the most noticeable results?

Do you do meditation everyday? I'm 7 days in a row and right now I love i'm reading shit on meditation forums about all kinds of stuff.  Its just so easy to do it now and reading this was like "thiss is moneeyyy"

I drew out a bunch of boxes on a sheet of paper and cross it off everyday this seems to be working amazingly

I've been on an off for a couple of months but finally said fuck this i'm doing meditation everday.  

Do I feel different? Simple awnser yes. Simallary what buddaman said is it just slows shit down in the field and right now in my life my choices are concciusly checked and in line with my goals. 

My goal is to do 15 everday but a few days i'm able to do two sits once in the morning and once at night.  

Love it.

I am 45 days straight of doing 15 minutes, most of those days, it was done immediately (within 5 minutes) of waking up.  Initially I would have to do a few things like take a shit or drink water or read a few pages of the book to wake up.  

And BTW I was messing with meditation and tracking it (in an Excel worksheet in my Google Drive) since January.  

It was really when I was like FUCK IT, stop deliberating when to do it...just do it right when you wake up bish psht yeah.  

First few weeks I was like INSANE on this shit, like that video where Tyler talks about "Game is an odyssey of the mind" ---



-- where he talks about "It sounds like some Scientology shit, saying you can see the levels of entitlement they have or your mental barriers disappear, but its true" -- that where I've gone to.  

That said, its not only 100% due to meditation, its also a lotta things I got from all the self-help, from books like
- The Compound Effect
- The Magic of Thinking Big

And interactions with some RSD friends and now even family.  

But meditation is a huge fucking thing that is like a scaffolding, its the base of your personal development, when you get to be more mindful, you learn 1000x as much from life, and you get 1000x from life, just as a default.

BTW Buddha -- first time I read this post, I was like "OK cool, he wanted to hug a fat guy" -- and this time I was like "Yup...I fucking GET that shit."  I see it in others all the time, the self-deception, and it really is a sad thing to see, especially in family members (I'm really getting my claws better into my mom and dad's psyche lately having been living at home for 5 or so months...bout to leave, but some cousins I saw recently at my bro's wedding really I wish I could get to do something for themselves...).
