What To Do Next After Learning About Enlightenment
By Leo Gura - February 16, 2015 | 74 Comments
How to adjust your life to accommodate the truth of no-self
Hey, this is Leo for Actualized.org, and in this video I want to talk about what you need to do next, now that you have learned about spiritual enlightenment.
This video is intended to be watched after you have first watched my Spiritual Enlightenment video, the one that introduces you to spiritual enlightenment and tells you exactly what it is. It is a long video. It is an in depth video. It’s a world view shattering video.
So, if you haven’t seen it, go and watch it. If you have seen it, then you have probably been left with a bit of a bitter taste in your mouth. You’re not quite sure what to do, now that you have learned about this truth and you’re not sure where to go. This has made you confused.
It has made your life more complicated. You are not sure in which direction to go, because it seems like you are being pulled in two directions. You’ve got the life that you have been currently living, pretty much your normal existence. You have been living that your whole life.
That has still got momentum and it’s pulling you. But, you’ve also got this new truth that you have learned and this is now beckoning you to go on a journey and pull yourself in a totally different direction. In some sense, these can be opposite seeming directions.
I want to clear some of this up and tell you what the game plan is here. When most people hear about the truth of spiritual enlightenment, what happens is that it is a blow to your system. The emotional reaction that you experience is sadness, depression, this feeling of emptiness and this feeling like life is pointless.
You might have been left thinking something like – “Oh, damn! So, my whole life was this giant lie. Now, it’s still a lie. I am still continuing to live this lie. So, what do I do? Do I stop the lie? Do I continue going with it? I don’t even know in which direction to go in if I wanted to stop this lie.”
There is this sense that everything is pointless. There is no more purpose to anything anymore. You are not excited about life anymore. You don’t know what to do. What should you do? Well, the first thing to recognize is let’s not be rash here.
Remember, these emotions that you are experiencing, whatever they are, sadness, anger or emptiness, are emotional reactions of the ego. This is how the ego protects and defends itself. So, when you first hear this truth you are going to have a very big emotional reaction.
But, just like with anything in life, you hear it the first time and it might shock you. Then, you get desensitized to it over time. So, right now, if you just heard this truth today, yesterday or last week, it’s still very fresh in your palate. You have still got that aftertaste.
It can seem a bit bitter, a bit sour and a bit depressing. Well, just let that carry itself through. Those are natural emotions. Let them carry themselves through. They are not that painful. They are not that damaging to your life.
So, don’t pretend to play into them and pretend – “Oh my god! My life is going to hell! I should kill myself now! Everything is horrible!” Don’t do that. Just let the natural emotions come up, even if they are negative. Then, don’t play into them and make them exaggerated.
Don’t blow them over the top. Don’t overreact. Don’t do anything, at this point yet, to change your life around because you are not sure which ways to change your life yet. The thing is this. Your ego, the way it defends itself is that it jumps to assumptions and conclusions about what you should do, which makes it seem like your whole life is going to hell when it is, in fact, not.
Your Point Of View
I am going to talk about that a little bit later here. Before we even go there, first of all, from your point of view, if you have just heard about spiritual enlightenment from me, then you have got to watch out because you have to consider two things. First of all, consider that I could be lying to you.
Secondly, consider that I could be wrong. From your point of view, both of these things can be the case. It’s not the case, but it doesn’t help you when I tell you that I am not lying to you or that I am not wrong because, from your point of view, I could still be lying to you or I could still be wrong.
So, what does this mean? This leaves you in kind of an unresolved state, if you will. That is good. That is what you need to get more comfortable with. The whole problem is that your whole life, up to this point, has been designed about getting you stability, certainty and resolution.
Spiritual enlightenment is all about the opposite. You have to kind of shake your mind loose of all these certainties that you have had because it is these certainties that have been creating a lot of problems for you, without you being aware of it. So, what you need to do is not jump into some opposite conclusion.
Don’t have faith in me. Don’t just believe everything I say. Be a little bit skeptical, so kind of follow that middle path there. At this point in your life, you have got to understand that you are still caught up in the illusion. If what I am telling you is true, you are still caught up in it.
Don’t go and do something drastic and crazy with your life and then justify – “Oh, it’s because Leo told me this spiritual enlightenment thing and now I need to go and do this crazy thing.” No! I didn’t tell you anything crazy that you have to do.
I just shared some information with you and that perhaps gave you a different perspective on life. Recognize that just having a perspective on life is one thing and going out there and doing something crazy is a different thing. I did not in any way advocate you do anything crazy with your life.
So, don’t be rash. You are still caught in this illusion. Any actions that you take right now are actually coming from a position of being in the illusion. If you tell yourself that you’re going to go and do something, and that is you breaking the illusion, is that really you breaking the illusion or is that you being a victim of the illusion?
You are still caught in it. That means that you still operate on all the same principles that you have operated on before. It’s not like I shared this truth with you and, all of a sudden, you’re enlightened. If you actually became enlightened from me telling you the truth, which would not be possible but let’s say you did, then I would be speaking to you in a very different way.
You would now be in a very different position in life, but you’re not there. You’re not enlightened. All that you have is some information. This information needs to be used to go on a journey. It can be.
If you don’t want to go on a journey, then do not go on a journey. Regardless, you are still in the place that you are at, so you might say – “Leo, does this mean that all the self-help videos that I have been watching from you are pointless? Does this mean that I should stop reading books? Does this mean that I should stop going to work?”
“Does this mean that I should divorce my wife and leave my kids behind? Does this mean that I should quit my job? Does this mean that I should go live in a cave, somewhere in India? What does all of this mean?”
You have got to understand that you are still in the same place where you were at before you watched the video. Nothing has really changed for you. You just became a little bit more depressed. That means that, if you do go live in a cave in India and you quit your job and all of this stuff, you are going to have massive suffering.
Do you understand this? You’re not enlightened. If you go there and you live in a cave, you would get the exact experience you imagine you would get if you went and dropped your whole life and lived in a cave. You would suffer a lot.
So, I don’t recommend you do that, not now. You haven’t attained anything yet. Don’t be so quick to throw everything away in your life. Be careful about using this now as an excuse to become a slob or a slacker in your life.
Just because you understand spiritual enlightenment intellectually does not mean that you now get to become a jerk to your family. That is not an excuse to be a jerk to your family, nor does it mean that you can now tell your boss to go fuck himself. It does not mean that money is now not important and you don’t have to pay your rent to your landlord.
All of these things are still part of reality. Those are not illusions. You still have to pay your bills. You still have to feed your kids; otherwise they are going to go hungry. You still probably want to be nice to your wife, otherwise she is going to be mad at you.
Those are still things you want to uphold and maintain. If you’re eating healthy and maintaining healthy does not mean that you should now go, because of enlightenment, and start eating at McDonalds and start splurging on Snickers bars. Don’t do that.
Maintain your health. If you’ve got a gym routine, keep going to your gym routine. Everything just keeps going. We are imprinting you with a new perspective. Don’t get the perspectives confused with the actions, at least right now.
At What Stage Are You?
The other thing you should know is this. I don’t know where you are right now in your life, but everyone is in a very different place. Some of you are struggling just to pay the rent. Some of you are jobless. Some of you are homeless, watching this video.
Some of you are really well off and you’ve got a great and flourishing career. Some of you are in your retirement age. Some of you own your own business and you’ve got a passive income. Some of you are working paycheck to paycheck and maybe you are working 60 hour weeks at your job.
So, there are a lot of different positions that you can be in. There are a lot of different ages you could be in. You could be 15 years old. You could be 25 years old, 40 years old, 50, 60 or 70 years old.
Depending on where you are, not just in life, but also in your personal development and psychological development, there is different stuff that you will need to do. First of all, understand that what we are talking about here with spiritual enlightenment is the most advanced stage of personal development work. It is also the most advanced stage of self-actualization work.
This is when you realize that there is no self to self-actualize. This might seem like this. Oh my god, everything that I have been doing up to this point has been a hoax. You don’t want to look at it like that. You want to look at it like stages.
There is a stage, a kind of stair step ladder from the very bottom and to the very top. This is a long ladder and there is a lot of development that has to happen along the way. Just because you are going to be doing some work at a very high level stage does not mean that everything below that has been useless. No!
Everything that you have been doing up to this point has been building you up to this stage that you are going to be at now. Many of you might not even be at this stage or be ready for this stage. So, that is a decision you have to make for yourself and where you are on this ladder.
Just to give you a basic example, let’s say that you have difficulty paying your mortgage right now. Your house might get repossessed in a couple of months if you don’t go and find yourself a new job. You’ve got a family. You’ve got a wife and a couple of kids.
You have got some of these money issues. You don’t know how to buy the groceries. If you’re in that situation, spiritual enlightenment is not something you should be worrying about right now. You’ve got some more basic and fundamental issues to take care of.
Go ahead and take care of your money issue so that there isn’t this burning need for money. Fix that, and then maybe you will be ready for spiritual enlightenment work later. Maybe you will require five or 10 years of more personal development work before you get to the point where you can do this spiritual enlightenment work.
Now, it’s not to say that anything is preventing you. No matter what stage you are at in life, if you’re very young and you’re very unexperienced with life, you can still pursue spiritual enlightenment. But, remember that the day is long. There are many days in the year.
It’s not like you’ve only got one option here. It’s not like all you have to do is do spiritual enlightenment work 24/7. You don’t need to do this. In fact, that would backfire on you. It’s about making small shifts in your life to accommodate this work.
Handle Your Life First
It’s not about totally transforming your life, not unless you really want to and not unless it really makes sense for you. Get your basics handled. If you’ve got relationship problems that are very fundamental, they are making you anxious and agitated, get those handled.
If you’ve got health problems, you’re overweight and your doctor is telling you that you are going to have a heart attack next year unless you fix that, let’s go ahead and have you fix that first. This is simply because this is spiritual enlightenment.
This is a long process. This might take you a couple of years, in the best case scenario. It might take you 5 or 10 years to do. In the meantime, you’ve got to understand you are still living your ordinary life. Nothing is really changed.
You still need a job. You still need to pay the bills and do all the ordinary stuff that you do. Your internal state hasn’t changed. If you go ahead and run amuck of your life, you’re going to feel that and you are going to suffer for it.
It’s not like you are not going to suffer. That suffering will be there. It’s a self-created suffering. It’s an illusion, but the suffering feels very real to you. So, it’s still going to be there because you haven’t escaped the illusion. That’s what I mean.
You are still stuck in the illusion. Don’t think you’re now out of the illusion. You’re still totally in it. After you get the basics handled, you might even want more than just the basics. You might want to go back and look at my other videos that are not enlightenment related and fix other parts of your life.
Maybe, what you want is to get a good girlfriend. Maybe, what you want is to start your own business or you want to quit this nasty job that you have and find a nicer job that you really are passionate about. Go ahead and do that. That’s fine.
The reason I tell you these things is because I know what is going to happen. If you’ve got a crummy life right now and you commit yourself to this journey of spiritual enlightenment, you’re going to get on it and feel excited for a while. “Oh, I’m doing something new and this is kind of cool.”
You are going to do this for, let’s say, a few weeks or a few months. What is going to happen then is that the life you left behind will catch up with you. Even if you move right now to India and meditate in a cave in the Himalayas, you actually haven’t left anything behind. Sure, you might have left your job and family behind.
Still, all the problems you had and all the suffering you had from those situations are still all going to be with you. You can’t escape that because it’s in your head. Your head goes with you everywhere. The ego goes with you everywhere.
This illusion that you are in goes with you everywhere. You can’t escape it by moving to another country or living under the ocean. You can’t escape it. It’s in your mind. It comes with you.
That means that you might need to do some basic and fundamental personal development work just so that you are comfortable enough to even pursue this truth. To pursue this truth takes a lot of open mindedness. It takes a certain emotional resiliency to do this.
For example, if I go and explain all of this to a homeless man on the street who is sitting there, he hasn’t eaten for a week, he’s dirty, tired and he’s got some health issues that he has not seen a doctor for because he doesn’t have any money, do you think he is going to be receptive to these truths about spiritual enlightenment? There is no self and all of this stuff? No, he is not going to care.
Even if he kind of cares and wants it, he is not going to actually be able to fulfill on that commitment because he’s in such a dire position in life. He is so emotionally distressed that his mind cannot focus. To do this spiritual enlightenment work, we need your mind to be clear.
We need your mind to be able to focus. We need you to be free of threats, such as serious threats in life. If your life is in threat right now, let’s say you’re living in the inner city and there are gangs around you that are going around and shooting people and you’re involved with drugs and stuff, spiritual enlightenment is not for you. Get yourself out of that situation first.
Find yourself a calm place in your life where you can actually sit down and do the work, where your mind can focus and you don’t have too many distractions. There is a lot of focused work that needs to be done here. If you can’t do it, then you’re not going to be able to do it.
What is going to happen is that you’re going to suffer even more because you’re going to be trying so hard to get enlightened, but you’re not going to be in a place where you can get enlightened. It’s kind of like this if you were in first grade right now and I told you about calculus.
There is this cool thing called calculus. You can do all of this amazing stuff with calculus, but you’re in the first grade. You’re not ready for calculus. Go ahead and learn arithmetic. Learn your multiplication tables.
Go ahead into middle school and high school and start learning algebra and geometry. Start learning trigonometry and start learning more advanced mathematics. Start learning how to graph, plot and how to do functions and all of the pretty advanced math. Then, when you’re a freshman in college, you will start learning calculus.
You have to peg yourself. Where are you? Are you in first grade right now? Are you in fifth grade? Are you in tenth grade or college level right now?
If you’re at the college level, then maybe this journey is for you. Handle the basics first. There are really two extremes here that you could undertake. They are two extreme action paths.
One is basically to quit everything in your life and go pursue spiritual enlightenment 100%. Some people have done it this way. This is how the Buddha supposedly did it. But, I don’t recommend this path. This is an extreme path because you will likely quit and then go back to an even worse place than where you started from.
This is not recommended. The other extreme path is that you say – “Okay, fuck all this. This is all nonsense and philosophy bullshit. Let me just go back to my normal life.” What you do is you go back to your normal life and you completely forget about everything that we have talked about here.
You forget about spiritual enlightenment. You throw it all away and you just go back to sleep. Right now, you’re living a life of sleep. You’re asleep. But, after you watched this spiritual enlightenment video, what happened is that you were awoken up, just for a brief second.
For a brief second, your eyes opened and you saw a new possibility. Your eyes opened. Now, what needs to happen is that a lot of work needs to happen to keep your eyes open. Otherwise, you are going to fall back asleep. If you fall back asleep, you might never wake up again.
You might never get this opportunity again. When you saw my spiritual enlightenment video, chances are that it was just an accident. You were not looking for it. One day, you just clicked on a button somewhere. You saw a video, you watched through it and then suddenly, something hit you and you woke up.
That might be a once in a lifetime chance. Don’t go back to sleep and don’t do nothing at all. Instead, what you should do is what I recommend here. Here is my action plan for you. It’s called The Middle Path.
The Middle Path
The Middle Path looks like this. One, don’t make any really big changes in your life. You don’t need to. It’s not necessary. External actions are not what produce enlightenment. Living on a deserted island by yourself does not produce enlightenment, nor does meditating in a cave, on a mountain top, in the desert or anywhere else.
That is not necessary. Next, I really encourage you to keep your family together. Keep your obligations to your family. Keep loving your family. Keep having fun with your family. That is all fine.
Keep your career in place. You need a job. You need to pay the bills, so keep your career in place. Don’t go quitting your job. If you have a gym routine and a nutrition routine, maybe you’re on a certain diet and you’re trying to eat healthy, maintain that.
That is good. That is good habit and good practice. You will need that. Even after you are enlightened, you will want to eat healthy. Go to the gym. Keep doing all of that stuff.
Don’t use this as an excuse to quit. If you’re in school or college, keep going to school or keep going to college. You need those fundamentals. You need the fundamentals of school and college. That will help you out later in life anyways.
You don’t want to be enlightened but then not understand arithmetic or language. Get those things under your belt. Those are the very fundamental things that you need. Everyone needs those.
I also recommend that you keep doing self-help. You might wonder – “Well Leo, if there is no self, then why the hell should I do self-help? It seems like a hoax.” No, it’s not as much of a hoax as you think.
In the end, when you get to the highest levels, self-help will change to you. Your relationship to self-help will change. But, you know what? Right now, I still do self-help. After I came into contact with this truth of spiritual enlightenment, which was probably 2 years ago at this point, it’s not like I quit everything.
I still kept doing self-help. In fact, I started Actualized.org during this interim period. I didn’t just do it so that I could pay my bills. I did it because I believed in it and because it’s helpful. It’s helpful to move you from the bottom levels to the upper levels.
If you’ve got money issues, relationship issues, if you’re chronically depressed, you’ve got panic attacks, fits of anger or you’re not able to maintain decent relationships with people at work, these are all issues that are so fundamental that you’ve got to fix these things. They will help you in your quest towards spiritual enlightenment. In fact, if anything, I would say to take your time and energy away from some of the material and external things that you do and start focusing them on self-help.
The more self-help you do, the more you’re going to actually get convinced of the benefits of spiritual enlightenment and the fact that it is the right path for you. Honestly, if I just take someone off the street who doesn’t know anything about self-help and I tell them about spiritual enlightenment, they are going to think that I’m crazy. They’re not going to even understand the benefits of doing this journey.
Someone who has been doing self-help for a long time, if you’ve been doing self-help for 10 or 20 years and I tell you about spiritual enlightenment, you’re probably going to have some things click in your mind. It’s going to be like – “Oh, now I get it! Now I get all of this stuff.”
“Now I get why I struggled here, why my relationships have this problem, why I’m negative sometimes and what my lack of consciousness means. I understand what the spiritual books now mean. I understand why I was meditating all of this time.”
All of this stuff starts to come into place. It clicks into place for you. That is good. You want that foundation. Keep doing that.
The other thing I recommend for you, as part of this Middle Path, is to start doing daily meditation. I’ve got a great video called how to meditate. It will teach you how to set up a meditation practice. It is very simple.
As part of your foundation for starting to do spiritual enlightenment work, you need to start meditating. That is going to help you. It’s not going to be the only solution, but it’s going to be a really nice foundation. We need to build your ability to focus.
You need to be able to focus. You need to be able to go into your mind objectively and see what’s going on in there. This means that you have to practice mindfulness. If you’re practicing mindfulness outside of meditation, that’s great.
Keep doing that. If you’re practicing mindfulness right there, in the meditation, that is also very good. Start that habit. Also, what you are going to do is this.
Once I start releasing some videos that teach you how to actually start taking the steps and the practical action steps for doing this enlightenment work, you should dedicate half an hour a day or an hour a day, however much you can manage, to doing this enlightenment work. It doesn’t have to be a lot, at first. It can just be 20 minutes.
It can just be 30 minutes or 60 minutes. You don’t really need more than 60 minutes a day. That is enough. Just to put this into perspective, it’s 60 minutes. All of you have an extra 60 minutes lying around.
You do. This just means to watch a little less TV. Spend a little less time partying and drinking with your friends. Spend a little less time on the internet posting stupid comments or whatever it is that you do that is a waste of time.
Sometimes, people ask me – “Leo, does this mean that I now don’t have enough time in my schedule to do enlightenment because I’ve got a family and all of this stuff to do?” No! You’ve still got time. Most people have time. There is one thing that you do need to stop.
This is very important, right here. What you need to stop is you need to stop the following. Stop chasing success. Stop chasing fame. Stop chasing money.
Stop chasing sex and stop chasing love. In general, stop chasing bodily pleasures. Stop chasing this stuff. Stop distracting yourself with this stuff. All of these things, success, recognition, fame, money, sex, love and pleasure, are distractions of the ego.
They fill up your time and they fill up your schedule with crap really quickly. I notice this in myself. It’s very easy to make yourself busy when you have all this chasing that you do in your life. You are chasing your tail.
Really, the only thing you should be taking away from this video about enlightenment is this. If anything, all you need to do is get rid a little bit of all the distractions in your life. Just get rid of those and everything will be fine. You will create the room that you need.
You will find that this is healthy for you, even if you don’t do enlightenment. Just get rid of the distractions. Cut back on the TV, internet, some of those addictions that you have and that kind of stuff. Stop chasing for women.
Stop chasing for men. Stop looking for love everywhere. It’s okay. You don’t need those crutches. I am not saying that you should never pursue money or you should never go after fame.
I’m just saying to hold yourself back a little bit because what the ego does, it’s always like this. “I need it. I need it. I need it. I need it.” It’s like a little kid who wants a toy in the toy store. He keeps asking his mom for this toy.
He doesn’t really need this toy. He’s got a hundred of other toys, but he just wants this toy because it’s the new flashy toy. Don’t be that. Don’t be lured in by the distractions of the ego.
Basically, this is what I said in my Time Management video, if you watched that one. You stop doing stupid shit. Stop doing stupid shit in your life, but keep the healthy and good stuff going and you’re going to be right where you need to be.
As far as this thing about being depressed, look. “Oh Leo, I’m depressed.” You are going to be depressed for about a week or two. When I first heard about this truth, I was depressed for about a week. Then, you know what happens?
You come back. You come back and life becomes exciting again. Everything is cool and everything is fine. In fact, the biggest danger is not that you’re going to stay depressed. You’re not going to stay depressed.
What is going to happen is that your ego will kick back in, in overdrive. In about a week or two after, what is going to happen is something like this. You’re going to be sitting there, all depressed and going – “Oh man, my life has been a lie.”
Then, something is going to click in you and your ego is going to fight back. It’s going to say – “You know what? Fuck that Leo! Fuck that Leo and his enlightenment bullshit. I am going to go out there and live a happy life for myself. Fuck all this nonsense. I am going to go out there and do everything I plan to do.”
“In fact, I am going to do even bigger than I plan to do. I’ll show him! I am going to go and make all of this money. I am going to get all the girls. I am going to get myself a beautiful house and a beautiful marriage, with beautiful kids. I am going to be so happy and I’m going to show him!”
“Ten years later, I am going to show him how happy I am and all his fucking nonsense. We will see whose life is better, mine or his.” See, your ego is going to kick in like that. You are going to have this overreaction.
What is going to happen is that you are going to turn your back on enlightenment. You are going to go and chase your tail. You are going to be more motivated than ever. You are going to be chasing your tail because it’s going to feel very good.
Why is it going to feel very good? You are going to feel very significant, because you feel very empty right now. You are going to feel significant and that difference is going to feel like a hit of stimulation. It’s going to be like a drug for you because you’re addicted to stimulation.
So, you need that fulfillment. You need that sense of significance. It’s a drug for you. You’re hooked on it. Go ahead and do that, if you want.
What is going to happen is that you’re going to waste a couple of years of your life, chasing your tail. You are going to maybe get that wife, that husband, that money, that sexy girlfriend or that beautiful house. You are going to find that it doesn’t make you as happy as you thought it would.
After a while of that and doing personal development work, what you’re going to discover is this. “Shit, it’s not working. Shit, it’s really not working. Why is it not working? I can’t understand why it’s not working.”
Maybe you’re going to waste 5 to 10 years of your life doing this. Then, you will maybe scratch your head and say – “Oh wait, I remember that thing about enlightenment. Why don’t I come back to that? Why don’t I take a look at that? Now, I’ve kind of exhausted my thirst for all of these titillations of the material world.”
“Why don’t I go and take another look at enlightenment?” Maybe you’ll come back, but that’s dangerous. You’re not guaranteed that you’re going to come back. Most people who have this overreaction forget about enlightenment completely, so they go back to sleep. They never recover. They never come back.
Just be careful about that. Smile! Right now, you think that this is depressing, that this truth of no self is depressing. It’s not depressing. This is beautiful. This is awesome!
Your ego thinks it’s depressing because it means bad news for the ego, but it means good news for the true self, which is the you that you have never been in contact before. You’re going to discover your true self. Take in the full ramifications of what you were told in that original enlightenment video.
What did I tell you? I basically promised you eternal happiness, eternal peace of mind and immortality. That is what you were promised and you’re now depressed? You’re depressed by this? No!
What is depressing is the life that you live now, your egoic and selfish life. That is what’s depressing. Have you even thought through the ramifications of how you’re living your life? You do understand you’re going to die, right?
Under your models of reality, you’re going to die. Do you understand this? That is not going to take that long. You’ve got another 20, 30, 40 or 50 years at most. Then, you’re going to be dead.
Do you understand this? You’re going to be dead. You are going to die a miserable and painful death. Do you understand this? That is depressing. That is sad.
What I am telling you is not sad. What I am saying is that you can be eternally happy with your life. You can be living in heaven and in paradise, right here and right now. You don’t need any mystical nonsense to do it. All you need to do is undertake this investigation into enlightenment.
You will become immortal. Do you understand this? There is no self. That means that self cannot die. If there is no self, who is going to die?
No one is going to die. So, that’s a pretty cool thing. What you have discovered here, by watching these videos inadvertently, is the Holy Grail. You’ve literally discovered the Holy Grail, except what you’ve discovered is not actually the Holy Grail itself, but a map to the Grail.
I have given you a map to the Grail. The question is this. Are you going to go and discover the Grail? Are you going to get battered and depressed and say “Oh man, that Grail is on top of a mountain, I have to go and climb a mountain to find the Grail, fuck that, that’s depressing”?
The Grail is here. It is in your sight. Be happy about that. Life is beautiful. Life is amazing.
Life is passionate. Life is peaceful. Life is happy. All of this stuff is true and it’s there for you to discover. Right now, you don’t really understand any of that.
Your current life is none of those things. If you think that your life is beautiful, peaceful and happy right now, you’re lying to yourself. It’s not. Stop lying to yourself. Your life can become that if you do the work that I am telling you to do.

This enlightenment stuff needs to be shared more. We need more people onboard with this, not because it makes us feel good but because this is what makes the world a better and more peaceful place.
Finally, come and sign up to my newsletter. It’s a free newsletter at Actualized.org. Sign up. I release new videos for free, every single week. Some of the videos are on enlightenment topics. I can go really deep with you guys on this stuff.
Also, I am still going to be doing more traditional personal development videos. So, don’t fret. If you’ve got some basic issues in your life that you’re having difficulty with, like relationships, getting girls, finding other forms of happiness, learning how to meditate and stuff that doesn’t necessarily have to be associated with enlightenment, I am still going to release a lot of videos on that. Sign up, stay tuned and I will see you soon.
