Leo's Blog: Infinite Insights
Miscellaneous bits of wisdom about personal development, philosophy, epistemology, nonduality, life purpose, psychedelics, etc. Published randomly throughout the week.
Insights here are meant to be quick and half-baked. Consider these food for thought.
I've deliberately disabled comments to keep the blog streamlined. If you want to discuss any of the blog posts, you can do so here: Actualized.org Forum
Most people simply don't know about the basics of what mysticism is:
If you slit the throats of every human on the planet with your own hand, God's love for you would not diminish in the slightest. People are surprised by this. But can't you see that this is the highest love? This is the real test of one's love. If I can shake your love by slitting someone's throat, then look how fragile your love is! Look how limited! If God's love could be diminished in the slightest, that would mean that a higher love was possible, but if a higher love was possible then why would God not become that higher love until nothing higher was possible? Therefore God's love is Absolute. It is unshakable. There is nothing you can do to shake God's Love at all because the Absolute Truth is that there is no difference between anything, and God is perfectly conscious of this.
Total Consciousness = Truth = Love = God
So do not worry about sin, because sin does not exist. Sin is nothing more than bias within a finite mind. Become so unbiased that you realize that evil never existed. This is the highest Truth. Do not let egos or society gaslight you with their fragile, limited, and fear-based definitions of love. Do not settle for anything less than Absolute Love. No exceptions!
This is not a license to be an asshole or a criminal.
The epistemic madness train rolls on:
See, the fundamental mistake here is assuming that fact-checkers are supposed to call out "both sides" equally. But this shouldn't be the case at all if one side is lying more than the other. The problem is that when you're on the side which lies way more, you must lie to yourself that your side lies way more. And the best way to do that is to blame the fact-checkers for being biased. This is bias projection 101: when you are blatantly biased, just blame the other person for being biased while pretending like you aren't.
Notice how easily the mind deceives itself in this way.
Whenever you feel a knee-jerk impulse to call someone else biased, stop and ask yourself, "Could it be that this is actually my bias?" This is one of the things that distinguishes a fool from the wise. Characteristically, a fool is blind to his own biases.
What it's like telling a scientist that all of reality is imaginary:
Curt Jaimungal interviewed me on the nature of reality, consciousness, God, and Love:
We also plan on recording a Part 2 in the next week or two, stay tuned for that if you want to see more.
His channel features a lot of interesting, nerdy interviews with scientist and academic -types. Check it out if you're a nerd.
Gravity is the epitome of an unbiased thing.
Behold how unbias looks at the physical level. The human mind is so accustomed to bias that when we see unbias in action it looks almost spooky and supernatural. But of course unbias is the natural state of the Universe.
Notice the intrinsic beauty of symmetry. That's the beauty of God/Love/Infinity.
What makes a beautiful mind? Symmetry, evenness, wholeness, openness, selflessness, honesty.
What makes an ugly mind? Bias, fragmentation, closeness, selfishness, dishonesty.
What do you think would happen if you made a life-long commitment to developing a beautiful mind? What if your mind became as unbiased as gravity?
Have you ever wondered why the Earth, moon, sun, and soap bubbles are near perfect spheres? Because God pulls equally in all directions.

Here's a superb article explaining how propaganda works from the Consilience Project:
They have many serious articles that will boost your grasp of epistemology. Be sure to read them and take notes.
