The Metamorphosis Of My Work

By Leo Gura - April 14, 2023

This is the 10-year anniversary of my running So I have been doing much reflecting on the nature of my work — what it’s really about — and how to adjust and evolve it to best serve you. Here are some of my thoughts:

The only function of my teachings is to help you deepen your understanding of reality and reduce your self-deception. If at any point in studying my work you find some parts which you feel inhibit either of those, I want you to ignore those parts and follow your own truth.

My goal is not to make you believe what I believe, but to motivate you to undertake a profound personal investigation of Reality and Mind — the deepest investigation possible. The work is not in adopting beliefs but in doing contemplation. Be careful not to frame contemplation as some extraneous labor, like some annoying homework I’m forcing you to do when you would rather be playing video games. Reframe contemplation as the game! Savor the opportunity to explore the workings of Consciousness. Otherwise you will just fall into beliefs and ideology like every other fool.

We are not interested in spiritual or philosophical ideology here. What saves you is the contemplation and personal investigation you freely and joyfully engage in. That’s what purifies you from all the human bullshit and illusions. That’s where the truth comes from. The truth doesn’t come from me. You are going to use your own mind to purify itself, like a bodybuilder uses years of lifting to sculpt his body. No ideology adds muscle to the body, only lifting does. And the whole point of bodybuilding is not to reach some final result but to enjoy the entire process of lifting. To fall in love with lifting. So fall in love with contemplation! You will be doing it for the next 40 years. There is no way to succeed in that without loving it. Stop racing ahead to some imagined results. Slow down and relish the process. THAT is my teaching. I am not here to teach you things to believe. You don’t need to believe anything, just fucking contemplate for 40 years.

My job is to inspire you to contemplate reality in the deepest ways possible, and to feed grist into your contemplation mill. Let’s you and I just spend the next 40 years contemplating together and see where we end up! Trust that if you do this diligently you will end up somewhere extraordinary.

My work is going to significantly evolve and mature over the next year or two. I know I’ve said this before, and some will accuse me of saying that but not actually doing it. Some might even say my work has devolved or gotten less mature — more arrogant, more hostile. Nothing could be further from the truth. You just have to distinguish between surface appearances and deep internal evolution. When I talk about evolving my work I am not talking about shallow stuff like adopting a more pleasant spiritual veneer in my behavior or manner of communication — as most people would like me to do. To get the kind of evolution and maturity I am looking for, I’ve had to dig very deep and make drastic internal realizations and shifts in how I relate to the entire field of spirituality and mankind as a whole. I had to jailbreak my mind from 10 years of human spiritual crap that I was taught. Only now are things getting serious as my mind achieves complete sovereignty and independence. This was a huge internal accomplishment for me over the last year — it required a lot of non-public work — and it’s still not over. My audience does not comprehend how significant this was for me. Over the last year I escaped the gravitational pull of the entire intellectual tradition of humankind, both West and East, to finally fly free and alone in the vastness of deep space — which is exactly where I need and want to be. Although the process is not yet complete.

The evolution and maturation of my work is not going to be a straight upward line from my audience’s POV. Sometimes the way I act or things I say will seem like regression. That’s because serious stuff is being worked out internally. I care about the internal much more than the external. Repressed, emotional stuff is getting worked out. I am going through a process of becoming radically independent, authentic, and truthful — which requires shedding old layers of thought, belief, and habit. I’m just letting you know so you don’t freak out from the turbulence. It just so happens that the destination we’re flying to has lots of choppy clouds and there will be turbulence. Don’t worry, I got a solid handle on it, but there may be more turbulence over the next year or two as I metamorphosize and settle into my final form. Everything up to this point was just my cocoon stage.

As I’ve said in my videos, if you want to build high you must lay your foundation deep. So that’s what I’ve been doing. At times it may look selfish from your POV because I am focusing more on me than on serving you. But that is so that I can serve mankind a much more profound way in the future. Don’t take it too personally.
