I went from suuuper pissed off to kind of confused to starting to see the light to angry again to acceptance to anger at what my "being a good person" has gotten me, to depressed about how the world actually is to acceptance. And that last state is pretty peaceful, still a little bit of bittersweet that people can't be cooler, but still better to know than not. All of the above is ego, until the last part
I really smiled when I read this.
Nicely put StephenP, I enjoyed your whole post.
I learned that the learning that goes on here is way beyond "getting chics dude"
You better believe it
When I write my stuff, it does not come from that place... It comes from EVERYTHING!
To sum it up for the class, it's pretty much either ego - or - observing. Both can't happen at the same time.
Out of Finsterniss into the Light
Nice quote and nicely put. As has been said quite a few times.
As the words say, this is not observing, this is looking at them - through a lens. That lens being the ego. And when the ego is involved, it is creepy, or at least not comfortable.
If I'm observing it's just facts. No judgement.
Another one for others to read.
Very cool, my problem (and maybe this belongs in a new thread)
Make a new thread then, simples
To your credit, you were eventually able to put your ego aside and allow yourself to grow some more...that is a HUGE step...one that most men would NEVER take.
I FULLY AGREE WITH THIS.

Bottom line is this: the skill set that 'Grinus and I purport to everyone here can be used in almost any other facet of day-to-day life.
I edited this because I make no bones about this being about each man, not the women.
As Kidd mentioned, once you get YOUR shit sorted, the women will come.
The women are a distraction from you getting YOUR shit sorted.
As I got better with observing, my brain just naturally began to apply it to everything...and it really just kind of went from there. When questions would finally get answers...those answers would raise yet more questions. It never gets old... the observation, analyzation and practical application of human behavior in modern society is the most interesting thing in the world to me.
Yup, it is so interesting and you never reach the bottom of the rabbit hole, it keeps going deeper.
I could easily devote several lifetimes to this subject.
It wasn't all peaches and cream...and (and I know 'Grinus has too) had to face and accept a lot of harsh truths on the way...that just comes with the territory.
Plenty of very bitter pills to swallow.
Plenty of harsh truths.
Plenty of epiphanies which lead off in other directions.
Plenty of FUN!
How did YOU guys get there? (I mean without the help of you and 'Grinus and everyone else here I could have gone my whole life not learning what I did here in what, a month?
