Awesome. Wish the 30 challenge audio wouldn’t pop up in the background while I’m randomly on the site though.

I would buy all of these but they’re too expensive.

If you had an email collector on your homepage I would have signed up. Something like Launchrock or something.

NOW THIS IS A FUCKING POST! THIS IS THE SHIT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR. THANKS BEN! I’M GONNA CHECK OUT YOUR WEBSITE N SHIT.
2016-02-29 @ 14:56:22
I mean to be honest, the post did come off a bit rehashed, no offense Jordan because I get your point. But hopefully it got some people thinking and reflecting, and that’s valuable. Still, I’d rather this post be about spiritual bypassing ;).
2016-02-29 @ 14:50:15
This guy’s tone is completely confrontational but for some reason I’m not offended at all. It’s nice to have someone unintentionally play devil’s advocate as to further the discussion. The world runs rampant with depression and dissatisfaction. The system is broken and it shows in our well-being. There are now more options than ever to escape an entire life of busy work. But with that comes a lot of people trying these better options and a lot of failure. Jordan pointed out the difficulty but I can’t stress it enough, do these things on the side until they prove to meet your needs. Monetizing a blog or website is INSANELY difficult and I’d guess 1 in 1,000 or potentially much less are profitable. HE has a few hundred thousand followers and I don’t think anyone is rich, just to put it in perspective. I don’t know how to say it really, trying to bounce back to the main subject, but it seems so insanely wrong that our human experience should be mostly spent doing something we hate 40 hours of every week until we are no longer able. I have escaped this way of life, and I am doing pretty well. So if you’re unhappy with your life situation, fucking change it.

HOW is #16 intermediate? Is the author a god of some sort?
This is an absolutely incredible article. I can’t wait to integrate these challenges into my daily life. I believe having a conversation with a stranger will be most beneficial for me. We get anxiety over these things and it’s ALMOST NEVER as bad as it seems. I’m sure there are other good social challenges such as, each day do something that makes you the center of attention, or each day ask someone of the sex you are interested in for their number (This one would be even harder for girls!).
Thanks for this!!!
2016-02-18 @ 19:24:40
Take the time to say thank you if you liked this post. Thank you for taking the time to write this. LOVED IT! And learned a lot reading it.
2016-02-18 @ 19:00:07
I’ve definitely gotten into those thought loops, big time. If a conversation keeps going in circles and you can’t come to a conclusion, whether it be out loud or in your head, give it up or come back to it later.
Be with your closest friends. Make sure it’s with people that accept you. This is big.
It’s okay to tell someone if you’re having bad thoughts or it’s taking you in a negative direction. Ask for a hug or have them calm you down. Usually they will do both without asking :).
And finally, DO HEAVY DOSES! GO FUCKING BIG! I’ve gone to new dimensions, become a floating void in the darkness, and found bliss in nothingness. Not just an outer body experience, an outer space experience! Mushrooms have been life changing. I am compassionate and caring and couldn’t be happier. Just, let, go.
Oh and #27. I don’t know what I’d do without that mind blowing insight.
2016-02-05 @ 08:09:01
So just don’t stay up to date on current events? Are there any unbiased news sources out there? BTW, I’ve never read anything this long in my life, so congratulations to you.
2015-12-28 @ 14:12:46
Holy fuck. I don’t know if this is hogwash or the most insightful thing ever. You used the word fulcrum so I’ll lean towards the latter.
2015-12-28 @ 14:03:01
Am I not seeing the comments? I hate this new layout. Can we go back to the Reddit style?
2015-12-15 @ 09:23:49
I always thought the main cause of these suicide bombers was being raised as a fundamentalist from a very young age. When you’re raised this way from birth, it’s all you know so you believe it. It’s like being raised as a devout Catholic from birth by your parents. You’re going to believe it no matter what. You would be brainwashed to accept that as your truth and the crazy part is, if it was me or you born into that life, we’d be doing the exact same thing.
But I believe this article is focusing on the outsiders who are recruited into these terrorist organizations. Still wanted to provide my perspective while we’re on the subject.
2015-12-15 @ 09:14:51
Not always. I believe in our future.
2015-10-23 @ 12:50:09
Identifying your physiological reactions to your anxiety only seems like step one of the solution. I feel like I’d identify how my body reacts to these negative things and then go, “Okay… what now?” I understand this identification allows you to separate your mind from these reactions, but that alone is supposed to make you feel better?
2015-10-23 @ 12:00:13
Thank you for the insightful truth about science. As for the actual theory or potential theory here? Is there a way to explain it simply?
2015-10-16 @ 01:25:57
2015-10-16 @ 01:02:58
Can someone explain this in layman’s terms please?
2015-10-11 @ 03:54:46
I want to share this article but I hate doing it when there’s typos. Sorry super great article but just being honest.
2015-09-29 @ 06:15:58
But I’ll be honest this was really helpful to my psyche.
2015-09-29 @ 06:09:39
I’ll give you a hint, it’s SO CLICHÉ.
2015-09-26 @ 06:51:59
I wake up everyday in utter amazement of everything. The planet, the galaxy, the universe, all operating under these laws, and progressing as life exists and advances. Finally, a great refreshing read of someone who feels the same way and can use a whole different set of words to articulate his feelings. Thank you so much for this! Throughout this whole article I just felt like I was gaining knowledge. Your writing and vocabulary are nothing short of amazing.
2015-09-26 @ 06:24:50
This was an absolutely amazing read. Grounded me a bit, exactly what I needed. All those mushroom trips had me feelin some type of way ;)
2015-09-24 @ 00:00:52
I’ve been saying this for years… but in much different less compelling words.
2015-09-23 @ 23:59:23
What about an introverted extrovert? I grew up extremely outgoing, open, and talkative person, but then as I grew older and certain events happened I became more shy and to myself.
2015-09-21 @ 17:35:47
This was really good. How well spoken too.
2015-08-28 @ 14:37:53
This video could be summed up in one word: Technology. Our advanced technology separates us and prevents us from doing these anti-depression techniques.

I must say this was beautiful. Props to this man.
2015-05-30 @ 08:55:40
Good post thanks.
2015-05-24 @ 07:26:25
I logged in just to say thanks. I learned a lot (like 20 new words too) and I appreciate your insight.
2015-05-18 @ 21:28:16
I love this site. Thank you for taking the time.
2015-05-07 @ 15:28:19
I wish people could focus more on the good that’s going on in the world while still perpetuating change, instead of always, “We’re destroying our planet”, “Materialist consumerism”, “Egotistical”, etc. It’s all true, but we’re a young species trying to figure it all out. I like focusing on the positive changes that we’ve made :)

What are the groups and forums for discussing ayahuasca?

I’ve recently learned that the best way to overcome procrastination is to observe the justification your mind makes to try to put it off, acknowledge what is happening, and begin to rewire your brain by doing it now. Throw your plate away NOW, take the trash out NOW, and do that little task that you could easily put off and do later NOW. The only way to keep your list of tasks from always building up is to take action now. This article sums this up quite nicely.

Who the hell is capable of making these awesome animations? Love it.
2015-03-02 @ 12:12:22
Truly amazing and exactly the information I’m interested in. Sorry for calling the version of you that was in your unhappy state “broken” on that other video. I didn’t mean anything by it except to use your past as a benchmark for how far you’ve come. This video was perfect, keep them and all your self-promotion coming ;)
2015-02-21 @ 20:20:59
Yeah, crushed a bunch of them that night. By no means was it all pleasant leading up to this experience though. I’ve had this before where I’ll experience what I realized to be a panic attack, not like I feel like I’m having a heart attack or anything, but that I feel like I’m going to kill myself (well this got dark quick). I’m not suicidal, it’s like another entity came over me and was controlling my body trying to get me to do it. This is a variation of a panic attack that I’ve had once before (three times total I think). It is absolutely terrifying and I just lay on the floor saying don’t go in the kitchen (knives) because in my head I think if I’m near sharp objects I could uncontrollably do it. I never actually act on it. I eventually went into this unconscious world that began with fear and lead to the profound experience I described in the post above. I also experienced something I wonder if you’ve experienced. I kept having this thought in my head, and I kept saying to myself, stop thinking about that thought. And I would keep thinking about it and thinking about it and it was making me totally crazy. So overall, I feel I am a bit emotionally unstable and weak, but I so desire these experiences. I am on a healing journey and these psychedelics have had a PROFOUND impact on my life. So I’m at a bit of a crossroads here…
2015-02-21 @ 20:07:07
I am very happy to see such a broken person find joy, or at least discover the path to true happiness. My life is surrounded by people who require healing, whether they know it or not. I can feel their pain.
I am undergoing a healing process. The beginning of this came from self-awareness and spiritual awareness. I believe I am the most kind and compassionate person in the world, when it is convenient for me… For example, I go into every situation looking to be kind, but if I am mistreated, I begin suffering and or lash out the person who caused it. I understand my identification with the ego and am not pleased with it. By identifying with my ego, I create a life of anxiety and discomfort. I truly believe I have great intentions, the power within, and a fantastic outlook on the world. But my past looms and dictates, which causes my pain.
This video was truly inspiring. I am graduating college this semester and will be taking a trip into the jungle sometime after when I see fit. I am definitely still fearful of Ayahuasca, but at the same time it is the thing I am most excited in the world to do :). I will be watching more of your videos and hopefully we can chat sometime so I can learn more about your journey. Thanks :)
2015-02-21 @ 19:35:14
Your story is very inspiring. I believe I had a subconscious understanding of the discomfort value chain, and I believe it really works. Thanks for the motivation to keep striving to be the person I want to be.

Yet to try DMT. I’ve had an OBE with mushrooms that was about as intense as it could be. I was certain I had left earth and was never going to see anyone I knew again. My life on earth was just a spec in our timeless existence. I knew my body was gone but I still had a speaking consciousness that lived on. I learned to find the joy in existence and felt I was God. I’m so glad I still remember a lot of it. That experience will stick with me forever. I cant wait for the next one. I really want to try DMT. Do you remember the whole experience?
2015-02-15 @ 15:57:47
Enjoyed this, very informative.
2015-02-10 @ 10:50:43
What are your beliefs on this? Temporary DMT trip or a bliss that is continual post death?
2015-02-10 @ 10:21:54
So are you telling me this is happening inside my body? GET THESE ALIENS OUT OF ME!
2015-02-10 @ 10:18:18
“Participants in the study had an average of 20 years meditating”. So you’re telling me my one month of meditating isn’t enough?!

This article contradicts the teachings of “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie by saying you should criticize people when they’ve committed wrongdoings. I believe that criticism breeds resentment and mostly causes people to be angry and think poorly of you. They may not show it or even realize it, but subconsciously you are attacking their ego and since most identify with the ego, it translates to resentment. I am faced with this dilemma often. Someone mistreats me and I either “people please” in my seeking of approval and avoid all confrontation, or I criticize them and they usually resent me for it. I want to be loving and compassionate all the time and not tell people how to live, but sometimes I think criticism will really benefit them longterm. You may say that close friends should be able to handle your constructive criticism, but if it does harm to our relationship over time and their outlook of me becomes poorer and poorer naturally due to the way their brain works, I don’t know if it’s worth it. Not all of my friends are open minded HEathens ;). Any insight?

What’s the movie with the kid in the office and the fat red haired lady is snapping at him?

I love this video. I watched it twice. But it’s really just a well done version of what we already know. Cliché almost. If I showed this to any person who grinds a 9 to 5 and hates their life, they would all ask the same question: “Then what do you propose I do?” I don’t see any immediate solution, at least not one I can convince a friend of. We keep hearing change, change, change, and believe me, I am working on changing myself and making the people around me smile as much as I can. But what other kind of big change can we be a part of? What kind of solution is there for someone grinding the 9 to 5 barely making ends meet? In absolutely no way am I trying to bring anyone down. I love the world and I love all of you. But I would really like to further this conversation, mostly because I’m still a young learner looking for direction and knowledge <3
2015-02-02 @ 09:40:33
I didn’t understand one word of that.
