    I'm really impressed by the depth of your ideas and thoughts . I'm only 16 , but I feel we've got many qualities and hobbies in common . I'm a very active person , doing many activities , but I'm seriously lacking balance and being very distracted by my phone . I really hope - and I'm sure-your creative videos will make me improve my life ! Your fan from Tunisia !!

    I tended to date girls with unique personalities. The most beautiful girl was in college. And for a few years after. She had been raised with the idea that she would be the child who would take vows and join a convent (yes, even in the latter half of the 20th century that stuff went on). Anyway, "Hey let's go see a movie, there is a little indi theater I want to check out". OK, it didn't help that the guy sitting in front of us smelled of M/D 20-20 (his dog smelled worse), was eating a pomegranate and spitting seeds on the floor. The movie was Zardoz (which I actually think is an interesting movie). Unfortunately, the opening lines are "The penis is bad, the gun is good." She walked out. It was not the last time I saw her but the relationship never went anywhere after that. Several years later a bunch of people from my masters class were sitting around having a beer after an exam, we started talking about where we worked. One of the guys said he worked at the company I knew she did. "Oh, hey, do you know " ...... his response was "Oh man, she is weird." .... my shock did not lighten the mood "Yeah ..... we use to be a thing." He didn't talk to me the rest of the night. Haven't seen her in like 30 years. I hope she found a nice guy, or gal, or convent or something and had a great life.

    For the first 62 years of my life, I put the needs of others before my own. Striving to get good grades, striving to keep jobs, striving to get better jobs. Some I look back and have nothing but positive soul growing thoughts of, caring for my parents. Spending 8 years one on one caring for my mother. Fulfilling a promise I made to her to go back to school. I am now a doctor of medicine, but can't practice, because no one gives residencies to 62 year olds. And now I am adrift. Yeah, time to take care of me, put me first. It is not a skill I had ever learned and I still have not mastered. I suspect I will still not totally understand what it means when I die.

    Loving your vids! Even though they were produced a while back they’re speaking volumes to me today. Thank you The one with your mama by the way, wow! That completely re rooted me. Just hearing people saying all of the things I’ve always so deeply believed in, has reminded me how OK it is to allow that depth to be a part of us I live in England in a town near London, and here in the UK I’ve never felt at home, whilst at home. I’m born and bred here but also have Greek blood and I’ve always felt like a fish out of water here I love this place. But I don’t fully resonate. The “stiff upper lip” is not just a phrase. Lol. It’s very real! And I often feel very judged for truly being myself, philosophical, experiencing emotions fully, questioning and exploring etc I just love how You are so expressive and open, and in tune with your own truth rather than your environmental truth as such. If we allow ourselves to be shaped by each environment we encounter, we became shape-less! Your mind has an amazing shape. I’m looking forward to more of your vids

    I find it very interesting how you come to these rather spiritual conclusions just through striving for mental clarity. In a sense, the spiritual or mystical path to self- mastery has the exact same end goal as the process you are engaging in. Full mental clarity, unified awareness, single-pointed focus, equilibrium of consciousness seem to be all the same thing - a stage in psychological development. This involves both the inner and the outer world of each person's reality. I believe that people that are consciously striving for this goal, like you are, are the ones that make up the people of the Aeon of Horus, prophesied by Aleister Crowley. I probably got a few raised eyebrows from that last sentence, since I have yet to find out how to behave in this niche of lifestyle and personality :) Methods to achieve absolute control over mind, emotions, body and will do exist since thousands of years, not being engaged with, as the words "tradition" or "religion" rather evoke ideas of doctrines and unrealistic stories about talking snakes. People today are trying to get to that same state of being that humanity has been working towards since the dawn of their existence. I want to make those people, who may read this comment and are unaware of these esoteric and occult techniques, aware of the vast material that is out there. To recap: The goal of achieving perfect mental clarity (and there is such a thing as perfection) through this type of lifestyle, co-relates to the goal of achieving a certain state of psychological development through either mystical, occult, esoteric, whatever-you-wanna-call-it techniques.

    Per staying in your lane at 6:34 most importantly is "unless somebody's asking for it". Because we all learn from each other or the bit about show me who your friends are wouldn't be true. Best said is, "When the student is ready the teacher will appear." And you can learn some pretty deep stuff from the most innocuous sources.

    I love the idea that you concentrate on improving yourself. Not in a mean way, if someone asks for help then give it whole heartedly. But you have enough of your hands working on and improving yourself. I realise you didn't say that. I'm struggling with words today 😅. I think I'm going to use this thought a lot. I often want to help others but maybe I could do with some help for myself for a bit.

    My worst date was either the time a guy decided to greet me like a kiss and it felt like get my face sucked by an octopus. Or the girl who stood be up and proceeded to block me on social media while I was standing outside the bar waiting for her, which nearly made me decide to stop trying to date for a while but then I started talking to someone and just... knew... our first date was awkward as hell and we barely spoke for the first hour but it is now one of the best days of my life, a year and a half later I still... know.

    Hey! A newbie to your channel and I am absolutely inspired by your down to earth, well-read, articulate and mindful way of communicating your thoughts and ideas. Your work has such a refreshing pace to engage with, and I often find myself reaching for my notebook - rewinding, pausing, and making a note. Thank you for the amazing work that you do, and thank you for being a pen and paper, poet, painter soul - and somehow merging that with truly brilliant video procuction style. As to this particular piece, I was reminded of a quote in Shantaram (an incredible book!) : "Fate gives us three teachers, three friends, three enemies, and three great loves in our lives. But these twelve are always disguised, and we can never know which one is which until we've loved them, left them, or fought them."

    When I was 18 I accidentally and very innocently led a guy to believe we were going on a date to a play but I was just inviting him to my church for a play. He was so excited. He told his family. They all wanted to meet me but I had no idea why. When we got there I introduced him to my boyfriend. He was so mad! He told me off the whole way as I drove him home. All I could do was apologize profusely as he recounted all the ways I led him on which really made me laugh because it was simple friendly things like always saying hi.

    The funny thing about watching a twenty-something waxing all philosophical and being serious and “wise” is that you discover once you hit your fifties and sixties that you actually didn’t know squat. As serious and earnest as you may have been about getting things “right”, you realize that you will never really know if you did things right or not. You never get to play out that other choice you could have made back then. We all just make the choice that’s the best for us in the moment with the information we have at the time.

    Worst first date # 1 - the crying Korean. Long story short, through the process of a conversation over sushi, we discovered that I knew his ex-wife. Which he then told me all about their failed marriage which leads to him breaking down and crying. I honestly didn't know how to react to that and spent a good deal of time talking him down and then getting the cheque. Months later, I ran into him at a grocery store and he apologized for his outburst and asked for a 2nd chance. I politely declined. There's a #2 worst date but it involves someone not wearing pants.

    Agree with the third point. At the age of 23 I'm yet to have a relationship, purely because I don't think I can truly love somebody until I love myself. It's been a long path, but I'm definitely getting there. Largely due to self-consciousness, I care too much about what people think of me. Hopefully, I'll get to a stage in my personal development and career that I'll feel comfortable meeting somebody. Everything happens for a reason I suppose.

    Thank you so much for this video. It's inspired me to make a video of my own about relationships. I'm admittedly not the best at relationships because I haven't fully developed a relationship with myself. I'm someone who preaches self-love and that's something I want to focus on this year. I want to focus on the relationship with myself and this video has really impacted me and I will carry these 3 lessons with me for the rest of my life. Be kind and love always.
