I don't think this REDART is speaking from expirience and this looks like a good example of the blind leading the blind to me. While you can't go wrong with nofap, exercising, and learning stuff, that poster seems to have a naive idea about some things. I don't especially recommend reading the news or watching a documentary made in the last 20 years for example. I don't wholly discourage drugs or prostitution either, because they are things that really could make you more socially successful. I pretty much lived that advice from my teenage years until early adulthood and I was hardly a super-chad. In fact, it left me socially isolated. If I wanted a GF, if that was the goal, then all I would have had to do is unironically smoke the herbal Jew. In fact, that would probably still work now that I think about it. It's the perfect excuse to socialize and lower a woman's inhibitions.

>People speak of ego death as a joyful, liberating experience.
Ego death is a LARP. As long as you are living and breathing you are exercising your ego by having a distinct consciousness. Even if they've logically sussed out that they're part of a greater whole, all their doing is manifesting their desires according to a different belief system.

>Even if they've logically sussed out that they're part of a greater whole, all their doing is manifesting their desires according to a different belief system.
If you kill the mind and ego along with it, then there's no desires manifesting from any belief system. Desire at that point would be absolutely pure and free from societal conditioning.

>As long as you are living and breathing you are exercising your ego by having a distinct consciousness.

The root of the ego is the I-thought, which is the very first thought that arises in the majority of situations. If one is keen enough they can find the I-thought on focus on it, and it'll vanish like all illusions do under scrutiny. Then there's no longer John Smith doing so and so, but only raw existence. One is still embodied, but the sensation of self as other is dead.

How would you even separate that? If you would agree that everything is part of a whole, then what's even 'impure' about societal conditioning, or anything else for that matter? Everything developed as part of nature, Mister God, or the demiurge, or what have you.

What do you actually mean by this? I need a concrete example of what someone might do before and after to understand this. In any case, no matter what, it is inherently a belief system. It is something that is believed, and they are acting in accordance with that belief. I'm confident that any objection to this would be little more than semantics. It's funny, because despite ostensibly believing similar things, I've come to a radically different conclusion than the enlightenment crowed, and that is, it functionally doesn't matter, because you were always going to think what you were going to think, and you were always going to do what you were going to do. It has absolutely no bearing on your life, because it literally can't be helped anyway. Even if I'm just playing a role in Mister God's play, I must say that I enjoy it quite a bit for the most part. I was just fated to revel in having an ego, clearly much more so than the sadsacks who often adopt your stance after a life of guilt and regret.

>How would you even separate that?
There's many different methods for it, however a swift short-cut is to simply fully withdraw from society. This man here went into the forest as a young man in the 80s, fully ignorant of all spiritual matters and lived as a hermit for 27 years.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Thomas_Knight
>Knight was largely reluctant to express any inkling of motives or insights gained through his experience, but he did offer that "solitude bestows an increase in something valuable … my perception. But … when I applied my increased perception to myself, I lost my identity. There was no audience, no one to perform for … To put it romantically, I was completely free."

>If you would agree that everything is part of a whole, then what's even 'impure' about societal conditioning, or anything else for that matter? Everything developed as part of nature, Mister God, or the demiurge, or what have you.

It's true that all of reality is a manifestation of God's will, and it's his will that some of us descend and mire in ignorance, while others he calls back into knowledge. From the highest perspective, there's no good or evil, it's all simply the play of God, however from a conventional perspective, certain states of consciousness are more painful than others and it's better to strive to free ourselves from this suffering.

>What do you actually mean by this? I need a concrete example of what someone might do before and after to understand this.

Christopher Knight is one example of a person that experienced an ego-less state. From what I understand he mostly just sat around his camp, enjoying the sheer state of existence, did mundane survival stuff, and read books occasionally. Ramana Maharshi is another such person, who lived a life as a normal person until he had the experience of ego-death, then after his mindset was radically changed he mostly just sat still, immersed in ecstasy removed from the condition of his physical body. In fact he first became famous when he was discovered in a state of deep meditation in the basement of a temple with ants eating his legs and hiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Most people do use a belief system to come to the state of no beliefs, however not all Christopher Knight again. Black and white clouds both obscure the sun. Golden chains and hempen ropes both equally bind. So good and bad thoughts, good and bad beliefs equally ensnare the mind. The ideal is a state free from the veil of belief dubbed "nirvikalpa" in the school I study, and it's very much possibly, and immensely pleasurable to exist in such a state. Reality is radiant and beautiful when you open your eyes and there's a world free from all mental weights and shackles.

>it functionally doesn't matter, because you were always going to think what you were going to think, and you were always going to do what you were going to do. It has absolutely no bearing on your life, because it literally can't be helped anyway.

Yes, our mindbodies are the sum of our experiences and conditioning. They're temporary physical vessels damned to obey their programming by the laws of causality. However fate causes things to happen to us that can dramatically alter the way we think, behave and act. Sometimes even just a conversation at the right time.

>Even if I'm just playing a role in Mister God's play, I must say that I enjoy it quite a bit for the most part. I was just fated to revel in having an ego, clearly much more so than the sadsacks who often adopt your stance after a life of guilt and regret.

Everyone revels in egoism and sin, that's the danger. It feels good in the short term, sometimes even for many years. Go and open up instagram, tiktok or any other social app and you'll see tens of thousands of people reveling in the cult of attention and ME ME ME. Every single time there's a 17 year old thot taking a selfie she's celebrating having an ego. For those girls it's great until their youth fades, then it turns to pain. All drugs turn into pain eventually.

What are your favorite and least favorite household chores to do?

Personally I don't mind washing the dishes so much; I don't use the machine because it takes the same amount of time to clean them off with a sponge and rinse them off manually as it takes to place them in the dishwasher. It's redundant. Runner up would be cleaning/dusting surfaces. I hate when my computer desk gets dusty over time and really enjoy seeing it clean every once in a while.

My least favorite chore would probably be laundry. Putting it in the washing machine and dryer isn't shit but having to fold them and put them away is hella weak.

Just today I cleaned the gutters and mowed the lawn too, goddamn the roof gets hot but otherwise nbd.

How about you fellas?

so for the first time in my life I think I may actually be addicted to alcohol. I started drinking at 14 but really didn't have that many opportunities until college. my froshman year I went hog wild and almost flunked out. turning 21 was pretty anti-climatic because drinking was old hat by then. I was just a moderate drinker for a while after college because I was working all the time. I didn't drink on work days, rarely drank two days in a row. I do most of my drinking alone because I do most of everything alone. the times I was drinking with others I treated it like a competition for some reason. I always felt like I had to drink more than everyone else and that kind of became my reputation. it lead to more than a couple really embarrassing moments with friends.. but since I rarely hung out with friends it wasn't that big of a deal.

nothing really changed until the last several years my work became easier and easier while I cared about it less and less. drinking for me has never been about 'why' but 'why not'. 'I can't drink today because I have things to do tomorrow.' all of these came to a head when covid arrived and I was home all day every day. now there are zero expectations from my work. I've been bored out of my mind and the only thing that makes the time pass is getting drunk then playing guitar or fucking around online.

I wake up thinking, 'fuck I drank too much last night I should give it a rest today' but by 5-6pm that feeling has gone and I start thinking 'it's no big deal.. let's have a drink.' occasionally I decide to make rules about how I drink like only drink a pint of liquor or only drink when I'm out with other people. this never works. if I skip a day of drinking then the next day I feel like 'shiiiiit you didn't even drink yesterday so getting drunk tonight is cool.'

I don't think I have physical addiction yet but sometimes I'm not so sure. sometimes I wake up with the shakes. a lot of mornings after drinking I wake up and my heart is pounding and I'm super anxious. I'll have to take a benzo to keep from having a panic attack. I don't feel like I have to quit but I know I'm overdoing it and I'm afraid I'll reach a point where I won't be able to stop. if I do ever stop drinking though what little social life I have will stop because that is what all of my social activities have been based on. my friends are really just drinking buddies.

can anyone relate?
