MGTOW in a nutshell

Fewer Men Are Getting Married

Fewer Men Are Getting Married
Six Reasons Why Men Are Avoiding Marriage, with Helen Smith, Ph.D.

Men not marrying? How deep does “the problem” go?

Best bit: It’s the expectation that the environment and the men in it should adjust to suit women’s needs rather than expecting women to adjust themselves to the environment.

Journey to Inner Peace – Samarpan Meditation with Shree Shivkrupanand Swami 9th Oct 2015

Click to get the kindle edition

Notes:

– Story of 5 blind men feeling an elephant to identify it and how they all had their own perspective.
– Yoga is not only the physical stretching. Yoga is incomplete without meditation. After the physical you should go in.
– Start looking at the sky for 30 mins. Expand your consciousness.
– People who meditate have a 20 foot world of peace and protection.
– Story of a tablespoon of ink in a glass compared to a lake. Glass signifying alone, lake signifying collectively.
– Story of how good pipes gush with water so similarly be hollow and empty.
– Someone asked about finding the path or the right guru which really struck me as it’s the first time in all the talks I’ve been to where someone asked this but when asked later they just brushed it off as meh just curious. Anyway main point I took from it is that you should go to Shirdi wherever that is and really ask. Then an advocate closest to you will appear.
– Sit on earth for an hour when you feel sick or disconnected. You need to earth yourself. (Mom used to force me to walk barefoot on grass for the same)
– When meditating in the morning do it alone. No one should be around 25 feet of you when you do. Though you can sit with your cat or dog or COW (no not wife). Evening you can sit collectively.

Elephant and The Blind Men Parable

ELEPHANT AND THE BLIND MEN

Once upon a time, there lived six blind men in a village. One day the villagers told them, “Hey, there is an elephant in the village today.”

They had no idea what an elephant is. They decided, “Even though we would not be able to see it, let us go and feel it anyway.” All of them went where the elephant was. Everyone of them touched the elephant.

“Hey, the elephant is a pillar,” said the first man who touched his leg.

“Oh, no! it is like a rope,” said the second man who touched the tail.

“Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree,” said the third man who touched the trunk of the elephant.

“It is like a big hand fan” said the fourth man who touched the ear of the elephant.

“It is like a huge wall,” said the fifth man who touched the belly of the elephant.

“It is like a solid pipe,” Said the sixth man who touched the tusk of the elephant.

They began to argue about the elephant and everyone of them insisted that he was right. It looked like they were getting agitated. A wise man was passing by and he saw this. He stopped and asked them, “What is the matter?” They said, “We cannot agree to what the elephant is like.” Each one of them told what he thought the elephant was like. The wise man calmly explained to them, “All of you are right. The reason every one of you is telling it differently because each one of you touched the different part of the elephant. So, actually the elephant has all those features what you all said.”

“Oh!” everyone said. There was no more fight. They felt happy that they were all right.

The moral of the story is that there may be some truth to what someone says. Sometimes we can see that truth and sometimes not because they may have different perspective which we may not agree too. So, rather than arguing like the blind men, we should say, “Maybe you have your reasons.” This way we don’t get in arguments. In Jainism, it is explained that truth can be stated in seven different ways. So, you can see how broad our religion is. It teaches us to be tolerant towards others for their viewpoints. This allows us to live in harmony with the people of different thinking. This is known as the Syadvada, Anekantvad, or the theory of Manifold Predictions.

The TV and Your Brain … thanks Hems

Note: I’ve put it under health because I think it’s a HUGE one for mental health.

This is how the act of watching TV destroys your brain.

Have you ever overheard an intense or heart-wrenching discussion only to find out the talkers were actually hashing out the lives of fictional TV characters? Do you ever wonder why people are so easily beguiled into trusting the talking heads?

It might not be such a mystery when you find out how easy it is for TV programming – the waves it emits, the storytelling – to override basic brain function and even damage your body.

Reported earlier by Truthstream Media:

Back in 1969, a man named Herbert Krugman conducted a series of experiments regarding the effect of television on a person’s brainwaves. What he found was pretty startling:

“Krugman monitored a person through many trials and found that in less than one minute of television viewing, the person’s brainwaves switched from Beta waves — brainwaves associated with active, logical thought — to primarily Alpha waves. When the subject stopped watching television and began reading a magazine, the brainwaves reverted to Beta waves.”

‘Beta’ is considered a normal, awake state, while ‘Alpha’ waves are experienced in a deep relaxation or ‘daydreaming’ state. When in the Alpha state, a person is subjected to a passive learning experience with the right side of the brain at the wheel, leaving critical thinking skills behind.

When scientists study these effects, we often find out later that they were only trying to help corporate advertisers better influence you. They have even found that the brains of people watching movies together are snyced up! Is that a “syn” against individuality?

Jerry Mander also discussed the damages of unbridled technology like television in “Questions We Should Have Asked About Technology.” Even in the 1970s, he was arguing for the elimination of television. One of his reasons was the “death culture” – all the story lines, especially in the news were heading toward death obsession. Think about how that has changed in 40 years and what that does to already hopeless people? That’s entertainment?

Speaking of which, here is a video that shows how television affects your brain chemistry for the worst. Yes, the waves entrain your brain for the greatest suggestibility – but it gets worse. Your mind gets confused and derailed by the condensed and unrealistic story lines. The imagery creates plenty of stress hormones – like the constant release of adrenaline – but with no outlet because we consciously try to tell ourselves that it’s just a show. Apparently, the brain and body disagree.

Does that explain how TV creates an artificial “high” and addiction?

The Plug-In Drug is a book that explains your brain on television and computers in greater detail.

Have you given up television? What were the results, good or bad?
