  1. @liminal_luke These are some very interesting questions and I like to answer them from my perspective and invite others to invite those from theirs. What has been most difficult for you about the pandemic? The feeling that the world has changed forever. Like the feeling after 9/11 but even stronger. We all seemed isolated and the feeling of freedom was lost. I also missed going to clients, both being in a different place and talking to people. Being with my wife for 24/7 was also hard. After a while the lines blur where I end and she begins. What have you learned about yourself during the pandemic? That I want to help people more. I aided a lot of people with filling in their PUA. It got me to think of getting a law degree and made me go back to school to get my Bachelor degree. Although it was already an ongoing process, I finally realized I am an artist in nature. I also learned that I neglected the fact that I am an introvert and need alone time to recharge and accomplish things. I further learned how "busy" hectic society is, and that is not healthy or productive. How have you maintained connections with other people during the pandemic? I froze my ass of in my backyard in this Chicago winter, but we still had people over. I also connected to people by helping them with paperwork. I still talked to people, only outside instead of inside. I used my phone more. How have you taken care of yourself during the pandemic? I started college, walked in nature and had the time to rethink my life. I would say that for us the pandemic had a huge silver lining. I made a home office in the basement and realized I needed this secluded space for years. I also shifted my goals from what society considers successful to what my soul considers fruitful. I also see a shift in the people around me. A change in priorities.
  2. Change the world now

    Who else is just tired of the nonsense of the world? By non-sense, I mean the non sensical system that we are slaves to that feeds off of us... the entire global financial system. I'd like to find a way to live outside of it, maybe plant a seed to change it someday. Could it be possible if some of us started to exclusively live off the land? " When the tao is lost, there is goodness. When goodness is lost, there is morality. When morality is lost, there is ritual. Ritual is the husk of true faith, the beginning of chaos."
  3. Do I have the ability to act on the world to add, change, or stop certain phenomena? Or am I completely a victim of circumstances and forces larger than myself?
  4. What is the book that lead to a change into your perspective of life and taught you lessons or practices that helped you in your journey? For me, it was: The power of now and practicing the power of now by Eckhart tolle. It taught me about mindfulness and the present moment and how to be aware in my life.
