This is not medical or psycho-therapeutic advice. Leo is not a licensed therapist.

Warning: Spiritual work is inherently risky and dangerous if misapplied or misunderstood. Actualized.org teachings are not suitable for people with serious mental disorders such as: suicidal depression, schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar, drug addiction, or other psychiatric or medical conditions. Leo's teachings assume you have a stable mind and life. If your mind is dysfunctional or ungrounded, these teachings may lead to a deterioration of your condition and even suicide if misapplied. Self-help and spirituality are not substitutes for professional treatment for such conditions. If spiritual work is causing your life to unravel in unhealthy ways, discontinue the work until your mind has stabilized and you are safe. Actualized.org teachings are very advanced and can easily be misunderstood and misapplied. Nothing Leo teaches ever promotes physical self-harm. Any time Leo talks about “facing one’s death” he is NOT talking about suicide or physically harming your body, but rather ego-death and spiritual awakening. Never confuse these two things.

Warning: Psychedelics are inherently risky and dangerous. Only use psychedelics if you are willing to take 100% responsibility for the consequences. Do not take psychedelics if you are too young, too immature, on mind-altering medication, or if you have a mental disorder. By listening to Leo you agree that Actualized.org is not responsible if you misuse psychedelics and injure yourself or others. If you decide to use psychedelics you must exercise extreme caution and carefully follow safety protocols. Leo’s use of psychedelics is always done with extreme caution and attention to safety. Treat psychedelics like a loaded gun. Never use psychedelics chronically. Never take psychedelics in high doses. Psychedelics will not effortlessly solve your deep psychological problems. The less grounded your mind is, the more selfish you are, the harsher psychedelics will be on you. Psychedelics can create deep existential crises. Do not take psychedelics unless you love the idea of deconstructing your mind and reality.

  1. I was nice seeing your face bro. I understand we are all human and nobody has all the answers but on the other hand I love hearing the answers that you have come up with.
    Stay strong bro hope everything is well in every way with you

    • Is Mr. Gura a spiritual teacher or a spiritual MASTER? 🤔

      If you are uncertain of the distinction between the two, I shall be MORE than happy to enlighten you. 😇

    • @Spiritual Psychotherapy Services I’m not sure I’m qualified to judge that but yes please enlighten me

      🐟 20. THE PRIESTHOOD:

      A PRIEST (“brāhmaṇa”, in Sanskrit) is defined as a man who promulgates teachings and performs rituals on behalf of a particular religious or metaphysical tradition. He should possess all saintly qualities, such as cleanliness (which, as they say, is “next to godliness”), peacefulness, austerity, intelligence, wisdom, renunciation, tolerance, patience, humility, and of course, moral uprightness and religiosity. This does not imply that a priest must possess those virtues to a perfect extent, but he ought to have each quality to at least a reasonably-high degree.

      Even if a man seems to be a genuine priest superficially, if he is severely lacking in even one of the clerical qualities, he cannot rightly be called a “priest”. Therefore, a dumb cleric or a dirty cleric does not exist, by definition, so be wary of the multitude of PHONEY “priests” in the world!

      There are literally hundreds of thousands of individuals in this world who claim to be religious leaders/teachers (“guru”, in Sanskrit). Most of them are either working-class guys, businessmen, or women, acting under pretence. However, as mentioned in the chapter distinguishing enlightenment from liberation and awakening (Chapter 17), a genuinely-enlightened spiritual preceptor is VERY rare indeed. Even some of the teachings of universally-recognized Avatars (incarnations of the Godhead/Brahman) were far from accurate, what to speak of the teachings of lesser authorities! This lack of authentic spiritual guidance is the major reason for the decadent state of present-day society (and previous decadent societies), apart, perhaps, from the paucity of legitimate government leadership (see Chapter 22 regarding illegitimate governance).

      It is crucial to note that a priest is not required to teach just anyone and everyone in his community. Traditionally, priests (at least those who are worthy of the title) were commissioned to teach two groups of MALES: the rulers of society (see the following chapter regarding the monarchy), and monastics (normally boys and adolescents) in his school (“gurukula”, in Sanskrit). Furthermore, it is imperative that priests assess the qualifications of each prospective disciple, such as the man’s level of intelligence, sincerity, and humility, to ascertain his suitability as a student. As Lord Jesus so rightly suggested, one should desist giving what is holy to dogs (i.e. those who are hostile to righteous precepts).

      A PERFECT analogy of why a priest should teach only the two aforementioned groups of males is with any world-class musician. Arguably the greatest pianist in history was Franz Liszt Ferenc, an Hungarian virtuoso who lived in the nineteenth century. Not only did he tutor other concert pianists, but, just like priests, he did so at no monetary charge whatsoever. If he had taught novice musicians, he would have misused his valuable time, because his advanced students could have easily have taught beginners (or at least taught the teachers of those novices).

      Contrary to popular understanding, the clergy not only teach religious studies, but all things necessary for living a healthy and happy life, such as languages, history, basic mathematics, hygiene, diet and food preparation. If a particular student shows himself to NOT be inclined towards the life of a monastic, the guru will send him to another master, in order to be apprenticed in a different occupation, such as the military, business, engineering, medicine, accounting, labouring, etcetera, etcetera. The modern system of schooling, in which every child is taught the same curriculum (and, invariably, indoctrinated into being a servile minion of the state) has been the source of much misery for society.

      As explained elsewhere in this “Final Instruction Sheet for Humanity”, the priest’s disciples instruct, in turn, their OWN subordinates, including their wives and children. It is not practical, or even possible, for a clergyman to effectively teach every single individual in his community on a personal level. Fortunately, there is a system in place where all citizens may benefit of the teaching of a true priest (see Chapters 19 and 27).

      On occasion, “God” (or to be more precise, The Impersonal Self, acting via the preordained narrative of this universe) gives specific messages via chosen individuals, whether they be priests or not. However, such messages are usually intended to be spoken to an individual, or group of individuals, with specific (and invariably, temporal) repercussions for those individuals in question. This is akin to the ancient lineage of prophetic figures found in monotheistic traditions. Such “prophets” can NEVER replace a man who has evolved (over millions of lifetimes?) to be a fully-enlightened saintly prophet, appointed to teach “truth” to humanity. Unfortunately, such World Teachers incarnate very rarely on earth, and when they do appear, are often assassinated by the illegitimate rulers of their nations, or by other demonic elements of society. Even the most vile political leaders have a certain proportion of the populace which adores them. However, virtually everyone despises the gentle, humble, holy men who dare speak the truth about the state of contemporary society, and point-out the multitude of sins extant.

      The most HEINOUS action possible is to persecute a Prophet or World Teacher (“jagadguru”, in Sanskrit). Thus, exterminating thousands of workers is less sinful than murdering a World Teacher, because when a Prophet’s mission is ended, or merely hampered by persecution, the whole of society suffers from lack of knowledge and direction. Only a wise person can find the logic in such a seemingly-audacious statement.

      When the life of a World Teacher is constantly threatened, or he is assassinated (as in the case of so many great Prophets of the past, such as Lord Jesus Christ), society is likened to a chicken which runs directionless around the coop, just after its head has been severed. Unfortunately, the more we progress into this current dark epoch (“Kali Yuga”, in Sanskrit), the more society’s head (priests/prophets) are being persecuted, and soon there will be hardly any ACTUAL spiritual guides remaining on the planet. At that point in time, the end of humanity is assured.

      So, to put it succinctly, there may be hundreds of thousands of “priests” on earth at a given time, yet there are only an EXTREMELY small number of true sages, who understand life definitively, and are both willing and able to lead others to self-realization (“adhyātma-vidyā”, “ātma-jñana”, or “brahma-jñana”, in Sanskrit). As a general rule, the greater number of disciples following a particular teacher, the more perverse and corrupt are his teachings, because the truth is very difficult to accept. Unfortunately, the typical person wants to hear predominately sentimental tenets, which gives him or her merely emotional solace. The current World Teacher has never had a true disciple, sad to say.

      Cont…

    • Many spiritual seekers, especially in the more esoteric paths, mistakenly believe that they have need of a guru ONLY until they’ve reached a certain level of enlightenment, or even that they have no need of a spiritual master at all. The main reason why every serious (male) religious practitioner (“yogi”, in Sanskrit) requires a teacher, is not so much to learn concepts, dogmas and rituals from his guru. The primary reason one needs a spiritual master, is so that he has a superior to serve, lest he devotes his life to self-serving pursuits. When a man is bereft of regular guidance from a master, he is most likely to stray from the path of righteousness (“dharma”, in Sanskrit). That explains why even Divine Incarnations (“Avatāra”, in Sanskrit) acknowledge their own masters with great reverence, and rarely, if ever, contradict or disobey them.

      It is perfectly permissible for a man to abandon his spiritual master in favour of a NEW guru, for any reason he chooses, but preferably because he has outgrown the dogmas and/or rituals taught by his former teacher. No genuine spiritual master will feel resentment towards another person for any reason whatsoever, including towards a former disciple who has forsaken him for a new priest.

      A clergyman subsists ENTIRELY Providentially, that is, he must depend solely on contributions from his followers/congregation/disciples, unless, of course, he is able to support himself independently by growing his own food and making his own clothing, both of which may consume an inordinate amount of time. Unfortunately, however, this arrangement holds the distinct possibility of corrupting the teachings of the priest, since he may be reluctant to proclaim the bitter truth to his congregation, out of fear of them withholding their financial support from him.
      Ideally, priests (that is, genuine spiritual teachers) ought to devote every available moment of their precious time to ministering to their communities. There is no such thing as a part-time priest, or even more ridiculously, working-class men who call themselves “priests” simply because one of their ancestors may have been a priest – something of a common occurrence in Bhārata (India).

      “The BEST thing a person can do is be in the presence of a spiritual master.
      The WORST thing one can do is consider the master to be an ordinary person”.
      Franklin Jones (AKA Avatar Adi Da Samraj),
      American Spiritual Master.

      “There is no God and I am His Prophet.”
      *************
      “Gurus are very clever at putting you down, but they’re just trying to see how strong you are.
      They’re testing you out to see if they can hoodwink you.
      So long as they can, they’re going to go on doing it till they get you to the point where they can’t do it to you anymore.
      Then you’ll graduate.”
      Professor Alan W. Watts,
      British-American Philosopher.

    • Is Mr. Gura a spiritual teacher or a spiritual MASTER? 🤔

      If you are uncertain of the distinction between the two, I shall be MORE than happy to enlighten you. 😇

  2. Leo, what about releasing some child-friendly episodes in the future?
    I am sure there are a lot of parents out there who would like to introduce their children to spirituality from an early age.

    • @Cornelius nevertheless, it might be valuable to invest time into catering to a different age group.

    • That’s actually a great idea. But he spends a lot of time making these videos so he’ll have to split his time, or work more.
      I’ve made 30 videos on another channel, & making quality videos takes more effort than I thought.
      Or he can hire someone to help him put some out on a semi-regular basis,
      Hopefully he does come out with child focused videos, it’d be incredibly important & useful

      Same (love) is dual to different (bias).

      Form is dual to formlessness.
      Potential energy is dual to kinetic energy, gravitational energy is dual.
      Energy is duality, duality is energy.
      When you understand duality you can create the 4th law of thermodynamics.
      Anything which is dual to entropy is by definition the 4th law.

      A is dual to not A — the law of the excluded middle — Aristotle.
      Syntropy (Prediction) is dual to increasing entropy — the 4th law of thermodynamics!
      Making predictions to track targets is a syntropic process — teleology.
      Convergence (syntropy, convex) is dual to divergence (entropy, concave).
      Teleological physics (syntropy) is dual to non-teleological physics (entropy).

      “Always two there are” — Yoda.
      Force is dual — attraction is dual to repulsion, push is dual to pull.
      “The Force” = duality.
      “May the force (duality, energy) be with you” — Jedi saying.

    • oh i like that one.haven’t heard that before.
      we have to traverse the ego to escape it.

  4. Sidenote; you should expand on your “Life Is A Dream” episode. I’m most happy when I’m sensing reality like it’s a lucid dream and collapsing that duality. I’ve seen every one of your episodes and I believe that was the most important one for me.

    • People who suffer with severe anxiety disorder, realize dreamy nature of life, when depersonalization and derealization episodes kick in.

    • agreed.you only have to compare the dream state to the waking state to see this is true.

    • That is your bias then 😂 (I don’t mean any offense). But ask why is that the most important video for you? And explore that

  5. I cackle uncontrollably almost every time Leo drops some truth then says “TaDaaaaa” XD Great cosmic joke lol

  6. I love how all episodes are coming together in this incredible big picture understanding of Reality.
    Namasté 🕉️🙏🏽♥️

  7. 🤣🤣🤣🤣ugh I have to rewind back, ‘rock-tits’. I was laughing so hard I had tears coming out my eyes I missed 10 minutes of the video. Thanks I haven’t laughed like that in a year and a half 🤣🤣🤣. Universal absurdity of placing so much meaning on things we forget to laugh .

  8. Will be getting that life purpose course..thank you for everything that you do Leo. I’m the biggest procrastinator. 🤫✌️😉

  9. “Nothing is either good or bad, but thinking makes it so”. – Shakespeare

  10. Kind of makes sense of Chapter 1 of the Tao Te Ching:

    “Ever desireless, one can see the mystery. Ever desiring, one can see the manifestations.”

  11. Leo clearly has a bias towards sushi😂👌 nah. This was a great topic thank you for expanding our minds.
