The Virtue of Youth: Brahmacharya, and The “Jeff Goldblum” Method

The deeper I go into Monk Mode, the more I lose the fear I mentioned having in Finding The Wall.

I was afraid when I first started Monk Mode.

I was afraid that I would find toiling away in solitude more preferable to socializing in mainstream society, and that I would find some knowledge, whether about myself or about the world, that would never allow me to return to normal everyday relationships with friends, family, and lovers.

Notice how my specific fear was knowledge, because once you know, it’s very difficult to continue living life under the same veil of ignorance; you have a responsibility to change. I have already experienced many red pills: government and politics, news media, female nature, heck even the keto diet.

I didn’t want to lose anymore by taking yet another red pill by observing the behavior of monks and considering prolonged abstinence or celibacy.

“Because you could not find joy, you settled for pleasure. Pleasure is not joy. It’s beautiful, but limited.” – Sadhguru

In this video, Sadhguru explains Brahmacharya, the “Bachelor Student” stage for spiritual practitioners, which is largely associated with its practice of celibacy. It’s a very profound explanation, but what I will take away for this message is the delineation between pleasure and joy. Essentially, pleasure seeking is always the procurement of external stimulus, whereas joy is something achieved from within.

He sums up the celibacy practice as a tool for reaching this inner peace, and it is not needed as a life long vow. The goal is only to become joyful by your own nature, as those who do not walk the path may find themselves attempting to extract joy from others, and relying on them for pleasure.

And it is precisely this reliance on the external that actually bonds you, Sadhguru explains. Naturally, we humans want to escape bondage, and have no problem breaking our unpleasant limitations, but unfortunately we celebrate our pleasant ones, making them much harder to break.

Consider how marriage is performed and celebrated, with each partner binding the other with a ring, with death being the only thing to sever the bond.

Another instance is the motto of the Blue Pill man in regards to women: “can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” Clearly, if you respect the path of the monks, you would know this to be untrue. If you no longer want to suffer, there is a joyful path to freeing yourself from your limitations.

I must reiterate that the Bachelor student phase is actually the first of four of the age-based stages called Ashramas. The next three are householder, forest dweller/retiree and renunciation, however, any of the first three can be started at any time interchangeably, or skipped altogether to get to Sannyasa (renunciation).

I need to say this to demonstrate once again that you can graduate from Brahmacharya and become a householder (family man) if that’s what you choose to do. If we substitute the word limitation we used earlier for attachment, then we would be more familiar in Buddhist territory, in which one of the Four Noble Truths explains that not only our cravings are a source of suffering, but also our aversions.

“The other problem pointed out by Buddha here, which is very pertinent, is that denying desire (or depriving oneself) is like denying life itself. A person, he said, has to rise above attachments and for that, he need not deprive himself. The problem arises when he does not know where to put an end to his desires. And when he yields into his desires, he becomes a slave to them.” – Zenlightenment

Rejecting sexuality does not have to be the goal, only non-attachment and discipline towards it. Spiritual science is incredibly thorough, and there are balanced and holy ways of conducting your carnal expressions.

The Jeff Goldblum Method

So, how does the goofy and glorious Jeff Goldblum fit into all this?

Well, if you haven’t noticed, this article is targeted towards the MGTOW or Red Pill men who still want a family one day. However, those of us who are still very much intent on childless bachelorhood can still use this advice to ward off family members prodding us back onto the plantation.

At 62 years old, Jeff Goldblum conceived his first child with his wife, whom is thirty years his junior, and was blessed (yes, blessed, he’s pretty old!)with another child two years later. Goldblum was married two times prior to his current wife, but what’s special about it is that there was a whopping 24 years of single life in between his second divorce and his current marriage.

We already know that men hit their peak in the sexual marketplace around age 35-40, and it’s advised to keep spinning plates with women and don’t consider settling down until you get there. My method is to push the settling down age even further, because of Jeff Goldblum and my next idea about The Virtue of Youth.

The Virtue of Youth

Even if you disagree with the sexual marketplace, there is an indisputable biological clock for women that ticks down way faster than it does for men, in terms of sexual reproduction. So, if men can produce healthy children well into their 50’s and 60’s, then there truly shouldn’t be any rush to settle down.

I call it “The Virtue of Youth” because there is an obvious physical difference between the young and the elderly, and I have been contemplating what our youthful strength is meant for. The contemporary strategy is to exhaust your youth on working and saving so that you will have an income in your later years during retirement. If that is a man’s objective, then he is severely hamstringing himself by incorporating the costs of marriage and children before his retirement age. He simply won’t be able to contribute as much to his early investments and receive the most compound interest over the years.

Imagine having 25+ years of work into your career, with no wife and child. You could easily rise up the ranks and have time to pursue your other passions and interests as well. Without a doubt you would be rich and likely famous if you wanted to.

If you then decide to become a householder, you could afford to buy a house in cash, and support a stay-at-home wife and the subsequent children, and continue to supplement your income with a side-business that you have been nurturing over the years. This way, you’ll be able to actually enjoy your marriage and family a lot more than the average husband who is away for most of the day at work trying to keep the lights on.

Getting Your Youth Back

When I first mentioned this method to my family, their first response was unanimously in horror due to the fact that the women at that age wouldn’t be able to produce children. And then they were unanimously in silence when I respond that I just simply need to find a younger woman. The Blue Pill is such a constrained view of the world.

I personally think older people enjoy hanging out with youthful people to an extent. After your youth runs out following this method, it’s only fair and sensible that you also inject more youth into your life by having a younger wife and being surrounded by your children.

The only downsides to this method is that you are pushing the start of your family quite late, and there may be a chance you kick the bucket before you see your grand kids, especially if your sons come out as smart as you are. But hey, you can’t have it all. If you do pass early though, there’s a ton in the will to make sure your family is taken care of.

I personally think following this method will encourage you to stay healthy over the years, as you need to be in optimal health to produce children at later ages and you also want to make sure you stick around to see them grow. The average man is probably beaten down from balancing his work and family over the years and probably resigns in his later years in regards to his health.

But you truly get the best of both worlds with this method. Men who marry early have an uphill battle. If you follow the Jeff Goldblum method, you’re coasting through it all.

MGTOW

Will I adopt this method myself? I don’t think so.

Too many of our greatest thinkers, inventors, and artists were all celibate, and I can’t help but conclude this is the key to their success. The one married man I do admire the most is Marcus Aurelius, but he made the mistake of promoting his son Commodus to emperor, and his son’s subsequent assassination kicked off the Year of the Five Emperors, a period of civil war within Rome. Aurelius, ironically enough, was the last of the “Five Good Emperors” of Rome, a successful dynasty of emperors whom were all adopted.

I believe a man must choose to marry either a woman or the world. If I settled down with a family, then only a small group of people would gain my full attention and resources. But if I marry the world, everyone in it becomes my child. The world and all it’s secrets garners my full potential, in the same way Isaac Newton and Nikola Tesla’s scientific and technological advancements moved the world forward.

The advantage of having a family is that your wealth gets passed on to the people you cared about and invested in to continue your legacy. It would be a shame if all the wealth us MGTOW men are able to accumulate just gets absorbed by the bank after we die.

My plan is to make MGTOW my family. I’m young and broke right now, so it’s just a pipe dream, but if I turn out to have exceptional talent and success, I look forward to starting a fraternity or non-profit organization of sorts of MGTOW men, and when I pass, the money will go to the organization, and not squandered away by any of my blue pill family members.

It’s just too Blue Pill for me to consider genes being the only form of legacy. With every new generation, your contribution to the genetic code gets smaller and smaller over time anyway. And what about your consciousness? Your ideas? Your philosophy? Jesus had no children and became the biggest religion on the planet.

If you care at all about spirituality, you have to believe you are more than just your body. I refuse to rely on my genes and this material world. What if reality was actually an illusion? Then that would mean that we all actually exist as ideas, impressions, and concepts. Therefore, I’d much rather pass down my ideas.

And I don’t even care about leaving a legacy much honestly. Aurelius reminds us in his book Meditations that the people who remember you will also die one day, so there’s no point. Yes, I think even Jesus and Buddha will be forgotten in the grand scheme of human civilization.

Ah! But that’s too much nihilism for you! You’re not ready for that. I’ll stop here.

Whatever you choose to do, I hope it’s done virtuously and consciously, and in your own way.

Play On The Hardest Difficulty – MGTOW, No Fap and Semen Retention

A tactic I use to get the most fun out of video games these days is to simply play the game on its hardest difficulty.

It’s the fastest way to getting good at the game, and only requires one play through, as opposed to going through the normal difficulty first just to learn the ropes.

This also reflects the two ways that men become MGTOW. Many played the game on Easy Mode and followed the Blue Pill strategy guide only to get a “Game Over” screen after a divorce or some other betrayal by their former lover. Now they have to start a New Game, but potentially with over half of their finances cut, along with children to support (and you know how much we hate escort missions!). Is that the type of game you want to play?

The other way to join MGTOW is to instead front load all the difficulty at the beginning by crushing all of the hopes and dreams you initially had for your future through reasoning that the safest and most optimal outcome for your life requires you to alter or avoid relationships with women and the prospects of parenthood.

But no matter the method for getting through the Red Pill to MGTOW, somewhere along the way, it’s going to hurt.

“The sole and supreme use of suffering is to purify, to burn out all that is useless and impure. Suffering ceases for him who is pure.” – James Allen, As A Man Thinketh

Life on Hard Mode

Ronin Man, one of my favorite MGTOWs, recently published a video critiquing the practice of No-Fap, and he asked a very hard hitting question on whether guys on no fap or other retaining practices appear “peaceful.” I responded:

“It’s not about peace. It’s about self-knowledge, self-sufficiency, and self-mastery.”

It’s such a great question because the context is absolutely true. I will admit to you that I am not at all peaceful. But then again, has any of the work since taking the Red Pill been peaceful? It is an incredibly difficult task to tear down your former beliefs and personality to rebuild yourself entirely from a new core.

The goal was never peace. It’s why we took the Red Pill to begin with. We didn’t want the blissfully ignorant dream that ends in waking to a nightmare. No, we wanted the cold hard truth.

The Game That I’m Playing

One of my core hypotheses is that we function as Organic Intelligence Programs, referring to the plasticity of our brains and personalities, suggesting that with enough tinkering, we can be reprogrammed.

Of course, the body itself has its own vast intelligence. It’s our HP bar with natural strength, agility, constitution, etc. But for the majority of humans, the body has been running the entire game.

For instance, let’s take its desire for genetic reproduction, and the institutions of love, marriage, family, and even religion, that our intelligence programs have created to protect that imperative. You take the Red Pill when you deprogram yourself from this basic operating system.

Since a few months ago, I have been asking myself “Is There More To Life Than Just Food and Sex?”, and so the exact parameters of this game that I’m playing has been to closely control and/or monitor my behavior with my No Fap/Semen Retention practice as well as my Keto/Fasting Diet.

It’s not like I was ever an over consumer on any of the things I’m currently fasting from either. I just need to satisfy this incessant curiosity to know if there truly is something greater on the other side.

We play games to be challenged, and I’ve organized my life so far to do exactly this. I honestly would not recommend someone focusing on taming both their food and sex drives at once like I am, but like I said, the hardest difficulty encourages the most growth at the fastest rate.

Changing Class Systems

Changing my Character class is another fun thing to do to extend the play time of a game for a second run, where I would create a new character with a completely different play style. For example, the first play could have been a very vanilla, goody-two-shoes soldier archetype, but I might choose a stealthy, squirmy ranger/scoundrel for the second play through.

TFM also had a great rant on No Fap recently as well, specifically highlighting his frustration with the practice and the common occurrence of wet dreams at the end of each month. This is by far the most common wall No Fap practitioners hit during their practice.

Ironically, it disproves one of Ronin Man’s points against No Fap, that the practice is “shutting down the pipes”, which is clearly untrue if they force themselves open every now and then.

But going back to hitting the wall of wet dreams (yikes), it truly is the point in which all pivots are made on No Fap. First off, there is disagreement on whether experiencing one counts against your streak or not. This is where men decide to either continue their training at the school of Semen Retention, or to remain as just a strictly Non-PMO organization (No Porn Masturbation Orgasm).

The decision is usually guided by whether or not the practitioner is more invested in either the biological or psychological effects on No Fap. I was personally more uncomfortable with wet dreams and wanted to figure out how to stop them, and that’s what made me pursue semen retention.

However, other men suffer from a psychological drain from watching porn, and are more interested in developing healthier sex habits. The stages of which these men will set up camp outside the wall ranges from something like masturbating for a maximum of once per week only using their imagination, to no masturbation at all with release only allowed with a partner.

“Continue? Insert Coin.”

TFM couldn’t get over the wall, and so he found Celestina, his sex doll waifu, and is currently living happily ever after until her next upgrade.

But I’m not without my faults. I’ve written about my recent PMO relapse (Losing My Compass – Relapse, Desire, and Dissatisfaction on No Fap), and have also begun questioning if long-term practice is right for me.

Since then I decided to play on a harder difficulty, and this time completely cut out indulging in any pornographic or sexually stimulating content as well. Yeah, that even includes avoiding a lot of racy click-bait as well. However, I only made it to 28 days on that avenue, and contemplated on admitting I got a “Game Over” once again.

But the game wasn’t over. Not even close.

This whole time, running in the background, my semen retention streak counter has reached 45 days! I made it over the wall!

It was like I was trying to fill up my special move bar and got upset that I missed the opportunity for a flashy finish. I wanted to reset the entire game just because I ranked up an ability in a skill tree path that’s a bit outside of my class archetype.

Role Playing

Role Playing is another tool I use to spice things up if I’m no longer interested in a standard play through.

In Monster Hunter, I made a female character who is only allowed to use light weapons. In Fallout 4, I didn’t pick up any loot when I first started until it made narrative sense to start collecting junk and eating meat from the irradiated animals.

I was doing the same with No-Fap. I can’t say my 12 years of watching porn hasn’t altered my sexual interests. Unfortunately, my belief in the brain’s plasticity has backfired on me. I believe I’ve been reprogrammed towards a certain sexual interest and want to see if there’s a possibility to return to original factory settings.

Man, that’s one hell of a side quest. And this is exactly why I say I give out “Red Pills that are out of this world.” I’m willing to believe and experiment on very esoteric practices.

I shouldn’t be watching porn anyway, because it could end up interfering with my progress on semen retention. But I just want to clarify how I’m tweaking my difficulty settings on No Fap.

I’m running two simultaneous counters: one for semen retention, and another for No-PMO, where an infraction on any of the letters in the acronym results in a reset for that counter.

Min Maxing

Min Maxing is a character building strategy used in RPG games in which a player sacrifices (minimizes) growth in certain stat blocks in order to emphasize (maximizing) their strengths to produce overwhelming effects compared to more balanced characters.

In my opinion, this is MGTOW. We’ve ceased putting points into the marriage/dating/society skill trees, and are completely invested into other areas of personal development.

Sometimes, the game can feel like it’s really hard, but that’s because we still don’t understand how to play with this new class archetype. Some men want to dual class with having a girlfriend without marrying, or go purple pill. Others go full monk, or sub-class with pump and dump, etc.

When we experience hardships during our transformation into the MGTOW lifestyle, we must consider what our characters will look like at max level. The Blue Piller chose the easy path with the standard ending, only if he can somehow avoid the final boss (divorce rape). But going MGTOW is like getting the DLC expansion pack; new maps, skills, and alternate endings.

But those first few levels on MGTOW mode are brutal. Absolutely brutal. For a while it felt like you were just spinning your wheels, replaying the same level over and over again (red pill rage) while the Blue Pill men were leveling up.

But the true sweetness that is earned from a play through on these sorts of games on the highest difficulty is not just the satisfaction in taking the road less traveled, but taking the challenging task so difficult that it forces you to improve to levels beyond what was previously foreseeable.

Effectively, the game itself begins to disappear, because victory for any man who goes his own way is ultimate and imminent. You begin to realize the true battle was always between you and your former self, and any of your perceived limitations.

This is what playing on Hard Mode is, and this is what it takes to become a Champion.

MGTOW Is Not The Means, But The End (Immortal Mindz Response)

The following article is a series of responses to a comment chain found from this video:

Of all the MGTOW videos in my favorites playlist, I feature Immortal Mindz (AKA Soul Immortal) the most.

The man is a wizard of the mind, a monk mode expert, and esoteric philosopher. I think very few other MGTOW will be able to comprehend or convey the significance of walking the solitary path. Soul once compared it to Santiago leaving Fatima in The Alchemist.

But to Soul, Monk Mode is only a temporary journey. While I don’t believe he will ever re-marry, he has created a potential blind spot for future dating with his 95/5 categorization of women.

This “virtuous woman” (aka NAWALT) occupies 5% of the total female population. However, he has stated that in modern times, the actual population the average man has access to is at or below 1% , as the other women in the 5% category currently belong to mostly isolated communities like the Amish, African Tribes, the Nunnery, etc.

Since the beginning, Soul has always been a believer in “raising one’s vibration” and Positive Thinking, and he claims that as soon as he spoke his 95/5 theory into existence, he suddenly began to see more of these favorable women appear in his life.

Now here’s the danger. Soul could very well be a Monk for the rest of his life, so he can simply observe and spout these theories without any harm to himself, and even if he leaves Monk Mode, he still has a wealth of experience to draw from, but his followers might not share the same level of sophistication. Men very early in their stages of rebuilding during the MGTOW Red Pill may cling towards any rationalization they can to keep women on a pedestal and never go down the lone road of the Monk.

Last year he made a new YouTube channel, and since then, more women and purple pill men have been occupying the comments section. I salute the man, but Iron Sharpeneth Iron, as he said, and so I must deem that his space is no longer a MGTOW refuge.

The Comment Chain

Charl was among other MGTOW men still stuck in the red-pill rage phase, and cases like him are why I decided to make MGTOW content, because there is a great lack of Monk Mode content available for those men to envision a productive path forward.

General MGTOW does do incredibly well with enlightening men on the pitfalls of dating and relationships, but it’s Monk Mode MGTOW that illuminates the path of self-actualization that comes after that.

If Charl had followed people within my circle, he would have learned that after taking the Red Pill, the best thing to look forward to is yourself, your own freedom, and the new possibilities for growth within your character.

Stranahan was correct to say that Charl is in the beginning stage of Red Pill, specifically the bargaining phase of the grief cycle, and needs to work on self-love because even though he has a desire for self-improvement, his focus is still outward on finding this 5% NAWALT.

The method he is employing to find her is also questionable, and it’s the exact sort of Positive Thinking tactics I said Immortal Mindz’ followers would find themselves in trouble with.

Soul did develop the 95/5 concept from the observations of healthier relationships from older men and women and combining it with his own experience, but Soul himself is of an older generation.

For the younger guys, this <1% NAWALT population is shrinking by the day.

Listen, I’ve read As A Man Thinketh. I absolutely love the quote “Man does not attract that which he wants, he attracts that which he is.” However, I don’t think it applies when you are trying to attract people, because people have much more personal agency than to be treated like objects in this way, and besides that, there is no guarantee that when you raise your vibration you won’t end up attracting the wrong type of people in your direction that may want to steal energy from you instead of building on it.

Soul has always said that women are never meant to be pursued, only attracted. But if a man enters cocoon mode for the sole intent of later attracting a worthy mate, I will go as far to say that his pursuit of women has never ended; It remained as a spiritual longing even though it temporarily ceased in the physical.

Even when told of the possibilities of a fulfilling life outside of relationships, Charl’s response still revolves around women. His future depends on the quality of women available, and not solely on the quality of man he wants to become. This is the key difference between all the shades of blue and red pill, and the man that has decided to go monk.

This is why I say MGTOW is above Red Pill.

Red Pill is simply the knowledge of female nature, but MGTOW is about your own nature, possibly extending to all of nature, and the road to mastering it.


You don’t have to be celibate to be considered MGTOW. We’re not in the business of denying men of their comforts and privileges; we’re about maximizing personal freedom. Some of us men have realized that relationships with women could be a compromise to that freedom. It has absolutely nothing to do with having the strength or weakness to engage with women.

There is absolutely nothing pathetic about a formerly married man admitting that after his divorce and finding MGTOW, he has had his fill with women and now wants to move on to living a solitary life. I can’t even begin to describe how distorted your views must be look down on a man like this. Even if you meant for this label to only be extended to never-married men, it’s still wrong to associate a man’s self worth to his relations with women.

It was at this point that I decided to contribute to the discussion, and specifically call out the 95/5 as yet another fancy packaging for the NAWALT blue pill.

The reasons I wanted him to reply specifically after he moved in with his unicorn were because:

  1. That’s what I expect a Blue Pill man to do.
  2. I suspected he hasn’t found his 5% yet; it was food for thought.

Men and women are fundamentally different, and that’s why I implied there will be some level of maintenance, which can also extend to compromise. It’s called a sexual marketplace for a reason, for the fact that it denotes the interactions of men and women are always involving some form of exchange.

It’s just economics. No amount of positive thinking is going to change the fact that we live in a world of limited resources. Your time, freedom, and youth, are all limited resources. Everything has an opportunity cost.

I will close with wise words from Immortal Mindz:

Many of these men who are letting go of MGTOW will unfortunately be returning to just another shade of Blue Pill. You must go deeper, separate much further, to realize true elevation and clarity awarded only to the lucky few that choose to purse the path of a MGTOW Monk.

See you on the motherfuckin’ Far Side… and I’m out.

Article: IS THERE MORE TO LIFE? (THAN JUST FOOD AND SEX) – A great primer to consider the reasons for MGTOW Monk Mode.

Also now in video format:

Losing My Compass – Relapse, Desire and Dissatisfaction on No Fap

My No-Fap High Scores List

1st – 163 Days

2nd – 129 Days

3rd – 101 (latest)

The first draft of this story was difficult to write. After a relapse, I had no real sense or conclusion on the matter.

Moments after the relapse happened, I remember saying to myself “I don’t even know who you are anymore.”, which is a very profound statement considering I started this practice in the pursuit of self-knowledge.

“I think there is very little to be learned about yourself in the pursuit of sex. After all it is just a sensual pleasure.” – 30 Days of No-Fap: Road to Self -Mastery

I suppose it would be more meaningful now to flip this statement: What am I learning in the pursuit of non-sex?

Sex Is Always Going To Be There

An old strategy of mine was to deliberately feed into my urges with the intent that I could increase the intensity of my motivation for other habits if I also increased my sexual urges and then focused that energy to those other habits. A specific and frequent example for this was watching porn before working out.

This is quite the crude form of sex transmutation. It would work some of the time, but generally the risks aren’t worth it, and in the end it took more time to complete the desired action anyway because of the distracting sexual build up that had to be done beforehand.

The Power of Sex

I don’t want to remove my sex drive. According to Freud’s theory of sublimation, my sexual dissatisfaction could be the source for my strong drive for achievement as a means for compensation.

“My argument is not to abandon sex forever, but to simply curb it, to fast from it, only to recognize it has no true dominion over you.”Road to Self-Mastery

The context behind that statement was derived from observing the habits of sex-controlled men, with most of their paths leading to danger; #MeToo, financial divorce rape, and even physical harm for the single men frequenting red light districts.

Well, considering all that, masturbation and sex dolls actually seem like pretty great options.

But here’s my problem: I’ve taken the Red Pill.

I’ve learned about the health benefits of semen retention and Non-ejaculatory methods for sex, and I simply can not settle for these cheaper forms of pleasure anymore. I can not go back to the way I was before.

Losing My Compass

Yes, I know; real big talk from someone who relapsed anyway.

But 129 days is still nothing to scoff at. There are men out there that fap several times a day for years on end.

But what can easily happen with longer streaks like mine is a drop in standards and a loss for the fundamentals responsible for success in the first place.

I can tell you now, in the days leading up to my relapse, I had completely forgotten about Karezza. An act like that takes time, practice, and a committed partner; three things I don’t have the mental framework for in my current monk-mode environment.

And so, my reasons for doing No-Fap slowly got further and further away.

Reorientation

“A Saiyan gets stronger after every battle.” – Prince Vegeta

This relapse doesn’t have to be taken as a loss; none of them should be, ever. Do the logical thing: detach from the shame and disappointment and learn from the experience.

#1 Don’t Feed The Beast

As stated earlier, my sex drive is already powerful enough on it’s own; it doesn’t need any extra help. Engaging with it will only allow it to overcome my current focus, and I can’t afford that sort of distraction.

(Like Saruman told the Orcs in The Fellowship of The Ring: “We have work to do!”)

#2 Delayed Gratification

This has always been an issue since the start. Sex is too powerful, and is very difficult to delay through other means to only later intend to satisfy its end.

Obviously I want to have a moderate and responsible sex life, but I also don’t want to be in-between. If I’m going to do it, just go and do it. No more edging and teasing.

Every single part of my life deserves 100% of my attention and effort when it’s the right time for me to focus on it. So if I’ve decided I’m not going to have sex right now, then it’s not worth thinking about at all for the moment.

#3 Tracking Progress

As all this drama is going on with No-Fap, meanwhile, I’ve just made nine months of my Keto/Candida diet. The awesome thing about Health & Fitness is that the gains are very observable, and while the Candida isn’t completely gone yet, I’ve at least reached my weight loss goals and other health benefits.

As someone who was already actively decreasing my masturbation frequency before I even knew about No-Fap, these “superpowers” more chronic abusers experience after they begin this practice aren’t so apparent to me.

And even if I go even further with strict Semen Retention, Debonair D recommends a six-month minimum for complete realization. That’s a really long time for a very esoteric practice with no guarantees for what could be a possible placebo effect. And so, this leads me to my last point, wrapping it all up.

#4 An Everyday Perspective

Honestly, counting my streaks, and especially wanting to reach a certain month/day milestone is making a mountain out of this ordeal. It gets even worse when you have hit high streaks before, because the low-number days you need to build up again don’t have the same impact.

This entire recent streak, I was just looking forward to beating my high score, and everyday not having it wasn’t necessarily making me more likely to achieve it, as it also made me more frustrated that I’m not where I want to be.

Too much projecting into the future made me forget what No-Fap’s purpose is supposed to be for me as an everyday experience.

I want self-mastery. I never want to be in a situation where I am compelled by some external necessity, and I’ve identified sex to be in that category at the moment.

If I just metaphorically wave to my sex drive from across the street, letting it pass me by, I can save myself so much time and money to focus on more productive and beneficial life practices. I know about my sex drive already, but I don’t really know enough about my creative drives, my relationship with food, my full opinion on money, leisure, and luxury.

Once again, sex isn’t something that has to be abandoned forever. I don’t have to be a celibate monk, and even so there are responsible and spiritual ways to incorporate it into my life, like with Karezza, for example.

But what’s clear as day to me right now is that I made some interesting choices with my life prior to MGTOW, and I think the most responsible thing to do right now is to hard freeze on everything unnecessary (deep Monk Mode) and focus on clearing up the debts and damage from the past, and forge new roads and foundations for a more successful future.

I shouldn’t be afraid of this either; I really can’t tell if my Monk Mode will last forever and I become the next Nikola Tesla (I’ve voiced this concern in FINDING THE WALL: PLATEAUED PRODUCTIVITY AND LEAVING MONK MODE).

As a separate analogy, imagine you are advised not to move during meditation. But what if a particular discomfort makes it extremely difficult to quiet the mind as the entirety of your mind becomes focused on ignoring that one uncomfortable feeling?

129/101 days is freaking good, but if No-Fap starts to become a chore in itself and ends up having the reverse effect of distracting me from my main objectives, I have to consider the possibility that I won’t become a No-Fap Guru, and I’m simply just a jack-of-all-trades, and call it quits when the urges do get that strong.

I’m a highly creative individual, and I know from my past experiences that indulging in PMO starts out tame at first, but overtime it will certainly escalate.

But if I could start doing No-Fap Hardmode properly this time, and reset my baseline enough so that I can actually derive some satisfaction from PMO every four months or so, that actually seems like a pretty good deal!

So, I suppose the next challenge and interesting question is: How strong is my sex drive? Will ignoring it on No-Fap actually end up backfiring?

We’ll see. More content on the way.

How I Went MGTOW in High School Because of #MeToo

Technically, this happened sometime around 2008, so it was before #MeToo was a part of the common tongue, but the principle still applies.

This should be around the start of 10th Grade, so timeline wise, we’re after the Only Dating For Status story.

Maybe the Full Moon was out early that day, but a few of the boys in my class were particularly rabid for sexual contact, and the girls they were entertaining were receptive to it, as best as they could be without giving themselves away.

This happened over ten years ago, so I’m not sure if the girls instigated or reciprocated at all, but what happens next is why my memory is skewed against the boys.

My teacher (female) decided to report the boys for sexual harassment.

I will agree that the behavior was certainly disruptive, but the reporting was controversial because the girls did not consent to have it sent on their behalf, and because of this, I don’t believe the boys were left with any serious consequences.

Nevertheless, even though I was only an observer to this party, the whole ordeal affected my behavior moving forward.

I was already a reserved and introverted kid anyway, but now I felt compelled to actively suppress my sexuality, knowing that I could be reported by a third party for showing too much overt sexual interest at any time, even if the girl receiving this attention wasn’t opposed to it.

I won’t say this was the exact reason I went “MGTOW” though, because later that year I joined an academic program that completely ate up all my time, and that naturally led me to Monk Mode-ing through high school.

The fruits of my efforts were apparent during my senior year, when all my Monk Mode efforts awarded me Valedictorian. But in return, my MGTOW movements trying to avoid getting #MeToo’d hurt my social status.

It was actually an administrator (also female) that suspected I was gay because all of my other friends spent a lot of time messing around with the girls while I avoided that behavior.

I just took a pause right now after writing that, to really let the dysfunctional nature behind her comments sink in, and remembering how confused I was as a kid about the appropriate way to interact with females. I can’t imagine what it’s like for teenagers today growing up in the #MeToo era.

Reflection

I don’t regret missing out on the action in High School. I’m quite proud of what I was able to accomplish when I fully committed to my studies and reduced my social life. And I was clearly ahead of my time if we compare to the dating climate now, so that gives me confidence that I would have always gone MGTOW, no matter what parallel paths I would have taken.

It’s reminiscent of a speech Rick Grimes gave in The Walking Dead, when he explained his survival experience and law-man background allows him to see threats before they happen.

I hope to do another school story that will be a compilation of all the tiny red pill moments that clued me in on female (and Blue Pill Simp) nature along the way. Will be fun.

5 Tips for Starting and Surviving No Fap [100 Days Update]

I realized my previous No-Fap updates might have been too advanced, so I have reflected on these past 100 days to offer some useful advice for the No-Fap newbies out there, and a new perspective for current practitioners to reach new heights.

Tip #1: The Zenkai Boost

I’ve used this analogy before, but a lot of the improvements observed during No-Fap can be likened to the same process Saiyans undergo in Dragon Ball Z, in which their power level dramatically increases after they recover from near-fatal injuries.

I specifically identified the “Zenkai Boost” effect after noticing the gaps in frequency for my nocturnal emissions, as the longer I practiced No-Fap, the further away each one occurred from the last.

In the event that you do experience failure on your No-Fap journey, keep in mind that every failure is still valuable experience.

If you are constantly evaluating your progress along the way, you can identify what your triggers are so that you can better avoid them in the next round.

No-Fap is also not a completely mental exercise; you are also dragging along a very incessant body that needs realignment and repair.

#2: Count the Consecutive AND Cumulative Days on No-Fap

Acknowledging our streak counts is by far the most easily recognized habit within the No-Fap community. However, the way it is commonly approached can be harmful to the new practitioner.

Great comment by this guy on a very comedic NoFapper vs. Coomer video.

Those that reject No-Fap are always on day 0, so even though you may fail repeatedly to create a decent streak, you are at least making an effort, and every single moment of those efforts should be recognized.

Start counting your days from the day you decided you wanted to change, because there are so many out there that actively reject to change this habit.

It’s unfair to say that my “Day 0” after hitting 163 days (my high score) is the same “Day 0” as another man who has never made it past 3 days.

All of your experience matters. Count it all.

If you do it this way, even if you fail, you are still on the path and always growing.

#3: Slowly Deprogram (Don’t Go Cold Turkey)

It has never been enjoyable, nor strategically successful, to sternly stamp my foot down and refuse to repeat a certain behavior after previously over-indulging in it.

This especially happens with food, as I used to respond to relapses in my dieting habits with a full day of fasting (sometimes even dry fasting) either to punish myself or hard reset my neural pathways.

It’s absolutely miserable, as it doesn’t make me feel accomplished while doing it, and failing to abide by my own punishment just confirms that I have no control of myself.

Yes, as No-Fappers, we are addicted to porn, but I believe it’s wiser to slowly limit my consumption of it over a certain period of time, and eventually get bored of it (since there’s no orgasm release), as opposed to constantly fighting and struggling against my curiosity.

In fact, new No-Fappers should probably shoot for building up on smaller streaks in the beginning rather than trying to hit a 30 day or 90 day reboot on their first try.

It seems to be the healthiest way to achieve lasting results. With porn, I think it’s better to become desensitized, through boredom and sound logic, rather than overly sensitive, through strict avoidance and repression.

#4 The Body Needs Discipline (This Stops Wet Dreams)

Isaac from Castlevania, meditating before his self-flagellation exercise

“The Body is sick. It must be purged. It must be focused. This is Holy work.” – Isaac from Castlevania (Netflix)

There are two schools of practice in No-Fap, and the divergence starts around the argument of whether or not a nocturnal emission affects your streak. Believing that it does is a likely path towards practicing full-on semen retention, but either way, a wet dream is not a fun event to go through.

Once again, there are two theories behind why it occurs in the first place.

The first theory is that your body does not yet have the mechanics for retention, neither the muscles nor the neuronal pathways, as it is adjusted to frequent ejaculation, so your body will attempt to expel semen when it is most vulnerable.

I remember a particular night after working out, I decided to skip my cold shower and go for a hot one before bed. I went to bed with a very strong fear that I was going to release at night during a dream, and not more than four hours later, I was disturbed by wildly sexual dreams, confirming my suspicion.

However, over time, my control of these dreams increased. At first, the ejaculations were almost instant, with little or no penetration at all. But as time went on, I was able to force them back, and eventually, not ejaculate at all during dream sex.

Which brings me to the second theory: A weak pelvic floor.

Debonair D has claimed that he has never experienced a wet dream, and he proposes that his natural defense is derived from his early adoption of frequent and heavy exercise, especially lower body workouts which relieve him of tension and pressure in the pelvic area, whereas other men who don’t exercise build up and unfortunately release this tension at night.

I also like to consider Yin/Yang and thermodynamic entropy as well. Having wet dreams is a symptom of the body having too much external heat (Yang energy). This is why I believe I released after my hot shower.

Therefore, incorporating more Yin practices (like meditation and cold showers) will invert the body’s heat and retain it. Making yourself colder will force the body to absorb the heat around you, as entropy is always attempting to achieve temperature uniformity.

#5 Constantly Ask Questions

“A question opens the mind. A statement closes the mind” – Robert Kiyosaki

The last piece of advice is a call back to an earlier article of mine, Two Questions To End Old Habits And Re-Organize Your Life

Structuring your life around bold statements does not seem to be a sustainable practice, and is probably why most New Year’s Resolutions fail after the first two months, or even sooner.

Although I have committed myself to one year of No-Fap and Keto diet training, I have not stated “I will do this for one year”, I have simply asked myself “What will happen if I do this for one year?”

We don’t know the future and we aren’t very good at even predicting our own behavior, so it’s important to keep our mindsets open and constantly gauge ourselves during our search for self-knowledge and wisdom.

If the urge to watch porn again comes up, you don’t have to be so adamantly against it, just simply ask a few questions.

What is the end goal of watching porn? It will most likely result in masturbation.

How does watching porn develop my character? I think it just makes me a person that watches porn.

What will I learn about myself? This one hurts. I don’t know! Is what I watch what I’m actually attracted to, or am I being programmed or manipulated into certain categories? However, I don’t think I’ll find the answer by watching more porn.

By asking questions, you make a graceful arrival to the logical conclusion, as opposed to the constant resistance of a definitive statement. It’s also a more mindful practice that introduces objective introspection rather than the ego investment that occurs through making declarations and promises to uphold or abstain from certain behaviors.

Don’t ever be afraid to not have an answer for your questions either. There is nothing wrong with an unsolved or open-ended question, as I believe just having the ability to ask it is enough proof of progress and demonstration of logic, and accepting the empty space is more likely to allow you to live in the present moment than believing every action needs to be explained.

“The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.” – Socrates

How I Used Vegeta Going Super Saiyan For Life + Fitness Inspiration

Another Anime/Dragon Ball article?! I know, I know, but trust me, this one’s good. But first, some build-up:

I’ve started the Athlean-X “22 Day” Ab Workout challenge:

On Day 3 I found myself quite lethargic, as there was just no sense of urgency for it, and I had to dig deep.

I used to have a few rivals to compete against physically, but to tell you the truth, being MGTOW feels like the ultimate victory over them already.

Anything more is kicking a blue-pilled man while he’s down.

I have a regular selection of Vegeta scenes from DBZ that I use for motivation, and some are more intense or thematic depending on my mood.

However, I still wasn’t resonating with any of them, so while laying down, procrastinating, I asked myself:

“Why do I really have to do this?”, and I answered, “Because you agreed to it.”

And so, I started the work out. It was difficult without any extrinsic motivations as well as no clear idea for an intrinsic purpose, but over time my pride and desire to complete the work out developed, and I eventually tapped into a deep-seeded anger within me that led me to completely dominating the work out.

I tapped into the evil in my heart.

Although I was about equal or slightly above my rivals in fitness, I now desired to completely blow them out of the water. And I went even further, including people that weren’t even exercising.

I specifically targeted a few people who were Christians, because I recently came out to my family that I did not believe in the Bible’s interpretation of God or the events about the life of Jesus.

These people claim to have this connection to the Holy Spirit, and yet they continue to make poor financial decisions, are unable to curb their diet, and are generally unproductive with their time.

So there I was, going Super Saiyan, with an M on my forehead, sharp breaths in between reps that I want to kill their God.

Fuck Yahweh.

And I have to say it felt pretty good.”


Day 4

I performed a chest workout the night before, and still felt motivated to show them all the true power of the Majin Spirit vs. The Holy Spirit, but after the workout was done I wasn’t interested in re-watching the motivational videos.

I took a cold shower and realized how big my life actually is, with all the other goals I want to accomplish, and my true purpose and ambition hardly concerns anyone else in my family.

Even during my nightly journal session, I just wasn’t on the frequency to criticize them anymore.

Arriving at Day 4 of the Ab workout, I hesitated to watch the Majin Vegeta video. For some reason, it felt like it was going to require more energy to get emotional about the whole ordeal, instead of turning my brain off and just going through the motions.

“I didn’t care anymore. I didn’t care about being better than Kakarot. I didn’t care about being a Super Saiyan. I didn’t care if I lived! I didn’t care about anything! And then, it happened.” – Vegeta

Advertisements

Vegeta had always felt that Goku surpassing him was an insult to his birthright as “The Prince of All Saiyans.” But what Vegeta had to realize was that Goku was never gunning for that position; Goku was always in his own lane.

Goku doesn’t even use his Saiyan-given name “Kakarot”. The Saiyan race is effectively dead and Vegeta and Goku are the last ones left, as their children are half-breed. There is no kingdom left to rule.

Vegeta became Super Saiyan when he finally dissolved his ego, and let go of all those external motivations. He had the power level to achieve the state a long time ago, but it was his insecurities and mental blocks that prevented it.

When he no longer cared about that, when his external world crumbled to the point that it nearly got him killed, that’s when his mind was forced to retreat into the quietness of his inner world, and suddenly, he exploded back as a Super Saiyan.

Unfortunately for Vegeta, reaching his goal made his pride multiple times worse than it was before, which led him to taking actions that would heavily endanger himself and the other characters in later arcs.

And so, I will stop where I am now and use his lesson.

I do have emotional issues. Insecurities. Pride. But I have to let it go.

When the workout started to get tough, and the images of the people I was angry at flashed into my mind, I let them go.

“I want to become my own person.” I told myself.

I may not be able to go Super Saiyan in real life, but I can enter a flow state, and it always requires me to lose my ego:


From Wikipedia:

“Jeanne Nakamura and Csíkszentmihályi identify the following six factors as encompassing an experience of flow:[2]

  • Intense and focused concentration on the present moment
  • Merging of action and awareness
  • A loss of reflective self-consciousness
  • A sense of personal control or agency over the situation or activity
  • A distortion of temporal experience, one’s subjective experience of time is altered
  • Experience of the activity as intrinsically rewarding, also referred to as autotelic experience”

It’s possible that I could continue to use those dark emotional feelings as fuel to power my workouts to incredible heights, like how Vegeta’s fury kept him alive at 450x Earth’s gravity, but I don’t think that power comes free.

What I gain in physical power might result in a trade-off that holds me back emotionally. It would drain me spiritually. And just like Vegeta’s case, it could also end up backfiring and hurt me physically.

I have to thank Immortal Mindz. I feel like he supported my comment because he secretly knew what was coming next.

I won’t dissuade anyone from using these negative forces and external factors to motivate themselves for their goals. We all resonate with different frequencies, and Vegeta’s was particularly dark. He was outer space under a lightning storm and meteor shower for goodness’ sake!

But through the darkness came the bright light of the Super Saiyan.

Response to the Regretful Valedictorian: Relationships, Potential, and MGTOW Monk Mode

Congratulations.

If you haven’t watched his speech, in essence, he regretted sacrificing his relationships and social life in order to earn his status as Valedictorian. He was elated for all but 15 seconds when it was confirmed, but arrived at the 16th second with emptiness

“Relationships are where we get to influence, impact, and change people’s lives. Your life can not be meaningful without them.” – Kyle Martin, TKA Class of 2019 Valedictorian

I too know the struggle Kyle. I sacrificed my own relationships in high school for the same achievement, and went even further, dedicating my summers, weekends, and some after-school sessions to strengthen my SAT scores and college applications to enter a top university.

I was satisfied with this peak after high school, and completely threw grades out the window when I started university, going full social life, even joining a fraternity, and well, the rest is a hazy history. (I did earn consecutive Dean’s List awards when I returned to college, however).

Despite only spending three semesters at that university, I’m very fortunate that I still have the ability to call a few of those guys up and hang with them if I were in town.

But that’s just the thing; I’d have to be in town.

You think relationships are important to you because of immediacy and proximity, but after you and your friends move away to start your careers, not many of these relationships will survive the distance. And a relationship like a wife and child will come at the cost of your other platonic relationships.

Even your parents would want you to move out and start your own life eventually.

You can’t always take people with you, and that’s why I personally wouldn’t advise tailoring your life’s meaning to coincide with such independent external forces such as social relationships.

Success

For me, being Valedictorian will always be, like David Goggins says, a trophy in my mind.

Achieving your goals creates a reservoir of confidence.

It’s not about the 16th second, but about the 16th week or the 16th month or the 16th year when you suddenly lose your confidence and begin to doubt yourself again.

Your personal accomplishments are permanent reminders that you have seen greatness, and reflecting on this proof of your past success can propel you to overcome future struggles and achieve future goals.

Faith

Kyle was only 0.06 points above his competitor for Valedictorian. She and the other students below him in rank may never attain the same level of confidence in the future.

Kyle ended his speech on Faith, and having a relationship with Jesus Christ.

But what is Faith, other than a stronger synonym for confidence?

If I had to my put faith in anyone, it would actually be the salutatorian.

While Kyle could not foresee the 16th second of his life after earning his Valedictorian status, Lauren was able to appreciate the duality of this graduation ceremony, appreciating all the small steps that led up to this grand event, but also recognizing that it’s all a much smaller moment in the entirety of her life and of time as a whole.

“Seniors, as we stand on the cusp of a new season, I challenge you to maintain perspective. Like tonight’s graduation is merely a gradation in the scheme of life, our lives are a gradation in the swath of eternity. And so, I ask you, do you know the one that holds tomorrow?” – Lauren Arrington, TKA Class of 2019 Salutatorian

Happiness

I have no place to tell others what should make them happy. If your life feels more fulfilling pursuing relationships rather than witnessing the extent of your potential, that is what you have decided to keep in your heart throughout your journey.

I just believe that you should hold no regrets Kyle, because your accomplishment was indeed worth it, and the relationships you hold so dearly can not only be more meaningful, but increasingly numerous and influential when we have achieved our full potential.

Were your friends and family not more proud of you because of your accomplishment?

If you were not Valedictorian, you would have never had the platform to give your speech and influence your entire senior class, and, if not for your controversial topic, the 5 million+ viewers on YouTube as well.


MGTOW / Monk Mode

“A lesson learned should be a lesson shared”, as Kyle said.

Likewise, there is one lesson, but two paths to learning it, in MGTOW philosophy.

The first is learning it the hard way, which is the painstaking process of redefining your life after the highly coveted relationships you tethered your life’s meaning behind have disastrously dissolved. This usually occurs during a divorce.

However, you can also discover MGTOW the easy way, which is heeding the lessons from these previously burned men, and choosing to stay far away from the fire.

“A clever person solves problems. A wise person avoids it” – Albert Einstein

Then there are the men who go Monk: The ones that are willing to go down the path of life relatively alone.

They have greatly limited or sworn off all relationships with women/romantic partners, most platonic friendships, and quite possibly, even their own families.

Some men choose this path for the freedom, the peace, and quiet.

But others, like myself, have chosen this path to simply see ourselves, in our entirety. It is a path of self-knowledge and self-sufficiency.

Who are we, exactly, without the influence of others? Could we still function, alone, without society? If you were left with no one but yourself to serve, without any distractions, could you complete your greatest work?

What is your great work?

Most MGTOW are completely content retiring early due to the financial independence earned from not having to provide for a wife or kids.

But to the rare few of us in MGTOW, the 1%, the radical monks, sustenance and wealth building are just trivial logistical concerns.

What truly sustains us is the complete output of our full potential. The only regret to have is not ever knowing the feeling of having the full weight of your being behind a singular goal, and courageously setting out to accomplish it.


Not much from this world can be taken with you to the grave, or the afterlife, so if reflecting on all the relationships you made throughout your life is going to make you smile on your deathbed, by all means, live that life to the fullest.

But “a lesson learned should be a lesson shared” as Kyle said, so here is my lesson:

The happiness you can create while completely alone is a happiness you can experience every second of your life, and not just the 16th.

My Personal Milestone Goals (Being A New Content Creator Feels Like The Chunin Exams)

In the Naruto franchise, which I’m referencing for this article, there are three ranks of ninja classes.

The lowest rank is Genin, whom function as school students for the majority of their time. However, they are able to be promoted through the Chunin Exams.

Using this comparison, consumers and commentators of content are the Genin. They enjoy studying the content and will occasionally go on “missions”, which would be more elaborate commenting, or gain the supervision of a Jonin (high rank ninja), which would be akin to being a donor for exclusive content from well established creators.

The Chunins, on the other hand, are people like myself, who now feel they are ready to graduate from the academy and put their skills to the test.

It’s a great feeling, but also a daring one, as I can no longer comment from a distance if I disagree with a specific content creator. I actually have to provide the proof with my own work.

On the other hand, this has given me a lot of confidence, as any dislikes or dissenting comments I receive won’t be worth much to me if the person who made them does not also produce content themselves.

There is a great appreciation for those that support my content, but there can only be a mutual respect for detractors if they are putting in as much effort as I am.

I have and will continue to also challenge higher profile content producers, but very sparingly, as I am not interested in drama or farming their audience for clicks.

Another cool thing about the Chunin exams are that the Genin are not promoted by the majority rule of the village (so, I can’t say something cheesy like, “I’ll finally make it when I hit 10,000+ subscribers!”), but are instead promoted by other Ninja and the Feudal Lord observing the exam.

Although I’m not completely dependent on validation from other content creators, I do regularly compare my skills against theirs, and derive inspiration and new skills from studying their methods. Thus, I have came up with some important benchmarks for myself that I would consider a promotion through my content.

A Seat At The Table With…Happy Humble Hermit

HHH is one of my favorite MGTOW content creators, and it would be a personal reward for me to have a sit-down talk with the man.

One of his most popular videos on Miyamoto Musashi was actually the inspiration for my Way of The Sword: Part I story, as it was the first time I learned about the swordsman’s life.

He very often encourages other MGTOW to get involved and produce their own content, and I have followed a lot of his advice in his “How To” start up guide video.

He is studying in college to become a teacher, and I’ve even taken inspiration from him on that as well. I’m at a crossroads in my career, as I have an opportunity to score a decent job and settle with my Associate’s degree, or continue to further my education to a Bachelor’s, in which my ideal job afterward would also be as a teacher.

The summers and holiday breaks off is a huge incentive, and will provide me great opportunities to continue to work on my side jobs, (like this site!).

Lastly, another of my MGTOW idols, Itachi MGTOW, whom I also wrote about previously, looked up to Hermit as well, and has been featured on his channel a few times. A sit down with Hermit would let me know I am approaching the same level of prestige as my former mentor.

808-1,000 days of No-Fap

808 is the number no-fap guru Gold Jacket Luke ended his highest streak on, and after reaching that number I will commemorate any no-fapper’s success in reaching that number as Happy Gold Jacket Luke day!

Hopefully he doesn’t take it as a personal dig, but 808 is a dope number, anyway, honestly.

Karezza + 1 year Semen Retention

Semen Retention is the next logical level to ascend to after achieving some foundation in No Fap.

Watching content from Debonair D and Health Then Opulence is actually what inspired this article, as I had two very clear elder content creators in which the distance between my experience and theirs made it very difficult for me to detract or advise them, since they’ve accumulated so much experience in this field and I’m barely out of ground zero.

One angle I have over them, however, is Karezza, and I must credit Gold Jacket Luke for enlightening me to this knowledge. It appears to be less widely known than other practices on retention, especially since the term wasn’t coined until the 1800’s.

From watching their content, it seems that both men still demonstrate a very clear divide between them and their sexual partners. They do not see the bias in allowing the female to orgasm, while they focus on retaining.

Through Karezza, both partners do not orgasm and eliminate the divide and bond very deeply together. However, I have not practiced it myself, so even though I feel they could benefit greatly from it, I have no platform to preach from.

Keto Diet + Curing Candida

It’s been 55 straight days of my Keto, Anti-Candida diet (with plenty of those days being One-Meal-A-Day fasting).

Finally achieving the hormonal balance and purging, rebuilding, and fortifying of my gut would be a huge accomplishment and also provide me a wealth of data and experience to share and introduce others into the wider health community.

I hope I can achieve some results in six months, but I am aiming for a full year to perfect this diet so I would be confident enough to lightly guide others in a helpful direction.

Monk Mode

Lastly, if I could optimize my Monk Mode focus to get myself out of this apartment and into a single in New York City (with these high rents, this is not an easy task), I would actually have the privacy I need to become more prolific with recording and uploading videos.

The videos will almost always follow my written content anyway, but with a new mic and some private space, I could catch up on a lot of my articles and provide my viewers with more content.

I would even have the ability to host live streams! So that will be a whole new level of production for me, and most certainly signifies my promotion.


That’s all for now. Just a fun little article for myself. I hope you enjoyed it too.

What would you make you feel accomplished and warrant a promotion to the next content creator level? Let me know.

The Way of The Sword: Part I

This story is titled part one because The Way of the Sword is something not readily apparent and required my meditation for some time. But perhaps I have scratched the surface now for some scraps to mull over today.

I know a little bit about Miyamoto Musashi, Japan’s all-time greatest swordsman, and desire to read his books one day. But I have decided to first seek within on this matter.

As a fan of martial arts, I was of course fascinated by his legacy, as many others are too, but I began to feel disturbed to derive inspiration from a man who has killed so many. Wanting to strike another man down, especially for sport, comes off as dysfunctional to me, and I know Musashi was not raised in a stable home.

But despite that, human nature does not automatically reject violence. The combat sport industry has been a successful one across many civilizations and centuries, including today, as we enjoy MMA/boxing bouts, and even the small scuffles in more tame sports.

So, was living the life of a dueling swordsman just about the thrill of combat?

A duel to the death must activate you in some extraordinary manner. Maybe it’s an adrenaline high that keeps them coming back? Even street racers could recognize this feeling.

But Musashi did not die a brute. He passed away as a dignified leader of a school, adoptive father, artist, serviceman, and published strategist and philosopher.

So, pulling back from just Musashi, and looking at all the men who participate in this sword dueling realm, I will give them more credit and ask, was it about human potential?

Is it possible that leaving one’s fate to the decision of the duel is the ultimate quest for seeking self-knowledge and fundamental truth?

Consider this, if you strike a man down in a duel, you live, and he dies. It is uncontestable who was better. That much is at least provable.

Life and death seem to be the only realms we can’t really argue about. You’re here and then you’re not.

However dysfunctional it may be resorting to violence in this manner, two men agree on an even playing field with both having something to prove. They both test their human ability, and only one is allowed to live with confirmation about the way he views the world.

Something deep within me resonates with the definiteness and decisiveness that is the life and the Way of the sword.

I have found myself lately with a subtle aching to strike a man down, but not physically.

Let me explain.

Every man has their own worldview, and I believe the peak of masculinity is to commit yourself to see that world through.

My worldview, my beliefs, perspectives, and actions I take on my path, is my sword. Although I am mostly practicing my forms and sharpening my sword alone, there are many other men also trying to shape the world, and slowly I’m realizing that eventually we will have to cross paths.

That is when my world view, my masculinity, will be tested.

It won’t be life or death, but whether with a sword or a pen, a contest of ideas is the only way to know the truth about the path the man is on.

If he loses, he learns his method is incomplete. If he wins, he lives to seek another opponent, continuously, until he is the best.

The only danger I foresee on this path is to have rivals, because once a rival is defeated, I would be left without a purpose. Ego and emotional investment in the affair can be misleading.

So, I suppose the real fight is to discover the truth.

In the age of Miyamoto Musashi, using physical means was the easiest way to impose truth into reality. And the contest being within the threat of death was also the fastest way to activate the complete necessity of a man’s full potential.

But there’s no way it can just be chalked up to just mindless violence. There must have been something more ethereal, spiritual, about the Way that attracted so many men to it.

Whether he lived or died, the Way of the Sword granted a man the greatest opportunity to settle the incessant chatter within his head and uncontestably revealed to him his place within the world.  

The Way of the Sword requires 100% of you; a full commitment.

The Way of the Sword is putting everything on the line in order to know.
