1 Year Celibacy Update – 98 Days Remaining

I have chosen no better time than now to already have been in celibate monk mode for the past several months now, as the lifestyle has served as training for what life would become during lock down before it actually happened. However, I wouldn’t say my practice has completely insulated me from the social distancing side effects.

In fact, I feel more obligated to restart my social life to make up for the great blow dealt to the pyschosphere from this quarantine suppressing our humanity.

Yes, I do appreciate solitude, but I know for a fact that tensions and desires have been pressurizing as we eagerly wait for the return to normal human interactions, especially the romantic kind. I almost don’t want to miss that initial wave of thirst when the flood gates open.

But as a MGTOW in Monk Mode, the method of determining the next direction of my life isn’t that simple.

While the average person had their social life forcibly removed, and therefore feels like something is missing, I voluntarily replaced my social life with my work and personal achievements long ago. Getting back into dating and socializing after such a long time will actually result in a trade-off or loss, as less work, money, and progress will be made.

If I was still watching TV and playing video-games, it would be very easy to just say I am simply replacing some of my previous pastimes with dating. But lately, my main hobby has been to work on Moon Base MGTOW, and any spare time after that is left for exercise and self-study.

“If a man has already identified that he will not extend any long-term commitments to any woman, then there is truly nothing of lasting value that can be created through your relationships with women. Short-term dating thus becomes another form of cheap entertainment.”

Creativity Is Leisure: Why You Should Consume Only What You Intend To Create

That said, this hardcore focus is quite recent, and I have no idea how permanent this new found logic truly is. It was only a little over 30 days ago that my binge watching of Gurren Laggan caused me to have a nocturnal emission , and if you look at the picture below, I don’t think I need to explain why I was so interested in the show.

A failure to properly sublimate my dissatisfaction and desires led me to engaging in escapism.

After the Yoko incident, I chose more wholesome anime, but still consumed it for a slightly similar reason. Over the last month, I have binge watched around 300 episodes of Naruto, with the urgency stemming from wanting to get to the end of the series and the start of its sequel, Boruto, as the romance between the main character and a love interest is finally resolved with them marrying and having children.

I was not interested in watching the filler episodes this time, but the only ones I would have sat through were the ones with Naurto and Hinata, so I actually searched YouTube for a compilation of all their exchanges so I wouldn’t miss out on anything. One of the YouTube comments said “I wish Hinata was real.”, and I really resonated with that, I must admit.

But fast forward to today, I haven’t watched the show in over a week, and gaming feels like a chore. Every time a thought of being leisurely comes to mind, I counter it with a possibility that I could instead squeeze in more productivity.

The same sexual energy I had to keep pressing “Play Next” for Naruto is now what I use to power through my quota hours and push out more creative content across my websites. And it almost feels like I’m just getting started. I haven’t hit the wall yet, and I just might stay in Monk Mode.

But I can’t say that I can attribute all of my recent success to suppressing my sex drive, but in fact it is because of my sex drive that I am so successful.

“But maybe, at the back of my mind, I know things are only going this well because at the end of it all, I still desire the whole carrot... All my debts will be paid off and I’ll have my own space. I’ll have more money and free time to date.

So, if I start running any faster, or my goal seems to be getting closer, it’s only because I’ve gotten hornier, and hungrier.

INTO THE DEPTHS OF DESIRE – DRY FASTING + NO FAP HARD MODE/MONK

Indeed, I am trying my absolute best to crash into the wall of my productivity so that I finally do have an excuse to take a night off and go out dating every once in a while. But as I’ve said, it’s not that easy to do that as a MGTOW.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been influenced by hanging out too long in MGTOW circles that I want to appear to be super logical about my social situation, or that it truly is a genuine feeling of self-guilt that I’ll receive if I’m not making a giant dent in the universe everyday with the maximum amount of progress towards my goals.

But unfortunately it’s even more than that; My head has never been more clear these days and I’m the most focused I’ve ever been.

Even though I considered signing up for some dating apps recently to have something already set up when the lock down is over, the time I would spend browsing and chatting would be reminiscent of my previous wasteful habits infinitely scrolling through social media. I’m already so close to kicking my YouTube habit as well, as I have the ability to refresh the video feed on there too which results in small time sinks.

Essentially, the puzzle is, now that I’ve cultivated such a magnificent focus, should I continue building on it or can I safely divert my attention? Can more self-knowledge be attained right now through simply observing but not engaging with my desires, or is a social/dating life really a dimension worth exploring at this time?

I’m not sure yet, but I’m so thankful I still have 98 more days to figure it all out.

41 Articles Celebration: Responding To Comments!

It’s that time again!

I now have a total of five platforms I publish my content on, so that’s five times the chance for more comments. I’ll be shouting out and responding to all of them here, even if I replied already. I’ll also provide some extra backstory to some of the articles referenced here as well, so you’re not just scrolling through everyone just to get to yours.

Let’s go.

Simple Comments

First thing’s first, got to shout out Philskie1. He was the first comment right after my 10 Videos, 25 Articles celebration video, and then he came back to hype me up on Fears of Leaving Monk Mode. I haven’t published any videos since last month, and I’m not happy about that, so now that I’m at 41 articles, I think I’ll make a better effort to also catch my videos up in number.

I’ll be back soon, and I hope you’re still around! Thank you Philskie1.

Primalties liked my Minimalism and Mental Mobility video, and so did Brian K Leaks. Maybe I should have asked why they were so intrigued and thankful for the video. I hope you guys see this and let me know! Thank you.

Funny Comments

WHY ARE YOU AN IDIOT left me a very beautiful poem on my Only Dating For Status video. I’m quite speechless from it actually, thank you.

I think Smart Halaya is another one of those types that comment without actually watching the video, which sucks because Is There More To Life? is one of my favorite videos!

But anyway, he did leave some pretty funny clips about how Muslim husbands keep their wives in check and how Islam supports it. Also, the censorship isn’t malicious in this case, I think it’s fair for the algorithm to be suspicious of comments containing too many links. Be mindful of that guys! Thanks.

Article Comments

Most of my comments come from my video channels, so before I get to them I’d like to highlight some feedback from my blog sites since we are celebrating the progress made there after all. These comments are from Publish0x, a new blogging website that pays you in crypto for reading and writing articles! I’ve been backing up all my content there, and slightly revising the stories as I go.

Two Questions To End Old Habits

Yep, I don’t think kids will be able to look that far into the future as I advise. (What is the end goal of this action?). The only problem I have with kids playing video games nowadays is that iPads and phones give off too much EMF radiation. I at least grew up with brothers, so we were able to play with toys or make-believe if we didn’t play any vidya, but with the low birth rate we have these days there are lots of kids growing up alone, and that’s kind of boring.

I did play way too many video games when I was younger though. In middle school, I played so much Monster Hunter in gym class, my school was shocked when I was on the winning relay race team that won us a trophy. Then I got XBox Live in high school, and I didn’t even learn how to play basketball until after I got kicked out of college.

If I could go back though, I would still keep the games, but cut back on academics and increase sports. Being valedictorian was pretty good, but honestly I could have been a track-and-field star and have gone to a good college on scholarship anyway.

Game design and fiction is all I have now. I hope I can be a genius in that field too, otherwise, I’ve completely squandered my life and am supremely fucked! Haha!

Thank you Aerials.

It’s Harder To Come Out As Bisexual Rather Than Gay

It’s funny how Snarfy thought no one would reply. I should be having that fear! This article actually got two downvotes, so I’m the one who needs to be thankful.

Who knows how far back the LGBT goes in history and evolution, but if we do live in a sick society today because it’s so prevalent now, I would at least like LGBT to be treated as a symptom of society’s said sickness, rather than a cause for it. Also, I’m sure these pro-natal religious breeders have never considered the exponential growth of the human population. That’s the real sickness. I don’t think many people realize they should be grateful some people are pairing off into genetic dead ends.

Thanks again, Snarfy.

Why I Quit Medium.com And Think The Site Will Die

My most upvoted and most tipped story on Publish0x!

I honestly could have made a go-of-it on Medium. Two of my articles actually got over 3-5k views. But the site was just becoming a dumpster fire. One of the last writers I followed knew it was just a numbers game and would publish multiple times a day, recycling a lot of content.

I also never mentioned the political bias on that website (obviously social justice left-leaning folks there), and that’s another tell tale for the longevity of the website. But the Attention-Based approach I have here on my site with the Brave Browser and on Publish0x is the way of the future anyway.

I hated the subscription feature on Medium from the start. Thanks woodenwookie.

Stand Alone Comments

There was a misunderstanding here, as all my uploads on MGTOW.tv were accidentally behind a paywall. It was pretty cool for him to call me out for it and show some curiosity on what I had to offer because it let me know about that problem, so I really appreciate this one here.

My content should always be free, but I do have some ideas for crowdfunded content in the future. In the meantime though, if you ever have a topic you would like me to cover in both article and video format, you may kindly buy me a coffee at Ko-fi.com.

Buy Me a Coffee at ko-fi.com

The standard price is now $9, but hey, people pay more for about 30 seconds on the TFM show, so I think it doesn’t hurt to ask. It’s only there for the people that really love me anyway, and extra sweat and research will go into any commissioned work.

Anyway, thank you SentientVerity!

Well, I don’t know much about the crimes of Warren Buffet, and should ask to be enlightened on that matter. He can’t be worse than George Soros, right?

Speaking of enlightenment, I too have some thoughts on nihilism and this pandemic.

Sneak Peek: I think the article will be called On The Surface of the Soul, which was teased in my last article as well. But I think I’ll write it after this whole thing blows over. I hate bandwagons.

Thank you BlackPilledBeltMonkkido

I too love helping people, maybe too much, actually. People should really be careful about telling me their goals, because I would actually be there to help them and make sure they see it through.

Working in food and retail killed any chance of me becoming a simp though. In some places, only the men were required to work the stock room, and yet the women would get the same pay as us. A supermarket I worked at was quite egalitarian though, and I always reminded the women anytime they wanted me to do a “favor” for them (aka, their work) that we had equal pay.

By the way, I like Blue Moon and Guinness personally, but I can say Natural Ice and Golden Monkey are two beers that have hurt me haha. Thank you VulcanCannon!

*Rubs hands* Okay!

TFM was the man that got me into MGTOW, actually, after his episode on the Red Man Group (which I was a fan of at the time). I couldn’t argue against his logic and have been going my own way ever since. Months later, the Red Man Group started shaming men with sex dolls, and didn’t even have the balls to invite TFM again. Truly a pathetic group.

I’m no TFM fanboy though. It seems like he keeps repeating himself because he produces so much content, along with Sandman. I personally enjoy Sandman because he can see the future, literally with his pre-cognitive dreaming, but also because he’s always theorizing about the next trends, and he got me on the Brave Browser, which has worked out well.

I’ve checked the archives here and there on that MGTOW Mount Rushmore you mentioned. I still actively watch Stardusk but he’s a bit long-winded sometimes. My favorite MGTOW today are Happy Humble Hermit, Renegade #1, Ronin Man (wild card) and Red Pill on Steroids. RIP Kurama/Itachi Reloaded

Thanks OldWolf207.

Yes, I agree. My MGTOW way is to make every effort to keep yourself unbound. Self-sufficiency is one of the ultimate goods.

Thank you mgtow lucid dream. Dope username.

And Speaking of MGTOW is freedom….

Big John

Mr X. calls Big John a cheap suit, and BlackPilledBeltMonkkido says John is a Champion of MGTOW. Interesting.

Honestly, I never really watched any of Big John’s content, I just used that one segment for my arguement against Rollo Tomassi’s article. But I think Mr. X is another guy who comments without actually watching the video though.

SilentVerity is back with a very sobering speech on the state of affairs in the manosphere. I never understood why Rollo Tomassi and the RMG would rag on RSD. I suppose it’s just marketing on their end, but to us MGTOW, there’s no difference between them. Even before I was MGTOW I started to notice that there were a few guys in these groups that were logical and wanted a simple life, and these PUA teachers are setting them up for consumerism and sex addiction, and nowadays, divorce and false rape accusations.

No thanks.

We’re going our own way. Thanks guys.

Productivity

I’ve got a treat for you guys. I managed to get mindrapeart to divulge all his resources and routines to pull off the 10+ hours of work he claims to complete daily.

Personally though, I realized I don’t want the extra edge that badly. I feel like any performance enhancements is just stealing from your own body in some way. I’d much rather try to cultivate a force from within, David Goggins style.

I worked nearly seven hours straight today, and it’s been quite satisfying constantly evaluating my progress and finally developing a strategy that keeps me working for so long, and I’m getting better everyday. But, the advice is here for all of you if you want to try-hard it.

mgtow is monk and I have some career goals in common, but I’m really unsure if I will return to college. That said, I think I’m leaning more towards the higher salary jobs now, since we can apparently retire on $200k in south east asia, I might as well take the fastest track to getting to that. But I don’t qualify for financial aid so, it’s doubtful. I might at least try to finish my associates and call it a night.

Thanks guys.

No Fap and Semen Retention

I believe it’s Day 81 on No Fap right now, and Day 36 for my sub-streak of No Porn. Hope you’re doing well Zeal.

Also, Crazy Diamond has come to the same realizations I have, that despite the incredible draw from our sex drive, there is still a deeper dissatisfaction within us that doesn’t allow us to control it. I too have experienced the over-consumption of other vices to cover up my desire to watch naked bodies slamming together.

But now, my sensual dispositions are so much clearer to me. I hope you’ve read Into The Depths of Desire – Dry Fasting + No Fap Hard Mode/Monk to get the full scoop.

You’ve made it this far, so you deserve my real secrets. The deepest red pills I could gather from my fellow companions here.

I demonstrate to X-51 that I only arrive to my esoteric beliefs through logical reasoning. I’ve already left one fairy tale religion, I’m not just going to switch factions.

But we end the responses with Aerials comment, which backs me up and even offers the female perspective on the practice. It was really validating to see this, because this practice is so esoteric, it’s just nice to see another person outside of the circles I study in also confirm that I’m not completely insane for following it. So thank you, Aerials.

Like I said, I think I should start catching up my videos, as I only have 14 right now.

Monk Moon Base

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.

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.

See you on the Far Side – Monk Moon Base

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.

Two Questions To End Old Habits and Re-Organize Your Life

There is little use in structuring your life on definitive statements.

“I’m going to lose weight this year.”

“I’m going to save more money.”

“I wont relapse again.”

We command ourselves as if we know and have full control of our behavior. We feel empowered in that moment to make these statements, and our resolve feels real, but how great are we really at predicting the future?

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

Let’s stop acting like we know. At the very best, let’s commit to making an educated guess, or defer to the data we already have, and lead ourselves down a better path of self-knowledge and curiosity.

Here are the questions:

What is the end goal of this action?

and how does it develop my character? (Or alternatively, what does this teach me about myself?)


What Is The End Goal?

This question helped me to quit video-games (or at least put them on pause for a while), because I realized there was no end-game for the habit.

There are so many new games being released every month. And yet, there are also so many old games that I have yet to play. After I finish one game, I will just have to pull another one off of the backlog and finish that one too, while my wish list simultaneously builds up.

Never ending consumption.

So I’ve given away my Nintendo Switch. In my two decades of playing video games, I have surely accumulated enough data to at least extract a meaningful 20% of video-games that will encompass 80% of my total playing time now.

I have a Nintendo Wii with most of my favorite games on it already, and a CRT TV to reproduce the aesthetic feel. Why do I need anything more?

We may not be able to predict the future, but asking yourself what is the end goal? will most certainly stop you from an endless road of unceasing consumption. You may have already arrived. You may have all that you need for the right now.

How Does This Develop My Character/ What Does This Teach Me About Myself?

This is another great question to ask when you are faced with repeating your old habits.

Suppose you are committed to a new healthy diet, and suddenly you are craving something off the menu. Why should you indulge this craving?

You already know that you want this particular thing, how would indulging in it provide you with additional self-knowledge?

I love donuts. In my life I’ve eaten 1,000 donuts. What new pathway will be opened up if I go up to 1,001?

And there’s no need to commit or to promise never again to eat donuts, but simply ask what is the end goal of this donut? How will this donut develop my character?

It may not serve you now, but it could be relevant in another season. Don’t cry. Don’t run. Don’t have such strong beliefs for yourself.

Let’s just be open and try and ask more meaningful questions which lead to more meaningful resolutions.

Creativity Is Leisure: Why You Should Consume Only What You Intend To Create

Photo Credit: Kaspar Eligitis

The average individual’s definition of “relaxing” after a long day at work is coming home and watching TV. I see a problem with this, because the first thing you look forward to after spending the whole day producing for someone else, is to now consume from someone else.

Retreating to entertainment media for leisure is actually increasing the total length of time you are passive throughout the day.

What parts of the day are you experiencing something solely derived from you?

If you truly wanted to relax, you could work out, stretch, meditate, or just go to sleep.

But if you can still keep your eyes open, then you can still work.


I know someone who claimed they wanted to get back into their old artistic passion, and decided to wake up at 5 AM in an effort to create space for this new habit.

They never once woke up to do this. The weekend passed and it was back to the same old eat-dinner-and-TV routine right after work.

Why did this person fail? Because they saw the time spent “unwinding” with entertainment media as a necessity, and didn’t register at all that this was the exact old habit that had to be sacrificed to create space for the new habit they desired.

I don’t think entertainment media is all bad. I am a fiction writer and would love to contribute to the industry one day. But lately I haven’t felt the juice for that type of creative work, and it’s most likely because I’m not immersing myself in that type of environment right now.

This is why I said Consume Only What You Intend To Create; If you want to make movies, by all means, watch movies! But if you’re not going to work on your script, or at least write a movie review about it afterwards, then seriously, you’re just masturbating.

“Energy Flows Where Attention Goes” – Tony Robbins

We need to stop putting our energy towards things that are going to result in dead-ends.

You have to be even more mindful about what you consume especially if you are an artist or entrepreneur, because of your easily stimulated imagination. Hardly anything is a true dead-end because you can extract some artistic value or a business idea from almost anything. But this sort of behavior can spread yourself thin.

And you know the exact type of people I’m talking about; the ones that always have a brilliant new idea and plans, but never actually produce anything in the long run.

It’s because they have not allowed that space for themselves to create, and are most likely filling up their time with passive, unfruitful garbage.

I could even extend this idea to MGTOW. If a man has already identified that he will not extend any long-term commitments to any woman, then there is truly nothing of lasting value that can be created through your relationships with women. Short-term dating thus becomes another form of cheap entertainment.

So, finally, Creativity Is Leisure.

After I’m done working, heck, even between breaks, I’m at my blog site and drafting a new article to publish. And now, editing videos! (Here’s my first one). It’s only when my laptop finally dies and is recharging that I can turn on YouTube or read some articles on mobile to enjoy other creatives that have common interests.

I think I just began to realize that with all the media I consumed over the years I have very little to actually show for it. But by becoming a content creator myself, I can develop my own personal media library, and have something to contribute alongside the other creatives I’m inspired by.

I’m always thinking about what skill or content I can offer to a community.

There’s no reason why we have to always sit on the sidelines and be spectators; Always the worker and never the boss. We should all have an opportunity to express ourselves and have our own voice.

Creativity is Leisure simply because working for yourself, and expressing yourself, should always be the most fun. Even in your passive state, your antennas should always be up looking for the next point of inspiration.

If you want to relax, go to sleep, so you can have more energy to do the important work the next day.

But if your eyes are still open, see yourself through greatness, and not through the reflection of a screen.

You Are What You Produce And Consume: Not A Product Of Your Environment

I can recall a lecture from Sadhguru where a student had asked for advice on maintaining his spiritual practice while back home with his distracting family members.

Sadhguru answered, in short, that your spirituality should never be so fragile.

“It is the power of the mind to be unconquerable.” – Seneca

I started to come to this knowledge during my own health journey, as I’m approaching three weeks of my Anti-Candida version of the Keto Diet, and also eating only one-meal-a-day to set the difficulty rating on Hardcore mode.

I have failed many times in the past, and I had considered quitting entirely on several occasions, stating that until I moved away into my own place, I would never be able to avoid giving in to the off-menu items my other housemates regularly consume.

I was giving myself an excuse to be mediocre until I was handed the opportunity to be great.

What nonsense. You can’t blame people or your environment for your failures.

When I finally reach my goal weight, I would have been the only person to have done it for myself. Likewise, I was the only person responsible for gaining all the weight to begin with. No one else ate the food for me, and no one else could lose it for me either.

Seeing yourself as separate from your environment is a tool for Self-Mastery, as where you are and who you are with will never become a reason to compromise on your principles.

Your environment slowly becomes only yourself, and your abilities, focusing only on the things within your control. And the most immediate thing you can change, in any environment, is yourself and your opinions on the matter.

The bag of chips on the counter; the fresh brewed coffee in the kitchen; the donuts out on the table; if none of them align with your own personal values, then they do not become part of your ecosystem; They simply belong to someone else.

You don’t just pull clothes off mannequins and electronics off shelves at stores; there are boundaries in place that we respect. In turn, you must build your own personal boundaries out of self-respect for yourself.

It takes too much effort to change your environment anyway, as it is far too rigid with too many authors attached to it. Conversely, relying on your environment to help you produce results is also unwise as it can prove unpredictable with the amount of variables that are able to run through it.

You should treat everything around you in this life as a total accident, but what you choose to create and consume are complete deliberate actions.

Where you are right now is exactly where you need to be, because you’re not actually here anyway.

You’re always here. Right here. In your mind!

“Remember that the ruling faculty is invincible, when self-collected it is satisfied with itself, if it does nothing which it does not choose to do, even if it resist from mere obstinacy. What then will it be when it forms a judgment about anything aided by reason and deliberately? Therefore the mind which is free from passions is a citadel, for man has nothing more secure to which he can fly for refuge and for the future be inexpugnable. He then who has not seen this is an ignorant man; but he who has seen it and does not fly to this refuge is unhappy.”

Marcus Aurelius
