“Conversations With God: An Uncommon Dialogue” by Neal Walsh is one of my favorite books of all time, hands down. It is written from the point of view of god (but it’s not religion, so don’t scoff quite yet) telling man how he should live his life. I like to think of it as god’s hypothetical edits to the incredibly skewed, modern interpretation of the ‘The Bible.’
Now that I’ve been practising Vipassana meditation for a few years, I’ve come to learn a few things. Like what people say when you mention a 10 day silent meditation course.. Not talk for 10 days, I could never do that!
Until now there has never been an available or reliable process that teaches an individual how to naturally release DMT from the brain. All previous methods were based on an intimate understanding of complex indigenous cultural beliefs that triggered emotional responses, which in turn released DMT in the brain. “A person of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting.” – Carlos Castaneda This is not an imaginary world where you live out imaginary lives.

School isn’t for everyone. There are just too many required classes that you must take in order to get to the stuff you actually want to learn. Plus the whole homework and testing system… I’ll just stop there. There are tons of ways to educate yourself quickly and for much less money than with a college education.
