In my experience a lot of people who caution you against fame or riches are those who secretly desire the same thing but don't want to do the work, so it is a subtle way of sabotaging you. They'll talk about ambition as if it's a terrible thing.
Yeah, this is also something to watch out for.

Re: Do you meditate?

I highly recommend the Sam Harris app. I don't know about Apple, but it's free on Google Play. https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... d&hl=en_US

Re: What about fame, glory, riches, etc?

This is a fair question, and of course I plan to address it in the materials when I get to those parts specifically. Indeed, Loricism is intended to start with the individual, and give them tools to clear away any self-induced obstacles for success (whatever that may be to them). For example, doubt ...

Re: Materials

Yeah, I'm working on two books currently, plus an online course for the Level 1 Cert. That'll be the only cert you can get online for the moment until I figure out how to test for competency with the subsequent materials. I may have to incorporate some kind of time element to it, like you have to sp...

Re: Loricism needs a book

I'm writing both at the same time, but I will likely be done with Wisings first. Initially they will be out in ebook and print formats. The audio will be later.

Re: How long should it take to learn these 12 virtues?

I have updated one of the definitions, because I discovered it was missing something vital. Instead of this: Discipline : Activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill or trait. I think it should be this: Discipline : Activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops, improves, or ...

Re: Loricism needs a book

Still working on it, actually. There are two different books in the works. One is called Wisings , which is a book of pithy essays on a bunch of topics so people can skip to the thing they want to know about. The other is tentatively called The Loric Way , which explains the basics of Loricism and h...

Re: Cultural appropriation

Be reasonable about it. What is the intention behind it? Are you being an asshole by doing the thing that means a lot to the other culture? Are you being an asshole by drawing a hard line in the sand with regards to something? Or can people of other cultures enjoy something? If you really want to go...

Re: What are your thoughts on etiquette?

Well, this is a good question. I think we're going to find ourselves facing more of these types of hypotheticals. If you glance at anything that advocates individual autonomy, it isn't long before people start to accuse it of being wholly selfish or libertarian, or whatever label they want to throw ...
