  1. I felt like smacking myself a few times listening to this.. so many truths and so many things need to be fixed in my life..
    I feel so lost and I’m kind of scared of where my life is going.. I’m 25, a university graduate but I’m without a job, I’m living in a 3rd world country with little hope to move to somewhere else, I’m in a relationship that i know deep down is not good for me in the long run..
    I honestly don’t know where to start or what to fix..

  2. Truth as a weapon I might be guilty of that one. Instead I should use it as knowledge and to act accordingly. Think one the most important things is to just do what is right, even when it sucks, u will always feel better about it long term.

  3. I'm sorry to criticize this video but there's too many words and a lot of meaningless ones. This man talks about idealism in his vision like if he's acting in this way then he will never have any obstacle.

    Life's not so simple as that unfortunately.

    1. Truth can sometimes be a double edged sword. For example, it's very useful for gain integrity, true but malevolent people can use it as weakness and tool for manipulating.
    2. I don't believe that love is one of the highest virtues because that very often leads people to make wrong decisions. When you start to love also you start to hate.
    3. When you avoid bitterness and always look upward. You can't have courage because you have fear. Learn to deal with bitterness is the best way to become stronger in my opinion.
    4. It's totally impossible to have reality on your side because life has a purpose only when it has something who is against your wishes. No conflict, no goal. Just a meaningless and empty life.

    OK, I stop but I can tell that he doesn't speak truth in everything. True wisdom is knowing how to adapt by various situations. The solution in one situation doesn't mean that it's effective on another one. We have a lot of left things to learn. Probably endless.

  4. Be careful with speaking the truth and things you know to be true. Currently, you can find yourself in difficult and dangerous situations by speaking the truth. Tread carefully…

  5. “Theres no path to truth. Truth is the path”.
    “If you regret, you are still ignorant”.
    “Love, hope, happiness, and bravery is what masters life”.

  6. While I was searching for this kind of video I was hoping for some positivity but when you get it by watching this video , you tend to not like the truth itself because your likes and fantasy and tendency has become so much blend with society as a whole that these truth has some resistance(large inductance) in inculcating inside ourselves.
    my QUESTION is while we overcome that resistance by developing another resistance to bad things and bad tendency, how can we make it easy for ourselves???????because it is very tough to overcome such temptations{society itself is saying is correct but actually it is wrong}.

  7. At 7:25 in the video there is a strange voice that to me sounds like it says "Hot" and possibly even "dammit" right after. Slow it down and check it out for yourself and please let me know if you are also hearing the same. Start a little before, say at about 7:20.

  8. Jordan seems like he is trying to convince himself that he is right about everything. I think he is a corny bater that can’t relate to the the average human condition of the new age.

  9. It's good to be as honest as we can. There's nothing worse than malicious lies. And the one who constantly tells white lies is fooling themselves more than others. But let's be honest, anyone who says they've never lied is not telling the truth.

  10. May we work each day to be a blessing to each other in humility and love. This channel has such great content. Thanks for all the work that goes into it.

  11. This is the reality of the life as described by Allah (God), Lord of the Worlds, Glory be to Him:
    "Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion."
    (Quran 57:20)
