How to Raise the Spirit so the Mind is Free (an introduction)

This is not some hippy-dippy bullshit but one of the most powerful ways to increase your quality of life and become more attractive to women.

That’s what we are all here for, correct?

After the incredible response that came from the video of the Attractive Woman in the first throes of lust, I thought hard about the questions, reactions, and speculations that followed.

A lot of guys asked via email, on the forum, and in comments, things like:

“how did you get an attitude and mindset like that?”

“how did you develop your presence?”

“what did you do to become so comfortable with yourself?”

“how were you so in the moment with her?”

“you seem to be really in touch with yourself, don’t care what others think of it and really enjoy this short life we have.”

If there were only one, two maybe three of your best tips to help someone break free from the shackles of normalcy, what would they be?

I have been thinking about these responses a lot and have come to the conclusion that I must write a very well thought out and organized thesis on the subject.

I’ll be working hard on it for the next few months (in between writing the introduction to camera game book) and will have something special when it is complete.

For now, I’ll share some of the most important ways an independent male can help develop his mind into an unstoppable weapon.

1. Read. And read the good stuff. There are lists of books all over the internet, stick with the classics. Don’t just read blogs or articles online, get yourself a nice copy of a classic in paper and ink, sit down, concentrate, and fill your head with brilliance. When you read quality and fill your mind with the words of powerful men, you can detect what is true and what is bullshit. This is important because most of what you will find in this world is bullshit, hone your skills sooner than later.

2. Nature. Mother Nature is the best teacher a man could ever ask for. She will give you gifts that will open up your heart and mind and allow you to tap in to her power. I was lucky when I grew up and there was some deep forest just a 30 minute bike ride away. Even though I was a punk-rock loving skater kid, I retreated to that forest many many times to read, walk, and watch animals. My grandfather taught me how to track animals and pick up on their energy. You know that feeling you get when someone is staring at you? I can do that with birds. Animals have pure spirits, live completely in the moment, and go by instinct–these are traits that you want to develop. Learn from the Earth.

3. Art. Real art is not made by Namby-Pamby fags whose minds are addled with drugs. I’m surrounded by that shit because I live in Brooklyn. The things those weaklings produce is vomit from their damaged souls and will not do you any good. But real, powerful art can be a life changing experience. Go to a museum, and lose yourself in a sculpture or painting. Really let yourself go and see what you are drawn to. If you see a piece that interests you, figure out why. Stare at it until it becomes a part of you. Not only will you notice the beauty that real artistic accomplishment shows on the outside, but you will notice something about yourself that is all too real. Each man is different and each will have a different revelation. It is powerful stuff. Start with this book if you need guidance.

These three mediums are the best ways to begin. They are accessible, cheap, and enjoyable–there is no reason to say no.

I encourage you to start developing now. The longer you wait, the more ingrained your habits and way of thinking becomes. But you can always change for the better, do it sooner than later.

To get a good understanding of just how much these things have become a part of me, you can read about it and get a glimpse into my spirit by viewing the Montreal story.

Things like this happened:


My experience there was guided by all of these soul-builders and I’m proud of the words and photos that came out of it.

Also, my first book is going to be out in the next coming weeks. It is a documentation of a major turning point, the transformation of Goldmund if you will. I’m very proud and am just waiting on some formatting issues and technical things that need to be done. Be sure to check it out upon release.

It’s been a whirlwind of a ride so far, and I only plan on keeping up the momentum.



About Goldmund

Goldmund grew up a wild-child and was constantly being disciplined. Using ancient rituals and game, he broke free from the shackles of his mind and the norms of this backwards society. He frequents bars in Brooklyn, mountains in Mexico, and retreats to the desert. His passions are nature and women.
