10 Self-Improvement Tips for MGTOW

This topic comes from a donation request from Knight of Sunlight, and he wants to know my ten self-improvement tips for MGTOW men. Things will differ between men at different points in their lives and their different goals and ambitions, but these should be able to be applied to just about any path and definitely helped me.

1) Take baby steps. If you are just beginning your path of self-improvement or are getting back on the grind after a hiatus, be sure to avoid moving too fast or you’re going to end up quitting. It’s better to get comfortable in an easy routine and absolutely master it than it is taking on a bigger workload that you can’t handle and dropping all of it entirely. When I first started video editing, I didn’t sit and watch hours of tutorials, I got the basics and then started messing around with programs at a rate that was comfortable for me.

2) Setting short term goals. These are goals that can be completed in less than 3 months. They are valuable because they offer immediate feedback and easily reachable milestones that help you see the tangible products of your dedication. The workload will vary with each goal that you set for yourself, and putting too many of these on yourself will cause you to stress out, but they are a necessity. An example of a short term goal for me would be making a video or finishing a book.

3) Improve attention span. Technology has crippled our attention spans, and my attention span has been absolutely destroyed. To be able to focus on your short and long term goals, you need to take steps to improving your attention span. Reading, exercising, and meditating have helped me clear my mind and focus on the task at hand. If you can’t finish anything or you keep adding new goals before finishing your existing ones, your potential improvement is limited by the stimulus that detracts from your efforts.

4) Setting long term goals. These are goals that require more than three months to complete. You must have at least one of these, it’s a requirement to getting out of the depression and sitting in the void. If you don’t have something that you can work on when you get out of bed, you won’t want to get out of bed. I have more long term goals than I should have, but we’ll address that shortly. A long term goal for me would include my workout goals, my book, growing the channel, becoming a teacher, and developing the game. Some of these don’t have set deadlines, but all of them have milestones that can be objectively measured. These are tougher than short term goals because the measure of progress is more spread out over time, but the long term goals are what yield the consistency of productivity.

5) Push yourself outside of your comfort zone. Your goals should align to your strengths, but you should also be discovering your untapped strengths. These are best suited for short term goals, so you can quickly see growth and determine if you want to transition to a long term goal. The area where I’ve pushed myself the most would be the call-in shows I do on this channel, when I first started I had no idea what to expect and since I don’t put any restrictions on it, I have to be at least familiar with whatever topics people bring to discussions. I’m glad I pushed myself out of my comfort zone though, because it’s one of my favorite parts of the community.

6) Variety. Variety is the spice of life, and some spice is needed to make that bland dish of repetition and discipline bearable. Make sure you have goals of different types in place so you never dread the act of self-improvement. If I hit writer’s block for a video, I can work out and shift from a short term goal of making a video to the long term goal of reaching my workout goals. I would say have goals of any type, short term or long term, that appeal to the mind, the body, and the spirit.

7) Commit. If you absolutely have to drop a goal, then it should be a short term goal because that is the place to experiment and find out what you want to do. Any long term goal should have your full commitment, because if you drop it then you’ve lost all the time and momentum that your entire self-improvement system relies on. Once you start seeing progress and results, it should snowball into productivity as you get addicted to the gains.

8) Break and rebuild, push boundaries. Once you’ve moved past the baby steps portion of a goal, you should slowly be ramping up your workload to its maximum capacity, and when it becomes unstable, ease off and regroup and then continue again. The only way you can increase your workload and enhance your capabilities is to actually force yourself to adapt.

9) Time management. This is the one area where I am still working on, because my time management sucks. If you find yourself doing too much at once, you will be overwhelmed at the tasks for any given day and then decide to do less than necessary, or worse, nothing at all. Time is a trick thing for a MGTOW man. Now that you’re off the plantation, you have plenty of it. If you have too much, you become lazy and bitter because you’re not actively doing productive things. If you have too little time, you become just as stressed and overworked as the men on the plantation who are serving their masters at home. And that leads into‚Ķ

10) Balance. I believe in maintaining balance in all things, even in productivity. I still have unproductive hobbies, I still want to watch movies and tv shows and play video games and get into anime. Too much of that is detrimental to reaching your true potential, but you need some of that to let yourself relax and enjoy the freedom you’ve gained from finding MGTOW. After all, if I can’t kick back, relax, and enjoy being a hermit, what the hell is the point of all this anyways?

Your Efforts Are Wasted on Her

to snip or not to snip (15)

The amount of time you spend trying to court or convince a woman is a representation of how much you are still invested in obtaining female validation. Any effort spent trying to persuade a woman to a cause is a wasted effort because it isn’t dependent on your argument or presentation, but rather the options she has available to her at that present moment.

When attempting to court a woman, you are placing yourself into the arena alongside countless other suitors. Your ego convinces you that your competitive urges creates success and will not allow for the possibility of factors outside of your control dictating your results because it leaves you in a helpless state. Your ego protects you from the truth because it is a painful shock to the system that often jump starts men out of the matrix, forcing them to look at the objective sexual strategies women employ. You didn’t out perform all of the other suitors, you were merely her best option in that pool of men relative to her current standards. Realizing that takes away the pride and the sense of false accomplishment that allowed you to play the game with a smile on your face.

You humanize her in the courting process by trying to make a personal connection, by trying to appeal to as many different avenues as possible: compassion, comedy, attraction, provisioning, but in the end she’s merely categorizing all of your ploys into a large database in her head of all the other factors from all the other guys in a very practical way, and then her spontaneous feelings, the tingles, that factor that she can’t explain but is so easily deduced by red pill men, is thrown into the mix to muddy the results.

There are so many unaccountable factors present in the equation of courtship. Every woman is a slut if you catch her on the right day. Maybe she’s jealous of her friends and their relationships and is looking to hop on the cock carousel or lock down a boyfriend as soon as possible, maybe she’s had a breakup and is looking to get filled, maybe she had a conversation with her mother that same day and that influenced the interaction, maybe she recently binged romantic movies on Netflix because she has no hobbies, who knows what the hell is going on and it’s not your problem to try and figure that out. What those pick up artists and coaches don’t tell you is that it’s 50% game and 50% luck, but they don’t say that because they need you to believe that it’s entirely within your control, and for only two easy payments of $19.99 you can slay poon till your dick falls off.

Your efforts are also wasted when trying to convince a woman in an argument to see your logical progression of thought. You could have the most airtight argument, appealing to common sense and backed up by facts and data, but you aren’t accounting for the factor that throws everything out the window: her emotions. Many men argue using emotions, but most, not all, can be made to see reason when they see objective results. Women are entirely helpless in the face of objective reality because their emotions override any possibility of acceptance and concession. Admitting she was wrong makes her feel bad, and therefore will be avoided at all costs.

Not only are your efforts wasted, but your efforts will be pitted against other men. You will be competing to see who can waste the most effort, something no one should want to be the winner of. Instead, redirect that effort to yourself and to other men. Real men will notice your efforts and appreciate it, even some of the blue pill guys on the plantation who gained some wisdom through their misery.

All of this applies to women on the macro scale in each of our countries. Women will never listen to reason because they have so many other, better options available to them and different motives that aren’t compatible with not only the survival of their nations, but the expansion of them. Any appeals to logic will be met with a greater force of emotion, and emotion will win every time because it is the power that shapes their reality and the decisions they make. How can we navigate that besides focusing our efforts to appealing to their emotions and making the problem worse, wasting our efforts and any chance of fixing the problem?

Learn to refocus your efforts. You have an incredible advantage because so many other men are wasting their energy, while you have the freedom to focus on things that give real meaning, lasting fulfillment, and are completely in your control and not dependent on unknown variables.

There is no Right Girl, Unicorns Don’t Exist

Easily the biggest divide in the MGTOW community is the concept of All Women Are Like That. There are men who have accepted female nature in its totality and there are still a lot of men who believe that some women can overcome female nature. These men hold out hope that not all women can be as basic and superficial as the rest because it would simply be too depressing, a world without hope of progressing from the animal reproductive strategies that govern our species. Embracing that reality is exactly how you overcome that last barrier to reaching freedom from the mating game and female validation.

Believing that Not All Women Are Like That, or NAWALT, is the elevation of female nature to something it can never be. It is conflating it with male nature, where men can overcome their biology with intangible things like morality, pride, and discipline. Accepting that All Women Are Like That doesn’t mean that every woman is a cheating whore, it means that they have the capability of being one. It may seem obvious, but its powerful to admit that she is subject to flaws. Just like it’s drilled into every man that he has the potential to be a visious animal under certain circumstances, it’s equally applicable for women to engage in their hypergamous instincts under certain circumstances. Men often elevate women to be beyond the human flaws that everyone else has, and realizing that they’re as flawed, or more so, than the average man is the first step to accepting AWALT.

There are a couple scenarios that we see come up often in the community that try to prove NAWALT, but we’re going to debunk those today. The most common one is the belief that a Western man can travel abroad and find a woman from a poor country and rescue her from a life of poverty and create a family with her. There are two big flaws with this theory. The first is that you can certainly do that, but just because she comes from a traditional background doesn’t mean she isn’t still a woman. She will still have to deal with temptation when she encounters a man who is taller or wealthier or more muscular. She will still be tempted to monkey branch if you were to lose your job or fall ill or suffer an injury. She will still be naturally unattracted when you show any signs of weakness or vulnerability. She may not act on these hypergamous instincts, but they are still there regardless. The second flaw in this theory is that her femininity is defined by her community. If you go to a different country, her culture might shame promiscuity or adultery, so she may control it artificially to avoid being ostracized. If you bring her back to your home country, the worst traits of female nature will be unleashed on you.

She isn’t a unicorn, she just learned how to hide her true nature. Trying to cheat the system and work around biology is a clever way to try and solve the problem, but it doesn’t do anything except expose you to what every man who interacts with women will eventually encounter.

The next example of unicorn hunting comes with finding virgins. I have some personal experience with this and I’ll tell you that it really has no effect. If you find a virgin, a rare species in today’s society, it does help initially at the start of the relationship because of the stronger pair bonding mechanism that she has with you, but it isn’t strong enough to fight the constant, 24/7 barrage of sex and drugs and hookup culture that she is exposed to. Eventually she will become curious as to what she is missing out on, and there really isn’t anything you can do to stop that. No amount of game or passing shit tests will get the idea of the grass being greener out of her mind.

The most frustrating mistake of trying to prove Not All Women Are Like That is going for girls below your own sexual marketplace value. Logically, you would think that she would appreciate being with a higher quality partner and that would reflect in her attitude and treatment of you. Instead, what tends to happen is that she is conflicted between self-consciousness and anxiety as she thinks she is unworthy of you and that you will leave for a better woman as well as the ego boost that she can in fact land a higher quality partner than her sexual marketplace value should allow. One of those two scenarios will eventually end the relationship. Either her self-doubt will become unbearable and her paranoia will drive you away or she will act on her hypergamous instincts to try and monkey branch.

The split in the community really shows itself in the attitudes of the men. Most will claim all women are useless sluts, and others, mostly older guys, will claim that the majority of the women have ruined the gender relations for the minority of good women out there. There are good points in both arguments, as well as flaws, so we should try to bring them together into what really is the case for female nature. Most women are useless as the more vocal crowd says, but not all. But this also is not an admission that those few who aren’t completely useless are in any way as useful as a man. The older guys who believe that there are some good women left hiding under a rock, waiting to be found fail to understand that these women are chameleons, blending in to the conservative parts of the country or hiding their histories from the men they interact with. These wholesome women will easily throw that supposed purity aside for a chance at a man with a high SMV.

Even if you were to find a woman from a stable household that has stable friends and is sheltered from the cancerous culture and has positive influences in life, you still have to deal with shit tests and all the drama that comes with it. Just because she may not be promiscious, she still is subconsiouly searching for the best mate, so you have to constantly prove yourself to her. She will never love you for who you are, only for what you can do for her. That doesn’t sound like a unicorn to me.

There is no right girl for you. You will always be fighting with her instincts, because Mother Nature is ruthless and unforgiving. You may be able to override your biological urges to mate with multiple women and instead create an emotional connection with one woman, but that isn’t how nature designed us. You can overcome that instinct because you can access something within yourself, a desire to change the rules that nature bestowed upon you, but you can’t expect her to do the same.

Once you accept that there are no unicorns, there is no woman out there waiting for you to find her, you can start to move forward as a MGTOW. You may face a crippling depression, or an uncontrollable rage, as your purpose and hope for settling down is crushed. We will continue to explore what comes after that realization on this channel, but just know that there is a purpose beyond reproduction. The difference is that you have to create it for yourself, it isn’t given to you. That’s for each of you to figure out on your own, but the fact that you’re entertaining the idea of life beyond a wife or have already come to that conclusion puts you ahead of literally billions of people.

The test for how committed you are to your individuality and freedom is to think of what you would do if you lived in a different time. If you lived in the 40s or 50s, would you still be MGTOW? If you go further back in time when gender relations were traditional, would you still go your own way? Or are you just MGTOW because of how bad things are? If you use MGTOW as a reaction, you can still reap many of the rewards that the philosophy gives, but you’ll always have that yearning for times past and the sadness and anger that comes with looking at what we have today. If you reach the place where you understand that you would always be MGTOW because female nature is universal, you can begin to reach the peace of mind that this channel was designed to spread.

Solitude is not Loneliness

MGTOW is not MRA (3)

The difference between solitude and loneliness is your state of mind. If you value peace and quiet, you can enjoy your own company as you pursue your own interests. If you value how others perceive you, you will see your isolation as a curse. The mind determines if the isolation is a positive experience of self-reflection or if it is a damaging trial of patience and yearning for human contact.

Reshaping the state of mind is the only thing that you should be focusing on if you need to leave loneliness behind and move to solitude. There are no tricks or life hacks to get over this hurdle, and you cannot face this problem on any other plane than within your mind. Working out in isolation and building your body will not bring the fulfillment it can truly offer until you deal with this, focusing on your hobbies or expanding your mind or growing spiritually does not change the fact that the root of the problem is in your perception of reality.

“Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a god.”

The wild beasts enjoy their own company, but they can’t explain why. They follow their basic feelings, and these feelings show them that they are most comfortable and productive in solitude. The Gods of Men found their place in solitude through rigorous introspection and determined that the tribe was only holding them back from what they truly desired. Both the wild beast and the God found peace of mind, but the foundations of the beast are weaker than the God’s.

Facing these ideas and honestly looking at your dependence on external validation is required for you to never be lonely again. While this is dealt with in your mind, your physical surroundings influence your perception of reality. If you are in a restaurant alone, are you insecure and lonely as couples and families enjoy a meal around you, or are you content with the meal prepared for you? If you see a couple walking towards you on the street, do you feel pangs of jealousy at their companionship, or are you savoring your freedom?

Once you enter solitude, it is an eternal state. You may enjoy the company of friends, or the loyalty of a dog, or the companionship of a girlfriend or casual relationship, but these relationships should not change your independence from external validation. The friends will go their separate ways, the dog will die, the woman will leave or force you to leave to preserve your freedom, you cannot become dependent on these things because they are temporary, whereas your solitude is with you until your final day.

The act of solitude is practiced every waking moment, no matter your surroundings. Being surrounded by people at your workplace, at your school, in your community, you are always on your own path, separate from the tribe. Solitude is not just the physical practice of isolation, it is a mental separation from what ties everyone else to the rat race. It is freeing yourself of the cycle so that you can enjoy the short amount of time you have left and to explore things at your own pace.

When you begin to feel pain from your isolation, when you feel a yearning for something that you don’t have, then you are lonely. Your loneliness can only be cured by another person or thing, so you are dependent on something outside of your control and require external validation. This removes all of your power because you have to play by someone else’s rules and are operating within nature’s boundaries. If you are curing your loneliness with a woman, you have to do what she says because you need her more than she needs you. She can find another partner because you are expendable and a utility, but you have placed your dependence on her shoulders, and leaving the relationship would leave you in a state of loneliness and agony. And so men put up with things any sane man in solitude would laugh at.

You can still enjoy company and love those close to you, but nature will remove them eventually. Being dependent on their existence allows nature to dictate your state of mind and your actions. The act of detaching yourself from the physical realm is a long journey, but essential to reaching solitude.

Even more difficult is detaching yourself from your own thoughts. The ego you have built with your mind was built with the ideas of external validation. Letting go of ideas and allowing your mind to move beyond the walls you have placed in your own path requires isolation and meditation, but once you have achieved this, you are closer to reaching solitude than the overwhelming majority of all humans that ever lived.

There are many milestones that you may encounter than can be indicators of where you are on your path to reaching solitude and escaping loneliness. Operating in the physical realm with no self-doubt, drifting through social situations with the grace of the wind and not being disturbed by people’s perceptions and judgments of your path are all signs that you are leaving the realm that everyone else operates within and are moving on to something greater.

Being able to entertain ideas that not only hurt, but absolutely destroy the ego as it was made before your journey to solitude is essential. When you can acknowledge your own faults and see how every action you took was in the pursuit of someone else’s path, you can begin to lay the stones on your path and learn to walk for the first time.

When you can accept criticism and remain steadfast, you have entered the impenetrable fortress of solitude. Simply ignoring what people may say is not enough, you have to honestly consider where they are coming from. If you ignore and shun them, you are afraid at the damage it might do to the ego you are reshaping. If you accept their perspective, which is tied to external validation, and compare it to your independence from their validation, it will bounce right off as you continue about your purpose. If it does not, then it just shows that you still have work to do, which is a blessing in itself. You need to constantly test your boundaries so you know that you are truly protected in your solitude.

Don’t feel pressured if your path takes longer than you thought. It took me a long time to overcome ideas of loneliness and to accept solitude, but yours may be longer. No matter where your path takes you, as long as you remain on the path, you can never be truly lost.

See One, See All

“See one promontory, one mountain, one sea, one river and see all.”
– Socrates

Individuality is not natural, it is created by those seeking to know themselves. When you hear the mainstream idiom that “everyone is special”, know that this stems from the false gynocentric care-based system women operate on, where they would rather fill people’s heads with empty platitudes of friendship and harmony than face the hard truths that one must create their uniqueness, it is not simply given by virtue of existence.

Nature designed organisms to act in a cohesive, collective and predictable way to ensure survival. Freedom is antithetical to natural selection. If an organism acted in its own interests, not on its biological urges, then that organism could fail to fulfill nature’s plans for it, instead enjoying its life the way it wants to. Having the freedom to fail makes a person responsible for their actions, which in turn shifts them away from the collective. Failure in the eyes of society and nature is entirely subjective. Some of the greatest men of humanity did not pass on their genes or get bogged down by marriage. If the choice is to fall in line and be grinded through the gears that nature created to keep the machine of life running or to step aside and enjoy the fruits that the machine has reaped, it really isn’t a choice for me at all.
Women operate identically because their reproductive strategy works. It is such an effective method of acquiring resources that no revision has been necessary for thousands of years. The reproductive strategy is universal and transcends language, culture, countries, and time itself. A woman today could go to the library and read about a woman’s mating story from centuries ago and relate perfectly. As Darwin explained, adaptation occurs across generations, not instantaneously. The woman who have hit the wall and adopted the life of cats and wine will suffer from eternal loneliness, but the women of tomorrow will be faced with the first test of adaptation for their reproductive strategy on a global scale. Will they try to control their hypergamous instincts and date down, or would they rather wither away as their looks fade, just as the women before them did?

If you have come to terms with the principles of game and the nature of women, you understand all women. The only variables you have to contend with are the levels of craziness and if she had a masculine father in her life. Even then, these things don’t negate any of the negative aspects of femininity. Plenty of girls were raised in conservative, religious households only to become sluttier than the whores their preachers warned them of. Even if a woman appears to be less crazy than others you may have encountered, her instability is still greater than almost any man you will meet, and definitely far greater than yours.

Once you meet a simp or a cuck, you have met all simps and cucks. They operate in easily recognizable patterns because they desire the same things. Their entire reality revolves around women, making them easy to control and predict. The peculiar thing is that this is not an effective reproductive strategy, and yet they continue to waste away practicing the art of cuckery. I can think of two explanations for their less than optimal way of chasing women. Either they have been brainwashed to such a degree that objective reality no longer has any bearing on their decisions, or it is simply natural selection at work, weeding out the men too stupid to think for themselves. I’m conflicted because the brainwashing men are exposed to today is unprecedented, but there are also plenty of examples of simps in ancient history, despite their cultures being masculine and patriarchal.

This familiarity of the simp and the woman cannot be conflated with a MGTOW. Reflect on how you have preconceived ideas of a simp and a woman, but MGTOW is strangely absent from your brains’ attempts at categorization. MGTOW are unpredictable and varied. A MGTOW could be a liberal or a conservative, a nerd or a jock, rich or poor, charismatic or shy, or all of the above simultaneously. If you meet one MGTOW, you have met one MGTOW, not a representation of all free men.

I have found that most people display their individuality in their hobbies. If you get a beta to talk about his interests, you can see a spark of a soul, a desire deep within the abyss of his heart that yearns for the freedom to pursue the knowledge it craves. You can see the life return to his eyes when he can envision possibility again, something he had surrendered, along his soul, in the pursuit of pussy. It is equally crushing to watch that spark fade as his focus returns to plantation. Every free man must turn that spark into a fire, and keep the fire burning for as long as he lives.

Quest for Freedom (Part 2): Anger and Control

The red pill rage that consumes you after seeing the truth has to be controlled, otherwise you will lose yourself in the endless pit of hatred because there is never an end to things that create hate. Make no mistake, the rage is useful, but you must direct it and you must have full control of it, otherwise you will be controlled by it.

Hating something doesn’t change it. Hating something is the manifestation of your desire to change it. If you hate what society has become, you are still investing time and energy in to it by thinking about it and worrying about what will happen. If you hate women, that doesn’t change the reality of female nature. You want it to be different, but it can’t be. Hating white knights doesn’t change their pathetic behaviors, it enforces it.

It is important that the problems of society, women and white knights are addressed, and ridicule is a part of that because there’s nothing we can do to change those problems, it is an admission of the futility of it. Your anger is created from the vision you had and the reality you face. You were told one thing and it turned out to be something else entirely. This starts with women, but the red pill has now been attributed to seeing any truth that you did not before.

The rage can consume you into a comatose state. Instead, redirect that desire for change into yourself. Having an outlet to vent is important for getting over the initial stages of rage, that’s why you see a lot of the forums in the manosphere being critical and redundant. Being able to channel all that energy can create productivity and the change you want to see. Negative energy is still energy, so put it to use.

Eventually you will be able to let go of the rage and reach acceptance and peace, but you might find complete detachment to be a bit too passive and unproductive. Instead, consider changing the nature of your emotions, the cause for them and their application. Try reducing your anger to a primal rage, free of a cause from a person or an event in your life, just the raw energy that can be used to build yourself with.

“Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.”

This is one of my favorite quotes, I have it taped to my wall and I look at it whenever I reach a plateau in whatever field I’m trying to make progress in. Learning to appreciate the journey and the struggles that come with it doesn’t mean you have to let go of basic emotions, you just have to temper them.

I’m a skinny guy, and my best work outs are when I channel that primal rage. It doesn’t come from wanting to be bigger or being able to lift more or what I will look like or what I want to look like, it comes from the simple fact that I have decided that the weight must be lifted and that it will be lifted, regardless of any emotions or excuses. A basic, primal rage that the immovable must be moved and it is inevitable that it will be, no matter the pain or aversion to it.

When I make these videos or write for my website, I channel that primal rage. I’m past the red pill rage and the depression that comes after it, but so many men are not. MGTOW saves lives, and my life was saved, but others are still in need of what MGTOW can give. I have peace of mind, but others do not. The desire to change that is redirected into the videos and essays, the primal rage that can take form into something productive and tangible.

You have many outlets to channel that primal rage, your body being one of the most important. Build yourself and suffer doing it as a release for the anger because having it build up and poison your soul will do nothing for you. As you build your body, build your mind. Read everyday, even if only for 20 minutes, away from the computer with a real book. As you begin to build and expand, you will see that the rage helps you focus, it creates a tunnel vision for whatever you direct it towards.

This is an incredibly useful tool, but it is incredibly dangerous. Having that tunnel vision can block your awareness, so the meditation you will practice will create a balance, allowing you to look objectively at what you are creating, what you are aspiring to and where your thoughts linger.

There are plenty of ways to meditate, and I’m still experimenting so I’ll just share the two that have worked best for me. Sit cross-legged and rest your hands on your knees like the stereotypical image of a monk meditating. Be sure your back is straight and keep it that way because you will likely slouch as you meditate. The first method is to think of nothing and focus on breathing calmly. Don’t try to force thoughts out of your head, instead entertain them and see where they go. Think of it as emptying your browser history or taking out the trash, you are just letting your mind wander until it clears itself of thoughts and focuses on your breathing patterns. Do this until you are only thinking about your breathing. The next time you do this it will take a little shorter to reach the calm, focused state, and every time after you will reach the state quicker.

The second method is to envision a peaceful image in your head. I have two: the first is a blank sheet of white paper, the second is a lake in the middle of a forest surrounded by trees. The trees are all still and nothing is moving in either scene. Once you have your image established, change it in a small way. For the page, it is an ink drop, and I envision how the ink spreads on the blank piece of paper. For the lake, it is a drop of water that falls into the center and sends ripples throughout the water. Envision the change to its completion and then return to the peaceful image where you began.

These are just two methods I have used, there are plenty out there for you to discover or create for yourself. It is important to do this because if you learn to channel and unleash that primal rage, it will consume you in whatever outlet you direct it towards. That tunnel vision isn’t always beneficial. As an example, the last semester of college I was taking 5 courses at a college that was an hour away while working full-time 40 hours a week. The tunnel vision helped me establish a routine and focus, but I wasn’t happy and it wasn’t fun. Now my schedule is much better while still being efficient after I had a long meditation and looked at what I was doing objectively.

Think of the primal rage as a horse. Unrestrained, it is wild, dangerous and hard to tame. Once tamed, it can take you where you need to go through any weather, any battle, with any amount of baggage you might bring along. It is dependable and docile, needing a good rider to direct it and use it to its full capability.

Reading required books like “The Rational Male” or listening to the great MGTOW channels might fuel the fire of that anger inside you, but that anger doesn’t just have to sit there and take up space. Put it to use, harness it and make it work for you.

The focus you will get and the success from it will naturally attract women, combined with the improved body and mind. If you let them derail your quest for freedom, you will lose all the progress you have made.

Quest For Freedom Part 1: The End of the Beginning

This series is designed for men new to MGTOW or who may need to reexamine the basic principles of the philosophy.

You have entered the MGTOW community because you felt something was wrong, something about the world around you and the way people interacted with it felt predetermined, almost mechanical. You observed men go through pain and loss at the hands of those they loved the most, but you pushed it out of your mind until one day it happened to you. What you thought could never happen under your roof has now set your house on fire, and as you try your best to douse the fire and preserve the things that are most precious to you from the flames, you risk losing yourself in the inferno. MGTOW is about letting that house burn, and finding peace in the detachment from everything the house means to you.

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” – Winston Churchill

There are many fundamentals of MGTOW that you will have to come to terms with, but for now accept that the time of servitude and dissatisfaction is over. Never again will you sacrifice time or happiness to build and maintain that house which became your prison. The dreams you had as a child, the ones that you gave up for a normal life with a normal wife, are now back on the table. That trip you wanted to take is now within reach. Sleeping in and relaxing won’t seem like such a crime anymore, and you may find yourself spontaneously doing things you would have to plan in advance before. These are just a few examples of what your new beginning can look like.

As you begin to move forward in your quest for freedom, don’t look at your past with anger or sadness. Cherish it because it led you to the freedom that you now are able to enjoy everyday. No amount of pain is greater than freedom. It isn’t wasted time, your path was just a longer one than other MGTOW men. This should help you in the long run by creating a strong aversion to ever even entertaining the idea of returning to that house, to the plantation where you toiled away for scraps of affection and accomplishment.

To fully burn that house down, we need to accept and internalize the concept of AWALT, or all women are like that, as well as being realistic with our expectations and desires in life. For now, just cherish the basic and tangible realities of your freedom. Take the time to enjoy the little things, the things that you kept from yourself in the past. As you continue to swallow red pills and begin to see the world that was hidden from you, it is important to establish a clear and defined vision of what you want for yourself and how you want your life to look like with your new outlook. The last thing you want is to wither away in a life of hedonism, living day to day and pursuing pleasures that never last.

Meditation is one of the many topics we’ll be thinking about later, but for now you should just think in general concepts, analyzing and getting specific can come later. Write your goals on a piece of paper if you need a tangible item to refer back to.

Is money important to you? If you don’t have children, you only need to support yourself now that the concept of the home and all its trappings have been removed from your desires. Now that you’re past attracting women, do you really want the things that you wanted before? Consider if you really wanted that nice car or if you just wanted it as a status symbol. You don’t need status if you have no need for what it brings to your life.

If you’re a younger MGTOW, maybe money is important to you because you want to retire early. If you live frugally, you should be able to take care of yourself, far better than men at the plantation can. Do you want to sacrifice your time and your body for money? A short term sacrifice may be beneficial for your long term goals, only you can decide where your path takes you.

Maybe traveling is a bigger priority, which requires a substantial amount of money to do it right. When I’m older, I will sail around the world. I don’t want to do this before 50, so I have plenty of time to stockpile money and enjoy youth. If you’re older and on a different path, you may have to make some sacrifices in other areas to make it work.

The important part of this exercise is to visualize your endgame. You need to find happiness and practice leisure every day, but you should always have short and long term goals to work towards. The pace at which you work towards them can now be altered because you don’t have a parasite feeding off of you or others depending on you, but you should still keep that drive and ambition alive. My endgame is retiring in a cabin by a lake. I love writing, so I want to have at least one book published. Living a MGTOW lifestyle, those two goals, which in another man’s life may seem like unattainable dreams, are now well within my grasp and realistic. With an endgame established, everything else is simply icing on the cake. Cars, trips, clothes, and all of the material benefits of going MGTOW, should be made secondary because you need to find peace without them. Once you do that, you’ll be able to appreciate them even more because you will realize that they are truly expendable. This detachment can be best explained with the story of the monk and the tea cup.

A monk drank his tea from the same cup every morning. One day, someone knocks the cup over, breaking it. Surprised at the monk’s calm reaction, the person asked the monk why he wasn’t upset. He claimed that the cup was already broken, and that he savored each moment with it because he knew eventually it would come to an end. If you can apply this to not only material objects, but people and experiences, you can accelerate the process of finding peace with yourself and the world around you.

If you choose to interact with women after going MGTOW, it is vital to have this mentality. Whatever relationship you find yourself in will never result in marriage or cohabitation, so it will reach its conclusion faster. We will look at the advantages and disadvantages of pump and dump versus monk mode, but for now try and incorporate this mentality where you can in your life. Some things will last longer than others, like a real friendship with a real man, and those lasting things should be valued and cherished, but don’t mourn their passing because there are always new experiences to be had.

Before MGTOW, you held on to things with a scarcity mentality, and in turn this dependence left you in a powerless state. Going MGTOW doesn’t automatically make you a powerful and accomplished man, but it does set you on the course to become it. The journey never ends, even after your death, because what you accomplish and create now can inspire and invigorate men after you have passed.

The main takeaway from this video should be the creation of a real, tangible plan for yourself. Don’t feel ashamed if your plan seems simple, not every man desires wealth. Remove everyone and everything from the equation and see what you’re left with, that will give you a good place to start. People say it’s not good to talk about your plans with other people before completing it, but I disagree. It’s not good to talk to people who would take pleasure seeing you fail, but sharing your thoughts with like-minded men in our community is an excellent way to get feedback and new ideas, so I’ve put my email in the description of this video, otherwise I encourage you to share in the comments.

MGTOW of History: Miyamoto Musashi

While the acronym of MGTOW and its many ideas began to gain traction in the last decade, the underlying principles of cultivating individuality and masculinity can be traced to all corners of the world throughout history. I’ve sampled many texts and quotes from men in other videos, but for men who embodied the meaning of the philosophy we share I will make dedicated historical videos.

Miyamoto Musashi was one such man. Details are scarce about him, but the details we do know about him should be given considerable thought and reflection. Musashi was an undefeated dueler, a master-less samurai, and an independent teacher. He was born in Japan around 1584 during a period of turmoil as the country found itself in a civil war as the Japanese warlords fought for territory. He was born into a samurai family and trained by his father, who was an accomplished swordsman. His mother died soon after his birth, and he was raised by his step-mother. After his father divorced the step-mother, Musashi, at the age of seven, was sent to live with his uncle, who was a Buddhist monk, in a Buddhist temple. There he learned Zen Buddhism, reading and writing. The details are scarce, but at 9 or 10 his father died or completely abandoned the young Musashi. At 13 he had his first duel, killing a man seconds after the fight began with a wooden sword. Between 16 to 20 years of age, he left the temple and wandered to hone his skills and become Japan’s greatest swordsman.

His dueling exploits are fascinating and inspiring to see the raw determination manifested into his physical form, but this video will be focusing on the philosophy he developed over his lifetime and shared in his two works: the Gorin-No-Sho, or the Book of Five Rings, and the Dokkodo, or “The Way of Walking Alone”.

My translation of the Book of Five Rings is from Thomas Cleary. If you find a different translation it may differ slightly, but the overall message of the work is universal. Musashi wrote this so the common man could read and understand it, unlike other swordsmen who believed making their writings as esoteric as possible kept them in the exclusive military caste of Japanese society.

 

The patterns of human nature allow for observant minds to reliably predict how people will act. The MGTOW concepts of “All Women Are Like That” and the behaviors of white knights and blue pill men are the application of biological instincts in social situations. The majority of all people are slaves to their desires or their duties and can be controlled through these chains. The application of basic principles is a proactive measure to ensure you are always prepared for any situation. Don’t be afraid to use these principles because they exist for a reason.

 

You must strive to attain purity in your life, in all aspects. If you find yourself doing things you don’t want to do, you must work everyday to free yourself from these burdens in your life. You may have to work a job you dislike to provide for yourself, but you should be taking steps to get yourself into a better situation in the future. Even if you have a good work life balance and pursue your own goals in your free time, there is still that presence of dissatisfaction when you are forced to face what takes you from your path.

 

The MGTOW Way is Your Way. Even if your way is comparable to my way, there will always be small differences that would make it unappealing to you. MGTOW isn’t one size fits all, you have to tune and tweak the philosophy to fit your life, and that’s the first step to truly going your own way. Instead of blinding following someone else’s life path, you have to take charge and compare your own goals and desires with the knowledge you get from the MGTOW community. As Musashi says, if you have the knowledge, you can see it everywhere around you. MGTOW are everywhere, you probably met some men who live the lifestyle and haven’t found the community yet. Just because they are on different paths doesn’t mean you can’t learn from them.

 
1. “Think of what is right and true.”
Your ideals will not always line up with reality. Allowing your ideals to interfere with objective reality, what is true right before your eyes, is what blinded you before finding MGTOW. Always keep your ideals in mind, but don’t let them have power over you as they once did. Adapt and grow, but always keep the truth in front of you.

2. “Practice and cultivate the science.”
In the case of Musashi, his was military science. Whatever your craft is, practice it everyday and become an expert in it. If you are free of the burdens of marriage and children, you should put that energy and resources saved to good use.

3. “Become acquainted with the arts.”
Take your craft and become obsessed with it. Direct that energy you gave to pursuing the interests of other people and channel it into yourself. Learn the inner workings of every facet of what you truly want to do with your life, and if you haven’t found it yet, dedicate yourself to finding it.

4. “Know the principles of the crafts.”
You have to learn the ‘how’ of your craft, but to have true mastery of anything you must learn the ‘why’. Principles and ideals guide every decision, to learn these guides you must learn your own. Once you have mastered this through mediation and reflection, you can navigate your field at a level reserved only for the most dedicated of men.

5. “Understand the harm and benefit in everything.”
Going MGTOW without fully understanding the power of it can do more harm than good. If you find yourself in the red pill rage phase, you can put yourself in a dark place. Every situation you find yourself in with women or blue pill men can be harmful or beneficial. You may need more experience with women to fully understand and accept the ideas you have learned about, which can be beneficial to you by finally letting go of what you were raised to believe, or harmful in that you put yourself at risk in this time of mass moral panic.

6. “Learn to see everything accurately.”
Looking at life with the MGTOW perspective in mind can be difficult at first, but it is necessary to apply it equally to everything so that you are always looking at things honestly and accurately.

7. “Become aware of what is not obvious.”
There is truth hidden from you in every corner of the world, and it’s up to you to find it. Lies are easy to produce and profitable for the schemer.

8. “Be careful even in small matters.”
If you know the principles but fail to apply them in everyday life, you really didn’t know the principles at all. It’s the small matters that matter the most, they prepare you for those momentous occasions where everything you’ve learned will be applied.

9. “Do not do anything useless.”
A life of hedonism does not bring fulfillment. Mastery and creation bring peace and satisfaction. Pursue goals that can be worked on over long periods of time and avoid instant gratification. Let the mindless hordes numb themselves and rot their brains while you build your reality instead of having it given to you.

Your mind governs your actions. Before you can get your body and your craft in order, you must calm your mind. This is why men become addicted to consuming MGTOW, their minds are being reshaped and they cannot find a place to settle mentally. This inner turmoil is as necessary as the chaotic shaping of the Earth, but it can’t last forever. Practice meditation and get yourself into a productive and positive state of mind or you will be crippled as your mind stretches into all directions.

There is no reason to rush anymore now that you are on your own path. You have freed yourself from the rat race, now you can take the time to do what you want to do and to do it right, with all of your effort. Now you can stop to smell the flowers and enjoy the brief amount of time we are given. As long as you keep improving and avoid stagnating with the freedom you’ve taken for yourself, you can master your path.

 

After he fell ill, Musashi retreated to a cave and wrote The Book of Five Rings, which is considered his greatest work, but his final work is more applicable to MGTOW. This short guide for his lifestyle was meant to teach future generations the self-disciple required to achieve greatness. He completed the Dokkodo, or “The Way of Walking Alone” in the cave a week before his death in 1645.

Read the 21 precepts of Dokkodo:

1. “Accept everything just the way it is.”
As I said in the second part of my video series Quest for Freedom, anger and frustration comes from the desire to change things. Once you accept human nature, you can begin to let go of the disappointment you feel at the underwhelming efforts of the majority and begin to create the image of what you want to see from the world in yourself.

2. “Do not seek pleasure for its own sake.”
Hedonism leads nowhere. A hedonistic population is a reliable indictator for a soon-to-be extinct population, as evidenced in ancient China, the Roman Empire, and now modern Western society. Hedonism can never be completed, it is an endless pit like depression and lust that will consume you if you let it.

3. “Do not, under any circumstances, depend on a partial feeling.”
Always follow your gut instinct no matter what. You were biologically hardwired with instincts that can only be overridden with artificial ideas supplanted on to you by your surroundings. If you act on feelings that aren’t what you truly desire, then you will act from a position of weakness. Always operate from a position of strength.

4. “Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.”
Your ego is as much an obstacle to your path as women are. Humble yourself so that you can learn from your mistakes and grow. The world and all its offerings have been here long before you and will be here long after you. You are merely a visitor, so learn as much as you can while you are passing through.

5. “Be detached from desire your whole life long.”
You can pursue things of interest, but you must do so from a position of being independent from the outcome. If you were to put all your metaphorical eggs in one basket, it would lead to disappointment and even ruin. Remain free from desires by having an abundance mentality. Set your goals and work towards them, but realize that you may not achieve them or that you may succeed and find yourself lacking a purpose.

6. “Do not regret what you have done.”
Whatever mistakes you made that led you to MGTOW were simply educational lessons on your unique path to freedom. If you relapse and make a mistake even after learning and listening, don’t beat yourself up or you’ll just repeat it again. Learn from the experience and move forward.

7. “Never be jealous.”
Once you have enjoyed the freedom and peace of mind from external validation, its hard to feel jealousy for the men still on the plantation. You may, however, feel jealousy for the easy life women appear to have. Never be jealous of women, because they live a tortured existence of hatred and jealousy, there’s no reason to step into that arena.

8. “Never let yourself be saddened by a separation.”
In the first part of my video series Quest for Freedom, I spoke of the story of the monk and the tea cup. If you cherish every interaction with someone and look at it from an honest perspective, you won’t mourn its absence in the future. Being attached to things or people can only bring sadness because nothing is eternal. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy their company, but it does mean that you should remain pragmatic.

9. “Resentment and complaint are appropriate neither for oneself or others.”
I struggled with this when I was a teen, and found myself complaining all the time about everything. Doing this automatically puts you in a negative state of mind and prevents you from seeing and accepting the truths in your environment. We can complain about women or the state of gender relations as much as we want, it won’t change it and it will only put you in a bad mood.

10. “Do not let yourself be guided by the feeling of lust or love.”
An obvious tip to us now, but imagine how world shattering this single sentence is to a man on the plantation. If you give women the means to control you, why are you surprised when they utilize the tools at their disposal? Give them no power over you and you will be untouchable.

11. “In all things have no preferences.”
Men are creatures of adaptation, and learning to go with the flow and roll with the punches is a trait that will help you on your path. If you are unable to operate without your desired preferences in a situation, you were not prepared for that situation. Be prepared for all situations.

12. “Be indifferent to where you live.”
I touched on this briefly in my tips for young MGTOW video, but you should learn to live with less so that you can become mobile. If a place as an internet connection and a desk for my computer, I am happy. If it doesn’t, I can make do without it and survive until I can find a place that does have it. As the world continues in its decline, younger MGTOW may also have to move out of their native countries to thrive or to avoid a draft for a future war.

13. “Do not pursue the taste of good food.”
I’ve struggled with this rule this year because a bunch of fast food chains have opened right outside of my house, and usually I don’t partake in fast food that often. I realized it was a problem early on and I’m cutting it off and returning to my original concept of food. I always saw food as a means to an end, a form of energy to vitalize me throughout the day. Meat, bread, fish, water, fruits and vegetables. Sure, it may get bland over time but its just a way to give me energy, nothing more.

14. “Do not hold on to possessions you no longer need.”
Sentimentality for possessions is a natural response, a transference of emotion to an inanimate object. This is for the hardcore monks out there, but for MGTOW this can relate to those of you still holding on to possessions from an ex girlfriend or an ex wife. Let it go and move on, you don’t need it anymore. Your memories may fade and the image of her in your head may become distorted, but the pain you felt will always be remembered, you don’t need possessions to remind you of that.

15. “Do not act following customary beliefs.”
If you did what society expected of you, you would be slaving away at a job you hate for a woman that doesn’t love you. If you followed the sheep, you would be unable to see the cliff the herd is approaching. Customs and beliefs are designed to guide large groups of people. They are incompatible with your individual path.

16. “Do not collect weapons or practice with weapons beyond what is useful.”
Becoming attached to ideas that aren’t practical can’t help you on your path. Removing women’s rights is a possible solution to saving the West, but it is in no way shape or form practical and will probably never happen. Entertaining the idea is a good mental exercise, but it won’t help you reach peace or fulfillment.

17. “Do not fear death.”
You are a dead man walking. The sooner you come to terms with this the sooner you can get to work and make something of yourself. Meaning is not given to you, you have to create it for yourself.

18. “Do not seek to possess either goods or fiefs for your old age.”
You can’t take wealth with you after death and you don’t know when death will visit you. It’s good to plan for retirement, but it shouldn’t be your main motivator like the rest of the people slaving away and giving away their best years so they can watch television in a nursing home.

19. “Respect Buddha and the gods without counting on their help.”
I’m not religious and the universe doesn’t owe me anything, but if you are religious, wouldn’t you want to succeed on your own merit, without the aid of your religion? To become fully independent is to walk your path with your own two feet, with your own will guiding you.

20. “You may abandon your own body but you must preserve your honor.”
Once you have become detached from results, desires, people, and life itself, you can prioritize your ideals from a position of clarity, instead of blind allegiance to them. Your definition of honor is not what society’s definition of honor is. Whatever your definition is, safeguard it from those who would see it corrupted.

21. “Never stray from the Way.”
Once you have defined your path, be honest to yourself and pursue it with the effort it deserves. Your path may shift and change as time progresses, but its core principles should remain the same. Most people never find the path and stumble through life in darkness, but you are one of the lucky ones who have found it and can articulate it. To discover the path and walk away from it is the greatest insult you could make against yourself.

MGTOW is the Ultimate Investment

“An Investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin

Investing in yourself is always the best option. You may not be the most reliable to yourself right now, you might struggle with procrastination or laziness, but you know that you can change your bad habits if you work at it. That’s more of a guarantee than the majority of people can give you, so betting on yourself is always the safest bet.

You know what you are capable of today, but what you will be capable of tomorrow can only be known if you give yourself a chance to find out. You are your own worst enemy, and if you allow your negativity to govern your actions, then you will be led in to dead ends and wind up right where you started before finding MGTOW: frustrated and tired. The knowledge is meant to liberate you from a life of servitude, not enslave you to a dream of something that could never be.

Look at what men tied down by women are capable of. They sacrifice their health and their happiness, but they can still accomplish great things. Without these restrictions, you should be living life on easy mode and building yourself in all areas.

Let’s look at how useful the MGTOW knowledge would be in other areas of investment to give you an idea of how far ahead you are with the knowledge you have and the potential if you apply it.

Financial investment is the big one that most guys get trapped within. Most men are focused on their careers and making money. The men who are skilled at making money naturally attract the worst kinds of women. If they knew about AWALT, they could have made enough to live comfortably or really put in the effort to make a lot and then retire early. Instead, they eventually become slaves to their job in an effort to continue providing a standard of living for a woman. On paper, they may make more than you, but in the end you win as a MGTOW because you have freedom. Now that you have the most important knowledge, you have the foundations on which to build the best version of yourself. You can pursue a career that actually interests you.

Physical investment is one that men think allows them to cheat the system. Some men are born with genetic traits that would qualify them as a Chad, but many men make themselves into their ideal figure through hard work and dedication. If he works out just to attract women, he’s just as much of a simp as a guy who doesn’t work out. Being physically fit and attractive to women does not prevent them from being a utility to female nature, and they often end up going from alpha fucks to beta bucks when they get older and tied down. It becomes just a glorified mating call for the thirsty men, but if you do it for yourself, it becomes something else entirely. Building your physical form as a representation of the iron will you have inside is one of the best character building exercises you can do, and if your motivation is entirely self-sufficient, you will never have to worry about losing it. Doing it for women can be productive in the short term, a tantalizing carrot on a stick that can keep a man focused until he actually starts getting female attention and gets derailed. How many guys do you know who have pictures from their youth that showed a muscular, energetic guy and then after he met his woman he transformed into something his younger self would be ashamed of? Just like making money, working out isn’t for everyone. But for those who enjoy it, with the MGTOW knowledge you can reach all of your goals.

Another form of investment that would be aided with MGTOW knowledge is academic investment. A lot of intelligent men pursue academics, or at least they used to, but they would be confronted with problems they just couldn’t figure out. I find it amusing when the intellectuals and the researchers are trying to figure out complex solutions to societal issues when you and I know the simplicity of the solution. Imagine if those men weren’t the most blue pilled men in the world and that they understood female nature and could apply their minds to a useful solution. Instead, they ignore reality when it’s right in front of them and continue to support a gynocentric society and unleash the worst of female nature on to the rest of us.

It may be a lot of wasted brain power, but it leaves an opening for any smart MGTOW to work his way into his field of choice and navigate around the current academic environment.

MGTOW is the ultimate investment. It’s versatile and applicable to any field in any time. Avoid the traps women will lay down, be aware of the behaviors of white knights and how the majority of men will throw you under the bus for a chance at a woman, focus on yourself and don’t let society try to shame you for not being a slave. These things can have dramatic effects for any man. Einstein had woman problems, presidents had woman problems, the richest men on Wall Street and the Chads of Hollywood are destroyed by women every day. For the average guy and for the guy at the top of his field, MGTOW can help every man. It requires nothing in return but the application of what you have learned.

MGTOW is the Most Valuable Thing in the Universe

MGTOW is the most precious thing in the universe. I know that sounds extreme, but follow me for a moment. Going MGTOW is the overcoming of nature itself. Nature doesn’t have your best interest in mind. It wants you to reproduce by any means necessary, even if that means enslaving yourself and sacrificing your physical and mental wellbeing. Going MGTOW is staring nature down and deciding that you know what is best for yourself. It is declaring that you are more than the sum of your evolutionary instincts, more than a simple animal, that you can imagine a life outside of the box that you’re supposed to fit in. It overcomes the foundations that everything is built on and allows for you to see beyond the curtain, a transcendence of sorts in that you are no longer bound to the same rules that govern every other species and the majority of the population.

The personal freedom that MGTOW gives you is so powerful that everything is trying to take it from you. You must fight everyday in some capacity to maintain your freedom when even your biology is working against you. Women are designed to capture this gift and use it to their own benefit. Governments are built on the idea of harnessing this treasure.

Those of you who have yet to realize the full potential of MGTOW, know that the journey of collecting all of the knowledge and applying it into your daily life is a long and challenging path. But what did you expect? Did you think something so powerful and liberating would be given to you? No, the effort to really harness MGTOW will break you, and the version of yourself that you will shape in the rebuilding will make it all worth it.

Since this is a metaphyiscal topic that is so large in scope, I’m going to focus it through the lens of the newest Avengers movie. In that movie, Thanos travels throughout the universe searching for the infinity stones, which consist of the Reality, Time, Power, Mind, Space, and Soul stones. I think this is a perfect allegory for the areas where MGTOW really shines.

Your perception of reality fundamentally changes after finding and accepting MGTOW. You begin to see all of the traps that have been laid to capture you, from the media’s reliance on the idea of romance and male sacrifice to women’s manipulation of emotions to coerce you into doing things for them. No matter how hard you try, once you go MGTOW you can never go back. These things will always be present in your mind, and even if you try to ignore them, your gut instinct will be fighting you every step of the way. To change your reality from a false idealistic utopia to a pragmatic and natural order is a great power that we often overlook. We get caught up in the MGTOW community and don’t realize how bad it is for those guys still plugged in, clueless to everything around them. Having this power allows you to acquire the many other powers waiting to be claimed.

The time that is now available to you is probably the most important tangible benefit you get from MGTOW. Time is tangible, and it is the most valuable currency in existence. When your time is up, you will hopefully have the fulfillment from accomplishing your goals that most men will never have. Without time, you can’t enjoy any of the fruits of your labor. It’s ok to use your time on leisure, but there must be a balance in all things, something I’ve been saying since I started my channel and it’s the thing I relate to Thanos with. Go too hard in the pursuit of your goals and you’ll break yourself, go too easily and you’ll never grow. Women don’t have the same value for time that we have because their biological goals are different. Trying to find a woman that doesn’t waste her free time watching reality television or engaging in meaningless gossip will consume all of the time that you would have saved going MGTOW.

The power MGTOW gives takes shape in many forms, it empowers you mentally, physically and metaphysically. The physical power is more important than a lot in the MGTOW community think. Your body is the vessel for everything else, if it is weak or slow or underdeveloped, those traits will naturally seep into the other areas of your being. I’m not a bodybuilder by any means, but actively focusing on physical self improvement improves my mental focus, allowing me to empower those other areas. Going MGTOW and understanding and accepting the red pills gives you many passive benefits, but a lot of the power requires you to reach out and take it for yourself. If you don’t do this, you’re missing out on some of the best parts of going MGTOW.

Harnessing the power of your mind is something that very few have done throughout history, and very few have done today. Most people go through life without setting aside time to collect their thoughts and organize them, to consiously develop their minds and expand beyond the horizons they have placed on their mental planes of existence. While growing the mind is a personal journey, and each mind is different, there are practical steps you can take to get started. All of you should be reading for at least 20 minutes a day. I know I sound like that old librarian at school, but it really does wonders. If you can’t give yourself 20 minutes to work on improving yourself, I don’t really know why you’re going MGTOW at all. You’ll naturally start to love the routine, and soon you’ll find yourself reading more and more until one day you reflect back on your progress and see how much you’ve developed in such a short amount of time. Read everything, start with fiction if that’s your preference, but as long as you start that’s all that matters. If you need some options, my personal library is posted on my website.

The space that MGTOW brings is physical and metaphorical. There are two rules for MGTOW, and from there your personal interpretation is your guide on the path: no marriage and no cohabitation. Whether you choose to date women or not is up to you, but if you follow those two rules, it gives you enough physical space to thrive as a bachelor and conserve your resources, and it gives you the mental space to retain your individuality and freedom. Relationships require compromise, and that means the man is always the one who compromises the most. Having the space to collect yourself and just take a breath is what allows for you to avoid getting wrapped up in a woman and being dragged back to the plantation.

And finally, MGTOW helps you repair the soul. A lot of us found MGTOW when we were broken, at our lowest points. Some of you have noted in comments that I don’t sound angry or bitter in my videos, and that’s because you’re seeing me years after finding MGTOW and going through the grief and red pill rage cycles. That is what awaits you when you give yourself a chance to repair your soul and find peace. For some of you, that process will take longer than others. Some of you were married or had kids or had long relationships, I can only imagine that pain because I found MGTOW at 19 and with a minimal investment in relationships compared to most who find the community. Don’t ever compare yourself to other MGTOW because you walk your own path and can’t judge yourself by their results, but you can use them as guides to help you on your journey.

With these great powers identified you can begin to set yourself to the task of acquiring them, but not fully understanding their power can prove to be just as dangerous as not having them at all. A lot of guys go MGTOW before they are ready to, and that has some damaging effects on them. Guys who use MGTOW as a crutch, who use it as an excuse to continue living a life of meaninglessness and hedonism, both of the body and mind, will destroy themselves with the power MGTOW gives. If you don’t think you’re ready for these powers, don’t feel like you need to rush into anything. I would rather you approach when ready and succeed and thrive with MGTOW rather than fail and be destroyed. Removing women from the pedastal is one of the greatest challenges you will ever face in your lifetime, so don’t go in thinking it’s going to be easy. It will require you to reshape everything, from your goals and purpose in life to controlling your biology and thinking with your bigger head. Most men can’t do it, that’s why the betas and the cucks outnumber us 100 to 1.

Once you have these powers, these MGTOW infinity stones if you will, everyone will try to take them from you. A free man off the plantation is a nuisance, but a free man who has empowered himself to such an extent that he can now manipulate his surroundings to benefit him and then inspire and educate others is beyond just a threat, it is an existential crisis for the powers that seek to strip a man of his freedom. And that is the real test. The struggle to acquire all the stones, all those great powers, will be a long and difficult one, but the fight to keep them once you have obtained them will wear you down and test your limits. The more successful you become, the more happy you become, the more peace you find, the more the world and everyone in it wants to bring you to their level, one of stupidity and ignorance and servitude. Never give in, never give up, carve out what you want for yourself in the world and help those who will listen.
