Guriko's Notes
It was a chilly December afternoon when I exited unto the streets of the city out of the library where I was studying for my upcoming Neurology exam. Words from someone whom I sadly do not remember were dancing in my head: ‘Buy a notebook. Write your thoughts and see them change in front of your eyes as time passes. So will you.’

It was a spur of the moment decision – I went into the bookstore where I bought all my books for the semester and purchased an A5 black notebook with leather covers. It was not the cheapest of investments for a student but somehow I felt a connection with the little black tome.

That day I started writing my thoughts which popped into my head. Be they my original creation or from someone else. Writing seems to make them eternal. The ink on the paper speaks back to me. Like I am talking to my younger self. Sometimes I wish the older me would have given the younger me a good punch for the stupid shit I did. But alas, one only learns through his mistakes. The best one can hope for is that no error in judgment is so severe that it causes harm to you, your loved ones or strangers.

You are about to read my reflections upon life, through a 6 month period, as I walk through it. Recording ones musings is an interesting endeavor I would recommend to all. One learns about himself in ways not really suspected.

Not everything, not even half of what you will read is a true product of my own. I very much like to read and it serves me well to scribble down the sentences which truly resonate with me or I wish to take them as inspiration.

I have grown tired of forgetting the Knowledge of Men. I want to know, I want to understand, I want to internalize. Many things you will read were first written by either respected forum members, ROK authors, Quintus, Mike Cernovich, Victor Pride, Chris from GLL or notable (or less notable) book authors.

I take no credit whatsoever. I consider myself blessed being given the opportunity to read such monumental works which have broadened my horizons and given me meaning and hope in my darkest hours.

Some things will repeat themselves because I am a fool who needs to discipline myself. I did not wish to omit them because I believe it would cheapen the whole thing. I wish to show you everything, with honesty and integrity.

These are the ponderings of a young punk in his twenties, please take this into consideration. I am no Wise Man. Just a Kid who wishes to become a Man. Maybe one day even a Wise one.

My intention or why I am sharing this with you is the single hope that some will find use for these. Even if it will give one person a reason to try again, a reason to not give up, but wield the sword and shield once more and lounge themselves into the fray, a reason to be inspired… anything! I will have considered this a worthy endeavor.

In fact, it already is, for it has truly helped me. It’s really interesting to read ones thoughts 6 months ago and how quickly things change. Nothing is static, everything is dynamic.

If the numbering will seem odd to you, it is so with my intention – I have disregarded those things that directly relate to my private life. I apologize in advance and ask for your understanding.

My (current) mottos

You must do the most productive thing at every given moment. What are you doing right now?

Every day I will be one brick better of a Man than I was yesterday.

Adapt your life around the lifestyle you wish to live.

Preparation, preparation, preparation!

Do not do multiple things at the same time but do one thing at a time. No multitasking! Focus!

I will become the best damn physician in the whole Manosphere. And the most satisfied one.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Rejection is better than regret.


1. We wish new technologies, when even the old ones we do not truly understand.

2. The demon within you is making you waste your time. Do not silence him, guide him! Make a plan for each day and think about how you will execute it.

3. A man is not born a man. He must become a man. Once he becomes a man he must strive to become a king. After he becomes a king thousand of whores disguising themselves as princesses will woo for his attention. Carefully he must have learned how to discern the harlots from the Queen. After finding his queen he must strive to rule over his domain as a Philosopher King. The question which remains unanswered is: ‘How big shall my domain be?’

4. A divided mind does its task dividedly. Many are started but none finished properly. Plan your task carefully and execute them with enthusiastic fervor.

5. As you must exhaust your mind, so too, you must exhaust your body. Balance must be maintained, for only then shall you sleep well.

6. Who works must also rest. Even rest must be planned beforehand.


7. Red Pill is Treatment. What we need is Prevention – a Red Vaccine.

8. Every time, when you try to exaggerate you burn out. Exaggerate right before the crucial moment, with the help of adrenaline. Before that it makes no sense.

9. Three meals a day – eat good and healthy.


10. Preparation is key. Improvisation becomes a consequence of said preparation. Be flexible within your own plans!

11. Build upon your strengths. Own your weaknesses, but work to minimize them.


12. To be perfect you cannot wait on the perfect moment or opportunity. In order to become perfect you must perfect every single moment and opportunity.


14. You can plan for yourself. But not yet for yourself and your love. When you are alone make a plan for yourself. When you are with her make a plan for yourself, her and for both.

15. Plan, plan, PLAN!

16. How will you seize the day when you are tired? On those days you must force yourself to make a plan. Plan your rest and seize the day!

17. Disengage from all activities which rob you of your energy and time but are not productive. The internet poses a serious problem.

18. The former plan for studying is not applicable. Why? Because Men are not good in doing many things at the same time. Me especially not. But I am good at concentrating 100% on one single effort. Do one thing at a time. Piece by piece. Building is meant to be in a sequential order. You do not build the foundation and roof at the same time. Both are started but none completed.

19. Movement, movement, movement!

20. A Man leads. If he is a true Man then the others shall follow him. A true Man believes in himself and the actions he undertakes. Even if they are painful.


22. Happy New Year! Now fight!


23. How to parallel park a car (on the right side of the road):

- When you can see the back end of the car through your rear triangular window – start turning right
- When you see the whole car in your right side mirror – straighten the steering wheel
- When your right side mirror is aligned with the left bumper of the car – start turning left and straighten the car

Note: I apologize if this is hard to understand. Simply put – it’s a bitch translating such terms from my mother language into English.


24. Home is for resting and family. The library and university are for studying and work. Do not mix those things. Train outside!


25. Do not multitask. Turn the volume down, no, silence the music!

26. Be a rock within a droplet of water. Solid principals but flexible enough to go through any crack be it yet so small.

27. What is my foundation? What is, exactly, my goal?

To set an example.

The foundations upon which I will build:

- Being a loving patriarch towards my wife.
- My family will love me.
- My friends will cherish me.
- My enemies will respect me.

28. Do not waste time. The seconds become minutes, the minutes become hours, the hours become days, the days become weeks, the weeks become months and the months become years. How much time, until now, have you wasted? STOP IT!

29. Be strict upon yourself but also permit yourself to indulge.

30. Less forums and internet – make use of the time!

31. How will I become financially independent?


32. Take responsibility for your actions.

33. Cut costs where it is prudent. Spare no expense where it is worth it.

34. Do not multitask!

35. Passive income, books and video games.

36. How to seize the day with maximum efficiency?

37. It does not matter how long you work, what matters is how much you accomplish during the time you work.

38. It is better to spend one hour studying in the library, than three hours at home.

39. You are afraid of failing. Stop. As long as you do not destroy yourself, the ones you love or innocents you can, no, you must, try as many times as it takes.

40. Get a gym membership.

41. I feel passion towards change.

42. Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst.


42. Rubbish in = rubbish out. Avoid negative media, people and places. Humans are influenced, whether they like it or not, by their environment.

43. Body and Mind are linked – good diet, good exercise and good sleeping habits are tantamount.

44. You become what you think about – if you focus on negative thoughts that is what you are inviting more off in your life. Focus on what you want and ignore the rest!

45. What is my goal? To become HOMO MEDICUS CIRCULI!

46. Calculate weekly expense compounded over 10 years – expense times 752.
Calculate monthly expense compounded over 10 years – expense times 173.


47. Calculated sleep deprivation has proven anti – depressive effects.

48. Empires were built brick by brick, step by step. But continuously, without pause and with unbridled optimism.

49. The secret of getting ahead is getting started.


51. Take away porn. Take away forums. Take away politics. Take away Facebook. How much time have you gained?

52. No porn – don’t look at porn. No fap – do not touch your genitals.

53. Plan, plan, PLAN!

54. We’ve become people of now, instead of then.

55. My daily obligations.

Every lecture and seminar must be studied!
50 pages of a book.
Two pages of the Holy Bible.


56. Read House of God.

57. Appearance, presentation and substance.

58. Medicine has become chaos. Perhaps it always was chaos? For the first time in my life I try ease the pain within my heart by writing into a small black booklet. Why do I feel anxiety? Because I wish to find a system within a system which is totally confused?

Because I try to swim within a river, whose currents change directions every now and then? It does not matter how I try to swim – against the current, with the current, under the current it turns me around and carries me wherever it wishes. Mercilessly and indifferently. Brutally, because it simply exists and does not care about me.

It’s simple really. It’s bigger than me and stronger. I represent a droplet within its ocean, a cell within its body. Do I care about MY cells? No. How then can I expect, that the system, Nature itself shall care about me? I don’t. I could but I’ll only get disappointed.


59. Kingdoms were built with a million little actions. But tirelessly.

60. Do not fight against Nature. Cooperate with her. Do not fight against Faith, accept it. Cooperate, accept and relax.

61. Learn for the exam. Study for yourself. Educate oneself.

You may check Facebook, Return of Kings and your political sites maximally 3 times per day. 15. Visit sites you cheer for in order to give them traffic!


63. Antonio Vieira

‘We are what we do. What we don’t do doesn’t exist. Therefore, we can only exist on days when we do. On the day we don’t do, we simply endure.’

‘ The purpose of men who have invented the book was to cherish the memory of past things, against the tyranny of time and against forgetting men.’

64. If I study for an exam my knowledge is skewed but I pass the exam.
If I study to understand my knowledge is adequate but I do not pass the exam.
If I study for an exam and to understand then I have no time to learn on how to be a Man.
What to do?
Become a Man, study for the exams and supplement your knowledge on medicine in your spare time.

66. The emptiness inside of me is a consequence of lacking in masculinity. With each book that I will read and each endeavor I will successfully undertake will it be filled, little by little. The moment when it is full will I know what I wish in life.

166. How to pick the right wife. By Victor Pride

Marriage is a business contract. Why would men want to get married? To raise a family and for political reasons.

Goals of a marriage:

- Minimize the chance for a divorce and child robbery.
- Maximize wives happiness with wifely and motherly duties.
- Have a healthy, happy family with well educated and respectful children.

Be honest about what I want --> a sweet, nice, joyful and feminine woman who treats me like a KING!

Don’t be a male suck up!

I am not an American – check upon the divorce laws within your country!

When to settle? When you are 30 years old.

12 Rules when picking a Wife (and how I have answered it with my current relationship)

1. She must be young --> she has given me her best years.
2. Intact family with an original father and mother --> her parents divorced on the initiation of her father 6 years into our relationship and she still respects him.
3. She cannot believe in divorce or even getting a divorce --> she does not.
4. She must have the natural body type you prefer --> she does.
5. She must be image conscious --> she is.
7. She must be family oriented and not career oriented --> she wishes for me to pursue a career while she works part time as we start out and be home for our kids.
8. She must be a good girl --> she was with me when I hit rock bottom. She is.
9. She must have no problem signing a pre – nuptial --> she has no problems.
10. She must change for me --> she did.
11. She must look up to you and respect you --> she does.
12. She must be a smiler. Every time I come she should smile --> she does.

Party girls are for fun. Good girls are for marriage.

She must cook --> she does so beautifully with the recipes of her mother and grandmother.

My options will not dwindle with age. They will increase. Even more so as I will self improve. THIS IS IMPORTANT. DO NOT FORGET!

I will not tolerate a lazy, entitled, ‘me – first’ attitude woman.

Don’t let have complete power of the décor.

I am the leader. She is the follower. LEAD HER!

If she loves me she will enjoy everything about me. HAVE VISION!

Marriage must be old school traditional in order to work.
Never marry just because. Have purpose and reason.
Marriage is a dangerous proposition. Learn to swim before you dive in.

If she is my soul mate --> she will stay with me.

The best suitable wife should come from your own culture, your own country.

Only nuclear families enable civilizations to flourish!


Important --> you are not an American which is why there will be cultural differences which you must understand and accept.

167. Can society ills be traced back to ‘equality’?

168. The female imperative is that of equality which goes against Nature as nothing within Nature is equal which is why the female imperative is WRONG.

The male imperative is that of inequality which is in concordance with Nature as everything within nature is different. If everything within Nature is different than everything is, at the same time, equal. Truth without paradox is not truth, which is why the male imperative is RIGHT.

180. Do not justify mistakes by perpetuating them.

181. Everything has a price --> am I getting what I want for the things I am letting go?

182. A black box --> what am I paying to stay in the box, what is the cost to get out of the box and what can I do after I get out?

183. I am the sovereign authority over my life.

184. Never credit or blame my life to others.

185. To be free, you only must make the decision to be free.

205. Accessing my archetypical powers --> active imagination, Dialogue, Invocation and ‘As if’ questions.


[Image: Mqx1Z5Pl.jpg]

This picture requires explanation. In one his podcasts Mike Cernovich advocated to read this book called King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine saying that it helped him get a better understanding of himself.

After reading it myself I agree. This book describes the male’s personality from a Jungian perspective. Jung was a pupil of Freud but went on to develop his own theories about the psyche and soul. This book basically says that the male personality is divided into four archetypes when we are young and four archetypes when grow into adults. The names and characteristics of the archetypes differ with age but they can still be summed up into: King, Warrior, Magician and Lover.

Each of the 4 archetypes has its ideal state, its shadow state and its over the top state. For example: the kingly archetype --> the ideal state is the King, the shadow state is the Weakling and the over the top state is the Tyrant.

Within the text it is explained that every Man has a tendency towards one archetype, be it King, Warrior, Magician or Lover. It provides ample explanation for each and also gives examples. It says that this is good for it gives our species diversity and the ability of labor specialization. It was so since the beginning of time, one could say. There will be Men who will wish to Govern and Conquer, Men who will wish to Fight and Explore, Men who will wish to Study and Tinker and Men who will wish to Love and Dream.

Jungians argue that male personality disorders and problems arise when the four archetypes get out of order or when it gets to a point that exogenous or endogenous factors let the shadow or over the top state overtake our outwards i.e. the one other’s can see personality.

They advise and base their therapy on realigning the states and by giving patients the ability to find the one they feel the most connected to. I think you guys know deep inside and instinctively what you really are or what make you alive – be it fights, power, women or Natures unknown.

As self help they give tips on how we can access these powers through either active imagination, Dialogues, Invocation or As If questions. They encourage giving each archetype within your soul a visualization so it will be easier to ‘talk’ to them. You do not need to talk aloud but if you wish than you should most certainly do so.

Find a quiet room and visualize these 4 Archetypes and simply ask them questions: ‘How would a just King handle this situation with my employee?’ ‘How would a Lover best approach this woman?’ ‘Am I letting the Tyrant rule over me and make my family suffer?’ Etc.

I’ll give myself as an example. Here are pages where I give each of the archetypes within myself a picture and name. These things are subjects to change of course. Momentarily it serves me best when I believe:

- The Warrior to be Mike Cernovich (on the picture – Solaire of Astora from a game called Dark Souls)

- The King to be Victor Pride (on the picture – a painting of Odin I found on DeviantArt).

- The Magician to be Quintus Curtius (on the picture – Gandalf)

- The Lover to be Chris from Good Looking Loser (on the picture – actor Errol Flynn)

When I am faced with a problem I take 15 to 30 minutes in the evening for myself in a room where every electronic device is shut down and I have peace and simply talk to them. How would Mike face this problem? How would Quintus calm down? Where would he find the resources needed in order to find a solution for this problem? How would Chris go on about getting this girl? How would Victor conquer this quest? And etc.

These are all figments of my imagination which I call upon when I am stressed out or need to reaffirm myself. It borders on the esoteric but it has helped me.

I hope I’ve given an adequate description because the subject is very dense to put into a page or two. I really recommend the book! It’s a short read, 200 pages so it won’t take long. It is even shorter, if you won’t like it. Ha-ha.
