Actualist: An advocate of actualism. Oxford Dictionary
Peter: On the path to Actual Freedom, to be a mere advocate
of actualism is a second-rate choice. An actualist is someone who is actively, intently, stubbornly, full bloodedly, whole-heartedly and
totally consumed in the pursuit of an individual actual freedom from the Human Condition. An actualist is concerned with action not advocacy,
and with practical implementation and radical change, not theoretical observation and superficial adaptation.
An actualist is a relentless pursuer of what is factual and what is actual.
An actualist is one who devotes his or her life to actualizing peace on earth in
the only way possible and gets to have the adventure of a lifetime on the way. It is the most significant thing one can do with one’s life
– one’s ‘three score and ten’ of existence as a human being. The whole point of being an actualist is to find out about what it is to
be a human being. To explore, investigate, uncover, discover, dig in, find out, realize and then put into practice what you discover.
As with anything new there will be pit-falls, wobbles, fears and doubts, stuck
periods, wrong alleys, etc. But given a sincere intent to be the best one can be, a willingness to abandon what doesn’t work and a daringness
to take risks, success is inevitable. This exploration into the Human Condition, conducted in one’s own psyche, is brand new on the planet.
Not only has it never been done before, it could never have been done before.
It is only in the last 40 years or so that the human species is emerging from a
genesis based entirely on survival. The survival-only phase is over, for those who want it, and for whom the circumstances are right. Only now,
with the dawning of the information age, is it possible for the individual to find out for themselves. To access and read all of Ancient
Wisdom, mankind’s history, philosophy, science, current happenings, etc. on a scale, and with an ease of accessibility, inconceivable even 40
years ago. To be able to easily and directly ‘find out’ from the convenience of a computer and the comfort of a couch. To study the Human
Condition in action, global-wide, on the 7 o’clock news.
And then, you get to put what you have found out into practice … in your daily
An actualist mixes, mingles, works with and lives with, one’s fellow human beings
as-they-are in the world-as-it-is. The trick is to do this while being free of the shackles of feeling and being part of a group – of needing
or having a social identity. The next level is to be free of being blindly, obsessively and instinctually driven to impassioned acts of fear,
aggression, nurture and desire that give rise to malice and sorrow. For this to happen one needs to have lived a virtual freedom in the
world-as-it-is with people-as-they-are in order to gain confidence that one can stop being a being who is instinctively on-guard or
ready – and eager – to attack one’s fellow human beings. This confidence, surety and experience also means, when the moment of
self-immolation occurs, one will not instinctively grab for the delusion of freedom – feeling one is free rather than being actually
There is a sacred ceiling in operation for anyone searching for freedom, peace and
happiness, franticly maintained and policed by the Gurus, shamans and holy men and their followers. All sorts of tactics, threats,
dimwitticisms and inanities are strutted out to enslave the spiritual searcher as a loyal suppliant and stop him or her from searching anywhere
This sacred ceiling is being broken by pioneers and it will be broken only by people doing it, and
the subsequent subversive spreading of the word that it is now possible. Those who firmly believe in the sacred believe the sacred ceiling to
be actual, inviolate and impenetrable. For those who don’t believe it doesn’t exist – it is an illusion constructed by human beings
themselves, given credence by ancient fear-ridden fairy stories and one’s own instinctual passions. How to break through? Make it your
passion, your ambition, your goal, your work. Devote yourself fully to the task, ride upon the thrill of pioneering, take up the challenge and,
in my experience, you will find altruism – right there with you, as an innate companion.
