On The Actual Freedom Mailing List
With Correspondent No. 116
RESPONDENT: Richard, I surfed your website for one day only and the clarity you have found is amazing.
RICHARD: Welcome to The Actual Freedom Trust mailing list ... being sans the entire affective faculty/ identity in toto the clarity you refer to is simply the outcome of (human) intelligence no longer being crippled by same.
RESPONDENT: Your approach to the whole problem is very simple and direct and not couched in mysterious phrases or delusions.
RICHARD: That is because life here in this actual world is very simple and direct ... being actual it can be reported/ described/ explained, unambiguously and unequivocally, as-it-is.
RESPONDENT: Reminds me of all great science, magnificent in its insights but expressed with breathtaking simplicity.
RICHARD: This is an apt place to point out, right up-front and out-in-the open, that what I have to report/ describe/ explain is experiential and not scientifical.
RESPONDENT: It is rather amazing as you assert that nobody else has ever approached the problem this way.
RICHARD: As I was born and raised on a farm being carved by hand out of virgin forest by pioneer settlers with few means, where initiative and ingenuity were the order of the day, I have always had a practical bent and all through the eleven years of spiritual enlightenment/ mystical awakenment my general rule of thumb was: if a proposed solution to all the ills of humankind has no universality (a global application) it is not worth pursuing ... ‘tis then a selfish solution.
RESPONDENT: To realize that all the great spiritual teachers and even from such traditions which ask one to question everything still held delusions within their bosoms is a rather frightening prospect.
RICHARD: The implications and ramifications are quite staggering for it not only means that all the trillions upon trillions of words by the much revered and venerated saints and sages and seers from all cultures stretching back into antiquity are not even worth the paper they are written on (or the clay tablets they are impressed upon, the stone blocks they are carved into, the papyrus/ palm-leaves/ rice-paper/ wood-pulp/ vellum/ parchment they are inscribed upon) but even more to the point it means that one can now stand on one’s own two feet, beholden to no one at all, as a fully autonomous individual.
RESPONDENT: Is it probable that peace is a realistic prospect for the whole of humanity given the power of these animal passions of delusions and ego (even in the famously enlightened).
RICHARD: Presuming you mean a global peace – as contrasted to an individual peace – it must be borne in mind that each and every baby is born biologically endowed, via blind nature, with basic instinctual passions (such as fear and aggression and nurture and desire) as a rough and ready survival package ... just as it must be also borne in mind that the way children are raised is in accord with the prevailing wisdom of the time (currently in the form of values/ principles and morals/ ethics per favour the trickle-down effect of spiritual enlightenment/ mystical awakenment/ self-realisation).
Therefore, it is the flow-on effect of the words and writings of an actual freedom from the human condition – as in practically anyone now being able to be as happy and as harmless (virtually free of both malice and sorrow and their antidotal pacifiers love and compassion) as is humanly possible – which is the most probable and realistic prospect, in the foreseeable future, for all of humankind ... and which is why I stress the importance of a virtual freedom.
Although that is, of course, according to the current situation ... the moment another becomes actually free from the human condition (especially if it be a female) that scenario may very well undergo a profound reappraisal.
The Third Alternative
(Peace On Earth In This Life Time As This Flesh And Blood Body)
Here is an actual freedom from the Human Condition, surpassing Spiritual Enlightenment and any other Altered State Of Consciousness, and challenging all philosophy, psychiatry, metaphysics (including quantum physics with its mystic cosmogony), anthropology, sociology ... and any religion along with its paranormal theology. Discarding all of the beliefs that have held humankind in thralldom for aeons, the way has now been discovered that cuts through the ‘Tried and True’ and enables anyone to be, for the first time, a fully free and autonomous individual living in utter peace and tranquillity, beholden to no-one.
