On The Actual Freedom Mailing List
with Correspondent No. 40
RESPONDENT: Hello to all – I always like to introduce myself before I slip quietly into the corner, giving myself time to absorb the shapes and scents of others as they discuss and expand thoughts on a mailing list. So there I was, thoughts wandering in the gentleness of another late Thursday night in Sydney. Straying from the path I thought I had laid for myself, the strangest things can happen. I met a wonderful gentle soul (the sort you can’t search for, but only find – when/where you least expect it!) who told me of actualfreedom.com.au and of the writings of Richard et al. Well thankyou to them for directing me here, and of course to all for the excellent discussions going on here. It’s been over 20 years, since I’ve seen the human condition in a negative light, I find it more a source of inspiration. (Sometimes very challenging nonetheless). So its quite a belief shift for me (and an eye opener) to make the most of the content here. It’s terrific.
RICHARD: Welcome to The Actual Freedom Mailing List ... before you do ‘slip quietly into the corner’ I will take the opportunity to point out that the writings on The Actual Freedom Trust website are a presentation of fact regarding the human condition, with the invitation to find out for oneself that it be so, and not the presentation of the human condition ‘in a negative light’ (which would imply that ignoring or being oblivious to fact regarding the human condition is to see the human condition in a positive light).
Any fact is, of itself, value-free: seeing the fact does not entail a ‘belief shift’ – no matter how eye-opening, challenging, or inspiring that shift may be – rather a suspension of belief is required in order for factuality to become apparent. Moreover, the fact renders belief, and all its attendant fervours (such as faith, trust, hope, and certitude) redundant ... factuality is, by its very nature, liberating.
Put succinctly: being positive depends on the negative for its very existence.
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.
