On The Actual Freedom Mailing List
with Correspondent No. 80
RESPONDENT: I am a new list member. I am in a very painful process of relinquishing the illusion of control over my life ...
RICHARD: Welcome to The Actual Freedom Trust mailing list ... you have come to the right place, then, as the wide and wondrous path to an actual freedom from the human condition is marked by enjoyment and appreciation (if it is not then one can be sure that one has inadvertently wandered off the way).
RESPONDENT: ... [I am in a very painful process of relinquishing the illusion of control over my life] and the entire concept of ‘worthiness’ of ... ‘whatever’.
RICHARD: Given that you say ‘whatever’ it may be pertinent to point out that you have a vital role to play, not only in regards peace-on-earth, in this lifetime as that flesh and blood body, but in enabling the already always existing meaning of life (or ‘the purpose of the universe’ or ‘the reason for existence’ or however one’s quest may be described) into becoming apparent.
In short: your freedom, or lack thereof, is in your hands and your hands alone.
RESPONDENT: I am not sure if I belong here or not.
RICHARD: Although it may be merely an expression this is an apt moment to make the observation that, whatever it is that you do, decline any temptation to reinforce the gregarian impulse (the herd instinct) by attempting to belong to whatever (non-existent) group you may be assuming exists simply because many and varied peoples write to this forum.
RESPONDENT: I found you all during an attempt to find an old group called ‘End of the Rope Ranch’, if any of you know about it.
RICHARD: The convener of that mailing list does write to this list from time-to-time ... mainly, from what I can gather, to be as rude, crude, and indifferent as possible in as few words as possible (thereby demonstrating to all and sundry with the eyes to see that the ‘Tried and True’ is indeed the tried and failed).
RESPONDENT: There must have been at least a small amount of overlap at one time.
RICHARD: Nope, an actual freedom from the human condition is 180 degrees opposite to ‘Self-Realisation’ (aka spiritual enlightenment/mystical awakenment) ... not that this clearly enunciated fact is something the convener of that mailing list being referred to has managed to grasp yet.
RESPONDENT: Can someone point out some of the writings and resources and thinkers who have provided a foundation for your discussions here, if any exist?
RICHARD: The writings (and, thus, the resources) for what is to be found on this mailing list are located on The Actual Freedom Trust web site. Vis.:
There are no ‘the thinkers’ ... actualism, the direct experience that matter is not merely passive, is experiential, not intellectual.
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.
