Richard’s Correspondence on Mailing List ‘B’
with Respondent No. 56
RESPONDENT No. 10: Why do we teach (and were taught) to want?
RICHARD: So as to change one’s lot in life.
RESPONDENT No. 10: Hum how stupid are you Richard, we have been doing that for 3 million years, and each change is for the worse, for it is thought invented. The consciousness that created what is, cannot fix the ‘what is’ for it is the what is.
RESPONDENT: From here it seems that want itself is the very problem – want is the perception of lack. We do not want to want, we want to have. But we think we need to want, and for that reason we choose to want. Here’s a startling proposal for you: the things we value come to us not because we want them, but in spite of us wanting them. Wanting them is a hindrance to getting them. Want is just like hate, something to be let go of (i.e., allowed to be there with no resistance) as soon as it is seen. Want is an alarm clock revealing unnecessary attitudes that can be released.
RICHARD: I can understand my previous co-respondent rushing past the ‘sincerely wanting’ part of what I wrote as he has an investment to maintain ... but you snipped the sequence off entirely and fell to discussing the plain or garden version of ‘want’ and ‘wanting’ as if you were, in fact, responding accurately to what I am conveying. Here is what I wrote in sequence:
If you are genuinely interested in discussing this subject I will expand upon my ‘sincerity works to awaken one’s dormant naiveté’ sentence so as to start the ball rolling.
Because it is quite simple: naiveté is the closest one can come to innocence whilst being a ‘self’.
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.
