Richard’s Correspondence On Mailing List ‘D’

with Correspondent No. 8


Continued from Mailing List ‘AF’: No. 118

Re: Richard

RESPONDENT: Richard, I just couldn’t resist the temptation to write something. I was sitting on my bed five minutes back, with the laptop on my belly, and, having briskly read your mail started laughing aloud.

Like you, I have the greatest admiration for Richard the identity.

As for the identity inhabiting this flesh and blood body, ‘he’ is insubstantial, so to speak. Yet, ‘he’ has miles to go.

Though I’m in the 3rd year of medical school, if you ever need a second or third medical opinion, do not hesitate to consult me. I write this having read of your lower back problem. From memory, I say that around 80% of back problems have no identifiable cause (even after radiological investigations such as an X-Ray, CT scan, MRI, etc.).

Regards,

P.S: Becoming a medical doctor is so much easier now that I’m on the road, so to speak, to an actual freedom from the human condition. It is just amazing how the human body fits everything perfectly into place, and works remarkably well having done so.

RICHARD: G’day No. 8, I am glad you see the humour ... life is such a blast.

Yes, ‘he’ was quite a remarkable identity ... we would not be having this chat if it were not for ‘him’.

I am always interested to read your latest report; I have all your posts (including your first ones just before this list moved from Topica) and have no intention of ever letting them vanish into cyber-space as that was a truly remarkable experience ‘you’ brought about.

Well done, I say, for I know what it takes (nerves of steel).

Thank you for your medical opinion offer; without going into too many details MRI scans showed what CT scans did not reveal (spondylolisthesis of L5, displaced forward at age 24, nowadays complicated by age-related bone stenosis pinching the right sciatic nerve ... resulting in a ‘breathless’, debilitating pain all the way down to the small toe).

For instance, towards the tail-end of the DVD video-shoot taken on the river bank (in which I did not talk much) it became increasingly difficult to stay sitting there ... indeed, I had to call an abrupt halt to the video-shoot, eventually.

I appreciate your contribution, No. 8.

Regards, Richard.

Re: Discussion about ‘Actual freedom is highly possible

RICHARD: ‘For the first time in human history, it is possible for anyone who applies themselves with sufficient application and diligence – guided by pure intent – to become virtually free, virtually pure, virtually perfect.

It is then highly possible that this person can actualise the ultimate as being the immediate.’

RESPONDENT No. 9: When was asking of why is it highly possible/highly likely, I was meaning to this: how this is a matter of possibility? Isn’t this a matter of personal choice?

Also you choose the words – it’s possible to achieve VF when so and so, meaning it is a matter of personal choice, but when talking about AF you say it is only highly possible. How can the words ‘highly’ + ‘possible’ be used if it is a matter of personal choice?

RESPONDENT: No. 9, I will attempt to answer this. I’m quite sure Richard will answer it separately too, and comment on what I’ve written (below).

VF is a matter of personal choice – one only needs to look at Irene’s correspondence with Richard to realize that. AF isn’t a matter of personal choice (No person in VF can arrive there by thinking/ feeling himself/ herself to be actually free) but VF is an essential precursor (unless one wants to go through the heart which is another matter altogether). [quote]:

[Respondent]: Are you (the thinker or chooser) bringing about this psychic death?

[Richard]: Yes and no ... and I am not being tricky here. Yes, in that ‘I’ bring about this ‘death’ in that ‘I’ deliberately and consciously and with knowledge aforethought set in motion a ‘process’ that will ensure ‘my’ demise. And no, in that ‘I’ do not do the deed itself for an ‘I’ cannot end itself. What ‘I’ do, voluntarily and willingly, is to press the button which precipitates an oft-times alarming but always thrilling momentum that will result in ‘my’ inevitable self-immolation. What one does is that one dedicates oneself to the challenge of being here as the universe’s experience of itself. When ‘I’ freely and intentionally sacrifice ‘myself’ – the psychological and psychic entities residing inside this body – ‘I’ am gladly making ‘my’ most supreme donation, for ‘I’ am what ‘I’ hold most dear.

It is a welcome release into actuality. I am finally here. I discover that I have always been here ... I have never been anywhere else for there is nowhere else ... except illusion and into delusion. The ‘real world’ and the ‘Greater Reality’ had their existence only in ‘my’ fertile imagination. Only this, the actual world, genuinely exists.

This exquisite surprise brings with it ecstatic relief at the moment of mutation ... life is perfect after all. But, then again, has one not suspected this to be so all along? At the moment of freedom from the Human Condition there is a clear sense of ‘I have always known this’. Doubt is banished forever ... no more verification is required. All is self-evidently pure and perfect. Everything is indeed well.

It is the greatest gift one can bestow upon oneself and others. [endquote]

Does this justify Richard’s use of the words ‘possible’ and ‘highly possible’?

RICHARD: G’day No. 8, !Bingo!

You’ve got it in one ... thank you.

(All the rest is either red-herrings or straw-man arguments).

What a difference experiential knowing/ understanding makes, eh?

(As in being able to more readily/ more easily read with both eyes open ... as is also evidenced by your parenthesised ‘go through the heart’ add-on).

Regards, Richard.

P.S.: My posting may be minimal to non-existent for a while as there is currently a major storm occurring in this area (torrential rains, major flooding, gale force winds – and higher – gusting in excess of 100-130 k/h, complete with a tree collapsing onto my residence around 11.00 pm last night, albeit with minimal damage, and mains-power supplies cut-off affecting thousands) which is not expected to ease until later tomorrow/ early the following day.

I am using my battery-powered laptop to write and send this post.

RICHARD’S HOME PAGE

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.
