What is true freedom?!
Question from the Internet:
“Isn’t freedom a must? So shouldn’t EVERYONE be free?”
It is true that everyone should be free. It is true that freedom is a must. But what should we liberate ourselves from, what keeps us as slaves?
Superficially it seems people are enslaving, controlling and manipulating others. Superficially it seems that if we got rid of certain people, groups of people, nations or ideologies if we rewrote history for example we could eradicate freedom.
Superficially it also seems that the perpetual dream of, fighting for individual freedom has merit.
But when we start to understand and recognize our true nature, when we start to see the root cause of everything that has been ailing humanity through history and the same root cause that is causing our own perpetual crisis situations, then we finally understand what we need to liberate ourselves from.
The only ruthless tyrant, all-powerful slave-master we need to escape from is our own, inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and exploitative nature, that locks us into limited and distorted consciousness and perception of reality and forces us to ruthlessly compete, fight against others for resources and survival.
It does not matter what we see in others, we are all the same, we are all inherently selfish and exploitative — knowingly or unknowingly. If we already recognized it ourselves to a certain extent we already have some chance and ability to make corrections.
But in order to recognize the full depth of the cancer-like ego driving all of us and to find and implement the effective remedy, we need a unique, purposeful and highly practical method.
Only with the help of this method can we literally liberate ourselves from the total governance of the ego to such an extent, that in the end we can even use and harness the awesome, irrepressible and insatiable driving force of the ego toward positive, constructive, mutually beneficial goals and purpose.
Only then can we build a seamlessly, mutually integrated Human society that integrates into Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system through the acquired similarity. Since we are a single living organism, a single species in Nature we do not have individual rights or freedom as we imagined it, we only have a collective Human right to adapt ourselves to Nature’s system in order to become its only fully conscious, “insider” observer and partner.
