The existence of Freedom

Freedom, it is said can only exist within certain ‘bounds and limitations’.(1) 

But what does this mean?

Surely, freedom… is, exactly that. Freedom must be an absolute… isn’t it?

Or is it..

Freedom, if we focus on it, has within it the opposite, which is not being free.

That is, if we are identified with freedom to the exclusion of non-freedom. Therefore, if we are trying to be free and running away from something we trying to be free of, then we will create, through resistance,(2) the very non-freedom which we are trying to escape from.

Thus, freedom, in this situation can only can exist when we are in a state, where there is a situation being free from a state of not being free. Thus, no freedom at all.

What is the solution?

We must maintain a countenance of the willingness of being free or not free with the same degree of impartiality, whilst, simultaneously seeking to free ourselves of any restrictions. ie Desire vs Desirelessness. 

The Buddhists, whom, in my opinion only half understand the emptiness perspective seek freedom as emptiness. They are free because they focus on nothing, and even the concept of being free is simply discarded. But how is this true freedom. Emptiness is merely an escape from being full, or non-empty. 

In other words, the Buddhists are simply focusing on one side of a duality and have not taken the position of universal responsibility of all things being encompassed. 

Thus, freedom can only exist within certain confines and limitations of duality, but beyond thought, freedom most certainly exists to the degree we are able to encompass the dualities of life; ie being free vs not being free, emptiness vs non-emptiness.

Are we in a situation where we will always be forever learning? Perhaps, yes. But we can do so within the concept of ever expanding parameters of freedom, not from a position of perpetuating one small bubble of perceived freedom where we never progress.

Encompass the concept of being free, or not, with the same degree of impartiality.

(1) John Whitman Ray
(2) Resistance is where is focus on something and the do not want the other side, so we exclude it. ie we want to be loved, but do not want to be not loved. The problem is, that in our minds the resistance is what we focus on and create the thing we which do not want. Take this example explained further – I want to be loved, but because I acknowledge that I am not being loved I try to create something to solve the problem of not being loved. I focus on not being loved as the underlying pattern. No matter how much I focus on being loved I keep creating it’s opposite. That is until I can be willing to be both with the same degree of impartiality.

Choosing your child’s school … interrogatories and postulates 

Where X is the demographic net worth and Y is the percentage of white populous a given demographic.

In the west we have a culture of immigration from the east.

In Australia, for example, 28% of the population is born overseas.(1)

This is very intriguing. 

What I have observed in the thinking patterns in Australia is a pre-disposition of compromise with our schooling.

I believe there is multiple overlapping theories one can apply in assisting ones kids develop.

Firstly we must have a willingness to overcome the ‘unwillingness to be the effect’ of the ‘fact’, that Australia is soon to be a nation of ‘everywhere else’.

In this regard, assisting kids to gain exposure to the multitude of cultures that are available now.

I submit however, that those that are predominantly pushing for a single race class will servely limit the child’s ability to overcome this predisposition to be the unwillingness to be the effect.

I see it everyday, entire classes and even work environments full of either all white males or white females. Admittedly this is a dying trend.

The point, is to embrace and to have the willingness to strive for a willingness to be the unwillingness to be the effect of these situations.

I believe there is an optimum overlapping, of balance of culture and demographic upliftment where we can … shall we say; have a creative environment for our kids to grow whilst overcoming the predisposition to seek compromise.

Australia is in a unique position where the future of our kids upbringing will be assisted where we can embrace culture from around the world.

I may further submit that; ‘in vain do we build the empire.. without first building the man'(2).

Thus I submit that we should seek our own balance, and beyond by expanding our awareness and letting the water seek its own level..

By holding onto isolationalist thinking patterns where we only associate with anglofiles perpetuates patterns the world left behind long ago.

This such an exciting time ahead.

I wonder what languages can be taught in schools, I wonder what exchange programs can be encompassed.

I wonder whom will embrace the facts and whom will not.

I might say also; that I abhor the statement such as ‘this is un-Australian’… have you ever heard this in your own country?

It is a justification by the masses to perpetuate the status quo. This should be earmarked for chopping down.

This is not to say.. the ‘civilised’ world should throw it’s rule of law to the winds; quite the opposite… however, I believe you’ll find this statement is not used in this manner.

Some contradictions in this article? Some challenging ways to think about things? 

What happens when the bubble of consciousness bursts? We expand our minds and hearts to a new collective higher way of thinking.

And that’s all I know; The value of life

Interestingly, as I was chatting with Lovepreet whilst he was Ubering me back to the Melbourne airport he noted that after moving here three years ago he’d never been back to Punjab.

I found this interesting as most Sikhs I’ve spoken to recently always make regular trips back to the mothership.

Anyway… Lovepreet  mused on and on about many topics about the homeland when I asked my usual broad strokes open question on his home…. as his voice faded into the background I noticed his CD player was on silent … The title of the song playing on silent being something like boo Chau coo koo…. I wondered if this was the sort of screeching Indian music one normally hears in a Hindi shop or nice Italian… his phone rang, also,  notably also on silent …

Lovepreet is not your normal Punjabi … I mused quietly to myself..

The topic turned to cars and traffic and I asked… are there any rules or law on the road? He said no, and joked the sole purpose of the police was to stop you and fleece 200 rupees off you. Apart from that, no policing exhisted.

He then said something which stopped my thoughts on the desolated look Melbourne has… he said, ‘there is no value for life… the only value for a mans life is the value you pay for it’… that value he explained was the amount of money you need to pay if you are caught killing someone…

Lovepreet articulated this value with stunning accuracy and insight, I thought… the value .. I thought.. is what you, pay… we live in a vast and different world. One, which is very different from Melbourne in contrast to India…

One in which I’m certain Lovepreet traded his waste level hair and turben for…

and that’s all I know..

Parental Musings

The most common thing I observe with parental behaviour is the persistence to continually try to manipulate their children into ‘doing’, what they think they should be ‘doing’.

Stop for a moment and consider the word ‘doing‘.

The common underlying word pattern nested below the behavioural pattern goes something like; ‘if you don’t do this, then I will do that‘.

I’m asking myself the question here as I sit watching my son do swimming lessons;

what if we treated our kids like intelligent beings, and we were just more patient?

Let me dig deeper, if I may. Several kids were waiting to swim listening to the instructor give some pre-swimming instructions.

One of the kids jumped up quickly and crowed like a chicken.. or perhaps a frog. I thought; ‘what is he doing?’.. which is besides point .. right? Or is it…

The kid sat down in an instant and continued to listen.

From across the room the Father said; ‘if you don’t sit down, I’ll take you home‘.

Of course the Father has probably said that many times and the reality is… he is not going to take him home, he knows… the little boy sure as hell knows it!

This pattern or rather reactive pattern, is one of the most preponderant patterns I’ve observed with parents. It often is the most justified making it deeply reactive and deeply hard to overcome.

Parents; assume a position of desirelessness, to be or not to be, focus on the word patterns, then  choose without resistance to do what you want to do without reaction, condition, or direction, which of course encompasses not doing what we want to do, which then leads us to have or not have our desired outcome.

Focus on why we are reactive and seek to purify rather than justify ourselves.

Spiritual advancement, or the growth of intelligence doesn’t happen in some far away place, away from family and friends  – it is an archetypal metaphysical polymorphism right in the moment.

It happens on the coal face right in everyday life, we just need to be willing to see it.

So the question is; what happens if we are more patient and what happens when we choose to become more intelligent.. and what happens when we are more patient, rather than reactive is listening and encouraging or kids, rather than trying to manipuate and control them.

My guess, is treating them more intelligently, makes them so.

enjoy..

The Social Construct

The social construct appears to be a virulent overarching conditioning programmed into the genetic pre-conditioned choices of societies.

I’ve taken time out to observe this in action in some regional communities recently; particularly in Asia and regional Australia.

The separation on the individual psyche from the social pattern of thinking, or the collective attitudinal matrix appears to be virtually non-existent.

What this equates to is an identification with environmental stimuli, which, arguably, is a construct of what Ray, J called the Constitutional Man in the logic in sequence series.

In Asia, the  hierarchical social system ensures that the lower order must profitiate itself to the higher order.

In Australia, the tall poppies syndrome manifests as the perpetual middle class clenching for survival and chopping down people whom wish to ascend.

Both need to be clearly visualised on the mental level before true freedom can manifest.
