LITANY AGAINST FEAR

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.



Thank you, dear Morguana for this beautiful Litany
Freedom from fear is essential!

Love&Respect

We have made thee neither of heaven nor of earth,
Neither mortal or immortal,
So that with freedom of choice and with honor,
As thought the maker and molder of thyself,
Thou mayest fashion thyself in whatever shape thou shalt prefer.
Thou shalt have the power out of thy soul's judgment,
to be reborn into the higher forms, which are divine.


- Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola

ooooooo i love byron, so much infact that my sone is named after him

love this thread oliver.......so inspiring

Of Old Sat Freedom by Lord Alfred Tennyson

Of old sat Freedom on the heights,
The thunders breaking at her feet:
Above her shook the starry lights:
She heard the torrents meet.

There in her place she did rejoice,
Self-gather'd in her prophet-mind,
But fragments of her mighty voice
Came rolling on the wind.

Then stept she down thro' town and field
To mingle with the human race,
And part by part to men reveal'd
The fullness of her face --

Grave mother of majestic works,
From her isle-alter gazing down,
Who, God-like, grasps the triple forks,
And, King-like, wears the crown:

Her open eyes desire the truth.
The wisdom of a thousand years
Is in them. May perpetual youth
Keep dry their light from tears;

That her fair form may stand and shine
Make bright our days and light our dreams,
Turning to scorn with lips divine
The falsehood of extremes!

love

When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.

Default Re: The Freedom

This is very interesting approach from "The Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape From This Universe" by Maximilian Joachim Sandor. Made me thinking...


4253.Manufacturing the Illusion of Freedom

Freedom as such does not manifest itself directly. As a 'state' or 'condition' it can only be experienced indirectly through echoes and reverberations in heart and mind.

In the mental domain, freedom can be recognized through the knowledge of being free.

In the emotional domain, freedom will be expressed through the joy of tranquillity and the feeling of perfect safety.

However, the compound term 'joy of tranquillity' is an oxymoron: joy in any form is an excitation of the mind and thus defeats its tranquillity.

Likewise, a 'feeling of safety' is typically bound to present time whereas 'perfect safety' should be independent of time.

And 'knowledge of being free' is another formulation of 'not knowing of anything that makes oneself unfree'.

These are paradoxical situations and they open the door to abuse by canny tricksters.

From a technical viewpoint it doesn't matter whether these tricksters are mechanism of one's own mind or whether they are being presented by authorities which claim to have only the best intentions and which offer 'help' to all the poor guys out there.

Individual spiritual illusions and political manipulation of the 'masses' are overlapping here.

The following could therefore be taken straight from a 'Handbook of How to Delude One's Fellow Humans on a Large Scale'.

And each of the tricks that are outlined here contains enough material to write books with thousand of pages of ramifications and examples.

Most of these tricks have been 'successfully' employed by the major religious institutions and all of the governments in past, presence, and future (hence the importance of 'eternal' vigilance).

They are 'situational' traps and as such different from 'semantical' traps (as described in another chapter of PNOHTEFTU).

The bridge between both could be called 'conceptual, emotional, and symbolic associations' and they sometimes are hard to tell apart.

Why does PNOHTEFTU go into this field at all?

Because manipulators use the _existing_ aberrations of their victims - without these already existing aberrations they would be utterly helpless.

In short, these aberrations are the same fetters of the mind that are holding back a Being from realizing its unlimited potential - an overlap is therefore impossible to avoid.

Regardless whether self-inflicted, other-determined, or abused, these tricks are pervading the individual mind to such a degree that a confrontation with these issues may be unsettling to the emotional make-up of some of the readers.


Therefore, examples are mostly left up to the readers themselves. The reader's own willingness to confront may determine the depth of unveiling the amount of delusion that was, is, and will be going on wherever there is a congregation of men.
