Editor’s note: I identified a hitherto-unconscious pattern of human affective behaviour that involves some sort of ‘building up of’ one’s identity, via hopes, dreams and schemes. The pattern, which I call “identity building”, becomes particularly obvious when the structure being tacitly propped up over a lifetime suddenly comes crumbling down upon life’s various set backs, which misfortune to an actualist is in fact a blessing in disguise to proceed to, as Peter says, “actively demolish and break [it] down” via, instead, allowing oneself to Being the doing of what is happening.
The search for meaning amidst the debris of the much-vaunted human hopes and dreams and schemes has come to its timely end. With the end of both ‘I’ and ‘me’, the distance or separation between both ‘I’ and ‘me’ and these sense organs – and thus the external world – disappears. To be living as the senses is to live a clear awareness in operation … which is known as Apperception, a pure consciousness experience of the world as-it-is. —A Précis Of Actual Freedom
