… I thought I’d create a thread where we can tell everyone about the things we have done to progress understanding of the Human Condition.
… I have ordered the paperback of FREEDOM and three copies of Transform Your Life and Save the World from Amazon.
I have a couple of friends that I’ll be giving the Transform Your Life to when they arrive.
I LOVE this idea DaveH!
I love that you love this idea Tess, let’s be excited about it together :)
So, today I have been considering getting some of the FREEDOM flyers printed but I haven’t worked out what to do with them yet, so more inspiration needed.
I’ve also started reading UTOPIA for REALISTS by Rutger Bregman. I’m hoping it may offer some ideas for life within a Transformed state.
… I ordered a webcam so I can start to do video calls and video blogs and hopefully some Twitch.tv streams.
… I also started a diary of my thoughts, actions and activity towards FREEDOM.
… I made two audio recordings to practice talking about the Human Condition – I learned a long time ago that the best way to learn something is to try and teach it, then you quickly find the holes in your understanding.
… I made a poster that I can use to publicize some social evenings for people to come and discuss the Human Condition in the local community hub. I also created a wtm.swansea email address that I can use on publicity material to allow people to contact me.
Hi Dave, again all great initiatives but to create a WTM email address is giving the impression that you are an official WTM Centre, so it would be best to use your personal address on the posters at this stage. Given your wonderful proactivity and desire to be so closely involved in promoting WTM material and that you now have a webcam, the next best step would be to become a member and have a video call with us so that we can get to know each other.
Thanks WTMA, I’ll use my email for now if I put anything out. I haven’t received my webcam yet but its on its way and I’ll get my membership sorted soon.
awesome stuff Dave, and great thread idea.
I havent been the most proactive as of late, just sharing posts on instagram to try and draw attention and continuing to have discussion with those close to me especially those who already are open to the insights in freedom. I try to stay connected by reading something related to the honest in these insights to inspire honest free thought and development in my brain and to continue to build the new world within me.
A few months ago I hung around the promotional posters for “Freedom” around my university, in an attempt to give some more exposure.
Best thing we can all do is support the team in Sydney and the other centers around the world and keep as connected as we can, the new world is building and its a matter of time before all the little efforts collate into the masive tsunami of love/understanding that will inevitably flood and heal the earth and the human race :)
Sounds good Chris, I’m not a social-media aficionado but I did click on the icons yesterday to check out what’s happening out there. Phew! too much to grasp in one sitting!
So today (a loose term covering the last few days :-) …
I’ve had my webcam back and done some tests in setting it up. Things look good but I need more light!
I printed out the promotional booklet so I could start preparing a long elevator-pitch overview of what FREEDOM offers. I need to go buy a long-arm stapler now so I can bind the booklets easily.
I tidied my living room so I can start to be more organised in what I’m doing and where I’m keeping stuff. Been looking at the posters on the website and intending to get a local print-shop to make me some A2 posters for my walls.
As always I’ve been reading the website and watching more videos.
… I bought a long-arm stapler, and visited the print-shop to find out how much poster printing would cost.
Lol, it occurred to me just now that the reason I stayed away from social media is because of the inane posts about peoples breakfast and the fact their goldfish may have done a 3-inch poo!
I though I’d say that I’m posting these things to hopefully show that supporting the WTM and working towards a transformed lifeforce way of living doesn’t need massive leaps into the dark unknown. Just doing the little things at the beginning helps to move this movement forward, so keep sharing what you’re doing.
… Printed out 5 copies of the promotional pamphlet and got to use my new stapler to bind them together today :-)
Also managed to give out one pamphlet already.
… Got my copy of the FREEDOM book and three copies of Transform Your Life from amazon today, cool. Started reading one, the other two are gifts.
Also got A1 posters printed for my wall and use in any future study groups I run, plus I costed some room rental in the local community hall.
Also managed to speculatively give out three of the promotional pamphlets today. Not putting contact details on these, just letting them do their thing.
So inspiring Dave, thank you! I’m going to get some posters printed as well!
… I love my posters RJ, although I might go for A0 size next time :-) but these ones certainly brighten up my living room.
So today there’s been some coverage of vegans in the news and, as a vegan I’m the one that get’s the stick from my workmates, but in discussing the topic of animal welfare I’ve been able to slip in discussions about the Human Condition and the upset state we’re in that is causing us to treat animals in the way we do.
I was also reading Transform Your Life and Save The World in work and one workmate saw the cover and asked if it was a self-help book. Just the opening I needed :-) so I introduced him to the idea of a world where people are actually nice to one another instead of the upset crap that we currently live with. Still work to be done, but it was an opening.
Just had a wonderfully inspiring video conference call with Tony Miall and it’s so uplifting to be able to speak with another human being on a level of love and understanding.
… I invited my son and fiancee down to ‘talk about a book I wanted them to see’.
I started by letting them look at the FREEDOM book, then went on to describe all the books I had read over the past 30 years. I said I could save them all that reading and investigation by just reading the FREEDOM book they were holding.
I then told them I wasn’t going to give them the FREEDOM book, but I showed them the Transform Your Life book and said that it was a condensed version for them to start with.
I then told them I wasn’t going to give them the TYL book, but I showed them the brochure I’d printed out and said that they only had to read that to get started. They were quite appreciative when they saw the three books next to each other.
And I suggested they go ahead and download the full kindle version of FREEDOM once they’d finished it and we can talk more about it then.
I love this thread, there’s so many small things that we can do to live in support of this.
Today I met up with some friends to read and discuss Freedom.
Totally agree Roger. No-one to discuss Freedom with here at the moment but I’m working on it… small steps, plenty of patience :-)
… I arranged to meet my other son next weekend to talk to him about Freedom. (I may possibly have misconstrued the book slightly when I told him it’s like the Matrix but for real!)
Gave out my two TYL books along with copies of the brochure to two friends tonight.
Printed out some more brochures as my small stock is out! Trying to keep one with me at all times in case I come across somewhere I can drop it off.
… I am catching up with my ‘today’ updates, so a bit of a jumble today!
Had a great video meeting with the WTM last Saturday, even though it meant getting up at 4am it was definitely worth it.
Sunday I did my xmas rounds and left my brother with a copy of the brochure as an xmas present. He may never speak to me again :-) I also saw my youngest son and girlfriend and had a couple of hours discussing FREEDOM and left them with a brochure to read. Then I met up with my oldest son and since I gave him the brochure last week he has now downloaded the full FREEDOM book on Kindle and working through that.
I also sold something on ebay Sunday and packed a copy of the brochure in there when I sent it away. Got to be opportunistic when there’s a chance of sharing FREEDOM!
Monday I emailed the charity around the corner that helps ex-offenders to avoid falling back into offending and I introduced FREEDOM to them and asked if there were opportunities to start up a book-group to read through it with them.
Today I messaged our local community hub on facebook to see if there is a chance to raise awareness there to possibly start another book-group to read FREEDOM.
You couldn’t be spreading better Christmas tidings DaveH! I agree that if we keep our eyes open there are many opportunities to promote and support this world-saving information, everyone needs it so desperately. It’s the only solution to the horrific state of affairs right across the world, and what an amazing solution it is!
… I’m catching up again after a busy Christmas week, and New Year’s still to come!
I gave out three brochures as xmas presents in the end, and I still have one more person to brochure-bomb soon. This led to a long and interesting discussion on Boxing Day about the FREEDOM book, the upset state of the world and what we could do to fix it.
Despite having a few days off it was difficult to get time to review FREEDOM, but I have now got the meaning of life, Love, Integrative Meaning, God, and Negative Entropy settled in my head well enough to give coherent explanations to people when required.
So, although it feels like I haven’t done anything, I’m hoping my small steps are pouring eco-cement into the foundations of a future UK base of operation and understanding for our citizens.
… WOW, I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last posted, it seems like I’ve been constantly busy.
Although I’ve been quiet about updating my ongoing efforts, I’ve been spending the time getting more involved in the local community where I live. I figure that if I’m going to be able to help my fellow neighbors then I need to get to know them first!
I’m very happy that I have a ‘meeting’ scheduled for next Tuesday on the topic of Love, Sex and Relationships – seeing as ‘valentines’ is coming up I figured I may as well hijack it! I’m not expecting it to be a huge event as it’s in the local community hub, but a few people have said they are coming along. I will primarily be directing attendees in the direction of esssay’s 26 ( Men and Women ) and 27 ( Human Sex, falling in love, etc. )
I hope you’re all having fun in your FREEDOM endeavors wherever you are!
Another great initiative Dave. It might be quite difficult for the people attending to get their heads around such a big subject without having the fundamentals in place, which are in our Introductory Videos, particularly Videos 1-4 and also 14. If it’s the first meeting you are holding it might be worth starting there and dedicating a weekly meeting to each of those emails before moving on to big topics such as men & women. In fact you could make a meeting schedule that takes people through all the F. Essays in order.
Good advice Susan, thanks.
These current sessions are very general and give me an opportunity to show the FREEDOM book to new people. Last night’s event had a couple of attendees and we’ve decided to continue the conversation in another event next Tuesday where we’ll hopefully have more attendees.
These general sessions will, once I’ve established the ‘coffee & conversation’ events, lead to a short course of 3 evenings covering the content of the Brochure. If that is successful then I’m intending to begin a longer course following the F. Essays in order, but that is a little ways off just yet. Need to get a feel for the community and what approaches work best here.
