Sally Edgar’s Transformation
In Freedom Essay 55 Tony Gowing described the all-effective, all-satisfying and completely wonderful Transformed Way of Living that solving the human condition makes possible for all humans. Today we are presenting a further personal affirmation from a WTM Member of the wonder of the transformed life.
This F. Essay features Sally Edgar’s account of her transformation:
This video of Sally’s affirmation (and affirmations from other WTM Members) can also be viewed at . The transcript of this video is provided below, and also appears in (alongside transcripts of the other affirmations).

Before including the transcript of Sally’s presentation, this box contains a summary by Jeremy Griffith of the transforming situation humans are in.
Now that the great goal of the whole human journey of conscious thought and enquiry has been achieved and we have found understanding of our conflicted and distressed human condition (see F. Essay 5), all the old retaliatory, defensive and insecure upset behaviours of anger, egocentricity and alienation that we had to employ to cope while we couldn’t defend ourselves with understanding are no longer needed. They are obsoleted, brought to an end. In fact, with this knowledge of the human condition now found, it would be an act of total irresponsibility, indeed madness, to continue down that old, insecure, defensive and destructive competitive, selfish and aggressive road. The truth is, there is nothing in the way now of every human taking up a magnificent, unburdened, human-condition-free, cooperative, selfless and loving transformed life!
Most significantly, this new Transformed Lifeforce State (TLS) and its way of living is fundamentally different to all the previous ways in which we abandoned our upset life and lived instead in accordance with more cooperative and selfless principles. As is described in F. Essay 29, there has been a progression of increasingly dishonest, deluded and dangerous ways of adopting a more cooperative and selfless way of living — from religion to socialism/communism to New Ageism to feminism to environmentalism to politically correct post-modernism. As was explained in that essay, what was increasingly dishonest, deluded and dangerous about all these movements was that they weren’t just promoted as ways of restraining upset, but as actual solutions to the psychologically upset state of our human condition. As the Adam Stork story in F. Essay 5 is finally able to make clear, we humans had to be prepared to suffer becoming upset angry, egocentric and alienated while we searched for knowledge, ultimately for self-knowledge, the redeeming, reconciling and rehabilitating understanding of our ‘good and evil’ conflicted human condition. Therefore, dogmatic insistence on cooperative and selfless behaviour oppressed the freedom we needed to continue the upsetting search for knowledge. And to claim that dogmatic compliance with cooperative and selfless behaviour was the solution to upset behaviour was pseudo idealistic because real idealism depended on continuing the upsetting search for knowledge until we found the rehabilitating understanding of the human condition. Understanding not dogma was the answer; it was our species’ goal and destiny. However, once that relieving understanding of the human condition was found, as it now has been, this situation fundamentally changes. Suddenly it’s no longer pseudo idealistic to insist on cooperative and selfless behaviour, because the upsetting battle to find understanding of ourselves has been won. So while all previous forms of abandoning our upset life were fundamentally irresponsible and pseudo idealistic, abandoning our upset life is now not only legitimate, it is the only way to live. (F. Essay 39 presents a significant discussion by Jeremy on the immense danger of left-wing dogma, and how the legitimate transformation that understanding of the human condition makes possible is the only way to save Western civilisation, indeed save humanity. The differences between the Transformed Way of Living and all other previous ways of abandoning our upset life are also fully described in chapters 9:5 and 9:6 of FREEDOM.)
YES, THE IMMENSE EXCITEMENT AND RELIEF OF BEING EFFECTIVELY FREE OF THE HUMAN CONDITION — the joy and happiness of being liberated from the burden of our insecurities, self-preoccupations and devious strategising; the awesome meaning and power of finally being genuinely aligned with the truth and actually participating in the magic true world; the wonderful empathy and equality of goodness and fellowship that understanding of the human condition now allows us to feel for our fellow humans; the freedom now to effectively focus on repairing the world; and, above all, the radiant aliveness from the optimism that comes with knowing our species’ march through hell has finally ended and that a human-condition-free new world is coming — CAN NOW TRANSFORM EVERY HUMAN AND THUS THE WORLD.
From being a human-condition oppressed and depressed alienated person, you and all other humans can now be TRANSFORMED into redeemed, liberated-from-the-human-condition, exhilarated, ecstatic, enthralled-with-existence, empowered, world-transforming LIFEFORCES. This exhilarated, ecstatic, enthralled-with-existence aspect is the ‘Life’ in ‘Lifeforce’, while the empowered, world-transforming aspect is the ‘force’ in ‘Lifeforce’, so LIFEFORCE covers both the personal benefit and the benefit to the world in one word. Such is the Transformed Lifeforce State or TLS!
F. Essay 17 explains how everyone’s lives can now be immediately transformed, while ‘The 4 key Transformation presentations’ on our website’s Transformation page provide a step-by-step description of the transformation process.
The transcript of Sally Edgar’s transformation
Hello everyone, my name is Sally. I would like to speak about my journey with the Transformation process and how all-powerful the change of heart it brings about in humans is. Every day we live with the golden truth of Integrative Meaning we learn and appreciate more about the development of humans and their resulting, understandable upset condition and naturally we also learn more about how that has played out at a personal level [see F. Essay 21 for an explanation of Integrative Meaning]. As I nurtured and loved this process along, I had some realisations about my life as a resigned human and I saw very clearly how necessarily and understandably how I had to live, until now, under the duress of the human condition. While these realisations are about my personal story, I wanted to share the main one with you in the event that you might be able to relate and that that somehow might help you on this exciting journey on the Sunshine Highway that we are all on to the TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE and our freedom from the chains of the human condition, that state of despair, confusion and agony of not knowing if we were good or bad.
I wanted to preface that the only reason I was able to gain this clarity was through making the fundamental decision to live my life in support of and for this information and project instead of continuing to live out my resigned strategy [see F. Essay 41 about Resignation]. And to further preface how wonderful and exciting that this is actually all possible now due to the awe-inspiring scientific, biological breakthrough that Jeremy Griffith has been able to provide about the issue of the human condition [see F. Essay 5]. I really can’t say it any better than these words which feature on the World Transformation Movement’s letterhead: ‘Finally, the Dreamed-of Biological Explanation of The Human Condition that Ends Our Species’ Underlying Psychosis and Transforms The Human Race’.
Also, because I’m going to talk about my personal situation I thought it’s important to reinforce what Jeremy says in Section 2:1 of Freedom Expanded: Book 2 [see also chapter 9:7 of FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition], about how we, as the transition/conduit generation need to act responsibly with this information and why the TRANSFORMED STATE is so powerful and necessary. To quote, and Jeremy has underlined it: ‘Very importantly, while we each should investigate these understandings of the human condition sufficiently to verify to our own satisfaction that they are the understandings of the human condition, we shouldn’t investigate them to the extent that we start to become overly exposed and confronted by the truths they are revealing.’
The first important step for me was to get proactive. I actively decided to let this information in, by which I mean I actively decided to use my brain to really understand what this information is saying and applied that to my life. By this I mean that I decided to trust my understanding and knowingness that this logical, biological explanation of the human condition is the truth about humans, that while we humans appear to be bad, destructive UPSET forces, we are in truth fundamentally worthwhile — our UPSET developed for a very good reason but it doesn’t define us or the meaning of life — we are worthwhile and, as we can now understand, the meaning of life is to be selfless and loving. I thought it was important to explain here why I have used the word ‘trust’ because it can get confused with faith when this information is the opposite to that — it is rational, testable, logical biology. As Jeremy explains throughout his work: ‘The challenge is to think, question and understand, a process that is the very opposite of abandoning thought and deferring to some form of dogma, faith or belief’ (A Species In Denial, p. 74 of print edition). And that this information is ‘brain food not brain anaesthetic’. Our false, resigned framework is so powerful and it was something we have trusted and had to hold onto since resignation that using the word ‘trust’ helped me to recognise that while previously in that resigned framework I was trusting a lie over the truth, now in the TRANSFORMED STATE of mind I have switched sides effectively to trust the truth over the lie. Anyway this focus allowed me to shift from someone competitively and defensively thinking that the TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE was a place to ‘get to’ in order to prove my goodness and worth, to someone drenched in relief seeing that the TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE is a secure logical response to recognising that the insecure-driven human condition paradigm is over, allowing me to actually accept my upset state and then focus outwardly on repairing the world now, beginning with taking this information to the world.
As Jeremy so beautifully explains in these three extracts from Freedom Expanded: Book 2, Section 2:1, about The TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE:
“You can know now that all the upset in ourselves and in the world from two million years of humanity’s heroic journey through ignorance is explained and defended. With that knowledge we are now free to leave the issue of all that upset behind as being dealt with and focus all our attention on developing a human-condition-free new world. The relief of being able to leave the issue of our upset state behind as dealt with and the excitement of knowing a human-condition-free new world is coming and that we can all fully participate in bringing that about is so absolutely incredibly relieving and exciting it will TRANSFORM all humans. From being a human-condition oppressed and depressed alienated person all humans can and will now be TRANSFORMED [and I love this bit] into Redeemed, Liberated from the Human Condition, Exhilarated, Ecstatic, Enthralled-with-Existence, Transfigured, Empowered, World-Transforming Lifeforces. This description can be distilled down to Liberated from the Human Condition, Transformed and Empowered Lifeforces, which can be further distilled down to Transformed Lifeforces. This Exhilarated, Ecstatic, Enthralled-with-Existence aspect is the ‘Life’ in ‘Lifeforce’; and the Empowered, World-Transforming aspect is the ‘force’ in ‘Lifeforce’, so Lifeforce covers the personal benefit and the benefit to the world in one word.”
“Now that we have the truth up all that matters is that it is kept alive and that it is disseminated to all people, because it alone can heal the human race and save the world. All everyone must do now is support the truth about the human condition and it will achieve everything everyone has ever dreamed of. If we look after this information it in turn will look after the world. That is the mantra of the new world that understanding of the human condition brings about.
Having grown up in ‘the dark’, without understanding of the human condition, the priority of existing generations is to get these insights to new, fresh generations so that they won’t have to adopt all the artificial ways of coping with the human condition — all the dishonest denials, all the egocentric means of seeking compensation for the injustice of being unfairly condemned, and all the angry retaliations needed against the unjust condemnations — that existing generations have had to employ. We, the existing generations, are now the conduit generations: the generations who will connect the old dead world to the new living world.”
“The new TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE is not only all-powerful in its ability to heal the world, it is also all-exciting. When yesterday the prospects for the world looked hopeless, suddenly — and I have said this in every major document I have ever written — from one end of the horizon to the other an army in its millions will appear to do battle with human suffering, its weapon understanding, and its outcome world reparation.”
So to get to my main realisation that allowed me to access the TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE. This realisation is my version of the honesty that Jeremy explains is key to being able to truly consider letting your selfish resigned way of living go and take up the TRANSFORMED STATE.
Until I was able to use the full defence and therefore let go of my resigned way of defending myself, I was unable to see that I was actually feeling criticised by this information. This really astounded me because I knew the defence of our upset that this explanation provides is the very thing that liberates us but I realised that I wasn’t really embracing that defence on a deeply personal level. Our resigned states are necessarily so insecure and sensitive to any perceived criticism that they can wrongly feel that the truth about the human condition is just another attack, is further criticism and confirmation that we are bad. Being able to see how I was misreading the liberating defence as more criticism from the world that I felt I had to defend myself against was my unlocking point. I was not seeing that yes this truth is naked but it is also dignifying. I was blind to the fact that I was actually being confronted by the information. How much we can’t cope with confronting the extent of our upset is something that Jeremy constantly warns us of and what the TRANSFORMED way of living solves for the transition generation [see F. Essay 18 in which Jeremy explains the so-called ‘Mexican Standoff’ this confrontation creates, and the all-exciting way to overcome it]. The TRANSFORMED STATE allows us to productively support this information without overly confronting our upset. Trying to support this information while continuing to try to convince yourself that you are not an upset human is an extremely difficult and illogical thing to do. I know very well. But it’s incredibly exciting when you realise that you and all humans don’t have to live that way anymore. Accepting your upset state is the most liberating decision which frees you up and gives you access to live in the all-out excitement that the future now holds.
Initially I didn’t stop and use my brain and let this information in to defend myself. I didn’t use it to say in my case, ‘Yes I am an angry, defensive, doubting, indecisive woman who is very strong and has been at war with the world, but there’s a very good reason for all of that and it had to happen, BUT I can truly let it all go now because the fight to prove we are good is over, it has been won and I can now relax, rest and put my strength behind the information that has made this remarkable, fabulous situation now possible so that people today and in the future can see that they too can at last be truly happy and at peace with themselves. We can repair all the pain and upset that has plagued us and the future will be free of the human condition and the agony, trauma and terror of not knowing if we are good or bad. Not being loved as we expected and deserve to be loved and therefore not being able to love others.’
Now I and all humans can love the way we had to live, the way we survived in the world without this precious understanding, but it is SO OVER and it doesn’t define the way we live now. The TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE is truly the best, most powerful technology the world has or will ever see for our transition generation. And even better than that is that it is SO SO EASY, all you have to do is use the truth instead of the resigned lies and as Jeremy has said, ‘We are rational creatures, so when all the rationale, all the logic says there is only one response we can make, namely letting go of our angry, egocentric and alienated way of living and taking up the TRANSFORMED WAY OF LIVING, then that is the response the human race will take…’ (in conversation, 2012). It all comes under the ‘of course that was life under the duress of the human condition’ banner and none of it matters now. All of us have a choice now. We can choose to remain in the vortex of terminal alienation, as depicted in Jeremy’s amazing The Abyss of Depression and the Sunshine Highway to Freedom drawing (pictured below), or we can wrap it all up in a golden sheet, tie it with a golden bow, put it in a golden box and place it in a golden hospital, give ourselves a really big golden hug and walk across the golden bridge of the Sunshine Highway to the sun and live truly defended and understood and live for and in support of this information to bring about a golden, human-condition-free present and future for humanity. The information explains the fundamental misreading we all have as resigned humans — that we are good and not bad. For me personally I realised that the world wasn’t against me, that no-one was attacking me, that I wasn’t a bad person for being an upset person and understanding that freed me from that torment and made me so happy. If an angry, defensive, doubting and indecisive person like me can be happy then imagine what’s possible for all humans. What a blessing. Thank god for this life-saving information. It is all that matters and humanity can move onward, forward and upwards. To draw on a wonderful analogy that [WTM Member] Tony Miall has told me and that I love, that was my particular bowl of dirt and gravel that I have been chewing my way through thinking it was ice-cream when in fact the real ice-cream was sitting right under my nose. [See F. Essay 68 for Tony Miall’s Transformation affirmation.]
An aspect of all this that absolutely thrills me is the fact that the pain and horror of the human condition stops with us, that is our job, our wonderful privilege and legacy. The destiny of the human race is NOT terminal alienation, it is FREEDOM from the horror of the human condition — humans will NEVER have to live in agonising terror of the fear that we are bad. Because of what Jeremy has been able to do, and with our TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE support of that truth, this will happen and it has to happen, now, urgently. We are so lost, so alienated from ourselves but that all ends now, simply with changing our state of mind. [See F. Essay 51 for analysis of the ‘endgame’ state of alienation the human race has reached.]
So let’s celebrate!! I love watching the affirmations, and in particular get a real kick out of The Denialators’ two songs that are on the top of the homepage as part of the Introductory Video Series [the WORLD TRANSFORMATION MOVEMENT has its own band called The Denialators that play at our various functions], so I thought it might be a good way to end with their ‘Understanding is the Key, we were dead dead dead but now we are FREE FREE FREE’ song:
The Door’s Wide Open
How sweet is the morning / After such a long night / The relief drains my body / With this awesome spreading of light / The shadows are lifting / The horizon is clear / I want to scream to the heavens / A new time is here
The door’s wide open, / Understanding is the key / The door’s wide open, / Understanding is the key / We’ve been so dead, dead, dead / But now we’re FREE, FREE, FREE
The sun has now risen, / It is strong bright and clear / I know the whole story / I’ve got nothing to fear / The shit’s been unravelled / The battle’s been won / It’s all been made sense of / The new time has begun
But the battle’s still raging, / People don’t know / It’s gone on so long, / It’s hard to let go
But the door IS wide open / And the future IS clear / The party starts NOW / We’re gonna blast out of here
The door’s wide open, / Understanding is the key / We’ve been so dead, dead, dead /
But now we’re FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE / We’ve been so dead, dead, dead / But now we’re FREE, FREE, FREE.

[After Sally’s presentation, the following discussion took place with WTM Member Lee Jones]
Lee Jones: Sal, I just wanted to say that was just awesome and I loved how you finished with The Denialators videos and also just getting up in front of everyone and sharing all that with us, it was just great. There is just so much in what you said to think about and I’ve noticed that with all the affirmations of the TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE. I have started to actually print out the transcripts, because each time, and even watching them again there is just so much in them. But just something that came to mind when you were talking was, there is a quote in [Jeremy’s book] The Great Exodus where Jeremy just says something like, ‘Understanding the human condition…allows us to love ourselves and each other fully, equally and without reservation.’ (The Book — The Great Exodus, 2006, Part 18, p. 90 of 222). I just think that is an amazing quote because we have never had the truth that explains and defends us and in our resigned state, like you said, we don’t actually let that truth in and let the information carry that burden and take care of who we are.
There was so much in what you said but another thing you said that I really liked when you were talking was about how this is such a powerful technology and you said how you do have to be proactive with it and you have to go to the information, and that really hit home to me. Because, in the resigned state, from being a resigned human you see the truth as hurtful and oppressive, and to get past that misreading, there is always a resistance about going to the truth. But if you go to the truth, and actually start engaging in it and get proactive with what it’s saying it actually comes to you and holds your hand.
The other thing that I liked, you said something like our false resigned framework is so powerful and it’s something that we have had to trust since resignation. And you talk about that you have got to have that mind switch 100 percent from trusting that resigned state to trusting the information and what it says. I just loved that too and it was all through the affirmations too. So that was great.
And I think the last thing in all of that was the point you said something about ‘I was misreading the liberating defence as more criticism from the world’, and then getting beyond that and actually just accepting rather than fighting the reality that you are an upset human and letting the information in. Anyway I am just rambling a bit but I just thought it was awesome so thanks heaps, Sal!
Sally: Oh it’s this information and how powerful it is and the TRANSFORMED LIFEFORCE STATE is just that all-powerful technology that we all live now. That’s how we live now with it in the world and it’s just fabulous and it can solve all of human pain and upset.
Lee Jones: Yeah, that’s the thing that I was thinking. I just remember when I was a little girl before I got taken out with all the preoccupation and having to resign myself, all I wanted was for that suffering to end in my family, and the fact that we can do that now is just incredible. And that every human deserves this you know. It’s for everyone.
