Perfect Freedom Is Not Free Will (pages 1151 – 1153)



There is no intrinsically free will.

There is no free ego.

Indeed, the ego-“I” is intrinsically and always
pattern-bound, un-free, and always only

seeking to be free.

The ego-“I” never achieves—nor can the
ego-“I” in fact achieve—either free will or


The would-be-active agent wills itself to act only
because it is stimulated to do so by a pattern of
conditionally apparent circumstances in space and time.

The would-be-active agent is always “caused” to
act, by the stimulating “effect” of one or another
kind, or mode, or state of conditionally evident

Therefore, the ego-“I”, or would-be-active
agent, is not primary, or self-existing, or intrinsically
free—but the would-be-active agent is an
“effect”, or a secondary, subsequent, merely
“caused”, and always limited agent.

Indeed, the ego-“I” is not a separate
entity—but the ego-“I” is entirely and only a

The ego-“I” is a secondary and subordinate
pattern within a larger pattern—a comprehensive pattern
of totality and particularity, upon which the
ego-“I” depends, and which is, itself, the
“cause” of the reaction that is ego-“I”

There is no independent ego-“entity”, no
separate and absolute ego-“I”—no
intrinsically free agent of conditional action.

The existing (or conditionally evident) pattern always
pre-determines the options of the would-beactive agent.

Therefore, the willful ego-“I” cannot act as an
independent agent, actively prior to the pattern in which it
would act—because the pattern-bound ego-“I”
can only react to pattern itself.

The willful ego-“I” can only act as a pattern
within a pattern.

The willful ego-“I” can choose among
conditionally evident options—but the willful
ego-“I” is able to make choices only as a
pre-patterned agent of pattern itself.

Therefore, the always only pattern-reactive egoic will to
act is not free will.

Fundamentally, the ego-“I” is a
pattern-slave—or a pattern-impulsed subordinate element
within a larger and choice-programmed pattern context.

The pattern itself always “plays” the egoic
agent, within an always predetermined and intrinsically
limited field of options.

In any moment or circumstance, the egoic agent can only
choose one of the given options—and the always
pattern-particular choice determines the available
action-pattern for the next moment and circumstance of
options and choices.

No matter what choice or action the ego-“I”
makes in any moment, it is always the pattern itself that
continues—whereas the ego-“I” itself is
always mutable and threatened, and, at last, it is mortally
terminated by the pattern itself.

It is always contextually self-evident to the
ego-“I” that pattern can never be
“finally” escaped, dominated, or cancelled by the
will and activity of the ego-“I”.

Therefore, from the “point of view” of the
conditionally arising ego-“I”, it is intrinsically
self-evident in the context of any and all conditionally
arising “experience” that, while choosing among
pattern-evident options may continue to be possible for an
indefinite life-period of time, the only “final”
option for the egoic agent is to either
“self”-destruct or remain inert—because
pattern itself is inexorable.

Suicide and utter passivity are the only
“final”—and, in any case, merely and entirely
reactive, seeking, enslaved, and utterly
ego-bound—options for the intrinsically pattern-bound

However, there Is Always A Perfect Option—Which is
neither ego-bound, nor pattern-bound, nor reactive in and to
the intrinsic dilemma of ego-versus-pattern here.

The only Perfect Option is to transcend pattern itself,
by searchless “self”-understanding and by the
intrinsic transcending of the “self”-identity of
“active agent”—or the ego-“I” of
“point of view” and of the pattern-stimulated will
to act.

The only Perfect Option is egolessness
itself—intrinsically transcending all pattern-bondage
and all seeking for freedom itself.

The only Perfect Freedom Is Intrinsic
egolessness—The Reality-State That Is Always Already
Prior to both pattern and action.

Therefore, you cannot, by any kind or mode or time or
place of will and action become free.

You can only Be Free.

So Be It.
