Freedom beyond expectations. Or beyond comprehension?

Freedom? What freedom?

Some of you already know, some don’t. Some may have guessed it. And some of you may be shocked (for you I feel a bit sad).

I’m a naturist.

Naturism

What is naturism? The first thing many people think of, unfortunately, is what the internet throws around so eagerly. Naked people doing all kinds of things that are most certainly not safe for work.

First off: that is not naturism. Naturism, also called nudism, simply means doing your regular things but without wearing clothes.

Why would someone do that? Many people wonder about that because clothes are natural. Aren’t we all born dressed? Clothes are normal. True, they are the norm, but their point has been pushed beyond the boundaries of reason.

The boundaries of reason vs. naturism

coldWhen it’s cold we wear clothes. There are not many naturists who will go against that because cold is cold.

What goes against reason (unless you are convinced that clothes must be) is what happens when it’s very hot. You don’t take off your clothes. No, you turn on the air conditioning because otherwise your clothes are too warm. And keeping your clothes on is much better because of the shame.

Shame

shameShame is something wonderful that religion brought upon the world. The original sin, eternal shame, no way to pay off your sin, all that took hold in everyone’s mind and culture. So clothes are the answer. Not thinking outside the box, because that’s not normal. Suppose you are seen by someone else! The shame!

Because that’s something else that’s inserted in everyone’s mind. You are not perfect. You are not pretty. You are not like the impossible standards of beauty that the world put out to sell you all kinds of stuff. Stuff that should make you as pretty as the next supermodel. Who decides who’s super anyway?

So what’s up with the nekkid stuff?

Nothing. That is probably disappointing but if you’re looking for exciting pictures or tales you’re in the wrong spot. Naturism and nudism have nothing to do with sex and such things, despite the many things the internet will ‘teach’ you. Nudism and naturism are about being yourself. About feeling free. And how much more free can one be than without clothes? Once you’re used to it you experience freedom beyond expectations. And if you don’t dare to try it you’ll keep wondering about this ‘freedom’ beyond comprehension.

I leave it at this. If you agree with me then power to you. If you are curious you can ask me questions. If you decide you suddenly hate me, that’s up to you. And if you choose to ignore this post, that’s fine as well. Whatever makes you happy. 🙂

Free Software Foundation and “Secure Boot”

“We, the undersigned, urge all computer makers implementing UEFI’s so-called “Secure Boot” to do it in a way that allows free software operating systems to be installed. To respect user freedom and truly protect user security, manufacturers must either allow computer owners to disable the boot restrictions, or provide a sure-fire way for them to install and run a free software operating system of their choice. We commit that we will neither purchase nor recommend computers that strip users of this critical freedom, and we will actively urge people in our communities to avoid such jailed systems.”

The power of freedom

Freedom. What is it? For me, in a large part, it is the freedom from people. You read it right, from people, not of people. People have to do that themselves (where possible of course).

How can you be free from people? By not letting them influence you when you don’t want to. Do not let them own you by accepting their emotional power they claim over you.

So what’s emotional power? That is the way people often get to each other. “If you don’t <fill in something> then I will (not/never) <fill in something else>”. Or in more subtle way: you stay away from a nice place because someone you don’t like is going there. That is emotional power too. If you don’t go to the nice place, you miss out on that. You hand that power to the one you don’t like.

Step over that. Ignore that person. Take the power this person has over you (and perhaps doesn’t even know) and toss it away. Be you. Be free from people.

 

Oh my God

There you have them. The Christian god, or how it’s often seen, and one of the Pagan gods, or how it’s often seen. It? Not Him or He? Yup. It. For me there’s no god in that way.

Of course, there are many people who don’t agree with me. They say that there is a god and that god looks after us all, even the sinners who don’t believe in him, because he is a god of love.

Uhhuh.

Well, maybe not all of us. But still, he looks after many of us! As long as you don’t look at another god. And don’t break his rules.

Oh well. But wait, don’t Pagans have gods? Heck, I’m a Pagan, so I should have gods too, right? At least one, maybe even more!

Uhm. No. I don’t do gods. I do the power of Nature, the Universe, of which I am a part.

My point of view is mine however. If you value your god, then god be with you. Or gods, depending on how many you choose to carry. I’m fine the way I am.

Happy godding. Until you’re ready to face life and the universe on your own strength.
