Once we have acknowledged that the System actively and intentionally opposes God and Creation, we are able to focus our efforts on developing freedom from the System in order to nurture freedom for God.
Above all else, the System seeks to enslave us spiritually, but it is vital to remember that the System has only physical means at its disposal to achieve this end. Consequently, the only way the System can spiritually enslave us - and this cannot be stressed enough - is if we allow it to.
As a result, the System strives to implement worldly conditions in which we will actively and willingly deny the reality of our own spiritual natures and the reality of God.
If we spiritually capitulate to the System's physical machinations, we forfeit the spiritual resources required to resist the determination of the System's objectified world.
This disrupts the spiritual progression of freedom from physical necessity to freedom for God and inverts it into a spiritual regression of freedom from God to the un-freedom of the System and its crushing necessity.
To promote spiritual slavery, the System is currently employing an ever-increasing array of Ahrimanic restrictions and controls on human agency and freedom. Through these means, the System is conditioning us to believe that our lives are determined exclusively by forces and causes external to ourselves, thereby negating the reality of spiritual freedom and its inherent internal forces and causes.
The attempt to physically imprison us in a bleak, joyless, un-free world is an attempt to further separate human consciousness from the halcyon, joyful, free world of spirit.
It wasn't always this way. This strategy - which in of itself reveals the System's freshly-minted totalitarian nature - is somewhat new. Before the 2020 global coup, the System - which was then probably only pseudo-totalitarian or semi-totalitarian - relied on the existence of a great degree of physical freedom to encourage spiritual enslavement and soul damnation.
Rather than lock people down and terrorize them with fear, the semi-totalitarian System inspired people to run amok in the world and freely indulge in officially-sanctioned sins, mostly via hedonism, lust, greed, and pride.
As is the case with the System's current closed world strategy, the open world strategy sought to instill a denial of the reality of God and replace it with the misguided belief in the sole reality of the System.
The open world strategy sought damnation through misguided pleasure and hope; the closed world strategy seeks to ensure damnation through misery and despair.
Both strategies encourage people to become overly preoccupied with their physical, temporal selves; both strategies promote inflated egocentricity and the belief that the purpose of life begins and ends in the physical world of the System and its necessity.
In essence, both strategies work to degrade consciousness by locking people in the objectified world, thereby diminishing people's ability to effectively relate to God and to what is god-like in themselves.
The only way to avoid the slavery consciousness the System foments - regardless of how it is fomented - is to understand that we are not wholly determined by forces external to ourselves - that what is most meaningful and beautiful about us is, in fact, determined by internal forces.
These forces lie in the recognition of ourselves as primarily spiritual beings. This recognition also affirms the reality of God.
Once this reality has been re-established, we regain the spiritual resources and freedom needed to successfully resist the determination of the objectified world the System forces upon us, no matter what form it takes.
Hence, freedom from the System via system distancing is not so much a matter of physical freedom from, but a matter of spiritual freedom from, which is significantly more important than any possible physical freedom from because it sets the stage to pursue freedom for God.
System distancing is the understanding that physical freedom from the System is not a prerequisite for spiritual freedom from the System; that one can be spiritually free from the System even while one is physically un-free from the System.
It is also the understanding that physical freedom from the System alone - if at all possible - is neither required nor enough to establish the spiritual state of freedom for God.
The manifestation of freedom for God depends entirely on spiritual freedom from the System - and this boils down how we think about and understand our freedom in relation to the System.
