About

Liberated Way is written by Alex Jones, a resident of Colchester UK, with the purpose of promoting action in harmony with nature.

Liberated Way was started in 2012, evolving over time to become an established blog addressing the urgent issues of the human disconnection from nature.

Liberated Way has as its logo a bridge leading to a bright sun, symbolic of sustainability leading to personal prosperity.  Liberated Way defines sustainability as action in harmony with nature, and prosperity as abundance, happiness and health.  The message of Liberated Way is simple, act in harmony with nature, and the individual will achieve personal prosperity.

Change starts with self, rippling out into the community, and then the world.  Unless the individual is prepared to act in harmony with nature, then no positive outcomes are possible on this planet, only ruin for the individual and the human race.

It is the way of nature to become kind or cruel, beautiful or ugly, calm or angry, creative or destructive.  To act in harmony with nature the individual must see with clear eyes all the faces of nature, accepting nature unconditionally in the positive and negative situations, but working with all these faces with wisdom to achieve prosperity for self and for others.

Liberated Way hopes the many postings on this site will be useful and inspirational to readers in their efforts to act in harmony with nature in their own lives and community.

  1. Wow, thats nice to know. You mentioned in your blog post of your interest in history. So are u a historian? Where do you work?

    • I work in Colchester, UK. History is a personal interest, especially ancient history and archaeology.

    • It is very heartening to know, as far as SoundEagle could ascertain, that the Liberated Way has little or nothing to do with the Neo-Liberal Way.

      From SoundEagle, Happy New Year to you, Alex!

      May you have a new dawn and an even better beginning in 2013!

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts and stories so well on your productive blog, and for promulgating the Liberated Way and personal/individual/civic sustainability so thoughtfully and consistently. I would like to wish you a fine year in 2013, happiness and good contacts within a world in less turmoil and unsustainability if possible.

      May the new year bring you and your family plenty of happiness, good health, peace and harmony! And may the world be a better place and more sustainable in 2013!

      SoundEagle hopes that you continue to do very well and find fulfillment in whatever you enjoy doing and savouring, especially through the Liberated Way. . . . . as well as the bridge on either side.

      • Dear SoundEagle, thank you for your blessings, I wish the same to you, especially in the areas of prosperity, which to me is health, happiness and abundance.

        Liberated Way is an evolving blog which embraces sustainability together with the accumulated wisdom of many ancient philosophers and indigenous peoples.

      • You are very welcome, Alex. I commend you on your efforts and goodness as well as glowing knowledge and growing wisdom.

        I hope that there is some wisdom in my multidisciplinary blog, where an easy starting point could be http://soundeagle.wordpress.com/quotes/.

      • Thanks SoundEagle, you have put a lot of effort and content into your site.

      • The blog is really only about five months old, and much neglected before that.

      • My connection speed is not that great so I am being slowed when I navigate around your site, but it looks awesome, full of interesting content.

      • Perhaps my blog is best visited and experienced when you have access to a fast broadband connection, since it is quite laden with many multimedia features and contents, including graphics, music, animations, videos and web designs to accommodate its multidisciplinarity and pluralistic modalities.

      • That is a good strategy :-)

      • Hi Alex,

        It has been more than three months. How have you been?

        I have spent some time recently to make my website faster (as it is laden with multimedia and multidisciplinarity) and also (much) more stylish with some surprises, and there is more coming in the pipeline!

        As a guide for you, most of SoundEagle’s posts and pages should take less than three seconds to load fully (even on my two and a half year-old computer).

        You can add more memory to your computer, either an extra memory card on your computer or RAM chips (as much as 16 Giga bytes of RAM if you can afford it), plus a fast central processor unit (CPU), and a speedy broadband connection of 20 Mega bits/sec or more.

        Wishing you a happy, snappy and smooth online surfing!

      • Hi SoundEagle, great to hear from you. I will check out your channel, see if my old computer can handle your new design.

        I am in the process of adding a website to go with LiberatedWay, which will contain more indepth material than I can cover on this blog.

      • Please inform me when your new website is ready. Thanks!

        It would be advisable to use your newest computer rather than the old, as my website is still VERY intensive and packed with multimedia.

      • Will do SoundEagle. Thanks for the advice!

    I like what you have to say, excellanto :)

  3. thank you , we never stop learning .. :)

  4. This is some interesting stuff. What type of historiographical work do you do?

  5. Absolutely beautifully written, and I fully understand and find meaning in your post. John Lennon’s words come to mind – “I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.” Of course, he later realized he wasn’t the walrus at all… Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this post and will be here with you. Finally, I have found a like mind… Thank you!

  6. Alex,

    How wonderful to make the link between us via your recent comment on Learning from Dogs. Colchester has very fond memories for me. I ran my own business there from 1978 through to 1986 (Dataview Ltd) and used to live in Wivenhoe. Seems a long time ago now. But good luck with your own ventures, Paul

    • Hi Paul,
      Small world. It is great to meet someone who knows my town on WordPress :-)

      I have visited Wivenhoe a few times this year. Colchester is changing a great deal, it is one of the fastest growing towns in UK. We just missed out on gaining city status last month to Chelmsford.

      You have a great blog. Thanks for your best wishes.

      • Alex, taken far too long to reply to your own reply! My business was in Portreeves House, just by the bridge over the river. The building was very old, forget the year now, and late in the evening I used to swear that there were ‘others’ in the building. Too many years ago now!

      • If you returned to Colchester now you will be surprised how much it has changed. We just missed out on city status to Chelmsford recently. Thanks for dropping by.

  42. Hi Alexis!

    I came across your blog and I must say I LOVE it! I really enjoyed reading it and felt a ton of synergy with our project. This is in no way spam btw.

    Have you heard about the new documentary inspired by the teachings of Joseph Campbell: FINDING JOE. We are starting to reach out on a very grassroots level to influential bloggers, like you, who share our vision and would be supportive of the message.

    I’d love to send you a copy for your review. We have over 9000 fans on Facebook and we could definitely help promote your work, especially since I know our community would really benefit from your writing.

    Please let me know if you would like me to send you a DVD and I’ll rush one out.

    Check out the trailer here: http://www.findingjoethemovie.com

    Warmly

    FINDING JOE

    In the early 20th century, while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told and he called it “The Hero’s Journey.” A truly inspirational film, FINDING JOE takes us on the ultimate hero’s journey: the journey of self discovery. Using the mythological teachings of Joseph Campbell, and interviews with visionaries, the film inspires us all to discover our passions and purpose. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you just may find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think. This life changing film is now available on DVD and iTunes.

    Featuring: Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Tony Hawk, Rashida Jones, Laird Hamilton, Robert Walter, Robin Sharma, Catherine Hardwicke, Sir Ken Robinson, Akiva Goldsman and many more.

  43. Alex, thanks for stopping by. In the human vocabulary, I am most attracted to the word harmony! It is so good to find the word used in the right sense here. Sri Aurobindo, a saint, poet, philosopher and a spiritual personality, wrote in his opus The Life Divine that all problems of existence are essentially problems of harmony. He captured the entire discord of the existence in such a short statement! Essentially, if harmony is achieved everything is achieved. I am happy your blog is playing its own role in its own way.

    The universe is a system that is expressing a creative process, humanity are creative beings with the potential to express a creative process.

    I believe the same as you say and I wrote an aphorism on this on my blog. If you wish you could have a read here:http://geetaanjalee.wordpress.com/2013/07/29/human-beings/

    Keep up the good work and the beautiful vibrations you are spreading!

    • Hi Rex, thanks for your awesome comment.
      Harmony is a beautiful word that I hope all humanity may one day know and practice. We all make our small differences in the world, like ripples on the water. I wish you a good weekend. I liked your post.

  44. Can’e believe I didn’t know Colchester used to be the capital of Britain! I’m learning already :)

    • Colchester enjoyed the title of capital city until a certain angry lady called Boadicea from Norfolk burnt Colchester to the ground. Thanks for visiting and your comment :-)

  45. We are all connected. In this the age of electronic communication this is so much easier to recognize. I like what you say here. I think we share similar beliefs. I am glad to have run into your blog. Thanks for sharing your insights. I look forward to reading more.~Nancy

  46. Alex, I don’t know if you accept awards, but when I was nominated for the Peace and Justice award your name came to me. You can read about it here (just scroll to the bottom of the page) http://living-simply-free.com/2013/12/04/with-much-gratitude/

  47. It’s very nice to meet you, Alex. I live just across the Channel in France (originally from Chicago, USA; married to French pen pal; Mum to four, Grandmum to one). I love your blog and am of like mind with your principles. If you like, you can look up my blog at WordPress; it’s not as formidable in thought and purpose as yours but it’s a good way of expressing my thoughts and reflections. Keep up the good work with your inspirations and reflections.

  48. Alex, together with a friend down in Payson, AZ., I’m planning a series of essays over on Learning from Dogs about man and nature. You have a number of posts that I would love to refer to, possibly republish in full. Would you be happy with this? Naturally, all use of your writings would be linked and credited to you. Best wishes, Paul.

  49. Alex, thank you for taking time to read my blog and the “like”. I wish you the best in your life’s journey.

  50. I am so pleased that our paths have crossed today. I have already learned from you, and I look forward to future encounters.

  51. Greetings, Alex!

    Thank you for commenting on my “Into the Dance” blog post, “Why Philosophy’s Not a Waste of Time.” With your permission, I would like to quote your comment in my next post … specifically, where you say “The opposite of wisdom is the ancient word “hubris.” Hubris in the ancient sense is belief in an opinion that is contrary to how it is in reality.” Is that okay? (And in case you are wondering, the post will be a commentary on the recent “Planet of the Apes” films)

    God Bless,

    -Dan

  52. Hello from The Colonies, Alex!
    I skimmed through of your posts and your About and I really like your message. I think you could definitely apply your basic message of balance to just about anything in life. It’s just about kindness, or at least that’s what I get out of it. But it’s something our world seems to lack these days.

    Although, I admit… I would have killed Kevin had he come anywhere near me or at least run away screaming like Fay Wray. (absolutely terrified to the core of spiders)

    Keep spreading the word, Alex. Glad there are still good folk out there.

    • Hi Michelle, thanks for your comment. I am glad you enjoyed reading some of my posts. Balance (harmony) is an urgently needed quality in this world at the moment. I am easy going with spiders but a really large one in the tent when I was camping recently made me nervous, I evicted that spider to another location far away from me!

  53. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking one of my posts. I hope you will come again sometime. Blessings, Natalie :)

  54. I agree wit this completely. I am fortunate in being able to get away every second weekend to a small cabin on an island. There is no heat or electricity. I spend most of my time walking or sitting, appreciating the birds, animals and trees around me. Everything is in motion. Everything has a life of it’s own, yet it is something we are all part of. ~ Dennis

  55. Hi,

    I’m Tokoni, a poet and fellow blogger. Its a pleasure to meet you. I wanted to find out, does your blog accept guest posts? Like i said, I’m a poet and I’m looking to contribute to new blogs if you’re interested.

    Regards,
    Tokoni Uti.

    • Hi Tokoni, Liberated Way has no guest bloggers at present, and it is unsuited for poetry. There are many blogs on WordPress who I am sure will find will be delighted to work with you. Thanks for your comment.
