About Tropic of Freedom

Tropic of Freedom is a magical place that exists within you.
Deep down inside we are all free, magical and glorious beings,
but we have forgotten this fact. We are here to remind you…

An Allegiance to SELF

Tropic of Freedom is an organisation with no allegiances to any man made cults, organistations or institutions. Our only allegiance is to the SELF. Everything we offer is to make it possible for you to come to the realisation that you are free. That all this incredible dream that is called reality has been created by you, a truth you have simply forgotten. But it is possible to remember and to reconnect with the Godhood of your being. We will do whatever we can to assist you to remember.

The Conundrum of the Gods

Cupid, reclined idly on his throne, watching the commotion around him. The Earth had finally been finished and Human Kind was about to be set free upon the planet. But the Greek Gods had one final problem to solve before setting their creation in motion.

The problem was, where to hide the ultimate truth. Where would they hide their power from humanity? Cupid, God of Love, was getting bored of the discussion, but he sat through it, grudgingly listening to his elders.

Read the Full Story

Zeus, the god of the heavens and all things, rumbled: “Why not hide it in the furthest reaches of outer space? Man would never think to search there.” The other Greek Gods and Goddesses thought about it. But, eventually, Cupid pointed out that man would learn how to build some sort of craft that would be able to fly to the furthest reaches of the galaxies and find all the answers.

So the Olympians thought for a while. Then Poseidon, the God of the seas, said: “Why not hide it at the bottom of the ocean, in the deepest darkest place under the sea?” Again after much talking Cupid, God of Love, said that man would eventually be able to adventure into and navigate the depths and find this treasure.

So again there was silence, until Demeter, the Goddess of the Earth, said: “Why not hide it within the earth? In the center of the Earth, in its very heart.” Again the response came from Eros that humanity would find its way even down near the molten heart of the earth.

Hephaestus, the Fire God, eventual said: “Well what of fire? Surely they’ll never be able to find it there?” But again came the response that somehow man would find a way to distil fire and find the essence of all things.

It was then that Cupid, the god of love and the human heart, said what of human kind itself. Why not hide it in the very last place they would look. All the other Gods asked the little God where that would be.

“Why,” Cupid said: “In their hearts, inside themselves. They would never think to look there”

Recommended Reading

One of our greatest passions at Tropic of Freedom is collecting and reading good books. There is often so much hidden in plain sight in a book, and you often get the chance to stretch your imagination while reading.

Sometimes people do find it a little challenging to decide what to read when it comes to esoteric literature. To make the process a little easier we have created an online library of titles, along with a quick overview and a little something to ponder on about each book.
