That would be sad, but it's not enough to refute causality. Either you abandon causality as a driving mechanism, or you accept all the consequences. You may try to add a free, independent component, but in that moment everything will collapse.
all the consequences of what ? accepting causality as a driving mechanism, if you refute that it would suggest suppressing something or denying causality and its factors to karma cause and effect and how it all functions. if we add a free independent components such as our samsaric selves who think that we / us are independent. it doesnt collapse but that is what makes it actually work. does emptiness have causality or bound by causality, karma cause and effect or not. i dont think so. if it is bound it is still free cause it is free from dualities. once you accept all the consequences that the acceptance of causality, karma cause and effect you accept your responsibility over your self, over your karma and your destiny and future lives and liberation.
causality as some independent factor of course is not even a driving mechanism, but seems to be working as an interdependent factor in reality due to many causes and conditions that might give the causes and conditions for causality to arise and be and exist and function as it is.
but what i sense from your sentence you seem to suggest that causality is an independent factor that we have no control over. it might be that regardless of ourselves our being, causality exist, but refuting it is no solution, you are just denying your situation. we have the option to work with our circumstances and our karma and direct our course in the sea of causality and thus be liberated from the bounding effect that it has on us due to karma and delusion.

I see no ground for such statement. It is enough to see the world as samsaric realm, not need to move it all to unknown container called mind.
Causality + free will model, gives a possibility to actively change reality. People strive to create a better future. You can act, stay neutral, or suppress.
In allowance model you can either strive to bind phenomena, or allow, seeing that they are already liberated, ungrapsable, unbound.

i see a duality here, samsaric realm/ world and the mind. according to my knowledge samsara actually exists only within our mind. and samsaric realm outside , mind inside is pretty deluded imo.
i have a question, what word or concept would you prefer to use instead of ''mind''? what is the container ? since everything is ''contained'' somewhere or in ''something''...
i think this causality + free will model is good. i like it and it makes reality functionable to proceed on the path.
seeing things liberated, ungraspable, unbound is good. that is the way they are and can appear but if there is still ''you'' seeing that, you are still in samsara and thus not liberated.
