There is nothing to escape

That you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is your choice. This does not mean you can change anything in such a world. Yet you can change the choice of being there – or rather believing to be there. And as what you appear to be is the choice, the way to undo it is to not choose.** The graphic is grabbed from the web.

People chanting and/or repeating a mantra seems just as far away from the present moment as alcoholics and drug addicts. Though their use of tools are different, the purpose is the same, namely to escape the moment as it is and manipulate it into a state of happiness until they are so full of it that their (self)hatred seems forgotten.

You cannot be aware of happiness though without also being aware of its contrast sadness, so the two feelings replace each other all the time.*

In the formlessness of that which is one, there is no sadness to escape from, because it takes more than one to be sad. Besides formlessness is endless, so there is nowhere to escape, unless you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

But as they want happiness to stay, they consume more alcohol, do more chanting or more repetition of mantras until they doze off, assuming that sleeping all over again and again until they can sleep no more will make fear sadness go away. In short, they mistake heaven for being asleep.

Closing one eyes, however, will not magically transfer you to heaven. But if the world where you appear to be instead is perceived with eyes wide open, you can see what and where you have chosen to be and change that choice, if you do not like what you see.**

This is not meant to say, that you can choose to change yourself and/or the world where you appear to be, but that you can choose to have the belief that you are someone there undone.
