It is your own doing

You cannot see the sun as it is now. The sun you seem to see, is actually not there now. It is an old image of the sun you see, as it takes 8 minutes for the light of the sun to travel to planet Earth. It may not even be there anymore. Everything, you think, that you see now, has travelled in time to reach your eyes, so all you see is the past. To think, that anything you do or experience is happening now, is an illusion fabricated by the brain. It does not change anything to come from the heart. That is also a fabrication done by the brain.

In a world defined by time and space, everything has a beginning and end. Nothing lasts. Everything is temporary – including time. It also has an end, and so has the concept of living in the now, as it is founded on time.

The past is perceived through vague memories, the future is imagined based on the perceived past, and somewhere in between some tries to freeze linear time into an idea of now. But in the world everything takes time. A practical example is, that the sun you seem to see now is eight minutes old, as it takes eight minutes for the rays of the sun to travel from the sun to planet Earth.

The words, you think, you are reading now are from the past, as they have travelled in time from the screen to your eyes. The time the brain uses to process the words has been extrapolated so that the time delay in processing will not interfere with the thoughts or actions, you perceive to happen now. To make long short: There is no now. The now you perceive is an illusion. See also the previous article What is freedom!?

Time is a deception, that is fabricated in proportion to selected points in the universe. If other points were the reference, time would be different. The time, that generally been has decided as the right one is based on the idea, that life centres around planet Earth. But this fabricated time is not even correct, so every fourth year it is corrected with an extra day in the year.

The sun never rises and sets. The Earth moves, but from the self-centred assumption, that the universe centres around planet Earth, it is perceived, that the sun goes up and down, although it is the Earth that is moving.

Likewise, nobody comes and goes to you. It is make-believe based on the self-absorbed assumption, that everything centres around you. There is nothing around you except for what you imagine to be there.

In a world where everything seems to have an appearance of each own, you can choose to meet other appearances that just like you are defined by time and space. What appears to be you can move from one appearance of the world to another one.

But in that which is one, there is nowhere to go and no one to meet. This is very peaceful if you do not see yourself as someone special, but very frustrating if you do, because to feel you are someone special, you need to perceive there is somebody else seeing you like that. As there is no more than that which is one, this is not possible, unless you imagine a world where there seems to be more than one.

The formlessness of that which is one seems claustrophobic, as long as the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is not undone.

Yet to appear as if you are someone specific in such a world is not peaceful but upsetting. Something must always be corrected or changed in order to feel special because form and not content is what matters in such a world.

When you know, you are mistaken, you do not need to hold onto the past, and so you are free to go.

Nothing is holding you back but your wish for more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The energy from a tree, that you see in the far, feels so good that you walk over there hoping that if you hug it will share its mysterious energy with you. Nothing happens though except our arms start to hurt after a while, and so very offended – as you feel the tree has lured you into this position – you say: »Tree, stop holding me. You have entrapped by you. Set me free«

But you are not entrapped by the tree. It has no such powers. It is you who are holding onto it. Due to the thoughts you have projected onto it, you imagine it has something you need, that is gonna be yours if you hold onto it. So to be free from the tree, all you need is to let go of the idea, that it can fulfil your expectations. And the way to let go of that is to examine if it actually gives you what you expect from it.

You may expect, that the tree will give you a special kind of love, companionship, recognition or stability. But whatever you expect from it, you will most likely see, that it does not deliver that regardless how much you hold onto it. Realising this, it becomes obvious that the tree, as you perceive it, is an imagination of yours and that nothing comes from a pie in the sky – and so the need to hold onto it is gone.

As there is no more than the formlessness of oneness, it is not possible to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. So if you believe to be someone there, you better have this belief corrected.

The tree is, of course, a metaphor for whatever you feel entrapped by in your search for more in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet such a world is an illusion, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one because what is formless is endless and therefore everything.

A person, whether rich or poor, thinks something is missing, and that it is to be found further down the road, But the road ends in a loop!

A person, whether rich or poor, thinks something is missing, and that it can be found further down the road, But the road is in a loop! The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It is a general idea, that most are victims of the rich, who have become wealthy by profiting on others, and that there should be something done about so everybody can be equal. But everybody is already equal. All share the same greed, that causes everybody to profit from each other in one way or the other. There is no difference between those not having much and those who have, except that a rich person is more clever in exploiting others than the not so rich.

We built a personality, that seems to make everybody else comfortable, so that we do not feel uncomfortable about grabbing as much as possible for as little as possible at others expense.

They all want the same thing, namely to get as much as possible for as little as possible. That is why most buy the shit products from the rich persons produced by crying children in a far away country. As these products are the cheapest, they get more for as little as possible. It is because of this demand and because the rich also want as much as possible for as little as possible that products in this way.

To get more is the lowest common factor for all everybody who believes to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Nothing is ever good enough. There must be more, everybody thinks, and so they try to expand, what they have by include what is not theirs. The capitalist tries to get more money and power, the socialist to have more justice and power to the people, and those considering themselves to be spiritual are reaching for more love, stillness and higher consciousness or power.

Most assume there must be something hidden, something larger, and so they go on an endless quest searching for it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

More is the name of the game. To get more is the basis of appearing as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Most assume, that there is something hidden in the world, something larger than life and more mysterious than that which is one – and if you look hard enough, you will find it one day.

The reason persons think, that there is something hidden in the world is that to hide something is the whole reason of being a person in a capsule of time and space. The capsule appears to hide, that which has no time and space, namely oneness.

Yet the world of time and space has no power to hide that which is one. Nothing can hide that but you. It is your belief in a world defined by time and space, that appears to hide oneness.

But there is nothing larger than life or more mysterious than that which is one because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. In other words, there is no life at all in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world is an illusion, so there is nothing to find there but new illusions.

So when you stop looking for more, you will see that you already have everything, because that which is you is no different from the oneness of life.

Trying to be detached from the world you enhance the belief that it as real, as otherwise there is no reason to be detached from it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To expose the illusion of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is best not to play the game of detachment but the game of the world, which is to get more money, more power, more love, more awareness or whatever you fancy more of. Giving it your best shot, you will see, you are not more satisfied when you get more, so you do not need more.

That which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, so there is no room for more – or rather there is no more than that which is one, as what is formless is endless and therefore everything.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You would not want more if you were not missing something, so how to get what you are missing? You cannot, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless you have everything. It is therefore not possible to miss something unless you believe to be something you are not.

One way to undo this belief is to pretend to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, because what you pretend to be you are not.* Consequently, nobody is missing something or have the need for more.

If you search for deeper meaning, you are serving the ego, because it takes more than one to get something. But if you search for nothing you do not get something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you search for something, you are enhancing the belief in separation, because it takes more than one to get something. Thus what you appear to get seem to hide the formlessness of oneness. But if you search for nothing, you do not get anything, and so there is not something to hide the formlessness of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As the experience of yourself as someone definitive is based on the past conditioning that you are in a world where there seems to be more than one, unconditional love will not work for you in the world you are conditioned to see.

Neither will it work in the reality oneness, since it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one, and it takes more than one to give or receive unconditional love or anything else. That is why you prefer to believe you are in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

Love – unconditional or not – is something those who like to appear as if they are better than others fancy to talk about. They also think they can impress others by constantly being on a quest to make the world better through something that seems purer, deeper or larger.

But all this search for something better to solve feeling inferior by being special enhances the belief that causes them to do it, namely the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

But if they search for nothing, there is not something to hide there is no more than that which is one.
