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, that also has an end … and so has 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.

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.
