Searching is a trap set by Google and the ego

Non-duality cannot be separated, as it is the formlessness of that which is one and what is formless has no beginning or end. Yet it is possible to believe so and to imagine a world where there seems to be more than one.

Duality is a world of separation and without it there would be no such world, so if you believe to be someone definitive there and think that you want non-duality you are fooling yourself. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The ego knows, that it is not possible to be in a world of duality, and that even though you try your best to appear as if you are, it is an ongoing struggle, because you hope to be able to fuse duality and non-duality, and that is just not possible.

Though the ego knows this, it gladly offers to assist you in your attempt to manifest non-duality in a world of duality, because as long as you are on a quest for this or something else, your belief in duality is enhanced and so is the life of the ego.

But if you in this fantasy of separation try to replicate oneness by having one law, one truth, one nation, one god, one love, one state of mind and whatnot, you are slowly but surely destroying the foundation for the fantasy, which is the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Nevertheless, the ego helps and encourages you in your search for implementing the reality of non-duality in a world of duality. And it helps you to believe, that you can overcome duality by living in the now, coming from the heart or connecting to somebody or something.

Whatever you search for the ego is happily helping you, because to search for something requires more than one, and so its life is ensured.

´Living in the now´ is not possible in a world where the oneness of time is divided into a linear imagination of past and future. But the ego is happy to help you trying to live in the now, as it knows it is purely speculative, and so its life is forever insured.

In other words, the ego happily helps you going against separation, even though its life depends upon it, because it assumes you never give it up, as that would be the end of the excitement it offers you in return for keeping it alive. But it also knows, it is not possible to be living in the now, coming from the heart or be at one in a world of separation, because in such a world everything is divided in contrasts, so it does not risk its life helping you.

Google Home is a vessel for an artificial intelligence, that if everything goes according to the plan of Google you will place everywhere in your home and be just as dependent of it as you seem to be of the ego. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Google Home, that you see in the picture, is a vessel for an artificial intelligence, that if everything goes according to the plan of Google, you will place everywhere in your home and be just as dependent of it as you believe to be of the ego. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The ego can be compared to Echo from Amazon or Google Home, which are vessels for an artificial intelligence, that just like the ego has been concealed in an appearance, so that it out of your eye can work to predict your needs, offer answers to whatever you search for and turn every whim of yours into a personalized experience of being somebody special.

But in the same way that you interpret the help from the ego, as if it is manipulating, you may also end up feeling controlled by these vessels of artificial intelligence, although it is solely a choice of yours to let the ego or these vessels shape you.

Besides to experience or realise something – whether so-called spiritual or mundane – requires more than one, so any kind of experience or realisation will enhance the belief in separation and consequently the life of the ego.

In the world it may seem as if there are changes ahead, but it can be compared to looking for water in a desert, where every newfound lake turns out to be another mirage.

To make long short, if you experience anything at all, you are living in a fantasy world. No worries, if you like you can have fun imagining to divide that which is you into bits and pieces and use them to play different roles in a fantasy world of duality.

A question often asked is »who am I?« The answer is very simple: You are nobody, because there is no ´I´. It is the ego asking this question in an attempt to prove its existence.

But if you try to fuse the reality of non-duality with the imagination of duality, you have forgotten that which is you is no different from non-duality, so the appearance of you as someone definitive in a world of duality is not real. It is something you pretend to be* – just like when you within the world of duality assume another identity to have fun playing a game.

The ego is not something separated from you. It is you – and yet that which is you is egoless, because it is the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless there is no more than that which is one. In other words, there is no ego or anything else that involves more than one.

You have invented the ego and attributed it with its own life separated from yours, so that you can blame it for what you appear to think, feel and do, and also so for choosing to appear as someone definitive in a world of duality.

Believing to ´come from the heart´ is just another way of making something that appears to be separated from you to be in charge, so that you are off the hook.
