You cannot change the world, but you can change your perception of it

Appearing to be someone living in a capsule of time and space, you do not have the power to change the events that seem to happen inside it. But you have the power to choose how to perceive them, so if you choose a light and happy perception or not is up to you.

Not believing to be someone in the world, you instead pretend to be there. What and where you pretend to be has no power of its own but is powered by that which makes it possible to pretend something that is not real.

What and where you pretend to be, you are not!

Choosing a light perception you do not feel the limitations of the capsule to be real, and so it easier pretending to be there instead of believing to be there. Yet we cannot appear to be in a world defined by time and space without pretending to have a body and a personality to govern it.

My hands, my legs, my eyes and so on are tools, that my personality uses to navigate in the world. But it does not identify with these tools and does not care much if some of them have to be replaced along the way.

When you do not believe to be someone specific, the personality can easily change and for example appear to be humble, if that is the way to obtain a loan in a bank, or to be angry if that seems to work better. It is just different attitudes, and not that which is you. The personality is a tool, that can be used in many ways. Unfortunately, it is mostly used to make you appear as if you are someone very special and real.

If this is what you want, you will hold onto the specific thoughts, feelings and behaviours, that you think will make you more important or loved and hide those that seem to belittle you, so the resulting image of you appears to be someone insignificant. This can be compared to playing a video game and only tell your friends of the heroic things you accomplished in it.

But if you do not care about being great or someone at all, the personality is not seen as a tool for promoting a specific image of you as if it is real but for pretending to be in a world encapsulated by time and space, though that which is you is not there, because it is not different from the formlessness of that which is one.

That which is one has no room for someone at all, as it requires more than one to be someone. It is, therefore, only in a world where there seems to be more than one there appears to be someone. But since oneness is formless and therefore endless, a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe, and so is experiencing to be in such world. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

The famous sentence to be or not to seem to imply, that it is better to be than not to be. And this is indeed so if you want to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one, as you cannot be without another being witnessing your being, whereas not to need no witness and therefore no more than one. As Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are about that which is one they are about not to be.

You cannot appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one without relating to it, and doing so you appear to be part of it, unless you relate to it as a symbol of that which is one, or as if relating to it is something you pretend to do, or that you do not perceive relating to its apparent differences make a difference. In those cases you appear to be in the world, but not as part of it.

You need not to be saved from a world where there seems to be more than one, because you are not there. It is not possible, but it is possible to believe so, so undoing that belief is all you need. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You need not be saved from a world where there seems to be more than one, because you are not there. It is not possible, but it is possible to believe so. But as it takes more than one to be free from something and there is no more than that which is one, undoing this belief will not set you free, but that nothing seems to hide, there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Your money will not save you, neither will sex, love or romance. And your parents, precious children and flat-screen TV cannot help you. Nothing can help you. Fortunately, help is not needed – just like you do not need help if you must go to jail in a game like Monopoly, because you are not there. It is not possible, neither is it possible to be in a world where there seems to be more than one because that which is you is no different from that which is one.

In other words, you are just pretending to be in such a world. In case you have forgotten that and believe to be there, all that is needed is to undo this belief.

Maybe you give out hate to help yourself see, it is the denial of your own self-hatred, that keeps love at a distance. The image is grabbed from the web.

The way that you perceive, what seems to come to you from others is not caused by them but you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Giving and receiving happens simultaneously.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Far from all persons will respond to you in the way, that you expect. Yet the response, that you perceive to receive correlates to what you gave out. So if you do not like what you perceive to receive, you must either change what you give out or the perception of what you receive. The latter is the easiest, and as giving and receiving is the same, by changing the perception of what you receive you also change your perception of what you gave. You can of course only give what you have and as that is what you believe to be, by changing the perception of what you receive, you change what you believe to be.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What you give out comes back to you – not in another lifetime but in the very same moment. This is not to be understood in a physical way, as if you give money you will get money. It is the intention behind giving money, that returns to you immediately. The sense of giving and receiving is happening in the mind, so if you want to experience being loved, love must be the content of what you give. In other words, if you give what you want, your perception of what you receive will be, that you get what you want.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Love and hate are two sides of the same coin.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Whether you are aware of it or not, you always give what you want, so if you perceive to receive hatred, that is what you want. Maybe because you want to see the hate, you have hidden in yourself, so that you can have and give love, because without hate you cannot see that you have love.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A world of duality can only be experienced due to contrasts, so the higher an experience you want, the lower you have to be willing to go in order to experience it. There is no pure love without dirty dancing, and there is no bliss without depression. Meditation, chanting, aura-transformation, you name it, will not change that.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As the world is experienced through contrasts, you cannot have one without the other. When you accept the hate you seem to have, you have paved the way for also seeing the love that you have. And seeing that you have love, you can give it. Doing so, you perceive that others respond to you with love.

How you perceive this article does not tell anything about it, but about what you believe to be, so if you do not like the way you perceive the article, it is in your own best interest to change your perception.

Those you experience to be in a world where there seems to be more than one are appreciated in accordance with how you have judged them. If they have traits in their personality that you do not like, they appear to upset you, but that is only because of the way you have chosen to perceive these traits.

Though many agree that the world is in the eye of the beholder, they still blame others for their state of mind instead of acknowledging that what you see is what you have, since you cannot see what you do not have. Hence what you receive is what you are.

So when you have love in your eye, you perceive everybody with love, and no matter how they respond, love is what they give you because you receive what you have.

Loving everybody does not mean, that you must love everything they do or say. In the case of Alexius, for example, he dislikes, that the cats living with him bring home half-dead lizards and rats. Yet it does not change his love for them.

You already know what it feels like to only love selected parts of the world. If you compare that to loving it all, you know what is in your own best interest.

To make long short: You choose how to perceive the world, and if you look at it with love, you cannot miss love, because what you have is what you give, and what you give, you receive.

That the world is in the eye of the beholder does not mean that you are in charge of what happens in the world but of how you perceive it. In other words, if one of your legs is missing no visualisation will materialise it. But depending on your perception, you can be just as happy with one as with two legs.

It is your choice, how you want to perceive a message – and the choice reveals how you have chosen to see yourself.

It is your choice, how you want to perceive this image. And this choice reveals more about you than the image. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It may seem as if you are not always in charge. And you are partly right: Things happens that you have not chosen and cannot change, but you – and only you – choose how to perceive those things – and you can always choose to change this perception so that you feel better.

If you cannot find your keys and have forgotten they are in your left pocket, it does not mean, that you did not choose to put them in your left pocket. It only means you have forgotten, you made that choice.

Nobody forced you to read this article. You made that choice. You cannot choose when the article is over though. It is my choice and I choose to finish it now.

This you can choose how to perceive!

If you are watching a movie, and there is something in the movie, that you do not like, there is nothing you can do to change it. The movie is already made from the beginning to the end. Yet you can change the way you perceive it – also the parts of it, that seems to be in the past.

The same applies to how you perceive the world. Any moment, including past ones, is a perfect moment when you choose to include everything in it, because if nothing is excluded the apparent difference between good and bad makes no difference.

Hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment and hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss is especially about inclusion versus exclusion.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not like what you perceive, you do not like yourself, because your perception is based on what you think you are. Consequently, it is in your own best interest to choose a perception, that makes you feel good.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

No need to visit the past to find your forgotten choices. You just need to know, that if you are not feeling groovy, you have made a wrong choice and it is never too late to change it.
