(+) Pretending is neither bad or good

You can pretend to be someone, who believes in god and you can also pretend to be someone, who does not believe in god. It does not make a difference, because what you pretend you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You can pretend to be someone, who see a cup as half full or half empty. It is the same amount you see, but how this amount is interpreted depends on the person you pretend to be.

When you are fighting with your weight for example, and you experience to be sad and frustrated, make sure to pretend, that you are a person, who has weight problems, as that cancel out the problem as real, and so it does not affect you to deal with it, as if it is real!

Feeling bad is also to play a game. You can pretend to feel happy instead if you choose so.

If there are specific characteristics of others you do not like, you have chosen to pretend being a person who does not like these characteristics. Should that turns out to be troublesome, you can instead choose to pretend being a person, who likes these characteristics.

Nobody pretends being a person, because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to pretend something. In other words, pretending to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one is just like everything else in such a world make-believe. But since what you pretend to be, you are not, this belief undoes itself and therefore the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This cannot be known as a person, because a person is not real. That is why being a person is pretended.

In the moments before death it can be almost impossible – or entirely impossible – to pretend being a person or any other things, as you need a fully functioning brain to do this. Yet having pretended to be a person until this moment is a big help when the body is about to stop breathing because it is easy to leave an illusion behind.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you have nothing to live up to you are free to pretend being a person, who lives up to the expectations of the world.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no need to search for that which is you because it is not in the world where you believe to be. Just like you are not in a game, that you are playing. Consequently, all that you can find there is what you are not. And this is exactly what you find when pretending to be someone definitive in a world of duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a role-play, you pretend to someone, who is not there. Likewise, you pretend to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, who is not there.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you are red-haired, you cannot choose to be blond instead. But you can choose, what kind of red-haired person, you want to pretend that you are – just like you can dress up a red-haired doll in different ways to change its personality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You can choose to love the person you pretend to be or not. It is your own fabrication, so if you do not love it, why not pretend to be another person. As the world is in the eye of the beholder, it is all make-believe and therefore up to you, what person you pretend to be.

For sure you know how to pretend to be a person in a make-believe world. Think about when you are on a dating site or social media, play a game like Super Mario or do role-play – or think about playing air guitar.

Pretending is neither bad or good. It is just the way you can appear to be someone in a make-believe world.

The reason why scientists have not discovered how the world was created is very simple: It was never created. They also cannot find dark matter, that they say is the missing link in proving the existence of the world. Again the reason is very simple. There is no proof of the existence of the world because it does not exist. Neither does the soul or the self, that everybody has failed in finding.

The world where you believe to be can be compared to a book of fairy tales, but just like the recording of protected compact disc cannot be replaced with a new recording on the same disc, you cannot replace that which is one with a fairy tale of a world where there seems to be more than one. Not because it is protected, but because it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

So if you experience to be a person in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are hallucinating, regardless the experience seems to be spiritual or whatnot. No worries. If you pretend to be someone there, this can easily be corrected, because where you pretend to be you are not.

Pretending to be a person, who serves others can be fun.

Alexius is not a non-teacher of the enlightenment of that which is one. Non-teaching is just like everything else something he pretends to do in a world where there seems to be more than one. That which he is, is not there, so everything he appears to be, do and have is something he pretends to be, do and have.

So what he appears to be is not authentic, but something he pretends to be. How could it be anything else, when the world is not real? Neither is he spiritual, truthful, full of compassion, love or the things those who believe the world is real claim to be or have. He is nobody. There is no ´I´ with a need to be or have something.

Playing a game like Monopoly all what can you do is to pretend, that you are a someone definitive driving around in a car. No matter the colour of your car, however, you are not there, and you never get more regardless of how much you seem to profit on others. But that is what makes it fun.

In other words, when you know the appearance of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe since there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless, it is fun pretending to be there.

Pretending to be a child, when you are grown up, is much more fun than believing to be one.

You can have as many friends as you want because if they are your friends or not is something you choose to pretend.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Be prepared that the more you pretend to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, the less real it appears to be there and the closer you are to having the belief that you are someone in such a world undone. You are knocking at the door to one perpetual present, which is not the same as the visions of eternal life since it is a concept based on the belief in linear time.

When we sit down to see a movie we allow ourselves to be deceived so that the world of it is experienced as it is real. Yet, we know it is an illusion and that we just pretend to it is real. That is what we have forgotten regarding the movie called The World.

In a relationship, that is starting to fall apart, the one who feels rejected often use the same techniques as the ego to convince the other to stay. First love and tenderness, then seductive arguments and finally penance by denying the other this and that, for example, closeness, dialogue and sex.

But when you pretend to be someone definitive, rejection just seems like one more joke in the comedy called The World. Even though you may react the same way as a person, who believes to be there, you do not take it seriously. How can you be rejected? How can you be a criminal, when you go to jail in a game like Monopoly? You cannot. You are not there. That is just something you pretend.

The need to base your experience of the world on a system like for example astrology can be compared to using crutches when a leg is broken. They are a great help in getting to go on your legs again, but when that is accomplished they should be put aside. The same applies to any belief system in the world. The way to leave astrology and other crutches behind and to start walking on your own is to not believe in the system but only pretend that you do.

Pretending to believe in a system like astrology will detach you from it and the person you believe to be according to it so that you are free to pretend being any person you may fancy.

As it requires more than one to have a problem, and since there is no more than that which is one, there are no problems unless you believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Hence the undoing of that belief is the solution to all problems. Pretending to be someone having more than that which is one is one way to do it, because what you pretend to have, you do not have.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If part of you still hope to find the truth in a world where there seems to be more than one, there will be moments of despair. But if you pretend to be someone who is looking for the truth, the search for it stands out as unreal as everything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, and so it is just another way to expose, that it is not possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Before the enlightenment of that which is one you believe, you are someone who among other things have friends. After it you have no friends – or anything else – but pretend you are someone who does. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Before you have been where no person can go, namely in the enlightenment of that which is one, you experience that you are in a world where you bike, drive, meet friends and whatnot. After the enlightenment of that which is one, your experience is not that you are in a world where you bike, drive, meet friends and whatnot, but that you pretend to be in a world, where you bike, drive, meet friends and whatnot.

What and where you pretend to be, you are not, and only that which is not there can bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

You do not need to have been where no person can go to since appearing in the world is make-believe. You can just choose to pretend to be in a world where you bike, drive, meet friends and whatnot to see what it is like pretending to be in the world instead of believing to be there.
