What you pretend to be is not real

PART 1:
When having bought a plant, where flowers start to blossom after some time, you may feel as if you have given the flowers life by supporting them with water. Feeling this, it is as if the life you judge to see in the plant verifies you as someone important and alive. The same applies to have children
.

But if you do not look at the flowers and the children, as if they are there because of you, they are not an effect of you. In other words, you are not the cause of life, that seems to be around you, and so it cannot confirm you to be alive.
Not being confirmed as someone alive does not mean that you are not definable in the world – only what is definable can appear in a world defined by time and space – but that definitions do not stick to you. If you swim, you are not a swimmer, but something that swims. If you sing, you are not a singer, but something that appears to sing.
Whatever you appear to be in the world is not that which is you, because it takes more than one to be something and that which is you is no different from that the formlessness of which is one. Hence it is not possible to be in a world defined by time and space, except if you pretend to pretend be there. As what you pretend to be you are not, pretending becomes a way to confirm, that you are not someone in a world defined by time and space but the formlessness of that which is one.
If you to go to jail in Monopoly you are not locked up behind heavy walls. There is nothing inside the houses, that you can buy and there are no roads to drive on. It is all make-believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you to go to jail in Monopoly you are not locked up, because there is no jail there. And there is nothing inside the houses, you can buy, neither no roads you can drive. It is all make-believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
If you have to go to jail, when playing Monopoly, you know it is not for real. Yet may you act like it is a bad thing and say shit or something like that, because you know that is the way to respond to it.

In other words, you are just pretending to be upset, and you are doing it in the way, you are supposed to in your specific culture. In the colder countries on planet Earth, the reaction could often be intellectual and in the warmer countries more emotional. There is nothing honest about this response when you are playing Monopoly. It is part of the game, and so is every respond in the game of the world of duality.

You may want to be an authentic person in the world and meet similar ones. But persons are no more authentic than the prison in Monopoly. The prison is actually not there. It is just an idea, and it is only the belief in this idea, that seems to keep you locked up in a prison. Likewise, it is only the belief in the idea of being someone definitive, that seems to keep you stuck in a world of duality.

You are being played
You are not in the world – like in the context of the world you are not in Monopoly – and you can only appear to be there because you pretend so Nothing there is authentic. It is all make-believe. Yet it is quite fun pretending to be there if you do not forget it is all pretence.

Forgetting that you start taking it seriously, and so you believe that it is the end when the body stops to function – or that some special part of you reincarnate, go to heaven or something else that seems to keep you alive as someone important.

There is absolutely no likeness between the one playing Monopoly and the car the player pretend to drive. It can never transcend into something else, neither is it needed, as it is all going on in the player.

The universe only exists, when you look at it
Speaking of the world of duality, the player stopped playing it a long time ago. In fact, the player stopped the game in the exact same moment, it started, because the world of the player is timeless and formless, so it is not possible to play a game of a world defined by time and space. It is just some fragments of this idea, that is floating around and is experienced to be a universe with living creatures.*

Nobody in this universe, however, has been able to find the origin of it. In fact, quantum physics says, there is no universe, it only exists when you look at it, which is another way of saying, the world is in the eye of the beholder – just like the world of Monopoly only exists when you believe it is there.

It can be fun pretending there is more than that which is one.

Nobody is at one in the world or with the world, because the world is a perception, which is a fabrication in the brain and that which is real is not fabricated. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The world is a perception fabricated in the brain by splitting up that which is one in more than one. Oneness, however, cannot be fabricated, as it takes more than one to fabricate something. In other words, there is no oneness to find in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet it can be fun pretending to be in such a world – just like it can be fun pretending to be in a video game –when you know it is not real. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
If you think, that you are angry, feel love or anything else, you are mistaken, because it takes more than one to feel something, and that which is you is no different from that which is one.

No worries, it is just a silly idea, that you feel something. If you do not take it seriously, you can pretend to be falling in love and whatnot. And as you are not what you pretend to be, you are not defined by what you pretend to experience. In other words, nobody is experience anything, and that is why it is such a relief to pretend being someone, you are not.
