No change is needed to come back to that which is one [in the process of being updated]

You see nobody else than yourself, and you are always talking with yourself.

There is no more than the formlessness of that which is one since formlessness is endless. That is why you must always talk with yourself to uphold the belief in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

»You can’t go a minute without talking to yourself. It takes an incredible act of will not to talk to yourself.« Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky, who is considered a great contemporary thinker, claims that we spent 99.9 per cent of the time talking to ourselves internally. If this is the correct figure does not matter because whether your communication is perceived to be internally or externally, you never talk with anybody but yourself.

Ears cannot hear, eyes do not see, the nose does not smell anything, and the body feels nothing. Read more about that here. The world that you think you hear, see, smell and feel is just that, namely thoughts compiled from what the brain imagines it receives from the sensory organs in the body it envisions to be within. Hence, it seems to be someone who experiences to be in a material body that senses a tangible world outside of itself. See also Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

In other words, since what and where you believe in being is a fantasy of the brain, it needs to be nurtured by you talking with it consistently. If not doing that, you cease to appear as if you are someone inside a substantial body. That is why »it takes an incredible act of will not to talk to yourself,« as Noam Chomsky says.

Fortunately, you do not need to stop talking to undo the fantasy of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one and return to the reality of that which is one. All you need is to change the purpose of talking so it does not confirm a world where there seems to be more than one but that which is one.

Suppose you do not try to comply with the experiences you have of being in a world where there seems to be more than one, but perceive them as symbols of that which makes it possible to have this adventure, namely oneness. In that case, your talking does not establish you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one but a symbol of that which is one. And since oneness is formless and therefore without beginning and end, what you symbolise has always been and always will be.
