INTRO TO HACK #2.3, Choosing or not

It takes two to experience this pic. The experienced and the one experiencing it, so seeing this pic, you have made a choice not to be one. To be one, you need to not make a choice.

As it takes more than one to experience this image, you only seem to experience it, because you have made and continuously uphold a choice not to be one. This requires much effort, whereas not being more than one requires no effort, as that involves no choice, since there is no more than that which is one, because it formless and therefore endless.

You need to do nothing to be that which is you. In fact you cannot do anything to be that, because that which is you is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to do something. Also to be something, so that which is you is not something you are being, it is that which is one, and as it is formless it is endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

»The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white – neither need you do anything to be yourself.« old Chinese saying.

In other words, there is nothing to choose. You are that which is you, and as it is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to read this article it is make-believe.

It is within this context hack #2.3 Choosing or not takes place. Because in this fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one, you seem to have choice. A very important one is how it is perceived and even more important one is to undo the belief in this fantasy as real . The latter is done by not choosing, as you actually have no choice, because there is no more than that which is one, since it formless and therefore endless.

Returning to that which is you is not about practising spaced out ideas about astral energies, aura and other subtleties by which you dissociate yourself from feeling your choice of separating from that which is you. It is about feeling the despair that this choice entails, so it is exposed that the world you appear to feel is nothing but empty space.

Choosing to see everything as symbols of that which is one will not change the appearance of the world. But as they all symbolise the same, their apparent difference makes no difference – and so there is no basis for the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

How to not choose?
You do not see the world as it is, but as what you believe it to be. So if the apparent differences in it seems to make a difference, you believe to be and have more that which is one. But by seeing all appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one, they do not appear to make a difference – and so the myriad of appearances you have invented to cover that which is one, will not work to cover it anymore but reveal it.

In other words, while you seem to be in a world of choices, it is beneficial to choose seeing everything in the world as symbols of that which is one, as this choice leads to no choice, since the apparent differences in the world make no difference, when they all a symbolise the same.

This is not to say, that you from now on should avoid choosing or be careful to choose what is right, because if you have chosen to perceive what you appear to be as a symbol of that which is one, it does not make a difference what you choose, or if you choose or not, since whatever you choose symbolises the same.
