Formlessness has no end

You cannot change this cat in this pic, but you can change your perception of it.

Alexius has a machine, that is feeding his cats at certain times with specific amounts of food. If the cats think the food arrives there due to prayers or good behaviour, they are wrong. It is an automatic thing, and no matter how they treat Alexius, the machine is unaffected. Same thing with what seems to happen with you in the world.

You do not reap, what you sow. You have very little – if any – say in what is happening. If it seems, you reap as you sow, it is just the way things are programmed to happen. Just like in a video game, nothing can happen in the world, that is not programmed into it.

As long as you seem to be in such a program, you cannot change it. But you can change how to perceive it. You can choose to perceive what happens as if it as karma, the way of love or lessons to learn. Perceptions like these, however, will uphold the belief in you as a someone definitive in a world to be defined by time and space – and defined by time and space you are bound to end.

Nothing to choose
In a world experienced to be defined by time and space you cannot escape being defined as someone definitive. But you can choose to perceive your appearance and any other as a symbol of the formlessness of that which is life, so even though they appear to be different, it makes no difference – and when there is no difference, there is no space … and without space there is nothing – and when there is nothing, there is not something to end … so even though the appearance as you as someone definitive ends, formlessness will not end.
