How to uncover the formlessness of that which is one

By saying the kitten looks little, you set it against a bigger image stored in your memory. As time goes by you may think how big the kitten has become, when you remember how small it once was. Either way what you seem to see is based on the past.

If you get a new kitten and call it Mini because it looks like a bigger one that recently died, you will never see Mini for what it is, but an image sampled from memories of the dead cat twisted into a smaller image of Mini.

When you compare for instance new music to music heard in the past, you do not hear the new music but construct a listening experience based on past memories. This applies to all experiences compared to a previous one, and as most want their present experience to not disturb their conditioned perception of the world, they compare everything to the past in order to twist it into something they do not doubt is real.

If you seem to see a cat in this image, it is because the wavelength of light hitting the retina of your eye by reflex is constructed into a cat from past images stored in the brain. If you do not fabricate an image of a cat, you will see nothing, and so there is nothing to witness your existence. When your existence is not witnessed in the world, which includes astral planes and whatnot, there is nothing to hide that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The conclusion of this is not, that if you do not compare your new kitten to the past, you will be living in the now and see the real new kitten instead of Mini. The conclusion is, that if you do not compare your new kitten to anything, you will not see anything.

The ego demands coherence, because without it the ego does not appear to be there.

As the world you seem to experience is make-believe shaped by images from the past, there is no world to ´see´ if you do not establish something ´new´ founded on your past memories. And as the past, therefore, cannot be confirmed by the present, it fades out – and so does the one who seemed to appear via these memories. Hence there is not someone definitive to hide the formlessness of that which is one.

Looking for understanding you enhance the belief, that you are someone definitive and not the formlessness of oneness. Yet you will never understand what that is, because it is not real. Neither will you understand that which is real, since it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to understand something.

So whether you appeared to be so-called spiritual or mundane, the appearance including soul and whatnot is undone – or rather the belief that you are someone at all. Having this belief undone is not a matter of letting go, as that confirms you as someone definitive.

In other words, undoing the belief in being someone definitive is not something you can do. But, if you perceive everything experienced as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience it, everything becomes the same.* Not in the sense that everything is at one, but that their apparent difference does not make a difference.** Hence there is no separation to hide that there is no more that which is one.
