That which is real never ends

Two dolphins are not enough. You want to see more. Maybe you also want them to be bigger – or to perform better. To see them on this pic may be judged as virtual and not good enough, so you want to see them in physical form. Maybe that is not good enough either, because you have ideas about direct experience, so you want to be in the water with them. And so it goes on. What is, is never good enough.

What can you learn, when you play a game like Monopoly? You can learn the rules and to be better at exploiting them for your own benefit, because the game is about taking something from others, so that you have more than them – preferable everything. When that is accomplished you have won and everybody else have lost.

The game mirrors the world, as the purpose is the same, namely to get as much as possible at the expense of everybody else. In general this is about getting more money and buying more physical stuff, but for some it is not about having more physical things but more power. And for those considering themselves to be spiritual, it is about having more peace, love, higher consciousness or whatever they imagine to be more spiritual.

The name of the game is more, but no matter how much you get you will panic when there is no more to get but everything instead is taken from you in the moment of death.

Is it not ridiculous, that everybody is participating in a game, where no matter what they do they will perish and lose everything in the end? It seems cruel. What is the purpose of it?

The dream of becoming more than that which is life
The purpose of being or having more is to forget, that it is not possible to be or have more. That which is you is no different from that which is life and life is the formlessness of oneness. And as formlessness is endless there is no more than life.

In other words, that which is you is everything, so you have everything. Hence there is nothing more to be or have. It is not possible. Yet it seems possible to think so. And manifesting this dream of being or having more as real is the purpose of participating in a world where there seems to be more than one.

That which is life does not know, that you have a dream of being in control, because to know something – or to be in control – requires more than one, and since that which is one is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But that which is life does not know, you dream about being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Just like in the context of such a world nobody knows the dreams you are having at night.

To be or have more does not lasts, because everything in a world where there seems to be more than one ends
That which is life only knows that which is one, namely itself. Everything else is illusionary. Also meaning and purpose. There is no such things in oneness. It is not needed – being one is more than meaning enough. In an illusion, however, meaning and purpose is important, because that is what makes it appear to be real.

When the purpose is to be or have more than that which is one, it seems as if something is happening, when you become or get more – also if it goes the other way – and when something seems to happen it appears to be is real. That is why, nothing in the world ever seems to be good enough. Something always must change in order to make it appear real. For this reason the weather for example is always judged to be too hot or too cold.

But no matter how much more you become or have, you will fear loosing it, because everything in a world where there seems to be more than one has an end. In the formlessness of that which is one, however, there is nothing to fear, because there is nothing to lose or nothing to gain, as formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

Purpose determines what you see
As long as you believe it is possible to be and have more you will feel limited, because there is no more than that which is one. To change feeling limited, you may think, you should stop desiring more, and instead become pure and detached from the world. But that is just another variant of more, because right away you will want to become more pure, more detached and more free from desire.

It´s the purpose of being in the world that determines, why you seem to see three dolphins in this pic. If your purpose is to have more, you may be disappointed there´s only three – or that you are not there yourself to experience the dolphins. But if your purpose is to see everything in the world as symbols of life your satisfaction do not depend on being there physical yourself or how many dolphins there are, because you are satisfied to see symbols of life.

You need to change the purpose of appearing as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, so that it is not to be and have more than that which is one. It is the purpose, that determines, how you perceive the world, so if the purposed is not to be and have more but to see that which is not you, this is what you see when you seem to desire more*. When you seem to be horny or full of love, you see this is not that which is you – neither is what seems to die one day is not that which is you.

There may be many purposes – for example uniting – that also are beneficial for not making in a world where there seems to be more than one appear as real. Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings, however, especially advocates pretending to be someone definitive in the world, because what you pretend to be, you are not, and so the purpose of appearing there will not appear to block out that which is you*.

Another purpose Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings advocate is to relate to everything in the world as symbols of life, which is the theme of hack 2.1-6. Relating in this way differences make no difference, and so it does not matter if you get more or not. It all symbolises the same, namely that which is life. The same applies to death, which is just another symbol of life. In other words, only the symbol dies, but not that which it is a symbol of.

NOTES:

  • For some to be or have more is not what seems to motivate them. Instead it is about the world and/or you becoming better – or having the feeling of becoming new through ideas of being reborn or getting new stuff. It is all the same, because there is nothing better than that which is one, neither is there anything that is more new than the freshness of being one perpetual present.
  • To think it is better to be closer to something, is no different from wanting more. It is a way to not be present and wanting to change the moment as it is. The whole world is constructed for that purpose, but you are free to choose another.
  • You can read more about seeing symbols of oneness in a world where there seems to be more than one in the other articles, that just like this one are part of hack 2.4 Life is flat or in hack #2 in general.
