Everything that appears to be more than one is an illusion

Life is the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness has no dimension everything dimensional is lifeless. Well, it does is not there at all, because what is formless is endless, so there is no more than that which is one. In other words, if you are experiencing a dimensional world where there seems to be more than one you are hallucinating.

The oneness of life can be compared to the one line in the above animation, and a world defined by time and space to the tree, that it seems to create.

But there is no tree. It is an illusion. If you look closer, you will see, everything in the tree are fragments of one line, that are added together in such a way, that they appear to be different and not just the same line.

That everything appearing not to be one is an illusion does not mean, that you should look at everything a world defined by time and space as one. As long as you yourself appear to be what you are not, namely someone who differs from others in a world defined by time and space, it would be an illusion to look at such a world as it is the formlessness of that which is one..

A world defined by time and space is a world of separation and since you appear to be there, you have chosen to be separated. Yet this choice confirms the oneness it denies, because without it you could not separate from it, so everything that appears to be separated from that which is one is a symbol of it.

If you want to undo, what is not one, you acknowledge the separation, you seem to be part of, but instead of relating to everything as it differs from each other you relate to everything as different symbols of the same, namely that which is one. The more you perceive what seems separated from that which is one as symbols of it, the more you are having the belief in being separation from that which is one undone.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings also suggest hack #1.5 Pretending to be a person and Hack #1.6 Pretending is a way out of duality, as a remedy to have what is not one undone. The more you pretend to be a person instead of believing to be one, the more this belief is undone, because what you pretend to be you are not.

Some think, they can escape the sense of separation and be in a mix of the world and something spiritual by hugging a so-called spiritual teacher, by chanting, giving unconditional love or similar childish ideas. The idea is in itself a contradiction, as spirit is formless and the world is form. One exclude the other. Besides adding two things together does not make one, and it is only in the world of separation, that it seems two things can be merged. There is nothing to merge in oneness.

Some think, they can escape the pain of separation by fusing a world defined by time and space with what they consider to be spiritual by hugging a so-called spiritual teacher, or by chanting, giving unconditional love or similar spaced out ideas. As spirit is formless and the world is nothing but form, they cannot be fused. One exclude the other. Besides adding two things together does not make them one. It is only in the world of separation, it seems that two things can be merged. There is nothing to merge in the formlessness of oneness, as there is no more than that which is one.

Whatever you choose makes no difference, as long as the purpose is to undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Unfortunately most so-called spiritual ways do not have this purpose. Instead the purpose most often is to make appearing to be and have more than that which is one more bearable, so it seems you can uphold your belief in separation and still be at peace. Such ways are not undoing the belief in what is not one but enhancing it in order to hide that which is one behind gibberish talk of bliss, stillness and other things that requires more than one to experience.
