Go with the flow

Effortlessly living does not mean, that no actions are performed, but that they are not performed by you. All actions though cannot be effortless. It is not an effortless action to experience a world in 3D where there seems to be more than one.

The reality of life is flat, since it that which is one and it takes more than one to be dimensional, so it requires much effort to separate from it and observe it in different angles from the outside in order to fabricate an illusion of time and space.

This original effort is the reason, you seem to appear in a 3D world. This effort is upheld as long as you are motivated to be someone definitive in such a world. Often the motivation for this is to be or find something larger than life, and as life is that which is one, you assume that by having more than one you are larger than life.

There is nothing larger than life
But as that which is one is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you think that it is – otherwise you would not believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

And as long as you are amazed by all the big things, you seem to be able to have in a world where there seems to be more than one, you will choose to let the excitement deceive you into believing that more power, more money, more love, more freedom, more transcendence, more consciousness, more oneness and whatnot will make your life larger.

Appearing to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot know that which is you, because it is no different from that which is one. In other words, there is no way of knowing how to return to that which is you. Yet going with the flow you automatically return to that which is you – or rather stop believing that you are someone definitive – just like a river automatically returns to the sea.

More, however, always wants more, so you will never will be satisfied no matter how much more you become or have. When you sense this, you can start undoing the original effort of separation by ´living´ effortlessly in a world where there seems to be more than one instead of pushing your way around there. It is not possible though to be nothing but effortless in a world built on effort, but it is possible to not build more on the original effort.

Let us say you want to go on a trip. You make an effort going to the bus, but when you sit there, you do not add to this effort by pushing the trip. The bus is gonna take you effortlessly to where ever, you had planned to go. That is if the bus is going the way, you thought it would drive.

If the bus drives another way, and you do not make an effort to change its route, you will without any effort have a complete new experience, provided you do not try to compare it to past experiences. But if the bus does not start at all, and you try to push it instead of leaving it, you are practising the opposite of being effortless and thereby enhancing the original effort of separation.

In other words, everybody knows where the river goes, provided no effort is made to control it. So if not interfering with the flow you go home – or rather you find out, you never left it.

Effortlessly I hiked down the mountain in a rainforest until I could get no further due to the impenetrable plantation of thorny lianas. For several reasons it was impossible to climb up the mountain again, so when it was about to get dark I called for help. They promised to come and help me out of there early next morning, so I slept there in the night. But they did not come the next morning, because no human could walk where I had walked, they said.

After being stuck there for two days without food and water, I was without any effort of mine wired up in a helicopter, that brought me to a hospital, where friends came to visit me. Without pushing myself or anything else one exciting experience had led to another.

It was extremely peaceful staying overnight in the rainforest just lightened up by the stars above, and it was so beautiful hanging in the air between the forest and the helicopter – all for free and without any effort. A man was even wired down to attach me to the wire. I could never have planned it!

Kind regards
Alexius
