Go with the flow

Digital art like this starts with and effort for me and then I effortlessly go with the flow.

PART 1:
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 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 completely 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 Alexius hiked down the mountain in a rainforest until he 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 he called for help and was promised to get it early next morning. He stayed there overnight laying on the ground amongst lizards and whatnot. Help did not come the next morning, however, because no human could go there, he was told.

After being stuck there for two days without food and water, he was finally without any effort of his wired up in a helicopter, that brought him to a hospital, where friends came to visit him. So without pushing himself or anybody else, one exciting experience led to another.

It was extremely peaceful staying overnight in the rainforest just lightened up by the stars above, and it was intensely beautiful experience hanging in the air between the forest and the helicopter. Nothing was planned, everything was free and no effort was required.

You want to be more happy so you feel less loss.

PART 2:
The wheels of the world keep spinning because nobody ever has enough. Everybody wants to be and have more.

Not everybody though is able to adjust to the quest for more power or the recognition and respect that seems to come from getting more money, so they follow other systems than the capitalistic one. Maybe they turn into a socialist and look for more power and freedom for the people. Or maybe they become a spiritual person searching for more love, purity and higher power. But it is all the same. This desire for more is based on a feeling of loss, which is an illusion, since that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness, and as formlessness is endless that which is you are and have everything.

So the feelings of loss are just reminders, that you are not someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one – and welcomed like that they turn into joy. If not, you will participate in the quest to be or have more, so that feelings of loss and inferiority can be covered by the feeling of being more special and important. Maybe as an important politician, who is gonna change the world to the better or a highly evolved spiritual adviser, who is gonna help others find themselves – as if improving the illusion of the world will change anything to the better by or as if anybody can find themselves in an illusion.

The loss seems to appear when you imagine, there is more than that which is one by dividing it into more than one, basically, an observer and something observed. Though it is not possible to split the formlessness of that which is one into more than one, an observer seems to be confirmed as real by the observed and vice versa.

According to an article recently published in the journal Nature Communications a team split a single photon in half and transmitted it to two separate labs. Upon analysis, they found that the particle not only exists until its observed but that it never showed up in both labs at the same time. The particle you are not looking at ceases to exist.

To help somebody the same principle is at work. Although there is no more than that which is one, and therefore nobody to help, the imagination that you help somebody or are being helped by somebody enhances the belief in you as being someone definitive.

That is why there is a whole industry of gurus and do-gooders, who want to help you observe the world so that separation and therefore the feeling of loss is enhanced, instead of listening to Quantum Physics, who basically says, there is no world unless you look at it. In other words, without observing it, there is no loss, abundance or anything else you have learned about because there is no more than that which is one.
