The peace of that which is real

The previous hack, hack #2.3 Life is flat, is about how a world where there seems to be more than one seems to hide that which is one. This does not mean, however, that a world where there seems to be more than one can hide that which is one. Nothing can hide it, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Hence a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe – just like within the context of such a world the gifts in the sleigh of Santa Claus is make-believe – and as what you believe is what you seem to see, it appears to hide non-duality.

So to speak of a world where there seems to be more than one as a layered virtual reality on top of that which is a metaphor. There is no layers on top of that which is one. That is not possible, because there is nothing outside of it.

Yet a world where there seems to be more than one only appears to be there when you wish to see more than one. Any explanation about such a world, however, is an illusion. Also that there is a way back to the formlessness of that which is one other than undoing the belief that there is more than that.

This you do not want. Just like it seems more exciting, that it is Santa Claus bringing you gifts and not your parents, the thrill of being someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one seems more appealing than the peace of that which is one, so you choose to believe the weird story of a world where there seems to be more than one. 

That is until – in the context of the Santa Claus metaphor – you stop believing there is a sleigh full of gifts, and that those gifts you get, you receive because of your parents.

In other words, the excitement you seem to experience in a world where there seems to be more than one, is only possible to experience because of that which is real, namely that which is one, and which cannot be believed, seen or experienced, as that requires more than one. That is why it is so peaceful.

To be that which is peace, and nothing else, you must give up being charged by excitement. The graphic is from the internet.

PART 2:
The peace of that which is one has no contrast, which is why it is not to be found in a world where there seems to be more than one. In such a world the experience of peace is contrasted by war in order for you to know when you are at peace. In the formlessness of oneness peace, however, is not the absence of war. It is rather the absence of a world where there seems to be more than one – or more correctly the absence of excitement.

There are lots of excitement to find in a world where there seems to be more than one, but no matter what you are excited about, you are bound to lose it – if not before then for sure when you die. So fear of losing what you have follows in the footsteps of excitement – also if you try to tone down feelings via meditation or similar techniques used to deny specific parts of a world where there seems to be more than one.

To make long short, if you want the peace, that cannot be experienced since it has no contrast, you must give up being charged by excitement that seems to come for example a new spouse, home, vacation, state of mind or whatever lights your fire, because there is no excitement in that which is one. That is why it is so peaceful.

Two or more can become one, not in the world though, but together you can undo the dream of separation. As you appear to be more than one in the world, you are more than enough to undo it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
All searching is based on the sense that something is missing, and so searching on a psychological level will enhance this sense of loss.

If you search for something, you must have forgotten that which is you, as it is no different from that which is one, and as it is formless it is endless, so that which is you is and has everything. Hence searching for something is a denial of that which is you.

In other words, you have not chosen to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one to reestablish that which is you. On the contrary, you want to escape it by searching for something larger than life.

Yet there is nothing larger than life. Not because it is the largest – life is smaller than a period in this article – but because there is no more than the oneness of life.

The reason scientists have not been able to find the source of life is very simple. There is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world is to be compared to a dream, which, though only possible due to the one dreaming it, does not contain the dreamer.

Nothing in a dream is real, neither in the dream of a world where there seems to be more than one. It may seem real while the dream is going on, and it may seem as you can find something there, but you can never find anything but dreams. They, however, may seem to be larger than the oneness of life. This greatness you seem to be able to achieve in the dream, you will not give up for the peace of that which is one.

And you do not need to since there is no more than that which is one, so there is no dream and therefore nothing to give up, except the belief that there is.

PART 4:
If you are new to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings you may expect to find something exciting in them, that can be used to improve your appearance as a person in the world or to transform this person to a better and more spiritual one. If this is what you expect, you will not find what you think you need in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, and elsewhere you will just get empty promises about a merry-go-round world to come in the future.

Peace cannot be experienced, as it is the formlessness of that which is one, and it takes more than one to experience something. So when there is no experiences, neither so-called spiritual or mundane, there is nothing to hide there is no more than that which is one.

What you need is peace, and that cannot be found. Fortunately, that is not necessary, because peace is that which is you. If this is not obvious, it may be because, you think, what you need is excitement. That is not peaceful, because whatever you get excited about, will slowly vanish. This includes so-called spiritual states. Even if something seems to remain the same, your excitement will not, as the foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one is the belief that there must be more.

What a world where there seems to be more than one is all about is the hope for more excitement, that based on past dreams is expected to be found in future appearances. When there is nothing to hope for, it is pretty boring to appear as if you are in such a world. But the more bored you are, the more you are bidding welcome the peace of that which is one.

Instead of questioning this belief, everybody joins in groups of socialism, capitalism, spirituality and whatnot hoping to find something better and lasting that will keep them forever excited. If you are in such a group, you will not like the ending of this article, because it has no more to say and no solution for you, but to undo the belief that is hiding the peace of that which is one, namely the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

A telly has a constructed personality, but no self or soul.

PART 5:
These days it can be very dangerous to believe you have a self. Recently 12 persons died trying to snap a spectacular selfie. In the same period, eight had their self eaten by a whale – or rather their belief in being a self. So far, however, nobody has actually found this self.

It is like trying to find a self in a television. It has no self. None of the things that it broadcasts is made by itself. It does not even know who is broadcasting and what is broadcasted.

To be empty as a telly does not mean, that there are no thoughts, but that they are not considered to come from someone definitive.

Not knowing what and where you are, you are just as empty as a telly. Hence there is not something to be excited about and therefore not something to hide the peace of that which is one.

It is very seldom, that the clouds are that low like in this pic shot an early morning from my terrace, but whether I experience th beauty of it directly or not, the experience will not last.

PART 6:
Peace in a world where there seems to be more than one always comes from something, maybe from the experience of being with your spouse away from everything, being a special beautiful place in nature untouched by humans or being meditative in surroundings without noise. But no experience last, neither do any of the appearances that seem to cause the experience of peace. Silence will sooner or later be replaced by noise, and it is not possible to always be in a place experienced to be beautiful or meditative.

Peace as experience will never last. Therefore the experience of it – just like any other experience – entails fear of losing it.

As an experience of peace is based on excluding something, for example, noise, disturbing persons or thoughts, it is is based on what is absent, and so you can never have it without its opposite.

In reality, there is only that which is one, so there is nothing to experience, neither is there someone who can be disturbed, as that requires more than one. In other words, in reality, peace is not an experience but the perpetual present of that which is one.

NOTE BENE:
What you want is what you do not have, so if you presume that peace is what you want, the first step is to realise that you are fooling yourself. You cannot want peace, because contrary to the excitement it is that which is you.

But you can want not to hide peace with dreams of excitement.
