+ When the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is undone nothing seems to hide that peace is always present

You behave civilized and pay for what you take – at least when there is no other way to take what you want without being exposed as a thief.

Gandhi and others, who in different ways tried to establish peace in their part of the world, all failed. The reason is simply, that peace is not possible in a world where there seems to be more than one, as it is based on being and having more, so everybody fight for more and fear to lose what they have.

You cannot survive in such a world without taking something from others physically or psychologically. And it does not matter, if you eat meat or not, raw or vegan and whatnot. The principle is the same. You must take something from outside of yourself, if you want to be appear as if you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. The strongest and/or are most clever, will take more with the result that others have less or almost nothing.

No matter, if you are rich or poor, you know it is like that, and so you will always fear that others take from you, what you have taken from them. And if too many have too little, they will start fighting those that have more. But it also happens, that those who have a lot fights to get more. It is happening all the time – and not just on a big scale.

The fight for more
You work to be and have more, but all the time the boss tries to give you less, so that he/she can be and have more by profiting on you. And you both try to work as little as possible for as much as possible. When you go to a shop, it is to take as much as possible from outside of yourself and give as little as possible for it. For the shop it is the other way around. It tries to give you as little as possible for as much, as it is possible within the law – or maybe their own extended version of it.

To take from others has been organised in a way, so everybody appear to be civilised, although they all try to figure out how to get as much as possible for as little as possible within the rules of society, because if you do not follow them, you will be used as scapegoat for people’s guilty conscience about how they exploit others.

To make long short, even though taking from others have been organised in ways so that it looks as you are a civilised person in a civilised world, it is a constant fight to keep together what you are and have. You must always defend yourself against others, so no one smarter or stronger than you take what you have taken from others. And it is the same for everybody, no matter where they appear to be in this game of appearing to be and have more than others in a so-called spiritual, physical or psychological way.

This fight may lead to big wars or small arguments in daily the encounters, like for example who shall do the dishes. It has always been like that, and it will go on like that, as long as you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. If you think, that you or a group of people can change this, you suffer from illusions of grandeur. Why should you be able to do, what nobody else has been able to do in thousands of years?

Nowadays most second-hand knowledge seems to come from the web. This is not to say the web is bad, but that most use it to pump up their personality with things they know nothing about, and yet fight about as if they know what is right. This is not peaceful, but that is not important either, as what they want is to look superior, so they can hide their feeling of being inferior, which one is bound to feel appearing as a separated being in a capsule of time and space.

Nowadays a lot of second-hand knowledge seems to come from the web. This is not to say the web is bad. Unfortunately info from there is often used to pump up ones appearance, so that it seems more powerful and therefore appears to hide the underlying feeling of inferiority. But whatever is done to hide or fight something enhances it, because every time something is done about something, it reminds you why you are doing it. So the more you hide or fight the feeling of inferiority, the more the cause of it, namely the belief in being someone definitive, is enhanced – and as peace it is fenced off. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Peace does not come from more, neither from less, but from that which is one
Since peace is the formlessness of that which is one and since formlessness it is endless, there is no more than that which is one, so peace cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Hence it makes no sense to look for it there, Neither anywhere else, because it takes more than one to find something and peace is that which is one. And even if it could be found, you would not know what to look for, as your knowledge of it is based on speculations and second-hand knowledge.

Yet you know what is not peace, namely separation, so if you choose to undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, a world where there seems to be more than one will no longer appear to hide that there is no more than that which is one.

denial9The above article mostly mention fights between persons in a world where there seems to be more than one, but it is the same inside of you. There is no peace inside. Meditation and other techniques to find peace inside are just tools used to fight undesired feelings and thoughts by suppressing them. But denial does not make anything go away. A world where there seems to be more than one and what you appear to be there consist of conflicting contrast like for example peace and war. Hence you cannot have peace without war, as long as you believe there is more than that which is one.

In the below hacks you can read how to undo this belief by not excluding but including the apparent opposite sides of contrast:
