To be angry or to be joyful is the same

PART 1:
The reason for abandoning that which is one in favour of a world where there seems to be more than one may differ from person to person. One general reason though is the craving for being and having more than that which is one. And anger that this is not possible, since formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so there is no more than that which is one.

The purpose of believing to be a separated creature in a body is that in the body you can hide what you do judge to be wrong, so an image of you being right can be fabricated.

Yet it is not possible to feel anger in oneness since that requires more than one. So anger is not something you feel but that which is you, and as there is no difference between that and the formlessness of oneness and there is nothing outside it, anger cannot be escaped.

When somebody else or your own body is blamed for the anger, so you seem to be off the hook and on a path of love. See also the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

But what if there was something outside of oneness. If so there would be somewhere to escape – and so you imagine a whole world outside of that which is one where there seems to be more than one and keep imagining ´what if´. In this world you can hide the anger in the body, you seem to have, or project it onto other bodies, which is the main purposes of the appearance of them, as they not only seem to hide your anger but also that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one is it possible to experience a contrast like that of joy and anger. This or any other feeling is, however, an illusion, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to feel something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Yet none of the imagined appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts, so sooner or later anger seems to be yours again. And nothing will really help you to get rid of it or any other feeling that you brought into a world where there seems to be more than one. Fortunately, you do not have to get rid of anything, if everything seen is perceived as symbols of that which makes it possible to imagine, there is anything to see at all, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Hence the apparent difference between anger and joy does not appear to make a difference, and when everything is the same there is peace.

That everything is the same in the sense that every appearance symbolises the formlessness of that which is one, does not mean that you should not acknowledge the apparent between for example you and me, but that you do not interpret it to make a difference.

To perceive differences in that way is not ultimate reality though but a simulation of it. No worries. By seeing every appearance as a symbol of that which is one, you are not identified with being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, and so you are bidding welcome the formlessness of that which is one, and as that is no different from that which is you it is only a matter of time the symbols do not appear to hide that which they are symbolising.

How long this will take is not important, because time is a symbol of that which is one and like all other symbols an illusion. So even though you appear to be waiting to return that which is you, it is not so. That is where you are there. It is not possible to be anywhere else.

When nothing is excluded, there is nothing to define you, and thus nothing to hurt you. And as nothing, you are free to fall into the formlessness of that which is one. The animation is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Just like there are no memories of you as someone in a physical world when having dreams while being at sleep in such a world, there are no memories of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one when the body you identified as yours is dying.*

Yet all the thoughts and feelings, that you excluded in order for them to define you as what you were not in a world where there seems to be more than one, chaotically and speedily are rushing by. If you for example excluded negativity in order to be defined as not negative but positive in a world where there seems to be more than one, negativity will rush by mixed up with everything else excluded.

But as there is no experience of a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot escape this in the way you used to, namely by projecting unwanted thoughts and feelings on somebody else. Neither would that be meaningful in regards to making up an identity of you as someone special, because there is not somebody else, who can define you in relation to them.

You are on your own, always was and always will be, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Also when you experienced to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. That was a make-believe world maintained by the brain. In the moments of death, however, it does not have the power to maintain this illusion.

If you do not believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot suffer from pain, because it takes more than one to have a specific experience.

For the same reason there is nobody to share the pain of loneliness, that all those excluded thoughts and feelings rushing by seem to bring about, with – or in any way get help to surpass this apparent hell.

It feels like there is no solution. But there is, because if all thoughts and feelings are included, there is no need for a world where there seems to be more than one, so instead of feeling as if you are about to explode, you are at peace, slowly falling into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is no loneliness, as it takes more than one to be alone.

APPENDIX:
Since it takes more than one to be conscious of something, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one this is possible, so do if you do not want the belief in such a world to hide that there is no more than that which is one, do not hang onto consciousness, when you at the moment of death seem to lose it.

And as the consciousness of such wold is limiting, it hides the formlessness of oneness, which is everything there is, since formlessness is endless. So when you on the moment of death seem to lose consciousness of such a world or anything else, do not hang onto it, because it takes more than one to be conscious, so without it, there is nothing to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

Not hanging onto the conscious of being someone at all, feels like the end of you, but it is not the end of anything else than the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.
