When you know there is nothing to hope for, there is nothing to hide that which is one

The way a computer is organised like a desktop with folders and subfolders gives the impression, that there are things of different size and importance to find on different levels. This is not because it actually is so. On the contrary. There is no organisation at all. It is all stored chaotically and non dimensionally on a flat hard disk. Yet it is made to appear on the screen, as if everything is organised in time and space, because that is the way person expects life to be.

The world, that we appear be in, can be compared to a computer. What we seem to see in the world is an illusion layered on top of reality, that has nothing to do with the way the world is perceived.

There is no universe in the way a person perceive it. What is there can be compared to flat data from a flat hard disk, that is programmed to look like a 3D world on the screen, when you wear special glasses to help the brain fooling you into believing, you see such a world.  In other words, the reality of life is not dimensional but flat. Dimensions are make-believe.

What you seem to see in the world appears to have different sizes and to last for a certain time, as if it exist in a world made by time and space. But in reality there is no time and space. There is no more than that which is one, which has no size and cannot be seen, as that would require more than one.

Life is real and what is real cannot be seen in a make-believe world. Just like when you are engaged in a virtual world on a computer, you cannot see what it is covering. And you may not even want to see, what it is covering, because that will ´destroy´ the illusion of the world, where you appear to be someone special.

It is you as the observer, who is moving to create the illusion of time and space. In reality nothing moves, because reality is that which is one. Your first move is to depart from the reality and imagine there is more than that which is one, namely an observer and the observed.

The next move is to forget, you are split in two and only identify with the observer, who keeps moving around the observed as if it is outside the observer and appears to move in time in a dimensional way.

You cannot know what is real, as long as you hope for something, because reality is not something
To not cover up the reality of life, you have to give up the excitement of a make-believe world, that only seems to be there, because you have distanced yourself from reality, so that what you by appearing to observe from different angles can divide it into fragments that is used to fabricate a layer on top of reality where there seems to be more than one.

In oneness there is no universe. There is nothing but that which is one. That is why there is nothing but peace.

To appear separated from the reality of that which is one is fearful. That is why you cannot be at peace, when you believe to be in a world, where there seems to be more than one. Besides peace is real and there is no room for reality in an imagined world. You are bound to get confused in such a world. You cannot know what is real and what is not, as long as you mistake the imagination for reality.

To hope for peace requires more than one, and as there is no more than that which is one, hope separates – and separation entails fear.

When you hope for nothing, there is nothing to hide that which is real
Who am I, is a question that has been asked for ages, but in a make-believe world everything is imagined, so there is no way to know that which is you in such a world. Well, it is not possible to know at all, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to know something. Yet, in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you can know that which is not you, namely someone specific in a make-believe world.

The belief that you are someone definitive – whether it seems to be a so-called spiritual or mundane one  – is of course confusing, when reality is that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. So how to undo the belief in something unreal?

No matter how many folders you search on a computer to find its secret, and no matter how deep you go into subfolders, you have not gotten anywhere, because the folders are not really there. They are an illusion layered on top of the source code of the computer, that contains nothing but meaningless combinations of zeros and ones.

When you are out of hope, you know there is nothing to hope for in a world where there seems to be more than one, and so the need to believe it is possible to be someone definitive vanishes. Without this belief there is not something to hide reality, which is the formlessness of that which is one.
