Those looking for peace are full of shit

_IGP1815-Edit-Edit-2

The world can only be perceived due to contrasts. We tend to notice those parts of the world with the biggest contrasts, but if you pretend to be someone in the world instead of believing to be ´there´, you do not perceive differences to make a difference. Not because you perceive them as one but as different symbols of that which is one*. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Love and peace can only be experienced if contrasted by their opposites, so if you experience love and peace, your experience is founded on hate and war.

You cannot have one without the other. All opposites are two sides of the same coin. So if you experience hate and war, you also have love and peace. In other words, you can just flip the coin, when seeing hate and war.

Only those believing to be a person in a real world, have dreams of everlasting peace. The reason they follow these merry-go-round dreams, that they mistakenly call spirituality, is to cover up, they are full of shit.

The apparent difference between of peace and war makes no difference to those, to those pretending to be someone definitive in the world**. They see it as part of the experience to pretend being someone definitive be in a world where there seems to be more than one, as everything in such a world needs to be contrasted in order to be experienced.

Jesus, who the do-gooders often refer to around Christmas regarding peace, said: »I will not bring peace, but dissension, fire, sword and war«. In this way, the peaceful persons, who fight the shit in themselves by projecting it onto others, can see the war in themselves.

PART 2:
Only that which is one can be present. When there is more than one, there are more possibilities, and so you start imagining, what and where to be and have. This is not one perpetual present, but several versions of the present. They are not real, because reality needs not to be imagined. One perpetual present cannot be imagined, because it is that which is real. And there is nothing else than that which is real.

In a world where there seems to be more than one the foundation is not that which is one but more than that, so you can never be present there. But you can simulate the present by for example imagining to be in the moment. Such a moment consists of many things, both so-called good and bad, right and wrong, past and future and so on. It includes everything, you imagine at that moment, and it lasts as long as the imagination lasts, whereas one perpetual present ´only´ contains what is unimaginable and never ends.

Life, which is one perpetual present, excludes everything, that is not the formlessness of that which is one. This does not mean, it is exclusive, but as formlessness is endless, there is nothing outside of it, so it cannot include what is not there. In other words: One perpetual present includes everything, that is real.

You cannot be in one perpetual present, as it takes more than one to be somewhere. But you can stop being where you are not, namely in a world where there seems to be more than one. The way to stop this is to pretend to be there, because where you pretend to be you are not.

Thinking that you understand this, you have not understood anything but forgotten the world is based on the idea that there is more than one, and what is not one is not real. All that you can do in an unreal world is pretend to understand.

If you sense this, you will not feel good as a person, and you will not feel good as a non-person either. A non-person is that which is one and it has no feelings – as it takes more than one to feel something. Feelings are part of pretending to be someone definitive, so not feeling good is how to know, you are not a person.

Realising this, however, will not bring peace. There is nothing to get in a world, that is not ´there´. Yet this realisation will be remembered as being at peace. Not a peace though that you can experience. The peace you can know as a person in the world is contrasted by war. This peace has no contrast – it is a ´state´ of not knowing, and that is what and where you are, when you do not know, what and where you are.

NOTES:

  • Ultimately no one is full of shit or anything else. There is nothing to be full of, as there is no more than that which is one. For the same reason, there is no contrasts in oneness and therefore nothing to desire or to fix.
