To be at peace in a world, that is not ´there´

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 in 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, and life 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 being 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 a person, 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 peaceful. 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.
