+(+) When the apparent differences in a world where there seem to be more than one are not believed to make a difference, this belief does not seem to hide there is no more that which is one

When you your perception of higher is included equally with your perception of low, the moment is perfect. This does not mean that you must value high and low in the same way, but simply that both values are included.

When your perception of high is included equally with your perception of low there is no separation between the opposing sides of this contrast. Hence they cannot be experienced anymore as something specific This does not mean, that you must attribute the same value to high as well as to low, but simply that your perception of both of them is included exactly as they appear to be.

Without the belief in contrasts it is not possible to have an experience as if there is more than that which is one. In other words, a world, where there seems to be more than one is fabricated through contrasts – and so what has no contrast, namely that which is one, appears to be hidden by it.

When a contrast is included, its opposing sides cancel out each other. Hence you cannot help but smile, because there is nothing but empty space.

In a such a world any thought or feeling needs to be contrasted in order to be experienced, as if it is something specific and not just empty space. Hence there is no love to experience, if you totally deny its contrast hate – neither can you experience beauty if you completely exclude what you judge as ugly.

If you are experiencing more and more love, but are denying its contrast hate, part of love will turn into hate, so that it can contrast how much love you specifically are getting. But If you also deny this hate, more love will turn into hate and in the end there will be no more love to experience. That is until you do not deny hate. The same applies to any contrast of the world and it applies to both sides of them.

The body is full of excluded parts of contrasts, as that is where you try to hide what you judge to be bad. These suppressed thoughts and feelings may be experienced as headache, bloated stomach and whatnot.

As the oneness of life is inclusive and you being exclusive in order to be defined as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, what you believe to be is lifeless.

In fact it is nothing but empty space. And that is what is seen – or rather not seen, as it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one there appears to be something to see – when you do not perceive the apparent difference of the opposing sides in all the contrasts, that make up a world where there seems to be more than one, to make a difference.

Without differences there is not something to take up a space of its own and there are no space in between anything. Hence there is nothing but the empty space in which the contrasts were imagined to be, and so there is not something to hide the formlessness of oneness.
