+(+) Harmony hides that which is one

As harmony and balance require more than one, it seems to hide there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To be balanced and in harmony seems to be the goal for many seekers in a world where there seems to be more than one. But as nothing in such a world can be experienced as something specific without a specific contrast, you cannot experience to be harmonious without its contrast.

So when you want more harmony – which you eventually will crave, as being and/or having more is the reason for believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one – you must also experience more of its contrast.

In other words, to experience more harmony in yourself and/or the world, you must also experience more violent feelings. Hence you seem to be torn apart by a fight between good and evil again. That is until you do not favour one contrast over the other but include them precisely as they occur to be.

When furious feelings are expressed they often comes out in sentences like »You are this and you are that …«. If it is changed into »I am this and that …«, it may be easier to include those feelings, so the belief that you are someone in a world, where there is more than one can be undone.

This is not meant to say, that you must stop blaming others. On the contrary. Blaming others is the easiest way of exposing, what you have excluded, so that it can be included instead. See for example the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

When included they the two sides of the contrast are not separated,  and as that momentarily rubs off on other contrast, there is no separation to uphold the belief in being someone definitive. Hence this belief does not hide, there is no more than that which is one.

Bliss appears to be the biggest trap of the world. It seems as a goal for most seekers. Unfortunately you cannot experience something without its contrast, so when you want more bliss, which you will eventually crave, as being and/or having more is the reason for believing in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you will experience more of its contrast. The ego is not a power separated from you, but experienced as if it is, you seem to be separated as well made by contrasts of this and that. If any part of a contrast is fully included as it is, it cancels out both itself and its contrast, as no contrasts can survive inclusion. Without contrasts world, where there seem to be more than one, cannot be seen. Consequently there is no ego to hide that which is you, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

The ego is not a power separated from you, but when experienced that it is, you seem to be a creature separated from the world by contrasts of this and that. If one side of a contrast, however, is fully included, the contrast is cancelled out, and so there is no hate, for example, to show you what love is and vice versa. In other words, without contrasts, there is no separation and thus no ego. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The ego cannot survive inclusion
Harmony and balance, as described in the previous article Harmony hides that which is one, are not the only rewards the ego offers. Depending on our personality, it will seduce us with more love, wealth, freedom, power, consciousness or whatnot. Basically, it will promise us more of whatever we desire, because it wants us to believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Much energy is required to always get more. That is why more energy and/or power is the best-selling point for capitalistic companies and most so-called spiritual movements, as their apparent existence is based on following the ego so that the idea of a world where there seems to be more than one can be upheld as real.

It may seem, as if the ego is a force outside of you, that cannot be controlled. But that is only because you want to believe it is not part of you so that you can see yourself as a victim of powers outside of you. The ego thrives from this separation, so if you include it, it has nothing to live from – and so there is no separation to hide that which is you is no different from that which is one.

You cannot recognise, that differences make no difference, if you do not start off by experiencing hate as well as love, bad as well as good and so on. In which order makes no difference. But you will not know, differences make no difference, if you suppress feelings upsetting you, as doing so will make them appear to be different.

The ego is automatically included when the apparent differences of a world where there seems to be more than one is not perceived to make a difference.

You are very vulnerable when definable, but not being definable you are untouchable. So how to become nobody? Do not exclude anything but include everything! The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX:
To fully include a feeling of the moment is in no way about going deeper, being more truthful or more about anything else. It is just about including the feeling, as it is.

Inclusion – contrary to exclusion – makes a moment perfect.

Going deeper and being purer are ideas of the ego, who wants to keep you occupied trying to make yourself or the world better so that you are too busy to see that any moment is the perfect moment. Nothing is wrong, and nothing is missing.

In a perfect moment you do not need more – neither less – so you do not need the help of the ego to make it better. Yet the idea of improving yourself and/or the world will most likely pop up again. No worries. It will not stress you if you include it.

You need to exclude something to become something.

If you are afraid a perfect moment is not strong enough to withhold the attacks of the ego, all you need to do about it is to not do anything but include this feeling as well. The ego only appears to be there, when something is excluded, so by including everything as it is you are untouchable.


NOTES:

  • Being untouchable in a perfect moment has nothing to do with the condition of the body or the world. The body may partly or entirely break down, but even though this is experienced as painful, it will not make you suffer, because you are untouchable.
