We are in it together

In the context of this assumption it follows that if you appear to participate in the rat race for being and having more than that which is one, you feel it is not possible to be and have more than that which is one. This of course also applies to the do-gooders, who want to help others becoming and having more or to help distributing wealth so everybody equally can share being and having more than that which is one.

Well, it applies to everybody in a world, where there seems to be more than one, because you cannot survive in such a world without getting more air, more food, more clothes, more money and so on. In other words, we are all part of the same assumption, namely that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one – and we all feel it is wrong.

Forgiveness is only needed, when somebody is judged to be different. If you see this judgement is based on a mistake, it is not forgiveness that is needed but the correction of the mistake, which is to think, the apparent difference between you and others makes a difference.

That is why we rejoice, when the police catches a thief, because then we can project our guilt for grabbing as much as possible for as little as possible at anybody´s expense on someone, who does not follow the rules of how to grab as much as possible from others. We do not want to see, that we do not differ from a thief and that we all participate in the same quest for more and more. In other words, we all the same in the sense that we want to believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, even though we know it is not possible.

If we are the same, though we appear to be different, appearances must be an illusion.

That we basically are the same does not mean, that you stop being aware of our apparent differences, but that they do not make a difference. This does not results in you loving the whole world. Not at all. Now you are free to hate what you dislike and love what you like, because the apparent difference makes no difference. In other words, the perception that apparent differences do not make a difference is not meant to suppress feelings but to equally enjoy them.
