We are in it together

If this is so, it follows that when you participate in the rat race for being and having more than the formlessness of that which is one in the world that appears to be outside of you, inside of you there is a feeling that it is not possible to be and have more than the formlessness of oneness.

This applies to everybody in a world where there seems to be more than one, as you cannot survive in such a world without getting more air, more food, more clothes, more money and whatnot. 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 that it is not so.

Forgiveness is only needed, when somebody is judged to be different. But when you see, that this judgement is based on a mistake, it is not forgiveness that is needed but correction of the mistake, which is the belief that he apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one make a difference.

That is why we often rejoice, when the police catches a thief, because then we can project our guilt of being in the rat race for more on someone else. We do not want to see, that we do not differ from a thief in the sense that we all want as much as possible for as little as possible, even though we sense there is something wrong.

That we do not differ from each other basically speaking does not mean, that you should try to stop being aware of our apparent differences, but that you do not have to perceive them to make a difference. Neither does it mean you should love everybody. On the contrary. 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.
