Being wrong feels great

What do you get, when you keep peeling off layers of an onion? Nothing. The same applies to peeling off layers of the personality. It is there, so that you can pretend, there is something where there is nothing. Hence you should not peel off its layers, if you want to appear as if you are someone in a world of duality.

Nothing needs to be changed in the virtual world of a game you are playing in order for you to leave it, except the belief that you are there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Nothing in a world of duality – including whatever you believe to be – needs to be changed or transformed in order for it not to hide non-duality. It is the belief that you are in a world of duality, that needs to be undone. In the context of such a belief this can be compared to playing a game there. If you believe to be in its virtual world, returning to reality seems difficult, until this belief is undone.

Neither should you do that, if you want to undo the belief in duality. Layers are a basic element of duality, so if you take them seriously – and peeling them off is to take them seriously – you enhance the belief in duality. So if you do not want the belief in duality to hide non-duality, it is best not to deal with the layers of the personality, but how come you have chosen to believe, that you are a person in a world of duality.

Your choice of belief is based on what is in it for you, so as long as you believe, the apparent endless possibilities in a world of duality gives you more more than non-duality, which only has no more to offer than the peace of oneness, you will keep looking for more in a world of duality.   

As that which is you id no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as what is formless is endless there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to have fun or anything else, as to have something requires more than one. Yet it is possible to imagine a world where there seems to be more than one and have fun there, provided thar you do not foget it is not real. It is just something you pretend.

As that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to have fun, be sad or anything else, as to be or have something requires more than one. Yet it seems possible to imagine, that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one and therefore can have fun and much more – just like within the context of such a world, it is possible to imagine being something you are not in a role-playing game, which can be quite entertaining provided you do not forget, that whatever you experience there is make-believe.

The question therefore you should ask is if more money, more fame, more respect, more freedom, more peace, more love, or whatever you are trying to achieve more of in a world of duality results in more satisfaction. Very few, however, want to examine, if being and having more feels right, because if the answer is no, they are wrong, and this is to be avoided at any price.

In reality though it feels great to acknowledge, that I am wrong in believing, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, because this means there is nobody with a need to fit into a world of duality by participating in the race for more.
