You can never lose life

Even though this pic is not the real thing but a simulation of people on the beach, and even though the simulation is twisted it is a confirmation of what is simulated, because without it the simulation would not be possible.

PART 1:
You cannot remain as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space without excluding something specific from your personality, because it is defined by what you exclude from it. If you, for example, do not like the feeling of inferiority, this feeling is excluded by justifying it with something that appears to be outside of you. Hence the flaws of an external world seem to define you as superior to it.

If you lose your self-control and express the flaws, that are supposed to define somebody else, you claim you were not yourself and that somebody else made you do it,. In this way you ensure, your superior position.

As life, however, is not exclusive but inclusive and therefore indefinable, you have excluded yourself from the formlessness of life, so everything excluded must be included if you want to undo that.

But you are probably not willing to do this, as that means there is nothing to define you and hence you are no more. No worries. By accepting this unwillingness, you are at peace with it, which is much better than fighting it, because not being at war inside yourself, you do not long for the satisfaction that seems to come from being defined as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space.

You do not resist something that is not there, so any resistance to the formlessness of life is a confirmation of it.*

But not even this acceptance is needed in regards to undo the apparent exclusion from the formlessness life. By acknowledging that you resist it, you establish a relation to it and having that you are on the right track. That is if the formlessness of life is what you want, and not to appear as if you someone definitive separated from it.

Though there is not a single red pigment in this photo, you will probably make an image of red strawberries inside of you, because your relationship with them tells you, they are red. Likewise, when you have a relationship with the formlessness of life, this is what you will remember every time you experience something in a world defined by time and space, regardless how it appears to be.

Even if you appear to be excluded from the formlessness of life, you have not lost it, because without it you could not experience to be someone independent in a world defined by time and space. So whether you seem to be happy or sad, calm or upset, well or sick, mundane or spiritual, this is only possible due to the formlessness of life.*

If it was not for the formlessness of life, you could not imagine being separated from it as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. Thus the appearance of you in such a world is a confirmation of the formlessness of life, which is sensed if not focusing on your appearance, as without this focus, your appearance will not seem to hide that which it confirms.

Rage or whatever those judged to be flawed seem to make you feel is a reminder of what you have excluded from yourself. Thus it is a confirmation of the formlessness of life, as without it you could not imagine to exclude anything.

And so there is no reason to blame others for how they appear to be, but neither to stop blaming them or be guilty about judging them, because whatever you do, think or feel is a reminder of the formlessness of life. See also The YOU finger and the three me fingers.

This does not mean, that there is life in the world where you experience to be. Life is that which is one, and as it takes more than one to experience something, everything experienced is lifeless. But it means, that even though the formlessness of life is not in the world where you appear to be, it is empowering your experience of it – just like even though electricity is not in the article, you are reading, it is what empowers the electronic media displaying it.

Do you see two faces or a vase in this image? The answer seems to be important within the reality of a world defined by time and space, as without definitions it does not appear to exist. In reality though it does not matter, because your electronic media neither has the space for faces or a vase. It is an illusion symbolising something, that is not there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Within the reality of a game like Monopoly, it certainly seems to matter what you do. But as this world is not real and you only pretend to be there, it really does not matter. The same applies, when you appear to be someone in a world defined by time and space. That is, if you do not believe that such a world is real, because if you do, it seems very important doing the right thing.

As all your experiences, therefore, symbolise the life empowering them,** it is not a matter of avoiding something. Pain, frustration, jealousy, death or whatever, you do not like, confirms life just as much as love and other so-called positive experiences.

The more you built yourself up, so that it appears as if you are special, the more you fear loosing it and become nobody. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The more you built up the personality so that it appears as if you are someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one, the more you fear to lose what you laboriously have pieced together and turned into nobody. That is until you see that being nobody is fearless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
As it takes more than one to realise something, it is not possible to realise, that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one. Yet it is possible to realise, it is not possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one.

No matter how much more you appear to become and have in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are bound to lose it. Hence you actually have nothing but the fear of losing everything.

As it takes more than one to have something, you have nothing at all in the formlessness of that which is one. But as formlessness is endless, having nothing is having everything. And since it requires more than one to lose something, you can never lose it. Hence there is nothing to fear. This fearlessness though is not accomplished by avoiding to be or have more in a world where there seems to be more than one. That is just another way of being and having more.

Being indifferent to what you appear to be and have, there is not someone definitive experiencing something specific. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But being indifferent to what you appear to be and have, there is not someone being or having anything. Thus becoming and getting more in such a world can be enjoyed without the fear of losing it. In other words, you are indifferent to what you appear to be and have in a world where there seems to be more than one, when not being exclusive but inclusive because that leaves nothing to define you as someone in such a world.

Another way to undo the belief in being someone definitive is to see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one because when every appearance is a symbol of the same, there is no time and space to separate them.

Even though a fantasy depends on reality, it does not relate to it, so it can never be fenced in by that which is real. That is why it is possible to fantasize about a world where there seems to be more than one, even though reality is that which is one.

It is not possible though to make the fantasy real, because that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

In other words, there is nobody but you have a fantasy about a world where there seems to be more than one, and so it does not matter what you appear to be.
