Are you in my dream or am I in yours?

780101

Are you in my dream or am I in yours? Some think this is a brilliant question. Yet it is very stupid because it implies there is somebody in a dream and as a dream is nothing but empty space, there is nobody in it. The question, therefore, only makes sense, if you want to establish what and where you believe to be is real and not an illusion made out of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

That a world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a dream does not mean, somebody is making or having a dream about such a world, because it takes more than one to make or have something, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless. Thus questions like Are you in my dream or am I in yours? only makes sense for those who believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

When experiencing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be bid welcome,* as to have an experience of more than one is like having a dream.

In a dream, you may fancy an ice-cream, but you never get it, because the ice-cream you see is not there, nor is anything else. Thus having a higher consciousness and be part of something bigger is just another chapter of the dream. To claim the opposite is a trick gurus** and others use to make it seems as if there is something real in an illusion or at least way out of it if you follow their teachings.

As there is no more than that which is one, and as it takes more than one to feel alone, there is no loneliness in the formlessness of oneness.

The dreamer who is having a lucid dream is not in the dream, neither is the dream in the dreamer physically speaking. No matter how real a dream may seem it is not real.

The apparent different distances and goals in a world where there seems to be more than one makes no difference when acknowledging everything are in the eye of the beholder. The image is grabbed from the web.

All roads lead to Rome, they say, and if so, they also lead away from it. So are you on the way to oneness or away from it? Before you start to wonder, please read the below.

A dream is an illusion, that temporarily is layered on top of reality, which appear to be hidden, as long as you experience the illusion to be real.

What you expect to see in Rome is shaped by where you come from. And so are your idea of that which is one are. As oneness, however, is formless and therefore endless, and as it takes more than one to have an idea, any notion of oneness is as illusionary as a dream.

But as there is no more than that which is one, only oneness can have this dream about a world where there seems to be more than one, while, metaphorically speaking, laying in its bed. So despite the direction, you seem to be heading in the dream of a world where there seems to be more than one, that which is you is not going anywhere. It remains that which is one.

When you grasp, that a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, you do not expect to get anything real from it – just like you do not expect to get presents from Santa Claus when you are old enough to understand he is not real.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Though a dream appears to be in the dreamer, who appears to be in it, the dream is not in the dreamer, nor anywhere else. Nor is the dreamer in the dream but in its bed, which momentarily is excluded from the awareness of the dreamer so it can experience to be someone in a world that nobody is in control of since there is nothing in it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Though you appear to take part in a dream that seems to be inside of you, this is not so. The dream is not in you, and you are not in the dream – nor is nobody else. It is only due to your interpretation of it, that there seem to be different appearances separated from each other in different distances to what and where you believe to be in the dream. So if you refrain from interpreting it, there does not appear to be something where there is nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Regardless of what and where you believe to be in a dream, it is all gone when you wake up. Actually, it was never there, nor was you, because you were in your bed. That is why there is nobody in a dream to learn or realise anything.

Old school gurus and wannabes like to ask, who you are you so you get the impression, that they have a secret. But what they have is nothing, because it takes more than one to have something and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

When you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you can use this metaphor to see that you are not there. It is make-believe. You should not take it literally though, nor that there is someone making a dream of a world where there seems to be more than one because that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

For the same reason, none of the explanations in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings should be taken literally. They are metaphors meant to unmask that which is one. Not by pointing towards it, as that requires more than one, but towards what seems to hide it, namely the belief, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Your online personality would not appear to manifest in cyberspace, if not for the electrical power supporting the internet. Still, there is no electricity in your online character – just like there is no oneness in what you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, although it is oneness, that makes it possible to appear as if you in a world where there seems to be more than one because there is no more than that which is one.

There is no help to get in a dream, and it is not needed, because it is not real.

If you are feeling good, it is most likely because your body is in good condition. You are so identified with the body, so if there is anything not working, as it is supposed to, you do not feel good.

You say my body, which indicates the body is not you. It is something you have. You say my head, my brain, my mind, my soul and so on, so it is also something you have and not are.

So who is it, that has the body, brain, mind and soul? This question has been asked for ages – and nobody has come up with an answer. It is like asking who is doing what or having what in a dream. There is no answer. Because there is no one in a dream. Every part of it is illusionary. Appearing to be a person in the world can be compared to a dream.

The gurus and do-gooders that try to help you are just as illusionary like anything else in the dream. It can be a dream of love, but there is no love. It is just another illusion. When gurus and others claim otherwise, it is an attempt to make the dream appear as if it is real.

There is no help to get in a dream and no help is needed because the problems are not real. Whether they seemed to be solved or not, nothing is left of the dream when it is over.

That being said, as long as you seem to be in the dream called the world, you better deal with it, as if you are part of it – otherwise, you will not be there in the moment of awakening. But you also better take care of it without being of it – otherwise, you will try to remain part of it in the moment of awakening.

You believe a dream to be real because you feel good or bad things in the dream. If you stop believing in the reality of the dream, the feelings do not matter, and so they cannot make the dream appear to be real. When the dream stops to appear as real, it fades out and you wake up.

This goes for any kind of dream – also the dream of the world. You only seem to be there, because you believe it to be real – and feeling it seems to prove you are right. But if you stop believing to be in the world, you will not feel it, and so there is nothing there. You wake up to reality.

What is there, when you wake up, you cannot know in the dream, because the dream is not real.

If you are reading this article, you believe – or at least partly believe – in the dream of the world, and that you are a person in it. Otherwise you would not appear to be there reading this article. As long as you have this belief, you serve yourself best to honor your choice of belief and live the dream to its full extent. By honoring your choice, you are in charge. Consequently you have the power to choose not to believe in the dream anymore and wake up.

When you choose to stop believing you are a person in the world, it seems to take time for the dream to fade out, because everything in the world of linear time appears to take time. In this transition – although not believing in the world – you still participate as a person in it, but you could not care less about the outcome.

According to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, the world does not exist. There can be no scientific proof of that – or any other proof for that matter. If there could, the world would be real. Oddly enough, those who believe the world to be real, have not been able to find proof of its existence – neither through science or anything else. Yet they demand factual arguments for the statement, that the world is not real.

The world is to be compared to a dream. There is no way in a dream to prove it is not real. Such a proof is just another part of the unreality of the dream, where you seem to be real because you correct the signals coming from the sensory system so that the world is dimensional and not flat as the sensory system tells you when you look out the horizon.

The sensory system might be more correct though, than you may think, when it tells you, the world is flat. Non-duality is non-dimensional and therefore – in the context of dimensions – flat. To see dimensions is an illusion, that is only possible when you imagine yourself to be separated from what you see. Just like you seem to be able to see and do things in a dream, you cannot see and do when awake, you seem to be able to do things in the world of duality, that is not possible in non-duality.

This you cannot know in the dream. Just like you cannot know what is real in the world, because there is nothing real there. Neither this article and that it ends now.

The concept of forever is related to the desire for more. The more you become you want to go on becoming more and more forever. The same applies to the more you get, you want it to last more than now. Forever is what will suit you, but as you know it is not possible within the physical reality, you choose to believe there is a world beyond that, where there is more of you in a new and better version.

What you believe you will see, and so you can see astral worlds, where everything seems less physical – or if you are not ready to momentarily discard physical reality in order to see astral worlds, you can read stories about it from those imagining moving in other dimensions of the world. And so you can dream about it.

There are no dimensions, whether they seem physical or spiritual, as there is no more than that which is one – and oneness is formless. In other words, everything that can be sensed is an illusion.

In that sense, though you are not different from those who seem to be able to see or communicate with astral worlds. They too are dreaming. Everything that can be seen, experienced or been aware of is to be compared to a dream, because reality cannot be seen. There is only room for one in that which is real and so there is nothing for that which is one to see. Neither does that which is one has a personality, soul or any attributes known from the world because it takes two to be defined. That which is one is formless. Not that it knows this, because without forms there is nothing formless.

And without time there is no forever but one perpetual present – and as everything is there and there is nothing else than one perpetual present there is no need for more. That is if you do not think it is a constraint to be that which is one, but imagine the excitement it must be to become and have more than one.

No matter what and where you appear to be in a dream there is no reason to change or stop it because you are not there but in your bed. Likewise, there is no reason to change or transform anything in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are not there, nor anywhere else because it takes more than one to be somewhere and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Hence the duality hacks are not about realising or returning to oneness but to enjoy the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one while it is being undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As long as you believe to be physical, spiritual, pure consciousness or whatnot, you feel trapped in a world where there seems to be more than one because believing to be anything involves more than one.

Even though there seem to be distances in a dream it is not so. Everything is close together in the dreamer – just like everything is so close together in oneness, that there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Dreams are in a way closer to the formlessness of oneness than the wakeful state of a world where there seems to be more than one since they cannot be controlled or organised into something considered to be coherent and meaningful.

And contrary to a world where there seems to be more than one, everyone is close together in the dreamer – just like in the formlessness of that which is one.
