There is nothing to wait for

A dream is not real and so there´s no one there. Neither is a a dream made by any one. What is not real cannot be made. It can only be dreamed.

Somebody who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one never waits, because such a person has nothing to hope for. Neither does such a person live in the now, as there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Consequently such a person does not live in the world. Well, nobody lives ´there´. It only appears so – just like there appear to be somebody in a movie.

In the world – like in a movie – everything has an end. The unenlightened is therefore always afraid of loss and hoping for the end not to come or at least be postponed – and so ideas of god, heaven, reincarnation or anything else, that seem to extend the life of a person in the world are much cherished.

The way somebody who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one deals with the world can be compared to how a person participate in a game like Monopoly: It is not possible to be in the world Monopoly, but it is possible to pretend being ´there´.

The unenlightened may ask, who is it, that is pretending to ´there´ – but somebody who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one would never ask such a question. There is no more than that which is one. Consequently there is nobody pretending to be ´there´ – just like there is nobody pretending to be in a dream.
