Strangers in the Night

The world is fabricated by bits and pieces.

The world is fabricated by bits and pieces, that you put together in such a way, that you seem to someone specific, who is part of something special. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

I have been told, that to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one in old scriptures is compared to be in a world of darkness. Do not know if they said so and if they meant it literally, but I do know, there is no light in a world where there seems to be more than one, neither from the stars, the sun or anything else. It is something we have learned to imagine, so that we can navigate in a world of darkness. Let me illustrate this with a story within the context of my appearance in such a world:

Fabricating my world in the darkness
There are no streetlights outside my home, so when I wake up in the middle of the night, the only thing to ´light´ up my bedroom is the stars or the moon. One may therefore conclude, it is impossible for me to find the way to the toilet, unless I use a torch or turn on the electrical light.

Yet it is easy for me to find the way without the help of electrical light, because I have learned where everything are and can use certain things as navigation points, so that they seem to ´light´ up the way. It is all imagined though and put together by trial and error. I actually stumbled quite a few times learning to ´see´ the way.

But I cannot ´see´ anything else in the night than the way, I have fabricated to the toilet, because I have not learned to ´see´ more than that. I may be able to learn ´seeing´ beyond this, if I study how to do this. But what I learn to ´see´ beyond my way to the toilet will be just be another fabrication, as the rooms next to my bedroom are also completely in the dark.

The way from my bed to the toilet can be compared to everybody´s way in a world where there seems to be more than one. You seem to see something, and then navigate from that to what you interpret as something else. But you are moving in the dark, and whatever you think you see is an imagination, that you have learned to perceive as if it is reality. Without this imagination there is nothing to see. Neither is there anything hidden or something to be learned except, that it is all an illusion.

What is fabricated does not exist
When you do not care to find your way through the darkness, all what you had imagined there will disappear – also darkness, which is just as imagined. And without this imagination – or rather the believe in it – there is nothing but unimaginable light. Not a light like that can be compared to the sun or similar artificial sources of light. And not a light that lights up something to see. There is nothing to light up.

Everything is one light. When the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome, the belief that there is something to see cannot survive. And when there is nothing to see, there is not something to hide that which is one.

You can compare bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one to a video call to that which is one. There is so much light on the video screen, that you cannot see it, neither the world, until you hang up the phone, and find yourself back in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you remember, there is no more than that which is one and that it is no different from that which is you, so you it is not possible to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you can pretend to be ´there´.

In other words, you pretend to be someone definitive, but what you pretend to be, you are not. That which is you is the formlessness of oneness.

Kind regards
Alexius
