The difference between one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one and one who is not

When you see a movie, you forget it is not real, and you seem to go, where the movie takes you.

When we watch a movie, we forget it is not real, and for a while we seem to go where the movie takes us, although we do not really believe to be there. Unfortunately though most seem to have forgotten, that the movie called The World is not real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The unenlightened sees differences everywhere – so does one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, but to the latter they do not make a difference.

The unenlightened is full of thoughts, that they assume are made by themselves and therefore represent the specific personality, they believe to have. In one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, there is also many thoughts, but there is no ´I´ with a need to pick them up and put them together in such a way, that it seems they belong to someone specific – and so thoughts are just passing by like birds in the sky.

This does not mean, that one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one observes the thoughts passing by. Not all, when an angry thought is passing by, he/she is angry – nothing more or less. And when a thought of compassion passes by, he/she is nothing but compassion in that moment.

Mistakes can be corrected
The only real difference between the unenlightened and the enlightened seems to be that the enlightened – metaphorically speaking – knows, where the river goes, so there is no need to search for something. Instead he/she can really enjoy all aspects of the roller coaster ride it feels to be following the flow of the river.

Everybody in the roller coaster is heading to the sea – and if you do not see yourself and everybody else there, you must be mistaken. No worries though – a mistake can easily be corrected. That is, if you acknowledge you are mistaken.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4-7.3 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can.
