The sun does not go up and down – it is a deception

The sun does not go down, things does not get smaller in the horizon, and the Earth is not flat, even though it looks like that from the perspective of someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one is as alone as can be. Well, everybody is, even though they try to cover it with a full calendar and whatnot. The enlightened though has nothing to cover, because there is no ´I´ with a need to appear, as if it is together with somebody special or part of something greater.

Yet the enlightened is superb in regards to relating to others, because relating – just like anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one – is perceived as a symbol of oneness. In that sense all relations are the same. Consequently the enlightened has no need to be involved in a specific relation and therefore can tune into the needs of any relation and be its missing piece.

But there is no urge to make any relation last, neither is there any fear of its end, which is bound to come – especially as the reason for others to be in a relation is to be part of something special, so they expect to be missed, and the enlightened never miss anything.

A journey without distance
When persons seem to leave the enlightened, he/she does not perceive it as being left – just like the sun is not gone, when it seems to go away at night. It is in the same place, whether it appears to go up or down. It is the earth, that is moving.

The enlightened knows, that if others are experienced to leave, it only seems so, because the enlightened itself is moving – or rather imagine to move, because the enlightened is not in a world where there seems to be more than one. What is real cannot be in an illusion – just like within a world where there seems to be more than one it is not possible for a person to be in the virtual world of a video game. Yet it is possible to imagine being there.

To imagine something does not make it real though, so if others seem to leave the enlightened, because he/she imagine to move in the world, nothing has changed. Just like nobody is leaving you in a dream and you are not going anywhere, because all the time you are in your bed. Likewise that which is one is still the same and will always be, regardless what seems to happen in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one is on a journey without distance.

Being on a journey without distance requires the unenlightened to think, so he/she can figure out what to do and where to go. The enlightened, however, does not need to think, because nothing is needed on that a journey, as that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no nowhere to go, since that requires more than one.


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.

  2. […] In other words, do not let concepts of right and wrong prevent you from going with the flow. The flow of the sun, for example, is to go down before it goes up. And then again, it does not actually go up and down. It is just how it is perceived when we believe to be somebody definitive with the world revolving around us.
