NZR+++ That which is you is not made of anything [under development]

If you are conscious about something, you are nothing, as it requires more than one to be conscious of something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The choices the special self claims to have made itself are made in the tale, that it in retrospect makes up from past events, as if it was in charge of them. It is like when a dream is over and you afterwards interpret the bits and pieces, that you remember of it, to mean that you are this and that, though you were not even in the dream but in your bed. The dream is a fantasy made by nobody and with nobody in it, that  chooses something.

In other words, since there is nothing in a dream, interpreting it is to make something out of nothing, which is not possible. Likewise whatever you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is something made out of nothing, because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

This does not mean that which is you is nothing, nor everything, but the formlessness of oneness.

When not identifying with what you appear to do, as if it is something, you are nobody and thus not somebody who is hiding, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

Since the brain is in charge of everything in a world where there seems to be more than one – read more about that here – the basic self never has to make up its mind. The same applies to special self, but as it wants to manifest itself as independent, it needs to make up its own mind. Although that is not possible, the special self makes it appear to be so by making special stories of the past, that seems to prove it is in charge.

But since there is no more than that which is one and making a decision requires more than one, any choice is an illusion. Thus the special self is much further from acknowledging the nothingness of itself than the basic self and thus not appearing to be someone who hides the formlessness of oneness.

Believing to be someone substantial made out of flesh and bones because you appear to be in a world defined by time and space is just as foolish as to believe you are a car made out of plastic when playing a game like Monopoly. You are not in that game, neither in the game of a world defined by time and space.

That which is you is not made of anything. In fact it has never been created, because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to create something, wherefore whatever you believe to be made off is an illusion. The same of course applies to be conscious of something. This is why, it is not knowing what and where you are, that bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

As believing to be what you are not does not feel good, you always search for special relationships or something else you imagine will make you feel better. But that which is you is not capable of searching, nor of being in a relationship, as it is that which is one and searching and being somewhere requires more than one. And so does feeling good.

Fortunately there is no need for that, when not believing to be what you are not, because it takes more than one to need something.

The truth does not expect to be followed, since it is that which is one and it takes more than one to follow something. For the same reason, it cannot be sold or bought, taught or learned, unless you believe there is more than one, but since that is not so, what is sold or bought, taught or learned is nothing exaggerated into something.

The basic self constantly has an experience of being someone definitive in a world defined by time and space via the feelings, that keep popping up and thus making it entertaining to be a basic self. But that is not so for the special self, because it wants to hang onto specific feelings – love, peace and harmony for example – so it can feel defined by those. But feelings extended through music, chanting and whatnot enhance what they are supposed to suppress.

This the special self is always trying to resolve by making them better, so that it does not just feel love, for example, but pure love – and instead of having normal experiences, it imagines that it is having spiritual or direct experiences.

These speculative states of mind, however, confuses the special self, so it hits on the idea of going back to basic. Not the basic self though, but some theoretical state of being beyond the mind, although there is to be, because whether you follow the basic or special self, what you follow is nothing, and thus also going beyond it. There is no real self anywhere, nor ´someone´ imagining this.

That you can rid off feelings by hiding them in the body or get them out of your system by expressing them is an illusion, because there is nothing neither inside or outside of what you believe to be. There is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless. And as it takes more than one to exist, you do not exist. Hence there is nothing to get rid off except the belief that you exist.

In other words, the idea  going beyond is just a sophisticated ways of trying to establishing what you believe to be is real and not an illusion. But that which is you cannot go anywhere, since it is that which is one and it takes more than one go somewhere.

Sooner or later what you believe to be is bound to vanish. No worries. It is only your belief that vanishes. Not that which is you. It is no different from that which is one and as it is takes more than one to vanish, it never ends. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self is always on the way to the next moment, because it always feels something is missing that it hopes to find afterwards.

But the basic self does not get afterwards, neither before. Not because it lives in the now. It does not get that either. All it gets is the flow of thoughts, that seem to add up to it being someone having an experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

The flow of thoughts do not reveal if the experience is real or a fantasy. Yet it is part of the flow that all experiences has an end – also the experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one – so the basic self does not panic when the construction of thoughts that seem to hold this experience together falls apart.

The basic self is connected with its maker – the brain – which also is what it has made. And as it makes every experience, that the basic self has, the brain and thus the basic self is the experience as well. In other words, every experience of being someone in a tangible world is a fantasy made inside the brain. But also that the brain is making a fantasy is a fantasy – read more about this here – and it is made by nobody.

It is just like having a dream within the context of the world where we appear to be. Though it appears as if there is something in the dream, there is nothing. It is a fantasy made by nobody and it ends all by itself. So does the fantasy of us being somebody substantial in a tangible world.

In other words, the end of the fantasy is included in it. Thus everything that appeared to be something returns to the nothingness from where it seemed to arise, wherefore there is not something appearing to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

So no matter what and where you appear to be in the fantasy it is bound to vanish. This is not a problem for the basic self, because unlike the special self it has not established itself as being independent, so it happily goes with the flow of the fantasy to the very end.
