3.1 You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference (in the process of being updated)

Searching for the meaning of life is stressing, because it has no meaning

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one can you search for the meaning of life. Yet it is not to be found there or anywhere else, because it takes more than one to find something and life is that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

The way that letters are put together in various shapes makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each of the constructions. And when they are organised in sentences like in this article, for example, the combination of different shapes is experienced to make up a story inside of us, so that although the meaning of those shapes have been attributed by ourselves, we feel the story, that seems to evolve from them, confirms us to be somebody in a world defined by time and space.

Reality is that which is one, and as it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be experienced.

Let us imagine, that the letters we believe to confirm us as somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space are the same letters making up the formlessness of oneness. But unlike in the world, where we believe to be and where we experience everything as separated by time and space, there is no space to keep anything apart in the formlessness of oneness, since it has no space.

Although the story of you as someone definitive is made up by yourself, you have not made a story about a happy person but a destructive one, because you hate the restrictions of being limited and not formless.

Thus the letters, that the formlessness of oneness consists of in this fable about it, cannot be distinguished from each other, and therefore not organised in shapes, that added together in specific ways seem to establish a story of us as separated beings in a world defined by time and space.

In non-duality there is no differences

In non-duality, everything is fused into one perpetual present, that no one can see, as it takes more than one to see something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A world defined by time and space is a slowed down version of the formlessness of oneness
It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters in the formlessness of oneness, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because everything moves so fast that time stands still, wherefore it is not possible to organise them in a linear way – or any other way for that matter.

So in the context of our story about time and space versus the formlessness of oneness you could say, that a world defined by time and space is a fantasy of what oneness looks like if slowed down. The slower you imagine it to be, the more there seems to be space between the shapeless letters, so they appear to be separated from each other with a definitive shape of their own.

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange them in different combinations with each their own meaning, that added together expand into a story of a world, where time and time and space seems to separate everybody from each other.

The slowing down of oneness is, therefore, an attempt to gain control of it and turn its formlessness into a construction of thoughts representing specific shapes in a world defined by time and space, that they seem to be something you can manipulate to your liking.

Thus the way back to oneness does not come from more control of thoughts or slowing them further down via for example meditation or stories about a quiet life on a peaceful planet, so you do not feel the speed of it, while it is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour without you falling off.

Neither does it come from understanding this or anything else, as to understand something enhances the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Whether something is experienced to be inside or outside, it is make-believe, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness and formlessness has no sides.

Non-duality has no meaning

To undo the belief in duality you must give up attributing meaning to anything, that seems to have a beginning and end so that the apparent differences of duality does not appear to make a difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A journey without distance takes no time
If you experience to be someone definitive, you are making up a story about a world defined by time and space from out of nothing, because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is not anything outside of it. It does not even have an outside, neither something inside of it, as it has no sides since it is formless.

No worries. When not attributing meaning to the letters in this article or anything else there seems to be in your story of a world defined by time and space, the story collapses, as when shapes have no meaning, there is nothing to separate them and therefore no time and space.

Since there is no more than oneness, nobody has ever left it. Thus the way back takes no time.

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something, that appears to be there, is of course to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one,* as it promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced, so that there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled, wherefore there is no story to be made.

If you, however, want to have your cake and eat it too, you can connect with the empty breath,** because it undoes the story of you in a world defined by time and space in a less abrupt way. Thus you are able to enjoy the excitement of the story while having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase the memories of you as someone in a world defined by time and space. Yet due to its flow of indifference, the apparent difference between what you believe to be and not to be is not perceived to make a difference.

Consequently, there is nobody to confirm the story of you as someone substantial in a tangible world is realwhich is why it is so much fun pretending that it is*** – just like in the context of that story, it is much fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

Speed is stillness

Stress comes from trying to keep together a fabricated image of a world where there seems to be more than one, instead of not preventing it from falling apart, and thus expose that there never was or will be more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

NOTES about speed and stillness:
It takes a lot of effort to appear as someone definitive in the substantial world of the outer senses, contrary to being nobody in the abstract world of the inner senses, as it requires no effort but not making an effort to be someone definitive.

This does not mean you have to be inactive in a certain body posture in the world of the outer senses to be in the bliss of the inner senses. You can move around in nature or the city at any pace that suits you, as long as there is no effort to use what that makes you appear to be as a confirmation of you being someone definitive in the world of the outer senses.

If not using your taste in for example music to prove how special you are, you seem to be nobody and so there is not somebody to hide, that what you believe to be is no different from Santa Claus, namely a fantasy made from nothing. This is not to say, you should avoid participating in the game of Santa Claus. Actually, it is so much fun when you know it is make-believe.

When not controlled, speed is not stressing

The amount of digital info only seems overwhelming, if you try to fit it into what you believe to be. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressing. But that only seems so, because they believe to be somebody definitive, and therefore need to have this confirmed by getting the right info. Thus they must exclude what is judged as wrong and sort the rest info in the categories, they have made to construct a definitive image of a world, where they are somebody special.

In other words, if you believe to be someone definitive, all info needs to be judged and sorted in boxes of good and bad, so it ends up in a story that points to you and like-minded ones as being the good ones and the others the bad ones. But as this story is based on countless judgments and speculative concepts regarding right and wrong, thoughts keep flying around, which is what stresses you and not the amount of incoming info.

This speculative and restless state though is not a problem, that needs to be fixed. In fact, the faster the speed of thoughts and feelings seem to be, the faster the stress disappears. That is if you do not try to slow down the speed but use it to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.*

The source of life cannot create anything, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to create something. For the same reason, it cannot be found. Fortunately, that is not necessary, because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than life.

Speed is stillness, when not controlled

If you do not try to capture something specific from this animation, the apparent chaos of it will not confuse you. In fact, there is nobody to be confused, because without reaching out for something specific, you are in the bliss of indifference to the belief in being someone definitive. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing – for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming plus computer to smartphones to wearables – and the speed of info in cyberspace is a reminder, that the reality of that which is one has no size, as it is formless and therefore endless, and for the same reason its incredible speed does not make it move anywhere but everywhere.

Also for the same reason, it cannot be found in a world defined by time and space. Thus nothing in such a world can bring you back to it, but the undoing of the belief that you are there.

That is the purpose of the empty breath as well as all other duality hacks. It is not achieved though by revealing the formlessness of oneness, because it takes more than one to reveal something. Besides, it does not need to be revealed, since it is no different from that which is you.

What needs to be revealed is what is used to hide this, namely the sorting of thoughts and feelings into categories, that seem to confirm you as someone in a world defined by time and space. If thoughts and feelings are not organised, the chaotic and speedy energy of them will ignite a take-off to the empty breath.****

And as the empty breath is indifferent to appearances, the sizes that make up a world defined by time and space do not appear to make a difference, neither does fast and slow. Thus emptiness is all that is drawn from it, and so a world defined by time and space does not appear to hide formlessness of oneness anymore.
