Free to be no more than that which is one

To observe is to exclude, which is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To observe is to exclude, which is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
The oneness of life is not exclusive but inclusive contrary* to what is called life in a world where there seems to be more than one, as it is based on exclusion. First, you have to exclude the oneness of life by imagining it is possible to be outside of it and from there observe it in different angles so that each angle seems to reveal a different perspective
.

Hence oneness is experienced to be a dimensional world where there appears to be more than one. But as this experience requires constant movement, that excludes what you move away from, there seems to be a past and a future and that things in the past are forever lost.

Yet it is not possible to move or observe anything, as it takes more than one to do so, and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. It is, however, possible to think so.

You become definable as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one by excluding the experience of such a world from where the experience is fabricated, namely in the mind, so that the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one does not appear to be a fantasy of yours but a fact. But in order to appear as if you are someone there not everything is excluded from what you believe to be you. In fact you only exclude what is considered as bad, so you appear to be good others to be the bad – except your very special friends.

The only way out is to quit
In order for you to be defined as someone definitive, you exclude what is judged to be bad from your experience of being in a world where there seems to be more than one by blaming it for having caused you to feel bad. Hence whatever is judged to be bad is not your fault but somebody perceived to be outside of you. As this is a confirmation of separation you have hereby fenced off the oneness of life.

But to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, regardless what you appear to be (so-called spiritual or mundane), because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, while any appearances in such a world are limited by time and space. You can compare it to playing a game like Monopoly. Driving a car in Monopoly is an illusion because everything in the world of Monopoly is virtual – also if you master this world and win everything.

Stuck inside the world of Monopoly. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you have taken one round of Monopoly, you are not finished. You keep on doing the exact same round. This is not to be understood as a metaphor for reincarnation, but that you keep on doing the same again and again – and even when you seem to be on the last steps of your journey, it starts all over again. There is no way out, but to stop playing the game.

No belief, no world to hide that which is unbelievable
The above about leaving the game, so that it does not appear to hide that which is real, does not mean, you have to quit the world just like that.** First of all, it is not the world, that you need to quit but the belief that it is real – and this includes what you consider to be spiritual. Secondly, there is no hurry. You can have your cake and eat it too if whatever you seem to experience due to what you have excluded is extended to also include the excluded. By doing so, you simulate real life, which is all-inclusive, and so every moment is a perfect moment.* Nothing is wrong or missing.

Hence there is nothing to search for, and thus nothing to feed your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one – and so there does not appear to be something hiding the oneness of that which is life.

Everybody wants to appear as if they are the good ones, and as being good means, you are better than others, you basically exclude others in order to be good. This is why the world may seem hopeless to you. But do not worry, hopelessness sets you free from the world. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Observing is founded on the idea that it is possible to exclude fragments of reality and fabricate an image based on your judgment of right and wrong. But as reality is that which is one part of it cannot be excluded. It seems, however, possible to use the power of oneness to imagine you have the power to split it up. Hence everything, that involves separation fences off that which is one.

Living in the now is one out of many ways to be exclusive. In this case you exclude the thoughts judged to be of the past or the future, so you to seem to experience a special state of mind called now. But it is just as fabricated, as the anything else in a world that is defined by what is excluded.

To be inclusive is the way of life but not of the world*
Not to separate is not easy in a world defined by time and space. To be defined as someone definitive there, you must separate yourself from what is considered not to be you. Appear as if you are spiritual, for example, everything considered not to be spiritual must be excluded from what you want to appear like, so that the apparent heaviness of an unspiritual world can serve as a background for highlighting you and like-minded as spiritual.

If you have realised, that the only sickness which needs to be healed is the belief that you are someone definitive** and start to use the world as a means to be inclusive and not exclusive, part of you may insist in not including everything – maybe justified by a body, that seems to be sick and to cure it something must be excluded from it.*

No worries. Just take care of the body.*** It cannot hinder you from being inclusive. As long as you also include what you exclude, you are only heading one way, namely to include that which is one.

When there is nothing to hope for, you are free. You may not want that freedom though, because what you are free from is the belief in being someone definitive and when that is undone, there is nothing to hide there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, the world and everything in it, including your children and whatnot are gone together with what you appeared to be there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When there is nothing to hope for, you are free****
When forgetting to be inclusive, desperation may set in, as it seems so hopeless appearing in a world limited by time and space. That is, until you realise, feeling hopeless is good news, because without hope there is nothing to keep you there. You are free to not believe a world defined by time and space can replace that which is you, namely the formlessness of oneness.

If you in the middle of feeling hopeless do not realise, this is the best you could have hoped for but instead feel frustrated, do not worry. Just include feeling hopeless and frustrated totally unedited in the present moment. Whatever is fully included looses its apparent dimension. Hence it is nothing in a world defined by time and space.

And as the inclusion of one feeling momentarily rubs off on so many others, there may be nothing left to feel, which means there is not something to block out the enlightenment of that which is one. But as you most likely hang onto feelings of loss – especially your identity – the enlightenment of that which is one is not bid welcome. Yet glimpses of it may be coming through.

This you can read more about in the article A reintroduction of enlightenment, inner and outer senses.


*) In hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss you can read more about inclusion as a way to undo the belief in separation versus exclusion as a way to enhance this belief.

**) Please do not understand quitting the world as a call to commit suicide. To quit the world is to stop believing, that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, whereas committing suicide enhances that belief.

***) You cannot choose to have the belief in being or having a body undone before honouring your choice of being or having a body, which is done by facilitating the body – for example by brushing its teeth and eating nutritional food. But it is not done by trying to become purer by forcing the body into weird stretches and whatnot, neither by over-exercising. Such ideas are conceived in the mind and should be dealt with there and not projected onto the body. Check hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough about the unfortunate belief of a body-mind connection where what you believe to be is the master of the body.

Life is neither a cause or an effect, there is no karma!

If the car in this image makes you feel in a specific way, you are constructing an effect yourself. The image has no power to create any effect at all.

If the car in this image seems to make you feel in a specific way you are constructing this effect yourself. The image has no power to cause you to feel anything at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not reap as you sow, and you do not get presents from Santa Claus, unless you are superstitious.

Karma promotes the idea, that physical, mental or emotional respond is an effect caused by an action in the past. But when you for example hammer a nail into the wall, you get an immediate physical effect of the nail moving into the wall. And this is not an effect of something you did in the past or in a so-called former life, but of something you do right now, so if you see a connection to the past it is a fabrication of your own.

If you hit your finger while hammering on the nail and remember you once hit somebody else, there is no cause and effect in play except. unless you invent it. Hitting the finger is just an accident. Nothing in your past caused it, norr is there anything set in motion for the future, apart from going to the doctor if the finger was hit very hard.

Karma is a construction of yours
The above conclusion is disappointing if you want causal connections to imply, your appearance as someone specific has a special meaning. However, as that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one, it is completely meaningless to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, so such a connection have to be fabricated.

To suffer from bodily pain just because you accidentally hit your finger does not make you appear to be someone interesting, but by making a connection to for example your father, as if the pain relates to the sadness you seemed to cause him in your childhood, you have a basis for a story of cause and effect, where you and your father are part of something greater, so that you appear to be someone special with a higher purpose.

On top of that, such an invention of cause and effect makes it possible to justify any thought, emotion or action as ´caused´ by something greater, so that destiny can be used to justify everything you think, feel and do. In this way, you appear as innocent and something as guilty. Yet it never works as intended, because having excluded something from yourself by projecting it on something that is judged to be outside of you will not feel innocent but guilty.

If you feel upset and you justify it with what you perceive somebody else to have done or not done, you will feel instant guilt and probably also fear, as you will be afraid of the retaliation you expect from those you have judged to cause you feeling upset.

Every time you look for something, that seems to be able to justify your current state, you fabricate cause and effect – also called karma. As it is all an imagination, you feel the effect of it in the very same moment you imagine this connection. There is no other karma than this imagined connection of cause and effect. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Your construction of karma has no effect in the future but now
Every time you look for something that seems to justify your current state, it will appear to be caused by that and therefore to be an effect of it. Hence your state of mind feels real right now. So this fabrication of cause and effect is not something you will feel in the future but in the same moment, you exclude feelings from yourself by justifying them as caused by something judged to be separated from you.

Most want to believe the idea of karma, because if they are caused by something, the conclusion seems to be they exist.

But if you do not construct this connection, there is no cause. And as an effect cannot exist without a cause and vice versa, there is no specific state of mind. In other words, if you do not justify what you seem to think or feel it has no effect and so karma falls apart.

As the oneness of life is formless, it is without beginning and end and therefore everything. Hence nothing else could have caused it, neither can it cause anything else. In other words, whatever appears as if it is ruled by cause and effect is lifeless.

The concept of karma seems to prove, that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. But this proof is just as silly as when a little child believes Santa Claus is the cause of presents and based on this assumption of cause and effect concludes that Santa is real.


NOTES: 

What is freedom!?

VGR05-7select_032-Edit

What you think you see now is composed of many images, that as rays of light have travelled each their own distance in time before they are picked up by your eyes and transferred to the brain, which compiles them into one image that you think you see now. In an image like this, for example, the sun is about eight minutes older than the palm trees in the front of the image, as it takes the light eight minutes to travel from the sun to the Earth. Everything in between the palm trees and the sun is between a split second and eight minutes old. And the completed image is even older because it takes time for the brain to compile all the past images into one image. In other words, the brain deceives you into believing you are experiencing now, while it is nothing but the past that you are experiencing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Now is not what you think it is
If you look at the sun in this very moment, you do not see how it looks now but eight minutes ago, as this is the time it takes for the light to travel from the sun to your eyes. In other words, what you think you see now is the past.

As the distance to the stars is much bigger, it takes so long time for their images reach you, that they may not even be there, you experience to see them now. And those appearances, that seem close to you, have also travelled in time, so they are from of the past too.

What you seem to see now is a collection of images from the past projected into the future.

Therefore what you seem to experience now, is actually a collage fabricated in the brain of images from the past. Besides the time it takes to make the collage is extrapolated so that the time delay in processing does not interfere with the thoughts or actions, you perceive to happen now. Thus the way you perceive now is an illusion.

There is no past
If you imagine, the sun has a consciousness or special equipment, that makes it able to clearly see the Earth, what it will see now is how you appeared to be eight minutes ago. Then imagine to observe you from a star in such a distance to the Earth, that what it sees now is your birth.

Science has recently found a point so far away in this universe, that they can almost watch the beginning of the universe, as if it is happening now.

In the eyes of the universe there is no past or future – just one perpetual present. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

And so imagine looking at the Earth from a point further away in the universe, where it is the birth of your mother that is seen now. Going on like this both your birth, your mother´s and your grandmother´s is seen by the universe now – also the birth of itself.

There is no future
When the birth of your mother is seen from a specific point in the universe, it appears as if there is a future for her, but from another point in the universe at the exact same moment as her birth is seen, her death is seen as well, so there is no future!

There is no time
Seen from the perspective of the Earth it seems as if time is linear with a past and a future and now in between them. But seen from the perspective of the universe there is no time at all. Everything occurs simultaneously.

There is no before and after – and consequently no reincarnation. It is an idea made up to make the experience of being someone specific in a world defined by time and space seems as if it is meaningful and somehow will last forever.

Everything happens simultaneously. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Everything happens simultaneously. The animation is grabbed from the web.

This can be illustrated by thinking of a TV with one channel showing a sci-fi movie, another one a movie from the past and on yet another one a movie about parallel worlds. But due to your limited mind, you only watch one channel, though all of them are all playing simultaneously.

Linear time is a simulated reality layered on top of one perpetual present.

There is no universe
According to science all the elements coming from the big bang quickly organised themselves into a super pattern, that would have stagnated if completed. But there were a few gaps in it, and due to this imperfection, it started to expand into what is called the universe.

In linear time it seems as if an explosion from a black hole expanded into a world defined by time and space. In reality though it contracted the very same moment, and nothing is left but a memory of that moment. But when the memory is replayed in linear time, it appears as if the world defined by time and space is still there.

When an expansion – like the breath for instance – is over, it is replaced by a contraction. So when the expansion of the universe is over, it is replaced by a contraction, which will be the end of the universe. It has already happened, however, as everything happens simultaneously. The universe therefore begins and ends in the exact same moment. Yet that is also an illusion because the universe is nothing but empty space.

If you hope for love, you will fear not getting it and if you get it, you will fear loosing it. But if you hope for nothing, you have nothing to get or loose and therefore nothing to fear. The animation is grabbed from the web.

If you hope for love, you will fear not getting it, and if you get it, you will fear losing it. But if you hope for nothing, you have nothing to fear.* The animation is grabbed from the web.

There is nothing to hope for
The hope for something to come in the future – love, liberation, awakening, a better world and whatnot – is what keeps the belief in a universe of linear time going on. Especially because hope always is accompanied by fear. First the fear of not getting what you hope for, and when you get it, the fear of losing it.*

This interaction between hope and fear keeps you entangled in a fantasy of a world, where it seems possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one. But as hope is the very reason you entered this fantasy, it cannot be given up while you believe it to be real. However, if you hope for nothing* you have nothing to lose and therefore nothing to fear. And so you are free from your own fantasy!

Reality is the formlessness of that which is one and as that which is formless is endless, a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion.

Freedom is pretending to be in the world instead of believing to be there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you pretend to be in a world where there seems to be more than one instead of believing to be there, you are not bound by it, because even though you appear to be someone ´there´, that which is you is not ´there´. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Freedom is an illusion
Freedom is not real, because it requires more than one to be free from something (or to something), and in reality, there is no more than that which is one. But while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, the relieve it is to hope for nothing* sets you free from the belief that you are someone there, so that you instead pretend to be there**. And where you pretend to be, you are not, so even though you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are not ´there´.**

Help, I Need Somebody

What you appear to be is a construction of thoughts, that if not being witness, does not appear to exist. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

What you appear to be is a construction of thoughts, that has to be witnessed by somebody as if it is someone definitive. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

If you think, you are someone definitive in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you are bound to need help because you cannot appear as someone there without being witnessed. Being helped by somebody or offering support to somebody is a gesture that bears witness to the appearance of you as someone definitive in such a world.

According to an article – recently published in the journal ´Nature Communications´ – a team split a single photon in half and transmitted them to separated labs.

And so the team discovered, the divided particle did not only exists before it was observed, but that it never showed up in both of the labs at the same time. The particle that was not being witnessed by somebody ceased to exist.

Can I Get A Witness
Quantum Physics basically says, that the world only exists when you look at it. Therefore all appearance needs to be witnessed in order for them to appear as if they are there. The whole world is built upon this logic. Nothing in a court is true before it has been proved to be seen or heard by somebody. If something is not witnessed, it has not happened and therefore considered non-existing.

As the world according to science consist of nothing solid, the perception of it as tangible is something, that constantly needs to be acknowledged in order for it to appear as it is so.

As one plus one is two, it follows that two plus two is four and so on. But if one plus one is not two, the whole system falls apart. Likewise, if those appearing to witness your existence do not exist except in your imagination, then neither do you.

Groups only acknowledge those, who are adjusted to their group. If you do not follow the rule as of a group, you will be punished as a traitor. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This is why it is so important to socialize – whether it is in the mind, on social media or in the so-called real world – because in this way you confirm that there are others, whom in return seem to bear witness to you as someone real. It works the best if you are confirmed by a group – for example a country, a football team or a family – that you imagine to part of, because groups of us and them, makes you and your group appear to be stronger and more real. Your group claims to have the truth, and by judging what the other group have as false, your group becomes close-knit as the right one.

Most religious groups work like this, regardless they are old school or into more exotic ideas like mindfulness, coming from the heart and whatnot. The same mechanics works also for a football club, a fan club, a political party, a workplace, a twosome or any other kind of group gatherings. They all have – often unspoken – rules, that most try very hard to follow, as that makes feel part of something bigger. Those who object to the rules are punished so that the group has a scapegoat until the sinner has learned to adjust. In the courtroom, this is called justice.

The unenlightened tells you, that what you appear to be is very special and part of something greater, whereas the enlightened tells you, what you appear to be is nothing and you are not part of something, because there is no more than that which is one and it requires more than one to be part of something.

Wasn´t Born To Follow
Jesus denied following the demand of the group, who demanded him to withdraw, that he was the son of god and not of the world. But he did not help them to bear witness to a world defined by time and space. Instead, he kept comparing himself to something not to be identified by time and space. As that always is seen as treason to those who believe in a world to be identified by time and space, he was judged to be excluded by crucifixion.

Even though upholding the appearance of being someone definitive is very hard work and the price is suffering, most persons want to remain in the club of fellow believers and discard anything or anyone not bearing witness to the belief in being someone definitive.

Hanging on the cross he was not acknowledged anymore by his followers, and the one he seemed to follow himself also left him. He was totally on his own, which would have been unbearable for anybody believing to be someone definitive, but necessary for having this belief undone, as to have followers or follow someone requires more than one, and as that which is one is formless it is endless, there is no more than one. Hence there is fear of death or being alone.

It makes no difference
One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one says, that what you believe to be – namely someone definitive – is an illusion, that seems to cover up the endlessness of that which is you. As this implies, what you appear to be is nothing, most prefer to be something, even though that seems to have an end. But the end has been softened with notions of heaven and reincarnation so that you can dream of being part of something greater where you forever will be someone special.

Alcoholics like to follow a cure for hangovers, provided that it does not involve eliminating the cause of it, namely the alcohol. Likewise, those believing to be someone definitive like to be cured for suffering, if it does not involve eliminating the cause of it, namely the belief that they are somebody definitive..

The enlightened is expelled for exposing the experience of you as someone special as a deception, and those saying you are someone special and part of something greater are worshipped for bearing witness to you as someone important.

Fortunately one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one sees no difference between being expelled or worshipped, because both ways attempt to witness that a world where there seems to be more than one is real, and as there is no more than that which is one, there is nothing to witness.
