Be happy you are nothing because reality has no room for something

Updated May 17, 2022

When choosing to see everything in the world of duality as symbols of non-duality, there is no more to change or search for. Every moment is the perfect moment, because you enjoy all symbols of that which is life.

When too many clothes are added to the body, it appears to be hidden. But it is still there. Actually, it is what makes the clothes appear to move. A body with many layers of clothes can be compared to a world where there seems to be more than one. The diversity of appearances seems to hide there is no more than that which is One and, therefore, choices to be made.

As long as it seems so, one recommended choice is to see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as a symbol of that which is One. When this is your choice, you do not have a need to make more choices because they are all a symbol of oneness. Thus you have the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One undone.

If you look at what you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, there seem to be many choices – but if you look at it from the point of view of oneness, there are no choices.

A computer does not know, that the total of data it has compiled about someone’s personality is believed to be someone specific because all the personalities in its archive are made of the same zeros and ones. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»Computers don’t have experiences or opinions of their own. They’re not limited by cultural references, and they don’t find certain personality traits, lies, or interests good or bad. Computers don’t understand that certain personalities are more socially desirable, … Computers don’t care if you’re a man, woman, old, young, black, or white.« From an article in Wired.

The way that which is One looks at your appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to how a computer looks at you as you appear based on info from Facebook and other websites. The computer does not know that this collection of data, called a personality, considers itself a living organism with its own choices. In a computer, all data consists of ones and zeros, and since it sees none outside itself, the computer does not know its data is used to imagine being a free human being with an independent will.

Ultimately speaking, there are no choices to make because there is no more than that which is One. But believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you must constantly choose between something to make it seem there is more than one.

A microphone can amplify the voice, but whether someone sings loud or not, nothing changes in the microphone.

Oneness can be compared to a computer. No matter how much music you add and whether it is pirated or not, the computer remains the same. Also, if you share the music with others or delete it. Nothing has changed. A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to the music that appears to come from a computer. In reality, the world is not there, and no matter.

Likewise, what and where you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, nothing changes that which is real, namely oneness. But since oneness is formless, you cannot take anything away or create something from it. Therefore, since a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy, what and where you appear to be it, symbolises that which makes it possible to fantasise.

The above is not meant to say that it does not matter what music you prefer and who you share it with when you seem to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Because when you honour your choice of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you can undo it. For example, by perceiving all experiences as symbols of oneness. By doing that, everything becomes abstract. Thus you are on a non-definable way to the formlessness of oneness.

All experiences are fabricated by the brain regardless of where you perceive them to come from. The brain, however, can only process something definable, so it cannot display the formlessness of oneness.

If you only look for the patterns in this pic of a table leg on my floor, there is no way to define something there and so you will end up seeing nothing.

If you do not look for the world, you do not see it. Thus nothing covers the formlessness of oneness. A way of ‘seeing’ nothing is to look for patterns in the appearances you believe to see, instead of defining them as objects.

Anything you believe to see is an image constructed by thoughts (see Eyes do not see). Therefore, if you do not expect thoughts to mean something specific, you ‘see’ abstract patterns floating around. Hence thoughts do not seem to have the power to hide the formlessness of oneness. It is, of course, not advisable to space out like this if you want to remain as someone definitive, or if you are a parent, for example.

When not defining, you are following your nature. But, on the other hand, being someone definitive is not natural. It requires separation to be definitive and that is not possible because oneness is formless, thus endless.

You are not going to know that a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy made out of nothing if you distance yourself from the experience of it through meditation or other means of detachment. But by involving yourself in it, you will remember that it is make-believe.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not honour your choice in believing to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot undo it.

The belief only seems real when you feel you are somebody. Thus your choice to appear as someone definitive is honoured when feelings are included unedited. Apart from making it more fun to appear as someone, inclusion, eventually, undoes the belief that you are someone because when all feelings are included, there is nothing to define you as someone definitive.

You cannot change this cat in this pic, but you can change your perception of it.

Alexius has a machine that feeds his cats with specific amounts of food at certain times. If the cats think the food arrives there due to prayers or good behaviour, they are mistaken. It is automatic, and no matter how they treat Alexius, the machine is unaffected. Likewise, regarding what seems to happen with you are in a world to be defined by time and space.

You do not reap what you sow. You have no say in what will happen. Like in a cpmputer game, nothing can happen that has not already been programmed. So if you seem to reap as you sow, this is just the way it has been planned. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brains script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

You cannot change the script. But you can change how to perceive it. For example, you can choose to perceive something as karma, the way of love or lessons to learn. However, perceptions like these will uphold the belief in being someone defined by time and space. And believing that you are bound to end.

However, if you can choose to perceive your appearance and any other as a symbol of the formlessness of oneness, all appearances, though they appear to be different, seem the same. When there is no difference, there is no space separating anything. Thus there is nothing and therefore not something to end. So even though the appearance of you as someone definitive ends, nothing ends.

A world defined by time and space is nothing but empty space in which thoughts are constructed to appear substantial. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

An electronic media fabricate an image of this article out of zeros and ones so that the article makes you forget the media. But it cannot do that by itself. Somebody has added an app to the electronic media that knows how to make zeros and ones appear as something although they are nothing. In the same manner, you could say that somebody has added an app to that which is One that can simulate a world where there seems to be more than one.

In this metaphor, the app is the brain. There is no difference between it and what you appear to be in the sense that both are equally illusionary because oneness is formless, thus endless. Therefore, since appearing to be someone definitive is meaningless, you are always looking for meaning. However, no matter what you find, you doubt it because unconsciously, you know you are nothing.

Not denying this, the appearance of something fades out. Thus the formlessness of oneness does not seem to be hidden.

The only power you have regarding what seems to happen in a TV is to turn it off. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You have no power to change anything that seems to happen on a TV. The only control you have is to turn off the TV. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Whether you experience having the power of now or any other kind of power, it is an illusion. The only thing you can do is turn off the belief in being and having more than that which is One. An easy way to do this is to perceive all experiences as a symbol of that which makes it possible to see them, namely that which is one. By doing that, the symbols fade away while you have fun exploring them. Eventually, there does not appear to be any symbols hiding what they symbolise.

It takes a lot of energy to uphold the belief that a world where there seems to be more than one is real, but it requires no strength to turn off that belief.
