[√] To welcome the peace of oneness

Hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life was about how a world where there seems to be more than one appears to hide that which is One. However, it is impossible to hide oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Therefore, since seeing more than one is a fata morgana, it is the belief that it is substantial, hence authentic, which seems to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

But like children prefer to suppress Santa Claus is fake to feel excited about his presents, most choose to believe the weird story of a world where there seems to be more than one to feel excited by its endless possibilities. Having so many choices sounds more inspiring than oneness because it has nothing to choose from since that requires more than one. But when you realise that endless options are frustrating, you appreciate the peace of having nothing to desire.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, peace is the absence of war. But in oneness, peace is not the absence of something because there is no more than that which is One. That is peace.

Feeling at peace in a world where there seems to be more than one depends on excluding disturbances. However, the exclusion of something enhances separation, thus, loneliness.

So, you will not get real peace before you realise exclusion goes against life. However, seen from the perspective of being someone, this realisation is depressing because, without being exclusive, you do not seem unique. Nevertheless, that is what makes you feel alive because life is for everyone.

Excitement is based on the idea that there must be something larger, better, faster, wilder, deeper or purer. Therefore, since you always look for more, you never have enough.

You expect a computer game to make you more excited than daily life. And as long as you believe there is more to find by exploring deeper levels in the game, the excitement continues. Likewise, you participate in a world where there seems to be more than one to have more fun than in that which is One. But since oneness is formless, thus endless, a world where there seems to be more than one is fake. Hence the fun you get there is deceptive.

On the other hand, the peace you get in oneness is genuine because when there is no more than One, there is nothing to disturb you.

Questions and uncertainty arise from not being at peace, which comes from believing to be in a capsule of time and space instead of nobody in the formlessness of oneness. Within the context of this belief, there are answers to questions like how to build a house, go from one place to another, and similar practical things. But there are no answers to existential questions because a world encapsulated by time and space is as fictitious as a computer game.

Although excitement always is ignited by something that has an end, you still expect it to bring something everlasting. But when you accept you are mistaken, you can do without excitement, thus having the peace of oneness.

When not rushing around to get excited about this and that, boredom will reveal the peace of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Perhaps you are a fool running after more. Still, you are not stupid, so when you realise that more is never enough and whatever you get more of entails more suffering, you will automatically correct the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

A world where there seems to be more than one is all about the excitement of imagining what the future will bring. But when there is nothing to hope for, it is pretty dull believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Fortunately, the more bored you are, the more you welcome that which is One.

You may blame the world for not having enough. But the world is not the reason. It is the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. You have chosen to believe this. And you will not change your choice as long as you hope for a better future triggered by an exceptional person, the latest gadget or your transformation into something higher, for example.

But when you realise it is an endless quest for more, where you never get enough, you are ready not to choose the excitement of more than one but the peace of oneness. However, you cannot choose the latter, as that requires more than one. But you can decide not to look for excitement. And without it, there is peace.

The above is not meant to make you feel guilty about wanting more (or less). On the contrary, this desire is needed to uphold a world where there seems to be more than one. Hence looking for more, you attest to the belief in being there. But you can be faithful to this belief while having it undone if you perceive becoming and having more as a symbol of that which is one. The more you do that, the more the need for more fades out, and thus the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

Hack #2.2 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality is not meant to stop you from being excited about something. Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not about controlling or avoiding something but undoing the belief that there is something.

The undoing of this belief occurs automatically when you apply one or more of Alexius’ Duality Hacks. For example, if you perceive your experiences as a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience them, namely that which is One, they all become the same. Therefore, since there is nothing to establish their apparent difference to make a difference, it seems exciting to undo the belief that there is anything to be excited about.

Even though this image is flat and basically is made up of repeating lines, you may choose to experience the illusion of a person in the distance, as this appeal to your desire for excitement.

This image is flat, and Mona Lis is not behind the repeating lines. Yet you may choose to see her hidden in the distance because it appeals to your longing for mystery and excitement. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

How come so many people like to watch a movie? Probably to experience something more exciting.

How come some like to watch porn? Maybe because it seems more exciting.

How come most look forward to a holiday? Perhaps they imagine it will be more exciting?

On holiday you can attend special events fabricated to improve the feeling of pleasure, so you have an experience that is out of the ordinary. A movie – porn or not – is produced with the same purpose: to entertain and give you an extraordinary experience.

But the experiences of your everyday life are also produced to entertain you. For example, even though what you see, according to science, is nothing but empty space, the brain renders it in 3D to excite you. See, The closer you look, the less you believe it is real. Compared to this, oneness appears pretty ordinary. It is non-dimensional and timeless. Hence there is nothing to look forward to, thus not something to get excited about. On the other hand, that is why oneness is so peaceful.

Questions and uncertainty arise from not being at peace, which comes from believing to be someone definitive living in a capsule of time and space instead of nobody in the formlessness of oneness. Within the context of this belief, there are answers to questions like how to build a house, go from one place to another, and similar practical things. But there are no answers to existential questions because a world encapsulated by time and space is as fictitious as a computer game.

Every time you do something to eliminate feeling inferior, you are reminded about why you do it: because you feel inadequate. Hence that feeling is enhanced the more you try to stop it. And the belief in separation is why you feel inferior, this belief gets more robust. Hence the peace of oneness seems far away.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You must believe to be someone definitive to get excited in a world defined by time and space because otherwise, you cannot get the excitement from a specific experience. However, believing you are someone definitive feels limiting, whereas not caring about it feels so peaceful that you do not need the excitement from something specific.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Excitement is always about attaining something specific in the future, perhaps, the love from someone you secretly admire. Should you get it, you start to imagine how exciting it would be to have babies, thus, suppressing getting the love you dreamed about did not make you feel at peace.   because  Excitement is always about attaining something specific in the future,

But excitement excludes peace and vice versa. Peace is not a fantasy of something better to come later. It is one perpetual present, and since it has no future, there is no excitement in peace. In other words, peace is not about finishing something. It is that which is One, and oneness never ends because it is formless.
