More than One is the doostep to that which is One

A world defined by time and space is not about what you are but how exciting you appear. The more special you look on social media, the more you get likes and/or followers. However, to keep your followers, you must constantly invent ways to look more exciting than others.

But no matter what you achieve, there is always the risk that somebody will take it from you, like you probably ripped it from somebody else to get famous. There is no way to survive without physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically taking something from somebody else – for example, food, a point of view, love, money or power – if you want to remain as someone substantial in a tangible world.

So when you go shopping, it is to get as much as possible for as little as possible from somebody else. For the shop, it is the other way around. It tries to provide you with as little as possible for as much as possible within the law. You work to make as much money as possible for as little effort as possible. And the company tries to give you less and make you work hard to profit from you.

The strongest and/or most clever will take the most, resulting in others getting less, maybe nothing. Whether rich or poor, you know this is the world’s way. Consequently, you always fear others will take what you have grabbed from them.

In the civilised world, taking from others has been organised, so you do not have to feel guilty about taking more than you need or be too afraid that somebody will take what you lawfully have taken. The legal means for taking from others within the civilised system is money. So the more you have, the more you can take from others, thus being respected as successful by those believing in the system.

But even though taking from others has been organised so you can do it and look like a civilised person in a civilised world, you must continuously defend yourself. Otherwise, someone smarter or stronger takes what you have grabbed from others. There is no way to escape this because as long as you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you always need more to survive. Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings have no solutions for not feeling guilty about that or making the world a better place where everybody share everything with everyone. Instead, it is about undoing the belief that there is more than one.

However, until that is done, it is beneficial to perceive getting more as a symbol of oneness because then it becomes the doorstep to that which is One.

It is a cherished idea that people are victims of the rich, and their wealth, which they have gotten from profiting from others, should be distributed amongst others so all can be equal. But everybody is already the same in the sense that they share the greed to get as much as possible for as little as possible at anybody’s expense. In that context, there is no difference between those who have much and those who do not, except that the rich are more talented at exploiting others than the poor.

To get more is the lowest common factor for everybody who believes in a world where there seems to be more than one. The capitalists are straightforward about the desire for more money and power. But the socialists hide it behind do-gooder talk about more money and power for the people. Those who claim to be spiritual may not desire more money and power. However, they still have the passion for more, namely more love, peace and purity.

We all want more. That is the way to uphold the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one. By acknowledging that, we acknowledge we have chosen to believe there is more than One. So when we realise more does not feel better, Hence we can undo our choice.

A world where there seems to be more than one is based on the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. That is why your instinct always tells you that the solution to a problem is more, and happiness comes from being and having more.

In different ways, Gandhi and others failed to establish peace in their part of the world. The reason is simple. Peace is impossible in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world is based on being and having more than one. And you do not get peace from searching for more but from not looking for anything because peace cannot be seen.

Since it requires more than one to describe something, oneness cannot be described, and since oneness is formless and thus endless, anything describable is an illusion. Hence the description in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings should not be taken literally. Nor should they be taken as pointers to oneness because it requires more than one to point to something.

In this context, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings point toward the illusion of experiencing, realising or understanding something because it requires more than one to be conscious of anything.

It is not possible to profit from reality. It is that which is One, and it takes more than one to profit from something. That is not to say it is wrong to make a profit. But since it is a product of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, this belief, thus the suffering it entails, is enhanced.

That is why you do not get more free and self-assured when spending money on new-age courses. Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks are free, and when you apply them, there is no need for freedom and self-assurance because you become indifferent to being someone.
