Since peace is oneness it is formless, thus endless, so there is nothing but peace

To take from others has been organised, so everybody appears to be civilised, although they all try to figure out how to get as much as possible for as little as possible within the rules of society. If you do not follow them, you will be a scapegoat for people’s guilty conscience about exploiting others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 always 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 and for as little as possible. 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 go to work to be and have more, but your boss tries to give you less so that he/she can profit from you. And you both attempt to work as little as possible for as much as possible.

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 away 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 grab 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 and be respected 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. That is the same for everybody, no matter what and where they seem to be in this game of appearing to be and have more.

However, since peace is oneness, you cannot find it, as that requires more than one. But you can realise what is not peace, namely more than one, if you perceive that as a symbol of peace, more than one becomes the stepping stone to the peace of oneness.

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 in 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. However, the socialists hide it behind do-gooder talk about more money and power for the people. Those who claim to be spiritual may not have a desire for more money and power. But they still have the passion for more, namely more love, peace and purity. But since there is no more than that which is One, whatever you believe in getting more of is nothing.

When you stop looking for more, you see that you already have everything because that which is you is no different from oneness, which is is everything because it is formless, thus endless.

Since 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, your instinct always tells you that the solution to a problem is more. That is why most believe those who have more are happy.

In different ways, Gandhi and others tried to establish peace in their part of the world. But they failed. The reason is simple. Peace is not possible 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.

It is not possible to profit from reality. It is that which is One, and it takes more than one to profit off 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.

Consequently, 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.
