Since peace is oneness and it is formless, thus endless, 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 used as 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 to others. The more special you look on social media, the more you get likes and/or followers. But 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 most likely took something from somebody else to get famous. There is no way to survive in a world where there seems to be more than one without physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically continually 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 be and have more by profiting 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 more, resulting in others getting less, maybe nothing. Regardless you are rich or poor, you know this is the way of the world. Consequently, you always fear others will take away from you 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. The more you have, the more you can take from others and be respected by others believing in the system.

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 consider those who have more as happy. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It is naive to think, you can be equal in a world where there seems to be more than one. In such a world the goal is to take as much as possible from others and give them as little as possible – just like in a game like Monopoly, which mirrors the idea of a world where there seems to be more than one.

Idealists say this is wrong. Everybody should have an equal amount of everything. However, if they really want a world where there seems to be more than one would fall apart because it is founded on the belief that it is possible to be and have more. They prevent that by always wanting more equality. In other words, they are hypocrites using nice words to hide they are too weak to play the world’s game as it is.

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, so no one smarter or stronger takes what you have grabbed from them. This 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, thus formless and endless, there is no more than peace. That is why you cannot find it. And even if you could, you would not know what to look for, as your idea of peace is the lack of war, whereas it is the lack of more. However, you can realise what is not peace, namely your daily life. And if you choose to see that as a symbol of peace, it becomes the stepping stone to undo the belief in separating, thus not fencing off the peace of oneness.

If you are a civilised person, you pay for what you take – at least when there is no other way to do it without being exposed as a criminal. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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. Hence everybody looks for ways to get more and not lose what they obtained.

However, you can only get more by taking it from somebody left with less. As this generates guilt, you always fear retribution. So when you, in search of more, think there is a strange feeling in your fingers, you assume it comes from your cell phone, for example, and that somebody is trying to control you via technology to turn you into an enslaved person they can take advantage of you.

Although nothing proves your theory, you refer to the odd feeling in the hand as proof. Then, to disguise that this is a feeling of guilt you have projected onto your hand, you place the responsibility for the perceived pain on technology or somebody you believe conspires against you. Hence the guilty one has been found, and you are off the hook. Read more about feeling off the hook by finding a scapegoat in The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

You do not get peace from searching for more, but from not looking for anything because peace cannot be seen.

It is a general idea that most people are victims of the rich, and their wealth, which they have gotten from profiting from others, should be distributed amongst others so they can be equal. But everybody is already that in the sense that they share the same 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 having 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 seeing a world where there seems to be more than one. A capitalist is very straightforward about the desire for more money and power. The socialists, however, hide it behind do-gooder talk about more money and power to the people. Those who claim to be spiritual may not have a desire for more money and power. Yet, 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 that which is One, and since it is formless, thus endless, it is everything.

It is
not possible to profit from reality. It is that which is One, and it takes more than one to profit off something. Hence it is only possible to benefit from something that is not real. Consequently, this is what those requiring money for so-called spiritual teachings are doing.

This is not to say that it is wrong to make a profit. But that 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.

Hence you do not get more free and self-assured when spending money on new-age courses. However, when applying Alexius’ Duality Hacks, there is no need for freedom and self-assurance because you become indifferent to being someone at all.
