CANCELLEX ‘The Enlightenment of that which is One’ cannot be known, but glimpses of it can

Updated June 2, 2022

People have extraordinary ideas about Enlightenment. Some think it is pure love, consciousness or the ability to see through all illusions. But seeing or being something requires more than one. Thus the Enlightenment they are dreaming about is not the Enlightenment of that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Often those talking about Enlightenment try to give the impression that they know what it is. So if you have chosen to believe their explanations, you probably dismiss the Enlightenment of that which is One when it hits you because it has nothing to do with anything anybody claims to know. Enlightenment of that which is One is formless, so it cannot be described or defined.

Therefore, if somebody refers to experiences of Enlightenment, it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One. Since it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be experienced. But glimpses of it can be experienced–  just like you use the outward-facing senses to experience a tangible world that appears to be outside of you, you can use the inward-facing senses to become aware of an abstract world with glimpses of Enlightenment inside you.

If you tend to sense the world of the outward-facing senses in an auditory way, the inward-facing senses may not reveal visual glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One but auditory ones, so instead of a revelation of light, it is a revelation of ethereal harmonies. Just like the outward-facing senses see, hear feel and taste a world outside you, the inward-facing senses do the same inside you.

In short, when the outward-facing senses are partly closed, you experience glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One with the inward-facing senses in the same way as you see, hear, feel and taste something with the outward-facing senses. On the other hand, if the latter is fully turned off, the Enlightenment of that which is One is bid welcome. However, as already said, this is not an experience, as it takes more than one to be aware of something.

A staircase seems to make you feel, that there is something on top to be experienced.

A staircase implies more on top, so if you go up there, you feel that you experience more and thus feel more alive. But in reality, you cannot be more alive. That takes more than one, and life is that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.
