Strangers in the night

In old scriptures, being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is often compared to being in a world of darkness. Someone who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One knows this is so. The world we believe to see is a construction of thoughts added together to make it look like there is something where there is nothing. The below story illustrates this:

There ar
e no streetlights outside Alexius’ home, so when he wakes up in the middle of the night, his home is dark.

Nevertheless, it is easy for Alexius to find the way to the toilet in the dark. He has learned where everything is and can use certain things as navigation points so that they seem to ‘light’ up the way. But it is all imagined and put together by trial and error. Actually, he stumbled quite a few times, learning to ‘see’ his way in the dark.

But he cannot ‘see’ anything other than the way he has thought up. Maybe he can learn ‘seeing’ beyond that if he studies. But what he learns to ‘see’ will be another fabrication because the whole house is dark.

The way from Alexius’ bed to the toilet can be compared to everybody’s way in a world where there seems to be more than one. You believe in seeing something specific, then something interpreted as different, wherefore you assume you know where you go. But you move in the dark. Whatever you believe in seeing is a construction of thought you have learned to define in a specific way (read more about that here). Without this knowledge, there is nothing to see. Neither is there anything hidden or something to be understood except that everything you believe in seeing is make-believe (read more about that here).

When you do not care to find a way through the darkness, what you have learned to see disappears – also darkness because the Enlightenment of that which is One set in. It is not a light that can be compared to the sun or similar artificial sources that lights up something. There is nothing to light up because there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to be aware of something.

You can compare the Enlightenment of that which is One to making a video call on your computer to it. There is so much light on the screen that you cannot see it or anything else until the call is over, and the screen again simulates a world where there seems to be more than one. However, now you know it is a fake, so you know appearing to be there is make-believe. Thus you do not feel victimised by the world but have fun pretending to be someone there.
