Hope (9)


Understand your job will go the way it is meant to go. It will go as a singular movement in only one way. Understand your job will go in one way and not in any particular way. Understand that the one way has no thoughts in it. 

Understand that one way is a flow of only light and sound. That is the way your job transforms and will either go or remain. That is the way a body transforms as light and sound. That is the way your movement will transform. 

Understand that the singular movement of your body appears as a job to you in your mind as thoughts. Understand you cannot hope for the body to transform. Understand your body will transform the way it is meant to transform. 

Understand that you are simply moving! Understand that this singular movement includes better life, better job, better wife, better husband, better things, whatever you hope you want and wish, but it is all an illusion of light and sound. 

Understand that you cannot hope for light and sound. Understand that light and sound are in every moment of life and your daily life. Understand that the singular movement of light and sound cannot be in any other way than it is in any particular moment. 

Understand what you want in any moment is an illusion of sound, including hope, and the illusion cannot be other than what the illusion is in the moment. Understand that the mind will hope and that is its job. 

The mind is hoping so that you may understand that there is no point in hoping. Understand that hope happens to you so that you may understand that nothing begins in life nor ends in life for you to hope for. 

Life is intelligence. Everything is in its place. Everything is in its place so that you may understand that everything is in its place. 

One day you will understand that you are just hoping in your mind for thoughts to come. What are you going to do with thoughts? They are after all sound in life and life will flow as light and sound. 

Life will transform. Life is a wave of light and sound. It will transform whether you like it or not. Whether you hope or do not hope, life will go in only one way.  

The enlightened do not hope. Hope as an illusion of sound never happens to them.

Editor’s Note:
The more the illusions, projected by the energy of life, in man’s waking state are clarified in these articles, the clearer becomes the understanding of reality. What is not gradually and patiently is revealing what is. The mind with thoughts is a remarkable canvas gifted by the intelligence of life for creativity, imagination, personality, the entire panoply of emotion, spirituality and belief-systems. This canvas represents man’s journey towards knowing who he really is. What a beautiful picture of the evolution of man.

German Translator‘s Note: 
The hopes of human beings relate to certain aspects of life, such as health, leisure, work, partnership. The sages, as in this article, explain life as a singular inseparable entity, a singular flow of light and sound that manifests the illusion of separate aspects of life and specific times. Neither is work separated from leisure time, nor past from future. Everything happens as it is meant to happen, as a singular movement of light and sound. This article about the illusion of hope gives the understanding reader patience and unconditionality.
