ONE as described in the Platonic dialogues by
"…cannot be many. Consequently it cannot have any parts
or be a whole… And if it has no parts, it cannot have a
beginning or an end or a middle… Therefore, if the one
has neither beginning nor end, it is without
limits…Consequently the one has no shape… It cannot be
either in another or in itself… It cannot be in motion
or at rest…It cannot be the same as another or other
than it self…It cannot be other than another or the same
as itself… Thus the one cannot be other than. Or the
same as, either itself or another…It cannot be like or
unlike anything, whether itself or another…Further, the
one being such as we have described, will not be either
equal or unequal either to itself or to another…The one
cannot be younger or older than, or the same age with,
either itself or another…It cannot even occupy time at
all… Therefore the one is in no sense is…It cannot,
then, ‘be’ even to the extent of ‘being’ one… etc.
Further things that are ‘not one’ do not possess unity
either; if they did they would not be ‘not one’ in every
Existence and non-existence:
Existence has no conceivable Limits. It is an attribute
of the Real One (The Creator). Any thing, whether an
immediate object of perception or a matter of
conception, other than the Real ONE, does not possess
the attribute of Existence.
example, in saying: “This is an Apple”, one is
attributing existence to a given apple. This is
indirectly framing the apple within a frame of Oneness.
Without such activity, one cannot possibly isolate the
idea of an apple in thought.
However, Real Existence, being only an attribute of the
ONE (The Creator), cannot be defined as "is". In other
words, one cannot make sense saying, "existence is…"
because in saying this, one would be attributing
existence to existence itself which is the same as
denying the very nature of existence or adding something
to a complete thing.
able to truly KNOW Existence, one has to first
understand that such Knowledge is related to the Wholly
Mind and not the Thinking Mind, and the very innate
nature of knowledge that pertains to the Wholly Mind
banishes the problems related to the non-authentic
knowledge acquired by the senses: The Activity of
Directing Vision Outside the Self and towards a Reality
absent from the ever present nature of BEING.
In other words, the Real One (The
Creator’s IMAGE), that is the only true form of
existence, is of a nature
similar to the sun. The Sun
is forever shining; however, our sight is not quite
aware of the role it plays in making the very nature of
sight possible, because our sight is too distracted by
the objects lit by the sun.
Sun in the Ancient Wisdom is the Metaphor of the Wholly
Mind. The Wholly Mind is the Reflection of the Real ONE
and the Link between the Realm of Eternity and the Realm
of Space & Time - between God and Man. Its very
inconceivable essence reflects the absoluteness of the
Faculty that is responsible for thought is not the Real
Mind, but the Soul; because, thought is an activity that
cannot be maintained without attributing Oneness to
objects of perception and conception, yet the Real Mind
is in constant state of Unity and harmony with the
Unlimited ONENESS, which is a state of BEING and not
Thinking and Attributing.
order to conceive of any given thing, the Soul isolates
the image of the thing within an illusory frame of
Oneness called thought.
identify any object of perception or conception, one
must first attribute oneness to it i.e. an apple, an
occasion or an idea.
in truth, Real Oneness is interconnected like color or
shape is to an apple and therefore cannot be Isolated
within any frame or attributed to any thing but The
Nothing is more self-evident than Existence. However,
the very nature of defining Existence is
Contra-Existence (illusory); because, to engage in it
means to step out from the ever prevailing nature of
Existence is an Eternal Presence, an eternal
Consciousness associated with being at-one with The
Creator through the Wholly Mind.
Creator is the only JUDGE in Existence,
at-One with the Creator means admitting to the upper
Doctrine in Spirit & Body; and this is the Wisdom that
distinguishes the Wholly Mind from the Acquired Mind.
Wholly Mind is distinguished not by the amount of
information that He has, but by this very simple Element
of admittance, which wins HIM the Trust of the Creator.
with the Wholly Mind means constant Immunity against
Judgmental or Interpretive Vision.
real Knowledge does not refer to the Power of Thought
but to the Power of Being immune to the Soul’s activity
of judging which interrupts real Vision and forces
vision away from the Oneness. The Soul practice this
behavioral activity to prove its importance. However,
this happens on the expense of Authentic Consciousness:
The Soul’s True Freedom and Salvation.
one attributes a Form of Existence to the Object of his
Judgment, and hence, one becomes immediately aware of
the Contrary state to that object. Such awareness to
contrariety distracts Real Vision away from ONENESS (The
Creator’s Image or The SELF Within) and into
Multiplicity & Alienation – a sort of distraction that
is associated with the most ancient form of Evil
initiated by the Spiritual Devil, “Harat” (From the
Arabic term “Ihtar” which means grew confused.
