Oneless Oneness by Marcel Eschauzier is one of those rare books by someone who has found Truth and wants to help others find it, too. Unlike many other books on similar subjects, Marcel is not religious. He has no dogma to memorize, no chanting, no holy books or belief system. He is an engineer, and he approaches the Tao with logic. Since I am trained in the sciences, I find his thinking both fascinating and compelling. No, I didn’t have the KEY INSIGHT and suddenly reach nirvana from reading this book. But I have found concepts worth my time to consider, and truths to check against my perceptions. Eschauzier begins with the famous quote from the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu:
“ The Tao that can be Told
Is not the True Tao;
Names that can be Named
Are not True Names.”
Thus he admits from the outset that an author cannot give the reader his experience. The reader must find it personally. But, since we do not actually exist as individual people, this is a paradox.
I have been drawn to other writers who have tried to explain the importance of “NOW.” But none have put it so succinctly as Marcel Eschauzier: “The past doesn’t change. The future isn’t there yet. Only the present changes.” Accepting that we live in the perpetual NOW, and everything in the NOW, including us, is in a state of change, is both scary and reassuring. I like to imagine that I can plan for the future. But I can only act now. Because I am not in control, I am part of the NOW and I will be part of the future. Nothing changes because of how I feel about it. In this system, the reader is left with the ultimate paradox that free will is the same as predestination. If you enjoy thinking about how you perceive the world, this book will give you much to cogitate on. And, according to the author, if you do it right, the present will be so enthralling, you will truly see it as your life.
