Nothing to escape

That you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is your choice. This does not mean you can change anything in such a world. Yet you can change the choice of being there – or rather believing to be there. And as what you appear to be is the choice, the way to undo it is not to choose.** Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Those chanting and/or repeating a mantra seems just as far away from the present moment as alcoholics and drug addicts. Though their use of tools is different, the purpose is the same, namely to escape the moment as it is and manipulate it into a state of happiness until they are so full of it that their (self)hatred seems forgotten.

You cannot be aware of happiness though without also being aware of its contrast sadness, so the two feelings replace each other all the time.*

In the formlessness of that which is one, there is no sadness to escape from, because it takes more than one to be sad. Besides formlessness is endless, so there is nowhere to escape, unless you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

But as they want happiness to stay, they consume more alcohol, do more chanting or more repetition of mantras until they doze off, assuming that sleeping all over again and again until they can sleep no more will make the fear of sadness go away. In short, they mistake heaven for being asleep.

Closing your eyes, however, will not magically transfer you to heaven. But if the world where you appear to be instead is perceived with eyes wide open, you can see what and where you have chosen to be and change that choice, if you do not like what you see.**

This is not meant to say, that you can choose to change yourself and/or the world where you appear to be, but that you can choose to have the belief that you are someone there undone.

PART 2:
As said in the above drinking alcohol, chanting or meditating is just the same. This is not to say though, that there is something else, that is better to do since no matter what you choose to do, you can only do so because you believe to be a doer. And being someone is the root of all problems.

This the none-doer senses, whereas the doer thinks, it will make a difference whether one chooses to chant, spread love, change the political system or whatnot. But it does not matter. Just like it does not matter what colour of car you choose in a game like Monopoly since it is not a car but just a symbol of it.

There is only room for one perception in the none-doer, namely to see everything as symbols of that which is one, and so everything in a world where there seems to be more than one ceases to have other meaning that being a symbol – no matter if the symbol has the colour of love or hate.***

While the non-doer still appears to have a body, the non-doer is free to do, what seems doable, because there is no one doing it.

In other words, when everything you seem to do is perceived as a symbol of that which is one, what you accomplish is nothing but another symbol of oneness, which means nothing has been done. You are a non-doer.

Everything in the world – whether it appears to be so-called spiritual or not – can be compared to a radio. Whatever a radio seems to send out into it is not produced by it. It just broadcast what it receives. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You cannot cut your head off and see what you are thinking because there are no thoughts of yours there. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

PART 3:
That Alexius never think does not mean, there are no thoughts inside his head. There are lots of them. But they are not his – just like the songs coming out of a radio does not belong to it.

Every appearance, whether it is perceived to be so-called spiritual or mundane, can be compared to a radio. There is nobody inside, that produces what seems to come out of it.

There is nobody inside a radio. It simply repeats what it receives. The same applies to Alexius – and what appears to be you, though it may not be your experience. In the context of the radio metaphor you probably assume, you are inside the radio, and that it is you who broadcast what is coming out of it. That is why, you never feel complete, because there is nobody there.

No matter what songs are coming out of a radio, the singer of the songs is not inside of it – neither is the singer singing the songs now. That was done long time ago.

A broadcast like this one may produce a broadcast from another radio saying, ´who is making the signals that the radio receives´. For those looking to be somebody definitive, a question like this seems to imply, there is a self to be found somewhere. But broadcasting, for example, a sentence like ´is there life on the Moon?´, does not prove there is life on the moon.

To make long short, there is no meaning to be found in any broadcast, neither Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. If there were, a world where there seems to be more than one would be meaningful. And how can it be meaningful, when there is no more than that which is one.
