Not believing to be someone is effortless

A form needs to be confirmed as real by perceiving other forms around it.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, everybody appears to have a look of their own and be able to meet someone else with a look that they like.

The formlessness of oneness seems claustrophobic when the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is not undone.

In that which is one, however, there is nowhere to go and no one to meet since that requires more than one. And since it also requires more than one for this to be peaceful or anything else, oneness is anything specific. This is very frustrating if you want to be something special, spiritual for example, because to manifest that, you need to perceive, somebody else sees you like that. But since there is no more than that which is one, it is not possible, unless you imagine being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

But this is a bumpy experience. Something always has to be corrected or changed so you can uphold the feeling of being unique because, in a world where there seems to be more than one, nothing remains the same.

In an attempt to hide feeling flawed, many use spiritual or psychological ideas to not see the moment as it is but instead as a lesson in becoming perfect. Fencing off the moment as it is, however, it is actually confirmed. And since every moment is the perfect moment, nobody needs to wait for perfection. See hack #4.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Trying to change a moment into what you think it should be according to the concepts of positive thinking, for example, is a mental process. Since the body, therefore, is excluded from your experience, it gets stiff. But feeling entertained by the moment as it is, regardless it seems positive or negative, involves the body. Hence it becomes flexible of joy.

Observing what and where you appear to be, so you can be detached from it, enhances the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. To expose the illusion of that, it is better to play the game of the world, which is to get more money, more power, more love, more awareness or whatever you fancy will make you more satisfied. Giving it your best shot, it is evident that getting more of is an illusion, because it does make you not more satisfied.

When you stop what is causing self-hatred. namely the belief in a self, there is no hatred to let go of.

When you do not believe to be someone, there is no self at all. What is left is not a non-self or no-self. What is left is the nothingness from which you are conceived as someone. Hence there does not appear to be something which hides there never was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no way to survive in a world where there seems to be more than one without physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically continually grabbing something from someone that appears to be outside of you – for example food, a point of view, love, money or power. Consequently, everybody believing to be someone in such a world is afraid of not having enough. And if they get it, they are worried it will be taken from them – just like they took it from somebody else. Read more about that here.

Many feel guilty about taking as much as possible for themselves at the expense of others. Some suppress that with the pleasure, that comes from being acknowledged by society when you are incredibly successful at profiting on others. Others start looking for ways to become a better person. Maybe by meditating, sharing and treating everybody as equals.

This, however, is based on the belief in being someone. If you do not believe that, but pretend to be it, you can, just like in a game like Monopoly, exploit others without feeling guilt. It actually feels stimulating. Read more about that in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Those who show off as they have more than others like to send love and positive thoughts to the ones judged to have less, so their applause seem to hide the feeling of inferiority

But since you can only feel inferior, if you believe there is more than one, and it takes more than one to send something to someone, the feeling of inferiority is enhanced by doing that. Read more about that here.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you search for something, you increase the belief in separation, because it takes more than one to do that. What you appear to achieve, therefore, seem to hide there is no more than that which is one. But if you do not search for anything, you get nothing. Thus there does not seem to be more than one.

Most have a feeling that something is missing, so they want to be and have more. But you cannot get more because that which is you is no different from that which is one. It is formless and therefore endless, so you have everything. Consequently, it is not to miss anything, unless you believe to be something you are not.

One way to undo this belief is to pretend to be what and where you are because what you pretend, you are not. Hence nobody is missing something or have the need for more. Read about pretending that in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

When blaming your parents, society or something else for having conditioned you, something judged to come from a world outside of you seem to turn you into a victim. Since you, therefore, can justify anything you believe in thinking, feeling or doing with the world, you can behave in ways that otherwise would be unacceptable to you.

But others are not to blame for how you have been conditioned. It is you who have chosen to be conditioned by your parents, society and whatnot. Maybe you wanted the acknowledgement, that seemed to come from this choice – or perhaps you just wanted to live a comfortable life as a consumer who only has to ratify the decisions of others.

Check out hack #3.2 Choosing or not for how to undo choices.

All appearances have a beginning and end in a world defined by time and space. Nothing lasts. Everything is temporary – including time. It also has an end, and so has the concept of living in the now because it is founded on time, which not only ultimately but also in the context of a world defined by time and space is an illusion

Time is fabricated in proportion to selected points in the universe. If other locations are the reference, time is different. The time that collectively has been decided to be the right one is based on the idea that life centres around planet Earth. But even that is an illusion, so every fourth year it is corrected with an extra day in the year.

Meditating or doing other things to get rid of what you perceive to be (or part of it) does the opposite. Since identifying with your personality is the reason for meditating, it is enhanced. Read more about meditation here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Revolting against your parents, your perception of the world is founded on what you try to escape. Since your personality, therefore, becomes an anti-version of theirs, you and your parents are two sides of the same coin.

The same applies to be detached from the world. It is based on what you are detached from. Hence the detached and the world are two sides of the same coin.

It also applies to the idea of not being physical but spiritual. The point of reference for this is to be physical, so being that or spiritual are two sides of the same coin.

To make long short, when you try to escape what you appear to be, nothing changes. You are still part of it. That is until you stop believing that what you seem to be is that which is you.

You are not someone definitive but the formlessness of oneness, so to appear in a world defined by time and space, you must pretend to be something you are not. Just like within the context of such a world, you must pretend, you want to conquer the world when playing a game like Risk – even though this may not be part of your personality. But if you do not pretend it, the game is not fun, and so it is probably better to forget it.

Likewise, if you do not keep pretending, you want to be and have more in the game of being someone in a world defined by time and space, you might be better off forgetting the game. For example, by entering a state of not-knowing. See hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

You want to avoid the personality because you think it is an illusion – and you are right – but it is also an illusion to avert an illusion.

But you can do both, play the game and take a break every now and then. You have nothing to lose. There is no risk in playing the game of being and having more than that which is one because there is no more than that which is one. Read hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one about how to feel entertained by the game. Entirely playing it, you realise that being and having more than one results in the sense of nothing. Hence there does not appear to be more to share with somebody except nothing.

And so the game is over. That which always was and will be, namely that which is one, does not seem to be clouded by a world where there seems to be more than one anymore.

When you do not try to solve something, there does not seem to be more than one. Hence the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one fall apart. This does not mean you should not try to solve something if you want to have this belief undone. But that you should pretend to be someone solving something because what you pretend to be, you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you have been following a TV show, you may have noticed that the episodes often end in a troubled way so you feel you must watch more to feel relieved. Read more about the construction of TV shows here.

When not looking for relief, you are reminded that which is you is no different from that which is one because, in oneness, there are no troubles to be resolved in the end. Actually, there is no end, nor beginning. It is one perpetual present.

Teenager Post #11156 (from the internet): »When I was little, I thought the moon was following me when I was in the car.«

As a grown-up, you have learned to correct this experience. Also, seeing a street getting narrower at the end, or the world as flat. If you have not learned to adjust these, and many other experiences, you would not be able to navigate in the world.

There is a fundamental experience, though, that needs to be corrected, in the above teenage post, if you do not want to be terminated when the brain stops to function. There is no ´I´ which sees something (read more about that here). It is a construction of thoughts (read more about that here) that vanishes when the brain runs out of oxygen. In the states, before that, it may present abstract images of you as if going through tunnels of light. But it is only because it is malfunctioning due to lack of oxygen (read more about that here).

If not believing but pretending to be the experience, the brain creates of an ´I´ or otherworldly images of it, nothing dies when it cannot generate thoughts to uphold this experience anymore. Thus it is as it always was and will be, namely one perpetual present.

The squares in this image have been multiplicated from one square by Alexius with the help of a special algorithm on his phone. So though you may get the impression, that there are several different squares with each their own individuality, they all consist of the same. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The nature of thought is multiplication, which in a world where there seems to be more than one does not change anything – just like within the context of duality nothing is lost or changed, when you multiply a piece of music on a computer. Except of course if there is someone who claims to have the right to that specific combination of thoughts.

In non-duality, however, there is nothing to own. The speed of it is so fast, that it is impossible to grab onto something – let alone being someone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Non-duality can be compared to one computer pixel and duality to an extension of it (read more about that here). Even though everything in the extension is still the same pixel, it as if there is movement in time because it has the form of a spiral. Thus you can only see a certain distance back and forth. The extension also appears to be dimensional, when you imagine to view it from a distance in different angles (read more about that in hack #2.3 Life is flat), even though a computer pixel is flat and non-dimensional.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The illusion of duality is a network of concepts, that seems to attest to you being a real person who has thoughts of its own in a world of duality. Please do add Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings to these concepts. If you do, you will still seem to be limited by the structure of duality.

That being said, as long as you seem to be a person in a world of duality, there are things, that needs to be attended to in a structured way, for example to publish Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. That is not a problem, however, if you do not go on organising everything else. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

Do not spend time on thinking, how long time you must deal with a world of duality. Doing so is part of duality, and that which is you is timeless.

Duality will never be terminated because it does not exist. There is no world of duality – only of non-duality. Since there is no time in non-duality, it took no time to explore the concept of duality. So the same moment, the idea of duality was conceived, it was turned down as impossible. The world, you seem to see, can be compared to after images of that exploration – structured and ordered in a way, so it appears to have been created. Read more about the world of afterimages in All experiences are equally unreal.

In other words, you stop being in a world of duality a long time ago. Actually, you were never there, although it appears so in the afterimages you hold onto.
