Meditation is a con trick carried out by the ego

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

In order to experience something there must be more than one. Consequently any experience in meditation is a maintenance and not an escape of duality. No worries. You need not to escape duality, because that which is you is not there. It is not possible – just like within the context of duality you are not in the greens of this image. Yet you may pretend being ´there´*. But where you pretend to be you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Traditional eastern meditation, as it is carried out all over the world, seems to be all about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas the western meditation founded on Christianity seems to be about filling it with thoughts of god.

Both the experience of emptying or filling the mind is a construction of thoughts.

The mind though is not a fact but a construction of thoughts, that you have chosen to believe is real. So whether subtracting from this belief or adding to it, the result is just another belief.

To think that you can stop thoughts is an imagination based on the belief, that you are someone definitive – if you did not believe this, there would be no thoughts to stop, as there would be nobody thinking them …

If you do not believe thoughts to be yours, you cannot appear to be someone specific in a world of duality, so without them you could not meditate. In other words, meditation is a multiplication of thoughts.

Who but the very dirty, needs to meditate every day to purify themselves. I do not even wash my clothes daily. Why should I clean them, when they are not dirty?

There´s nothing to purify.

It is a con trick conducted by the ego, that meditation will purify, change or transform you. The ego in the disguise of a do-gooder – sometimes called a guru – promise you, that thoughts will disappear when you meditate, so that there is nothing to disturb you from being at peace. Yet most experience the opposite, namely that there appears to be more thoughts, when they start meditating. If they dare to complain about this, they are in a patronising way told that it is part of the healing process.

Anything that involves more than one is an illusion, so the same applies to Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings. In other words, they are not different from anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, except if they are useful for you in regards to exposing the illusion of such a world.

There is, however, nothing to heal but the sick belief that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher of meditation has not something, that you do not have yourself. You need no help, because all what is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a the world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is one, and everybody has that.

What to conclude? Not much really, maybe to say that thoughts have no power, unless you use them to prove you are someone specific, because doing so you become a victim of them. Meditation, however, will not change that. On the contrary, mediation will enhance the belief, that you are someone specific, because the reason you meditate is to fix the problems resulting from believing to be someone definitive.

There is no problem, but the belief in being someone specific.

So if anything should be stopped, it is the belief, that thoughts are yours. They only seem so, because you are holding onto them, as if they are in you and therefore are you, and consequently appear to prove your existence as a someone in the world. The same purpose is also the behind the idea of stopping them, except that in this case it is not about your existence as someone in the world, but about becoming someone different from it, namely a so-called spiritual person.

That which is you is not someone definitive but the formlessness of that which is one. And as formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so is you. Consequently it is not possible to become centred, higher or anything else.

But to make long short, there is nothing to be or become, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.
