INTRO TO HACK #2.1, Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality

Even though the man in the hospital dress probably is in another state of mind than his family, who is visiting and though they appear to be very different it makes no difference, when all appearances are perceived to be symbols of that which is life. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no life in the world where you experience to be, though that is what is making it possible to experience it – just like the electronic media being used to play a video game is not in the world of the game. Nothing in the game is real.

In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings life is another word for that which is one, non-duality, spirit, formlessness or one perpetual present. Some may associate those words with god, but in the context of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, not a god or anything else is the source of life, as it is that which is one and since it takes more than one to make something life does not create anything. See also All experiences are equally unreal.

Just like the hack Pretending to be someone definitive the new one Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality presents a way to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, while you still appear to be someone there. In other words, in the transition from appearing in a world where there seem to be more than one to the formlessness of which is one, you can have your cake and eat it too – you are in the world and not of it.

This hack starts off as a continuance of the previous hack Pretending to be someone definitive and then slowly evolves into seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as a symbol of that which is one. Just like – within the context of such a world – you do not perceive the word wine as something you can drink but a symbol of it.

There is no food in the menu card on the table, but there are symbols of it – and so the card is pointing towards food in the same way, as my non teachings are pointing towards life. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

There is no food in the menu card on the table. Yet there are symbols of it – and so the card is pointing towards food in the same way, as Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are pointing towards life – or rather that there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You cannot drink the word wine, but the four letters, added together in this way, may remind you of the taste of wine, even though there is no wine in the letters. The word wine of course only triggers an actual memory of wine, if you have ever had what it symbolises – otherwise it will just trigger speculations. Likewise, if you know the formlessness of life, every form in the world, even though there is no life in them, symbolises it. But if you do not know life, every form in the world will trigger speculations.

The word wine is a construction of letters made to symbolise the experience of wine. Likewise the world – including astral planes and whatnot – is a construction of thoughts, that symbolises life. It is not in the symbols and that is why you cannot drink life in the world. Neither can you see, hear or feel it, but if life is what you want you will perceive everything in the world as symbols of it.

The experience of something tangible is an imagination based on the belief, that if you feel something it is real, but as there is no more than that which is one and it it requires more than one to feel something, what you appear to feel is an illusion. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Someone who is to be compared to  the enlightenment of that which is one has vague memories of the oneness of life and due to those the apparent differences in the world does not make a difference, which means a world of separation becomes a symbol of that which cannot be separated, namely the oneness of life. But without the enlightenment of that which is one, you cannot practically know, there is no more than that which is one, so that is a matter of belief.

It is, however, also a matter of belief, that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. According to scientists it is nothing but empty space, so to experience something tangible there is make-believe.

You can only know the formlessness of life, when not believing to someone definitive – and not being someone there is nobody to know it. No worries. Life is the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless it is everything. Hence there is nothing to know because that requires more than one.

But while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you can know that such a world is not life but symbols of it, and when the world becomes symbolic, it does not seem to be opaque and so there is nothing that appears to hide that which is life.

Life has no future, it is one perpetual present.

Even though these two cats appear to be very different, this is only possible to observe due to life, so if you do not look for appearance but content, their difference makes no difference, because they and everything in the image symbolises the same, namely the life that makes it possible to experience it.

If the world experienced on the screen of a smart media is out of focus, you may suddenly be more aware of the smart media itself. Without it, you cannot participate in the world that appears to be its screen. Though it is not in that world you could say, that everything in it is symbols of that which makes it possible to appear, namely the smart media.

The world you experience lives through you, so when you die, it dies as well. No worries. If you want, you can bring it all with you – not as the world was experienced though, but as the spark of life, that was used to illuminate your experience of it. In other words, if you bring your perception of the world with you, it will not remain like that, but as that which made it possible to have this perception, namely that which is life.

When you do not want anything, fear is gone. Fear is related to wanting and hoping. Being afraid of not getting what you want and being afraid of losing it, if you get it. So if you do not want anything, you are free. This does not mean, that you should avoid wanting to see your children for example, but it means, you are not attached to any specific outcome of wanting or hoping for something, because whatever the outcome is, it is a symbol of that which is life. If you out of old habits still are attached to the outcome, it is not a problem, because attachment is also a symbol of that which is life.

Whatever you think, feel or do or not think, feel or do, are a nothing but a symbol of that which is life.

In dreams, persons and events are normally experienced to be very real, though everything there is an illusion, and you are not in the world of it but in your bed.

Every appearance in a dream seems to have a personality, but that is all they have. There is nothing inside. No self or soul, and no god or anything else to guide them. Nothing can be learned in a dream since it is an illusion. For the same reason, there is nothing to learn or transform. What seems to be ´there´ is all gone, when a dream is over.

Likewise, the formlessness of that which is you is not in a world defined by time and space, though you appear to be someone definitive there.

That which is real is the reason, that what is not real can be perceived as if it is.

Since you experience to be reading this you believe to be someone in the dream called The World,  Even though the dream is lifeless, you can only experience to be ´there´ because of life, so all you can realise is that you are nothing and that which is making the dream possible is everything.

So where is life? Nowhere, because it requires more than one to be somewhere, and life is the formlessness of that which is one. Fortunately, there is no difference between that which is you and that which is life.

There is no awakening from the dream called The World because that which is you is not there.

But while you appear to be in a world without life, you can perceive all the appearances there as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience them, namely that which is life, and so the apparent differences of the appearances do not make a difference, which means your appearance fades out – and without it there is nothing to hide there is no difference between that which is you and the oneness of life.

It makes no sense chasing appearances, when what you want you get from life and life only.

When you see life as the source of all experiences, they basically become the same, so it makes no difference whether you experience to be alone or not. In fact the need to meet with other others is replaced with the need to have a connection with life. This replacement is deeply relaxing but also filled with sorrow of losing the excitement of chasing selected appearances.

Fortunately, life is also the source of feeling loss, so accepting this feeling and life as the source of being able to experience it, you know appearances leads nowhere, and the source of them – that which is life – leads everywhere.

Everywhere cannot be defined, and so following life, you cannot be defined. Consequently, you are not a person to be defined by time and space. What you appear to be you do not know, neither do you care, because you know it makes no sense chasing appearances.

If you acknowledge the oneness of life as the sole cause of all experiences, they are all a symbol of the same life, so no matter the experience – so-called positive or negative – the apparent difference does not make a difference. The past, now and tomorrow is the same, when experienced as symbols of the oneness of life.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In that which is life, there is nothing to wait for, because whatever seems to appear is that which is life.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no life in the world, yet it is nothing but symbols of it.
