Inclusiveness is a perfect moment

A cup of coffee cannot be defined as coffee when there is no focus on it – neither can someone be defined to not focus on it, as it requires focus to be someone. The graphic is grabbed from cyberspace.

PART 1:
When you have a look at the world, it is thoughts that tell you what it is that you see. And they imply there is a world full of appearances divided into categories of for example good or bad and attractive or repelling. But you do not have to listen to those thoughts though. If you do not hang onto them in an attempt to compile them into a story, they will just pass by. In other words, all you have to do to not see a world where there seems to be more than one is to not use thoughts to confirm its apparent differences.

To appear as someone special much concentration is needed, whereas no concentration is required to not to appear as someone at all.

When defocusing* you cannot remember what and where you are, and so there is nobody to compile thoughts into a definition of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither is there nobody to see if they just pass by, but that is how it appears to Alexius while writing this intro and enjoying a cortado.

Instead of searching for thoughts, that can define the cortado in front of him, he goes with the flow of the world enfolding itself in the froth of it. When this is not converted into something familiar based on past definitions, coffee is not perceived to be different from the froth of it or the world appearing to be in it, nor outside of it.

This does not mean that the apparent differences of the world are not experienced to be there, but that they do not make a difference when you are inclusive and not exclusive.

Defocusing may seem to space you out, so that you see new worlds within the world, which is a grand way

If hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment seems to make you spaced out, you are on the right track in regards to undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Yet, you are not on the right track, if you space out on the way to pick up your kids from the kindergarten, as they require you to focus on differences, so that you can be more than them and guide them on their journey in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Spaced out is just one side-effect of defocusing. Another one is clarity. When you are not focused on anything, in particular, your mind is not busy discussing what is right and wrong, and so you intuitively do and say what is called for. Not because you know what to do or say, as that would require focus, but because you function in automatic gear in much the same way as when you are connected with the empty breath.**

Being in automatic gear it is not a problem to multitask. In fact, it seems to be the most natural thing to do, since you are not result-minded anymore.

Yet being process-minded is not a requirement for undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. No being but inclusion is required. So if you are result-minded and feel guilty about it, you just include that. As anything in a world where there seems to be more than one needs to be contrasted by something in order for it to be experienced as something specific, process-minded and innocence are also included when you include result-minded and feeling guilty.

You do not have to be aware of this for the inclusion of a contrast to work, as the two opposing sides of a contrast are like two sides of the same coin, so the inclusion of one side includes them both.

Since the two opposing sides of a contrast cancel out each other when added together, the sum of them is nothing, and as this momentarily rubs off on other contrasts making up what you believe to be, you are in a state of not-knowing. Thus there is nobody to judge anything in terms of good and bad, therefore everything is fine as it is. That is why every moment is the perfect moment.

PART 2:
There is no free will in the world defined by time and space regarding what is going to happen next, because just like in the world of a movie all future events are fixed – even though movies, where the viewer can choose different developments of it, are being planned, all the changes you can choose are pre-made according to the choice of the producer and not yours.

The only thing you actually can change is your perception of what happens in the movie. The same applies to a world defined by time and space – also if your experiences there seem to be of a spiritual nature. It is part of the script and has nothing to do with spirituality since it is formless and the world is not. In other words, no matter how and where you appear, this is just as illusionary as anything a movie or a video game. Nobody is there.

If you choose to perceive the apparent differences in the world of a movie to make a difference, its world seems real to you. But if the apparent differences is not perceived to make a difference, you see that it is nothing but an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you choose to believe, the apparent differences in a movie are making a difference, its world seems real to you. But if you choose to believe, that the apparent differences do not make a difference, the story of the movie is not important. You may want it to finish, because it is so unrealistic and hide that which is real.

Likewise, the formlessness of oneness, which is all there is since formlessness is endless, seems to be hidden by a world defined by time and space – or rather the belief that its apparent differences make a difference. The more the apparent differences in a world defined by time and space is not believed to make a difference, the less time and space appears to be real.

Ways of perceiving the world
Perceiving differences to make a difference requires hard work because you must always be on the lookout for what to judge as good or evil so you can exclude what you decide to be bad from the story of who you are. The reward is that you appear to be good and as that is not possible in the formlessness of that which is one, as it takes more than one to be anything, you also appear to be more than that which is one.

But the price is suffering and a constant search for the bad things you can blame for your state of mind. See also the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

Perceiving differences to not make a difference requires no work, but including all the apparent differences, which is quite easy, as it is just to not exclude any part of your experience of the present moment. The reward is a perfect moment, and as that is a state of not-knowing there is nobody to feel wrong or that something is missing.

In other words, you do not need to be or have more – except for more perfect moments. And the more you have of those, the less you need to be and have. You become nobody, and as the world is in the eye of the beholder, nobody is seen, and so there is not someone definitive to hide the formlessness of that which is one.

Alexius´ three cats seem to be very different. Yet he loves them all – not in the same way though. He acknowledges their different needs and love them accordingly. Yet these differences make no difference to him, because he perceives both the cats and himself as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience that there is more than one.

This does not mean that his cats and he are at one – or that he is at one with anything else, as that requires more than one – but that even though they all appear to be very different, the apparent differences make no difference, because they are symbols of the same, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Ways to perceive differences make no difference?
In part 1 of this article, defocussing was suggested as a means to cancel out the opposing sides of contrasts. This may be the fastest way to undo the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one so that the belief in such a world does not appear to hide that which is one.

But if you like to enjoy the world while undoing it defocusing may be a bit abrupt to you, as it only takes 20 minutes, 45 at most, of total defocus before there is no knowledge of a world defined by time and space, neither of you appearing to be in such a world or anywhere else.

So to make the beginning of your journey without distance more gentle, you could instead choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is one, as that means, even though the appearances of the world seems to be different, it makes no difference because they all symbolise the same. In other words, when everything in the world is perceived to be symbolic, you do not have to think about contrasts and make sure everything is included.

In this way, the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is being undone, while you can have fun appearing to be someone there. This you can read about in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

The same occurs the more you choose to pretend to be someone in the world instead of believing to be there. You can read about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

If you like, you can also check out hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss, where there is much more about how to cancel out contrasts by fully including one side of them.


*) It is common sense, that you only defocus in situations, where your attention is not needed in the world. As long as you appear to be in a world, where there seem to be more than one, you play along on its premise, which requires much focus and concentration, as otherwise there does not appear to be a world, where there seems to be more than one.

**) In hack #4, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss there is more about the empty breath.


NOTES:

  • One very easy way to not to focus is to play music over 65 dB for a prolonged time – especially if it is music that you consider to be senseless.
  • This article is part of hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment.
